Holy Thursday… TODAY!

My Easter Quote… “The very first Easter taught us this: that life never ends and love never dies.” ~ Kate McGahan

Writer’s Quotes challenge, join in with an Easter Quote, click here

Easter is the most important day for those following the Church because it proves that Jesus Christ is God, who else could have risen from the dead, and the Jewish people never denied that fact! God bless them!

Today is Holy Thursday, it reminds us of the First Mass that Traditional Catholics enjoy, although hard to find these days not unlike the modern service you will find in your neighbor churches. The True Mass of all times actually suspends time. Believe it!

There we will meet Jesus, Body, Blood, Soul, and His Divinity at Holy Communion.

Today while searching for something spiritual to watch, I found this video, perhaps you too will find it interesting about Holy Thursday. Video link

Fandango Flashback, FPQ

C.S. Lewis answers #FPQ Question

Prompts are always fun and inspiring, a challenge for sure, they make you think!

Two, not one of Fandango famous prompts are below:

Fandango’s flashback is always interesting and this one I posted a while ago; hopefully will make you smile if you read it to the end, that is! Here is the link —> Click

Now to his, Fandango Provocative Question from this week his blog; he asks! “Do you think, given everything that is going on in the world, that children born these days will have a worse or better life than their parents? Why do you feel that way?” I will attempt to answer this time through the words of C.S. Lewis and his famous quotes. Read together they result in good advice for all generations!

“Human history is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.”—C.S. Lewis … “And out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we call human history—money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery—the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.”― C.S. Lewis

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.” ― C.S. Lewis … (because) “God can’t give us peace and happiness apart from Himself because there is no such thing.” ― C.S. Lewis

#WordPrompt… It’s Back

Word Press Prompt, this month it is the world BRIDGE; Yes WORLD!

Bridge, so many kinds of them, see here to get my point! Click to see how many

The purpose is to connect!  So why are the governments doing everything possible to disconnect us?
The media is, in my opinion, the dominant spark at "full speed ahead" aimed at the sheeple.  This quote by Winston Churchill makes the point.  "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

Life is a journey, and we all want to live in peace with happiness for our loved ones; we travel along, we arrive at a bridge; before we cross, be careful to know what is on the other end of the bridge.  (The connection)  These days do your research, don't blindly cross that bridge!  And above all, pray!  "My longing for truth was a single prayer." ~Edith Stein

As we begin to cross the bridge, it may seem gloomy, dark, and full of wonder; what will we find as we connect to the other side of life?
"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." ~Plato

Prayer is light, don't do it alone, don't just follow along AND "Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day."  Jesus Christ

Interesting Wall Post — No! Not a wall poster a post!

The prompts are so delicious I wish I had the time to address them one by one.  However, sometimes I can't think of something worthy, just silly stuff, and yes, I do silly stuff occasionally and enjoy reading it as well.
Today I don't have my "silly" hat on, so I researched the word "Wall." Interesting word (wall) a word that takes you through various paths.   During my exploring around I found this interesting quote that reminds me of today's politics, and yet at the same time, it was religious, at least to me!

RDP Tuesday asks today what we save?  I like to save exciting quotes; this one below is a saver for me by Haruki Murakami, a Japanese author.  He was born in 1949;  there is much to read about him on the Internet; and below is one of his quotes I chose to  SAVE AND post for the "Weekly Prompts Weekend challenge."   

************


“If there is a hard, high wall and an egg that breaks against it, no matter how right the wall or how wrong the egg, I will stand on the side of the egg. Why? Because each of us is an egg, a unique soul enclosed in a fragile egg. Each of us is confronting a high wall. The high wall is the system which forces us to do the things we would not ordinarily see fit to do as individuals . . . We are all human beings, individuals, fragile eggs. We have no hope against the wall: it’s too high, too dark, too cold. To fight the wall, we must join our souls together for warmth, strength. We must not let the system control us — create who we are. It is we who created the system. (Jerusalem Prize acceptance speech, JERUSALEM POST, Feb. 15, 2009)”
― Haruki Murakami

The Book of Wisdom

I bet walking along, alone on the beach reminds us that our life’s journey is only one way. We need the wisdom to get through it. Wisdom is the prompt for today from the beach.

Also Wisdom

The book of Wisdom is a book within the Catholic Bible in the Latin tradition, a book that is omitted (among seven others) from the Protestant Bible. It is known as the Wisdom of Solomon. It also contains many prophecies of Christ’s coming, passion, resurrection, and other Christian mysteries.

One favorite quote of mine is from the book of Wisdom Chapter 1, verse 4
“For wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subject to sins.”

The Bible quote above explains much about today’s politicians throughout the world.

Don’t miss the following other prompt details below:

Looking today at what bloggers everywhere are paying attention notice that

Some other favorite quotes of mine are below because the make sense to me!
"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing."
― Socrates

"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect)."
― Mark Twain

My Letter to God

My post today is combining two inspirations from our popular Marsha Always Write and dVerse introduction with Verse Epistle (poetic letter;} my letter can be read near the bottom of this post, you can’t miss!

Quotes on family 

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” -Helen Keller

with your family in the beautiful land of life!” -Albert Einstein

There are evil people today who want to destroy the family. We must not allow their narrative to rule. You know who and what they are!

Families are gifts from God, a mother, father, and if God blessed you with little ones, take care of their souls and bodies. Perhaps it was God’s blessings and His will that a loving couple adopts.

Four adopted grandchildren are a vital force within my family. I love them, and they, in turn, give love. I often wonder what life would be without them for all of us.  

From the Bible, we read in Mark chapter 10, verse 6:  

“But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female. For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother; and shall cleave to his wife. And they two shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh.” 

Below I am inspired by dVerse suggestion to write a poetic letter; my attempt at the Verse Epistle

Letter to God,  
Dear Master, did I ever thank you for my family?
Whatever would I do without this gift from you?
It is true they keep me quite busily.

My mother would often say when children are young, they step on your toes; when older, they step on your heart. Isn't that what we all do to you? Did I ever say sorry? Thank you for another day, an opportunity to say just that.  How sorry I am for having offended you.  

Of all the gifts you have blessed me, is my family defined as LOVE, the greatest gift of all.  Thank you, I can't say that enough; I am so grateful.

Continue pouring down your grace on this world, never give up on us, PLEASE!
With returning love,
Just me again!   

My letter above in poetic form below

Mom's words I remember well
Wise in what she wanted to tell
Family steps on toes and hearts

I, too, like a child, offended you
Isn't that what we all do?
Thank you for another day

Did I ever say sorry dear Lord?
Today together in needful accord.
Sorry always for offending you

This greatest gift of Love you gave
Even when I misbehave
My family, my treasure all from you

One more thing before I end
Continue; your grace we depend
Never give up, trusting you !
Ah! Another Challenge

God said, “Let there be light.”

“Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself.”
by Desiderius Erasmus


“Let their way become dark and slippery, and let the angel of the Lord pursue them.” Psalms 34:6

God said, “Let there be light.”
Did He create dark as well, or
was darkness always there?
I wonder. Dark the absence of light!
