My daughter and her husband J.

My daughter and her husband J. went away for the weekend to a bible retreat and while the parents were away Gamma got to play...with her youngest grandson...Eli.
I had the privileged of looking after Eli. for the weekend and I thought I would send my daughter"Shmooygirl" some pictures via my blog...although this post is for my daughter, any one can enjoy the photos of our days...(I believe Shmoo has posted some pics of her trip,@her blog above.)

Eli. and I started our day out side on the deck, he loved running back and forth!

off to the swing set we go...
Once back inside Eli.Played with our newest kitty...Lucky Three Buttons!!!

"Lucky" Because we decided to keep him after someone just dropped him off on our door step!!! 
"Three Buttons" Because he has three black markings on his tummy like buttons!!!

 Eli.picked up his cat puppet and headed for the window.
 Then he cried "Mama"...oh boy!!!
Fast thinking Gamma!...Off to the kitchen for some fun...
Nothing like a little Tupperware to make a baby happy!!!
How about some yummy waffles and plums for a hungry boy.

 Oh Boy! Now what??? He's keeping me hopping!!!
Okay, off in the wagon we go.....
Theres a happy boy!!!
To the park
Gamma and Eli. God blessed us with a beautiful Fall day.
A little run about...

Time for Gamma to rest.
Oh...Look who decided to join us...
We could have used you early Mr.B!!!
Once back home I made supper...Eli ate everything!!!
Grilled chicken breast with Wild Rice Casserole
Check my side bar for the recipe in Mrs.G's kitchen...Yummy!!!

Sleep tight my beautiful grandson....
In the morning breakfast, before church!!!
More like feeding the cat time???
See you after church mom and dad!!!
I picked Bylla and her brother Lu up after church...
While I had Eli, his brother and sister were with their other Gammy and Papa.
We all went for Ice cream, while waiting for mommy and daddy to arrive.
Bylla has on one of her many Scottish dresses... for church going.

Bylla got a parcel in the mail from the US.
This cute Eiffel tower T, from Jamie from Mimi's Corner
She finds the cutest things for her little Miss C...
...and sends them for my grand daughter Bylla.
There you go my Shmooygirl...
This Gamma has to work tomorrow, so I'll be away from my PC for a bit...
till then


While I have been in my "sick bed" these past few months I have had much time for reading and contemplating the Holy Scriptures.
I am very surprised,  to say the least at what I found.
I have always and will continue to believe in the Holy writing, although the mistranslation of this book astounds me!
I too will say,  there are versions of the bible I will not use in my study like the NIV..
too many translational errors.
I am not saying that I am a bible scholar to any degree, but it does not take a "rocket scientist" nor a  bible scholar to see the discrepancies in this version.

In my sudies I been using...
Parallel Bible - KJV ASV BAS YLT
I also have a Hebrew Interlinear close by.

Some of the most amazing web sites I found...
fill my mind with knowledge of days gone by, and days yet to come....
The Common Man's Prospective
Analysis from the Bible and History
Written, edited and published by common men for common men.
The Septuagint writings are what Jesus would have used when He spoke in the Temple.

Another very important discovery is the "secret" book of Enoch. This book was found The Book of Enoch, written during the second century B.C.E., is one of the most important non-canonical apocryphal works, and probably had a huge influence on early Christian, particularly Gnostic, beliefs.
 This book once considered Cannon.
It seems to have been deliberately removed, around the Constantine era.
Some say the book of Enoch once was next to the book of Job in the Holy Scriptures.
The man Enoch and the book of Enoch is refereed
 to in the bible...
5:18. And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch
5:19 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters
5:20 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.
5:21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah
5:22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters
5:23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years
5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
11:5. By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.
Jude 1
13. They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever.
14. Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men: "See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones
15. to judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly of all the ungodly acts they have done in the ungodly way, and of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him."

 but has been left out of Cannon.
It seems to be "too strange" for every day people to handle?
I find it exhilarating!

Two things immediately come to mind. One, not much is written about Enoch in the Bible. And two, what obviously commands attention is one of the great mysterious of the Bible. What happened to Enoch? God took him, not only that—he didn't die. But don't fundamentalist Christians like to bandy about the quote "It is given only once to die and then the second death," when they are arguing against reincarnation? Oh, so this is another conveniant exception. Well, what happened to him? Is there somebody else in history who left this planet in a ressurected body? Could the phenomena of ascending back to God not be the exclusive ability and purpose of one man? One of those so-called 'Lost Books of the Bible,' called the Book of Jasher might offer a clue. The Old Testament even mentions Jasher twice, giving it some legitimacy:
Old Testament references to the Book of Jasher:
"Is not this written in the Book of Jasher?" Joshua, 10:13.
          "Behold it is written in the Book of Jasher." II Samuel, 1:18

 Apparently the Book of Jasher could have been inserted in place of the Book of Genesis since much of it overlaps including the story of Adam and Eve. In some ways, the Book of Jasher is more complete. There is much more on Enoch. If the goal of life is to break the wheel of reincarnation and ascend back to God, then that is reason enough for those who have tampered with the Bible to leave out the Book of Jasher. Why, because it mentions the ascension five times. Here are the excerpts from the Book of Jasher which reference Enoch. You can buy the book or get it online at the links on the bottom of the page.

Thia may not be every ones cup of tea, but I love this kinda read!

How Good He Is

Have you ever had a healing miracle?
Has God ever touched you,  in such a way you knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that He cares...
about you?
I have had such an experience.
I am not talking about the many times when some thing extraordinary has happened to me, nor times when I would come across the right amount of money at the right time, or even all those strange eagle sightings that are way beyond the ordinary, No I am not even talking about all the crazy way's God found for me to receive Grace in my life.
I am talking about when God touches you and, you receive a  physical healing miracle. 
I have heard of others confessing that they have had such experience's, but I never really believed they received a healing from a higher power..
I thought they must be exaggerating or mistaken or bound up in some kind of euphoria...well,  I sure believe now! I understand what it is to have a physical healing miracle,  the kind when your are healed on the spot! AND I know in my heart it real, and this is no coincidence.

I have been very sick lately, for the past 7 days with strep throat...Never under estimate strep throat!  I thought I could fight it off on my own, like I have fought many other things in my life, you know the tough girl"I don't need anyone", asking God to help me, never occurred to me. The times in the past I have ask for healing, it didn't happen so I stopped asking. My big ego had been under the impression that I didn't need God, so never bothered to chat with him any more...truthfully I was and have been very angry with Him, and was of the mind he was angry with me too.
  So here I am with this very painful virus, fever, body aches, my throat was so sore that I couldn't even swallow my own saliva. On the second day,  the pain went into my right side and I started vomiting and got dehydrated. I hadn't eaten nor drank any thing in almost 48 hours. Still, the words "help me Lord" would not pass my lips, my husband had his own issues with the creator and did not bend a knee in prayer for me either....what a couple of stubborn old farts we are!
 The pain in my side was so bad, violently vomiting, B. said "its enough! you need to go to the hospital", he must have said it at least 5 times, I ignored his beseeching, but this time I knew he was right I have to go to the hospital. My loving husband helped me dress, and drove me to the hospital, he got me to the emergency room. The nurses took me in and hooked me up to an IV machine that was running fast, this would hydrated me quickly. I was given Maxeran for nausea, and a pain killer through the IV drip. The doctor told me that I had a strep infection in my throat, if left untreated it could travel though out the body.  This infection went to my liver, that resulted in terrible pain in my right painful the doctor could barely examine me. Blood test's did confirmed a liver infection as well as strep throat, and antibiotic was prescribed. The pain killers prescribed helped allot. I was on my way to feeling better. After a couple of hours I was doing much better. I could hardly believe that a few hours ago I was so sick I could barley walk into this place.

Shortly there after,  we found our selves walking out of the hospital going home. For the next two days I was starting to feel much better, and planed to go to work the next day. That night I started to feel nauseous again, about 8:30 that night a head ache had hit me so hard, the pain was like nothing I have never had before. I couldn't move, couldn't talk, my neck was radiating so much pain I feared meningitis, B. had been rubbing my head for hours, I had taken 3 different pain killers to no avail.  B. placed a cold wrap around my head...but nothing took the pain away. This pain had lasted 8 long hours, non stop.  I grab my own head hard,to try an squeeze the pain out,  I was in agony, my stomach was turning, I was going vomit... I think I will have to go back to the hospital. At 3:30 AM in my tears, I broke through my pride and asked B. if he would pray for me, there was hesitation on his part, but he did as I bid, and  prayed for my healing, I verbally agreed for healing in Jesus name. 

As B. prayed I could hardly believe what was happening... the pain was going away...I felt it completely go from my brain, by the time he said amen...Oh my God! The pain was completely gone! I started to cry, to praise the Lord... with my hand's raised high I gave heart felt thanks.B.was speechless, all he could say was "really, Its really gone?" Tears of thanks, of joy, knowing God heard our prayer and answered! God did this miracle for me, He relieved me of the pain in my head, the hospital trip was not necessary, the great healer made contact!...That blows the socks off me feet.
I had to write this down so I should never for get what he has done.
I only wish, I could type and tell this story in such a way that the amazing miracle could be felt by the reader.
