Okay y'all. I've started this before. I let myself get distracted.
I'm reading through the Bible, Genesis to Revelation, asking questions about what I don't understand. That is going to be a lot of questions.
It's my hope that through the years I've been friending folks on Facebook, that some of them are Bible Scholars. Tonight, I've read through Chapter 10, in Genesis.
I underwent a stress test today in preparation for what I'm hoping is some serious working out. I've allowed myself to get into terrible condition. I don't feel good, and I don't like it.
It was a nuclear stress test, via Dr's orders. They dilated my veins and then shot me full of something that made me feel sick, and caused my heart to beat pretty fast.
It also produced a painful, tingling sensation in my chest, neck, shoulders, arms and head. Not to mention making it difficult to breath, which is part of the reason I'm having the stress test done.
After that, a lovely lady named Sherry, gave me a bag full of peanut butter crackers, and told me to eat all of them to get some fat, or grease, in my system. Y'all know what I told 'em. "That's why I'm here. I'm trying to get a lot of fat out of my system. But, okay, I'll go eat these crackers."
Thirty minutes later, Sherry, came, and got me from the Hamilton, TX, Hospital Cafeteria. A cafeteria that consists of about four round tables and matching chairs. But they have free tea, and coffee. (Now I know where to go in Hamilton when my pockets are empty and I need a little tea and coffee.)
Oh, I was talkin' about Genesis. The translation I'm reading is the Thompson Chain Reference Study Bible: New American Standard Bible, version. Mercy, at least I don't have titles like that for my books and stories.
Apparently there's always been water, and there's always been God. Did you know God created sea monsters, They're out there according to Genesis 1:21. Then in Genesis 1: 26, God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness-" Whom is this "Us," and, "Our?"
In Chapter 2, Eve comes alongside Adam, and the translator starts naming rivers. Now you know that's gonna' get everyone excited. Find all these rivers, find the garden of Eden. Good luck with that. The rivers are Pishon, Gihon, Tigris, and the Euphrates.
Skipping ahead to Genesis, Chapter: 10, is the story of Noah. Y'all know that just leads to more water.
I'll be back tomorrow with more questions.
See y'all then...
