It's Monday! And i'm a mealworm farmer!
Here they are! My actual mealworms, possibly a bit larger than actual size, depending on your resolution.
I picked up my mealworm farm starter kit this morning, kept the little guys (and girls) with me at my desk all day (don't tell my co-workers), and even took them with me to Bible study, where i used them for my own little show and tell. Finally, i'm home, and so are they.
I was a little concerned that handling these guys would kind of creep me out, but it turns out, they're not that creepy.
Anyway, it's late. I REALLY need to go to bed. But i will leave you with this.
A loose paraphrase of Luke 9:51ish through 54ish.
Recently, the disciples had been given power by Jesus to heal sick people and to rid them of demons, and they had been out practicing, per Jesus' instructions. But now they're back together, and Jesus has decided to go on a journey, and the disciples are with him. While on the journey, Jesus is hoping to get some overnight lodging in a town along the way, but the people in the town, said, "nope." They're not happy about this particular journey Jesus is taking, and they don't want to help. Well, the disciples, they're just barely baptized in this new power Jesus has given them, and they offer to "call down fire from heaven" buah ah ah, and consume these people who would turn Jesus away. But Jesus is UNhappy with the disciples about this proposal. "You do not know what spirit you are of," He says. [That is not why I came.] "[I] did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them."
Jesus also said, in another place, that to know Him is to know the Father. God is not looking to destroy you for your mistakes, for your rejection of Him, or for anything else. He volunteered to sacrifice Himself, His Son, so that you, no matter who you are, your life could be saved.
