Don't see me...

I remember when I recently caught ella doing something she shouldn't...she said to me..."mummy, don't see me!"

I was moved by her often when we make a mistake, we hope and pray that others do not see our sin...that others do not see our weakness, our failings....
When ella said that to me...I loved her all the more...she so wanted to not disappoint me...she knew immediately she had done wrong...what more did I need to say...

I believe the Father sees us this way...I pray he does...

The Saddest Song I've Got

I know I've posted this before...but everytime I play this it reminds me that we all need to pray for peace...there is so much suffering in this world.

So much energy radiates from this photo...he just trying, no faking, he just exudes strength and conviction... I love this photo!

Redefining the line in the sand...

We all have it...that line in the sand that we do not cross...or a line we do not allow others to cross over as it is our boundary line. I have done this...many times and it helps to keep things clear for me, maintains boundaries or goals or values that I set for myself.

The line has blurred at times, or actually been stood on and trampled...but no more.

In the eye of the storm

All around, chaos reigns, friendships shattered, relationships damaged, love tested, friendships stretched, futures on hold, suffering all around.

I tell myself that within every storm there is a place where the sun still shines, where there is peace to be found that shelter can be found from the battering of hurt and tears....

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. (Psalm 103:2-5)

"Let me state something important. There is never a time during which Jesus is not speaking. Never. There is never a place in which Jesus is not present. Never." (p.91)

Taking religion seriously...

I just found the funniest blog which takes a tongue in cheek poke at all things religious! The blog is called Purgatorio and even though the owner is on hiatus....there is lots to read and laugh about. I'm not taking sides...I'm enjoying the silliness of it all and the reminder that both sides need to step back and lighten up!

Here is one post that pokes fun at the emergent/emerging movement...You Might Be Emerging If...I laughed so hard (except for his mention of Bono) that I had to share!
