“Mustard Seed Budget” is another one of my faithful followers. We agreed on many things when it comes to religious belief, especially in the belief that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. I have huge disagreements with some of his insights about God. For one I do not believe God is a “Punisher” of humans in order for them to crawl back to Him. “What harm we do in life, in the majority of cases, we do to ourselves” is my way of belief. Other than that I believe this WordPress blog has much wisdom to give to us all and is truly worth reading and following.
a time to gather stones together — Eccelesiastes 3:5
The pieces of our lives get scattered. Either things explode by themselves, or we make poor choices and squander the good gifts God gave us.
When we are angry at God, He waits patiently for us. Sometimes, we have to be broken to come to God humbly. Then He begins to pick up the pieces of our lives.
God sent me to Guatemala on a mission that I didn’t originally know what for. But it was for restoration.
Carlos opted out of the church. He was hit with the double whammy of church rules and bubbling hormones. The hardness has melted now. His mother died a month ago. Elisa was a powerful force for years to help build the church. Carlos has finally taken over his dad’s bread bakery and is trying to be the…

Hocuspocus13 has been a follower of my WordPress Blog for a very long time. There is always those that seem to be the first to post a like with a new posting on one’s WordPress Blog, this WordPress follower follows in that faithful group. The Blog itself, is one of mystery in some ways. Who the poster really is, seemly is never revealed. The Reblogs themselves within the blog are insightful and full of knowledge in the worlds beyond us. Worth going thru for that special knowledge that seems to excape us in the everyday media, but yet down deep within our spiritual being, we know to be true.

my eyes, though weak, seem to become clearer
about what I see about me.
Something about the look of God’s creations
that I did not notice before now
In seeing this creation
a wonderment stops my breath.
Is it the sound of wind singing
that I had not noticed before now?
Is it the vastness of the night skies filled with a beauty
beyond words that I cannot describe?
I find myself noticing beauty in people
a beauty that before
I did not see.
I see beauty in the old, the sick
the visions that I used to turn away from seeing
but no longer do.
I feel the pain and joy of other people
I used to not feel such things.
The laughter of a child
ringing like a heavenly bell,
pealing in a meadow
sounds in my ears.
Is this God’s way of saying
“Look at what you have missed earlier in your life?”
I am not sure
but I do know
now I have become more thankful.
More thankful each day
for the gifts God has given to me.
I seem to be getting closer to heaven each day.
I now know, what I see, hear and Feel
are all but a small part of what will be in God’s world.
I can only hope
that in this twilight of my life
I might become worthy
in the areas that I have been unworthy.
May I be worthy of the love and blessings
He has given me in this life.
Thank you God
for this day.
