Clouds or sunshine. . .

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. 
Ecclesiastes 3:1

Sunny days or cloudy days; a season to rejoice, a season to mourn,. . .a time for every purpose under the heavens. . .just as the Lord has ordained.  May you bask in the light of the Lord this day and may you look forward to that eternal day when clouds and sun will be no more!
 "And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb." Revelation 21:23 

When the Roll is Called Up Yonder
James Black, 1893

When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and time shall be no more,
And the morning breaks, eternal, bright and fair;
When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore,
And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.
On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,
And the glory of His resurrection share;
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.

Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done,
And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #116

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! And, if you use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing one to two creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. All submissions must be added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, July 22 at 8 p.m. EST. Complete details are available on the ODBD blog.
