I know a person doesn't need to paint weathered, peeling surfaces
or wash mil-dewy soffits or snip-trim-edge-scrub-a-dub-dub,
but when preparing to host A Big Event it does give one the motivation
to blow the dust off an ever-growing should-do list and git-er-done!
What is the Big Event, you wonder? Jim's mom's 89th birthday!
(So the families I do childcare for were gracious and found alternative childcare this week )
We gladly go a lot of extra miles and pay attention to details
we otherwise would not when prepping for An Event.
Then amidst merry chatter and laughter and "long-time-no-see!"
(many not since Christmas because of Covid-19) the event passes.
There is a Very Big Event of Great Importance impending...which will never pass!!
How are we preparing for That Day?!
Blow the trumpet in Zion;
sound the alarm on my holy hill.
Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand—
"Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven.
And then all the
peoples of the earth will mourn
when they see the Son of Man coming
the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.
An oldie but as relevant as ever!!!
Nearer and ever nearer draws that great and glorious day
When then at last the burdens of love’s laws are borne
In power and great glory on the clouds He will appear
And the whole world will mourn in awe and holy, holy fear
Nearer and ever nearer draws that dark and dreadful Day
When all who have not yet believed behold too late, too
