Still chaos here as we extend our painting into the living areas.
…and I’ve been escaping by doing a bit of painting of my own.
Although it’s rather cold for this sort of thing at the moment.
Well the drastic kitchen deed has started, those dreadful high cupboards ripped out, and for a little while, a huge hole in the wall. Our house is definitely open plan right now. And look what we discovered under the plaster-board – tongue and groove boards, they’re in the ceiling as well! Unfortunately they will remain covered for now as I have lost the vote. But at least I know they are there…
My widowed sister’s little companion dog has just died. She is lonely and grieving – and I am too far away to hug her…
worrying our hearts
with soft paws
stamping their footprints
across our lives
A word from a dear old man of God…
In Numbers 20:24 we have one of the lovely pictures that the Bible uses when it speaks of the death of believers. Unlike the New Testament, in which we read that believers ‘fall asleep’, or are ‘taken to Abraham’s side’, here, as elsewhere in the Old Testament, Aaron is ‘gathered to his people’. [The same is said of Abraham, aged 175 years, in Genesis 25:8.] What a beautiful picture! The Christian’s ultimate family is the people of God. These people are our brothers and sisters, some of whom are found on earth, others already in glory. The longer we live, the more we will find that we know more of the family in heaven than here! Death will not separate us from our family, but gather us to them. We will be with Christ and with them! Be encouraged.
