“The sea hath no king but God alone.” ~Dante Gabriel Rossetti
“How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is clearly Ocean.” ~Arthur C. Clarke
“You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.” ~Psalm 89:9, ESV
Sometimes, when I feel all churned up inside from too much chaos, it helps me to meditate on something much more powerful and strong. Thinking of the force of the ocean’s waves, its pull back into the depths of the sea, reminds me that God is so, so much stronger than this temporary life. Life is good, life is a gift, and life returns to Jesus. He made all things, He controls all things, He is taking care of me. Nothing else comes close to this. I can rest, I can trust. Blessings, Lisa
“It was not long afterwards that He rose into the sky and disappeared into a cloud, leaving them staring after Him. As they were straining their eyes for another glimpse, suddenly two white-robed men were standing there among them, and said, ‘Men of Galilee, why are you standing here staring at the sky? Jesus has gone away to heaven, and some day, just as He went, He will return!'” ~ Acts 1:10-11
“At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” ~Luke 21:27
“Look, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of Him.” ~Revelation 1:7
Be ready; be prayerful; be watching. Blessings, Lisa
Wow….who would have thought it? Sherbert, which is how I have ALWAYS pronounced it, is actually sherbet, pronounced…..wait……get ready…..sherbit. You have to actually say it out loud to get the full annoying effect of the correct pronounciation. Sherbit. I don’t like it, not one bit. I like sherbert, sherbert. Say it with me proudly. Because if you say it the correct way, people will just think you’re weird , or possibly snobby. :) And we don’t want that now, do we?!
While I’m at it, how about all those other excellent “erts”? Like besmirched and alert. One of my little jokes(I don’t have many, so I get excited about the few I know) is:
Always be alert. (pause) Because you can never have too many lerts! (riotous laughter ensues)
Ok, Ok, I will let you now return to your brilliant and stimulating Monday morning activities. Thank you for your time and effort you will spend in promoting the erts. ;) Slainte, Lisa
P.S. Please let me know in the comments how you pronounce sherbet….this is a burning question of interest for me.
