Unrest, the Great American Eclipse and Tidbits

It’s hard to post without at least saying a word about the horrors that happened in Virginia last week. That word: evil. It’s that simple, as so many others have already stated. God, please help our nation, please bring Your peace, and, yes, please bring revival to save souls and heal our land.

Eclipse Time

We’re excited about the eclipse tomorrow. We live in Oregon and we’ll basically watch it from our driveway because we’re smack-dab in the middle of its path. Scripture suggests that such events can be harbingers of soon-to-occur events (see Joel 3:14-16; Matthew 24:29-31). Is this such a harbinger? I don’t know; no one knows. But if it is or isn’t, it can still point us to our glorious Creator!

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.”

-Psalm 19:1

There’s definitely science involved in the event, but there’s a whole lot more wonder. I’m looking forward to putting my funky glasses on and watching the awe unfold in the heavens. But please, make sure your glasses have the proper verification on them: ISO 12312-2. If they don’t have such designation, don’t risk it.

Tidbits

I took part of the summer off from blogging because of the loss of my youngest nephew. He was born with a serious disability and lived a courageous 31 years. As his oldest brother observed, he never gave up, his body just wore out. Now I trust he’s with the Lord and healed beyond our wildest imaginations! But please pray for healing for my sister and her family.

The last tidbit for this post is the post has been done entirely on my iPad. I didn’t think I’d like this gadget more than my Kindle, but alas, it’s great fun. Just as my bride promised me it would be. I may never use my Kindle again.
