...like lightning, and

Hello all!

On the way home from church, last night, we had an awesome lightning show!   Part of the time the lightning was in clouds or above them, lighting them up like huge paper lanterns.  At other times it streaked across the sky with five fingers stretched wide.

I wasn't able to get a pic... it seems every time I try to get one, I'm not fast enough or my camera isn't.   But this pic is a lot like it was last night. 


Thus, I didn't blog. 


 
I did however, get my autumn wall hanging done.

TODAY'S QUESTION

What's the bravest thing you've ever done?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

With all the lightning lighting up the sky last night, I was once again drawn to scripture.   In Matthew, chapter 28, the description of Christ's resurrection included lightning.   So the next time you see lightning think of these verses.

          In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.  His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white like snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.  

          And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.   He is not here: for He is risen, as He said.  Come, see the place where the Lord lay.  And go quickly, and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead; and, behold He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him: lo, I have told you.  

         And they departed quickly from the sepulcher with fear and great joy; and did run to bring His disciples word.  And as they went to tell His disciples, behold Jesus met them, saying, All hail.  And they came and held Him by the feet, and worshiped Him.  Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
~ Matthew 28:1-10
