Do Beeee of Good CHARACTER

The prompt today is the word “Character.”  I love prompts because they always make me dust off my brain.  I only wish I had the time to participate in them all, but I do have a life outside this “box” of electronics.  Today I plan to clean out my shed, I better put on my mask to protect me from the dust.  LOL!

Here is my take today on the subject of Character click if you want to join.

Today the world is living with so many different characters and trying to get along is a challenge itself. — A confusion wrought by change, black is now white, right is now wrong, but what was wrong is now the new normal.

There is a conspiracy to rid the world of God. Anyone who denies this is either part of it or one with their head in the sand. How do I know this, LOOK AROUND?

In my 80 years of life, I have met many characters most with integrity, others eccentric, or cranks. Lucky me, I get along with all of them, some better than others. They all have something to give.

The world is so filled today with chaos; who are we, or mainly who am I to say who is correct or mistaken to believe in a conspiracy. I have reached to point in my life, to pray for truth, let the world go by, and hope that when it stops for me to get off, I will be ready to face God when He asks me like He will ask all of us. HOW DID YOU KEEP THE FAITH?

An Explanation— Gift

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt –Identity – July 13, 2020

One day while I minded my own business, a couple of men tried to stump me. I knew by the tone of their voice what they intended. It so happened and unknown to me, my scapular was hanging out from beneath my outer garment—those who do not know a scapular, a blessed religious article sacred to Traditional Catholics.
They heckled and said,
“do you really believe that piece of cloth will save you”?
“No,” I said, “it is my identity.”
I continued to explain how an officer wears a badge, or others might wear a logo to identify themself.
To wear a Cross or medal is not superstitious as many WANT to believe; it means merely we identify ourselves with Jesus, Mary His Mother, who was with Him from His conception till His death. Now that is worth in which to identify for those who believe.scapular

Working my Things to do List

Get out your thinking caps and join the chips 

 

 

Oh! Put a spotlight; “things-to-do list.”
Fog dims my view things I might have missed.
Start arranging what is essential.
This job, I hope, to be quite simple.

Need a vivid imagination —
A pyramid, a broad foundation.
Plus fragrant tangled vines of Jasmine
Many hours of work begins, Amen

A menu from bottom to the top
Pull to and fro as bubble gum pops
Back again forward turning to twist
Singing and dancing so go this list.

A well-done job finishing at last
Once and for all look back to the past.
Done! Now as visiting my hometown                             
Finally satisfied I sit down.

Look and see that same old tired scarecrow.
Still standing in the sand. Oh, oh, oh!

A Jibberjabber post about doubt

I DOUBT

I doubt that I could fly, although in my dreams I can.
I doubt I will live to be 100 — at least I hope I don’t!
I doubt I will ever win a poetry contest, but I love writing them!

Thinking about what I know for sure, hmmm!
Time continues to march on with or without me,
and the sun will rise each day … or will it?scratch

His Masterpiece

DressedInBlue

Looking down into the Grand Canyon is scary indeed!
Looking up into the Niagara Falls, the Power of God!
I see His aura surrounding Him among His creations;
Totality gathers around His masterpiece, His mother!
Created especially for her role.
I think of her as my wishing well
With an antique rose in her hair
Upon it, a tiny dewdrop.
Without her, only a foggy harbor.

The Day the Trees Spoke!

Here at WordPress with dVerse we are challenged to write a prose with 144 words only using the phrase “These memories were left here with the trees” — the line from the poem “How to Write a Poem in a Time of War.” dVerse calls it prose from poetry.

+++++++++++ 144 words below ++++++++++++

As the story is told, there existed one man, one woman, Adam and Eve. Living in a lush garden, without cares everything perfect; even the fiercest animals were gentle and kind.
God gave them one commandment, not to touch or eat of the tree standing there. Delightful to look at but deadly!
Curiosity lost; with the touching of the tree, fruit eaten; the downfall of the human race.
Not the end! But the beginning!
God in His mercy did not curse the trees; instead wrought our salvation, offering another chance to humanity by the use of a tree.
Listen now to the crackling of the leaves underfoot as they searched for one specific an exceptional tree, fashioned to form the Cross to hold the Divine Body of God. The trees in the forest spoke, and “These memories were left here with the trees” FOREVER!

Questions with Answers … thoughts

My SYW POST for Share Your World
The questions with answers

Why do we seem to respect the dead more than the living?
I believe it is because after a person has died, we see all that was good in them, whatever deeds in life negative, forgotten.
The goal for all; to save our immortal souls, there is a life beyond this life! We respect the dead because we have hope that they died in God’s grace and have achieved their goal.

Why is beauty associated with morality? Or not?
Having physical beauty is a grave temptation, and especially today, many are weak and fall for the superficial comments they hear from others. A beautiful woman attracts attention, and often it is attention from the wrong person. Mothers train your daughters to be humble, modest, and ladylike.

Have gadgets and apps taken away emotions?
I think the emotions wrought from gadgets are different; they are there but not as genuine as natural emotions.

Is there a perfect life? What’s your version of an ideal experience if you care to share? A perfect life is doing the Will of God for that is the only possibility that will bring you happiness and peace of mind. Many will say; what is the Will of God? Begin with knowing the Ten Commandments and pray daily for the grace of discernment. “Ask, and you shall receive.” Most importantly, when we experience the failures, disappointments we should unite them with the life of Christ, that always helps.
The perfect life is if we save our soul, there is only one tragedy in life, that is when we lose our soul. If you put popularity ahead of God’s Will you are heading in the wrong direction, most of the time the majority is on the wrong side. Human respect is an evil.

“Human respect is excessive regard for the opinions or esteem of other men. … Concern for the opinion of others may lead one to act against moral principles and thus to do evil in order to gain the esteem of others.”

I am grateful always when I look back at my life, (now aged 79) my digresses straying away from God, offending Him, my mortal sins, still He kept me from dying in my sins. I was led out of my Faith, into a conciliar form of religion. Ecumenical in nature, forgetting the First Commandment, everything I learned was put on the back burner.
I am grateful I finally found my home again, the Traditional Faith.

Thank you SYW for the opportunity to share!
