Elegant armour

I found this lying around in my church.

I was amused to see the Farsi for 'belt' is very like cummerbund.

26 dead wasps

I picked up all of these while dusting the church yesterday.

God calls Samuel

And here's the PowerPoint!

I tried to put it in a bit of context, so I started with Eli's rebellious sons, and ended up with Samuel becoming a prophet to all Israel (which also seemed a more positive ending than 'God says you're in big trouble'!)

Eli & his sons
Samuel works for God
A man of God rebukes Eli
God calls Samuel
Samuel runs to Eli
Speak, for your servant is listening
Samuel gives Eli God's message
Samuel becomes a prophet to all Israel

Samuel's hair

Just finished my second Samuel PowerPoint (God calls Samuel). Thought you might like to see the character development I did for the first PowerPoint.

I don't usually try out so many ideas for a character, but it's really hard to draw a young boy with long hair and not have him looking like a girl! I ended up with the two top right versions (for Sam at different ages).

The only problem about choosing to draw dreadlocks is that, if uncut, they never stop growing - that will be interesting when I draw old Samuel!

Made to last

The church hoover died this afternoon. So I borrowed my parents' hoover.
Over 40 years old and still going strong!
