It’s Mah Burthday… It’s Mah Burthday!


Hi – lovewillbringustogether’s weblog here. I’ve noticed a few other blogs have been getting out and having a little fun away from their owners.

Well today is a very special one for me so i thought i’d do the same!

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! I’m ONE year old TODAY! Yaayy. 🙂

I’m having a party and all blogs are invited (you can even bring your owners- They can chat in the kitchen!)

AND TODAY MISS MANDY T (Just a Girl) TURNS 30 – THREE OH! ( OH! 😦 OH! 😦 OH! 😦 ) So make CERTAIN you all go and take over her blog wish her a happy one! 😉

There’s gonna be fun and games and, naturally, a big Chocolate cake.. well, Probably a Black Forrest Cake since they’re our favourite! Mmmmmm.

There will even be a gluten-free, non-lactose version for those poor people who can’t eat real food!
Love wants EVERYONE to enjoy themselves 🙂

To kick things off i made up a ‘game’ for you all to join in with.

As fun as the Bible can be to read 😯 there’s an AWFUL lot to keep in our Hearts and it often gets confusing for first time readers (and even long time readers!) so…

You have to write out your ‘Bible’. In ten sentences!!!

What are the ten things that are the MOST important parts of His Word you want to keep with you your entire life and want others to ‘know’ is what the Bible is telling you most strongly.

This game is a quite serious one so feel free to take your time – and get your blog’s help if you’re having difficulty. 🙂

You can post them in the comments here or up on your own blogs, But me and love (love and i??) REALLY want to know.

I’m putting mine up in my next post… after i finish this slice of Cake! 🙂

OK here’s the link – it’s published further down! – /loves-bare-bones-bible/

Happy BlogBirthday Everyone! – Enjoy! 😀



  1. one year olds pick their noses, their booties, and often smear….never mind. just make sure you keep a close eye on this youngun. it could get out of control around here!

    i want cake.


  2. You have me so confused!!!

    It’s your blog birthday???

    Really? I thought you’d been blogging a lot longer than just a year. You seem so…old…at it!! 😆

    Happy Blogiversary!

    Love you.


  3. You are SO creative! happy BURFDAY

    Ok…. my bible in ten (phrases)

    1) do unto others
    2) Eph 4:29
    3) For God so loved…
    4) in the beginning
    5) Why so downcast oh my soul?

    Ok. I’ve gotta think about the rest.


  4. Happy blog birthday Love.

    I no longer read the bible but from what I remember:

    1. Do not do unto to others what you would not have them do unto you. (The Golden Rule found in all the holy text I know of.)

    2. Pick any nine other passages that teach us to have compassion and love for our neighbors.

    I was just watching a lecture by religious scholar Karen Armstrong. She told the story of a Jewish Rabbi who encountered a pagan. The pagan said he would convert if the Rabbi could recite the whole of Jewish teaching while standing on one leg. The Rabbi stood on leg and said. “That which is hateful to you do not do to your neighbor. That is the Torah, the rest is commentary, go read it.”


  5. Mandy! stop using Michelle’s identity to leave comments! 😉 ‘Old’??

    If i was not your OLDer bro i would spank you, Young lady! 🙂

    THIS blog turns one – i never said i was a one-blog man! 😳

    Mo – WOO-WOO! there’s a party going on right here, a celebration (with Mandy Mac) to last throughout the Year… you got your dancin shoes on?? 🙂


  6. Mandy – Happy Burfday Hun!! 🙂 and ty for playing along, and for all you DO and have given us all – it is not forgotten. 🙂

    Ed – thank you very muchly 🙂

    Interesting story of the Rabbi on one leg 🙂

    If the story has any truth in it how can the people of Israel allow what they do to the former owners of that land to happen today? Two wrongs don’t make anything right.

    How can the people of America allow the massive tax funding of their money keep continually being sent to perpetuate the injustices over there?

    Peace is long overdue – it will not come without justice for all, not just the Israeli’s. Paying $2 Billion a year to Egypt and Jordan to counteract some of the massive defence funding Israel receives from the US taxpayer every year is not ‘justice’. Nor is it bringing Peace.

    Personally i think the story about the Rabbi is perhaps Apocryphal, at least i hope it is because i would HOPE the story of the Torah had at least some reference to GOD and not just to us humans on this planet. He is the Key to all religion, not us. Most people don’t quite GET that and make God all about us instead of vice versa. That’s why i believe so much of religion goes wrong – it’s not the religion, it’s human nature.

    it’s just like mathematics… you don’t see how rubbish so many people are at mathematical practice and conclude that Maths is ‘bad’ because we are so bad at doing it correctly.

    Yet so many of us are very happy doing just that for religion, blaming it for the sickness of Humanity as a whole.

    God is perfect – and more! We are not – it’s time we all began learning from Him – at least that is the conclusion my life has led me to at this age.

    Of course, the trouble really is… mankind learns LESS than ‘perfectly’.

    No-one ever gets it ALL right – except perhaps this one guy 2000 years ago?

    If i might ‘correct’ you Sir ( respectfully of course) the quote you gave of ‘doing’… you may have remembered it correctly from what you read however…whoever wrote it got it wrong.

    Mat 7:12 and Luke 6:21 are the verses of the Bible that contain the wisdom you are relating and the word ‘NOT’ (a negative) is ‘not’ used in either of them. The word DO (a positive) is.

    “Whatsoever you would that others should do to you, do so to them”

    And even something as simple as this we humans stuff up! BIG TIME.

    It is our selfish human nature that does it every time, not religion.

    Sme of very poor understanding read that and think – Great! i want someone to make me a christian so i’ll make them a Christian – WRONG!

    What is that case here is ‘i want the freedom to be someone who is allowed to come to the God of my Choice – who speaks to me personally and not be forced into following someone else’s choice of a God for me, therefore, i should allow all others that same freedom.

    I can happily live my life as a Christian and if that leads me to demonstrate something others would like for themselves they are free to engage me to find out more about my God and choose Him for themselves if they wish.

    This is a correct application of that ‘Commandment’ of Christ.

    Whatever you would have them do to you – do so to them – but see the Truth of what you do and what you want. Unbiasedly!


  7. Looking up “The Golden Rule” in wikipedia”

    “A key element of the golden rule is that a person attempting to live by this rule treats all people, not just members of his or her in-group with consideration.”

    Ancient Greek – Isocrates – “Do not do to others what would anger you if done to you by others.”

    Dalai Lama – “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”

    Baha’i Faith – “Ascribe not to any soul that which thou wouldst not have ascribed to thee, and say not that which thou doest not.”

    Confucius – “Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself.”

    Hindu Mahabharata – “That man who regards all creatures as his own self, and behaves towards them as towards his own self, laying aside the rod of chastisement and completely subjugating his wrath, succeeds in attaining to happiness.”

    Islam – Prophet Muhammad – “Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you.”

    It appears all the world faiths have the same wisdom. Words we can all read, but which so few of us live by.

    In my last blog post I asked, “Do we need any other moral law, or rule of behavior, other than acting with compassion towards our neighbors, and following the Golden Rule?”
