This blog post is a sort of thanks too I hope.
If I am on the earth a million years from now, as I hope to be, I will never have seen another sunrise exactly like this one.
Colin and Butterfly Mark are off to an Insect Exhibition today, and I must get back to the dusting, tidying and polishing as we have a visitor from Expatworld next week.
We had a wonderful evening with Jackie last night. She has had some very good news. She is about to become a granny for the 8th time! And she becomes a great granny for the second time very soon. She cooked us a roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings, including crispy roast potatoes. And we had choc ices for dessert.
The beautiful colours of the morning have reminded me of that lovely passage in Proverbs chapter 8 where Jesus speaks directly to us. “Jehovah himself produced me as the beginning of his way, the earliest of his achievements of long ago. From time indefinite I was installed, from the start, from times earlier than the earth." He is God's only-begotten son, the only one created by Jehovah alone. Everything else was created by Jehovah with Jesus working beside him as a master worker. Jesus says: "then I came to be beside him as a master worker, and I came to be the one he was specially fond of day by day, I being glad before him all the time, being glad at the productive land of his earth, and the things I was fond of were with the sons of men."
He loved, and loves, his Father's creation. The beautiful earth, floating like a jewel in space. And he loves us too. So,as Proverbs goes on tell us: "Happy is the man that is listening to me by keeping awake at my doors day by day, by watching at the posts of my entrances. For the one finding me will certainly find life, and gets goodwill from Jehovah."
As we go door to door, with our Bibles (not that I can at the moment, sadly), we are trying to get people to listen and to find life and to get goodwill from Jehovah.
There has just been a lovely lovely sunset, to end the day.
