Passover Lamb

"Your lamb shall be an unblemished male.... take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel.... it is the Lord's Passover" Genesis 12:5,7,11
"Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed" 1 Corinthians 5:7
"Knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold... but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ." 1 Peter 1:18-19
What a wonderfully clear picture of what Christ has done for us.
Lynn said I should only come to fetch the girls around 9am. When I arrived Rachel and Hannah were having a ride in the tractor (cutting some grass with Bob). Ruth had already had her turn. The first thing Ruth asked was where Dad was. I told her that he was at work but I could see that she was really sad. I asked her what was wrong and she just said she was tired. But she started crying and was not quite herself for a few minutes. She said she had missed us. The girls did have a lovely visit with them though. The only thing that happened was that Ruth woke around 3am. So perhaps she did loose a little sleep and being tiered was the biggest problem.
Hannah sooooo loves tractors and kept talking about Bob and his tractor the whole day. A real highlight for her.
It just shows you what wonderful neighbours they were. They loved having the girls and although they already have Christmas presents for the girls, Bob has said he wants to bring them to our place closer to Christmas. So the girls will enjoy another visit with them in the next couple of weeks.
I changed bottles with the salt crystals again today. Look how many more have formed from the table salt. The top dirtier section is what has formed above the water line.
The Rock salt continues to create crystals on the string above the water and on the pencil. It has also started forming up the side of the jar above the liquid, so time for a new bottle on this one too.
The rock salt had started forming square crystals at the bottom of the jar too. But we don't really want these growing too much, so we clean them out. We are enjoying seeing the growth on the pencil - so want to keep it going there.
We try not to even move the Epsom salt jar. It really is so completely different and growing very slowly.
This afternoon we headed over to the nurse for her to have a look at Brendon's finger. He cut it this morning and when he took the plaster off when he got home it was not looking great. So she cleaned it up and said she felt sure stitches where not needed. Just a good clean up a sterri strip and a bandage and to be kept dry for a couple of days. I have now ordered my own sterri strips for my first aid box. A normal plaster would just not keep it closed.
The girls having some fun with the bath crayons. I am not sure what exactly they were supposed to be - but painted faces are just fun and then all you need are loud scary noises. You can see how much fun Hannah thinks this is.
