Finally, I have a blog!

With a couple of inches of snow, covered by an inch of ice, which is now covered my another inch of snow... I finally have time to start a blog!

I can think of nothing better to include in this first entry than the following from Charles Spurgeon. I hope you enjoy.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 21:4)

Yes, we shall come to this if we are believers. Sorrow shalt cease, and tears shall be wiped away. This is the world of weeping, but it passes away. There shall be a new heaven and a new earth, so says the first verse of this chapter; and therefore there will be nothing to weep over concerning the Fall and its consequent miseries. Read the second verse and note how it speaks of the bride and her marriage. The Lamb's wedding is a time for boundless pleasure, and tears would be out of place. The third verse says that God Himself will dwell among men; and surely at His right hand there are pleasures forevermore, and tears can no longer flow.

What will our state be when there will be no more sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain? This will be more glorious than we can as yet imagine. O eyes that are red with weeping, cease your scalding flow, for in a little while ye shall know no more tears! None can wipe tears away like the God of love, but He is coming to do it. "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Come, Lord, and tarry not; for now both men and women must weep!


  1. Wow! I'm the first person to comment! Let's see....what should I say?

    I'll pick this:


    It really is a glorious thought to consider what heaven will be like. I think life here on earth will cause us to glorify Him so much more (and why angels can't in the way we will)--b/c we know from what depths we came and finally see really, at what cost He paid for such wretches. His glory that we will one day see face to face will show us His grace and mercy that we can't really fathom here.

    To know God and His condenscention to us wicked people, that He should want us and call us His own, to give His Son on our behalf, to have us dwell with Him for ever, to be called HIS child and given HIS name---this will be our song in heaven.

    Ephesians 1--to the glory of God! We are HIS workmanship, all to HIS glory and His grace.

  2. Glad to see you started a blog.

    This is such a reminder to me that while life here is not easy, there is something to look forward to. This world is not our home.

  3. Welcome to the blogosphere!

    God's peace. †
