    Commemoration of Aldhelm, Abbot of Mamsbury, Bishop of Sherborne, 709
    Meanwhile the disciples were urging [Jesus], saying, “Rabbi, eat.”
    But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.”
    So the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought him something to eat?”
    Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.”
    —John 4:31-34 (ESV)
    I find the doing of the will of God leaves me with no time for disputing about His plans.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), The Marquis of Lossie, Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Co., 1879, p. 243 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have shown me more resources than I know how to employ in my life.
