In the title, find a nice German compound noun for you. All the nouns just get run together to form a new noun.
As you could tell, going through "Christ have Mercy" got me started reading and writing on a ton of stuff again. This is all good, except not right now. We will pick up where we left off, later.
In the meantime, safe and happy holidays to everyone! Hopefully, everyone can grab a little vacation.
You may pray for our bridal couple and all our families. The wedding is on July 17th. The relatives are arriving in 15 days. We are engaging in lots of great get-togethers. It will be rather a large wedding now. Hardly anyone has declined the invitation and long lost relatives have announced themselves by word of mouth. All of this is delightful.
June 28th would also have marked Stefan's 20th birthday. I won't be posting anything for that. But he will be on our minds, as always. Find is youtube videos under "nafteslooc" (cool Stefan, backwards)
If anyone wants to e-mail, phone or visit, that would be splendid. My contact is in the profile.
Just something from Romans that relates to mercy, justification and our limited understanding. (Romans 11:30-36) What would we ever be without the word and what would we be without God's mercy.
For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy. For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
“For who has known the mind of the Lord,
or who has been his counselor?”
“Or who has given a gift to him
that he might be repaid?”For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
