Rest Days

Rest Days

My wife left me…  literally she is gone.  This leaves an empty place in not only my life but my schedule.  Okay seriously she only left me for the weekend, but by the time she left the drive way I already had started missing her (cue the sad romantic music).  I mean honestly she is so freaking amazing and the sexiest woman on the planet who wouldn’t miss her?!  I realized something a few hours ago and that is I have to do something that I haven’t done in well over a year….  Yes I have to take my day of rest without my wife Danielle.  What in the hell am I suppose to do?  Typically when we take rest day together there is no resting… haha yes I am uber mature.  Now I do have to clarify so I do not come across as a sex crazed male, but who am I suppose to talk to, play cards with or just relax with?  She is my soul mate and the best friend any one could ask for.

The people also complained that dying in Egypt, or dying out in the wilderness they had been living in, would be an easier fate than dying at the hands of the sword of someone from the “promised land”. The people argued that they’d actually be safer returning to Egypt, and decided to appoint a new leader. God responds with a punishment of a forty-year stay in the wilderness, plenty of time for the present generation to die out completely. God states that each of the forty years spent wandering the desert will be punishment for each of the forty days the spies had spent searching Canaan and that they are to remember this as they all slowly die off in the desert. He then kills off the other ten spies with a deadly plague because he felt they were responsible for scaring the people of Israel into rebelling in the first place using slander and lies. God saves Caleb and Joshua for He feels that they remained faithful and justly will be spared the punishment. The old generation will die, and God will start over with a new people. Sin and rebellion produces death; but out of death, God makes a new thing. “If the Lord is pleased with us, then He will...
