Playing Catch Up

I took this photo at a stop on the road to KC.

So...I've been a little busy the last couple of days.  I've read literally thousands of pages of text for Jan. term classes and wrote two papers. Then I got all packed up for three weeks in Kansas City where I'll be taking these classes.  Hubs was amazing in helping me get ready for my trip.  Hmm...should I interpret that as being excited anxiety to get be out of the house for three weeks?  Nah!  After a very difficult session of my saying goodbye to my boys (Ham would not let go) I left and headed out for my five hour drive.

The roads on my drive couldn't have been nicer.  Traffic mild, snow only on the sides, no ice in sight and limited highway patrol (not that I speed, uh-hum, but I get palpitations when I see.)  I made it into KC last night and settled into my hotel.  I unpacked, relaxed and watched "HB-O you did not just show that on television."  Never saw Big Love before...interesting...kind of liked it.

This week I'm taking Topics in Women, Church and Society.  So far I LOVE it.  Classmates are great, professor fantastic.  What more could you ask for?  Oh, I know, a subject I love...wait, got that.  Starting next week I'll be taking Women in the New Testament.  Looking forward to that one too.  In fact, as I was preparing for my paper and the class, it got me thinking about all the women in the Bible we're unfamiliar with and how talking about it on my blog could be fun.  What do you think?  If I started dialogues about various women, would you take a look at them with me?

It is always so precious when we take time to really get into the word of God.

I signed up for the Precepts classes this year and we are dealing with Isaiah for the first 6 months of the year. I love this Prophetic book and I can't wait for the Lord to show me all the little nuggets I have previously missed.

What a beautiful photo. I just love the colors in it. I also think it would be very interesting to read your thoughts and ideas about "various women".

That sounds interesting- I'd love to read your thoughts about that!

Thanks ladies for your feedback! I love getting into the Bible and really discovering voices I haven't heard before or heard much from.

Some people think I'm crazy, but I really enjoy reading Jeremiah.

pretty sure he was a man ;)

i've tended to shy away from studying women in the bible before because i didn't think their stories were as interesting or exciting. however, i studied esther and ruth for a paper last semester and was blown away once i really "got into" the text. one of the books i found really helpful was "words of delight" by leland ryken.

i say go for it!

p.s. kewl blog.
