Building And Furnishing The Tabernacle

Exodus 31:2-5

2 See, I have called by name aBezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:

3 And I have filled him with the aspirit of God, in bwisdom, and in understanding, and in cknowledge, and in all manner of dworkmanship,

4 To devise acunning works, to work in bgold, and in silver, and in brass,

5 And in acutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.


The Lord called several men to build and furnish the tabernacle as He had revealed to Moses.  These men were highly gifted and created the tabernacle beautifully. We can imagine how they felt on receiving such a calling.


I am grateful for the new friends I have made since moving here who are willing to help me out.

Random Thoughts

Cindee told me she will not be able to take me to my next treatment today because she doesn\’t have a sub for seminary this time.  But a new friend Abrie Mikkelson who helped me with cleaning when I first moved in said she can. My treatment is next Monday, so she will take me then.

Also Brother Gibbons who\’s been helping with my light in the kitchen came over with the Elders\’ Quorum President to install the battery operated new one, so now I have a light in the kitchen.  He also told me he\’s now my ministering brother and he\’s willing to help me with anything, just to give him a call.

I\’m so grateful for everyone in my new ward and all their willingness to help me with so many things.

We\’ve had some things clarified with my mom. It turns out what they thought was result from a stroke was a tumor and so she has two tumors, one on each side of her brain and they are cancerous. Mother has decided she wants surgery and they need a biopsy. So she\’s having surgery tomorrow to remove at least one of the tumors and get a biopsy so they can determine more. It\’s not clear what the result will be and how she will be affected. They say the tumor on the right side of her brain and the surgery will probably affect movement on the right side of her body. Less clear about the one on the left. And they didn\’t clarify what the cognitive effects are from or why they vary. The doctor didn\’t stay around to answer all of our questions so we will have to wait for more answers and see what the result is from surgery.

I\’m not sure what the right answer is, but this feels like a hurried decision to me. I hope it doesn\’t affect her quality of life too much and gives more answers and a chance for more time to consider treatment options.
