Sarah married another man later in life, and Joseph had to walk the Trail of Tears with two of the children he and Sarah shared. The two children were darker complected and Sarah and Joseph thought it would be too difficult for them to be considered White. Joseph died in Oklahoma, and Sarah stayed in Virginia.

This image was suppose to be Mary Magdalene she is talking to a skull in a cave. Many cultures had relationships with the dead. We still do today as we visit graves, and talk to our ancestors. The relationship they had included making a mask, and even decorating a skull. Which leads me to think that at one time someone decided to allow the skull of a family member to be interred, but make a skull out of rock.
What is it about skulls that has made such an impact on society today. I must admit I love skulls. I have dreamed of having a skull in my library since I was a little girl. Although I thought about having a real skull for a hot second...then I thought about it the next second...that belongs to someone else. I am not sure how this image came to me. I really wanted a crystal skull! Did I see it somewhere in the Encyclopedia in our house? I must have seen it somewhere.
One day I was sharing this image with my husband. He said it was creepy. I kept justifying to him..."it is a crystal skull, not a real one." He said "It is still creep." Years have passed since I told him that I wanted a crystal skull. I do have one, and so do each of my children. I have a life size crystal skull, my son has a green one, and my daughter has a rose quartz. I want a few more. There are artist creating these with great skill.
The next time you are in an antique store go for the whole book instead of just an image. It is a much better deal!

What have I learned on my Lenten journey. Well, this year I gave up luxury goods, and chocolate. I cut my sugar consumption by half. Although, I did not buy luxury gifts for myself. I did go a little overboard on buying luxury items for others.
I feel good about my accomplishments, and I want to continue on my path to transform myself. Any transformations for you?

There are some other family pages in the Bible, and if there is an interest I will share them. For now, here are some of the reasons why I bought this one in the first place...
If you happen to know Maxon families from Blackstone, Mass this may be their family.

Tomorrow I will have to share a family Bible that I have had for several years. I will have to share it with all my twitter friends so maybe someone can identify the family.

The wine we tasted was good too, so overall I was pleased. I am sure that there are some great events that they have to offer too. Could you imagine having your Prom there? WOW!
