I am still trying to adjust to a life without electricty so I decided to celebrate the 144 hour mark with a little blogging, however I have been undecided aboout what to write about this morning. In the scheme of things having no power is not that big of a deal, but it definitely highlights how wonderful a blessing a simple thing like a working electrical circuit is. So with dreams of SpectroMagic dancing around in my head I jumped over to my favorite online bible site and saw this verse today and thought it appropriate for all of us:
11-13Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality. (Romans 12:12, The Message)
But then I realized that today is the 400 Birthday of the good old King James Version of the bible – and you know what htey say if its good enough for Paul, it’s good enough for us!
11Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. (Romans 12:11-13, King James Version)
So Happy Birthday KJV! Long live the King!
And for all of you out there realize the blessings you have around you and share those with as much innovation and joy that you can muster!
