Farewell to a special lady

When she was 90, I think, she gave her apartment and moved into a ‘retirement’ center where she became the life of the third floor.

Surviving Judgment -Background passage Deut 30:6-8

The LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the hearts of your descendants, and you will love Him with all your heart and all your soul so that you will live. The LORD your God will put all these curses on your enemies who hate and persecute you. Then you will again obey Him and follow all His commands I am giving you today. HSCB

 

The one difficulty of coming to know Jesus at an early age is holding on to your childhood theology. It is easy to understand the basic concepts of God’s love and actions and our appropriate response. Jesus loves me and died for me. Many of God’s other mysteries like sanctification or propitiation, become words mashed into the easier understood concepts.

West Texas Sunset - November 1, 2011 11:42 PM

Driving towards Amarillo this afternoon, I watched the most amazing sunset. The wide Texas a panorama view. The sunlight was fading into a soft palette of color. Where the sun couldn't reach on the horizon was dark blue, not black. The day's sky was a crystal blue. High in they daylight sky, juxtaposed to the flocks of birds flying low, were several jet streams streaking across the sky. Just as darkness covered my journey deer were grazing on the side of the highway.

I can't recall ever being so aware of twilight. In my hotel room I looked up the dictionary definition of twilight. What I experienced was straight off the page, (screen in this instance,) these beautiful colors at the end of a successful day.
