Pearls before swine is one of my current favourite cartoons. This one appeared in a free newspaper today and it particularly made me smile. I like the reference to “Life’s big questions” if you know what I mean? 😉
Heaven did come to earth last weekend. It didn’t come with earthquake and rapture but it came. It does every day and we who are aware of it are sometimes guilty of keeping it to ourselves.
Food for thought as we approach the time when we make a significant effort to “celebrate the resurrection” ( h/t Rev’d Lesley & Phil’s treehouse )
It strikes me that we need to remember the pain in order to give some point of reference to the good times. A glorious sunset is made even more glorious when comparing it to a dark grey and dismal drizzle from the day before. Even a simple meal can seem wonderful when it comes after a period of starvation. Similarly wouldn’t the joy of heaven would be made greater by the memory of what was endured on earth.
