Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
Today's mythology lesson, boys and girls, is about the little-known character Sisypha (younger sister of the more popular Sisyphus), whom the gods punished by assigning her the task of perpetual dish washing. She was forced to wash dishes till she was sure she'd done them all...only to walk out of the kitchen and discover a bowl or a plate, a fork or a spoon, sitting forgotten in some other room. And there was always another one there each time she left the kitchen, no matter how carefully she'd checked the last time. Finally, after centuries had passed, everybody stopped believing in the Greek gods, and Sisypha, much to her relief, ceased to have existed.
