Ceasefire in the Ukraine?

It’s cold, they want to have peace, how can we talk if we are cold hearted, they two small boys huddle around a fire, the friend is gone to get a fix, they wonder about the future, what should you wish for, it’s Christmas after all. The two pals chat, there is seriousness in their voices, it’s the voice of the old soul, to worry about the future, it’s not a topic you relate to children, then again, there are questions, not everybody thinks the same.

When winter ends, we are happiest, it’s the summer. The fire is weak, they add another piece of firework. they call it firework, the branch of tree they use, it’s more humane and trees are places for birds to live in safety. Their friend is near, they hear the rattle of the bell, the door opens, a little joy, he has two loaves in his hands, something to eat says the boys.

A clean neighborhood, none of the fear, no mother having to worry about her child, a safe place to grow up in, free of the needles, the children don’t want to see those things, but addicts have been growing, and there are those that try to encourage their use, surely the prayer will get a hearing.

So boys the older one says, each has a piece of bread, they are smiling now, the food in the stomach, a release from the other anxiety. So what asks the other, when i was away, what were you two scribes talking about. ceasefire in the Ukraine, well, if the hearts are cold inside, what chances are peace, another mouthful of bread warms the insides, feels good too. And those other places adds the senior fellow, they want food and peace too, amen.

Solomon sighed, the signs indicate a divine future, time to make the arrangements, same way you prepare for the Christmas Season, amen.

The Cloud

Head for the clouds, the radio call out, the little spitfire is being pursued, colleagues look on, two enemy swoop down, the only chance, hide in the clouds, the only chance, he zigs and zags, the cloud is close, another five seconds and he is fine. Solomon sighed, find a friend that gives you cover in times of need. He thought of one option.

The crows hark and squawk, one of their own is on the ground, temporarily unable. A stranger is on the avenue, they holler out loud, trouble maybe, Solomon sighed, how the birds, Mother Nature, gives out the distress call long before the trouble arrives, amen.

Jesus said a long time ago, those is positions of authority better wake up, with responsibility, comes expectation, as with talents, not foreign hiding places, amen.

Why God’s People Suffer?

A common question that is asked ,why this why what, that, is it possible, the events, those that don’t believe, accept as valid reasons not to believe, giving them a licence to harm instead, or so they are led to believe. The month is November, the souls. Jesus tells all, forget about the demons, it’s the Eternal Father you should focus on. The month of November, reminds many, how are they doing, is there a struggle going on, is my hatred of others harming the eternal journey of others, can I do something about it; the prophets say you can, there prayer efforts noted.

Why do God’s people suffer, the question again, is there an end to pain. The childbirth is difficult, the lady is finding it tough, the nurse holding her hand, push she says, nothing happens, push she says, the head appears, the push, the body appears, minutes later she is smiling, the new mother, the pain absent, just like that.

Why God’s people suffer, the preacher is asked, a common request. The suffering in the world, can anyone imagine it, that again, more pain, do God’s people suffer, the preacher answers, they endure, it’s written, and their reward, is eternal joy. Why do you study for an exam.

November Memories

The recall, the story, the lesson, thinking of those that lay the path, memories. The laughing stock, no, it’s humor, fun, just a day, the writer recalls, those days, the car that broke down, those that sabotaged the jalopy, the meetings missed, the near misses, the strange events, we all love a good laugh, these wintry nights, the spring is not far off, the growth offensive, when Mother Nature comes to life, in the meantime, a chance to reflect, put down strategies for the coming season.

Solomon sighed, a close memory, the story of despair that was not despairing, the tenacity of the souls, how they are remembered, as are those other souls, many feeling lost, thinking of them, it’s easy to forget, but then again, maybe, just maybe, that’s why we need the dark so as to recognize the real light.

A parable of sorts, imagine the Eternal Fisherman, out on the seas, he comes home, the catch is fine, leaves the fishing to others, and after awhile he returns to the seas, not as it is supposed to be, so he sets them top work, those that interrupted the Spirit, or to put it mildly, those that put their talents into the material only and forgot about the talent giver. Solomon asks, how would you deal with the situation. How many have used the divine connection to overcome the minds of others, a typical case, a politician who gains the trust of the masses, and then when power gets to the core, deserts them for the material gain he frowned upon, a common ailment, ailment meaning, there is always a cure.

To this issue, the writer puts down the idea, of the lake of despair, not that it’s a lake of despair, it’s only a despair when it comes to cleaning up the mess, so how do you put words on it. There is talk of the prophets on the news, a strange affair, almost comedy, a wolf dressed as a lamb, the barrier is waiting, it’s a common theme. But the Great One in the story, hands a fishing rod to those who abused their talents, and points them to the pit of despair, their ambiguity caused, asks them to fish out the harm.

Everyone knows of such occasions, no one is ignorant of betrayals, and while their causes are masked in many different ways, the threads are there, there is the power of God that is permanent, not that we ignore the other reality, while at the same time, the gospel truth is played out. So as the great teacher says, get to your roots. Where do you come from,. recall what the old prophets say, whatever about the teachers of those laws, don’t worry if they don’t follow them, accidents happen all the time, just don’t get there too fast, limit the harm, learn what happened to others. In short, think of Abraham.

Years have passed, but the memory remains, that life helping events, and the choices that changed the world, the weather report on the day it mattered, there are many such events. The bag was stashed under the stairs, the clothes were added with time, the help was there when needed, it was her way of life, some great memories, amen. Did they really put all those people in there and torch the place, it happened, in places, let the call of the heart, be one you can dream sweetly with, amen.

Jesus on Growing up!

Whom do you want to be. The conversation is a strange one. The listeners are engaged. The talk is light, just ambitions, but the outcomes are serious. The preacher prepares, this is going to take a life time, this faith thing.

A range of seas, different influences, those that could be trusted, fall on their personal desires, or their other dark vices, tricky dickies. The wave is high, the floater hangs on, the body is found on a seashore, helped up, the resilience continues.

The view from the benches, the lives that are altered, the lies that become truth, the effort to undermine anyone of faith, whoever or where they come from, where will those souls find rest.

The beating of the Spirit continues, the dark minded one laughs, the world belongs to me, his slaves shout, yes master. The country by country ravaging of Spirit, where to next, no sign of the Spirit either, clear sailing. Like Santa’s little helpers, they rebuild the hope, the Spirit is ignited, then the heavens act, land prices on Pluto go wild over night.

“it takes time”

Steroid Living

What are these for, the treatment. The life expectancy is cut short, the quality of life matter, how do you want to live, the choice is yours. The patient is considering the options, struggle and hope for a miracle or take the short term option. The choice. Faith tells you to hold on, the story is a common one. Faced with difficult choices, what do you do. The Expert or the expert son, who is used to praise, has lived on it, enjoys the thrill of it, finds out, that as you get older, things do not work that way, becomes sullen, jealous, weird inside, hides it well, becomes devious, sets off in life, with that danger inside, ability matches his contempt. Does this describe a mindset, and when the emotions are missing, what sort of void does it leave inside, or do you need the answer to that?.

November souls, the children ask, the parents ask, we don’t wan’t to be reared on steroids, they are for sick people, we want normal and no more experiments on us, that is a demand, the prayer requests are in the mail bag of the returning soul, Santa Claus time for the outpouring of blessings. The schemes of the narcissists implode, their associates with them, a butterfly emerges from the casing, the new world begins, the children smile, well, in that book they say, what book, the book they are told to read, the questions, well, when in trouble, or need, you turn to your eternal father, and it’s not rocks you receive, unless it’s a foundation your are creating, it’s bread.

Steroid living, what is this they plant in the minds, that money and power is all there is, what about the “Eternal Spirit”, what about that. The voice is all quite, well, there is no money in that, well, you can’t sell it, or you can’t store it, well, the child looks at the loving Father, (for Joe), I want to go with you, the love in the heart, it wasn’t money or power the child was interested in, amen.

Anxiety and hyper children went hand in hand, a modern development, the experts were being called on, to present their reasons for it, did the pace of life overcome us all, amen.

I never got a greeting like that, the child rushes to him, a friend is after appearing, little one in toe, the action of the child, surprises him, well, what is it that we encourage…

Finding Space

accommodation is the issue, space, the relationship needs time, the head needs space, so much energy about, the ideas appear out of nowhere, darn, finding space, where do you go. The Golf professional, don’t blame him for playing golf, blame him for trying to teach it. She is on the back swing, stop, stop stop, she looks at him, horrified, I’m paying him for the lessons, now he is trying to take charge of me, she is used to getting her own way. That scowl she wears, he is used to it, same as any teacher, once she gets it, she will be praising him later, like the prophets of old. Space he says, you need to have space for the swing to come down. imagine your sweeping the kitchen he says, and.. kitchen she thinks, i have a maid to do all that, he wonders what to say next, finding the words, space.

The stuff, it’s so much to chose from. The teacher recommends this, the parents expect that, she has her own ideas, it’s confusing, she wants to please them all, or not to offend them, they all do their best. I’ll dwell on the moment, she remembers the film, the pretend surgeon who is asked for his opinion, he defers of course rather than risk harm to the innocent patient. Films and stories, what a great idea. She makes a list of great films of the older era, where character was built up, not bought, there must be lessons in them all, she smiles, she will never have a dull thought again, and she has worked out how to find space, or fill the vacuum in other words.

Later she reads a report, how the career changes up to eight times in a lifetime, it makes her think, general education, then the specifics, the maturity that comes with it, the matter solves itself, patience.

Solomon was in the temple, talking with a friend, very deep into the pilgrimage, the need to stretch the interest, so Solomon thought. Jesus told stories to explain things, and writers have been doing it ever since, learning with story. The lesson he said, is to watch the film,. not to critique it, that will come later. Many were afraid to look beyond their own gate when it came to understanding God Most High, in short, they were undermining their space, limiting their understanding, as if east or west, north or south was fixed; it only appeared fixed, it all depending on your starting position.

The preacher smiles, another way to explain things. he was trying to keep the teaching fresh, amen, space in other words, to express the divine word. The Gospel of John he sighed, as he turned out the light, amen.

Global

Who owns the earth, to whom are we responsible, what does a mother wish for, what are the new roles of women, what will the world cup do for Human relations, why are there different practices in different parts of the world, can an addicted world cope with change, and will the world of the Ancients, be the return to the Rule of God on earth. Questions Einstein might have asked.

The JFK attitude to the notion of the expert needs re examining. In his opinion, most of them were simply bought, amen.

The Scalpel

A name, a title, a profession, years of training, re training, in order to carry out, the most vital of operations, on your body, your life in the hands, of the one who yields the scalpel. The years of staying put, not the high life many assume, tedious book work, the cost of training, overcome now, by the cost of insurance, no bad days allowed, the threat of the lawyer, the shark on the reef, willing to take a bite, whatever, so many depend on the scalpel to survive.

The name recalls a memory, the laughter on the face, the patient will be there before me, the heavens that is, the patient smiles years later, how did you manage to save me, the wonder of the memory, one small town, one global recovery.

Solomon sighed, the effort of the few to maintain the services many depend upon, while the get even types harass for their cut of the booty, had any of them committed themselves to a life of service, in order to preserve the light in others, Solomon smiled. The one in ten as Jesus says, who are grateful, and the angst those go through, in order to rule over others, did they know, the heavenly inheritance, he sighs, the signs keep on coming, amen.

Young Girl

Away from the crowd, not able to mix that well, cooped up, the voices on TV, she wants to be like the others, instead her thoughts become insular, what is happening to me. The break out, a new friend arrives, in the form of an angel, her life is turned upside down, the door to her life opens, the Spirit escapes from the cage, hope, she sighs, that’s the feeling, new friends, the world no longer one filled with fear, on the loose, she has dreams, the nice things, even the sensuous thought, she is coming to life, as a flower opens to the sun. amen.

You don’t hide a lamp under the bed, the words of Jesus. The lamp being the light of Spirit.

The nervous feeling, a friend is calling, while alone a friend is thinking good of me, the never alone again feeling, she can relax and be alone, she is patient, there is a life out there, and the she is now a part of it, how to get out, she knows it’s just a question of time, amen.
