Seeking God
“Blame…..a way to discharge pain and discomfort.” – Brene’ Brown

It’s just a phrase but we all do it…we feel uncomfortable so we discharge our blame on whomever. How do we, I, charge through life when blame, anger, injustice, hurt and hate deep loathing exists in our own homes? How do we come to this objective discourse?

In human terms – I had a raging argument with a close family member today. It was horrible. The searing madness of my anger, blood boiling and heart pounding emotions churned out the hateful words – “Get out of my face” – soon turned to feelings of guilt and shame, “Where is your grace, Lord?”

I was already feeling upset about another situation from earlier in the day – that I couldn’t jump into the issue at hand – I passed the buck or maybe I didn’t. I don’t know. How do I seek peace and true joy in the midst of chaotic madness – which I have only fueled with my own short comings? I have not acted in love –

Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8

It is so hard to be authentic – when there is so much blame, anger and judgement.

Seeking the Lord’s peace and certainty,

noses So early this morning,  after a long holiday vacation,  this is the sight I see….

The hilarity of it only continued…

…as said child asked….

“Why does “this” keep coming out?”

Unsure of how to respond, I said, “You’re boogies?”  Yeah, she said.

So yes, I had  a small (but meaningful) discussion about mucus and its purposes for keeping your y healthy.

“It’s gross.”,  she said.  I know, there’s a lot of it in your body and it’s supposed to stay inside your body. But when you’re sick it comes out and it helps to keep boo boos out of your nose. “Well, its yucky.”

So what else can I say…its mucus

transformed I have been so inundated with “things” this past year. I have never really settled into my new house – from the move two years ago – it is so sad. I have stopped doing everything I LOVED and that brought joy to my life. I have “held onto so much” {stuff} that I couldn’t breath anymore. But what is more is that I wasn’t [pleased]  pleasing God or doing that which truth and love had come forth into my surroundings.

Sure I wanted so much more. I want a new desk and new stuff but I needed to purge the nonsense…the baggage…the junk….

So I did.

I threw it all away…

I literally threw away stuff. It means less and less to me in light of all that I have lost this past month…

It’s time for a change….a transformation….

My stuff was silencing my “gift of gab” I love to connect with people through words spoken and written. I can talk for hours…I can… 🙂

A clean slate means that it is God’s turn now to mold, shape, move and be glorified… and allow me to….

Be transformed.

 

It is so refreshing to hear – the secular entertainment world say – “having brought God in here it is extraordinary ….we do miss the spiritual dimension.” – #Noemi

Suor Cristina -“Oh Daddy dear (Abba) you know you’re still number one…I want to be the one to walk in the sun.” “When Sister Cristina sings she gives joy, and this is her gift.” – #J-Ax

This is perfect for Easter weekend – the Lord still prevails and will not be silenced.

Happy Easter!


So I’ve been a little down lately.  Things just aren’t going my way and I am getting disenchanted. I haven’t been very focused and just blah about being home after this surgery. And then, when I felt like all the pieces were falling apart – the best thing happened.

Don’t make fun — I LOVE fruits and vegetables — an awesome {huge} fruit basket came with well wishes from our neighbor.

Hallelujah for fruit and “the fruits of the Spirit“.

So folks this is the last of my posts on Irene. Our parks have dried up and the over flowing creeks and rivers have receded. But in the hours after the storm left our area and continued north (unfortunately), our local Fish Hatchery was met with quite a muddy, murky, wet mess…

Low lying fish pods over flowed and some fishies got away.

And here is the video of our Little Lehigh Creek at the Fish Hatchery – turned raging river. I’d say about 8 feet over its normal levels….

Stay dry and safe…
