The world as we know it is slowly passing away, so please enjoy this world while you can. Enjoy the trees and the flowers and the moon and the sun, the seas, the green grass, and all the beautiful things that God has given us. Did not he make the earth so plentiful and so beautiful? Did not he make the earth for our habitation? Even though he created us last, he knew that we would be last and he knew he was creating this earth especially for us. For he knew all things first, before we were, He was!
Enjoy God, relax and enjoy the freedom of being born mortal. I love it. Iím watching the snow slowly drift down outside my bedroom window this morning. They are little tiny flakes like fluffy cotton. Itís a March snow and the March winds are slowly moving the little tiny flakes all over and everywhere before they hit the ground. Right now Iím watching the sun slowly emerging from the sky. Can you believe all this is happening this morning in Indiana? The sun is shinning, itís snowing and the wind is kicking a tiny piece of white paper around in my March garden. The iris and the tulips are all two inches tall, the snow is bouncing around on the tiny little heads, but believe you me, they have no fear; they are alive in Maryís garden. They are smiling and rejoicing because itís almost their turn to shine in the sun.
Iím rejoicing this morning because I have been adopted by the great I AM. He bought and paid for me with the blood of his son Jesus and I have seen favor in his sight. He is my best friend and I am His childÖ I have not finished my course, he loves me so much, and I have not yet begun to fight.
I have grabbed hold of a brand new sword. My old one had rust on it and had almost been laid to rest, but then He sent the gentle shepherd and rescued me..Praise God
My name is written in the Lambs book of life I am his child and he is my Father.
29 But this I say, brethren, the time has been shortened, so that from now on those who have wives should be as though they had none; 30 and those who weep, as though they did not weep; and those who rejoice, as though they did not rejoice; and those who buy, as though they did not possess; 31 and those who use the world, as though they did not make full use of it; for the form of this world is passing away
