Blue Moon

This is Sunday, August 25.  This month will present us with a second full moon in the same month.  This is officially known as the blue moon.  In a sense, it is a portend (omen) for the season following.  It is bringing summer to a close and announces the onset of autumn.  I noticed the trees at the lake yesterday were beginning to change colors.  The is the handiwork of the Divine.
We are also in the 7th day of the 6th month on the Hebrew calendar.  This is called "Elul", and is translated as worthless.  This is the final month before the Feast of Trumpets or Tabernacles (tents). In Elul, mankind is expected to examine his heart, his direction, his actions, etc to see if he needs to make changes, in order to please God.  God has his laws, expects man to obey them, or not, at his own peril. 
We bring upon our own heads all troubles in our life. 
Out of time.  Gotta get some folks to church.  Bless you
