So what about Jesus’ family?

  1. Here in the Urbanova congregation this is the month of the family, for our messages. Last Sunday, on that first couple to be created. Today, the roles of husband and wife.

  2. So that people don’t freak out, on the 23rd, we’ll talk about Jesus’ physical family. What should I say about them?

  3. Much font search and experimentation today. That ought to do me for the rest of the year.

  4. What is our life but a vapor, but a vain attempt to drive down a stake to hold us here, when every connection to earth will soon be broken?

  5. Heaven and earth and hell are in the hands of God, and every creature, man himself and all his plans and dreams.

  6. An original verse: The name of man and all his fine devices / Avail him nothing, neither his sacrifices.

  7. A Bible verse: “Then I confessed my sin; I no longer covered up my wrongdoing. I said, ‘I will confess my rebellious acts to the Lord.’ And then you forgave my sins” Psa 32.5.

Bees

This entry is from the dictionary of the 1947 Dickson Bible, my grandmother’s copy, and it reminded me of a friend:

Bee. Canaan, a land flowing with milk and honey, would denote that bees were numerous (Ex. 3.8; Ezek. 27.7). They lived in rocks and woods (Ps. 81.16; 1 Sam. 24.25; Ezek. 27.17). Their activities are described (Deut. 1.44; Ps. 118.12; Isa. 7.18).

Over the many Christmas seasons

Here’s the tag for Christmas on my blog. See what got wrote and pics posted over the past few years. Am I Scrooge or what?

No Scrooge here — I like the tree and presents,
The table of food, and family, the tender feeling,
Reminders of divine and daily blessing,
The words of friends, and time for thought and healing.

Out and about at night

After getting home from CrossFit, drinking my veggie protein shake, and taking a shower, I walked down to the swim school and watched the grandkids splash. Joel and I chatted. Afterwards, I walked them to their apartment building. Stopped on the way back at Dona Lina and bought some bread and sweets, then popped in at my neighbor’s workout gym and visited with him. He and I are studying the Word together, next time will be tomorrow afternoon. Then back home for some iced (Earl Grey) tea and that fresh bread.

Wife knew man who shot and killed himself…

Wife knew man who shot and killed himself in Iuka MS hospital on Sat., where her mother was in the hospital at the time. He had worked with her mother when wife was young girl. (But there was no recent connection between them.) Wife was deeply saddened by the news.
