We are in the midst of a weir weather pattern. Yesterday, depending on who is talking, we hit a high of around 71°! This coming Friday, snow, yes SNOW is predicted. Tonight's low is predicted to be around 26°. Everyone around who has sinus problems is having them, everyone with arthritis is feeling the joints to be barometers. I am glad we are above the zero mark, very, having been through that many times, and had to work and drive in those conditions. But it's weird.
In just a few days, Lord willing, we will leave February behind and enter into the months with short names. I'd much rather see a calendar reading "MAY", than one reading, say, "JANUARY". And, yes, your mileage may vary.
Wife seems to be improving, albeit in fits and starts and very slowly. Today, the breathing was better, but the ulcerative colitis returned with a vengeance. Not fun, not at all. She was able to stand up for a little while, even tried to cook, which she actually enjoys (and is VERY good). She slept a lot, which is good for her, lets her recover and give the body time to do its thing.
With her semi passed out in the living room, and me frankly being a bit under the weather myself, not a lot got done around here. I don't dare to leave her alone for long, a run to the local grocery being about the limit, so some errands are being deferred. We shall see what the coming week holds. She did have the doctor send some prescription refill authorizations to the pharmacy, so chances are I'll be making the journey this afternoon or Monday.
The passage in the Old Testament is chapters 14 and 15 of Numbers.
Some warnings here, ones that remain valid today. Having observed what happened there, we are left without excuse when we do likewise.
Our day's walk with Jesus takes us to verses 1-32 in chapter 6 in the Gospel of Mark.
Yes, Jesus encountered opposition. You expect the world will treat us any differently?
