A Stroke of Genius

One day in ordinary/uninspired times, I found myself walking along the sandy beach, thinking of the miserable conditions in the world today, and listening to the waves as the tide was coming in.

Suddenly, I had a STROKE of genius.


Why not pray to the Great, Almighty, Powerful God to bring all His enemies to naught; why not!. That would cause them (His enemies) to fail with the constant instilling of fear.


Please, oh Lord, be not our Judge but our Savior. We pray!

This Big Round World; a coloring book
From the BLUE sky with hints of TURQUOISE,
Far-reaching down to secure BROWN earth!
Seasonal Summer with RED hot sun,
Fall with shades of ORANGE tinted leaves,
Winters are cold, and colored snow WHITE
At last, the time to welcome Spring GREEN!
When the long dark nights are BLACK; it seems
The sun sleeping in-between the GRAY
Soft silvery PINK and PURPLE clouds!
This Big Round World; a coloring book!

May the month of color see here for a fun prompt

Friday Fictioneers

Stop! — PERFECT!

Friday Fictioneers story with 100 words including the prompt image below:

“Okay, students,” the drama teacher yelped out! “We need some new ideas, our next assignment is coming up, and it’s up to you!”
“We are going for a long ride today to discover.”
As they drove along for hours, they passed rural roads, crossed bridges, and passed deserted areas; interesting sites, yes!
Yet, they could not agree.
Suddenly they all screamed harmoniously — STOP!
“Perfect!”

“Let your imagination get to work; many ideas to work with right here! Remember that abandoned movie set years ago,” said the teacher. “Little did they know then what we can do with it today!”

EMPTY — but not for long!

Yesterday was Good Friday, and I spent several hours in Church participating in the liturgies of the memories, as we are encouraged by Holy Church.
Today, the Church refers to as Holy Saturday; I feel empty, knowing many Christians want His Resurrection but not His Cross; I cry!
Remembering how He was placed into the tomb and closed, separated, I feel deep mourning. We, the laity and the Church spend at Our Lord’s sepulcher, this day meditating on His Sacred Passion and Death. There is no Mass; the sacred altar is bare.

Knowing that Jesus at any time could have said NO!
STOP!  I will redeem them without all this suffering, 
but would we appreciate it if He did?

This is the Mystery of our Faith!  Remember too, how SHORT
our life is on earth, even 100 years is short compared to eternity!

#WritePhoto — Distance Calls!

Look out there and see
You are not alone
Off in the distance, see the light
It's there!
Just reach out!
Grasp!
Don't give up; stretch, reach across!
Deception keeps you apart —
Ignore that torrent!
A chimera an illusion
Delay NOT!
It's later than you think!

Reena’s Xploration

Tell the Truth but do it tactfully

Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do, and what is right to do. I have a right, to tell the truth, and to do it tactfully!

A couple of quotes, there are so many but I liked these two.

 “Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.”- Spencer Johnson.

 “Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life.”- Albert Schweitzer. — Abortion comes to my mind!

Be happy, be ethical.

I Believe Because

Today March 8th IS —

March Eighth

According to Wikipedia, today is Woman’s Day!

The saddest part of today is that most women neglect the only woman who deserves to be remembered today and every day. Mary was so favored by God; she was overflowing, full of grace before her conception, He knew her. God’s Masterpiece, she was created with a particular role, to be the Mother of God. 

   God knew that we, His creatures loved by God, would need a Redeemer! For Our God who knows all, He the Creator of all understood that humans who were created in His image, in that we and we alone have an immortal soul, a beginning without an end. His Divine plan was to become a man with a human nature remaining Divine; through the power of the Holy Ghost and taking a human nature from Mary, His chosen mother. Through her free will, she raised the ideal of womanhood by her obedience and fortitude.

Christ loved His mother; her fiat pleased Him. What an example for us, yet today she remains ignored as Jesus was and still ignored by many who claim to follow Him. Many who think of themself as Christian refuse to imitate Christ as we are called to do, love His mother as He did. 

Luke 1; 41 forward

41 And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb: and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

42 And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

44 For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.

45 And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.

46 And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord:

So APROPOS and dVerse

I posted this some time ago on an OPEN LINK but it is so apropos even more so today, I dare post it again! If you think you saw it previously in the past, you did!

The time is now; that Grand Plan
Prep, don’t forget stock a drink
Juice, maybe freshly squeezed, — please!
Make sure your plan is at hand.

A rainstorm of fire will form
Wishing life — under the sea.
The dead, we will all envy.
God deliver us, our plea!

Attach to God or detached?
Winds roll us as tumbleweeds.
Where O’where rosary beads?
Never late, long as we breathe.

Tongue-tied fear viewing sunsets!
Green flashes for all to see.
When it’s over, sun to rise.
A world becomes very wise.

Now to know the Master’s sign.
Every knee bends at His name.
The world; a canvas so blank
We have God’s mercy to thank.

Daily Word Prompt

What! Why Me!

The Daily Word Prompt

My short story hopefully has a beginning, middle and ending!

++++

One fine day, set on minding my own business, I set out for a long walk in the park. A little dog ran up to me, jumping, growling showing his teeth but did not bark. The incident startled me and took me to bounce back, but then the pup started to cower at my feet. I petted him to give him confidence hoping he would perceive my natural love of animals. Strange as it sounds, the doggy dropped from its mouth what appeared to be a wallet packed with money. I saw an angry woman with a baleful voice running toward me, yelling, “thief, thief.” 

Where is Perry Mason when I need him? I thought.
