What I Did This Week, no. 40
let's get to this quickly, shall we?
Hey, look—it’s 40! Let’s do this quickly, shall we?
First, Sunday...Genevieve stayed home with Tirzah under the suspicion that she has the chicken pox. The other three kids went to church with me, and were well behaved for their surrogate grandmother (thanks, Nana!). Monday, we tried to enjoy my day off, but the focus was on caring for little miss chicken pox and trying to get the others to catch it. Tuesday, I was back in the office, doing my normal office-y things, the same which goes for Wednesday. Wednesday night we continued through the Catalog of Testimonies; we should be able to finish it next week. Thursday morning, I was the teacher for the Breakfast Bible Study; we finished 2 Thessalonians and introduced 1 Timothy—it should be interesting going through that as Paul’s statements about the roles of men and women are probably the strongest in this letter than any other. Friday came, and it was time to put words to screen in writing the sermon and prepare for Bible Study that night; we spent a lot of time investigating the emergence of birds from the waters beneath according to Genesis 1:20 (most English translations don’t word it that way, and the Hebrew doesn’t seem explicit one way or the other, but the Latin Vulgate does put it that way, and it makes sense given that fish and bird were created on the Fifth Day, and the way the rest of creation goes). Saturday was a day of preparation for Sunday, with the usual procedures; we’ll probably keep Tirzah home again, though at this point, the other three seem good to go.
