The Honeymoon: part 3

My Eve…

I end where I began with the never ending story

A tale old as time

Yet always fresh and new and each unique

Each time a Adam and a Eve find each other…

Where the nothing

My nothing called loneliness

ended when your heart

Joined and intertwined with mine

Beating life hope wonder into my dying heart

Resurrecting it from the chains my personal nothing was consuming it

and yet also is just beginning

With my jasmine

My Disney princess

My Eve

The keeper of my heart soul mind and body

My Wanda

As we write our own never ending story with

Our lives and the lives of our children….

*******************************

I end where I began with the never ending story adding the circle of life to its conclusion-

(Gee doesn’t my son look like a younger version On Stranger Things and the cable commercials)

A tale old as time

Yet always fresh and new

Each time a Adam and a Eve find each other…

To repeat the circle of life here and for

Eternity:

Ecclesiastes 3:

11 He has made everything appropriate† in its time.† He has also put eternity in their hearts,†

Eventually our children and their children.

To continue the earthly circle of life

And Us in heaven:

2 Corinthians 5:

8 In fact, we are confident, and we would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.† 9 Therefore, whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to be pleasing† to him.

Continuing the heavenly circle of life

With our family and friends

To continue The never ending story

Here on this side of eternity:

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (NIV, Matthew 6:25-33)

To continue the never ending story

On the other side of eternity: heaven

And then to Continue the never ending story…Till all of us eventually In the redeemed creation:

“I saw a new heaven and a new earth. . . . I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. . . . And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God’” (Revelation 21: 1-3).

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👩‍👩‍👧‍👦Epilogue: a address to all Adams and Eves

I hope you we all see this thru Christ eyes:

Luke 21:1-4 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Widow’s Two Mites

21 And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites.[a] So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings [b]for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.”

That Christ with 2 fish miraculous fed 5000

Matthew 14:

13 When Jesus heard about it,† he withdrew from there by boat to a remote place to be alone. When the crowds heard this, they followed him on foot from the towns. 14 When he went ashore,† he saw a large crowd, had compassion on them, and healed their sick.† 15 When evening came, the disciples† approached him and said, “This place is deserted, and it is already late.† Send the crowds away so that they can go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” 16 “They don’t need to go away,” Jesus told them. “You give them something to eat.”

17 “But we only have five loaves and two fish here,” they said to him. 18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 Then he commanded the crowds to sit down on the grass. He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them. He broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.† 20 Everyone ate and was satisfied. They picked up twelve baskets full of leftover pieces.† 21 Now those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

I took my God given talent of creativity to multiply and transform into a banquet for in my particular case for you Wanda to feed our hearts minds and bodies

For the rest of our lives…..

And Not thru the worlds eyes which all of us Adams and Eves are prone to:

Envy the prosperous

https://youtu.be/bEmjiCoZ6e4

https://www.crossway.org/articles/5-dangers-of-money/

Becoming like the ot Israelites when they were delivered. Out of Egypt:

That night all the members of the community raised their voices and wept aloud. All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, “If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this wilderness! Why is the Lord bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?” And they said to each other, “We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt.” (Numbers 14:1-4)o

Not thru sins eyes

All in its proper context

In the way God works differently between christains and non christains

Psalm 37:

do not envy those who do wrong.† 2 For they wither quickly like grass and wilt like tender green plants.† 3 Trust in the Lord and do what is good;† dwell in the land and live securely.†† 4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.† 5 Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act,†

Blessings or lack or blesses

Lack of or overflowing with wealth or resources

And all lives has ups and downs

All lives has give or takes

All lives has crosses or crowns

Whether the person what’s to admit or not

Swerves a different purpose for the Christian And Non christain

Non Christian:

[God] makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Matthew 5:45b

Judgement

Call to repentance

Romans 2:

Or do you despise the riches of his kindness,† restraint,† and patience,† not recognizing† that God’s kindness† is intended to lead you to repentance?

Christian:

First. There is a certain train or course of events, by the providence of God, falling to every one of us during our life in this world. And that is our lot, as being allotted to us by the sovereign God, our Creator and Governor, “in whose hand our breath is, and whose are all our ways. ” This train of events is widely different to different persons, according to the will and pleasure of the sovereign Manage, who orders men’s condition in the world in a great variety, some moving in a higher, some in a lower sphere.

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

In this scriptural light :

Much is given much is expected:

Luke 12:46-48 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

46 that slave’s master will come on a day he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know. He will cut him to pieces[a] and assign him a place with the unbelievers.[b] 47 And that slave who knew his master’s will and didn’t prepare himself or do it[c] will be severely beaten. 48 But the one who did not know and did things deserving of blows will be beaten lightly. Much will be required of everyone who has been given much. And even more will be expected of the one who has been entrusted with more.[d].

Isaiah 64:

6 All of us have become like something unclean, and all our righteous acts are like a polluted† garment;† all of us wither like a leaf,† and our iniquities† carry us away like the wind.

Matthew 23:

25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed† and self-indulgence.† 26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup,† so that the outside of it† may also become clean. 27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs,† which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of the bones of the dead and every kind of impurity. 28 In the same way, on the outside you seem righteous to people, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. 29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous, 30 and you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we wouldn’t have taken part with them in shedding the prophets’ blood.’ 31 So you testify against yourselves that you are descendants of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your ancestors’ sins!†
