This is a sneak peak of what is coming....
Genesis 34The Message (MSG) 34 1-4 One day Dinah, the daughter Leah had given Jacob, went to visit some of the women in that country. Shechem, the son of Hamor the Hivite who was chieftain there, saw her and raped her.
When I begin reading about Dinah, I’m taking back to that era of time. The hustle and bustle of the city. Merchants stopping you in the streets to buy their goods. The business of everyday life going on. The smell of animals on the dirt roads. The roads paved with pebble stones and dirt. The twirling of dirt in the air creating small wind tornadoes. The strong aroma of kosher food lingering in the air. Dull stone walls adorned with colorful sashes for sale.
My mind goes into full descriptive mode, imaging the times of old until I read the part where she was raped. Immediately, I am stopped dead in my tracks.... JenJenMarie
