Mother Theresa

May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

I'm feeling funky for sure.
I thought I'd want to dance around the building singing wicked tunes - but I don't. I feel bad. I'm sorry they didn't turn things around in time. I'm sorry people were hurt. I know the minister meant to teach "Truth" and just got stuck along the way.

They were willing to throw me away for pointing out the obvious - instead of finding answers that work. I should be happy . . Celebratory.

he treated me rudely - badly - and was willing to lie - or resort to manipulation rather than adjust to the principles he claimed to understand.

Their "center" (church) is closing this week. It should be closed - because they thought they knew more than God and could do everything their own way.

Still, It's sad.

It's also God's statement that - while their community fought and fell apart - believing themselves holy, totally advanced in understanding, in "consciousness" -and now is disappearing altogether - right across the street - for everyone to see - a Korean, Presbyterian Church has had to expand, taking the better part of a block to fit their new buildings - hiring police and security to assist people in parking -

God Wins.
He always does.
He always will.

I'm singing praises - grateful, thankful, happy - I know God is ultimately in control and
All Is Well.

There's such a shift between thinking in partnership and thinking singularly. I'm thrilled for the new understanding but struggle with the everyday re-training of myself to know I'm okay, capable and allowed to look out for me.

I was looking at art supplies when I suddenly remembered the words to a Fred Small song," You can be anybody you want to be . . . . " That's nice. I used to sing that to and for everyone else. What a gift to have that pop up in my mind for me. It's true, as long as I'm willing to keep on, I can be anything . . . .

Life Is Good

I was listening to Pastor George last night

He had a Word that "Vision is being raised from the dead."
Golly! That's GREAT news to me.
It's time to brush off my spiritual knees
(because they've been pretty scuffed up lately)
and renew my vision.
My vision is coming alive!
we were reminded:
moves to the next level
I'm encouraged.

Good Morning

It's been a while since I've had anything of my own to share.
Still, It's time to "check in."
For years I've been considering building a "classical life" for myself. Lately I'm become serious about it. Since I live in a smaller community, I wait for the Thursday Evening Paper and scour the help wanted ads. I've found a few things that look really interesting. I know something GOOD is about to happen to me. I'm getting excited. I'll let you know when a new life is secure.

I'm finishing an article about the "Sprinkler Skirmishes."
My teacher had a great title, "The Hydrophile Family."
That's why she's the teacher and I'm the literary hopeful.

'bye for now!

Thank you, Father,
I know You always guide me.
You satisfy my needs in parched places.

(Isiah 58:11)
