Well, to finish up yesterday, we watched Matilda, the girls and I. Seporah asked, she really likes it. I ended the day in prayer, and slept.
This morning I awoke with prayer, read the readings of the day. From Timothy 3: “God was monifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.” Beautiful Trinitarian expression. “Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by giving heed to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, … who enjoin abstinence from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving; for then it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.”
Matthew 3:1-6 was the gospel reading, and from it I just remembered that one of the two central teachings of Christ was first declared (in the new testament) by John the forerunner: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, a sinner.
This morning my mom came over and watched Star Wars, The Force Awakens with me and the kiddos. It was all of our 3rd times watching the movie, although the first time we had seen it together. I just noticed for the first time that Rey had been dreaming of Luke, or at least where he was. I really like the movie, infinitely better than the new movies, and right on par with the original trilogy.
Right now I am watching UFC 195. I am 0-5 with my picks so far. =) Tonight is just not my night.
