Trivia:

Well, you had some great guesses about the place where Christmas comes before Thanksgiving. However, the definite place that this happens is in the dictionary. Way to go everyone.


By the way, Do you know what the strawberry said when he was given a gift? Yep, you got it, Thank you berry much.


Challenge:

Ecclesiastes 12:5c Remember Him before you near the grave, your everlasting home, when the mourners will weep at your funeral."


In this third piece of this verse the writer attempts to remind us of that final end that comes to all things. This is our reminder of that inevitable fact and to ignore that will cause us to live our lives only thinking of the present because of our desire to ignore that truth. We are being reminded of the importance of living in the eternal realm.


We call that our legacy, and only as we live with those thoughts in mind are we moved beyond living only for the present of this life. Since the future is such a vital part of our life, (eternity) we must not forget our soulish life. Our fellowship with our loving Father, and His place that we have been promised with Him and His family.


Our world today only considers the present life with only a brief thought of eternity when they are forced to consider the eternal, most times only when some one dear to them crosses that time. When they face that fact, because they have spent so little time considering the eternal element of their life fear, and mourning are the only pieces in these thoughts.


The prophet Isaiah reminds of this wonderful promise in Isa. 41:10 "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with my righteous right hand."


SO GO WITH GOD my dear one for he never lets go of us. He promises to be with us, to strengthen us, help us, and to hold us in His perfect loving presence. In 1 Peter 5:6 He has promised to exalt us at the proper time, in eternity. Rest in these promises my dear child, for He has our lives in His warm, strong, caring hand, and will never let go.


If you have a few minutes listen to You tube of the song "What a day that will be" -gaither band - Rick E. I will never forget the few lucid words I enjoyed with Dad as I left him to go back to California. We had sung this song, and he as it were gazed into heavens gates and spoke of the joys he knew would be his when stepping into heaven.


He had a triumphant look on his face and anticipation was in his eyes, then all the sudden he was taken back from that thought. I had witnessed that time of rejoicing many times as we served the Lord as a family, As we got in the car to travel home after an intense day of service. Oh, What a day that will be with our Lord and all of His family. Don't lose sight of that time in the future.For that will give clarity of purpose for the times of turbulence in our present day.
