To nice to see Christmas the crab has rejoined us in society! He was molting again, I thought the worse, but the clue to know if they are still alive is that they don’t stink from rotting…
That’s us too – 2nd Corinthians 2:14-15 – to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
I’m awake for this day after 2nd vaccination day with aches and pains, OUCH, they are REAL, but they are worth it – slept about 5 hours waking up like 5 times… I just had a cup of tea, did a yoga stretching and the endorphins from stretching were great. Thankfully my brain is intact, it’s just my muscles like I gardened all day, which I didn’t… like each stretch is good relief… I heard the crab and remembered that he takes LOTS of downtime to regenerate his body, and he does look better, as if he only did half a molt last time, finished it now. That blue giant claw looks much better.
I heard him clanking in his aquarium. I brought him a carrot. He was drinking water so that’s a great sign, having thought he was a goner… Now he’s back!!! Yay!
Our short lives reminds me of scriptures that our time is but a blip of time. But our spirit renews.
Isaiah 40: 6 “All people are like grass, and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”
2 Corinthians 4:16. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
2 Corinthians 5:17. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
Psalm 51:10-12 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
2 Corinthians 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
