Joel 2:31 Blogs - JenJo MySpace Blog

"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come." Joel 2:31
That scripture came to mind tonight as I was driving home from Lance's.  I'll explain...
Currently, and all day long, the mountain just across Utah Lake, west from here has been on fire.  During the day all you can really see is smoke. It is almost 2am now, thus it is dark.  Well... practically that entire mountain is blazing right now, and you can see the yellow-orange flames.  I tried to take a detour on the way home so I could drive closer to it and watch the fire, but all those roads are closed for construction.  I did get close enough to see the actual movement of the fire.  ...It is so gorgeous.  Anyhow, while driving I caught a glimpse of the moon in my rearview.  The moon was just north of this blazing mountain, and the moon was blood red.  I hurried up and got home as fast as possible so I could get my camera to take a picture.  Because boy... was this pretty.  This blazing, yellow-orange mountain and a blood red moon was something I've definately never seen before!  Well, my pictures didn't really turn out very well... but I did stand and stare at the moon for a bit.  It actually changed colors, it went from a pale orange, to a deep orange to a dark red.  It was very fascinating.
The scripture came to my mind when I first saw that the moon was red.  It occurred to me that the sun has been "turned into darkness" and the moon into "blood" or at least, the color of blood.  The funny thing about scripture is that sometimes it's figurative, and sometimes it's litteral!  But, in this case I'm assuming/hoping the scripture is figurative.  Thus, the sun went down, so it has been "turned to darkness" and the fire reflecting off of the moon has caused it to appear red, or "into blood."   Quite interesting, the way scripture describes things, isn't it?  I'm not necessarily saying.... oh looky... this prophecy is fulfilled, the end is near.  But the scripture was just a thought that popped into my head. 
In that "great and terrible" day, when the Lord comes again, there's supposed to be fires and earthquakes and just a whole bunch of terrible things.  So maybe, when he comes, the fires will be reflecting off of the moon while the sun is down and make it appear red. 
But then does say "...*before* the great and the terrible day..."

Bridal Shower Blogs - JenJo MySpace Blog

Shared via AddThis

I had my bridal shower on Saturday.  It was really cute.  They had a liuau theme.  How do you spell liuau?  Anyway, they made me wear this flower bra thing and a grass skirt, and a lei of pink habiscus flowers.  We ate chicken, and potato salad, and fuit and chips, mmm!  My mom took some pictures, but I'm not on my laptop right now so I can't post them yet.  Laura's husband is working to fix mine, which is so nice of him!
I got a lot of nice gifts at the shower and I just want to say thanks to everyone who came for giving Lance and I their support...unless they just came for the food... Haha.
Less than 3 weeks left!

The Used Blogs - JenJo MySpace Blog

Shared via AddThis

I heart The Used!
I finally bought their latest album: Lies for the Liars.  Is it as good as I had hoped?  YES!  They have 3 songs that are solely about lovey dovey things, and a few slight references to love or girls in other songs, so I'm wondering... has Bert fallen in love? Hmm...  Anyhow, I've added one of the songs from this CD to Lance's and my Wedding Mix to be played at our reception.  So if you come to our reception, keep an ear out for it.  It's pretty amazing!
I also bought...ahem *cough* *cough* O-Town...*cough*  Yeah, big mistake.  Does anyone remember them?  They were that one band that was created on a TV show.  Band?  Can I call them a band?  No.  They are a singing group, and a mightily poor one at that.  All their songs are about sex. But whatever...  I feel bad for whoever has paid full price for this p.o.s album... I only paid $4, and I'm regretting it horribly.
Thanks for taking time out of your life, to visit mine!
