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!
