John 2

In John 2:1-11 Jesus turned the water into wine at a wedding at Cana in Galiliee. I found it amazing that Jesus performed his first miraculous sign at a family celebration. He decided to  "Reveal His Glory, and His disciples put their faith in Him."  Thus began his divine 3 year ministry to preach the gospel.
 This story came to mind as I was pouring over these pictures taken last weekend. My sister and her family drove down from NY for a quick crazy visit. Even though our time was short, we celebrated over conversation and great home cooking... much like the wedding in Cana.(im presuming)
 What do these two have in common? Almost everything. Last Friday night we gathered and celebrated,laughed and talked. I could only imagine that the same thing was happening at that wedding feast almost 2 thousand years ago. Families came from far and wide to celebrate,laugh,eat and drink together. There was reminiscing... much like last weekend.
 At Cana, Jesus decided to reveal His glory for the very first time. A crucial moment in history. His glory can still be seen in the same way today. Where families come together and celebrate, Jesus's love shines. Take out your bibles and re-read this wonderful moment in history. Who ever said the bible is not relevant today?

  2. I love dinner chatter. Family chatter. And good old story telling. Before I had a family--I would think how wonderful it must be to have lots of your children at the table with you eating, talking and just spending time together. We eat EVERY meal together. I am blessed! And so are you!
