  1. Whats for Supper...

    We had hamburgers and potato salad last night. My mom makes a great potato salad. Tonight I'll be making homemade tacos. Num-num!

    They are fascinating!
  3. The Mimic Octopus - Fascinating!

    You are more than welcome, Alan.
  4. Whats for Supper...

    For supper last night, we ate leftover spaghetti and pizza. Oh, and the leftovers from the jello cake Mom made for the potluck.
  5. What a Creator we have! I got this in my email this morning. God's diversity in creation is amazing. The article has pictures that show some of what the Mimic can do. http://creation.com/mimic-octopus "In 1998 a fantastic creature was discovered off the coast of the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia. The Mimic Octopus (Thaumoctopus mimicus) is the first living thing ever observed to imitate the shape, colour, texture, posture and behaviour of several other animal species. It performs multiple impersonations as it crosses the ocean floor."
  6. NOW what do I do...

    They've already received the money for it, as you noted. You're just redeeming them. If you don't, they make out with free money given to them. I say redeem them - online, so you don't have to step foot into the actual store. Or, if the exchange works out, exchange them (but then you are just passing the cards along to someone else to go to the store with, so...). It won't be long before life and death issues will be a reality here. Things like this bathroom junk are paving the way.
  9. laid aside his garments

    I'm sure they were his outer garments. Back in that day, men wore tunics under their robes. So likely he put aside his outer garments but still had on his tunic. The God who commands modesty wouldn't wash feet buck naked.

    That sounds delicious! Tonight we're having chicken stir fry. Yes, we are frying the veggies. The chicken was grilled. Heheh
  11. Whats for Supper...

    Baked is good, if you do it right. As is fried. We're eclectic that way.
  12. Whats for Supper...

    LOL - no, it's not because it's thin that I can almost drink it. It's just that delicious! And, no. The fish was not fried. We baked it.
  13. Whats for Supper...

    Tonight we're having fish, potatoes, and salad. Found this DELICIOUS blue cheese dressing that I could almost drink! But I don't - I save it for my salad.
  14. Whats for Supper...

    Leftover homemade spaghetti, garlic bread and salad wedge. It's not supper time yet, but we're looking forward to it.
  15. Great Study Bible

    I have to agree with Jordan and Bro. Scott. Wretched, I know you specifically addressed Bro. Scott, but I thought I'd just mention something. It grates both mine and my hubby's nerves when we hear someone say something like "this was a bad translation" or "the translators should have said thus and so." In our opinions, the translators were much better educated and acquainted with the ancient languages than anyone living today. Based on the academic plane alone, we are both of the belief that it is arrogant to the max for modern correcters to claim that they can translate better. Based on the spiritual plane, we believe that God preserved His Word via the translators, giving us the primo translation for English speaking peoples. And that it is spiritually arrogant for self-described theologians or preachers who think they've studied so well to correct God's Word. We do not, however, think it is a problem to look at the Greek or Hebrew definition of a word. Let's look at a word that is familiar to all of us. The word conversation. We all know in the KJB, the word means lifestyle. But where did we learn that? We were told that's what it meant. Because of the Greek from which it came. The dictionary defines it as speech. Even the middle english (which in-depth dictionaries will show) doesn't define it as lifestyle. It comes close, because it means "living among." And so we look at the Greek. There is no sin in defining a word. Now, let me add to that, that if someone is truly convinced of the Holy Spirit that that someone would be sinning to look into the Hebrew or Greek, then by all means do not do so! But it's a fine line to tread to tell someone else they are wrong doing so. Again, it is very wrong, though, to say that something would be better translated as something else. I hope you don't mind that I put in my two cents, wretched, since you addressed Bro. Scott. And I hope this makes sense. It's something my hubs and I have been discussing of late, because we've had to hear some messages recently where the speaker has done this. Makes us pretty unhappy... BTW - we've heard folks correct from both languages. Arrogance knows no language limitation.
