The End

Today’s gospel Luke 21:20-28 reminds us once again that this life is only temporary and we are not for this world.

And I have to ask myself. Does it matter to me whether I know when the end is coming? Am I prepared for it?

-the end-

 

God’s Awesome Love #14

Dew and rain, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever.
Frost and chill, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever.
Ice and snow, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever.
Nights and days, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever.
Light and darkness, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever.
Lightnings and clouds, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever.
Let the earth bless the Lord, praise and exalt him above all forever.

Daniel 3: 68 – 74

Patent approved!

Having a clear view of our ultimate destination

One book I read said that having a clear view of the ultimate destination doesn’t have to keep one from enjoying the ride. In the same way, I think we should not forget our ultimate destination while enjoying the ride.  Enjoy what every day brings. Laugh. Run. Dance. Sing. But do not forget that every day, we are closer to the end of our ride. So let’s not take a detour. Let’s keep it straight. Forgive. Trust. Give.  Love.

May God bless our journey here on earth! And when the time comes that our journey will end, we may hear the Father himself applauding for our return.

Reflections In a Lake

Original post by Paulo Coelho.

Cain and Abel came to the banks of an enormous lake. They had never seen anything like it.
“There’s something inside it,” said Abel, looking into the water, not knowing that it was his reflection. Cain noticed the same thing, and raised his staff. The image did the same thing. Cain stood waiting for the blow; his image did the same. Abel studied the surface of the water. He smiled, and the image smiled. He laughed out loud, and saw the other imitating him. As they walked away, Cain thought:
“How aggressive those creatures are who live in there.”
And Abel told himself:
“I’d like to return, for I met someone both handsome and in good humor.”
