Well then....looking back into the site and seeing my last post was in April was a wake up call for things, shall we say...not done?
Oh yes, I can say all the usual things...May was a train wreck...EOY testing, stress, stress, stress...then June was just darn glad to be out of school and vacationing, etc. etc. You know...all the usual "Aren't we all so BUSY?" Sometimes it seems like a bit of a competition. Several of us can get together and actually list all the "stuff" we have going and then get even more exhausted just talking about it out loud. But then....just maybe... we can feel "justified" for NOT doing some things that were most important; for instance posting to this site. Then I am reminded at what my last scripture in the series I was sharing is...and I think AHA! Yes indeed - there are certainly powers that do NOT want scripture posted like my last one which you will see momentarily. So - begin again!
The 9th and last scripture that the Lord gave to me was the week before I was allowed to be vertical after my 10 week stint in bed in a horizontal fashion. If you go back and read the rythm of the verses that were given - it is a perfect thing that the last one was the most important.
Now as we get closer to enjoying the last precious weeks of summer, it will be a good thing to remember the "most important", especially when things leave the rythm of summer.
The last verse is: "...but He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed." Isaiah 53:5
So...He was - so many things and what it all comes down to is summed up so beautifully in this verse. An odd verse in the bright sunshine of summer? No, indeed, a statement of truth for all seasons!
