The last book I read and enjoyed
Women of the Bible - listed prominent and merely mentioned women of Biblical times. It not only gave geneology, what they were noted for, it presented the socio-economic conditions of that time period, significance of various traditions of the world, churches and cultures of that era, kept a perspective/significance of what was going on, perceptions, implications and impact actions/words had at that time and compared those things to today;s society/world/traditions and precepts of God for mankind
The three things which I am most thankful for
- For a loving God/Son/Holy Spirit who seeks our good, is forgiving; gives chances to to it better next time to His glory and honor.
- Thankful for my two adult children and their families; that God keeps them from harm and blesses them with His continual love and protection
- People, nature, music who show Gods love and infinite mercy.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My kindness and forebearance is not a sign of weakness. It often takes a tremendous amount of restraint, patience and praying to be kind when human nature wants to do or say something else.
Friends Describe me as
