Hello to you. It’s 9:01 am on this deliciously cool Thursday morning – definitely starting to feel like fall here! We had morning temperatures in our area between 50 and 60 degrees!
My being has been in a prayer space a lot lately – so many things going on in the affairs of men and nature! I am left wondering if the answer to my prayers for the greatest, most loving good for this Earth is what we have before us. The forces of Earth becoming the stern voice of God, speaking to us in such a manner we are forced to stop and listen. Will those who insist on ignoring what is happening to the Earth’s systems finally pay attention? I wonder….
(The God of my understanding is pure energy, so I was curious to see how much energy is in a hurricane)
“The energy produced is measured by the amount of water produced by the hurricane and its subsequent condensation — the measurement is called the “latent heat of condensation.”. An average hurricane produces about a half inch (1.27 centimeters) of rain each day in an area about 825 miles (1,328 kilometers) across.”
Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime;
therefore, we must be saved by hope.
Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history;
therefore, we must be saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous, could be accomplished alone;
therefore, we must be saved by love.
No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as it is from our own standpoint;
therefore, we must be saved by the final form of love, which is forgiveness.
