In A Lifetime or Eternity?

There was this beggar. He used to sit under a rich man’s table to catch the crumbs that fell from it.

The beggar had a life of misery. The rich man had a life of luxury.

The beggar believed in God; the rich man did not.

They both died.

The beggar went to heaven. The rich man went to hell.

The beggar was comforted. The rich man tormented.

“But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, an likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.” Luke 16 vs 25

Is this it, a lifetime? Or is there more, an eternity? Judge for yourself and live accordingly. πŸ™‚

Crumbs

“You speak of signs and wonders, I need something other, I would believe if I was able, But I’m waiting on the crumbs from your table.” from the song Crumbs From Your Table by U2

When is it time to stop speaking? I mean about anything. Should it be to hell with speeches?

Have a moon morning and a starry night. πŸ™‚

Have a lovely, sunflower weekend. πŸ™‚

Somewhere around the world someone is having a birthday. Happy Birthday. πŸ™‚

Leaving THEN behind

But first.

“By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.” Psalm 104 vs 12

This week, as with so many other weeks, God has bless me with a choir of birds. Every morning I hear them singing at my window. So amazing. πŸ™‚

And last night, thunder, lightning, and rain. What did I do? I went out and spun around in the rain.

“You’ve got to get yourself together, You’ve got stuck inΒ  moment and now you can’t get out of it, Don’t say that later will be better, now you’re stuck in a moment, And you can’t get out of it.” from the song, Stuck In A Moment by U2

Broken relationships. Angry words. Wounds, scars that wouldn’t heal. A terrible mistake. Something of terrible significance. So many things that some people never leave behind. Somehow they’re stuck in the then, the time when these things happened, and they refuse to move on, refuse to heal. They never reach the later in their lives because for whatever reason they’re stuck.

I’ve been there, but I refuse to stay there. Pain comes with healing, and we heal in our own time. But how long is too long to get over something? Days? Months? Years? A lifetime?

Life comes with its negatives but we must remember . . .

This song makes me want to get all dress up and go singing. “And I’m feeling gooooood.” πŸ˜†

Have a great weekend everyone. πŸ™‚
