Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Birth, Life, Death, ?

This little hairbell is exhibiting almost all the functions of living. Seeds are being formed, the plant is enjoying the life it has been given (if plants can, in effect, enjoy things). Some of the flowers, though pretty, are dwindling out already. In effect the plant has a "lifetime" of a few short months. The seeds will go on to reproduce another plant, and another cycle.

This existence is very much like the human one. We are born, live our "three score and ten", recede and die.

There the similarity stops. All people on earth, no matter where they are in our world, have basic beliefs in a higher being. This is true all throughout history.

When you have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, have repented of your sins, and have been baptised in water, then you are promised through the Word of God that there will be eternal life.

Everyday, I am thankful of being alive, having accepted the Promise, and look forward to the life after death.

I don't know about you, but I am thankful that I am not a plant, with nothing to look forward to.
