Over the pandemic, I started to build a collection of quirky and interesting dictionaries. Today I treated myself to a pit stop at a local used book shop and scored this one. The clincher for me is the line “including the fallen angels” 😊😇😬 I will post another book I scored tomorrow

wanderinglynn Love it! ❤️ 1w

1 & 2 Corinthians are such incredible reads! Which verses stood out to you the most? #BibleBuddyRead #WeeklyWrapUp

BookBabe There are so many poignant verses. I think the one that has stood out the most is 1 Corinthians 5:9-13. 2w
BookBabe The most important of that passage is verse 11: "But actually, I wrote you not to associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister and is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or verbally abusive, a drunkard or a swindler. Do not even eat with such a person.” (CSB) 2w

@TheBookHippie I‘m so glad you compelled me to reread this! I hadn‘t picked it up since high school and there‘s just SO much in it! Definitely one of those works you could read 100 times and get something new each time. #FoodAndLit India @Butterfinger @Texreader @Catsandbooks

TheBookHippie Yay!!!!!!!! Oh I‘m so glad! 2w
Texreader That‘s wonderful! 2w
Catsandbooks That's so great! ❤️🇮🇳 2w

I don‘t love all the translation in this edition, but I really like this description of Krishna‘s nature

“earth, water, fire, wind, space, mind, understanding, and individuality…”
“I am the taste in the water, Arjuna, the light in the moon and the sun, OM resonant in all sacred lore, the sound in space, valor in men. I am the pure fragrance in earth, the brilliance in fire, the life in all living creatures, the penance in ascetics.”

I haven‘t read this since high school and am amazed at how completely different the things standing out to me this time are.

Uh, I didn‘t know Pema Chödron has published a new book. I happened to fall into Boswell Book Company and saw it on the new releases shelf. Chödron‘s books, When Things Fall Apart & Living Beautifully: with Uncertainty and Change, are two of my go-to life manuals.

sarahbellum Oooo thanks for sharing! 👀 1mo
BookBosomed1 @sarahbellum Welcome! It was such a happy, unexpected find. 1mo

Or in this case, Multi-Week Wrap-Up 😬🙈
I haven‘t been able to keep up with posting as much as I‘d like…My hubby, our daughter, and both her grandmas and I all have our birthdays in September & October. Add that to what is already a very busy season of life and, well, you get the idea. So here‘s an update on the #BibleBuddyRead‘s progress:
☑️Ezekiel ☑️Daniel ☑️Psalms ☑️Romans

Would you like to share your thoughts?

BookBabe With all these birthdays, and especially trying to get enough sleep to keep in good health, I‘ve managed to get behind, so if you have too, you‘re not alone! Seems I can only read the Bible at a relatively quick pace if I‘m the only person in the room, and that generally only happens if I‘m willing/able to get up very early, before everyone else. So now I‘m playing catch-up. 😳 1mo
Roary47 You are not alone! Between Dance Class, Music Class, School, Work, etc I can only focus read in the early hours. 1mo

Roary47 I‘m working my way through Ezekiel, and I‘m just seeing a similar pattern for Jerusalem not doing so good and they are being told they will be in trouble with being destroyed. 1mo
BookBabe The prophets are slower reads for me, and while I‘ve preferred the CSB version for most books of the Bible so far, I find that not to be the case for the prophets. I‘ve been comparing versions for Ezekiel in particular and I think the ESV is preferable for the prophets. Maybe that‘ll be one of the next versions I read. I‘m trying to stick with the CSB for this read, while supplementing with other versions as needed and as time allows. 1mo
BookBabe @Roary47 I‘m still working through Ezekiel too! 🙈 I have my alarm set for 5:30am to get up and get back to reading (!!!) but I‘m tempted to just get up now and get after it since I don‘t seem to be sleeping anyway 😂 1mo
Mimi28 Happy Belated Birthday to you and your whole family!! 😊❤️🙏🏽 if I did dress up for Halloween would be the bride of Frankenstein with all of my grey hairs sprouting around my edges lately and I could be wearing an apron that says “carbs… carbs…” lol. I have been writing letters to God as I journal. It helps. My Bible reading is off and on also. 😊❤️🙏🏽 1mo
BookBabe @Mimi28 Thank you! 😄 4w

This is a moving memoir,about Elaine Pagel‘s forging a seemingly impossible pathway to the creation of a new self,after experiencing the death of her 6year old son, & about 15 months later, her husband.As she states: “ I‘ve interwoven this personal story with the work that I love; acknowledging such connections helps us understand the past and illuminate the present.”
I‘m still reeling & processing her story.I have read some of her previous work.

Christine Thanks for sharing about this one - has been on my virtual and physical TBR shelves for too long! 1mo
