I Do Forever

I do forever.
I really like this commercial from Thailand. It has a beautifully poignant message of love and fidelity.
(Even if she is a bit… less pleasant with age)

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Affirmation of the human spirit is not tied into the validation of a “Like” button.

What is everywhere and nowhere and has no center?

YOU CAN Create a Beautiful Reality

 Beauty comes from within.

The beauty of you is the center of your reality. What you fill yourself with can feed the hunger and emptiness in others. Grow like a tree that can feed the world.

 

James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

 

2 Corinthians 9:10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)

How Different are We Really?

 

How different are we really from the animals? They feel, think and care. And genetically we really are only so different from them. Even elephants and whales have finger or toe bones. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they are not there. People often forget that we too are animals, only we have a higher capacity for conscious reasoning, and unfortunately we too have a higher capacity for unreasonable cruelties based on our own personal miseries.

 

Love and playing is universal in almost all life here on Earth. Even plants are connected and respond to their neighbors and surroundings; only we have a harder time seeing it in most because they don’t react like we might. So though it is true that you are the center of your world,  you are not in fact the center of the universe. Live as a part of something greater and stop trying to be so great to your own eyes.

 

Love, Relate, Share and Care… After all isn’t love: patient, kind and longsuffering?

 

2 Corinthians 6:6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

 

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

 

Ephesians 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

 

Colossians 1:11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET?

Where in a handbasket

WHAT DO WE DO NOW IF THE WORLD IS HEADING TOWARD HELL IN A HAND BASKET?

I found this online and I have to say I am not too happy about it. Sure the people there dress a little funny and their property could use a little cleaning up but do they really need to be harassed for being organic?

http://wearechange.org/swat-team-raids-organic-farm-confiscates-blueberries/

 

Now I personally am not there yet with the whole “organic” thing but each day I see more and more reason to move somewhat in that direction. I still eat meat from the store and buy food out of the “organic” section to save money. I hear arguments on both sides about one is better than another or that there is no difference. Either way, wouldn’t it be great to grow your own food? I am seeing increased concerns about food shortages and a serious lack of natural resources verses the population’s growth and consumption.

The Generation Gap

Numbers 14:18 The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.

If the sins of the father carry over, so too couldn’t his blessings and mercy?

papago I am so excited! See that mountain? That is now one of several right outside our backdoor! We’ve been dying to get out and explore the trails. Unfortunately, we’re five days in and haven’t been able to.

It’s funny how change….whether good or bad, can bring a combination of emotions.

Frustration. Of course there are the usual daily frustrations, but this change brought about some of its own. I think Daniel feels them more than I do. While we were moving, he tweaked his knee. While he’s in no way incapacitated, walking is not comfortable for him. He’s been wanting to get out on the trails so badly, but doesn’t want to risk further injury. As for me, I’d rather share the experience with Daniel, so am content with waiting. My frustrations lie with my own negligence. Two days after moving in and unpacking, I’m asking “Where is my…

The wonders of the Great Artist brings serenity and wonder to my soul… what a great trip. Simple but magical. I love this state… and my girl.

It’s absolutely spectacular, isn’t it?

After a rough 50 hour work week and impending move, Daniel and I thought a little trip out of town was in order!  For days we debated on where to go and for how long.  It had even come down to a point of wondering if we should go anywhere at all.  Phoenix was to get rain all day on Saturday, which is a rare occurrence, and the higher elevations were to get snow.  Not exactly traveling weather!  Then, at the last possible minute, we decided to take a day trip north.  The weather had cleared and cabin fever had set in.  This beautiful sight was our destination; the Grand Canyon.  It truly lives up to it’s name!  Of course this was the final destination.  Since I’m still fairly new to Arizona, there were a few other places Daniel wanted to share with me along the…

Some of these are just simply ridiculous!

However, not all family photos can be picture perfect. So we scoured the internet for twenty of the funniest/weirdest/most awkward family photos we could find — and laughed our butts off doing it.

Click through for 20 awkward family photos, starting with one of our favorites: “Over the Rainbow.” We have mixed feelings about this one. It’s weird and genius all at once. It’s like they’re searching for Dorothy … or a pot of gold!

Love and Wonder

Love is amazing…. and God is “Correct” for sharing His “Truth/Love” with us. Thank you God for so loving the world that is in me that you gave me the Truth to set me free.

It seemed very fitting to have a beautiful, big moon in the sky this morning. A wonderful way to start Valentine’s day. A beautiful sight for a day full of beautiful sentiments.

As I browsed through Facebook, I took note of all the sentiments that frame this day. Timeline photos sharing words of love and quizzes to discover your cupid name. Photos of moms and children decked out in red and pink, wishing all of their friends a happy Valentine’s day. Close-ups of manicures decorated with hearts and glitter. And even the somewhat frustrated comments on how offices will resemble that quirky arcade game with the bobbing moles, as woman after woman jumps up to accept a flower delivery. It all just made me smile over the feelings and sentiments that accompany the day. And don’t we all succumb to it in one way or another? I had wished Daniel…
