When you live over a thousand miles from family it is hard to get together for a family reunion. It was a little easier when we lived closer. IE Right now Al & I live in MS, our daughter and her family live in the Dallas TX area and our son and his family live in the Houston TX area. My Mom and brother Sam live half way between our children. Sam has a son in AZ and our brother John Lives in TN. His children are hours apart in TX and hours away in TN. Al has a sister who lives close to our daughter in TX, a brother who lives in DE and a sister in Maine. Al and I both have relatives in FL. I donít think we have all made it at the same time but we try.
Lev 7:11-15 'This is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings which he shall offer to the LORD: 'If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer, with the sacrifice of thanksgiving, unleavened cakes mixed with oil, unleavened wafers anointed with oil, or cakes of blended flour mixed with oil. 'Besides the cakes, as his offering he shall offer leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offering. 'And from it he shall offer one cake from each offering as a heave offering to the LORD. It shall belong to the priest who sprinkles the blood of the peace offering. 'The flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day it is offered. He shall not leave any of it until morning.
I guess I cook too much. We always have leftovers.
2 Cor 9:10-11 Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.
I havenít scanned all the pictures in yet so this is a work in progress. You are invited to come back once a month or more often to see what we have added. God bless you one and all.
