When I was little, I had a potpourri of Old Leather boots, past on to me by my big sister. As time went on, her euphoria was all about the color yellow! As in a Turmeric flower, bright yellow pennies, even the bright yellow of the Lazy Lizard.
How silly she is, me, I’ll stick with my dreams of Sea Serpents and Mermaids.
Hand me down treasure Precious keepsake fun to take Eyeing her new stuff
I love this challenge, and for some strange reason today I wanted to write about myself, a confession.
Somehow I was inspired to compose about my journey of Faith!
Most think the Church has changed with the recent Modern Popes, but in truth, it didn’t change at all, it just became smaller. Luke 18:8 “I say to you that he will quickly revenge them. But yet the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, Faith on earth?”

After a few moments, asking for inspiration, a BRIGHT IDEA was wrought.
Faith was lost in the past, and like a HERMIT CRAB, I was living in a shell.
Slowly in the early ’70s, I found myself growing warmer to hot like the TROPICS. Realizing if there was a God, my choices were not His.
Something was amiss! I desired the sweet flesh of the Blessed Sacrament, but instead, it was only bread. The Catholic Church changed, I thought! I began to pray.
I yearned to be cleansed; where was this fountain where the Water Lily/LOTUS waited for me? Somewhere I knew for His promise was forever. Seek, and you shall find, like BABY’S BREATH, a beginning again; I found the POMEGRANATE, the Sweet Flesh, red Blood of He who died for me many seeds for all to see, the Church still existed. Like a PEACOCK with its many eyes, God does see our deeds, He cares!
About Tradition Gates of Hell will not prevail. Seek, and you shall find!
OPPOSITES ATTRACT This challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use ofantithesis in our writing. Our words this week are:
– ascend and descend
– hope and despair
My post in the form of a Haibun with Haiku
God indeed works in mysterious ways. Take life as an example. There are those people who are their best when they are at their lowest; in other words, they seem to sink or descend to the lowest point before rising to ascend to great heights. That is the way of life, and even God Himself fell three times when He carried His Cross before He rose. He never despaired, but hoped for our salvation.
What inspires? Listen carefully as the song, America the Beautiful, inspired by purple mountain majesties. Our imagination, too, is kindling for a vision. Pray for a monsoon of grace, an epiphany, imagine drinking hot cocoa while pondering the unknown. So much still to discover, as Adam and Eve found the fig leaf, you to can find. Something is there waiting for you so away with the fake rubber ducky, away with the cheese puffs, say hello to wine and sweet dessert, time to explore your mind, and unearth your hidden talent.
Good-bye to ducky
Discover wine and dining
Dig up your talent
The Mass of All Times, in one way, is imperceptible “time-traveling.”
Too subtle to even perceive, one might describe it as invisible. Unlike the service known today in your neighboorhood, Catholic Church as the Novus Ordo to distinguish in order to publish the new service by Paul VI in 1969.
I speak here of the attributes of the traditional Latin Mass only.
Invisible in the sense that we are here and we are also there. Our invisible soul is going back, back through time all the way to a day which Christ crucified on the Cross and purchased the human race — redeemed us!
When we kneel there contained within our physical bodies during the consecration of the bread and wine, time is as if suspended, postponed.
Having an unbroken history from the present day to the distant past, it also establishes an inspiring covenant of unity across the world everywhere.
The sacred language used is as a Pentecost again commemorating the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the apostles. The traditional Latin Mass not only provides universality for all people of all times, till the end of time.
But, within the Mass, Christ perpetuates Himself in the world; likewise, through the Mass, the world can gain perpetual life in Christ.
With all their power
Poorly fail to end His Mass
Seek, and you shall find
Best way to get attention, in my opinion, is to ask for advice or ask a question like the title of this post today! Daily Inkling wants to know.
We find SOLITUDE when we dream, we write, compose and discover our sub-conscience.
Remembering, recollection, hindsight of a dream while traveling through
space and time. My trip began early one morning while still dark, dozed off on my coach and experienced a rare dream; rare because it was one that I remembered every detail upon returning.
While in my fantasy state, trying to explain how God always was and how did He become God anyway; boggled with that thought. I began to imagine if there never was a God there would be NOTHING! That was when the question entered, begging for an answer, only an atheist can answer. Is nothing, something?
Fantasy and back Question without an answer Only through our dreams

Mother most amiable; just one of the salutations of Mary, the Mother of God; explainedwithin the Litany of Loreto.
The Bible gathers our understanding contained within the pages of Luke chapter 1; her soul magnifies the Lord, the more we honor her, the more we will be embellished with grace to love her Son, Jesus Christ. She is, after all, God’s gracious Masterpiece of creation because she was created to be A LIVING TABERNACLE, His shelter for nine months. Nothing dishonored can be The Vessel that carries God. EVER!
