WHEN GOD ASKS…

“When God asks us a question, he desires us to be knit to His soul.”

–Prophet Robin D. Bullock

I replied, wow! to this question, remembering all the special encounters with the Living God.  Then I heard Him ask further:

“Do you consider yourself a disciple?”

Of course, I replied.

Saint Paul writing to the Romans 10:9-18, speaks of this calling to discipleship.

“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news!  Their voice has gone forth to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.”

It’s easy to pocket our discipleship for a rainy day.  Constantly giving away the good news is the better part…to become God’s butler.

DECEMBER, THE BEST SAVED FOR LAST

Christmas Lore and Traditions

Whatever the weather on Christmas will foretell the weather for the coming new year..

A green Christmas will cover Easter white.

If windy on Christmas, trees will bear much fruit in Spring.

If ice hangs on tree limbs on Christmas day, there will grow clover so tall to cut by Easter.

Just some December lore…what is most important is how you celebrate Winter, the holidays and welcoming a new year with family and friends.

Will you bake cookies, make an evergreen candle centerpiece for your table, visit your local nursing home or buy a secret Santa gift for needy children in the neighborhood? — the possibilities are endless and a wonderful way to spread Christmas cheer all around you.

“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:  the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”

–Burton Mills

I’m delighted that this year my husband’s niece wants to host the family for Christmas dinner and I will bring Swedish meatballs that they all like.

Praise God for December and everything that makes it sparkle and precious to everyone. 

A RE-BLOG POST Bravery

O Isabella, another marvelous post revealing you precious soul…so that I can re-blog it here for others to enjoy…Merci!

Redressed

The picture above shows my level of courage. Not very impressive is it? Then again, I am not here to impress. Rather, try to spread some humble love.

Perchance chance brought you here to me, or maybe precisely your presence is somehow meant to be. Either way with you here the words will make sense and for that I want to thank you. Hopefully I can move you with these letters combined, but before we move on let me declare; I love you. You see if people can hate for no reason, I can love for no reason.

Time for the two of us to see where all of this reasoning takes us. Do you believe in a creator that is Love? I do, but I have some fragile parts. Not with the believing part because I know with one hundred percent certainty that there is a creator. After all…

SOMETHING ABOUT WINTER

“Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.”

–Steven Wright

“December’s wintery breath is already clouding the pond, frosting the pane, obscuring summer’s memory.”

–John J. Geddes

I hope you feel secure knowing that Jesus is always with you!

Safe and secure from all alarms is how I must feel now knowing a loved relative lives with health issues.  I choose to believe that Jesus will keep us from harm.

“I keep my eyes always on the Lord.  With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”

–Psalm 16:8

May you be safe and secure from all alarms going forward.

REMOVING DEAD ENERGY OUT OF LIFE

Where there is clutter, there is unrest.

The change of seasons helps me to declutter my life starting with all the closets.  Removing everything out prevents me from holding on to all things unnecessary, while perhaps rediscovering a forgotten treasure.  The time taken to declutter my possessions gives away what might become a treasure to a stranger.  A good deed done.

Another way to declutter is in the mind – to make an honest decision – shift a personal and spiritual approach to live a higher level of confidence…way beyond covid.

Echoing the words of Steven Wright:

I intend to live forever; so far so good.”

Whatever decluttering needs to happen, just do it!

You will remove dead energy out of your life and be liberated.

Advent is perfect for decluttering, don’t you think?

IN THIS DREAM

Winter Dreaming

“When you know how much God is in love with you, then you can only dream your life radiating that love.”

Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Beams of brightness hurl darkness to the side

Seeing two rivers side by side

The Jordan winding calmly

The other gushing forth to the heavens and rising steadily

Seeing the river of life

Forever, it flows ripples of life.

Advent begins anew.

The Lord of heaven and earth” is all there is” for us.

–Anne Husted Burleigh

Renewing myself, I am ready for eternity to meet history at Bethlehem.  What are plans, desires and hopes?  Are you ready?
