Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. (Luke 12:35)

Be dressed and ready for service and keep you lamps burning bright.

Be ready for the Masters return, be it day or night.


He has gone to a wedding and when he returns he will knock upon your door.

For those he finds watching for him bountiful blessings are in store.


But if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief would break in.

He would not have allowed his house to broken into… he would not be caught in sin.


Be aware that the Master will return at a time when you do not expect.

He will reward those who keep their lamps trimmed but come not for those who are derelict.

Dear Lew,

We serve our Creator when we serve Creation. Let us be caught in the act of random acts of kindness.

Love & Light always and in all ways,

Watching and waiting...
Until then, He is with all who put their trust in Him for salvation.
They can wait, knowing that day is surely coming
when they shall see Him face to face.
