You know what I think is really neat? When you're reading a book and then you go to church and get a re-emphasis of the message from the book? I'm reading "The Shack" again after several years since first reading it. (Excellent, excellent book by William Paul Young.) I was reading it this morning and … Continue reading Love One Another…
I believe if there was more hugging, praying and listening to one another, there would be less hatred, bigotry, judgment, and violence. It is very difficult to hug and pray for someone and continue to hate them or fear them. You see them as they truly are, a person, just like you, with faults, foibles, … Continue reading Hugs and Prayers
I was reading Guideposts this morning and came across a quote so profound, I felt I had to share it and some other thoughts I have on the matter. Here is the quote: "Our hands are really servants of our thoughts, so if you want to understand what you're thinking, watch what your hands are … Continue reading What Are Your Hands Doing?
Discombobulated, anxious, all because of a twelve-pound dog who found me at a truck stop ten years ago and made me fall in love. While he's in surgery, it's like I'm at the hospital waiting room in 1986, while my mom is having open heart surgery. Love isn't reasonable or logical. It just is. When … Continue reading Discombobulated
Ok, this may sound a little weird, but hang with me for just a little bit. I've been away from my home for 16 days, in other countries, having the time of my life. I left behind one of the very best friends I've ever had in my life and he only weighs 12 pounds … Continue reading Foot Washing and Love
The link below is to a blog that I follow regularly. The author's name is Susan Irene Fox and she describes herself as a fairly new Christian. I like what she writes, but this morning her post struck me as exactly what I've been thinking and praying about lately. There is so much judgement in … Continue reading Sharing A Blog Post I Found Remarkable
My love and I wander along the rose path of life, sweet smelling, but also bearing possible thorns. We walk on through the full summer night. Moon shines on the ancient mountain and we hear the murmur of the river behind us. We are quiet, but slowly, a happy seed blossoms, which will grow between … Continue reading Walking Among the Seasons|NaPoWriMo Day 29
I drew the queen of hearts again, and won the game of Spades, it really wasn't skill, but pure luck that it was made. I've always loved the queen of hearts, she's very dear to me, because I have a lover's heart, with deep love and empathy. I feel another's love, elation, and their pain, … Continue reading Queen of Hearts|NaPoWriMo Day 24
"See the poem I wrote today?" She grinned at me and said. I looked at her in wonder, and slowly shook my head. How could she be so naive and even worse so glad? She was just too young to see, how the world was oh so bad. Then she handed me her little poem, … Continue reading The Little Poet|NaPoWriMo Day 22
I just watched a video on Facebook that showed a series of clips where people would stop and help another person who obviously needed help, such as a person who had fallen or was having problems crossing a busy street. Several, ok, most people just went around them. In each of the clips there was … Continue reading Love One Another, Start a Revolution!!
