My Wife is Amazing...

This past Wednesday was my 30th birthday. (I can't believe I'm the same age Jesus was when he began his ministry!). So Kim, my beautiful wife, gave me the most incredible birthday present.

This is what she gave me...
THE TALMUD!!!
Not just any version of the Talmud--she gave me the Soncino Talmud, complete with the Hebrew and English on either page!!!
WHOA!!!
She apparently sought Brant's counsel on this one. How cool is that?--she researched versions of the Talmud to make sure she got the top-of-the-line version!
What a wife!
This means the world to me!
WOW!!! I'm bouncing off the walls tonight. Can you tell?
THANK YOU KIM--YOU'RE THE BEST!
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

Hey Josh!

Yes, Kim does have one sister--and one brother-in-law.

I love you two, God has (through you two), done so much for me and I must thank you both.

Your brother in Christ,
Andrew James K. (now a lay Catholic convert from Coptic Orthodoxy)

Wow. That is so cool.

I just keeping repeating to myself: Remember the 10th Commandment! Remember the 10th Commandment!

You crazy theology scholars... ;p

It reminds me of when my husband bought me Fr. Virtue's dissertation on the foundation of the moral life in the breastfeeding/early infant-mother relationship.

God is good!

Enjoy your Talmud!
