Beyond the Mask

A New Heaven and a New Earth 21 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 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. 4 ‘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.” Beyond the Mask I look and see faces co

Musing 7-16-2020 David, Goliath, Masks, & Love

I was going through some books on the shelf to see what we might donate (more importantly get off the shelf and out of our house)! One of them was a book of Bible stories for children. The cover was a montage of pictures displaying pictures from famous scenes. Moses parting the red sea. Jesus walking on water. Abraham and Isaac. A picture of the Ten Commandments etched in tablets.

He said to him, 'Tend my sheep'. “Jesus said to Peter the third time, 'Simon, son of John, do you love me?' Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, 'Do you love me?' and he said to him, 'Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.' Jesus said to him, 'Feed my sheep'.” During this pandemic and time of self isolation

July 4th Musing 2020

Musings for July 4, 2020 Some of you may have thought I forgot to send a musing this week, but I did not because I wanted to send it out today. July 4th is a special day for both this nation and my family. My grandfather (my Mom’s father who I called Grandaddies) was inducted into the Army for World War II on July 4th. 60 years to the day later, I contacted Disney World via email and was fortunate to be able to have him honored as Walt Disney World’s Veteran of the Day where he participated in ceremony to lower the flag on Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom. It was a thrill for him and his entire family. His wife of 69 years, his daughter, his grandchildren and his great-grandchildren were
