Aramaic and Zombies…

March 22, 2012

…a match made in heaven.

How was your Wednesday? Mine was incredibly long as usual. But now it is over.

You guys, it’s supposed to be 78 degrees here on Saturday! What?! You know that’s right.

Happy birthday, Alecia-poo! Don’t worry, I’m on my way down to the Springs to celebrate your very special day!

I read the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the fiery furnace in Aramaic yesterday. That’s something I never thought I’d say. Also, did you know that the fiery furnace story was written in Aramaic and not Hebrew? Me neither. Why don’t they teach you these things in Sunday School? (They probably do in Rio’s Sunday School curriculum. It was written by people who think they are Jewish.)

This was Heather’s drawing of a zombie yesterday. Even when I know what the word is, I wait until she’s done because it’s fascinating to watch her be the best artist ever.

The other night I dreamed that I was moving into a house with the very same layout as the first one I ever lived in on Dupont in Minneapolis. It was a huge Victorian, and I was going to get to decorate it. I was so very happy in this dream. These are apparently the secret wishes of my subconscious — arranging furniture and picking out paint colors.

Why is this blog post still going on? Anyone?

Yesterday my friend Rebekah and I were going over edits on some curriculum lessons I wrote awhile back. We looked at the story of Moses and the burning bush — God had long ago made a promise to Abraham, but now over 400 years have passed, and Abraham’s descendents are slaves in a faraway land. They cry out and God hears them — he remembers his promise. So he calls to Moses out of a bush, and the plan of the Exodus is put into motion. It’s so cool. And it reminded me that God’s timing is not our own. It was a long time (for us) in between God’s promise to Abraham and the Exodus. But God knew. He remembered. He was faithful. He always is.

OK. Until we meet again!

    That drawing is amazing. I’m now even more embarrassed about my lame drawings.
