“”Sometimes there is no next time, no time-outs, and no second chances.  Sometimes it’s now or never.”

–Alan Bennett

For me two forks in the road presented themselves as now or never.  The first was whether or not to return to America after working in Europe for 10 years…at the urgency of my family.  Eight years later, John and I fell in love.  Both turn of events proved now or never, with no regrets and greater dreams ahead than when we started –Woo-hoo!

I wonder, what feels like it’s ‘now or never’ in your life?

“Search for Me as for hidden treasure.  I will be found by you.”

“Return to me with your whole heart. for gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and relenting in punishment.”

–Joel 2:12-13

We can improve on forgiveness by following these thoughts:

  • Recognizing the problem
  • Do something to diminish it
  • Recall how good it feels to forgive others
  • Make serious effort to be humble, because we all have faults.

What are your suggestions?

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.  Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

–Marie Curie

If you answer, yes, you are more likely to be positive, passionate and joyful.  Someone who is bold and unforgettable is fierce-some with the challenge of overcoming any fears.  I have had many occasions to be fierce in my life.  The courage I needed at each instant came from my merciful Lord who empowered me to forge beyond unimaginable sorrows…and gratefully do I stand tall.

I hope you see yourself as fierce-some against any fears that may limit you.  In so doing, empowering yourself will empower others to do the same.  Being dynamic and surprising will inspire excellence.

February 2023 – the season to break the global yoke off all peoples.

“We cannot live in a world that is interpreted for us by others.”

“Part of the terror is to take back our own listening.  To use our own voice.  To see our own light.”

“We shall awaken from our dullness and rise vigorously towards justice.”

“If we fall in love with creation deeper and deeper, we will respond to its endangerment with passion.”

These statements come from Hildegarde of Bingen, a 12 C, Renaissance prophet.  How timely is her wisdom for us to apply in these tumultuous days.

“2023 – is the battlefield of the Glory of God to come!”

Robin D. Bullock, Prophet
