My sabbath was its usual kind of wonderful. We took our darling granddaughter, now seven months old, and had her stay with us during the music. She makes so much noise while we are singing that I do believe she is praising the Lord with us!
Pastor D. finished his series on the DaVinci Code and he brought out some very interesting thoughts. He pointed out that the book was published in 2003 and that was the year of the major scandals in the Roman Catholic church. There were very few priest involved but alot of noise was made about them – as needed to be! Still, the timing is very interesting. What better way to have even more people fall away from the faith than to have such a scandalous book released at the same time people are being drawn away by the scandals within the church!
I haven’t read the book yet but, since my ds is interested in reading it, I feel I have to. Will have to wait until a copy is in the library, though, because I sure as heck am not going to buy it!
Today was kind of fun. I took dd and dgd (dear daughter and dear granddaughter) to Target (a small department store). DD feels that dgd needs a jumper seat – what we used to call a Johnny Jump Up – which fits over the top of the door. Well, I called "Grandpa" and asked him if we were going to spend a significant amount of money (to us, at least) to purchase this for the dgd. In a flat voice he said, "Yes." I had to chuckle when I hung up because he can’t say no even though I can. This child is the joy this family lacked for a long, long time. She is a blessing I can’t describe.
Well, will try to continue later. DS is hounding me to get on for a while.
