Sometimes I get tired flipping through things when I know where a verse is -I end up reading everything and anything inbetween.
you sound so much like me sandra..I wish i could stamp the chapter ,and vrses of everything from the bible into my head...some have that great gift
using the storage files of their brains,to automatically remember whwere q uote is from the bible.
I've heard of people that you can just refer to any number of verses in their "numerical reference",and they can pull that verse out of their head,and tell you what it is...(maybe its focus ,and perserverence.).(sighs)
I sure wish i had that kind of memory,and I totally get distracted by other "interesting" info when I do start trying to reseach something,so I understand the point you make in the above quote very well.
But you still manage to learn through it,as well as make available what you felt you have read,and understood it to be.
I presonally enjoy what you bring to the table in "spirituality " sandra...and though I might most definately disagree with you on some points you make....I love that you are willing to share..and accept others for where they are at.
sorry to mess up this thread,if content is off topic, but just wanted to say that....
Sandra..I would love to know if you know of any teachings or native legends on the "talking stick" I mentioned in another thread as well
I feel you would be the one here with that kind of knowledge,considering it is an old "native" custom,that worked very well for "council" meetings,and such.
