Today's Scripture: "five bars for the boards on the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the side of the tabernacle, for the far side westward." Ex 26:27

See it.


Live it.

It's interesting to me that the tabernacle, as well as the Temple to be, was setup pointing magnetic east toward the rising sun at time of Passover. This is verified in many places in Scripture, but our verse confirms westward as the far side of the tabernacle. In Memphis Tennessee, the westward line of the city is called Mud Island and will mark a special place for drunks and druggies to party this month.

Today is the first day of May and marks the first of thirty-one festive days called Memphis in May. It is highlighted by music, art, barbecue and beer and always has one distinction that sets it apart. That would be the amount of rainfall that turns the ground under drunken party goers to mud. Hence, it's not surprising the last two days in April have been marked with torrential rain, wind and floods. What a great and symbolical beginning to the "Memphis in Mud" celebration on Mud Island.

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for pointing out where not to go and what not to do.
