A review of my day and thoughts

I had some great Bible study this morning.  I have Torah Club 1 that I just started.  I was reading from last week's Torah portion where Jesus healed on the Sabbath.  This led to a more in-depth study of Jesus from John 1 and Genesis 1.  Deep stuff.  Jesus=Torah=God=with God.  How can someone be God and be with God?  Jesus healed on the Sabbath and continues to work on the Sabbath because the Father is working "even now".  I have so much more I need to understand!

I didn't want to quit, but eventually felt the need to go help Tim take our ever-expanding pile of garbage and recycling to the dump.  At the dump I saw a bunch of eagles perched in nearby trees. 

When I got home I put away our Christmas and Hannukah stuff away while listening to some speakers on tape/dvd.  As I hear the story of where antisemitism started, and as I learn about the roots of Christianity and how it became a separate religion, I am turned off from what Christianity has become.  I did Christmas this year, because I am a gentile believer and have many good memories of it.  However, the more I become aware of how Christianity became what it is today, the more I am not sure of what I should do about things like Christmas.

Then I changed around the living room furniture.
