My condition is pretty good for an old gal...still have ONE knee that works! Have to have my brain recharged once in a while though.

Thanks Mudge...you know, as far as Caps go...I don't know how that happens. I'll just be happily tapping away and woops, there it is...rampant caps, all over the page. And since I Don't seem to be able to stop doing it, I just go with the flow. :roll:

:oops: WOW! Ran in my blog again...I would faint, but the floor is just to darn hard.

Monday PIM

Unattended, but precious words
in his heart inscribed, Man
through strength subdued
rises filled with hope inside...

only two caps this time Mudge, just to annoy you... :evillaugh:

You said you were interested in end time prophecies and the Middle East? I've done some pretty deep research into that topic. Would love to sit down for coffee and share it with ya. Some of it has been a real eye opener. :shock:

I,ve read almost all the end time series but our library is being rebuilt so haven't had the last one or two yet. I think it's soppy writing but the message is fascinating.

Are you talking about the LaHaye series? I've read them all...not bad, but I believe he puts his own slant on things that are not necessarily Biblical.

I wonder, have you ever studied it from a Two House (Houses of Israel--Judah and Ephraim) perspective? Looking at how the restoration of those houses and the Kingdom back to Israel as prophesied makes the major and minor Prophets fit with the book of Revelation? Fascinating stuff Dear Lady.....fascinating!

Yes, LaHaye. No, I haven't but looks like I'll have to put it on the list. :)

I would love to hear about your research and discuss what you've found, Ran. I too have read the Left Behind series and I agree that, the way it is presented does indeed reflect LaHaye's personal beliefs.

I may get in trouble for saying this, but I wonder if it is possible to read the Bible and NOT put one's own spin on it . . . and I also wonder if perhaps that is not intentional? I mean, it could be said that all great literature takes on a life of it's own . . . but the Bible is one of those rare examples where the entire point of the literature is to get readers in touch with the Author . . .

I appreciate your opinion Mudge. It makes since that, as we are all at different levels of Spirtual growth on our journey through this life, that God in his infinate wisdom has given us his word in a form that speaks to each of us regardless of where we are on our personal journey.

I knew you would, Mlou.

There are probably as many interpretations of some scripture as there are folks that have taken the time to read it. You're right on that account Mudge. My study and research has been in the realm of the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel as prophesied in both the old and new testaments.

Also a secular study of the origins of the Christian faith and the many changes it's gone through over the centuries. I am also studying replacement theology (the Church replacing Israel--all twelve tribes--as God's chosen people)...and of course prophecy fulfilled and prophesy surrounding the 'end times'. I am studying under the tuteledge of Jewish, Messianic Jewish, Messianic Two House Believers and Christian theologians.

I would invite any discussion. It's been a pretty amazing journey so far :)

Thursday pim

For those come seeking

I would love to hear and discuss anything you have to share...I'm not exactly sure what the replacement theology is...would you care to elaborate?

It has been quite a long time since I have visited my writing blog. I've missed talking with my friends at WT. So I'm going to try spending some time here each day. Truly, I hadn't realized it had been this long...guess I was caught up in my own life and shoved everything else to the back.

In case anyone misses my post in "The Coffee Shop" but does read my blog; Avon and HarperCollins is sponsering a contest in which their Editors and top romance authors judge your chapter entries. The site is www.avonfanlit.com and I've left a link to my chapter entry if anyone would like to rate it before the time limit runs out. The link is in "The Coffee Shop" under Something for Romance writers.

More than just romance writers are submitting because the grand prize is 5 thousand and a development deal with FoxTV.

Very nice, Bess! It's THAT LIST again, so I just ignore it. 30 or 40 tries at it is enough...more than enough.

I know Mlou, but it has been so long since I did a pim, (and it showed) that I thought I'd give it a shot. :oops:

Just checked the stats on my chapter sub at avon fanlit. I didn't make the top ten for chapter 4... :helpme:

disappointed but there is still hope for chapters 5-7 :scratch: I think...

Your PIM was fine. I just refuse to use that list again! :-D

Awww...I guess we needed more time to know about it and get in and vote. I bet some of the others have everyone they know mobilized to vote!! Have you the other chaps written or must you wait for details?

I have to wait for them to post the plot for the next chapter, then only a couple days to write and post it before the voting begins.
