Perry the Platypus

Just when you think your life is made up of sheer survival, is boring and mundane,  you find yourself  designing and sewing a Perry the Platypus costume for a seven year old!

I hadn’t even heard of Perry. I certainly didn’t know what Perry looked like. Never mind say the parents. You can Google him. This is not much comfort. I can Google me too.

If you are in the same mess, watch for a Perry costume appearing somewhere under my googled name. Wow! What a credit to have on my resume!

Doesn’t God have the best ideas for shaking you out of your sad self, your staid comfort zone? You gotta love his sense of humour.

Psalm 30:5b-The nights of crying your eyes out give way to days of laughter (MSG).

 

 

Good Friday

 

According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia,

Good Friday (from the now obsolete senses pious, holy of the word “good”), also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians and it commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Based on the details of the Gospels, the Crucifixion of Jesus was most probably on a Friday (John 19:42).The estimated year of Good Friday is AD 33, by two different groups, and originally as AD 34 by Isaac Newton. 

Another accounting places the date as Friday, 3 April AD 33.

Dispute the year??? Maybe.

Dispute that it happened??

Nobody disputes it any more. Why do you???

Let’s Start a New Cut-off Date.

Are we ever really ready? It’s a good job there is a cut-off date – December 25th- or we would be buying, baking and decorating for ever. After years of learning better habits, I still tend to occasionally fall into the same mess.

Right now I am making serviettes for our dining table. Red with white machine embroidery on each. They will be pretty as is but if the cut-off date doesn’t come too soon, I might also embroider each person’s name on one.. See what I mean?

I wasn’t going to bake much but hubby wanted cookies for his friends..so I made one batch of Do-Dos. But one batch alone on a plate looks a little sad and the cut-off date isn’t here yet…—  See what I mean?

I am making a new cut-off date. It is today! Want to join me?

Thank God that He doesn’t make a cut-off date for us. He generously extends and re-extends time for us to ask Him into our lives.

He came into this world as a baby…..God became man…so that He could die on the cross for our sin, our wrong-doing,  and make a way for us to be in fellowship with Him.

But He is a Gentleman. We have to ask Him into our life.

Because what if He suddenly decided on a cut-off date? And we missed Christmas in every way?
