Warning against greed

It's late.  That's 11:17.  But for a 5:15 wake up, it's late.

We are in a house now, with a view of the river.  There's a yard with two garden spots.  Tomatoes, squash vines, basil, rosemary, sage, tarragon and whatever else is here, moved in pots from an apartment that could provide just enough light.

Sunday's Gospel reading is Luke 12:13-21
13 Someone from the crowd said to him, “ Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”
14 Jesus said to him, “Man, who appointed me as judge or referee between you and your brother?
15 Then Jesus said to them, “Watch out! Guard yourself against all kinds of greed. After all, one’s life isn’t determined by one’s possessions, even when someone is very wealthy. 16 Then he told them a parable: “A certain rich man’s land produced a bountiful crop. 17 He said to himself, What will I do? I have no place to store my harvest! 18 Then he thought, Here’s what I’ll do. I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. That’s where I’ll store all my grain and goods. 19 I’ll say to myself, You have stored up plenty of goods, enough for several years. Take it easy! Eat, drink, and enjoy yourself. 20 But God said to him, ‘Fool, tonight you will die. Now who will get the things you have prepared for yourself?’ 21 This is the way it will be for those who hoard things for themselves and aren’t rich toward God. ” 

It has been four weeks of no free time.  

I have an anatomy and physiology test on Tuesday; brains, spinal cord, nerves, smell, sight, taste, meninges, vestibules, nerves, hearing.  You can put a tube in the ear drum and it won't affect your hearing.  Your vibrations will be just as strong.  

The human body is a miracle.
