Thanksgiving verse:

Isa 51.3

“For the LORD shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, THANKSGIVING, and the voice of melody.”

Unholy Church? !

An unholy church cannot prepare you

for the holiness of heaven.

I’ve been carried out with the quickness  

Of a youthful, “holy pride.”

And returned with a slower,

Wiser, more humble stride.

Time and again I’ve made the rounds;

Same airports, same roads, same old towns,

Back to the one familiar base;

I’m a missionary’s suitcase.

I’ve been clean and packed and shipped,

Amid happy voices and bright smiles

A daughter’s wedding waited

At the end of my miles.

I’ve also felt those hot full tears

As a parent ended his years;

It was all a part of my pace,

As a missionary’s suitcase.

I’ve ─ but wait, all good things must have an end,

Soon, so soon I will be

Carrying their things one final time

Across the sea.

Missionaries will leave behind,

Trunks and barrels of every kind

Up that Golden Staircase,

They will never need another suitcase.

– eab, Nov ‘91

Being with God


To love a human

is to want to be with them, to love to hear their voice, to want to see them and share time with them.

The same with God – we can be with God any day, everyday, all day! I can’t always be with my wife, my children, a close associate –

might get on their nerves if I were 😐 But God has such love for me that He can put up with me all day long.
