I have been sick. I'm ready to stand up and yell and be happy again! Except then I will be in a paroxysm of coughing. So, the yelling in my typing is because I have the actual energy of a gnat.

On our journey towards John and Jesus' birth! Here is the proclamation that Zechariah and Elisabeth are going to have a child and name him John.
