One of my super cute friends from Biblical School made this for our potluck on Monday.  It is a watermelon, cut into the shape of a whale - and note "Jonah" in the mouth of the whale!  She had to promise her son she would not lose this treasured action figure.  Another friend made baklava shaped into scrolls!  I don't know why I didn't take a photo of that.  They were delicious, just like Ezekiel:  "And he said to me, 'Son of man, eat this scroll that I give you and fill you stomach with it.' Then I ate it; and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey." Ezekiel 3:3

I made a plain old strawberry rhubarb pie, but it was one of the better pies I have ever made, if I must say so myself.  I made the crust before I left for work in the morning, and then came home from work a little early so I could make the rest.

Today we have a day long retreat as our last day of Biblical School.  Graduation is on Friday of next week.  I am excited about the retreat, especially since no one would tell us ANYTHING about it, other than it is from 8:30 to 3:15 and they will serve us lunch - oh, and Bring Your Bibles.   I just pray we don't have a comprehensive exam, because if I have to remember things I learned in the first year - now four years ago - I am afraid I might be in trouble.  And if I have to revisit Isaiah, the book that caused me the worst crisis in faith I have ever had, I will not be happy.

Speculating about what it might be is not a productive activity, so I think I shall hop into the bathtub and get ready for my day.

I hope you all have a beautiful day, and may God bless you.


  1. Cute whale! My mom used to make rhubarb pie, which I like, and then one day I had a strawberry rhubarb and that was wonderful. Yours looks tasty too. I hope you are having fun.

  2. Mmmmmmm....that pie looks beautiful and VERY yummy!!

  3. Water melon, baklava and strawberry and rhubarb ... my favorites. I'm so hungry now.

    We can't get baklava easily in the UK.

    Best wishes on the Retreat.

    God bless.

  4. Tasty! And clever ,good luck with the retreat.

  5. Delicious stuff....Mmmm.

    May I ask why Isaiah caused a crises of faith? Just curious.

  6. I couldn't understand how Isaiah could write about Jesus. It made me doubt the whole Bible. It was awful.

    A friend, in one sentence, cleared it up for me. I should write about it here.

    A friend at Biblical School made me share the story today and told me it always gives her goose flesh.

  7. I would be curious to see that sentence. Yes, do write about it. I will read it. ;)
