In Memory of the Esh Family

It's hard to believe it has been a year since the tragic accident that took so many members of the Esh and extended family members.Sometimes when I listen to their music I get teary eyed but I know they are rejoicing with the Lord.
They touched so many lives and they continue to be missed by so many people. If you never knew the Eshes you can learn about them here. You can't get the music from the website anymore but they have a number you can call to order CDs.

I hope you are blessed by their music as I have been.

So Much Sadness

The earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan is just absolutely horrendous. The loss of so many souls to eternity. It just breaks my heart that so many people have lost their loved ones. Earlier this week a couple in PA lost seven of their eight children in a fire.
The only One who can comfort all these families is the Lord Jesus Christ.  The couple who lost their children are believers and I know that having their faith will get them  through this terrible tragedy as well as  the believers in Japan. My heart is so heavy right now.

More on Apostle Paul

As you might remember from my last post we are going through the book of Acts and the more I read Acts, the more intriguing I find Paul to be. He is one of the apostles it would have been great to meet because one could learn a lot from him. We finished up the end of chapter 20 where Paul is saying goodbye to his friends before he sails again who they knew they would never see him in this earthly life again. The emotions rain high that day I'm sure.

He was beheaded under Emperor Nero who was a very wicked man. I read a little about him in Martyrs Mirror and I just don't see how anyone could could be so evil but he was. Reminds me of some of the modern day rulers and dictators who are in the news nowadays.
One day, these men will have to answer to God for their actions and they won't have the legions of supporters to protest or protect them from God's judgement. They will face the Lord alone. Oh the thought just causes my heart to tremble.
