The first sentence captured my attention and I wanted to know Etty right away.
This story has strong characters, excellent relationships and a modern take on life today.
I'm gonna suggest Reading groups get copies right away and plan their Fall gatherings. "Etty Steele - Vampire Hunter" will inspire celebrations and costumes for years to come.
Number "1" on the spine promises plenty more "Etty Adventure" to come.
* Witches, Vampires and Fairies live in these pages and use British English.
(happy me, making new friends and reading their books.)
I'm participating in a conference today.
At the moment we are on lunch break.
There's taped interviews provided, in case we want to stay riveted.
Golly, this is Good.
My personal study continues.
I arrived here with Child-like Faith.
I had a foster father providing covering, security.
He loved me and "had my back."
He has gone ahead.
I felt orphaned for a while.
Now I realize it's time for me to "grow up."
"Mature in Faith."
(whatever that's gonna mean, hm?)
Last time I'd begun learning about covenant.
I moved to reading about blood.
(It's always been important - "door post and lintel" - gotta look into these things.)
Now I'm v-e-r-y slowly reading through Leviticus.
I'm not ready to share, but someday we'll "talk."
Maybe we'll begin with smaller/easier things - like "maggid."
I've witnessed remarkable healings.
I believe this is for us.
I've finally doubled back to brush up on Biblical Hebrew.
Seems, if i don't use it, it hides somewhere in my brain.
Okay, There's a new thing to make me laugh.
ya know, my first favorite "bible joke" was
"It is written 'it came to pass' - never 'it came to stay.' "
Okay, I've been spending time with Psalm 118. I have a few translations
(because, i DID tell you, I'm sifting through original language issues . . . giggle)
Some versions keep repeating "I cut them off."
Which reminds me of the entire season I "fired" a few people.
Ya know, when people continue to swarm around and mess with us . . .
(wave hands in the air for effect "You're Fired!" or . . "Cut Them Off")
Okay, I thought it was fun.
Bible jokes might not be your thing.
We've been given the two minute call to return to the conference.
see ya later.
I DO want to know what you're up to . . .
write, email, comment - when you have time.
love & love,
