COME, COME INTO THE SILENT STIR OF LIFE

I gladly invite you to come with me into the silent Joy of Advent.

“Advent is a time of waiting, of expectations, of silence.  Waiting for our Lord to be born.”

“A pregnant woman is so happy, so content.  She lives in such a garment of silence, and it is as though she were listening to hear the stir of life within her.”

“One always hears that stirring compared to the rustling of a bird in the hand.  But the intentness with which one awaits such stirring is like nothing so much as a blanket of silence.”

Dorothy Day

Last year after Christmas I was clothed with a silent pain from a freak accident working in my yard ripping the front of my left leg.  I’ve spent this entire year grateful I did not lose my limb; my scar is dissipating. Praise the Lord, for he has healed me from head to toe and all I want is to shout and dance!

How has Christ come into your world?

How has he made you a believer?

How has his death changed you?

How are you preparing for Judgment Day?

In choosing to live joyfully this Advent, let us:

“Put on the Lord Jesus Christ.”  —Romans 13:14

INFUSING US WITH LOVE

Crown of the King of the Universe

“A simple grateful thought turned heavenwards is the most perfect prayer.”

–Doris Lessing

Ordinary time rushes in an Advent flow for Joy, then comes Peace settling into a better new year.  This is a standing invitation for the world community to gather together.  Let us wrap ourselves with the strength of Christ.  Let us cling to his majesty for everything that we need.

The aroma of Jesus is the Kingdom of God infused with Love.”

–Father Michael Payyapilly, VC

MIGHTY WISDOM

Divine Wisdom by Shiloh Sophia McCloud

“In Wisdom is a spirit intelligent, holy, unique, subtle, agile, clear, unstained, certain…

Firm, secure, tranquil, all powerful, all seeing and pervading all spirits…

“For she is an aura of the might of God, the spotless mirror of the power of God, the image of his goodness…

“And passing into holy souls from age to age, she produces friends of God and prophets…

“For she is fairer than the sun and surpasses every constellation of the stars, but wickedness prevails not over Wisdom…

“Indeed, she reaches from end to end mightily and governs all things well.”

–Wisdom 7:22b-8:1

May I bless you in this new week with all the holy attributes of Wisdom upon you and your loved ones, Amen.

ART OF PLENTY

“Write in your heart that every day is the best day of the years.”

–Ralph Waldo Emerson

The art of plenty does not measure selfishness or greed.  Rather, plenty, or abundance, highlights life as it is now.  This second, as I write, allows one to celebrate the potential of this minute, especially with surprises.  Gifts that God wants to shower us with, to make our soul beam with a ha-ha moment.  The art of plenty celebrates life itself with an enthusiasm for the unknown to reveal a plenty meant just for you and me.  Are you ready to receive plenty?

FINDING LIFE RICH

Les Vosges Mountains, France

For me, Sunday is rich and mysterious – a day just to breathe in the scenery of life; to thank God for His goodness and abundance on everyone.  Like David, I shall dance before the Lord with all my might. (2 Samuel 6:14)

I hope you will find time to do what you really want to do today and throughout this new week.

God Bless You!

SEA OF FORGETFULNESS

“If you make a mistake you can start all over again, like building sand castles.”

–Annika Wallendahl

What an amazing quote to ring in a new birthday year!

Do you know that beside the glassy sea in heaven, there is a “sea of forgetfulness.”  That is what Kat Kerr, Revelator for God, speaks about with Steve Shultz on ElijahStreams YouTube.  For sure, my ears perked up for more knowledge.  A sea where God tosses our forgiven mistakes no longer remembered by Him nor should we.  As I turn to a new page in my life on tomorrow, I am reassured that all prior mistakes no longer exist and any future ones will be thrown away fully repented to God.

“God speaks to us in the tomorrow, which is perfect, where there is no sin.  The prophetic is tomorrow’s science.”

–Prophet Robin D. Bullock

I certainly welcome this promises in the coming year.

According to Robin, “The promises of God are always “Yes, Amen.”

I gladly echo Robin in exclaiming, “God is  absolutely good.” 

May this new week fill your heart with all of God’s promises.
