HE knows; so do YOU!

FOWC another blogger here on WordPress always has some exciting prompts to excite our way of thinking. Today the word is “Heretic.”

One can ask a zillion people what heresy is; receive definitions from A to Z with numerous various opinions in between. Example: What is the truth?

God knows the heart and soul of each of us; He knows the opportunity we have been given to know the Truth, He knows if we want His Truth or do we want our truth?

This particular verse in the Apocalypse of the Bible sums it up for me, simple and to the point:

“But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.”
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 3:16]

How to sit back and enjoy the FAKE NEWS

Question by FPQ: “How do you feel about people who always seem to exaggerate when relating a story? Do you equate embellishment with lying? As a blogger, when, if ever, is stretching the truth, other than when writing fiction, permissible?”

Also, the word of the day from FOWC is “NEWS.”

***************

Think about how dull the news stories would be without the adjectives used by the writers. Depending on the reader and their wants and needs one would grade the news as being exaggerated or “right on,” lying or just creative writing. The reader who loves the truth will read as they say, “between the lines.” In other words, what is meant by something that is not written! The creative genius of the writer by their embellishment can very easily falsify or misrepresent the truth, by their use of semantics of words.

Semantics is one weapon engineers of the New World Order have put into use, changing definitions of words and symbolism. The person looking for the truth should always ask when in a debate, especially debating with someone from the left, what definition they are using.

Consider also the omittance of “news” such as lately questions about the whereabouts of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The Globalists certainly have to worry about their One World Order agenda set-back when it comes to the real story concerning her ability to serve.

My advice when it comes to hearing the news of today is to “pray and not worry.” Trust God instead of fear the fake news of the Globalists. Not only will that advice be good for your health, but will offer you peace of soul and happiness.

Ah! Another Challenge, Share your World

Who, Me!

Share your World wants to know; and who doesn’t like to write about oneself every once in a while.

Five questions you can read here:

My answers below:

Didn’t have to think too long on this first question. Honestly can’t remember when I might have been offended personally. I say personally directed at me, myself and I. Having said that I do get annoyed when someone disparages what I believe to be sacred and holy unless they are asking an honest question, all coming down to their motive and comebacks.

It is often said that the morals of society will shape the government. Therefore I mean, the morals must be VERY IMPORTANT! Currently, our culture and its morals are headed for a nosedive. Taking the government with it no matter who the President is. I suppose God, as He always has in the past,  will take us back to the essential Ten Commandments; back to basics sooner or later.

My epitaph might be something like this: Wife, Mother, Grandmother who made her share of mistakes in life; in the end, finally understood why it took a lifetime to figure out her purpose in life.

French toast, pancakes or waffles? All sounds good to me, but am leaning toward the pancakes, Swedish pancakes, thin and sweet are my favorite.

Each day when I awake, I am always grateful for my faith in God, my family that keeps growing and growing each year with grandchildren and now great-grandchildren connecting to the chain.

Grateful too, I haven’t had to use the new editor here on WordPress YET, I hate figuring out all over again new Internet “stuff.”

Define RACIST … or QUIT!

 

The prompt word today is “forlorn”… in a short wink, the only point of the word might be when I consider the media these forlorn days of reading, hearing their delivery of commentary on what in the past described as”NEWS,” today it is more like FORLORN rumors.

Let us begin by thinking!

Those to the left and right, what is wrong with Making America Great?
Make America Great Again, BY demanding TRUTH from the media.

And MEDIA MAKERS EVERYWHERE the next time you refer to a conservative as a racist… PLEASE define the word RACIST in your narrative, to avoid any misconception.

REMEMBER IT BEGINS WITH YOU!

Journalists are THE FIRST to bring us the TRUTH, remember what Albert Einstein said:

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”

 

SoCS

PONDER THIS!

Anno Domini, in the year of our Lord, since the birth of Jesus Christ so says the thesaurus, and who can argue with the thesaurus or dictionary.com.

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ad/add/AD (Anno Domini).”

Nonbelievers to Christians and everyone in between adds to their instruments of necessary paperwork the date based upon the birth of Jesus Christ. God is clever that way! In a way, it is His AD of advertising that He and He alone is King.

 

 

Supernatural Reality

Physician-assisted Suicide? Right or Wrong

The Challenge or suggestion today is in the form of a question, today the question is physician-assisted suicide, yes or no!

I love questions that cause me to think. I also realize that my way of thinking is not according to the direction of the world is moving today.
It is as though we are being pulled like a magnet to believe that this life is all we have therefore we should live it according to our convenience.

God really and truly speaks to all of us, and especially to us when we are near to our end. Suicide is evil because it removes our soul from the last chance we will have to hear His voice embedded within. If you don’t believe me, ask any physician or Hospice caretakers to tell you the stories they have witnessed sitting at the bedside of the dying.

Time to eternity is our journey like being born; leaving the womb of your mother entering this life. Now coming into our eternity, a new life of our choosing, a life of happiness or a life of absence of joy depending on how we ended.

Suicide is cheating yourself of that final vital conscious or coma state moment while still in the state of TIME. The time to review; the most critical moment allowed us.

The dying persons hearing the voice of God while pondering any regrets, feelings for contrition/repentance, and most importantly forgiveness from He who has created you.

The Moment of Truth!

Our puppy — a single Altoid — equal one serendipity moment!

Let me expound!

Take a typical puppy, who wants whatever and everything.

Imagine if you can, my indulgence and pampering myself to a strong peppermint Altoid at that same moment seeing “puppy” staring at me; with eyes speaking “I want one,” so I gave her one.

She eagerly snatched it and just as promptly spit it out, only to try again; spit it out again, and if that wasn’t comical enough, she started to growl and bark at the Altoid.

PRICELESS!

That was her serendipity moment, discovering all is not what it seems to be.

My serendipity moment happened over 35 years ago when I discovered the Catholic Church was not what it used to be. The Church was no longer One, Holy nor Apostolic, but an optical illusion. My neighborhood church slowly apostatized, now a man-founded religion that has adapted to the world a strange belief they called Vatican II.

What to do? Seek, and you shall find, I told myself, go back to what you have learned and believed from the beginning, and so I did.

Serendipity — #JusJoJan

Quotes: Our INSTRUMENT of Wisdom

#FOWC and his famous word prompt today is: …  ta da ♫ …

INSTRUMENTAL

I choose to post quotes from sources you may or may not be familiar with who have used the word “instrument or instrumental” within their speech.  Some you may or may not agree with but that is what makes the world go around.

*******

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Francis of Assisi

 

You not only have to know your own instrument, you must know the others and how to back them up at all times. That’s jazz. Oscar Peterson

 

What we call Man’s power over Nature turns out to be a power exercised by some men over other men with Nature as its instrument. C. S. Lewis

 

Prayer is not an old woman’s idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action. Mahatma Gandhi

 

You have to have a certain realism that government is a pretty blunt instrument, and without the constant attention of highly qualified people with the right metrics, it will fall into not doing things very well. Bill Gates

 

We really were a very musical family. Father managed to buy us a small pump organ, and I just loved this instrument. Lawrence Welk

 

Power is an instrument of fatal consequence. It is confined no more readily than Quicksilver and escapes good intentions as easily as air flows through the mesh.

Mike Pence

 

While most of the music I write is instrumental, I love to use the human voice as another instrument. Yanni

 

“The sun when he appeareth shewing forth at his rising, an admirable instrument, the work of the most High.”
[Ecclesiasticus 43:2]

 

My quote:  The Blessed Virgin Mary was the most important instrument to mankind in that it was through her that God chooses to bring His Son into the world to redeem us.

TEAR DOWN THAT WALL …

Of ENMITY!

“Enmity” the word prompt today from “#FOWC and what a strong word that is.
How can we conquer this emotion of “hate?”
Rancor is prominent today among the Democrats and Republicans as we see on the news today. Not much love there; is it any wonder our youth seems disjointed. Where are their role models? Certainly not in politics!
This wall they speak of is not a matter of dollars; it is evident to those who can see — a matter of ENMITY, hatred for each other.

They have succeeded in building A WALL between them, their ego, self-worship, and wrongful agendas reach heaven, calling for vengeance. Soon it will come, like a thief in the night, it will come to them who love hatred.

dVerse, Photo For the Week, poetry

Back to Kindergarten; a MEMORY!

dVerse is asking bloggers to walk around our house and look at all the things hanging there: on walls, in closets, on your refrigerator door, etc. Pick something that “speaks to you” and use that as the basis for today’s poem. Do take a photo of it if you can, and post the photo too. Perhaps your poem will describe the object, or share a memory about the object, or let us know why the object is important to you; or why it’s hanging there. Any form of a poem is fine; serious or fun or reflective. The key is, we want to hang out with you today and learn about something hanging where you live!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Every time I hear the word “Hanging”, it brings back a memory of me, standing there in kindergarten with the other children and reciting this poem. It had great meaning for me, then as a small child, but today the meaning is even greater. For certainly I have been a very naughty child of God in the past 78 years of my life. Although this is not my poem, composed by me, the author, I believe, is anonymous.

Jesus hanging on the cross,
Tell me was it I?
There are great big teardrops, Lord,
Did I make you cry?
I have been a naughty child
Naughty as can be.
Now I am so sorry Lord;
Please come down to pardon me!

poetry, Tanka Tuesday by Colleen Chesbro

Start your New Year with a Tanka Poem

 

Bliss

 


My post here is an acceptance of Colleen Chesebro Challenge Tanka Poetry; her challenge is to use the synonyms for the words .”Begin and
fresh”

Opening my eyes

Your Epiphany Don’t Miss It!

Below please read my very first Sonnet poem composed and response to dVerse Poets. The beginning of a New Year and an opening of dVerse Poets who will be creating a new book with samples of poetry in the form of prompts to bloggers. My Sonnet Rhyme scheme:
ABAB // CDCD // EFEF // GG

An Epiphany every day to share
something to live for — a rewarding gain.
Personal lightning bolts, some call prayer!
Very easy for your genius to train.

Your friend — SILENCE helps complete the design,
your enemy — unwanted DISTRACTION.
Ability to relax perfect sign,
unwind; now ebb, reach to satisfaction.

Now place yourself in the presence of God!
Listen gingerly that song of quiet,
refusing to become a lightning rod.
Grow near supernatural reliant.

Awaiting peace of soul we hunger for
Since the Voice of God, Silence, not ignored.
