Just a Reminder…

We’re on break right now, but I wanted to share a few things this week.
#1- There are lot’s of people out looking at Christmas lights this time of year and many miss one of the most spectacular light shows of all —The Geminid Meteor Showers which should be peaking tonight. So get out there and look up. No store-bought tree or decked-out rooftop could ever compare to the brilliance of God’s night sky. Follow this link for more info on where and when to observe.http://www.amsmeteors.org/2012/12/viewing-the-geminid-meteor-shower-in-2012/

#2- The ladies at the deli counter of our local Asian food market created some fun decorations that we took immediate notice of because of their celestial theme. So here’s our attempt at some Calendar Page Stars as we say goodbye to this year and prepare to usher in the next.

#3- With so much emphasis on the birth of Christ we sometimes forget the other message of Advent which is that He is coming again, and next time not as a helpless baby but as Creator and King of the Universe. Here’s some special memory work we’re focussing on during our break:
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, THE BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR.”
The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come, let the one who desires take the water of life without price… He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. COME, LORD JESUS! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. AMEN.” -Revelation 22:16-21

  1. This was a wonderful reminder in your post – – Jesus, the Lamb of God, the Creator and Redeemer will come and reign! He is Sovereign. We are studying Revelation in our women’s Bible study and it brings a renewed focus of God as the King of kings and Lord of lords who will reign . . . Revelation 7:12 “Blessing and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever.” Rev 5:12 “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength, glory and honor and blessing!”. Have a wonderful day!! See you soon! That will be a celebration too! Smilin’ for Him, Oma


  2. Well, so much for the geminid meteor shower of 2012 in Templeton, California. Before I went to bed about 10 pm I went outside into the cold, crisp air and beheld a beautiful, clear sky with millions of bright stars, but no meteors. I woke up at 1230 am and saw no meteors. At 2:35 am I viewed the sky again — no meteors. 4:30 am! Surely, “the most spectacular light show of all” would be peaking. I rubbed my blurry eyes and beheld . . . FOG . . . Snow white, thick fog . I could barely make out the glow from the lamp post across the street.

    1. Oh dear! The boys all slept out on the lanai and we saw at least a dozen big ones before they fell asleep, which was long before the suggested 10-2 viewing time. I only saw a few later in the night so maybe the bulk of the shower really did occur earlier on this time. Sounds like you didn’t get much sleep and it was cold, too! Brrrr!
