Braille, Numbers, Aaron

I have been reading up on the registration information for the braille transcription course. I am kind of intimidated and also very excited. It sounds like they really need transcriptionists and so it would be great to help out! Also, as a part of the course, I would hand in a 35-page transcription of my choice. Just thinking about that makes me excited. I want to be the first person to transcribe the Dune series into braille!

In church tonight we studied I Corinthians 10:1-13. It was a warning and an encouragement based on the example of the Israelites throughout Exodus and Numbers. The key points were: fix your thoughts on things above, rely on God, and be ever thankful. In our study, we read the scene with the High Priest Phinehas and one with Moses and Aaron that I had forgotten. For some reason this latter passage really struck me:

"Then Moses said to Aaron, 'Take your censer and put incense in it, along with fire from the altar, and hurry to the assembly to make atonement for them; for wrath has gone out from the LORD. The plague has begun.'
So Aaron did as Moses said, and ran into the midst of the assembly. The plague had already started among the people, but Aaron offered the incense and made atonement for them. He stood between the living and the dead, and the plague stopped." Numbers 16:46-48

"The light of life"
He stood between the living and the dead
That is an incredible image.

I miss the old Testament! Coming back to it is like tasting sweet honey or fine wine.
