How do you like the interesting reflection pic Tony took en route?
And the beautiful bloom of flowers on the back fence at Ella’s rental?
We took a trip to Adelaide yesterday to visit daughter Ella & grandson Phoenix.
Little tackers love to help. I think giving them things to do like this & doing them with you is essential when you’re raising kids. Teach ’em young. Their enthusiasm & joy is refreshing. We as adults don’t need to do it all ourselves!
God gives us children to make families who help each other.
The pill & abortion & people not seeking God are all deceptive ways of the Devil that take the true joy out of life. We are meant to have huge families!
However God has a plan & His only begotten Son has defeated the Enemy of God & man!
Phoenix loves Dusty the plane. It’s fun interactive television viewing for Phoenix! But take a look at the captions. It’s saying heroism is good even to death for the sake of just doing something you like doing.
I don’t want my grandson to see or hear stuff like that but I can’t shield him from all of the bad in the world. All I can do is love him & when I get the opportunity teach about Jesus & how Jesus loves him etc etc etc. There is a lot of etc!
And I can pray! Angel protection Lord around Ella & Phoenix day in day out thank You Jesus!
And God does! An Italian or maybe he’s Greek, the neighbor across the road, always walks past when we are there, doing a little jig whilst playing a harmonica. Last time he gave Phoenix $2.
And somebody mysteriously brings in Ella’s bins for her!
Phoenix is prone to croup. We got him a humidifier & there is a Young Living essential oil specific to treating croup which I will look into for him.
Tony was brilliant in mowing the grass all nice & neat.
Tony bought his shaver & Ella bought three pairs of jeans bargain bargain price!
I see God in action here as God my Provider.
And Ella makes THE BEST CURRIES EVER!
All in all it was wonderful time spent with wonderful family!
God is love!
Teach a youth about the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
The Lords eyes keep watch over knowledge,
but He overthrows the words of the treacherous.
1 Corinthians 2:12
Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who comes from God, so that we may understand what has been freely given to us by God.
I forgot to mention the awesome start to the day. Right before my eyes in the upper room! It’s not everyday that you see something like this?! Here is what I wrote in my notes:
This morning about 6.45 I followed through the telescope Mr Night Heron as he stalked the shoreline from jetty to jetty & then catch a fish!
The single white strand feather fell like a mantle down his back
I prophesy catches of men.
And I also forgot about the little mouse that Dash dog was nosing out with her long snout at the fence & it ran under the fig tree to hide. (Which it did successfully praise God!) another treat for Phoenix & Hs Nanna!
The Devil has no choice but to submit to Jesus.
The Devil is broken in & has no power over a believer!
Believers have the power of God over the Devil.
Put on the whole Armour of God & don’t forget your Shoes of Peace!
Tony’s on the Devil’s back.
The Devil is not on Tony’s back.
Tony is riding the Devil.
The Devil is not riding Tony.
And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who announce the gospel of good things!
God said, “Go in there.” I did. Obviously. And look! One single clump of white in my secret purple field. He teaches me that Monkey flower can be white too! 🙂
A few days ago He had a Painted Lady butterfly dance upon some of these purple flowers.
Just for my delight.
This is my Secret Place.
One of them.
If you are wondering about the white turban. I wanted to swim over deeper water. That’s my t shirt.
Tony sailed & was the cameraman Today.
It’s what he loves best.
Holy Spirit Wind first.
Live the Holy life!
Praise Jesus is all I could say.
SEE THE CROSS.
My sins tarnish my soul.
But bronze is a beautiful tarnish colour.
Jesus on the Cross.
The serpent image on the pole.
Then the Lord said to Moses, Make a snake image and mount it on a pole. When anyone who is bitten looks at it, he will recover. So Moses made a bronze snake and mounted it on a pole. Whenever someone was bitten, and he looked at the bronze snake, he recovered.)
The Serpent pole.
The Devil’s work in us.
My sins on the Cross.
Jesus becomes my sin.
Is punished for my sin.
Hence the shape of the Serpent.
My sins are with Him.
He deals with my sin.
Jesus power is greater than Satan’s power.
He defeats the works of the Enemy.
But Jesus rose again.
He is an overcomer.
Where “The broad street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.”
At the right hand of His Father in Heaven.
As I do.
In Heaven’s places on Earth.
I arise with Him.
A new creation.
Jesus beautifies me.
He takes on my sin.
Takes on a different colour Himself.
To colour me different.
My tarnished self tarnishes Him.
To a beautiful bronze colour.
His beautiful bronze colour heals me forever.
When the sun shines on bronze it becomes like gold!
When the Son of God shines His light on my tarnished self I become like gold in His Father’s sight.
This is our Heavenly Father’s vision.
He sees me.
As pure gold.
“… so that the genuineness of your faith — more valuable than gold, which perishes though refined by fire — may result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
“I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire so that you may be rich, white clothes so that you may be dressed and your shameful nakedness not be exposed, and ointment to spread on your eyes so that you may see.”
