The not so good news is that the doctor was pretty negative re my getting very much more movement back - and I am still quite limited.
Captain B is being very positive and will keep me at the physio, to see what can be done. And he took me to the Arun View for lunch to cheer me up - fish and chips with a gin and tonic.
Thank Goodness it is the Memorial tomorrow- a beacon of hope in the darkness. And with that in mind I will now look at and blog today's Memorial Bible reading, in the hope that it will be so encouraging for anyone who might be reading this blog.
(Mark 14:1, 2) "Now the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread was two days later. And the chief priests and the scribes were looking for a way to seize him by cunning and kill him; for they were saying: “Not at the festival; perhaps there might be an uproar of the people.”"
(Mark 14:10, 11) "And Judas Is·carʹi·ot, one of the Twelve, went off to the chief priests in order to betray him to them. When they heard it, they were delighted and promised to give him silver money. So he began seeking an opportunity to betray him."
(Matthew 26:1-5) Now when Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples: “You know that two days from now the Passover takes place, and the Son of man will be handed over to be executed on the stake.” Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the courtyard of the high priest, who was named Caʹia·phas, and they conspired together to seize Jesus by cunning and to kill him. However, they were saying: “Not at the festival, so that there may not be an uproar among the people.”"
(Matthew 26:14-16) "Then one of the Twelve, the one called Judas Is·carʹi·ot, went to the chief priests and said: “What will you give me to betray him to you?” They stipulated to him 30 silver pieces. So from then on, he kept looking for a good opportunity to betray him."
Tomorrow after sunset it will be Nisan 14, the day of the Passover, and the congregations worldwide will be Memorialising Jesus' sacrificial death. One of the many things I will be feeling so grateful for is the way Jesus healed people when he was on the earth, showing what he can and will do when he is ruling over the earth as the King of Jehovah's Kingdom. That Kingdom will restore the link so fatally broken in Eden, and restore faithful mankind to perfection and the earth to the Paradise it was always meant to be.
