According to ICOM, the International Council of Museums, May 18 is always International Museum Day. Celebrate by going to a museum, or, if that’s not going to work today, take a virtual museum tour online (or create your own temporary museum at home!). Today celebrates not just the large famous museums, but the little hole-in-the-wall places located around the world. However, today I’m including a few of the biggest, most famous museums that I have ever visited (sadly, there’s no way I could visit any of these today – most of them would require a long flight!):What museums would you add?
At the beginning of Esther’s story, King Xerxes held a giant festival of sorts, which somewhat reminded me of a museum. Ergo . . . today’s verse:
“For a full 180 days he displayed the vast wealth of his kingdom and the splendor and glory of his majesty.”
