Well, the blog post I had hoped to post today had to be postponed after a spur-of-the-moment completely unexpected call from my dentist which left me without 1 of my 2 wisdom teeth. Yes, I had my wisdom tooth pulled today! :-| And being me [I tend to make everything a bit harder than it needs to be for the people around me ;] my dentist proclaimed, “that was a tough one!” But thankfully my Dad came along to hold my hand when necessary[I don’t do well with pain;], my dentist did a fantastic job, and[thank the LORD] the tooth is successfully out. Lord willing, I will recover and post the aforementioned blog-post but until the throbbing pain subsides[hopefully in the next 24 hours as I do have work to do], you will find me under half a dozen blankets, in my fuzzy socks, and an over-sized sweater being tended to by a dozen extremely sensitive siblings and 2 parents[thank you :]! For now I want to share what the Lord blessed me with today 2 PETER 3:
3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
May the Lord richly bless you through His Word today! He promises it will not return void. :]
