The man, walking down the road when the sun was high in the sky, suddenly saw shadows behind the rocks. He was taking a trip and was going to stop in the nearest town at sunset. As he passed the large rocks, some bandits jumped out at him. The rest was a blur. When they left him, he was injured, dirty, and left with no money or food. The man knew he couldn't make it to the town, so he hoped someone would pass by soon.
A priest was passing by. He was going home from visiting his brother. When he saw the man, he stopped. Ugh! he thought. I suppose bandits left him there. Hurried by thoughts of bandits, the priest crossed to the other side of the road.
A Levite was also passing through. He saw the man, but he hated getting dirty. The Levite passed on the other side, too.
The situation was getting worse and worse. The man was losing consciousness, and he wasn't able to yell for help. The sun was going down. Then, all of a sudden, he heard hoof beats on the road a few feet away. It was a Samaritan and his donkey. They got close, and when they saw the man, the Samaritan stopped his donkey and knelt down beside the man. "What's your name?" He asked, opening his pack and taking out oil and wine. "Stephan," came the reply. "Well, I'm Joel, and we'll have to hurry if we're going to make it to the town." said Joel, smiling. He finished bandaging the hurt man and then picked him up and put him on the donkey They hurried toward the town and arrived just as the sun was going down. Joel took Stephan to an inn and took care of him. The next day Joel told the innkeeper, "Take care of him. When I return, I will pay you back for any extra expenses you may have." Then he gave the innkeeper two silver coins.
It was a really fun dance! The theme was black and white. We got our outfits at Belk the day of the dance and our mom did our hair.
Also, when my dress came home, the security tag was still on the dress and we couldn't take it off. So, right before we went, we had to go back to Belk. The woman couldn't get it off either, so then I had to get another dress. :p
We have been very busy this week. Here is our schedule:
Monday was an art class from 9:00 to 11:30
Tuesday was the art class again.
Wednesday was the art class again (it was a three-day art class)
Thursday (today) We went to our piano lessons and Leah is babysitting.
Friday: We are going to our volunteer classes and a Daddy/Daughter Dance.
Unfortunately today we went to the store but we couldn't find anything for the dance. Oh, well.
Plus, my birthday is in April. At the art class, which was taught by Barry Stebbing, we learned a lot, and plus I got an art journal from my mother for my birthday. Mr. Stebbing is a great teacher, and he kept some art journals which were really cool.
