The Wonders of Thee!

My inspiration from the image presented below by one of my favorite bloggers at #Keepitalive

Look and see the wonders of Thee!
Your creations, a celestial star we call the Sun
Our gift — to give us what we need!
Your feathered friends graced with wings.
Sing and dance, surrounded by a painted sky
Oh, and so high! A child sees!
A child as to us created in your image —
To live forever with Thee!

Share your World

A New Year, what’s next?

One good reason to participate in this challenge known as Share-your-world is to allow you to examine your conscience, a big something for me!

See the questions by clicking above to share your world. We want to know!

For New Year’s Eve, I will be sleeping at my age but will awake slightly when I hear the much younger generation celebrating with what they call making as much noise as possible. Jan 1, 2022, I will attend Holy Mass, a Holy Day described on the Traditional Catholic calendar. 

Next year, let us all pray God will give us all the following year. His patience is incredible; perhaps He will only purify the world as He did in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The greatest lesson I learned is that I don’t need to wear that mask everywhere as in 2020. Grateful too, that most people if not all in my area also figured that out!  

Only 6Sentence

Impossible — NOT!

Today I begin again, looking at the challenges, stopping at the Six Sentence prompt encourging to write about the word GUIDE. When I see that word, I immediately think of the HOLY TRINITY!

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

It is impossible to explain the Trinity in six sentences, nor with all the words in the dictionary because it can't be explained; it is FAITH!

Only ONE GOD, but Three Person, entirely in agreement, but each has a purpose.  God the Father is the Creator, God the Son, the Redeemer, and the Holy Ghost is our GUIDE.

If you ask, the Holy Ghost He will definitely guide you to the Truth, not because I say so, but because God says so, "Ask and you shall receive."

Thinking about the mystery of the Trinity, speaking for myself, boggles my mind; however, the idea of not being able to rationalize this mystery keeps me humble; God loves the lowly and hates the proud. 

I love a good mystery, and the mystery of the Trinity is worth thinking about because in heaven, we won't need FAITH; we will know!


Ah! Another Challenge

ETERNAL AS IN A Prompt word, or try this one, how do you see yourself. Mirror, mirror on the wall!

Today we live in an age of offended, everyone seems to be. Well offended or not this is my belief and I’ll post what I believe not what others want me to say.

Eternal means no beginning, only God. The Trinity had no beginning but always was; All other false artificial gods had a start if only in the mind of a demon or human person,( one of God’s creatures.) God created us with an immortal soul and, therefore, WE are eternal in a sense; since we will have no end. We will live with God or without Him. Depending on our soul when we take our last breath, it is fixed at that time, no more free will after death. Yet, we live, but where?

A movie out these days warned against. Perhaps because today things are very twisted and eternal might mean demonic.

Now for how do I see myself. At my age these days, it is interesting, my life is behind me, where most reading here, your life is ahead of you and so it should be.

I don’t worry about how I see myself anymore since I am reasonably happy in my day, with little regrets. I advise, don’t take it with you! If you have regret, you should work on correcting it now!


Today at least, for myself, no regrets through lots of begging the man upstairs, tears of sorrow, and resignation to His will. It works; try it!


Right now, I am begging for humility since I know for a fact that He, hates pride.

Having a blog on WordPress can be at times humiliating. Especially when one sets their mind to post-truth instead of fiction. Post what you believe.

true story

About Me!

Okay, however, for me, it was in 1982 that I woke up. Looking back, that was a long time ago through the mind of the “looker” (me). The story was at that time I was hung up on one particular Bible verse, trying to figure out what it meant, at the same time reading Catholic prophecy.

Now…setting the stage for the reader, I was constantly searching (but for what?); one day, I found my rosary all tangled in a box of trinkets. What! I thought I should be praying this as I was taught in school. Yet, today (1982), the rosary is not part of the “team” anymore. Still, I thought I would begin again, and I did. I began to pray the rosary.

As I am typing, I realize I am getting off track from Fandango’s question, the question that inspired my thinking, he asked —> “How much have you and your priorities changed over the past twenty years?
I think what I will do is finish my story in a future post but to answer Fandango’s question, I will say one day in 1982, something happened to me like lightning, and I realized the Bible verse was all about the Catholic church adapting to the world. Adapting to the world, it changed, and today it is no longer the same religion I was taught back in the 40’s 50’s.


This knowledge that strangely showed to me was a shock and made me, through God’s grace,so STRONG in my Faith, the Faith that will never, ever change. Every day now since I recovered from Covid last month, I feel my faith has grown deeper with an understanding beyond words. Don’t be surprised if my future post reflect this change.

My Sanctuary with images

This week the Weekend Challenge from partner GC and me is Sanctuary.

SANCTUARY

My Sanctuary, without thinking more than one second is my Faith. If only I could explain, but there are no words on earth to interpret. Therefore, I usually try to play down my feelings since I can’t clarify them.
I will therefore post a few images for the readers here and pray God will pass on to you what I know to be true.

Today I am for some reason inspired to post these images.

I realize many beliefs do not allow the suffering Christ on their cross, but Traditional Catholics strongly believe you can not have the resurrection without first the suffering!

My Parade of Poems — Vintage Baltimore Catechism

My parade of poems is based and inspired by The Baltimore Catechism. Catholics born before the Modern changes in the Vatican (approx. 1960) will remember learning their catechism from these text books.

One day not very long ago, (last week) I was thinking of the Haiku, a form of poetry that is popular here on WordPress and fun to write. Thinking of a theme, why not The Baltimore Catechism!

I thank dVerse along with other experts as Tanks Tuesday with Colleen for introducing several forms of poetry to me, now; in my advanced senior years. Not sure if she will approve an entire parade of Haiku’s or are they Senryu forms? Whatever! But as I said, inspired by the Baltimore Catechism … here is my parade.

Ta Da ♫
Haiku number 1

Created by God
Purpose to Know, Love, and Serve
Eternity Waits

Haiku number 2

Trinity One God
Creation — Angels their fall
Sin entered the world

Haiku number 3 
***

Willfully crime against Him

Jesus born — dies to save us

Virtues Gifts ours to receive

All you have to do is ask
Think Pascal's wager

America the Eagle

dVerse

“And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” (Apocalypse 12:14) This prophecy fits the Church, which brings forth Christ into the world. The age we are living in today is again as predicted in — II Thessalonians 2:3 as the great falling away. Since the mid 60’s the Catholic Church has been dumbed down. The Vatican at present has an Anti-Christ . Yet, the Church is flourishing in small pockets worldwide, but especially here in America, the Eagle!
America like Christ appears dead, will rise again!
To continue to nourish the Church while waiting His Second Coming.

After many years of seeking, praying and searching I finally found my way home in the Traditional Catholic Church, the difference is night and day.

U.S. the Eagle
Eagles strongest birds of prey
America tough
