Another grey, windy, rainy, unseasonably cool day here. Weathercasters tell us we may see some snowflakes tomorrow evening and perhaps Monday evening as well. Read that again...SNOW! In MAY! Can we take the "warmists" out back and beat them with sticks? Please?? So our "high" for the day is predicted to hit all of 46°. We are now about half nearing the mid-point of the Spring season, and looking at potential snow and "highs" in the low-to-mid-40's. Little Ice Age beginning?
Wife's having a not-too-great-but-not-too-terrible day. I'm feeling a little bit better than I did the last few days. A bit. Not great, not willing to leap tall buildings, but a bit. One of those times when you really want to go DO something, but just can't. Frustrating, but I deal with that quite often. Circumstances always seem to intrude. Reality does that, sometimes.
But we shall persevere.
The Old Testament passage here is chapters 12 and 13 of 1st Kings. David is gone. Solomon is gone as well. But their failures are still there, and have grown and metastasized. Now things are going to get real bad, and it won't change any time soon either.
I Kings 13
Our New Testament passage today is verses 36-53 of Luke chapter 24. This concludes the scheduled readings in the Gospel of Luke for the year. Yet it is a passage that merits frequent re=reading. This is their final earthly time with the resurrected Jesus. I imagine that in future times, when trouble appeared and the temptation to be discouraged came upon them, as it does on all, they had this memory to reassure them that no matter what, He was still with them and always would be. As He is with His children even today.
