This 'n' That

Wow, I cannot believe that it is nearly October! The month of September has absolutely zoomed past, and I don't even remember how it was spent! Oh well, such is the busyness of life.

Around here, it is finally starting to feel like fall, and this morning's chilly temperatures were no exception. We also had quite a bit of fog here this morning and as I stepped outside to fill the bird feeders and realized that I could barely see to the back of the yard, I happened to think of this verse:
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. (1 Corinthians 13:12)
Just as I could not see far beyond the trees due to the thick mist that essentially covered my eyes, so too can we not fully see our Lord in all of His glory. We are incapable of sufficiently comprehending all that He is and all that He does. There is still so much about this world and our lives that we do not understand. Yes, we have His Word. Says Spurgeon, "The revelation of God is ample and profound, but our understanding is weak and shallow." Yes, we have the gracious illumination of the Holy Spirit, but it is not until He takes us to glory that we will fully see Him and fully know Him. What a wondrous day that will be! What a thing to look forward to!

But, today is still today and we are still here in this fog-filled world, so you may as well make the best of it by enjoying your week in review (kind of):
  • We should not grow complacent; we have work to do!
  • This is adorable, though it's not your weekly dose. This is basically me when the decorations for autumn arrive, although, a video of me would not be nearly as cute.
  • A bit about our dual citizenship.
  • We all have opinions. We all have something to say. Just because we have something to say, doesn't mean we have to say it. There is often wisdom in silence.
  • Andy Stanley gives us a perfect of example of an instance where, perhaps, it would be best to stay quiet rather than speaking and revealing his ignorance.
  • Here is your weekly dose of adorable.
  • Um, did they not see this coming?
  • The Day of Atonement was a copy of Christ's atonement.
We do not yet perceive how he will make those dark dispensations of trials and afflictions that come upon his people really to subserve his glory and their lasting happiness; but up there we shall see providence, as it were, face to face; and I suppose it will be amongst our greatest surprises, the discovery of how the Lord dealt with us. —Charles Spurgeon
