A new Celebration

Yesterday i celebrated another year. It began rather pensive and changed to contemplative. Then it changed to celebrative.  I think that we need emphatic witnesses to celebrate with us.  That is what we all need.  One line from a movie, Shall We Dance?  We need a witness to our life.  Relationships are so important, especially when God brings people together.  Celebrate! I celebrate you!  Enough for now.

Yes, I'm Sick of It

Just because I don't talk about the shutdown does not mean I am not concerned.  As a retired union rep my thought is to make sure we vote correctly next time.  Get everyone out and make closer checks on who we put in. Take some time to get background before you vote  Yeah, I said it.  The sad part about it is that someone who has never 'had to work to live' cannot possibly understand the majority of Americans.  What can we do now?  Oh, make calls to your representative, plenty of them. Send letters.  Send emails.  Express your concern.  Move for changing the laws.  If the government is shut down, then those that shut it down get nothing.  You see, you cannot possibly be representing me when you allow me to suffer and you feel no loss.  And for those who think they have not been affected, yes you have.

Okay, enough of that.  What else can we do?  Something that is quicker, more powerful.  Join me now in prayer for godly wisdom of those elected officials, that they understand we are all in this.  And for peace and stamina for the many who are affected.  Pray unity for the United States of America. enough for now.

The Joy of The Lord

I am so excited!  Excited about what?  Glad you asked.  Life!  Yes,  I am awake and clothed in my right mind (as they used to say when I was young). I do not know what this day brings, but I know the Bringer of this day!  (Did you like that?).  Things are moving (I don't know what).  Things are changing (I don't know where).  I don't need to know,  I know the One who has promised.  With God life is happening.  Life is happening in spite of craziness.  It is a part of the "all things" plan of God.  It all works together.

Let me go a little farther.  I have peace. . . God's shalom.  That right there affords me the opportunity to be excited.  Oh, if I could let what I feel flow onto these words I would.  But you don't need me to do that.  Holy Spirit guides you in so many ways.  Let Him do so.  Enjoy this day!  Explore the joy of The Lord today.  Watch to see what God is doing in your life.  Enjoy! Enough for now.

Walk On

Do you really know how easy it is to walk away?  You can, only because you must walk toward.  Okay, let me say that another way. F.G. Sampson told me never leave a place but go to a place.  Let me say it another way.  What ever it is that you need to let go - you can.  The only way to do it effortlessly is to follow Holy Spirit's guidance.  Go ahead . . . Try it.  You see, you have been stuck in a rut and now is your time to get unstuck.  As Donald Lawrence sings, "This is your season. Walk into it."

This is the Day

Today my youngest grandson is 13.  My my, the joy of watching all three grandson grow.  Today is a great day of remembrance of the love.

That's my great day. What is yours?  You see, it really is more than my grandson's birthday, it is a new day to experience God's love.  It just happen to have a little 'kiss on the cheek' for me.  Get ready to experience this day.  "This is the day.  This is the day, that the Lord has made, that the Lord has made.  I will rejoice.  I will rejoice and be glad in it."  I was going to continue singing but stopped.  Yes this is the day!  Watch for what God is doing in your life. enough for now.
