Janus (looking forward)

What will 2015 bring?

A visit from Elise, Sam and So Young, a baby for Joe and Nancy?

Since Christmas I’ve amassed a few books, there’s reading to be done.

Ideally there’ll be trips to Spa and Silverstone, Wakehurst and Bough Beech.

Will I buy a record deck?

As I scan the chronological horizon there are no guarantees things will go as planned.

Since my first post of 2015 I’ve learnt that one our closest neighbours is seriously ill, without a good prognosis.

Today I pondered these words.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

James 4: 7-15

  1. Please feel free to delete the ‘?’ After saying A baby for Joe and nancy! Judging by the size of my stomach I think you can replace the ‘?’ With a ‘!’

  2. maranatha! I wonder if we shall be on the “welcoming committee”..are the days for “planning committee” over?!.. Come Lord Jesus.

    • Amen, the challenge for here and now is “Do we love the present world too much? I’m enjoying, and challenged by Bunyan’s PP at the mo. It’s hard to believe it was written so long ago.
