Decisions, decisions if you truly can’t decide, why not stop and pray to the only One True God. Try it, you might be surprised.
Who is the One True God? Who showed us how to carry our cross, who lived a life of humility. Who but God could rise from the dead, and no one, not even the Jews in His day denied it. Humility; fighting for Truth.
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.
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.
This month we will be looking for Gold. Gold is the colour of wealth, of power, of gods. Gold-leaf applied to paintings, gold crowns and coins. But look also for golds in the natural world, a fish, a sunset or sunrise, flowers and autumn leaves or sunlight on water. Or capture the light in the ‘golden hour’.
One of my favorite Holy Card pictures that depict Christ hidden in the Blessed Sacrament where the Mass of all times is offered.
A Short story you may have heard a similar version in the past!
Fantango gives us a tease of words to use, this week I placed it into my FSS below in bold letters.
My story begins –
Excitedly Arron and Evie were anxious to explore their new property, remembering the warning words of their father. "Whatever, don't go near the well; the brick masons are coming tomorrow to fix those loose bricks surrounding Gracie our well. Gracie blesses us with saving water, but as you can see, it is easy to fall into the well until those bricks are set."
Hmmm! Evie thought! She was daring alright and got a little too close while Arron tried to pull her away! The worse did happen! They both tripped and fell into the deep well. Down, down with the speed of lightning!
It seemed like hands were reaching out to them as they moved faster but never hitting bottom; they zoomed down lower and lower. Then suddenly, they felt on their backside something firm as if they were now riding not down but up! Higher and higher was their awareness.
Shooting up and right out of a rabbit hole. The children knew it was a rabbit's hole because of all the rabbit skins hanging all around them.
Arron said, "I heard of falling through the rabbit hole but never rising up and out from one." He laughed!
"Brrr! It's cold here wherever we are. I am freezing." Said, Evie
"Here, let's wrap up in one of these rabbit skins," said Arron, and so they did clothe themselves.
"What happened to us?"
"We fell from Grace!" Said Arron, "I don't think you sufficiently appreciated Our Father's warning."
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!
What worries you the most about the future? Why is that your biggest concern? Or are you not that concerned about the future?
This post might not make sense unless raised as Traditional Catholic. I hesitate to post it, but as you see, I did! Post it!
What concerns me is the world is ripe for the chastisement of the world!
Christians who are honest will have to admit that when Jesus said, “Upon this rock, I will build My Church.” Words that resulted at the beginning of the Catholic Faith, a Faith misunderstood for centuries. It is foretold that this Faith will adapt to the world ( 2nd Epistle of St Paul to the Thessalonians; ) and become small. “My Kingdom is not of this world.” His Kingdom is His Divine Supernatural Faith. (Luke 18;8. )
Catholic prophecy warns us before His Second Coming; God will allow a chastisement because today, what looks like His Faith BUT IS NOT; had adapted to the world!
Therefore, my only concern is for those who do not believe. My concern the Catholic prophecy! IS Coming Soon, I fear!
This week because it’s the beginning of a new month!
Colleen Chesebro says, “This challenge is NOW a true poet’s choice! Use any poetry form that you’d like including free-style or prose poetry. If your form is something new, teach us how to write it. Have fun!“
She suggested several forms, take a look here, CLICK!
I wanted to try as she suggested FOUND POETRY with there being several different methods, I choose the BLACK OUT! Using the Lord’s Prayer also know as The Our Father.
A blackout poem begins with an existing text, usually a newspaper. Using a heavy black marker, the writer blots out most of the page. The remaining words are not moved or rearranged. Fixed in place, they float in a sea of darkness. The contrast of black and white stirs thoughts of censorship and secrecy. What’s hiding behind the headlines of our daily paper? What does the highlighted text reveal about politics and world events?
The idea of redacting words to create a new work goes back centuries, but the process became trendy when writer and artist Austin Kleon posted newspaper blackout poems online and then published his book and companion blog, Newspaper Blackout.
Evocative and dramatic, blackout poems retain the original typography and word placement. Some artists add graphic designs, while others let the stark words stand on their own.
The theme of today EXCITEMENT its at AlwaysWright.
My little story may not be appreciated but still it is my story just the same!
After really thinking of all the events in my life, of which many were quite exciting. The one that, even today, gives me excitement the average person might not relate to is the day I found the Traditional Latin Mass. After being led into through Vatican II, a man-centered service and not knowing where to turn, except to pray! Praying I did, finally after a long time, several years, in fact! Quite miraculously, I found Traditional Catholic Latin Chapel, the feeling was I was lost, but now I came home! It was and IS VERY EXCITING.
“Nun. Thy prophets have seen false and foolish things for thee: and they have not laid open thy iniquity, to excite thee to penance: but they have seen for thee false revelations and banishments.” [Lamentations 2:14]
Francis has dropped a bombshell on the traditional Catholic community with his latest declaration in “Traditionis Custodes” severely restricting the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass (also known as the “extraordinary form”)
That news too is exciting to me, because we may be seeing the Second Coming of Christ soon, NOTICE I said MAY BE, what do I know! Not much but hoping!
