I've always wondered about myrrh. Not only is my middle name, Marie, derived from this word, the spice is something I've never seen--until now.
My new Christian blogger friend, Renee, who lives in France (is the Lord giving me two reasons to travel to Europe?) and is a pastor's wife with a gift for cross-stitching scenes from the Bible, has posted an answer to my questions about myrrh.
In case the link doesn't work, try Renee's blog at www.bibleenbroderie.com. No blogspot, no wordpress, just dot com. Don't let it fool ya! You will see French first. Scroll down till you get to the English words in red. You'll see a picture of myrrh first, which is nothing like what I pictured.
Thanks, Renee, for the bit of education you've given me today!
