Genesis 10:1-32 Start of Nations

The chart I purchased from Amazing Bible Timeline. Genealogy of the bible. Link provided below.

We have come to another portion of genealogy. In today’s family tree we will see many nations begin. It is importance for tracing Jesus’ lineage.

I’m wondering where they came up with their baby names. I doubt they had a book, like we do, with baby names to try out during pregnancy. I wonder if some of these names were repeats from before the flood. We already saw how some of the names were so close to the spelling of another. I also noticed that both Seth and Cain had an Enoch.

There are several nations named in the lines of these three brothers. I recognize more in Ham’s line than anyone else’s. That doesn’t mean he had the majority just that my geography skills are lacking. I’m simply going to list the ones I recognize. From Japheth’s line I recognize Gomer and Magog. I also recognize Tarshish and Kittim.  From Ham’s line I recognize all of his sons; Cush, Egypt, Put and Canaan. Nations from their descendants that I also recognize are Dedan, and Sidon. The list of peoples following Heth I recognize but I’m not sure if these were names of Canaan’s sons or some of the nations that sprang out of them. The Jebusites, Amorite, and Hivites are peoples I recognize as being in Read more »

Yes! We are back!!

SO glad everyone came along for the ride!

I’m back to writing again! My site had to have a major move happen and I wasn’t able to write for about a week. I’m happy to say all went well and we are back on our journey again. Thank you GoDaddy team for making it all happen!

I Found It!

I love a good plausible backstory

When we looked at Lazarus and Mary, his sister, story I wanted to share a book with you that I had read. It is a fictional account of Lazarus and his family before and after his resurrection. I love reading biblical fiction as they provide the possible backstory I so long to know. This one is called “Jesus Wept” and is book one in the Jerusalem Chronicles series.

I couldn’t remember the post where I mentioned this book and had searched for it unsuccessfully. While looking again for some of my “favorite books” I found it today and had to share. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Have really missed our time together

Hi all,

Just wanted to drop a quick note tonight and say I’m sorry for not posting for the last week. I had house guests while my house was being worked on. I didn’t have any quiet time to sit and write. Tonight is a wash because of traveling all day. I will be back tomorrow to pick up where we left off. Thank you for your faithfulness. Sorry mine slipped for so long. 🙂

It’s been a busy summer!

I wanted to start off by apologizing for being so sporadic in my posting this summer. I have 5 grandchildren that I get to offer care for during the summer. Sometimes it is a few hours a day and sometimes it is a weekend or even a whole week. I love writing when they are here because I can speak into their lives during the discussions it brings up but I can’t hear myself think when they are all here lately. I also get distracted by the programs they have going or the games they are playing instead of writing. Everyone is back in school this week and even the granddaughter I watch the most starts this year, so I will have a lot more quiet time. A VERY mixed blessing there. I plan to get right back on track now.

Two weekends ago we had our annual camp for the grandkids! I was SO glad that almost all of them came. We were only lacking one and it was due to distance and age. He is only 4 months old so wouldn’t be participating much and they live on the other side of the US from us. Looking forward to them joining in once they are done in the military. We had a GREAT time with the 8 who could attend and their parents. Can’t wait to see what next year holds for this amazing group!

Camp NaPa campers!
