Hello my brothers and sisters,  Silver Streak rolling at you from the top of that ridge you see over ther’.  You know the one you see with that figure standing on top of it.  That is our Lord, standing there.  He is talking to all of us.  He is telling us that He wants to come in and fellowship with us.  He  says that He wants to give us what He knows we need, not what we want.  Not right now.   He knows what is ailing us and wants to help.  But He won’t until we ask Him too.  He is just waiting for the phone to ring…….are you calling Him?  If not, why not?  I know what happens when you don’t call.  I wrote about it in a blog a little while ago.  I have rectified that situation.  It should never happen again.  I learned my lesson.  We all need to learn a lesson now and then.     Look.  He is reaching for the phone, someone is calling Him, is it one of you?

 

I know that you are like me.  You have been walking along the beaches of life and have always had Jesus walking right reside you, until…….something happened.  Now you  looked down and back  and only saw one set of foot prints.  It scared you, didn’t it?  Until Jesus put you down.  Then you knew why,  He had been carrying you all the time.  Isn’t it great?  Isn’t Jesus awesome?  Praise God! Praise God!

Reflections from CT “Our Life with God”.  God cannot be  understood by logical reasoning but only by submission.  Leo Tolstoy.

God can’t clean the house of you when you’re still in it. Anne Lamott

It is not only prayer that gives God glory but work.  Smiting on an anvil, sawing a beam, white-washing a wall, driving horses, sweeping, scouring, everything gives God glory if being in his grace you do it as your duty.  Gerard Manley Hopkins

 

Lord, let me know clearly the work which you are calling me to do in life.  And grant me every grace I need to answer your call with courage and lave and lasting dedication to your will.  Saint Meinrad Prayer Book

Reflections from CT’s on Home.

One of the oldest of human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when  you don’t come home at night.  Margaret Mead

Real estate ads offer houses for sale, not homes.  A house is a garment easily put off or on, casually bought and sold; a home is skin.  Merely change houses and you will be disoriented; change homes and you bleed.  When the shell you live in has taken on the savor of your love, when  your dwelling has become a taproot, then your house is a home.  Scott Russell Sanders

Because home will always be here….it is in    your shoe wherever you go.  Barbara Stafford-Wilson

A man travels the world over in search of what he needs, and returns home to find it.  George Moore

Brothers and sisters, I leave you tonight with this prayer from the Book of Common Prayer  “Almighty God, our heavenly Father, we settest the solitary in families: We commend to thy continual care the homes in which thy people dwell…Turn the hearts of the parents to the children, and the hearts of the children to the parents; and so enkindle fervent charity among us all, that we may evermore be kindly affectioned to one another; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen! Amen!

Brothers and Sisters, just one more.  “Ship of Fools, the magazine of Christian Unrest had a contest.  It invited the readers to rewrite the Lord’s Prayer for texting.  Here is the 1st place winner:  dad@hvn, ur spshl, we want wot u want&urth2b like hvn.giv us food&4giv r sins lyk we 4giv uvaz.don’t test us!save us!bcos we kno ur boss,ur tuf&ur cool 4 eva!ok?

2nd place:  r pa in evan, respect 2 u, may u rain ear as in evan. giv us r needs, 4giv rsin as we 4giv r nmes. resq us from the evil 1. 4 ur always the most xlent dude. Yo

3rd place:  God@heaven.org You rule, up and down. We need grub and a break.  Will pass it on.  Keep us focused.  You totally rule, long term.  Amen.

Now all of you brothers and sisters out there in cyber land, let’s see if you can improve on these prayers.. you can only use 160 characters.  Take your favorite biblical verse and do it as a text message.  I would love to see what you come up with.  It only takes a spark to get a fire going……pass it on.  Praise God!

Silver Streak is gone, Bye  bye!
