Happy Sunday morning everyone. Hopefully you are all enjoying your weekend. It is very chilly here today, and I am excited because I only have to work two days this week!

TOTD: I'm currently getting ready to go to church, so I'm a bit of spiritual mood. Tell us your favorite bible verse or passage.

I am very fond of Proverbs 31:10-31

I also like Romans 15:13: Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirt

I am not a strict Biblicist, but I love the language of The King James translation of the Scriptures. Because of my upbringing I grew up steeped in lyrical phrasing of the King James Bible and the poetry of old hymns.

I am especially fond of the Wisdom Books. This passage from Ecclesiastes is meaningful and lovely.





Ecclesiastes
OR, THE PREACHER


A Time for Everything

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6 a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboreth?

10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.

11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God.

14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.


The Injustice of Life

16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.

17 I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?

22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?

I've never read the bible.

I do own one. It's a BIG King James edition, it sits on a credenza in the entry way to my house, right by the front door.

It's hollow and there is a 40 calibre Glock inside it.

Since 2002 when I had a high risk pregnancy my favorite verse as I stressed and worried was Matthew 6:28

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Now that she is six, and I want her to clean her room I realized that somehow that little fetus took those words to heart :p

The bible is the first place anyone looks. Try the written words of Ghandi on pacificism, trust me, no one would ever suspect :o
