Why is the title of the blog “The Ruminant Scribe”?

I have been asked about why I am taking the time to blog on The Ruminant Scribe.  And, oh by the way, “don’t you know that ruminant has to do with cows?”  Another person said that they did not think the idea of cow stomachs would be a good blog title.  Well, I don’t either.  But, I do think that ruminating is something that is important to do, especially in a society that wants information spoon fed to them, that wants to know stuff on an instant basis, and that does not necessarily care about the source, as long as what is said is received quickly and sounds good.

Bible (2)
God’s roadmap for our lives, steering us directly to Him — the Holy Bible.


My blog is intended to give me, and the reader, something to think about, to ruminate about.  The definitive text for the blog is the Holy Scripture, the Bible.  I am using an English Standard Version (ESV) but other versions will be used as well for comparison and, sometimes, for ease of understanding.

As far as “Scribe” is concerned, the scribes in Jesus’ day were the lawyers.  Since I am an attorney, a/k/a lawyer, it seemed appropriate that I could call  myself “scribe” in the blog title.   After all, even lawyers can ruminate, ponder and cogitate about thoughts regarding Scripture, life and our world!

The source of the subjects can seem to be mundane, such as blueberries coloring the breakfast milk blue, no matter how many or how few you use, but I try to tie it to a Biblical point.  See the post entitled “Blueberries for Christ.”  Or, the subject might be more clearly Scriptural, but there is still something about it that you and I need to think about.  See the post entitled “Praise the Lord”.

My prayer is that you will be blessed when you stop by The Ruminant Scribe, and just maybe that you will find something that was said to be thought-provoking, inspirational, or encouraging in your Christian walk.   If so, please send a comment or click the like star.  I will respond to comments as soon as possible.

Let me know if you agree, like or want to comment. Thanks. .
