My coined phrase Generational Negatives??? here in after referred to as (GN).
The Book of St. John chapter 5 Take Up Your Bed and Walk..
St. John, known by many as the Beloved Apostle of Jesus Christ records the account of Jesus visiting Jerusalem and stopping by a pool called Bethesda. There were many sick people lying around, blind, crippled and paralyzed and Jesus took notice of one particular man that had been lying around on a bed for thirty-eight years.
Jesus asked the man, do you want to get well? The man replied ???I don’t have anyone to put me in the pool and when I try to get there someone always gets in before I make it there.
Jesus said, Get up, take your bed and start walking. The man was healed on the spot.
This story could open our minds to cause us to re-think some situations in our own lives where we think things could or would or should be different Continue reading “GENERATIONAL NEGATIVES -PASSIVITY-Part I”
A View from the Mountaintop called Truth
Photo taken by Sara while visiting Scotland
When you have the idea or a passion to view and then “tell the truth” always remember that truth is from the view you have of it and you only have a partial view and that view may not have been or be the best view for total truth.
The Word of God written by the Apostle Paul (I Corinthians 13:12 Ampli.) says, we are looking in a mirror that only gives a dim (blurred) reflection (of reality as in a riddle or enigma) but then (when perfection comes) we shall see in reality and face to face.
I try to remind myself to be humble and remember there will be different interpretations of truth as we have all heard just a little different or seen just a little different or may have been taught a little different view.
We may not have the whole of the issue whethContinue reading “A Reflection from the Mountaintop called Truth”
Measure of a Lie measures a man or woman!
How does one measure a Lie?
God Hates Lies! Proverbs 6:16 records this fact for us.
The Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos reveals in Revelation 21:27 the outcome of falsehood. Also in Revelation 22:14,15 John gives a contrast between a lie and truth.
As I ponder and meditate the measure of A Lie, I ask some questions of myself and of others.
How generous are we with our lies when giving them to others?
Do we lie to Ourselves? To our Mother and Father? To our Children? To a Husband or Wife? To other Family members? To Friends? To our Co-workers or Employers?
Do we balance our lies while speaking with others while wanting a lie from them for ourselves? Ephesians 4:25 prohibit us from speaking a lie to others.
Just how does one measure a Lie?
Truth makes one free, so it would stand to reason a lie would makContinue reading “Measure of a Lie measures a man or woman”

WOW! I made it to the “Beach Wedding”! Kitty Hawk NC Friday Night
5PM. Just about High Tide! I think my picture will speak for me. O
Sunset, where art thou?
I didn’t have the heart to show the Bride and Groom but they did
great. After all-it it was their day.
The Methodist Minister was great too, I think, I couldn’t hear a
word he had to say except he had a famous quote that was his very
favorite and then the wind blew it away.
The family, friends and food were impressively splendid.
The house was lovely and full of Tommy Bahama’ s decor. The pool
was inviting but off limits to wedding guest who were all wet from
high tide. But some dived to their chagrin and the groom’s buddies
took all the blame!
Have you ever been in High Tide in Kitty Hawk in the rain and winds
in October? If not, why not? Just give it a whirl and the windContinue reading “BEACH WEDDING-surfs up”
вЂњStiffed Starched Shirts Hanging on a ClotheslineвЂќ
As I traveled South today with my laptop and looking out my windows upon cotton fields and clotheslines among the decorations of October Pumpkins and the beginnings of Fall Wonders, I see clothes, laundry, personal items hanging outside of oneвЂ™s home on their clothesline.
My friend of the South and her family hanging out on a clothesline being peeved for the local folks to see.
Have you ever had a peeved friend but you donвЂ™t know why and they say they are not peeved? Their family and friends donвЂ™t know why and then you talk with others to ask why and try to find out why and they donвЂ™t know why.
Well then how do you know your friend is peeved? Why donвЂ™t you call and ask her?
How are you?
вЂњ IвЂ™M FINE! Just FINE!”
How is your husband?

My Friend, Age 99
Anna, Sister Grandma, as she is affectionately called by so many died Monday, at age 99!
Anna, had been around a sure long time to make her children, family and friends feel so awful special.
She was wise but now her wisdom knows no limits.
She gained knowledge as she thumbed through her Bible on each and everyday. But now her knowledge is seen with just the eye.
Her heart was passionately in love with all she knew but now her heart is given to all!
Her legs were swollen and swelling but now they are just the right size.
Her hearing had left her for quite awhile but now the friend of hearing has become her very best friend.
I could go on and on but as I speak with her daughter, my friend, we believe we could never cover the all.
The mind and heart will tell us on each given day just what we believe our good friend, AnnContinue reading “My friend, Age 99”
