Just recently I was talking with one of my church members and she said, “I know I am so blessed. I know I am.”
What she was talking about was the fact that she had raised four healthy children, who are each a credit to the world. She was surrounded by most of them at a family function and the sheer size and number of the group was humbling.

In 1501, a young, 25 year-old, Michelangelo began work on his 17 foot-tall sculpture of David. It was his belief that the sculptural image is found within the block of stone, much as the human soul is found within the physical body. I had read that when he was sculpting that magnificent work, Michelangelo made the statement that David was concealed within the marble all the time. The left cheek of his face was already revealed and all he, the sculptor, had to do was to chip away the stone until he exposed the rest of David’s body.
In the year 79 A.D. a mountain named Vesuvius, in southwestern Italy, literally blew its top, burying the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

It was a destination for wealthy Roman citizens who often vacationed there, being a city of considerable size with numerous attractions such as its own amphitheater, complete with gladiatorial school.
