Beginning of Miracles

... the third day there was a marriage in Qana of Galilee,...and there were set there six waterpots of stone...and Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them to the brim...When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine and knew not whence it was (but the servants which drew the water knew)...This beginning of miracles did Jesus at Qana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory.... (John 2:1-11)

This is the second mistaken bombing of civilians in Qana. In 1996, the accidental bombing of a UN base there killed 105 people. Lord, we need another miracle.

Should there even be such a phrase as 'accidental bombing'? What makes it an accident anyway - if we kill the WRONG people? Who are the right people to murder? These questions keep me up at night. Why they don't keep our world leaders up at night, I cannnot understand.

Twitches and tammy have said exactly what I want to say. I didn't know that was the place where the water was turned into wine ... thanks for that - isn't it strange history and the present how it entertwines - we must never give up hope.
