PICTURE: skyping with Karissa! My best friend and her hubby are missionaries in northern Africa. Needless to say, I don't get to see her too often. So we try to skype when our schedules allow it and also keep in touch via email. This was my screen today as we were talking. LOVE YOU CHEEZ!
READING: Genesis 47-50. I finished Genesis today. 1 book down, 65 to go! I love how Joseph's story ended. In Genesis 50:19-21 it says, "But Joseph said to them, 'Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.' And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them." Joseph could easily have treated his brothers like crap for what they did to him. Instead, he chose not to take revenge. I think that is a good lesson to learn.
