It is snowing outside and it is so beautiful. I love to watch the snow fall but I hate to go out in it. Apparently my kids have the same feelings. They are sitting in front of the t.v. and playing video games rather than playing outside. Oh well, they go back to school next Tuesday and life will be very different. We will be back to our very busy schedule of homework and the like.
I recently read the book "The Robe" by Lloyd C. Douglas. It was a very interesting and enlightening book. I felt a little like I was studying scripture which was actually nice for me. I have a lot of trouble finding time to do that. The Robe is a story of a Roman Soldier who wins Christ's robe after his crucifixion and goes on a quest to find out who Christ was and what was so special about him. It was nice to read about the miracles that were performed and to look at all that happened in a little different way. I also enjoyed learning about the Roman empire a little bit and what was happening at the same time as Christ's life. You never really think about all that together because you learn about them separately in school and church and the like.
Well I told you nothing new was happening here and sorry to bore you but hey I am sticking to my commitment at least for the month of January. Hopefully I can continue!
