Day 27-Part I

The Abbey of Gethsemani
I am “jumping tract” today in honor of the Kentucky Derby. Today is the 141st Run for the Roses. Several years ago, in honor of this KY tradition, the monks created a new flavor of fudge, Mint Julep.
The monks make and sell cheese, fruitcake and fudge as a way of earning their living.
As part of their gracious hospitality, when you are on retreat, they provide samples of their fudge and fruitcake every Tuesday and every Saturday. It is also a good marketing technique because the Abbey Gift Shop is only a short distance from the Retreat House where all of their products can be purchased.
I am not saying I have a problem, let’s just say I have become very fond of their Mint Julep Fudge and I find myself looking forward to Tuesdays and Saturdays. If you would like to try some for yourself, just google to Gethsemani Farms and their Website should come right up. If I were you, I would order soon. Today is Saturday and Tuesday is just around the corner. Happy Derby Day!
I count it all joy,
