John 2:3 When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

Usually after a party or cookout or holiday dinner we are eating leftovers for an extended period of time because we got way too much to begin with.

Jackson Browne had a popular song that connected with many people titled “Running on Empty.” Yes, you should google it. As the pandemic wears on you may feel your reservoir drying up.

Hey Jesus, they (we) are out of wine. What can you do about it?
