Book Review: The Winding Ways Quilt

26 Sep

 

I have had quilts all my life…gifts from both grandmothers and a bonus from Great grandmother Hall (photo on the “About” page).

Until I browsed the aisles of the Used Book Store in White Pine, TN I did not know there was a series of books on quilts and quilting.  I bought four of the series by Jennifer Chiaverini.  Jennifer is delightful…delving the reader in the process of quilt making, choosing fabrics, patterns and the network of friendships that develop along the way.

Other books by Jennifer Chiaverini:  An Elm Creek Quilt Sampler, An Elm Creek Quilts Album, Circle of Quilters, The Wedding Quilt, The Giving Quilt, The Winding Ways Quilt and The Aloha Quilt

Of course on my return trip to the Used book store I find two more authors…

Jan Cerney and Arlene Sachitano both with multiple titles.

“It’s Going to be Biblical”

“It’s Going to be Biblical” Q  Post 3649

This quote is the title of a video post from andweknow.com

Check it out @ 3.40min mark (skipping a commercial).

By the way, the origin of “And we know” is

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 KJV
Biblical references have been significant.  There are numerous connotations.  Here is a sample from my twitter feed:

 

October 28, 2019 Twitter “It’s going to be BIBLICAL” Q

“Today in 539 BC, Cyrus the Great entered Babylon and freed the Jewish people from captivity. His respect for human rights and religious freedom inspired America’s founding fathers. The U.S. stands with the Iranian people, who are blocked by the regime from celebrating his legacy.”  Mike Pompeo Sec of State Twitter

Refer to Isaiah 45

1) WATCH THE WATER

What if I told you that water has a spiritual effect in washing always sins (and their evil spells).

Read Ezekiel 36:25-26.

Read 1 John 5:6-7.

Jeremiah 29:11 contains a precious promise held dear by Christians the world over. … In this verse, Jeremiah affirms that God is in control, and moreover, He has good things in store: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

My wife @frog_E_gurl, sent me this song and I was reminded of a verse in Genesis 50:20 “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” God has a plan, even in our hardships. #TrustHim  https://t.co/htiEnEu3rD

 Luke 8:17 “For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to LIGHT.”

Since I compiled this…I’m thinking at great resolution for 2021 will be for me to complete another One Year Bible Study.  The depth of the entire text is very helpful.

 

 

Q…

25 Aug

Having spent 2018 posting my progress reading the Bible in one year (for the first time), I am taking the liberty of sharing several new to me Biblical subjects brought to my attention by Qanons.

 

Many or most messages on the Q board on 8chan have multiple meanings.  For example, one possible meaning of “Q” is high level security clearance.

There is also The Lost Gospel “Q”, the Original Sayings of Jesus.  The appendix of this book shows nearly 50 researchers working on this subject in the 1990s.  Historians of the synoptic Gospels in Germany in the 1830s (p 26) referred to content shared by the gospels of Matthew and Luke as “Q”…short for the German word “Quelle” or “source.”

The Book of Enoch is not canonical/included in the Bible. Enoch is identified with Genesis 5:18.  Enoch was the great-great-great-great-grandson of Adam.  Curiously, there are lessons for us from Enoch forthcoming from a Qanon.

AND…

Interesting research captured in this Twitter thread.

Who is Q, you ask? @mitchellvii.

Here is an explanation put together by brilliant Anons.

https://t.co/jszRYJrD23

Q is synonymous with high level security clearance, like the clearance given to Jack Ryan in the Hunt for Red October.

Frequent messages:  Think for yourself.  Research.  Red pill.  Justice.  Sheep no more.

In his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, British scientist Richard Dawkins defended his newly coined word meme, which he defined as “a unit of cultural transmission.” … Meme itself, like any good meme, caught on fairly quickly, spreading from person to person as it established itself in the language.

Q followers are also known as Qanons (anon=anonymous)

Perhaps one could say Jenni developed a matrix juxtapositions of scientists and researchers in settings of…

Island life where supplies are delivered every two weeks…no utilities or ground transportation in the Southern Hemisphere contrasting with one of the oldest communities in Europe…Unst, the northern most inhabited island in the British Isles.

Book Review: The Miraculous Fever Tree-the Cure that changed the world

27 May

 

“Absorbing and SUPERBLY researched” with my emphasis on superbly.  I agree with Miranda Seymour!  Rocco is an award winning investigative journalist.  Her interest in medicine began with her grandparents in Africa in the 1920s.  They were blessed to get quinine tablets made locally because cinchona seeds/trees from Peru had been planted there decades earlier.

World history over four centuries is told from

  1.  Tragic loss of life due to malaria in Europe, Africa, Panama, South America, Middle East, India and Asia.
  2. The cure identified by Jesuits in Peru in the 1600s as quinine (so bitter tasting, people thought they were being poisoned) written documentation in early 1630s.
  3. Theories challenged!  Treatment changed!  (Malaria DNA dates back to 5th century.)
  4. Rocco accessed original records from 1624 and more periods…exquisite documentation, details that enrich readers with life, times, goals, accomplishments of key figures.
  5. “Tree of Fevers” published in 1713 in Madrid
  6. The narrative fully immerses the reader wars, exploration, building the Panama Canal, challenges of exporting seeds and cinchona tree to other continents to save thousands of lives globally.

Enjoy reading!

Book Review: In the Blue Hour

8 May

 

Elizabeth Hall is my maiden name.  I like seeing my former name on book covers 😉  I have also read Miramont’s Ghost and The Music of the Deep.

In The Blue Hour multi-generational grief found peace of mind and healing.  The story unfolds in the cultures of New Mexico with a compelling connection to Olalla, Tennessee.

Reference:  Consulting mediums is condemned and forbidden in the Bible.  Deuteronomy 18:10–11 echoes Leviticus and expands it, including diviners, sorcerers, witches/wizards, anyone who casts spells, and anyone who practices child sacrifice.  This link is a concise summary from GotQuestions.  https://www.gotquestions.org/what-is-a-medium.html

However, there is an engaging exchange, point/counter point to rationalize “hunches” and explain the journey.  BONUS:  Recommendation of Spook:  Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach

Peace of mind calls for knowledge and connections in spite of 1000s of miles distance and decades of time lapse.
