Want a blessing? Read Mae’s post.
Have you ever wondered about the children under 2 years old that were killed by decree of Herod, after Jesus was born? He wanted every baby around the age of Jesus to die, thinking that would wipe out the possibility of a new king. But God had another plan. Herod just didn’t know who he was up against.
The babies were martyrs. They died for the cause of Christianity. Can you imagine the blessings those babies have in Heaven?

We have our Friday night Bible Study tonight. It’s supposed to rain off and on all weekend, but for now it has let up, so Steve is out mowing the front yard. (EDIT: Rachael called when she was on her way home from work last night, and she said the street their hospital is on, had it’s ditches pretty much full of water. They are deep, so that’s a lot of rain.)
Last night I thought I was making coffee. But nothing happened. Our coffee pot just quit. So Steve went to Walmart to get a new one. I told him to get one similar to the one we had. He came back with this:
And Brandon is going to build us this pie safe:
Sorry….that’s as big a picture as I could get. I collect antiques, and he’s going to build this “antique” pie safe to put our new tv in. I had been looking for a cabinet to put it in, and I don’t like the modern looking entertainment systems in our house. It just wouldn’t fit. This cabinet is not quite big enough, but he’s going to make it wider, to hold a larger tv. It will also hold the DVD player, satellite receiver, and probably DVD’s also. It will have punched tin panels on the front (the cabinet…not the tv ) in a star pattern, which is one of my favorite quilt designs.
And that’s the extent of the excitement in our lives right now. I think.
