An evening in the light

An honor and a privilege came my way this evening as my daughter who has had a real turn around came to me with an amplified Bible in hand and asked me to read to her. Now Dash was longing for his time too with me and I invited him and his pillow/ blanket to come and lay on the floor to hear as I read.
It was the book of John chapters 1-3. Amplified and expressed with the ease of a child's understanding.
It was Holy!

Now the wisdom came to me to explain that it is the Holy Spirit living by invitation, through belief in Christ Jesus and all that He had done to wake mankind up into who He was/is on that cross, that the light is welcomed. Once light comes in the darkness is then illuminated and can not stay dark any longer. because All the dark deeds done are a prison that is our own torment and separation. When we live in darkness we fear the light. Than that in itself is the separation...the torment.

To welcome the light to shine within is to repent of it and let the light chase away every shadow. We no longer have to live in the loneliness for the absence from fear.

Dove asked me to pray with her, Dash thanked me and wandered off to bed. It was a good night in the light. Darkness got the illumination it needed around here. We spoke of our adoption into the light as also many other things too. This one was so amazingly made clear to them though.

I think I am glowing tonight with gratitude, conviction of a darkness of an amends to tend too. In a way this offense seems so justified it serves a purpose of seeming separation to protect my child. To protect my kid through anything other than light shined into the darkness is error. I must face the darkness head on or I am simply withholding the light from it. The darkness may reject that light but if I withhold the light from opportunity then I error.

Sweet blessings indeed.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'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"
