On Our Passage to the Ultimate






Time’s heyday in gray garb of mist
Wakens a world cold-shower kissed
But we don’t really mind the rain
When it is near spring-time again
From Saturday to Saturday
Winter like life, soft-seeps away

…and Time, beneath the great command
Of He who weighs and pours its sand
Spills Saturday across earth’s brake
Where morning is a summer lake
And we, upon its week-washed banks
Linger to give God humble thanks

For we did not escape His care
And walls that last Heyday were bare
Are decked with sundry memories
Where Time is laid to rest in these
A week-to-week-to-week façade
That ultimately leads to God

It is good we cannot see

Into Time’s certain soon-will-be

But oh, that we may claim the peace

Of He whose care will never cease

Yes, it's good we don't know who will have the fender-bender when(last week), 


which day the roof will leak(the other day), 


or which day the puck-in-the-eye will send us to emerg. for half-a Saturday (a month ago) This is not as serious as it appears ...a 2cm cut needed a pressure band-aid because it wouldn't stop bleeding;-)



Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.





— John 14:27-28
 

Peace is Christ’s distinctive gift—not money, not worldly ease, not temporal prosperity. These are at best very questionable possessions. They often do more harm than good to the soul. They act as clogs and weights to our spiritual life. Inward peace of conscience, arising from a sense of pardoned sin and reconciliation with God, is a far greater blessing. This peace is the property of all believers, whether high or low, rich or poor.
— J. C. Ryle
 
Wishing your a Peace-full Saturday
