Today, when I got home from taking Angelica to speech and visiting with my mother, I was in the mood for cake. And I had some cake left over. Well one frosting covered by led to another and pretty soon I had eaten all that was left of the cake.
A later editor likely added this story since it didn’t appear in the earliest manuscripts. But it involved Jesus teaching in the Temple in Jerusalem when the Pharisees bring in a woman they caught in the act of adultery.
“Hey, Jesus, the Law says we should stone her, what do you say?”
Jesus writes in the dirt.
“Come on, Dude, should we kill her?”

This past weekend was filled with so much joy, celebration, and laugher. Thursday night my family from Peru came to stay with us. My mom’s brother was a missionary in Peru and eventually met, fell in love, and married a Peruvian woman. They have four children: Marcos (18), Lucas (16), Sara (14), and Jennifer (11). Jennifer was not able to come to the States as she is still in the long process of being adopted. They have been in the US for three weeks and came to Iowa to celebrate John and Maddy’s wedding reception.
