Jackson Reverdy Orrell – born 20 Dec 2006

It is with a great deal of pleasure and pride that I announce that my grandson ….

Jackson Reverdy Orrell was born at 11:08 PM, 20 December 2006, at York County General Hospital, York County, Pennsylvania.

Sara is doing well after the c-section, and is looking forward to being home by Christmas Eve.

I’m sorry that I don’t have the weight or any more information at this time.

We were only able to see him for a minute, before he was even weighed or measured. The nurse said he looks very healthy and in good shape.

While I was able to get a quick photo on my cell phone, I don’t know how to get the jpg off and posted.

We will be going back up on Christmas Day when we’ll get some photos.

The proud daddy is also doing well.

The Reverdy name now continues in our family in six straight generations.

1. Reverdy Benson Stewart, Confederate soldier, uncle of
2. Reverdy Lewin Orrell, Sr.
3. Reverdy Lewin Orrell, Jr.
4. Reverdy Lewin Orrell, III

More Office Photos

Below is a photo of a book case which sits on one part of my desk. I’ve cropped everything out to just show 20 of my Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bibles. Currently, I have 21 volumes including the entire New Testament (14 volumes, including the subject and index volume).

Thus far, I only have the first 7 volumes of the Old Testament which covers the first five books.

In time, and as money permits, I work on collecting the entire series.

The entire bible is not yet completed. I still need the following:
Joshua
Judges-Ruth
1 Samuel
2 Samuel
1 Kings
2 Kings
1 Chronicles
2 Chronicles
Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther
Isaiah 1 (Chapters 1-35)
Isaiah 2 (Chapters 36-66) NEW!
Jeremiah 1 (Chapters 1-29) NEW!
Jeremiah 2 (Chapters 30-52) NEW!

As you can see, they are still working on several sections of the Old Testament. Some books of the bible are rather large and must be broken into 2 volumes. Both Genesis & Exodus contain 2 volumes each.

In all, I would need the above 13 volumes to bring my library up to date with the available volumes. I can obtain all of them through various sources; however, the cheapest place would be the Scripture Truth Book Company at a cost of $28.95 each, or $376.35 total. With the Scripture Truth Book Company, shipping is free on orders over $100, so $376.35 would be my total.

Thus far, I’ve already spent $607.95 for the 21 volumes currently on the shelves below. That would bring my total to $984.30 for the entire 34 volume collection, which is still not a complete coverage of the entire bible.

I saw one report where Jeremiah 2 also covers Lamentations.

If so, Ezekiel and Daniel would still need to be written to finish up the major prophets. From there, all 12 books of the minor prophets would need to be covered. I would image that several might be covered under one volume’ however, Daniel would probably be another 2 volume set.

Finally, the five books of wisdom (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon) would need to be written. Certainly Psalms & Proverbs would take more than 1 volume each.

Above is a photo of the main, non-computer, working area of my office.

It just doesn’t get any better than this.

On the table is a standing holding my giant print King James Bible. In front of it is one of my Preacher’s Outline & Sermon bibles. This is about all I need with my bible study. Within arm’s reach are my other study bibles and commentaries.

Here is more of a close-up.

Richard Francis Orrell – A True Gentleman

RebUncleRichard16Dec06.jpg
Yesterday, our family got together for lunch. Below is a photo of myself and my uncle, Richard Francis Orrell.

During my life, I have known only two true gentlemen; my father, and his brother – Richard Francis Orrell.

Uncle Richard was a lay minister. The first wedding he performed was my parent’s. I was the second person he baptised.

Both he and my father were very soft-spoken, even tempered men.

Uncle Richard has supported everything I’ve done my entire life. He’s always been keenly interested in my genealogy findings and writings.

He is very interested in my entering bible college in the spring and asked all sorts of questions about the college and the courses, yesterday afternoon.

I’m trying to get a higher quality of this image as I’d like to print an enlargement out for my desk.

Richard Francis Orrell is also a member of the Depraved Brain’s Administration.

The ‘New’ Reb

Reb16Dec06.jpgAs most people know I shaved my head when the chemo caused my father to loose his hair.

He had a very difficult time when that happened. At the time, he was almost 86 years old and possessed a full head of hair. When it started to happen he went outside and stood there for 1/2 hour, literally just pulling his hair out. A neighbor told me he could see how upset my father was at the time and how much it visably affected him.

I was in West Virginia at the time. That Monday morning I drove to a barber shop in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, and told the barber to shave my head. I couldn’t even hardly get the words out, but it was my way of showing my love and support for my father, during this very difficult time.

After his passing, several people have asked when I was going to let my hair grow back. The answer is ‘never’.

My love and support for my father didn’t end on 20 October 2006.

I am reminded of what he went through each and every time I shave my head. I am reminded of all of the chemo patients around the world when I shave.

This photos isn’t the best and is not as sharp as I would like. But it is one of the first ones that I have.

I’ll try to post more later.

Why is it that our children can’t read the Bible in school, but criminals can in prison?

Also, how come in a court of law you swear on the Holy Bible, yet the 10 Commandants can’t be displayed outside the building?
