My Butterfly, My Little Bird & Proverbs.

My very talented friend, Bronwyn, popped in to have some tea wine with me this afternoon. It’s been a while since we just got to hang out and chat and of course she came armed with her camera and snapped this beautiful image of my gorgeous girls:

Given that Paul, from HandStyle Custom Tattoo’s, who did my latest ink, is a very close friend of Bronwyn’s, she also snapped a few gorgeous shots of my tattoo, now that it’s all healed and not swollen, red and scabby, so here it is for those of you who have been asking to see:

I really love this piece, but I really really want to have another tattoo…. a bit of text fromProverbs 31:25:

She is clothed in strength & dignity & she laughs without fear of the future!

    Good pics. I like your skin art & that Proverbs portion is just beautiful in so many ways. Please post a pic of that when you get it done. Your girls are just edible!

    I’ve changed the name I use to comment because we found out a week ago that our adoption of our daughter has been signed off at last! Over 2 & a half years after she came home to us. We are thrilled!

    “‘Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:28 NIV ….just saying … saying that, your tattoo is STUNNING but I feel engraving your body with bible verses is not a good idea.

      Thank you for your comment. Just a quick question? Are your ears pierced? As I do believe this bible verse is in reference to both tattoos and piercings.

    Erm. If you believe anything in the bible you clearly haven’t played broken telephone. Yes because a text ‘supposedly’ written by god, would survive intact millions of years, countless translations and language barriers later. For all we know it says we should be gay and tattooed and kill virgins (oh hang on.. never mind that last one..)

    I’m NOT starting a religious war, BUT, I did happen upon this e-mail…

    “On her radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, penned by a US resident, which was posted on the Internet.

    It’s funny, as well as informative:

    Dear Dr. Laura:

    Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination.. End of debate.

    I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God’s Laws and how to follow them.

    1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?

    2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

    3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offence.

    4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord – Lev.1:9. The problem is, my neighbours. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

    5. I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath.Exodus 35:2. clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

    6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination – Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this? Are there ‘degrees’ of abomination?

    7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle- room here?

    8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

    9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

    10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16.Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

    I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.

    Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.

    Your adoring fan.

    Oooweee, this is why I do not get involved in religious debates. I don’t know enough to comment! Sharon, as I said to you, I love your tattoo and one day if I ever get inked again, I am totally stealing that Proverbs verse!! Love it! xx
