Wendy McClure Quotes

"Sometimes, Laura World wasnt a realm of log cabins or prairies, it was a way of being. Really, a way of being happy.

Quotes About Grey Eyes

"I matched my grey eyes against his brown ones for guile, my young golf-and-tennis heart-beats against his, which must be slowing a little after years of over-work.

Quotes About Death Of Jesus

"Verse 12 [of Ex. 12) tells us that the judgment of Yahweh is not only on the Egyptians but also on their deities. This is probably an allusion to the fact that Egyptians would often pray for the safety of their firstborn, particularly firstborn sons, as was the custom in many ancient patriarchal cultures. The death of the firstborn would be seen as a sign of the anger or perhaps the impotence of their gods. This is worth pondering when it comes to the death of Jesus as Gods only begotten, or beloved, Son. Would Jesus contemporaries have assumed his death was a manifestation of Gods wrath? Probably so. In any event, Yahweh is showing his superiority over the spirits behind the pagan deities, and thus we should not overlook the supernatural struggle that is implied to be behind the contest of wills between Moses and Pharaoh." - Author: Ben Witherington III
