WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING

“Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.” James3:13

To be wise is to have understanding 
Understanding help us have a good life.

To be wise is to have a good life.
A good life encourages deeds to be done.

To be wise is to accomplish deeds with meekness. Deeds done in meekness produce humbleness.

To be wise is to do all things with humility 
Humility focuses on others more than self.

Understanding, a good life, deeds done in meekness, and humility are developed when we spend time with the One who is the wisest of all, our risen Savior, Jesus Christ.

Nature always reminds me that if I remain in Christ, I’m a mighty mountain, a pool of fresh water, a plant with beauty blooming, and a child of God. Which reminds me of doing good deeds for my Lord. 

As long as I practices the truths above, I reflect a hint of the grandness of our mighty God and the power of our Savior.

As I step away from such a grand scene, I’m also reminded of my earthly size. For I must remain humble with the confidence of what I know to be true in Christ. 

For it is not me, but Christ in me who is mighty like a mountain. 

•He is the refreshing water who quenches thirsty souls. 
•He is the one who rebuilds beauty out of ashes. 
•He is the one who gives confidence to the lowly.
•He renews hearts, minds, and souls.

Once Jesus touches the heart, the human spirit can clearly sense His spirit. Wherever anyone goes, wherever ever anyone find themselves, when ever anyone falls away from Him, His Spirit will be there. 

The Lord will always give his hand to the fallen not only to correct but to restore the one who calls his name. He rescues out of his love, his mercy, and his grace.

It is then we can live a good life, do good deeds, remain humble and be wise with a personal understanding.

Lord help us to be wise with understanding. In Jesus holy name I ask. Amen.

Rekindled Love

REKINDLED LOVE

On a lonely beach
Dinner for two
Is what you chose

Heart pounding
Hands sweating
Mind unfocused

Speechless
Beside you
I stood

Arm in arm
You guided me
And whispered

Be with me
Stay with me
Live with me

Lighter than air
Softer than silk
Warmer than summer

You embraced
Me whole
With gentleness

You kissed
My lips
With tenderness

I reaccepted
A ring’s
Caressed

My heart
My soul
My life

Has been
It is and
Will be

Only for
My true love
You, my Husband

Roundness of the Sea

In mathematics the center is a point within any round object keeping the object circumference evenly space. As for the human, the heart it’s referred as the center of who we are, yet it’s on our right side, guarded by our chest.

As the center of a circle, our hearts keeps us well balance as it pumps life to every cell of our body, giving life.

Life also exist in the center of all creatures, even the ones at the bottom of the deep blue sea.

The Ocean, which has always given me a since of roundness, for water brings life, yet water drowns life, it reveals the circle of life in different species.

 

Anemones, which have unique shapes, beautiful neon-colors and rubbery, slippery texture captivate the imagination.

 

Sea life is an example of how once light shines on them, light returns from within each being revealing their unique color or colors and design.

20190510_125708.jpg A message is clear. Be aware where you stick around for one never knows what kind of light may shine out of us. Let’s hope, our natural illuminating radiance be the one to be seen by those we encounter in our lifetime.20190510_133137.jpg

In our effort, let’s be as well-rounded as we humanly can by being golden with our words and actions. Allow goodness to radiate beautiful colors from our a caring heart as the sea creatures have demonstrated for the world to see.

With your sways you sooth my soul to near you

With your roars you entice my heart to feel you

With your rolling waves you engulf me to be with you

With your gentle release you leave me wanting you more

Like A Painting The Sun Shines

When your soul desires to be alone at sunrise

One must layer like the colorful sky

But with clothes to survive Alaska’s freezing mornings

And carry hot coffee in a thermos container.

A Heavenly Illumination

20181216_153132.jpg
 
With the sun behind me and covered by snowing clouds, this photo caused me to ponder. where did this light come from? It reassured me of my belief of, I’m never alone.
 
And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from Heaven. 2 Thessalonians 1:7 NLT
 
Do you believe in what can’t be seen or explain? Are you expecting miracles today or in 2019? Will your heart belief when Jesus appears from Heaven to bless you with his Light and gift you with a miracle?

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE?
 
Low to the earth
and behind me
the unseen sun
traveled its course
 
Heavy snow clouds
released snowflakes
coating everything
in me with glee
 
Something pulled my soul
to the trees before me
Peace, joy swirled with my glee
setting me totally free.
 
At home, happy as I could be
I looked over my photos
In unbelief, I stared at
the illuminated sky.
 
A light had shined
before my very own eyes
which I had no clue
it had even existed

Heaven’s Morning Visit

In late November
Above the Cook inlet
Between mountain’s ranges
Heavenly light makes its entrance
Spreading Hope for all souls to see
