Spiral ham, green beans, and funeral potatoes.

Watermelon Lemonade. I wanted to make a kid-friendly drink that would represent Jesus Christ's sacrifice.

If you decide to make this drink. It does taste good-which surprised me-but the ingredients separate fast. So just know to stir it before each sip.

Did you see Jesus on the Cover of Forbes Magazine?

With all the events in the news and media, it makes me curious; how would Jesus be portrayed if he were living today? With the advertisements, the weekly hot sales and the latest trends; would Jesus be on the cover of Forbes or on People’s list of Sexiest Man Alive?

Although curiosity is exciting, I want to be interested, and the interesting thing is: Jesus is alive! When we have Him in our hearts everyday; all these things mentioned above don’t matter. Why? Because Jesus is the latest trend, he is the sexiest man alive, and the richest man. It is where our priorities are within these categories’ and how we interpret their definitions.

Richard Evan’s Quote Book

After breakfast I decided to pull the book, Richard Evan’s Quote Book off my shelf. Remarkably, the ones read seemed to be what was needed to start my day.

“I have taken my best pains not to laugh at the actions of mankind, not to groan over them, not to be angry with them, but to understand them.” -Baurch Spinoza

“Oh, the comfort the inexpressible comfort, of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts, nor measure words-but pouring them all right out-just as they are – chaff and grain together-certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them-keep what is worth keeping-and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.” -Dinah Maria Mulock

“Years ago I preferred clever people. There was a joy in beholding…a mind…bearing thoughts quickly translated into words, or ideas expressed in a new way. I find now that my taste has changed. Verbal fireworks often bore me. They seem motivated by self-assertion and self-display. I now prefer another type of person; one who is considerate, understanding of others, careful not to break down another person’s self-respect…My preferred person today is one who is always aware of the needs of others, or their pain and fear and unhappiness, and their search for self-respect…I once liked clever people. Now I like good people.” -Solomon Bennett Freehof

Herod’s Temple

Unorthodox Faith

During the message today, I mentioned a model of Herod’s temple that was built by a British pensioner. The man’s name is Alex Garrard, and he spent the last thirty years constructing his model – which stretches 20 feet long and 12 feet wide. Sadly, Mr. Garrard passed away in 2010, and the model is no longer displayed for the public.

You can read the Telegraph article about Garrard and his hobby. I have to say that while the Holyland Model is pretty cool (I saw it in 1997), the scale of Garrard’s model makes it pale in comparison. The Holyland Model is 1:50 scale, and Garrard’s is 1:100, but Garrard’s is much more focused on the temple complex itself.

Here are some pictures of Garrard’s amazing model. They help us get a grasp of the massive complex begun by Herod the Great in 19BCE and completed in 62CE. The…
