My Haibun and Haiku or Senyru below:

 
Most Sashay through life without giving little thought to the end.
Time, also known as the world; more than breath, less than an illusion.
God’s design is all in all. We desire yet wonder what we yearn.

Purpose of life be
Happy in eternity
Know Love and Serve God

Footsteps
Ask, and it shall be given you:
seek, and you shall find:
knock, and it shall be opened to you.”

Why I love TODAY!

Thank you, God, for this glorious morning in June, I woke up today to another day, with so much to thank you for.  Feeling so happy I sat down and wrote a poem to express my feelings just now about Mondays.

Drowsy on Mondays
Yeah — I survived the weekend
Seven days ahead
Scheming reciting with joy
I’ll do all that tomorrow

The Only MNEMONIC we will need

 

Other tools to remind us of “things” are useful, but the Cross of Christ is a treasure indeed!

The Cross of Christ is seen today in images, pictures, hanging in churches as smooth, slick straight sample of wood that was sanded and made perfect. The Cross on that Good Friday; imagine instead wood knotted, splintered, gnarled, rough and damp.

Why is it that many Christians see in their own way the cross without the suffering? Their cross scarcely a remembrance, symbol of His instrument of death.

If you consider yourself Christian, recognize the cross for what it is.  The only MNEMONIC you will TRULY NEED.  

ReligiousScene

We read in the Bible how Our Lord called St. Peter, Satan! Because even St. Peter refused the idea of crucifixion. St. Peter did not wish the suffering Jesus. Our Lord words, “He turning, said to Peter: Go after me, Satan, thou art a scandal unto me: because thou dost not relish the things that are of God, but the things that are of men.
[Matthew 16:23]
also in:
The Haydock Bible it is explained of 1 Corinthians 1 Ver. 18. For the word of the cross. That is the preaching that the Son of God, both God, and man, died nailed to an infamous cross. Folly is looked upon as ridiculous and incredible, by all obstinate unbelievers that perish: but it received as the work of God, and an effect of his divine power, by such as are saved. (Witham)

“And he said to all: If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”
[Luke 9:23]
Traditional Catholics of today and Catholics from all centuries; the past, understand this to mean, we are to get up on that Cross with Christ, do this by offering yourself to Him and accepting His Will not running away from it, nor removing His Body from the cross. Face His suffering.
“And taking bread, he gave thanks and broke; and gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of me.”
[Luke 22:19]
Many Christians believe that God loves you when He showers you with riches or with no problems in life. One wonders why so many wealthy people give in to suicide, despair. In truth, God loves you when He allows you to share with Him in His life, His pain. “Come follow Me; “I say to you: but unless you do penance, you shall all likewise perish.”
[Luke 13:3]
Let us never forget; there is a MAN on that Cross.

DANCE with the devil

Have you ever wondered why when we read the lives of the early Christians and Saints, how God spoke directly to them, while today Heaven is so silent? Or like Thomas, a Kempis said, “The grace of God is not communicated to the worldly-minded.” Perhaps it was because without today’s discoveries they were able to HEAR Him.

People today dance with the devil, Internet, cell phones, smartphones, iPhones, Nintendo Wii, Xbox, play stations, iPad, Facebook and snapchat, apps for all ages, androids of every kind, headphones or earpieces destroying developing brains; these are the important things, of today.

God tries to speak to us, but bedazzlement and blindness take over our senses, and we walk in darkness. Without realizing it, we deliberately block His Voice because we prefer anarchy instead of the song of silence. We begin to believe we will live forever, and neither God nor the devil exists. Our youth today is re-wired.
Teens have become brain-dead androids themselves with new noise that interferes with thoughts of their purpose in life. We say we are Christian but do any of us seriously take the time to consider how our sins have nailed Him to that Cross. God is so easy to forget when garbage constantly and presently is fed into our thoughts night and day. Every few months a new item is on the market, and of course, young adults and children have to have the hottest brand or else their life is over, so it seems.

Many or most young people cannot hear God calling them to their vocation; their ears are stopped up with the music of the world indoctrinating their minds with sex, drugs, and anger.

This world of ours comes to an end the moment we take our last breath. We can’t change our will because it is set at that moment forever. If it was the noise, distractions, and chaos, we desired in life, why would we suddenly in eternity want harmony, peace, and love of God?
