The "E"s have it!

Eli, Elijah, Elisha, Ephraim, Esther, Ezra, ,Elizabeth,  Ehud, Ezekiel, and Emily. Too many "e"s. don't know which one to pick... It's 9:53. I just got home. I think that this is my mulligan day. What's a mulligan? From what I understand, it's a golf term that means you get to take a shot over again.
You guys could just tell me which one you want to learn more about.
Eli- Fat priest with ungodly sons... raised Samuel, who was one of the best.
Elijah- Fabulous prophet. Did lots of miracles, mentored Elisha.
Elisha- Asked for a double portion of Elijah's power. Did some really strange miracles.
Ephraim- Son of Joseph, brother to Mannaseh
Esther- One of my favorite people in the whole Bible. "For such a time as this, she was born."
Ezra- Was in charge of rebuilding the temple.
Elizabeth- Mother to John the Baptist, cousin to Mary who was the mother of Jesus.
Ehud- Great Judge of Israel, who killed a fat king (already wrote about this one though.)
Ezekiel- Don't ask me about him. I'll have to do too much research.

Okay, so, it's up to you!

I'm partial to Eli (as you know it's my son's name), but I'd like more about Elizabeth.

E names are so beautiful. I especially like Elijah.

Rose said...

Yes, there are a lot of E's. How about Eve, Enoch, or Esau? I like Enoch.

Rose, I LOVE Enoch too. See why it was so difficult to choose?!
