Welcome to Connections. I have been looking for a way to share my scripture research with family and friends and this is how I've decided to do that.
Over the years, I have collected fascinating and fun information from reading all sorts of books. I am extremely blessed in that I was born a speed reader and average reading 4-5 books a week, although I can plow through more if I'm really motivated and can squeeze in the time. I read while brushing my teeth and stopping at stop lights, and sometimes I don't even mind waiting at places like the DMV because it is a good excuse to get some serious reading done.
I am mostly interested in languages, symbolism, scriptures, cultural history (especially Middle-Eastern and European), Shakespeare, and popular science. (Oooh, as I reread that last sentence, I sound kind of stuffy. I'm NOT.) I pride myself on appreciating clever humor.
After taking notes and accumulating them for several years. I just can't seem to find the time right now to actually edit them and get them ready to print in book form. Soooooo, I am going to share my notes! Most of them will be in the form of a scripture and a one or two paragraph commentary. Many of them are insights that make my heart sing, and I hope they will delight you as well.
Except for my current plan to have "Weird Scripture Wednesday", I'm not sure how the rest will be posted, but I do know that it will be eclectic.
1. selecting or choosing from various sources.
2. made up of what is selected from different sources.
3. not following any one system, as of philosophy, medicine, etc., but selecting and using what are considered the best elements of all systems.
It is one of my self-assigned missions in life to make scriptures interesting and understandable . I love learning about them and especially making sense of the bewildering ones. I hope you will share your insights with me as well. I absolutely hate the idea that there is something good out there and that I am missing out on it.
