As I was saying - Castles - in time of plague - we'd like to have one!!!
King Henry VIII was serious about saving himself when Plague visited England during his reign.
Henry would quickly draw up a Great Plan visiting the healthier air of the countryside. Three purposes. One - to save himself. Two - showing the Monarchy Power and Influence requesting a Royal Party for Henry and his Court- great in number. Three - bankrupt nobility making the Crown come in First!
Unfortunately, the castles Henry brought the Court trailing along - yes - plague traveled with Henry.
We know today from epidemic studies, DNA saved human beings from plague. Rather a God Plan than Human Plan. Pope Clement VI was widely known placing torches or fire cannons around him in hope of forcing plague away. This wisdom came from the people who prayed for the Papacy. The fires kept the fleas away. God does amazing things yesterday and today. We can expect this tomorrow too.
What plagues do we have in the USA.
People fail to truly appreciate each other. Frequently troubled marriages have ease of friendship and economics.
Cornelius Vanderbilt is an odd choice for a Bible Study. He pushed all other people out of his way getting monopolies making the fortunes of his gilded era. He was one very tough hombre. Late in life, he married an unwilling female cousin. He was as rude to her as his first wife. She couldn't wait to be a widow. Cornelius knew this and said to willing and expectant relatives, who had not worked for their fortune - something grim and true. He told them they would become too grand to appreciate the monopoly on all trains entering NYC and would sell their cash cow. To spend more and enter into the fray of "Glorious Society" forgetting they were immigrants who had Family Fortune based on running a steamship ferry. He told them to wise up, keep the monopoly and try to live more simply. He was right. And as the fortunes were divided, spent in glorious living, more and more unhappiness and divorces and unusual circumstance did occur.
My very blessed and fortunate Great-Grandfather would sit his family down for a meal, in later life, and he would look down the table and say, "Eat Heartily. This might be your last meal."
I don't think he added, "Bon Appetit" or "Salut".
What's in your Castle?
We will all have a day where our Time is planned to go Home. One third of the population saying Jesus as Lord - we are talking about multitudes upon multitudes - as seen by Joel. Your Beloved being covered in the grace of Jesus Christ, Wonderful and Auspicious God.
Father God, warm and tender our hearts as Jesus did on the Emmaus Road. Help us to be to You, like Daniel, who knew God is God. Help us not to live as Grumple Stillkins.
Let us remember again,
God is Good and Your Goodness. Real Goodness. Life is strong and filled with real Hope of God. The Strength of God - Peter Knew Jesus is God and Jesus is Words of Life. Eternal Life.
Remembering wonderful Step-Grandfather Reverend Tate said, "Hell is going on a long vacation with the ones you love, in a little car!!!" And let us with gratitude - real gratitude - realize we could be parted forever from the people we truly love - and remember again - strive as communicators in our insignificant conversations.
Rembrandt's Road to Emmaus
Let us truly, and really appreciate, the people we have in our hearts, let us encourage and build them up. Knowing we want our Beloved to feel loved. To be appreciated. We want to walk the path God has given us to know we did our best. Today, today, today we pleased Jesus.
Our lives continue forever - and yet, the gift of time teaches us - Today is our life and we really want empowerment making the most and best of our God Given treasures He Gives to us today. Filling our tomorrow is filled with joy. Knowing His pleasure we worked for Wonderful Jesus. Father God embolden and empower - helping us - to be love and encouragement to the ones we Love and the people You have Given us.
Abba, thank You I feel well, praying again for ears have gone a bit louder today and feel confident this is Your Plan and Good will arrive. Thank You for my parents, and their continued goodness in our lives - as in-laws are family of the heart - decades of love. Thank You for Edward's health and innovations at conversations for entertainment, warmth and value.
Thank You for my children. Living and alive in Heaven. Thank You for our home and the people You have Lovingly, Lovingly given me. I appreciate Your steadfast love so I don't run down the hallway and give a swift kick or verbal punch .I am grateful for the Forgiveness my people, from You, have given me. I am grateful Your mercies renew and Your Mercies are diligently given in my life.
Hosea 14 Repentance to Bring Blessing
We will never again say ‘Our gods’
to what our own hands have made,
for in you the fatherless find compassion.”
4 “I will heal their waywardness
and love them freely,
for my anger has turned away from them.
5 I will be like the dew to Israel;
he will blossom like a lily.
Like a cedar of Lebanon
he will send down his roots;
6 his young shoots will grow.
His splendor will be like an olive tree,
his fragrance like a cedar of Lebanon.
7 People will dwell again in his shade;
they will flourish like the grain,
they will blossom like the vine—
Israel’s fame will be like the wine of Lebanon.
8 Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols?
I will answer him and care for him.
I am like a flourishing juniper;
your fruitfulness comes from me.”
9 Who is wise? Let them realize these things.
Who is discerning? Let them understand.
The ways of the Lord are right;
the righteous walk in them,
but the rebellious stumble in them.
What is our Father God? Tender mercy and renewed Strength of hands and heart and tender Love.
31 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. 32It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
Jesus You have told us. "How often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings!!!"
Oh, the places He would go. You uphold Life by Your Word. A Beautiful Promise and Sure Truth. Life Forevermore in Jesus the Only Son of God. God is Truth.
Jesus our Wonderful. Amen in Jesus Amen.
♔ Lord Jesus Saves! †
