sadness of the day ...


"The whole point of Heaven is to relieve us of the suffering, pain, death and tears brought into the world by the evil of humanity. That is why God says that in Heaven there will be no more sorrow, pain, death or crying.----David Brandt Berg
"There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.--Job 3:17

Oh glad day when we leave sorrow and sin behind forever!....Hope you had a good day. Our area is going to recieve 1 to 3 inchs of snow. Its been pouring down rain the last 3 hours. I'm going to put the teapot on and make us some tea. We just got home and are glad to be here..smile.

That DAY will be so wonderful for us all, won't it? I think we need to hang on cause the ride seems to be getting rougher...which is to be expected as the Adversary sees his time left quickly evaporating. The tragedy today...it was Halocaust Day too...it keeps on happening in big and small ways, doesn't it? I often ponder the verse that tells us we will look at our Adversary someday and wonder that he and his helpers were able to do what they did, using humans! May we accomplish all the Father has for us to do, each and every day we are given! Blessings on you!

And to all of you. How very close evil is sometimes. I can't comprehend it, but the quote and the verse you have here are all I need to keep on and to be hopeful and to bring a message of hope to a world in despair. Let us never forget--GOD WINS! When He said, it is finished, the battle was actually over and Jesus IS Lord.

maggie ann ... i hope your day turned out cozy at the end ... and that it warms up soon!

elizabeth ... i hear that one of the people murdered was a holacaust survivor - more irony ... these kinds of evill are difficult to understand ...

antbk ... the thing that folks don't seem to understand is that no one is SAFE anywhere here on planet earth - physically we all die ... spiritually is another matter ... and i want my spirit to rest in heavenly realms! where Jesus IS Lord - amen ...

He will swallow up death in victory;
And the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces;
And the rebuke of His people shall he take away from off all the earth
For the LORD hath spoken it..Isaiah 25:8

I look with anticipation for that day when the wicked shall cease from troubleing, and we weary will rest in the arms of the savior. I admit I sometimes get tired, but I know that my eternal home will be so glorious - my mind can't even comprehend the glory we will behold. I want to be ready every moment of every day to meet my savior.
