5 Days of Fun

This is what your brain looks like after taking a mini-mester over the book of Jeremiah. I learned so much in five days it made me ill. Strangely enough, it was fairly interesting and I still get to exhibit that knowledge on a fifteen page monograph... whatever that is. If you've never read Jeremiah, I would definitely recommend it. Pay attention, because the nation of Judah did not and we all know what happened to them.

My favorite part was the object lessons - potter and the clay, etc. If I were to pick a favorite passage, it would come from 9:23-24.

23 This is what the LORD says:
"Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom
or the strong man boast of his strength
or the rich man boast of his riches,

24 but let him who boasts boast about this:
that he understands and knows me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,"
declares the LORD.

Unfortunately, I have another one of these that lasts for two weeks starting next Monday. Poor Amy... The good news - the Cowboys might be the NFC East Champions by that time. Surely Will and I get a chance to celebrate a few touchdowns together tomorrow.
