In The Vailed Kingdom.

It's still March, but not for long, because time is fast now that I'm 41! Before long it will be April, and I haven't done my taxes yet.  I would rather not deal, but that is life.

This life is complicated. I wonder, does sin make it that way, or did sin make our minds unable to deal with the complexities that life is? I think that it's the second one, at least I hope.  It's fun to imagine that this life and all it's complex parts are still to be seen and experienced.

I like to hope that after this body/seed is planted, and when it grows into the new body, the eternal body, there will be many adventures to be had in the new world where there is no sin.  I know we are already even now in His kingdom, but now it is the most difficult world to see, it's dim.  I think the kingdom that is here, for me, and for those of us who have not yet died yet is shrouded and or vailed, by sin.

It is snowing today, it has only snowed two other times this winter.  I miss the snow.  I doubt that it will stay for long, but it's nice to see it falling. It's one of those mysterious, not actual snow itself, that is scientifically understood, what I mean by mystery is this whole beauty to be found in the harshness that is snow, It is cold!

Right now, we who have not gone to sleep, live in harsh beauty, in a place of waiting and pain, if we know Jesus Christ we are the living among the dead.  As I'v heard so many times, the now and not yet! We long to have the vail, the shroud, completely lifted, to see our God and be with Him completely and to be with each other completely as well!

Singleness Awareness day!

In the monkeys flying report today it’s February 15th , the day after Valentine’s Day, also known as singleness Awareness day. I have always been a fan of Valentine’s Day ever sense I was a little punk. I have always known it as the day that my awesome crazy mom would leave heart shaped candies and baked treats around the house to let us know how much she loved us. On that day she would also make us a valentine’s breakfast. It was always a yummy day. My mom will always be my favorite valentine. When every other single person is having a depressing day remembering that they are, “alone and unhappy,” I am most of the time content and glad to spend the 14th of February celebrating the fact that singleness is good and I’m loving it. As I write this, I am of course aware of the fact that, though I’m so great with just me, there is and always will be in me, a desire to share my life with a husband. I would like to be a wife and mother very much. And so, until that time, I will, wit…

“ Be Still and Know that He is God”

Today’s news Voices In My Head.
Ok I’m not crazy here, but there are very three distinct voices in my mind/head on a regular basis.  Our world especially this scientific culture that I live in would say there is something wrong with my brain.  I have heard these voices very distinct voices as far back in my life as 2 years old.  My voice, God’s voice, and the one that lies, the one that says I don’t measure up.  The one that says I need this that or the other to be happy or fulfilled.  
I haven’t always understood the distinction between the voices, the reason for that is sometimes the voices sound like four at once or fifty voices blaring in my head at the top of their lungs screaming for my attenchen the loud ones are usually the lies it is in those times that it becomes very hard to distinguish the three voices.  My voice gets confused.  
Here is the thing though, and I am not writing this from a I know it all perspective, because I don’t! I am also not writing this saying that this is…

Being in stillness

Sometimes, I think there is something in me that needs to just be in the moment.  I think, that I am regularly the type of person that tends to think of the future, or of other places, or of times in the past, I wonder about life, and God very often, about what he is doing, or what he has done, and I think I long for what he is yet to do.  So I spend a whole lot of time in thoughts.

There are times during the week where I find myself just being still in the moment.  In those moments, I can only take in the things I can sense.  Things that I can touch and feel, smell, hear and see. It's good to be still in those moments, it's good to just practice being there because, if I don't, then more of the time I tend to be filled with anxiety.

The stillness becomes a way to recharge and renew.  To be aware of the ever present presents of the Holy Spirit.
