Food & Flood

This was what became of the garlic cloves that grew inside the crisper in 2018.

If you’re one of the ‘outcasts’ and can’t enjoy a cup of coffee at your favorite cafe, bring the cafe vibe to your house. The only thing to do is actually have your family sit at the table together if you don’t do that already. I must admit that there is definitely something special about enjoying your favorite brew elsewhere, but I don’t consider it something to truly fret about. I do understand it’s really more about being restricted to go to a certain place when something like this used to be inconceivable in the land of the free.

I got entangled with bargain hunting for new equipment yesterday and before I knew it, it was too late to write something. It’s amazing how some people can sell stuff without even testing it for functionality. One asserted it was in full working order even though it’s been dead for quite some time. Another one backtracked on an offer, but at this time, it’s understandable. We all just want to make ends meet.

As for today, the skies were blue which allowed for a recording of a Bewick’s Wren for the first time.

I initially thought this was a Brown Creeper, but the banded tail was an indicator it wasn’t. It has such a pleasant and cute call. In a couple of months God-willing, it would mark the first year anniversary of when I started to watch birds.

We proceeded to go to a park by the river and saw that there was no access to get by the water. It was flooded! You can see how it looked like last year here. Too much rainfall swallowed up the trail area and wondering when it will recede.

There are a couple of instances in the Book of Revelation that speaks of moving and disappearing landmass. It has to do with the catastrophic bombardments of the heavenly bodies falling from the sky.

“And when I saw the Lamb open the sixth seal, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black like sackcloth of goat hair, and the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

Revelation 6:12-14

Another one can be found in Revelation 16:20,

“Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found.”

Since this is a prophecy about God’s wrath on humanity, this depiction is literal and not allegory. This wrath will come upon those who refuse to humble themselves and turn to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.

“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.”

Isaiah 45:22 NIV

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:6 NIV
