Heb 11. 6

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

“Faith may see difficulties but it does not magnify them…Faith may be sore tempted but it does not yield to discouragement…faith obeys…real faith obeys when there is no sign.”

Left leaning politicians keep bringing up “aliens” referring not to those who cross national borders but to “something” out of the sky. Surprisingly enough, they mention these with a straight face. They’re trying to believe humans came from aliens or some other “planet” and seem to be trying make us fear, even worship, these “creatures.” If you aren’t a believer in the Holy Scriptures you need to be (& can be 🙂 ). God has promised there will be signs and He’s in charge of the firmament. If some “being” appears, do not fear and do not worship. “…Worship the Lord thy God and him only shalt thou serve” (Mar 4.10).

Little bits of snowy snow

Fly through the air cavorting so,

We enjoy their final flight,

Love to see them lightly light.

It’s hard to describe such flakes

That God so easily makes.

About ’52 I saw my first “estate.”

Dad was a welder; a fellow welder, Emil, was a caretaker for 2000 acre “Snortin’ Ridge.” The owner (understood he invented refrigerated RR cars) was gone and Emil gave us a tour. The house (have no idea of sq.ft.) was at the brow of a ridge viewing a lake many feet below and maybe .25 mi. away where deer were seen (deer were then rare in OH). Also outside I saw my first 4-5 car garage, a swimming pool, a dog burial plot in addition to equipment like a caterpillar. Inside, the house had a wall of worm-eaten chestnut, a freezer big enough to drive a car into, and a record player (probably 78s) which held scores of records and played them automatically. For a farm lad this was a mansion! Jesus famously said, “In my Father’s house are many mansions…I go to prepare a place for you” (Joh 14.2). I did not begrudge the owner his estate (nor should you). I live however, with the hope of a heavenly home that’ll make “Snortin’ Ridge” pale.

Come, let us, by His grace, be neighbors in Paradise.
