Lunar Eclipse

Image
On April 4th, 2015 some of my family and I were able to witness a lunar eclipse. Also called a blood moon (as talked about in the Bible), this eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its shadow. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_eclipse). Here in Minnesota, we were only able to see a partial eclipse because of the rising sun, but in September we will be able to witness a total red moon, the last lunar eclipse of the tetrad (four blood moons). You might already be aware of this, but did you know that "lunar" is Latin for "moon"? I love finding Latin words in our English language :)!

   Here's a time-lapsed photo of the eclipse (at least my first attempt...). Each picture was taken individually, but then I used picmonkey.com (an awesome, free photo editor!) to turn it into one.

From Mark 15:21-39 (NIV):      21A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross. 22They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means “the place of the skull”). 23Then they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it. 24And they crucified him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots to see what each would get.      25 It was nine in the morning when they crucified him. 26 The written notice of the charge against him read: THE KING OF THE JEWS. 27They crucified two rebels with him, one on his right and one on his left. [28]29Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, 30come down from the cross and save yourself!”  31In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save hi…

Stand Up For Jesus

Image
So sad, yet so true.....

     I encourage you to stand up for the LORD today and everyday. Stay faithful to Him no matter how difficult the situation! Trust Him. He will give you all the strength you need!
Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross; Lift high His royal banner, it must not suffer loss.
From victory unto victory His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished, and Christ is Lord indeed.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, stand in His strength alone; The arm of flesh will fail you, ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the Gospel armor, each piece put on with prayer;
Where duty calls or danger, be never wanting there.
