LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WASTE – EMBELLISHED

Thanks to Kamal at Boundlessblessings.blog, I can embellish this post with her good thoughts as a Haiku:

Within us the book

Is not fully opened

To reveal its treasures

Goodness rests not on things but on how we use things.

“We search the world for truth, we cull

The good, the true, the beautiful,

From graven stone and written scroll,

And all old flower-fields of the soul;

And, weary seekers of the best,

We come back laden from our quest,

To find that all the sages said

Is in the Book our mothers read.”

WORDS HAVE POWER

Special words like love, grace and forgiveness emit invisible power in variable measures to grow faith just like a sprouting sheaf of wheat.

As I woke up this morning three words stirred me out of bed to open the Bible.  Where is this?  “Whatsoever you do…”

“Whatsoever you do to the least of my Brothers.  The King will reply, truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

–Matthew 25:40

Like a robust taste of coffee, I receive these words with a desire to help someone who cannot return such a favor.  An act of giving shall be how I respond to “Whatsoever you do.”

Have you heard a special message from God today to act upon?  Let us cherish what He places in the heart.

“I HAVE NO ONE”

One need not be secluded into the desert to experience union with God.

I am reminded that when I look into a mirror, my reflection is illusive.  But if I open my mind, I can open my heart to see the lonely person in a crowd.  The Spirit brought persons I should contact, and following this prompting, I learned that these persons just needed someone to break up their loneliness.  Their cry of “I have no one” filled my desire for God without having to go into a desert.  As servant, their desert filled me with awe.
