Be Set Free

Hey there. It’s me again, as you well know. I have had a horrid day as far as my physical well being. I had to clean out some gutters yesterday during torrential downpours, and I got drenched on three occasions, as well as climbing ladders, which is very ill advised, in my situation. At any rate, I could not walk today, just a few steps here and there. I had to take some medicine and a hot pack and some ice packs and go to bed until 3 this afternoon. I was fortunate, in that Dad has been sleeping all day lately, so it was easy to convince him that we should go to bed.

I do not know what my future holds, as far as my physical deterioration. I had no idea that I could become SO debilitated SO rapidly. The pain and degradation to my joints seems to be on fast forward. I have seen folks in their 80’s get around better. Oh well, this is not to be another litany of feeling sorry for myself.

What I wanted to say today is about Jehovah, and his Son, Jesus. I will be brief, because I just want to impart a tiny kernel of loving kindness to you today, since I can’t go door to door like my fellow Witnesses. I thought I could tell you that God has a personal name, not just Lord, or God, like some Bibles say. No, he has a formal, real name just like you and I do, and it is Jehovah. It used to appear in all Bibles, but, over the last 2000 years or so, it has been removed. Why would certain people do such a thing, you may ask?

Well, it turns out that it has not been in certain people’s interest to have the “little” people understanding the Bible, and certain other religions have said that the sacred name should not be spoken aloud. But, Jehovah wants you to know his name, to say it, to pray to him, and to love his name. I mean, if you think about it, God knows your name! And you would not want people just calling you man, or woman instead of your personal name, would you?

“Hey man, come here.” or “Woman, let’s go get a cup of coffee.”

That would be pretty strange. I was really amazed when I found out that God’s proper name, Jehovah, had been totally removed from many translations of the Bible, such as the King James. Sometimes you can still find it at Psalm 83:18, which says, “You, whose name is Jehovah,you alone are Most High over all the earth.” The truth is that Jehovah’s name appears thousands of times in ancient Bible manuscripts!

What I really like is that when Jesus taught his followers the “model prayer”, or what many call “the Lord’s prayer”, Jesus even says, “Our Father in heaven, let your name be sanctified.’

Ok, that is my bit of preaching for today. Now , back to your regularly scheduled blog entries!

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
