What a wonderful day. It is chilly and Tuesday. No school or rush this morning. WAIT--> I just noticed I have no idea where my girls are. My house is under 1500 sq ft. You would think I could see them at all times in this place.....okay one going potty and the other one getting a summer dress on. "SAIGE!! did you pull that down from your closet"?? "No I just howed it and walked away and it fowowed me". I think 3 is my favorite age right now.
Jacob sends gifts to Esau
Genesis 32:9-12 I love Jacob talking to God, he praises Him,humbles himself then kind of reminds God of what he was promised.
Jacob wrestles with God
Genesis 32:24 Am I correct to think that God came to earth as the person who wrestles with Jacob? And if so in vs 25 it says "the man say that he would not win.." If the man is God then He could have won,correct, He is God. I am assuming that I am going to be told that God lost on purpose. That being said, why did it say The mans saw he was going to lose which appears to be a surprise to him,right?????
Jacob and Esau make peace
Revenge against Shechem
Rape is horrible not matter who it happens to,but wow are we lucky to be here in these times and in this country where there is so many victim avocates and resources to help. I have seen documentary's about other countrys where woman can be killed for being raped in todays times. I couldn't imagine what Dinah went through back then. She was probably not so much the victim but the actual rape was a disgrace to the family.
Genesis 24:14 Okay so don't you think we should have this for punishment today. Circumcising the men. If they are circumcised already they can just be ...eh...more so. (Sorry :) ) Not so much destroying there town and taking everything including the woman and children though.
Jacob returns to Bethel
The Death of Rachel
In Genesis 35:18 It says "The baby's father called him Benjamin" is that just this translation? Wasn't the father Jacob? Why didn't they say "Jacob named him Benjamin" They normally refer to the person by name. This seemed odd to me?
~Have a wonderful day~
