“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.
Isaiah 1:18

Ugh I love my coworkers so much.

Tonight I stuffed my face with good food, my mind with good memories, and my heart with more love for my coworkers. I am outrageously blessed.

Sharing a binding
This is a clever book from the 18th century, printed in Oxford in 1756. It presents both the Old and New Testament, although the books are not bound together the regular way, behind one another. Instead, the binder opted to place them next to each other. This very rare binding technique is part of a family that includes the dos-à-dos (or “back to back”) binding, which I blogged about before (here). Having the two testaments bound this way allowed the reader to consult passages from both books at the same time. Indeed, the empty pages in the front and back are filled with notes, including in Greek and Hebrew. It appears this clever binding had a reader to match.

Dem legs doe.

After our bible study tonight, Paul was getting ready to leave and I did my usual thing where I didn’t even budge while sitting on the couch. I’m not going to act like I’m about to leave when my intention is to stay as late as possible. So he left and then it was just me, Daniel, and Benjamin. Daniel stuck around for about 15 minutes but then Benjamin and I started picking on each other like we usually do and then a rare quiet moment happened and Daniel threw up his hands and said something along the lines of “I can’t stand the sexual tension between you two” and went to his room. (The only words I for sure heard were “sexual tension” because he said them louder and with emphasis.) To which I uttered words, any words I could think of to change the topic as soon as possible. I think I came up with “Anna Beth” because I had been trying to find a text about her. Yeah. Smooth, Kaylen. Benjamin promptly went to the bathroom. And that was that. When he came out we talked for an hour or so as if nothing had been said.

Mission Keep-Pretending-There’s-Nothing-Between-Us is getting harder and harder to keep topic secret.
