A Morning Cup of Tea: A Ruler at Capernaum

Good morning! Happy Valentine's Day! My husband and I have already celebrated last week but it's still a special day. I had wanted to cook a special breakfast today but we have a doctor appointment for J. What plans have you got for today?
  Today we are finishing up chapter 4 of John. Jesus and his disciples had gone back to Galilee, and stopped in Cana, where he had turned the water into wine. A ruler met them there, whose son was sick at Capernaum. The man's son was going to die. The man asked Jesus to come with him and heal his son.
  Jesus said, Except ye see signs and wonders ye will not believe (v 48). But the man insisted that Jesus should come or his son would die. Jesus then told him, Go thy way; thy son liveth  (v 50).
  As the nobleman was returning home, his servants met him and told him that his son was alive. The man asked when his son got better. They told him the seventh hour of the previous day. The man knew that was the very hour in which Jesus had told him, Thy son liveth. The man and his whole household believed in Jesus then.
  John tells us that this was the second miracle that Jesus did.
