(Remember: Stay or get close to The Lord!  You know, I have a note in my bible on a page in the Gospel of John 2:1-12, that says…. the best advice ever given. And that note is referring to a statement that Jesus’ mother Mary gave to the servants at the The Wedding of Cana. In this account, Jesus, his mother and his disciples are all invited to a wedding. But the wine runs out. And so Mary asks Jesus to please do something about the problem. Then she turns to the wedding servants and says… “Whatever He tells you to do… DO IT!” That was great advice back then, and it is still great advice for us today. )
