Silent Lamb

A lamb, when it is chased by a predator has no defense but to run and bleat until caught. It then gives up and lies down in silence. In like manner, Jesus, the Lamb of God, was silent throughout the interviews, trials, and crucifixion. He was abandoned by His Father in heaven so that we don't need to be abandoned.

I have been silenced but I can still pray in my mind and speak through my blog, and the Lord hears and answers me. Amazing the thought that God simultaneously hears the prayers and thoughts of billions of His people and answers them all in His time and manner.

New Helper!

Good help is so hard to find.

Yet, we have a new PSW who is such a great help - and he's even Dutch (and quite a cutie!) 









PS. For all those concerned, Lucas did not dump my Dad right out of his chair :)

Room Prepared



I was reminded in a recent pastoral visit by Pastor Pronk that just as my earthly tabernacle is slowly coming down, the flip side is also true; a room is being prepared for me by Jesus my Saviour. As soon as that room is ready, then I will go there to be with Him.

It is getting very difficult for me to write posts, but I will still try.

Union and Communion

We had a Holy Communion service in our church, but I could not attend. But I could celebrate union and communion with Christ at home in my chair. I was comforted by the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29), also my sin.

In sweet communion Lord with Thee
I constantly abide,
My hand Thou holdest in Thine own
To keep me near Thy side.

Psalter 203:1
