Job 42:12‑17  – “So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.”  “He had also seven sons and three daughters.”  “And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.”  “And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.”  “After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations.”  “So Job died, being old and full of days.”


-There are two words which musicians use to describe the increase or decrease of a tone.  The words Crescendo indicates an increase in tone, depth, strength, and volume.  The word Minuendo describes the weakening of a note or voice until it dies into a small whisper.

-Those two words fittingly represent God and the creature.  God is always rising to the occasion and heightening in His majesty.  However, the poor creature, man, is always dwindling into a sense of weakness and failure of itself.

-The Laws of Thermodynamics were discovered in the 19th century and the application of these laws have brought us many amenities to this life.  Automobiles, airplanes, jets, turbines, even nuclear power.
