Tuesday thoughts

It is an early wonderful morning. To exhale all of the thoughts of late has left me lighter in heart. Truth has a marvelous way of doing that. At the risk of offending I spoke. I have held myself brideled and at bay. Looking out into an ocean that looking within seames warmer.
Now missing those lives that touch. Missing so many of you.

I forgo-ed affiliation for some time. Now seeing the need for my soul, the cost of isolation. Allowing my truth to be silenced for the denial, the comfort of one other. Leaving me withdrawn from the former vivacious self. I want to bring me home. To pull up the self so silenced by the fear of what others might think. Overly concerned .

Tackled this Tuesday by a since of self more ready to belong. I have spoke often of the five phases of self esteem.

security
a since of self
affiliation
mission
competency

This season of my days have gifted me to have a greater freedom. My days of life were always an argument between my siblings. One that left me devoid of proof. Torn by strong forces that ridiculed my inner knowledge. A knowledge that came from the depths of me.

It is a wonderful thing to see who I am attached to this world. Seeing the innate gifts I have it leaves my eyes wide open and full of acceptance. A gardener, preparer of sustenance, making with my own hands for my family those things we have need of. It is a joy to see the lineage of a people who were as I am. We all have an innate need for a since of belonging. One that I have never fully known. I knew that I was His, that I belonged here to my little family, but that was still left wanting. That wanting is no longer in question or debate. It feels wonderful.
I have always admired the indigenous peoples of Australia. The amazing wisdom these vanishing souls had. Living in a land seemingly inhospitable. Thriving until others interfered. the definition of thriving being something totally foreign to the greater view of others who see them impoverished. They never knew they were until they saw what others had. They simply lived in the wisdom of the elders who taught them how to live and eat, loving their own families. These yes assumptions but that is how I always viewed them.
I have always admired people like that. Now they call these things going green. Returning to the core of our humanity.
May the whole of the living return to humanity.
I remember Chief Joesph of the Nez Perse tribe as wise words asked where have the humans gone. Oh that this going green might bring us back to our humanity. Cause us to remember who we are and embrace the life that God has given us.

On That note my heart flows to the kitchen it is early morning hour here. Time to tend to the needs of my loving little family. May each of us awaken today to remember our humanity. It is a beautiful gift.
We were not born reptiles or jackals. :)

'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."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “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"
