Day 5 E100 Can We Talk?

         No one knows us better that our God.  He walks among us to see how we are doing,  just like a parent checks in on their children to see if they are playing nicely.  We are more like our God than we think.

         But don't be surprised if you are stopped or hindered from doing something you thought was a good idea.  Because pride may not be far off. And it may not always be the enemy but the Lord that is confounding your language. Check yourself.

          Day 5 covered Genesis11:1-9 The Tower of Babel.

CBM - Abraham's Well Final Discussion

Author: Sharon Ewell Foster
Final Discussion: chapters 42-62
Abraham's Well - CBM calls this 'Inspirational Fiction'

Excerpt: Abraham Proof
He had kissed his wife and their two children goodbye.  "Who are you?" He asked them as he mounted his horse.  "we are the grand children of Armentia. Armentia who has a star. We are black and we are Cherokee...They were so young but he knew they would remember. (page 268)

Q. Did the book end the way you expected?
A. The story didn't end the way I expected but it was believable.  I was especially touched by two
     scenes. One was the moments Armentia's lost son spent with his children before going off to war.
     The other was when Armentia's grandsons carried her.

Q. Would you recommend this book to other readers?
A. Yes! This book was published back in 2006 but the story's theme is filled with heritage.
      The author's background influenced her writing so that authenticity and her unique perspective
      were apparent throughout. Enjoyed the way she entertwined the spiritual perspective. It was  
      real. and not overt. This was a story of hope, faith and trust in God till the end.

Lines that stood out:
Page 306  (Told by Armentia)

"It was like I rested my head on the Breath Giver's shoulder, like He held me on his lap."

Take Away Scripture  Deuteronomy 6:4-11

4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
5And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
10And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,
11And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full; (Retrieved from BibleGateway.com)
