Day 139 of the Fruit Feast. i have been very active this past 7 days or so. i was especially active getting the final touches of our garden together. i put up an electric fence because around here, the deer will totally clean out a garden. We have so many of them that hang out in our yard, i tell my family we might as well name them like pets. i love animals and i am aware that its man intruding on their habitat that is causing them to be more public than they would like. But at the same time, i didn't put in all the effort and expense of a garden to feed the deer and rabbits. So i put up the fence and planted the garden. i pray all the effort pays off in a nice bounty of food. We planted watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, bell peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes and sweet potatoes (my wife's idea). i was so busy, that i only had time to work out 3 days this week (i usually do four workouts per week). So i had to do some extra push ups today to meet my weekly goal of 1400. Thank the Lord, i was able to do it in a timely manner. i will tell you that gardening with the shoveling, the pulling, the bending and all the movements, is very good exercise. i shoveled out rows and did raised beds. My legs definitely felt it afterwards and its a small garden (20x12). If i did a larger garden it would really be a workout!
This past week i spoke to my dad, my brother and my mom all on the same day. That is a rarity. Even more rare is all were actually pleasant conversations. Its sad that there is so much dysfunctionality in the world. Where so many families have so much anger and frustration. Its the result of the entrance of sin. But one day, i believe, there will be no more of that.
Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Revelation 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Revelation 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Isaiah 65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.
i am thankful that the signs all show, that day is coming sooner than many think. May we be found in Christ at that time. Amen.
