TIMELINES AND A THRIFT HAUL

Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? I had a very busy, but great week.  I spoke with our girls almost every single day; it always brings me pleasure, when I hear their voices.  Then on our way home, one evening, my husband pointed out the most beautiful moon, I had ever seen.  It was huge and seemed so close; I almost felt like I could touch it.  And then I went to the consignment and thrift store twice this week.  I absolutely love thrift stores, in fact I love shopping and thrifting satisfies that desire.

My fascination for Bible history began when I read Esther and then it just spiraled from there.  I’ve read Ezra, Nehemiah and now Ezekiel. Ezekiel and Daniel were exiled together, well actually Daniel was taken into exiled under Nebuchadnezzar, the Babylonian king, first and later, in the second wave, Ezekiel was taken. I wonder whether they met? I’m sure they heard about each other. Can you imagine the stories Ezekiel heard about Daniel? I wonder what he thought about Daniel?  The prophet Ezekiel came before Esther, but the time line between these people have totally captured my attention.  Did you know that Ezra and Nehemiah were contemporaries? Absolutely fascinating! Can you imagine their conversations when they met each other? Perhaps Ezra even invited Nehemiah over for dinner! The stories are endless!  They were really, just everyday people, weren’t they?Hebrews 4 12On Monday, we went to get cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory. They make the best cheesecake, it is wonderfully delicious. I had Red Velvet cheesecake, my absolute favorite, but since I’m trying to lose weight, I decided to take a look at the calories! A decision, I must admit I totally regret! Do you know a single slice, of this most heavenly cheesecake is almost 1500 calories.  Really! What! Why! Oh well, I ate it anyway.  I’m happy to report, it was absolutely exquisite.7869946E-2E85-4342-967A-456DAE51CFC5Here is what I picked up this week at the thrift store;fullsizeoutput_c80fullsizeoutput_c89fullsizeoutput_c8cfullsizeoutput_c8efullsizeoutput_c90fullsizeoutput_c92fullsizeoutput_c94fullsizeoutput_c96Did you notice a theme with the clothes I got?
