PRAISE THE LORD!

Dear Kent,

I stumbled on to that picture of the guy getting (either in our out of his car), from the bottom up of your blogger page. And I had FOX NEWS on another frame, which I was perusing at the time. And I thought: "That looks like Jeff!" And then I read, "My Brother," which was at the top of the page. And, WOW! And when I saw the pictures of both you and Jeff, smilling, side by side, as they appear here today, I thought to myself: "I wonder if even I would be THAT good looking too --what with a full-blown mop of hair like you two seem to have in the pictures." :-) --Dad

PRAISE THE LORD!

Dear Kent,

"O my son Absalom, O Absalom, my son, my son! (Wow! How handsome he must have been even to the King, 2 Samuel 19:4)

25 "But in all Israel there was none to be so much praised as Absalom for his beauty: from the sole of his foot even to the crown of his head there was no blemish in him.
26 And when he polled his head, (for it was at every year's end that he polled it: because the hair was heavy on him, therefore he polled it:) he weighed the hair of his head at two hundred shekels after the king's weight." (2 Samuel 14:25, 26).

Potiphar's house regarding Joseph: "So he left in Joseph’s care everything he had; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate.
Now Joseph was well-built and handsome," (Genesis 39:5 and 6)

Kish's son, SAUL: "He had a son named Saul, an impressive young man without equal among the Israelites—a head taller than any of the others." (1 Samuel 9:2)

6And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD's anointed is before him.

"7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart." (The LORD'S Opinion of Eliab compared to Samuel's, 1 Samuel 16:6 And 7)

Peter speaks of godly women who represent the Church, the Bride of Christ, in type: "But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price." (1 Peter 3:4) --Dad
