Alpha and Omega

"I am the Alpha and Omega," says the Lord God, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."  Revelation 1:8

Today we celebrated Easter.  All of our family went to church together and afterwards had dinner there.  Lola, my granddaughter, got to hunt eggs with several other toddlers.  

My oldest daughter got engaged earlier in the week and we were able to visit and see her ring.  She was very excited and happy.  We really like her fiance.  He called her dad a week ago and asked to come over for a man-to-man chat.  They got together and he asked permission to ask Melissa to marry him.  

Time really seems to fly these days.  They will be getting married next year in April.  Lots of time to plan the wedding.

When I was a child we had a large family Bible that I would read.  There was a passage that always intrigued me.  It was from the book of Revelations chapter 1 verse 3:  "Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it;  for the time is near."  At the time I was especially interested to know that I would be blessed for just reading the Bible.
