This past Monday I had an annoying little cough. Dry. Persistent. Probably a lot like this blog. Well, today I am on day three of the worst cold I have ever had. Although I did set a personal best for Internal Body Temperature, so I've got that going for me. Yay?

I didn't eat much Tuesday or Wednesday. It was like a 48-hour fast . . . but for all the wrong reasons. Blah . . .

Early this morning I awoke to a strange noise - the sound of my growling tummy. I was hungry!

"Well, you'd better get up and eat something before you wake your wife."

So I wandered out to the kitchen, bouncing from wall to wall as I went . . . at 1:27 in the morning. I opened up the refrigerator door and grabbed some juice, set it on the stove. Then I went over to the cereal / cracker cabinet which seemed more empty tan normal. The only thing that seemed palatable to this sick-o was Saltine crackers. Kind of blah but that's what I was looking for.

As I placed the crackers on the stove next to the juice I looked and saw this picture.

"26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes." - 1 Corinthians 11:26

And so . . . I prayed.

I asked God to forgive me for all of the times I have placed myself above Him; thought of my own needs before those of my King. I prayed for this world, which is so full of itself it doesn't have time for ANY gods, let alone the One True God. I prayed that Jesus would return soon. Imagine, a life without colds!!!

"Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
- Revelation 21:1-5
