Sunday Scribblings

Sunday scribbling offers a chance to write on various topics,
this weeks is power.

For all of my life I have often wondered why folks pursued the power of control over others. Of course we all know in part it is to make them feel superior all powerful. Fear of being over powered by need, greed or want. Nothing can touch them. I suppose it is true that after a time nothing can touch them. They mistakingly think they are invincible. Yet it is usually the meek and weaker that they are empowered over. They can provide everything they want or need and force others into their bidding. Hearts become harden to others around them and they do become untouched by those they so horribly effect.
Unfeeling and self consumed.

For me I have somehow always know that the true power is in kindness. I am not speaking of the gullible week kindness that allows harm to come upon ons self. Rather a kindness that examples the very innate need that every breathing thing requires. The power of security. In kindness is the very offering that those who loose all, come to pursue.
When those who live by the sword encounter the sword they beg for mercy, for kindness.
Those who harm others are confronted with their crimes they beg of the court...mercy kindness.
Kindness is power.
I won because of kindness.
By forgiving I overcame all evil.
It is through kindness that I am empowered to grasp for understanding when everything in me is restrained from lashing out!
That is all power.
For when kindness lives in me I am exampling the greatest kindness ever offered humanity.
Even in the smallest of acts it is a simple kindness that will win over even the hardest of hearts.
Kindness will set free those who were worn by controlling people.
Those harmed by others are set free in the choice the very acts that are based in kindness.
For Kindness is Power!

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
