Experience has shown me that there is wisdom in the advice about keeping my words sweet in case I have to eat them. So I’m tiptoeing tenderly into the blogworld in case I choose to retreat, hoping no one will notice that I have been here. On occasion I have had to eat some pretty bitter pills and I have no doubt that I might tread heavily in this wonderland of cyberspace. So why take the chance?
My reason is based on the scripture in II Cor. 2:15 which says in part: “Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God.” I’m alive! So how do I send a “Christ-like fragrance” up to God in whatever number of years I have remaining. I must learn new ways to communicate to people on the run. I’ve noticed that often those people on the run are running to the internet! So here I am! Catch ‘um if I can! Hope to entice with sweet aroma rising from my potpourri of thought and words.
(I hope you will read “Why Me, Lord” which is the second page under About. It will help explain why I am entering this new realm of learning at the age of eighty. I will never cease to be amazed at the blessings I receive.)
THE GOSPEL John 3:16-18 (NIV)
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in ther name of God’s one and only Son.”
