What can go wrong?
Oh, how thing can change!
I remember one of my teachers said that the phrase "Forty days and forty nights" is an idiomatic phrase that means "a long, long time." Either way, Moses was gone long enough that the kids got themselves into trouble.

Sketchbook: Of local interest
That somehow reminded me of how fast offerings in the Church are used locally. If a ward or branch has more than they need, it goes to the stake or district. Local needs are addressed first. And I think that's kind of cool.

Tantalizing the tastebuds
That got me to thinking about some of the interesting meals I had as a missionary. In particular, the ones we made for ourselves. Sometimes they were the most frightening of all!
All three of these made it to our table at one time or another — and I don't think Paul Hollywood would approve of any of them!
What are some of the strange dishes you made as a missionary?

Easter Week: The Resurrection
"Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou hast borne him hence, tell me where thou has laid him, and I will take him away.
"Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
"Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."

"And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein man never before was laid.
"And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on."

Easter Week: The Crucifixion
"And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
"And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into they hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost."

Easter Week: Gethsemane
"And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt."

Easter Week: Jesus Teaches His Disciples
"For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me doing; I was a stranger, and ye took me in;
"Naked, and ye clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
"Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
"When was we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
"And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

It’s in the water
Food was probably one of the last things on the minds of the Children of Israel as they passed through the Red Sea. But water was one of the first things they wanted once they got to the other side!
On a side note, at my drawing table I keep a stash of various coins from around the world. Sometimes I use them for reference, sometimes I use them to help me draw circles.
I grabbed a coin that I felt would be the right size for the wagon wheel. I placed it on the paper, grabbed my pencil — and then I laughed when I saw what it was: a one pound coin from Egypt!

Sketchbook: Following the prophet
Now that General Conference is over, it's time to start reviewing the messages. I've compiled my notes into one downloadable PDF to assist in that review.
Which talks were most meaningful to you?
*Internet research indicates it was Alex Barcello who lit it up during a BYU game to turn the momentum. Go Cougs!

Then I thought about making the characters general authorities. That might have been funny, but then again it might just look like two older gentlemen putting on suits. And I don't think I'm brave enough to start drawing caricatures of Elder Bednar or Elder Gong.
That brings us here. I'll leave it to your interpretation on whether he's changing out of play clothes to watch a session, or if he's getting ready for action and adventure!
