John 20 & 21

Today is my last blog entry from the Gospel of John and my last blog entry altogether, until May.  My blogoversary is March 31st and by midnight tonight, I am taking a break or fast from all media for 800 hours.  I have a ticker above my blogoversary, in the right column of this blog.  It shows a woman running.  I plan to do lots of walking and maybe work up to running.  I also plan to spend lots of time doing things that get neglected when I’m on the computer.  I’ll have someone checking my e-mail for me, but that is it.  This fast from media is really for the purpose of prayer and renewal.  I need refreshment.  I’ll be praying for you all and I would be very glad to know you are praying for me too.

John 15

 

   
Easter Song
 
 
  Hear the bells ringing
They’re singing that you can be born again
Hear the bells ringing
They’re singing christ is risen from the dead

The angel up on the tombstone
Said he has risen, just as he said
Quickly now, go tell his disciples
That jesus christ is no longer dead

Joy to the word, he has risen, hallelujah
He’s risen, hallelujah
He’s risen, hallelujah

John 14

We do an online daily kids devotional, in addition to reading in John.  Today’s lesson was a good theme for what we’re starting today.  We recently got some important things done, that have been plaguing our minds for awhile, and now we have more things that we must confront with faith and courage…but we’re not prepared. 

Hebrews 12:1 says:

"Wherefore  seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside  every  weight,  and the sin  which doth so easily beset  us, and let us run  with  patience  the race  that is set before  us…"

We’ll be laying more things aside now, and preparing ourselves spiritually, mentally and physically.  A note regarding physical discipline: Check out the president’s challenge button link in the right column of this blog.  Today is the start of a new challenge, and it’s a fun way to keep track of PE.
