-- Nathaniel Hawthorne -
Died May 19, 1864
Born July 4, 1804
Renowned Author. He was a descendent of prominent early New
England settlers. His father, also Nathaniel, was a sea
captain and descendent of John Hawthorne, one of the judges
in the Salem witchcraft trials of 1692. He died when the
young Nathaniel was four year old. Hawthorne grew up in
seclusion with his widowed mother Elizabeth - and for the
rest of her life they relied on each other for emotional
solace. His most famous work was "The Scarlet Letter,"
published in 1850. His other novels were, "Fanshawe," "The
House of the Seven Gables," "The Blithedale Romance," and
"The Marble Faun." His short stories include, "Twice-Told
Tales," "Mosses From An Old Manse," and "Tanglewood Tales."
Hawthorne was one of the first American writers to explore
the hidden motivations of his characters. Among his alleg-
orical stories is "The Artist of the Beautiful" (1844) in
which his protagonist creates an insect, perhaps a steam-
driven butterfly.

"It is marvelous to consider the amount of information we carry about in our
heads. Think for a minute about all of the numbers you have by memory:
phone numbers, birthdays and ID numbers, zip codes, appointment times and
so forth. Among our many numbers are some so inscribed in our minds with
permanent marker that we could not forget the number anymore than we could
forget the person or thing they represent. The significance moves well
beyond the boldfaced digits themselves—the birth of a child, the death of
a loved one, the street number of the house you grew up in, the number of
times you failed before you finally passed the test.

A friend remembered recently the kind of number that is quite natural for
most people to forget about, even as it is one that quietly holds for me
more than I can put into words. But like the number itself, her
remembering was more than a recollection of detail. It was distinctly as
if she remembered me.

In the days of Mordecai and Queen Esther the people set themselves to
remember the days when they received relief from their enemies, the month
that had been turned "from sorrow into gladness and from mourning into a
holiday" (see Esther 9). And so it was determined: "These days of Purim
should never cease to be celebrated by the Jews, nor should the memory of
them die out among their descendants" (Esther 9:28). The days were
weighted with enough hope to press upon them the need to remember them
forever. Moreover, they saw the certain possibility that they might

I suppose there are moments in our lives when we realize that we are
beholding the carving of a day into the great tree of history. On the
night before my wedding I scribbled anxiously in my journal, "It will
never be this day again, but the seventeenth of every August will never be
the same either." I knew from that day forward it would be difficult (and
detrimental) to forget that day on the calendar—it would carry the force
of forgetting so much more.

God told the Israelites that they would remember the night of Passover
before the night even happened. "This day shall be for you a memorial
day, and you shall keep it as a feast to the LORD; throughout your
generations, as a statute forever, you shall keep it as a feast" (Exodus
12:14). Moses and Aaron were given instructions to tell the whole
community of Israel to choose a lamb without defect, slaughtering it at
twilight. Then they were to take some of the blood and put it on the
doorposts of the houses. "The blood will be a sign," the LORD declared.
"And when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague
will touch you when I strike the firstborns of Egypt."

Celebrating the Passover was nonnegotiable, and with good reason. It was
a command passed down from generation to generation: "Remember this day
as a statute forever." But just as we remember more than the wedding itself
on an anniversary or the act of birth on a child's birthday, the Israelites were
remembering more than the events of Israel's exodus from Egypt; they were
remembering God Himself—the faithful hand that moved and moves among
them, the mighty acts that shout of God's timely remembering of his people.

As the disciples sat around the table celebrating their third Passover
meal with Jesus, an observance they kept before they could walk,
everything probably looked ceremoniously familiar. The smell of lamb
filled the upper room; the unleavened bread was prepared and waiting
to be broken. Remembering again the acts of God in Egypt, the blood on
the doorposts, the lives spared and brought out of slavery, they looked
at their teacher as he lifted the bread from the table and gave thanks to
God. Then Jesus broke the bread, and gave it to them, saying something
entirely new. "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of

I have always wished that Luke would have described a little more of the
scene that followed. Did a hush immediate fall over the room? Were
the disciples once again confused at his words? Or did their years of
envisioning the blood-marked doorposts cry out at the Lamb without
defect before them?

They had spent their entire lives remembering the sovereignty of God in
the events of the Passover and then Jesus tells them that there is yet
more to see in this day on the calendar. "In this Passover lamb, in this
the broken bread is the reflection of me. As you remember God in history,
so remember me. For on this day God is engraving across all of time the
promise of Passover: I still remember you."

From that day forward the disciples knew it would be difficult to forget
that day on the calendar. May we also be wary of missing all that weights
that moment with hope. For indeed, to forget what was witnessed in the
upper room on that Passover in history carries the force of forgetting so
much more. Jill Carattini

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
