Deuteronomy 25:5

Deuteronomy 25:5

If brothers dwell together and one of them dies and has no son, the wife of the dead shall not be remarried outside of the family to a stranger; her husband's brother shall go into her, and take her as his wife, and perform the duty of a husband's brother to her.


We had a different Pastor today and I asked him about the poly thing and what he thought of it and he said that when the church started this was one of the scriptures they said they used to deal with the problems they had. Since there were so many single women with kids they decided that the fathers and boyfriends who ran away were brothers in Christ so the remaining men had a responsibility to take care of the women and their children.

So then I asked about why they let in people like me and the Pastor said that the church won't let in women who have good families and who are doing well. They open up for women who really need a strong refuge he said. I think that meant women who are messed up or have been hurt and that means me. That makes some sense.

I have not been on here in a while and some of that is because I don't have my own computer anymore because of a virus so I use Christies when she isn't here. The other part is that it is just cold down here in the basement so it is not a lot of fun to be here and write unless I turn on the heat and then I really don't want to be here that long so I usually talk myself out of using the puter.

The OB says my due date is May 22 but that anytime after May 1 would be okay. That would be okay with me! This is getting old. My back hurts, my boobs hurt, my feet hurt, my ankles look like sausages, and I don't think I want to see my maternity dresses for a long time.

It's also official that we are moving. Steve and Christie found a place in another state near one of the other church groups and we will be moving the week of Memorial Day when escrow closes. I will not be posting where we are moving but if you are on my IM I might tell you. It's not a big deal but I have a stalker I want to leave behind.

I'd write more but it is cold and rainy outside and colder down here so I am gone!

Happy Sunday everyone!

  1. sorry to hear about your computer. you should try Symantec that's the virus software me and my boyfriend use and it works good. also he has it set up so we are prompted for a user name and password anytime a program tries to make changes to any of the computers. I don't know how to set that up but maybe Christi will know or know where to look. I think its just a setting somewhere on the computer. that way if a virus tries to do something to another computer you get asked for a password. so you can deny it access. we found out something on yahoo's home page was trying to put stuff on our computer that way and stopped using it as a home page and reading news stories there. before that we couldn't figure out where the stuff was coming from.

  2. So you are set to deliver between May 1 and May 22 and yet there is a huge out of state move scheduled for the end of May? The timing seems very impractical considering your due date. How can you be so sure that you're going to have the babies before the move?

  3. Charmed, I had McAfee on my computer so maybe next time I will try Symantec, thanks!
    Anonymous, the OB says I will probably have them sooner than May 22 but May 22 is my official due date. Yeah moving at the same time is a big deal but then there are more people than just me and I will have a lot of help and then all of this is not about me so I have to go along too.

  4. Good luck with the move. It will be a challenge with a newborn, but it can be done.
