“…rejoice with the wife of thy youth.” [[ Bryans were married at 18 ]]

 

‘Tis Anniversary Week * #6 (last in series). When a happily married man & wife finish 15 yrs they’re glad & want more time together. When they mark 20, they may say, “Let’s do another 20.” J At the big silver anniversary they look ahead to making it 50 yrs. Even at 30 yrs they may dream of another 30 (as God wills). We are at 57. Reality says there will not be another 57. Life has slowed down. Retirement is being enjoyed. Now it’s time to relish each year – make that month? Week? No. Find pleasure in each day & count your blessings, yes, the little ones. I wish my wife a Happy, Happy, Happy 57th. – eab, June 18

 

“Carnal nature is the perversion of the human nature.”

– Phillip Dickinson, sermon, 10/12/03

 

* TRINITY * (12.)

Heb 9.14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge…

 

 

we’ve been “we”

It seems incredible – can it be?

We’re married 50 years, you and me?

Let’s check the calendar and see.

Math seems right, down to the “T.”

Once single she, once only he,

Now a long time, we’ve been “we.”

Luk 16.23a & 24b

“And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments…

“…send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.”

 

“I hope So-n-So burns in hell!” No sinner should say that; no saint does. It is a very wicked wish & a very ignorant statement. Anyone wanting someone else to go to hell has a super evil heart themselves. And it shows an extremely shallow understanding of the torments. “Flames” “No water” “Memory” “No escape.” I would not wish the last dog that bit me (in Phoenix), to go to hell, let-alone-a-human. – eab, 6/28/18

 

“…Free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing

that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having.”

– C S Lewis, /Mere Christianity/

 

Why adult fascination with “Make Believe”? Don’t be offended – my question is serious. This post isn’t intended to hurt (I hope it awakens). Adults waste millions of dollars & misuse millions of hours watching movies they *know* aren’t real. Why? They travel miles & pay big bucks to see: false walls, plastic trees, styrofoam castles, fabrications, & things hollow (structure & meaning). Why? There’s a place (I “hear”) called “Magic Kingdom.” Why are adults intrigued by unreal – God has untold realities for us?
