Dead Sea Scrolls, and more

On Saturday I went with 24 people on a bus to the Milwaukee Public Museum to see the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit. I found it very interesting. There was just so much to take in in the time we had. I should have bought a book, to help in the memory of what I saw.
There was a bad part and that was I had a cold, and was not feeling the best, and I was soon very tired. I was introduced now to the museum and I can go back when I am feeling better.
Sunday I was still feeling bad, but I had to teach so the plan was to go home to bed after church. One of the ladies from my bible study group invited me to go with her to her son's church, the one on the end of my block, to eat. The youth prepare a meal once a month to raise money for a mission trip. Her daughter- in -law helped in the preparation of the meat sauce for the pasta. My friends granddaughter was not able to come. After the meal, my friend gave me a tour of the church. A friend of hers, and a member of the church is an artist, had a mural in the church, and she shared it with me. My friend asked if I had time to go for a ride. We went down to the park. In the park there is a museum which has a collection of paperweights. We went in and I learned about glass making. We called it a day then. I came home feeling much better.

I almost went to that paperweight museum! Oh well...

I bet that Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit was something else! I don't suppose you were allowed to take pictures...

I'm sorry to hear you've had a cold - but I'm glad you're out and about and carrying on! I pray for you every single day - and the family! Since today is Thursday I hope you are feeling MUCH better by now.

I agreed tonight to teach my first adult Sunday school class. I'm nervous - but God will get me through. It's a 6 week course starting May 9th! Now you know how to pray for me too! :)

I'm sorry you were feeling unwell. You can always purchase a Dead Sea Scrolls book through the museum to help you remember your visit.
I'm glad that special time with a friend on Sunday afternoon helped you to feel better.
And as the mom of 3 kids going on a mission trip this summer, thank you for supporting them by going to the luncheon!
