Daily Inkling — My True Story!

Usually, I don’t post within my blogs anything personal; because my life is not that interesting and who cares that I burned the dinner last night anyway.

Today however the “Daily Inkling” stimulated an emotion, upon reading the prompt, inviting all to write about anything we might have with a signature and what that means to us.

My story starts here: While caring for my mother, who passed away six years ago at the early age of 98 — remembering her pleasant smile always, a gift to me, a memory and rare for someone unable to get out of bed; someone who spent her last ten months looking at the ceiling. My husband knew I had this responsibility of caring for her, all his plans of traveling here and there with me now on hold. The irony: He passed away exactly one year before her, November 2012 and she departed November 2013, just one day shy.
After they were gone; while going through their things, sorting, sifting, and separating whenever I found even just a tiny piece of their writings whether, on a note or scrap of paper, I stopped and stared at it in wonder. It was as if I saw for the first time their mindset or spirit. I thought, why did she scribble all those random words, what did they mean to her at that time? Thinking again, why did he draw that diagram, was it for me to understand something?
I kept those tiny pieces of treasures, little bits of their life that now became a precious gift, if only to myself.

Why do I blog? I imagine my loved ones TODAY perceive my blog here, they smile as they read my writings, composing of poems are a passing activity to keep my mind sharp, a hobby; while I whittle the time away!

Little do they know!

My desire for them to awaken, through the same discovering experience I received, they too will realize my written thoughts will become more than a passing activity. My family will read them in a new light. My vision for them to see ME again, to recognize and treasure any truths I learned during my journey we call life.

Just don’t SPILL IT… hard to clean up!

When I saw the Word of Day from FOWC; if you could have read my mind, it was so telling, “no not today.” What can I say about oil?   However, my guardian angel put an idea about OIL, I couldn’t resist.  There are many things to say about oil such as…

Has anyone ever noticed how “oil” is much like Truth, it always comes to the top?

God is good, He gives us little reminders of what is right, the opposite of RIGHT are words from the dictionary; Antonyms:
wrong, wrongfulness, left, two-handed, left-hand(a), leftmost, unsatisfactory, base, near(a), centrist, left-of-center, vicious, incorrect, immoral, larboard, parallel, center, erroneous, leftish, left-handed, liberal, nigh(a), condemnable, improper, inaccurate, deplorable, criminal, misguided, inopportune, far left, fallacious, mistaken, false, inside, reprehensible, wrongheaded, inappropriate, leftist, left-wing, oblique, middle-of-the-road, ambidextrous, port, incorrectly, wrongly

Not only does oil always come to the top as does truth; oil is often used for religious ceremonies of anointing the dying or sick, a Sacrament.
Oil is grand lubrication for everything, cooking with olive oil or coconut oil — a few examples. Oil, when you think of all its attributes, is no doubt one of God’s great gifts to humanity. Here below is a poem ~ John Newton.

When descending from the sky
The Bridegroom shall appear;
And the solemn midnight cry,
Shall call professors near:
How the sound our hearts will damp!
How will shame o’erspread each face!
If we only have a lamp,
Without the oil of grace.

Foolish virgins then will wake
And seek for a supply;
But in vain the pains they take
To borrow or to buy:
Then with those they now despise,
Earnestly they’ll wish to share;
But the best, among the wise,
Will have no oil to spare.

Wise are they, and truly blessed,
Who then shall ready be
But despair will seize the rest,
And dreadful misery:
Once, they’ll cry, we scorned to doubt,
Though in lies our trust we put;
Now our lamp of hope is out,
The door of mercy shut.

If they then presume to plead,
Lord open to us now;
We on earth have heard and prayed,
And with thy saints did bow:
He will answer from his throne,
Though you with my people mixed,
Yet to me you ne’er were known,
Depart, your doom is fixed.

O that none who worship here
May hear that word, Depart!
Lord impress a godly fear
On each professor’s heart:
Help us, Lord, to search the camp,
Let us not ourselves beguile;
Trusting to a dying lamp
Without a stock of oil.

How to NOT BE FOOLISH

The word of the day is “PARTISAN.”

William Harvey: Said this: “I avow myself the partisan of truth alone.”

The world today and “some” are foolish but they don’t want anyone to know it, so they just go along with the foolish media. Reminds me so much of this FAIRY TALE.

There is NOTHING THERE!

A STORY TO SPIN/TWIST ANY WAY YOU WANT!  A tale! TO CLICK ON …

 

 This Easter pray for discernment, pray to love the truth.   Don’t be FOOLISH!

Ah! Another Challenge, true story

I CHALLENGE YOU — What is your PHILOSOPHY?

For the Traditional Catholic such as myself, we take Holy Week serious, as should all those who think of themselves as Christians, and everyone concerned about life beyond this one. Because of this being Holy Week I will not be posting very much, perhaps here and there depending on if and when inspirations come my way. Please continue to read this short post for a little story below.

Check this story out don’t CLICK OFF or run away; it is not religious; however, it can be. Last week I was indulging in one of those old classic black and white movies found on Youtube. One of the characters is speaking, while discussing with another mentions his philosophy, and I adopted it for my secular philosophy as well. However, when you think about it long enough, it flows from this world our earthly life to the spiritual where we find everlasting happiness.

Ready?

The character and the entire theme of this comical vintage movie is based on these words;

“I want to be happy, but I can’t be happy unless I make you happy too!”

I like that philosophy; I wonder if anyone would take the challenge and think about what your philosophy is.

Share it if you will here on WordPress.  Sort of a Share your World to borrow the fantastic words of others here on WordPress.

The theme is delicious so we think of food.  I usually don’t photograph food, however, June of 2017 I was tempted and did capture an image of my favorite fruit, cherries while washing water drops appeared upon the cluster.  Later when I uploaded the image to my Corel Paint Shop Pro; wanting to experiment with an effect known as the Magnifying Lens this was the result.  Hope you find it interesting.

“Thou shalt take unto thee of all food that may be eaten, and thou shalt lay it up with thee: and it shall be food for thee and them.” [Genesis 6:21]
