Good Morning! Welcome to June! I always think of my high school buddy Doug Thompson on this day. Doug had a June 1 birthday and I remembered it because mine is July 1. We had a nice run this morning, then I took the pups for a walk. It looks to be a great day! I want to thank John Maledy for toiling in my yard yesterday and getting the trees kind of out of the other trees. John worked hard, THANK YOU!! Enjoy the wonderful day God has given us. Have a blessed day!
I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
I love this image God gives us through John. The “New Jerusalem” sounds wonderful. You know our task is to bring this closer everyday right? Jesus was the inbreaking of the Kingdom to Come! We follow Him, we live a life that reflects Him and we bring the Kingdom a step closer. We don’t have to wait for death for something better, we are called to live better. We are called to engage our community, our neighbors, all the while reflecting Christ. I hope that you will do all you can today to welcome in the Kingdom. Just a thought for today.
