Today I was reminded of the poetry of feeling. Furthermore, I was reminded that I have no idea what it would be like to have a mustache.

As I recall, my home church has been filling our awareness with reminders that we are in the last days. As far as I know, there are still some events that need to take place in European government, and then the “rapture” will take place. Hm.

Matt. 24, Luke 21, and Mark 13 contain the Olivet Discourse, in which is an outline of the Rapture, the 7-Year Tribulation, and then the Second Coming of Christ. After Christ comes, there will be the Battle of Armageddon, which will transition into the judgments of all people. Afterward, the Thousand-Year Rule of Jesus will end with Satan’s release and final battle. When all of earth is melted with a fervent heat, God will create a new heaven and new earth.

All these events have been drawn from intensive study of the entire Bible. In fact, almost all the information in Revelation is lumped from prophecy within all the other books of the Bible. It’s a wakeup call, really.

When I stayed at my parents’ house for two weeks for a Christmas respite, I started an Audrey Hepburn movie kick. But my sister told me I should just read my Bible more. It was funny, and correct.

I have intentions to be real with God this year. 100% effort will be used! I still have strong regrets and sadness, but simultaneous restoration and assurance overwhelms my self-awareness. Praise God for the covenant of grace that provides renewal in our everyday realities! He is coming soon, but He does not ever leave us wallowing in our sins.

Final note on spiritual recognition:

Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.  [Gal 1:3-5]

And this is one of my last crochet projects from the past few days:
