#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 …?…..

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.

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
