ON FIRE

A Challenging Prayer

GOD’S CREATION – We your people cry out each morning for help.

UNCHANGEABLE FATHER – Still, you love us,  each traveling from continent to country, culture to language, from city, town or outback to anywhere in between.

ALMIGHTY SAVIOR – We are splintered by opposing values, contradictions, some weak in faith, gasping for air – temporal sustenance – as family, society, government and country are under assault.

MERCIFUL ONE – We have forgotten to gaze upon the Holy Cross which can refresh us from pain.

BISHOP OF OUR SOULS – We are struggling with identity crisis; we have forgotten we  are made in God’s image.

HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE – We reject your powers to sanctify us, to live holy lives.

MIGHTY IN BATTLE – We’ve become frail.  Come save us.  Forgive our transgressions. Fill our hearts with grace, compassion and forgiveness.  There is still time to change.  One by one, we can blare the trumpet call to dispense charity, smile, hug, be prayerful.

KING OF GLORY – Do not give up on us.  Peoples of the world, let us recommit our existence to goodness and justice.  End malice, drop our weapons.

  The world is screaming for peace.  Amen.

 

 

 

 

GOD’S MYSTERY

A Challenge

God defines who we are

as different vocations throughout a lifetime;

 God’s Holy Spirit prompts us to follow His Will

for the glory of His kingdom,

accepting this gift fortifies body and soul

making everything easy for you and conforming to your free will

then Peace of your soul will prevail over all fears and suffering.

You will bless those around you, you will finish the race in the good!

MERCI FOR THE AWESOME IMPACT AWARD

Dear Manuela, I bless you for sharing this Awesome Impact Award with me, so fitting is my current situation impacting life in a funny good way….sharing below in a short story format:

A Short Story

Searching Through The Pain

October 15, 2018 – They say “three strikes and you’re out.” Although the impact was severe, Zaza braced for it with nowhere to move out of the truck’s path.  She turned her head away from the monster and when it was over, she thanked God she was alive still.  This would be the third accident in her life…the universe unshaken, the shattered glass cascading down her long curls, with a stranger asking her ‘are you okay?’  The woman nodded ever  though her right arm began to swell, rushed to the hospital and now in a long cast for 7 weeks…ugh!

The quivering pain wakes Zaza before sunrise most mornings now.  She sits in the darkness, she knows this is when she can encounter her Creator.  Her mind addresses him silently with a grateful offering of being alive.  She offers her pain for those who suffer more than her, sleepy are her eyes all warm with holy tears feeling God’s love, a ‘sacred rhythm,’ pure gift so undeserved, she tells herself, enduring the pain until it comes and goes.

O, Zaza perceiving the first rays of sunlight through the oak trees in her front yard.  The dark branches change into liquid gold, she forgets the dull aching in her bones and JOY settles in as a treasure for the new day…

SWITCHING WARDROBE

Decluttering

Any change of seasons is a perfect time to declutter most closets in the home.  For me, it’s time to put away summer items and bring forward winter clothing.

I begin by removing everything out of the closet so I won’t be tempted to keep something that is too small or too big or definitely not street wearable, LOL!

The process of getting rid of old items, either to be thrown away or given to a thrift shop, is intensely liberating.  It will also give you a reason to buy something new.

I suggest you pick one day a week for each closet that needs decluttering.  Eventually you will get very excited about the progress you are making in your life  in letting go and becoming a happier person, and you may even find a treasure or lost item that will make you smile and remember a good past thing.

Just do it!  You will remove dead energy.
