Memorization ~ John 1:39-42

39 He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour).
40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus.
Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, “You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas” (which is translated, A Stone).

In health and in sickness

The two youngest have had some sort of stomach/GI virus. DS#3 woke DH & I up at 4:30 one morning with some emesis, later dry heaves, and then later that day had a fever. He slept a lot for almost 2 days and then slowly recovered. Then DD had the same a couple of days later. So the washer and dryer got some extra work as did Mom and Dad. All seem to be well now. DS #2 had his 6th birthday last week; he opened his presents but we didn't have cake for a couple of days since that is when DS#3 was sick.

Any way, I did do some layouts. This first one is from just over 1 year ago. DH took this photo of three of our blessings with myself. I used the faux lomo effect tutorial by Anita Stergiou once again (it is so much fun to play with).

Memorization ~ John 1:35-38

I'm a bit behind on posting our memory work -- and a bit behind on having this down perfect.

Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!”
37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, “What do you seek?”
They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), “where are You staying?”

Memorization ~ John 1:32-34

32 And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.”

This is a photo of DS#3. He was lying down on the carpet and looking up at me. I used the Lomo photo effect tutorial by Anita Stergiou on the photo then made it sepia tone. I did this layout as a challenge from 3 Scrapateers for the DigiScrappers Anonymous Chat/Crop for 2/25/06.

Memorization John 1:29-31

29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ 31 I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.”
