We have had a wind storm all day. The rain is coming now. I can’t write a post on computer but my phone works so I will try it this way.
I love baking. I love baking bread. There is something about baking bread that makes me so happy. Last year, I started realizing that maybe me and bread were going to part company. I really didn’t want that to happen. Almost a year later most of my health problems have gone away. It’s been almost a year, I still miss making bread. So I signed up at church to bake and cook food. I hope it helps me to just do a bit.
(This was our newly plowed pasture. I love all of the colors of the trees. The wind took most of those leaves today. )
At Bible study, We are in Exodus. We are learning about Passover. I keep thinking how Passover fits with the Christmas story. The baby born in the manger was the fulfillment of that first Passover when the Israelites left Egypt. Then I started thinking how many kings tried to stop the birth of baby boys in the Bible. There is Pharaoh in Exodus. In the New Testament, Herod wants to kill all baby boys two and under. All to stop God’s plan to save the world. To stop the plan of salvation.
When the angels appear to the shepherds in the fields they say to them, “Don’t be afraid! I bring good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior,Who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you:You will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
Just what I was thinking about tonight. I love how everything is a picture brought out in color for us to see. I hope this makes some kind of sense.
