Hope you're having an awesome, praise-filled day tomorrow! I'm actually writing this yesterday, which is today to me! But today to you is tomorrow to me today, which will make today yesterday! (I actually thought about doing this yesterday which is the day before yesterday to you but I thought it might be more confusing...)
Let's see... What happened on this date...
Gertrude Ederle became the first woman to swim the English Channel in 1926...Hmmm...They'd already invented the motor boat by then. Wonder what that was all about?
Bob Mathias won the decathlon in the '48 London Olympics! Pole vaulted right onto the Wheaties box!
1945..."Keith Miller scored 110 in the 4 Victory Test Cricket match at Lord's!!!" Amazing!!! ...apparently.
Lucille Ball was born on this date...
So was "American boot-legger, Dutch Schultz" in 1902...
And on this date, August 6, 1180, the Emperor of Japan, Go-Toba was born
Wait a sec...
I'm not in there...
I was born on this date in 1954!
Today ( yesterday to you) is my birthday...huh...wonder why it isn't in there...
You have to be famous!! I forgot "that bit" (as the Brits would say!)
But in all humility, I would like to add this...
They did have a party for me in heaven!
Not on my birthday, but on my second-birthday!
My "second- birthday" doesn't mean when I turned two in 1955, but in October 1974 when I was born spiritually, or as St John says it, when I was "born again"! When we believed in Jesus, we were born into God's kingdom and family! Our life started over! Just like when you were born the first time...only loads better!
And Luke said that Jesus said that on that day, there was "rejoicing in heaven"!! " 'Let us eat and celebrate! For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.' And they began to celebrate!" (Luke 15: 23-24)
It wasn't a surprise party either! The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit knew that day was coming before the world was even made!
Flying angel choirs...standing ovations from saints already there...A parrrrrty!!
I bet Go-Toba knew how to throw an emperial birthday party for himself, but it was nothing like the one they threw for you the day you were born...again!
Someone said that stars are actually holes in the sky where the party lights shine thru!
