Cusp-a point of transition, as from one historical period to the next;
the borders between the twelve astrological signs.
You are considered to be "on the cusp" if you were born
within a day or two of the beginning or end of any sign.

Elijah Receiving Bread from the Widow of Zarephath, 1621 - 1624
J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles.

 Elijah the prophet went to Zarephath.
As he arrived at the entrance of the city,
a widow was gathering sticks there; he called out to her,
"Please bring me a small cupful of water to drink."
She left to get it, and he called out after her,
"Please bring along a bit of bread."
 1 Kings 17:10-11



 The Great High Priest, no information

 Christ did not enter into a sanctuary made by hands,
a copy of the true one, but heaven itself,
that he might now appear before God on our behalf.
 Heb 9:24

Unknown Artist. The Widow’s Mite. Basilica di Sant’Apollinare Nuovo. Ravenna ITALY. 6th century

"Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more
than all the other contributors to the treasury.
For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth,
but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had,
her whole livelihood."

Mark 12:43-44
