He did it again today but I managed not to scream. I just lay back while he got to work and took the total of expelled demons to seven, a number which seemed to satisfy him. I did feel better afterwards but my morning sickness goes away of its own accord each day anyway. I remember Mary, Jesus’ mother, saying hers went on all day when she was having him, poor thing.
Anyway, he’s full of enthusiasm for touring again and couldn’t wait to get back out there with a dozen or so men and the two travelling Marys, and I’m really pleased for him. They expect to be settled in Tekoa before sunset, ready to preach on the Sabbath. He’s trying to stay one step ahead of the Pharisees, but they’re a smart bunch and they’ll soon catch up with him.
