Changes and Eternity
While reading the following story, I am reminded of how God never changes. As Jesus assures us in Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
MELTING BORDERS from http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090819/ap_on_re_eu/eu_switzerland_italy_melting_border BERN, Switzerland – Switzerland has expanded its border at Italy's expense because of melting glaciers in the high Alps. The Swiss government on Wednesday approved shifting the border up to 150 meters (164 yards) into Italian territory in some areas. The changes were made after the Swiss Federal Office of Topography found that the watershed which determined the border in 1942 had moved because of melting glaciers and snow fields. Topographer Daniel Gutknecht says Switzerland has become "a little bit" larger but added "we won't be correcting the atlas." The Italian embassy in Bern said the change has already been approved by Rome. The shift moves the final stop of the Furggsattel Sesselbahn ski station near the famed Matterhorn peak onto Swiss territory.
That's me away then.
