Ok folks, so who wants me to water their camels!




Genesis 24:10-15 NKJV
[10] Then the servant took ten of his master's camels and departed, for all his
master's goods were in his hand. And he arose and went to Mesopotamia, to
the city of Nahor. [11] And he made his camels kneel down outside the city by a well
of water at evening time, the time when women go out to draw water.

[12] Then he said, "O LORD God of my master Abraham, please give me success
this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham. [13] Behold, here I stand
by the well of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out
to draw water. [14] Now let it be that the young woman to whom I say, 'Please
let down your pitcher that I may drink,' and she says, 'Drink, and I will also
give your camels a drink'-let her be the one You have appointed for Your servant Isaac.
And by this I will know that You have shown kindness to my master."

[15] And it happened, before he had finished speaking, that behold, Rebekah,
who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother,
came out with her pitcher on her shoulder.

I thought this was going to say, hit person over head with Bible, drag person to Pastor, marry them, drag home.

I was kinda thinking I'd wait til a celebration is winding down then ride in, grab a single lady, and cart her off into the sunset (Judges 21).

The Bible really has some wild ways in which people came to be married.

Instead of water the camels God asked me to Send the man a Bible you have so many.

Tourist had expressed that in his move from Maine he had left his Bible behind and so answering Gods prompting I sent him a Bible and the rest is history...... Working toward the third year of it....

I guess you could say that's a Biblical way to find a spouse.

It's quite simple:
1. Pray about it.
2. Accept no answer but God's.
3. If you're not mature enough to hear from God..... fergettaboutit..... you don't need one yet.:p

I suppose that is the equivalent of a nose ring. :D


Genesis 24:29-30 NKJV
[29] Now Rebekah had a brother whose name was Laban, and Laban
ran out to the man by the well. [30] So it came to pass, when he saw
the nose ring, and the bracelets on his sister's wrists, and when he
heard the words of his sister Rebekah, saying, "Thus the man spoke
to me," that he went to the man. And there he stood by the camels at the well.

If ya halfta hit him more than three times, he's not the one, cuz he's too hard-headed. Plus, that could get a little expensive.:p

Also, I'm thinking 3 times is just under, or right on the borderline of the legal limit for assault (be sure to check your county's legal regulations first before attempting.)

On the other hand, if the guy posts your bail, he definitely could be THE ONE!!!

(This is why I go to the gym, of course. So that when I finally meet THE ONE, I can keep hitting him across the head, as many times as it takes.)

The first book that I read was the Song of Solomon. It certainly inspired me.

Don't look at me, I'm broke. You'll have to bail yourself out Kim.

You're putting a major damper on our courtship process here, Lynx.

(You just gave me an idea for my next poll: "Ladies, Should You Have to Post Your Own Bail, or Should He Pay?")

I'm pretty sure they have me blacklisted, unfortunately.:(

It happened about the same time I was universally banned from all dating sites and services.

No worries, though!

I'm pretty confident it was just a coincidence. :cool:

Oh is THAT what happened? All we knew was the power went out and there were a lot of sirens going off in the distance.

Some day you'll have to tell us what really happened. After the statute of limitations has expired, of course.

Bingo! (I'm thinking this is going to be my new forum Catch Phrase, as I've been using it a lot lately.)

It could be a couple years before the truth actually comes out.

At least, that's what my legal team has advised me. ("1-800-JUS-TICE".)

I picked them because they have a frequent customer punch card.

What kind of wife could I get with some pocket lint, a mummified french fry, half a roll of breath mints, and a really grody looking dime?

I thought it was because they were 1-800-JUST-ICE and you wanted someone silenced. Y'know, iced.

I pad, yes! Like Jesus Lives mentioned a shotgun would help too.
