Have you read a great book lately?
2020 has still been crazy, we all know. Just remember that God was not caught off guard. I finished working at the Mississippi Legislature for a while. They actually had to take a break again due to over 40 members testing positive, so keep them in your prayers.
The good news is I traveled (was super careful) and spent a bit of time with my family. Here are a few pics of me and my sisters, my daughter and my grand-dog, and the beach with full moon.
It was so nice to see them again!
I always finished proofing The Art of Rivers Audio edition, and I have a few free codes. Reply to this post, and I will send you one, until I run out.
More book news! I'm almost finished with the first draft of my new novel!! Until then, my sweet author friends have some great books!
Misty Beller's novel Freedom in the Mountain Wind is on sale for only 99 cents for the next few days!
Jennifer Rodewald has a new book In Spite of Ourselves on preorder for 99 cents. It releases on the 28th!
Check them out!! And let me know if you have a prayer request.
Blessings in Him,
Hi friends! Sorry I've been out of touch. I finished work at the Mississippi Capitol for a while, then I went to visit family. I'm back on track with my little Bible study.
Thoughts on Rebekah
Their love story starts in Genesis 24
Willing to dip water for a stranger and his camels, Rebekah’s journey started out so well. She wouldn’t even allow her tricky brother Laban keep her from leaving the next day with Abraham’s servant to marry a man she’d never met. (She accepted a nose ring too. Apparently, those things have been around a long time.) The Bible says Rebekah comforted Isaac over the death of his mother Sarah. Such a beautiful story of love.
But then life’s problems set in. Famine again. Isaac asked Rebekah to pretend to be his sister, just as his father had, when they traveled. Infertility struggle came for this couple also--for twenty years. At least Rebekah didn’t make Sarah’s mistake of using a surrogate. Isaac prayed for Rebekah, and she finally conceived. But the children were warring twins even in her womb. They would continue to battle for most of their lives.
Okay, my kids have had their share of sibling rivalry, but it’s nothing compared to these two. Part of the problem seems to be that Isaac and Rebekah played favorites, each preferring one twin over the other.
Rebekah didn’t trust God or Isaac to put Jacob in the place of leadership, so she planned a huge deception on her dying husband. Sadly, because of her deception, she had to send Jacob off, and she likely never got to see him again before her death.
Rebekah's story is another reminder for me to trust God, be honest with my husband, and be fair with my family.
