Genesis 24:9

And the servant put his hand under the athigh of Abraham his master, and sware to him concerning that matter.

I wonder what the significance of that gesture was. Obviously it had something to do with making a promise to Abraham. But what exactly did putting a hand under his thigh really mean to them and where did that gesture come from?


I’m grateful for my parents who are working to find a place for me as well as themselves to stay in Utah when we all meet there to have a family gathering one last time before my brother-in-law passes.

Random Thoughts

I was able to get a lot accomplished today around all the appointments and laundry and everything else that had to be done. It’s good to be able to make the time to get everything accomplished.
