MIA

Hey all. Sorry to have been Missing In Action for so long. I have been struggling with fatigue from anemia and writing taxes my energies. Anyhow, It has been hard getting through all of the ark building and instructions but I did take note that God instructed that Aaron wear symbols representing the twelve tribes across his chest close to his heart-perhaps to keep the people close to his mind and heart during service. God also had something representing the people on Aarons headpiece-perhaps to remind God of the people he would have to forgive over and over again.
I thought it great that God took such pride in external beauty that was simple yet elegant for the structure in a masculine form but chose beautifully ornamented designs for the priests. Maybe God showing some of his feminine flair?
That's about all I have the energy to write about today. As you can tell, I'm a little bit behind in my reading. I've also been reading books on gender communication, anger management, the Languages of Apologies and learning about them all as well as forgiveness. I'm a busy camper. heehee. til next post

It's great to hear from you again Inga :), but I will def pray that God takes away some of that fatigue you're experiencing :(

It was hard for me to get through those details too, annnnnd I technically didn't get through them, I skimmed the details and read another book on those days hehe

Good thoughts about God's designs :). I thought it was interesting that the details of the priest's garment mentioned in the OT (Exodus 28:15-21) is the same description of heaven that John describes in the NT (Revelations 21:15-21), neat!

Gosh so I'm guessing you like reading? ;) I read a great book on gender communication once called "You Just Don't Understand" by Deborah Tannen, interesting stuff!

I read that one and love it. I also read one that she did for the general population called That's not what I meant. I love this stuff cuz it is helping me clear up alot of misunderstandings and develop a discernment between sinful communication and just plain different communication. good stuff.
