Our Memorial Bible readings began yesterday- and I like to think of people all over the world, from every nation, tribe and tongue, reading about what happened on the day of Nisan 9 in the first century.
And today we are looking at Nisan 10. Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem riding on a donkey, as prophesied, and the way the crowds hail him as the Messiah, has angered the religious leaders. And on the 10th Jesus speaks about the death he is to die. He knows what is coming.
His faith in his Creator is outstanding - and is what we must try to emulate as much as our imperfect selves will allow us.
I am hoping that Captain Butterfly will arrive back soon with a load of shopping slung over his manly shoulders, as I need to get on with cooking the chicken for supper tomorrow, as Jacks is coming. Its an odd chicken and mushroom stir fry, in that you need to cook it the day before and the flavours develop in the fridge over the next 24 hours. I am also planning to bake a cake for dessert.
The Captain took all the butterfly memberships for posting. I had to wait for Butterfly Mark to deliver the new publications. And I also got a letter written to Kathryn and did quite a lot of emailing and facebooking.
