Giant Reptiles, Quotes and Scriptures...oh my!





It's time for PDT (Pleasantly Disturbed Thursday) hosted and funded by Duane Scott, fellow disturbed blogger and friend (Read more here)

Those who know me and those getting to know me...ummm, "know" that I love quotes.Perhaps lesser known is that I like to mix quotes with Scripture and see if I can make a connection. I've included a few in my post today, hoping you are disturbed enough to maybe offer one of your own. Come on, give it a go! OH, as for giant'll have to scroll to the end of the post to find out.
Peace, Jay

Love your blog.

Quotes have grown on me A LOT the past few years. At one time I wasn't real crazy about them, but now I'm a quote-a-holic. :)

Now if I could just get poetry to grow on me.
