PICTURE: hoarfrost. As I was driving to church this morning, I had my camera ready. The hoarfrost (thanks dad for telling me what it is called) was absolutely stunning! I drove past this weeping willow, turned around, and went back to take a picture.
READING: Genesis 29-31. Jacob, Jacob, Jacob.... I swear he is just a pot-stirrer. First he has 2 women pining for him, he marries them both, sleeps with them AND their maidservants, and has a gogillion kids! Later he tricks Laban while tending flocks so that Jacob ends up with the stronger flock. And the ironic part of this....Jacob is part of the genealogy of Jesus!!!!
