Words Matter: Think about it! When we speak or write, success is measured by our words and how we use them. This week I learned a few words such as Gully-Washer and today the world Pavonine a word that is not even in the online Thesaurus; Looking it up I found the origin is Mid 17th century from Latin Pavoninus, from pavo, pavon – ‘peacock.’
Concerning color might be greening to blues—description for the color used for artists and crafty persons.
Same old, same old, every day don’t you ever get tired of the same familiar faces, voices you hear when you listen to the daily news? The solution is to change the channel. Most of the time, it’s all fake news anyway; why bother to waste time hearing their twist on who did what, when, why, and where. Even these so-called Christmas movies these days are so mundane, girl, meets boy and so on, and so on and on.
Decisions, decisions if you truly can’t decide, why not stop and pray to the only One True God. Try it, you might be surprised.
Who is the One True God? Who showed us how to carry our cross, who lived a life of humility. Who but God could rise from the dead, and no one, not even the Jews in His day denied it. Humility; fighting for Truth.
This weekend challenge inspired the memory of looking back through the adventures of my life. The past seems to surface as we age! Yes, and all that junk that slipped through my life, both in my mind and hands. Thinking now of all the yard sales, with all that junk scattered, yet, not all was junk to me, perhaps to the seller, yes; buyer a treasure waiting for discovery. My best experience was finding this work of art, two statues of the Holy Family, about 12″ tall, one of Blessed Mother, the other Saint Joseph holding Baby Jesus, dressed with several paint chips proudly vintage. As I purchased, the seller remarked, “I knew someone would come along and appreciate these.” He did not know how actual his words were. Not the best picture below, but to give you a glimpse of my prize.
Catholic accused of worship of statues how ridiculous and they who accuse know it!
Most of us/all of us have treasures that reminds of this or that! We feel bad if it gets lost, stolen, or broke. Admit it!
Religious pictures, statues are meant only to be an inspiration to a Catholic. Amen!
In the meantime, I enjoyed repairing the few nicks and chips on these statues, knowing they are only made with ceramics of sort.
Have you ever had an angel encounter; I have! But SURPRISE, that is not what this blog post is about.
It is about being HAPPY; I am a very happy old lady, going downhill and happy about that, thinking this may be my last Christmas. (or maybe not) lived a happy childhood, a happy marriage, and I know why I was born in the first place. Made a lot of mistakes, more than I can count — told God I was sorry. That was a peaceful, happy feeling!
The best part of this blog is below, please continue to read.
A few days ago, I found this video about an angel story, it’s not very long, under 10 minutes, but the really happy part is the story, yes—but reading the comments. Since watching this video, I have gone back just to finish reading the comments because they wrought so much happiness within my soul. Not only will you feel beyond happy just knowing, but you will also thrive in hope too!
Pondering on a phrase I heard in an old black and white movie I watched on Youtube recently. “The end only means a new beginning.” TRANSITION for lack of a better word.
At birth, the beginning of life created body and soul. Even when the body dies, it is the beginning of new life for our soul. Believe it or not! Time will tell! Eternity?
As we mature, each birthday ends a year but begins a new year.
We as children graduate from school ending, but beginning an adult life.
Let’s look at the little things we do. Our workday ends, relaxation begins.
We fall asleep only to awake to the beginning of a new day.
There is an end to the “temporal” of this world. A movie; ends! Read a book until the end! Music ends! Our pets, plants their life ends! Why?
Because these things only pertain to the present life of this world. They are temporary, not eternal. Their souls are mortal, not immortal, as endless.
