dVerse, poetry

Blinded in order to See

I enjoy thinking of the mysterious ways that God works.  The older I become the more likely I ponder.  This was a poem composed last year, I re-post here for dVerse Open-Link-Night.  To join in click here to follow instructions.

Blinded by God in order to see

Boats that seem to melt or sink
disappear beyond the vast
horizon. Onward they sail.
—Yonder to and fro they go!
To the eyes it ceases; Gone!
Yet, where? We must confess them
They are there, somewhere we know!
Is truly Faith surpassing!

The eclipse —horizon as
hidden mysteriously!
Looking back through time we go!

Remember Dear Saint Paul was
Blinded by God in order
To see. Mystical is God
Indeed our Faith surpassing!

#JusJoJan, SoCS, true story

Pondering Padre Pio, his story

Haven’t posted now for a few days, just been busy pondering instead. Here on WordPress, some interesting people come up with prompts to encourage us to write. Today I accept the challenge of one such prompt, “Movie Titles”;SoCS is asking to use the last title of the movie we watched. 

Last night I watched a Youtube movie titled “Padre Pio” for those who do not know this person all you need do is search the internet, he is one worth remembering. 

The link to the very long and moving movie is … https://tinyurl.com/sa7n7u5

The film and my pondering have haunted me with this thought: 

The Church teaches us that Jesus Christ suffered and died for ALL, but not all people care about it! In the Garden just before He was taken to begin His Passion of death, He saw our faces. Each and every one of us He saw. He knew who would appreciate His reason for coming into the world; His goal was not to live but to die for us. He began to sweat His Blood when He saw the faces of those who would not care. 

Thinking again, how there is no such thing as “Time” when it refers to God the thought of Him suffering just for me that day, centuries before I was born, overwhelms my mind today!

SoCS & JusJoJan and recipe to try!

Are you fasting or just hungry?  “This bowl is too hot, this one is too cold but this one is just right!”

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “ow.” 

If you find your tummy growling think about a nice bowl of vegetable egg flour soup for one.
Heat one cup of vegetable broth with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of sesame oil and a little soy together. Bring to a boil; while waiting to boil; mix one teaspoon of corn starch into a little cold water and stir. Add a pinch of salt and white pepper to suit your taste. Now beat one egg, and when the broth is raging mad and bubbly, slowly trickle in the beaten egg and corn starch, mixing everything together for that delicious BOWL of soup, on a SNOWY day or anytime. Use Chicken broth if you prefer. Make it your own by adding green onions, carrots, or …?…..

The Three Wise Men of today!

 The Three Wise MEN!

#1. In alphabetical order;   Hollywood actor Pierce Brosnan, who used to be a ‘Never Trumper’, has praised President Trump for the booming American economy.

*********

#2. Noah Feldman, Democrats Witness Feldman noted that “according to the Constitution, impeachment is a process, not a vote,” and that while a modest delay would not pose a problem, a lengthy delay would be a “serious problem.” 

“Impeachment as contemplated by the Constitution does not consist merely of the vote by the House, but of the process; sending articles to the Senate for trial. Both parts are necessary to make an impeachment under the Constitution: The House must send the articles and send managers to the Senate to prosecute the impeachment. And the Senate must hold a trial.”

*********

Finally #3 —  Jeff Van Drew, a Democrat, recently flipped to Republican over the impeachment (his last straw). Drew was saying of impeachment, “even if we start to do it, we also come to the point that we realize that nothing is going to happen in the Senate. So at the end of the day, it will be a failed process.”
