Calendars, as previewed

January's butterfly calendar has a portrait of a Brimstone.  Here we see the exquisite work of our Grand Creator, Jehovah of armies.  And also the work of an excellent photographer, in Captain Butterfly himself.

Had I taken that photo, my thumb or the lens cap would have featured strongly and the butterfly would have been missing its head.

The 2013 Jehovah's Witness calendar for January and February says this:

""To him there were given rulership and dignity and kingdom" - Daniel 7:14

During Jesus Christ's 1,000 year reign, he will undo all the harm caused by the Devil. At the same time, Jesus will ensure that the entire earth is transformed into a paradise home for his human subjects. - Luke 23:43

For family discussion:
Name some of  "the works of the devil" that the Son of God will break up. (1 John 3:8)  What Kingdom blessings do you look forward to?"

The works of the devil. It was Satan who brought death into the world when he persuaded our first parents to cut themselves off from their Creator, their Source of life.  So, as the Bible promises, once the works of the devil are broken up,  "death will be no more".  And, therefore, I look forward so much to seeing my parents again, as the resurrection of the dead progresses.  And my granny.  I never thanked her for the wonderful world of Nabbs Cottage.

The Bible tells us that "many of those asleep in the ground of dust will wake up" - and that there will be a resurrection of both "the righteous and the unrighteous".

And I long for the time when nature is no longer "red in tooth and claw with ravine" - when all the earthly creation is at peace, as it was in the Garden of Eden.
