The New Ark


"As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away.

That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left."
Matthew 24:38-40

tHe InNer AdoRnmenT

"Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection
to your own husbands;
that if any obey not the word,
they also may without the word
be won by the conversation of the wives;
While they behold your chaste
conversation coupled with fear.
Whose adorning let it not be
that outward adorning of plaiting the hair,
and of wearing gold, or putting on of apparel;
But let it be the hidden man of the heart,
in that which is not corruptible,
even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit,
which is in the sight of God of great price."
1Peter 3:1-4


""Rejoicing in hope;
patient in tribulation;
continuing instant in prayer."
Romans 12:12

"No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar
or puts it under a bed.  Instead, he puts it on a stand,
so that those who come in can see the light.

For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed,
and nothing concealed that will not be known
or brought out into the open."
Luke 8:16-17

Peter O 'Toole star of Lawrence of Arabia, who battled with alcohol was never a fitness freak.

"Have nothing to do with godless myths
and old wives' tales; rather train yourselves to be godly.
For physical training is of some value,
but godliness has value for all things,
holding promise for both the present life and the life to come."

Recently I saw the William Blake exhibition....
a sobering experience,
as it was mostly his works on Hell!

I really liked his portrayal of the Book of Job.
The artwork and written text were beautifully
presented lovely his presentation...
and so old, and still inspirational.
