Away in a manger

Are you away from those you hold most dear ? Are there misunderstandings or even death or divorce that keep you apart from loved ones in time, space or distance? Or is this a hard season for you for any reason at all ? There is someone who cares. Someone born AWAY IN A MANGER but not far away today!

Writing my emotions thru letters, prayers, poems & songs has comforted me since I was a child and I am often surprised at how much comfort my words bring to others~ similar to how a song can bring comfort to a child when a mother sings or just humms. Let’s write & sing & humm with & to ourselves and others to bring more comfort to the world starting with just a smile & a KIND WORD ~right in the mirror !

🎶 AWAY IN A MANGER ~ no crib for a bed ~ the little LORD JESUS laid down HIS sweet head ~~~~~The stars in the sky looked down where He lay ~ the little LORD JESUS asleep on the hay…🎶

Things certainly were not perfect ….they were less than ideal for THAT ROYAL birth ~ far & AWAY from home and no room in any inn but THERE WAS PEACE in that humble ground because the HOLY SPIRIT WAS PRESENT.

Amazingly PRESENTS started arriving . Worshipers celebrating the birth of the MOST HIGH came from all over because they knew the truth & wanted to SEE IT & get CLOSER . Angels started the chorus and the shepherds ( drummer boys ? 🥁) & even wise men later brought their most valuable gift each from the heart and with so much JOY . To some of us the BEST GIFT WOULD be:

✨TIME or a

✨TOUCH ( like a good hug !)

✨WORDS of affirmation like in a letter or a song ….

✨Acts of SERVICE

✨GIFTS!


HOW DO YOU GIVE & RECEIVE LOVE ? When we know ourselves & seek to understand others we can better give & receive love. There is always so much to learn because we do change & grow and need to ASK …ourselves & others.

So TODAY as I miss many I love ~ far far away in some cases. There is no distance in my heart…..Perhaps it is YOU I am thinking of so dearly right now ! I DO KNOW GOD IS THINKING OF YOU and believe that is why you are reading this. We are messengers . I hope to be a messenger and a GIFT of love to you & all I meet & know ! So I pray & write & sing & will ask you to wrap your arms around yourself & RECEIVE THIS HUG I AM SENDING & then HUMM along with me your favorite tune of the season or one of mine !

I write for ALL those I love & miss and all who read this sometimes purely by the hand of providence.
I ALSO PRAY this gives encouragement and hope just where you need it most. May this be an answer to both of us. It is is my gift to you today from my heart.

I CARE & that is why I SHARE! I write this today for love and out of my broken heart that Heaven keeps healing and holding together by amazing grace cords of love.

I forgive those who have misunderstood and hurt me because that is the habit my dear daddy modeled and taught me from a child. May we learn to forgive like Jesus did even on our crosses of sufferings and even for our enemies as was JESUS WAY. I know no other way. It is the way of peace and healing and have seen many suffer because they would not forgive or reach out & try to love again. Forgiveness is a gift I give myself as much as for the other person who may or may not know how much their words or actions ( or lack of words or actions or contact ) have grieved me. I ask their forgiveness as well for anything I might have done to cause harm. I never want to hurt anyone I pray we will all get the gift of forgiveness that is one of the BEST GIFTS OF ALL!

My dear daddy was very wise and like a grand~father & mentor to me. He was nearly 50 when I was born. I was his only daughter and he affectionately & humorously introduced me as ” My favorite & Hebrew Daughter along with His Hebrew Son” because he choose our names from the Bible. The Hebrew meaning of my name is compassionate, friend …. Names are important and can teach us much about ourselves & our destiny~ I recommend looking your name’s meaning up and/or pray about the meaning of your name to discover more about yourself. Our name is a key to our destiny and can especially help us when we are AWAY from who we love and things that are comfortable & familiar or need to start a new chapter of our lives.

How wonderful to be SO beloved by both my far from perfect parents but sadly there was a lot of disease and financial stress in my home after a horrible car accident when I was very little. Our car had plunged over the freeway’s edge at 50 mph and it rolled several times before it stopped and my mom was thrown many yards away . When she came to she thought we were all dead just before she passed out again after trying to get up. It seems we all passed out unconscious until a miraculous intervention saved us. My mom & I would most likely have bled to death if someone had not pulled over to help since this was way before cell phones . God made A WAY ! ( ask me about the REST OF THE STORY sometime…I do edit a lot out of stories to save YOU time !) Believe it or not !

There were dangerous medications causing nightmares along with concussion symptoms & other health challenges….some lasting for decades that are all part of what makes me unique. BUT GOD CAN MAKE A WAY & send healing even TODAY for us all ! OFTEN WITH PRAYER !

So much good did come from the tragedy but it takes EYES of GRACE to see and sometimes that includes time & experience. I am so grateful for how it shaped who I am and the many choices because of that abrupt turning point in my life. Painful at the time but I learned & grew so much in ways that were important. God was making A WAY for me even then.

Instead of being shy and afraid I had to learn to be brave. I wanted to be there for others who were in pain because of the hospital trauma where I felt lied to and/or abandoned by everyone including the nurses as I the painful needle pulled me back together and I counted each stitch. I just wanted to know how many and when the nurse across the room said just a couple more …I had believed her but nightmare did not end for a long time. I realized at a young age there is no one who understands or cares and can be with us all the time like Jesus can. Jesus said I AM THE WAY John 14:6

You see, just months before the car accident I had asked Jesus to become my best friend by inviting him into my heart through a simple prayer on my daddy’s lap after church one night when the sermon scared me about the reality of a hell. I wanted to go to heaven not hell like the Preacher had talked about.

How GLAD I AM THAT I GOT THE HELL SCARED OUT OF ME at 4 !!! HALLELUJAH !!

I HOPE TO SCARE IT OUT OF YOU TOO!!! SO you can sing HA HA HALLELUJAH with me too and chase away the fear & anger & pain of this world ! There is no other comfort like the WORDS of Jesus to my heart & soul. Do you know & trust Jesus ? Do you want to know God’s LOVE ? Just say a simple prayer like a child and God will send answers when you ASK ! GOD WILL MAKE A WAY for YOU!

Even at that small age after the car accident I wanted to SPEAK UP for those who had no voice or were too weak or just felt alone.

Well~ we can ONLY choose our response & take our emotions and recreate something good out of what seems like a mistake or a tragedy. May we choose to keep learning & growing and share humor & love wherever we are , like my dear daddy did for 80 wonderful years. I have missed my parents and first son since they all died in the 1990’s. I REMEMBER them each fondly and because I write & talk about them along with others who have died like another son last year ~ it seems to help them seem near and chase away the tears that still flow and pain that grief will bring like unexpected waves at times. Feeling the pain but not getting pulled under & stuck in it is healing. We must feel our emotions and then do something constructive with them ~ like move & create & reach out to help others.

This helps bring healing and even heaven to earth ~ one action at a time. I get thanked daily for some of the simplest acts of kindness that any one can do. A cup of kindness I call it ….It could be a cup or bottle of water or an apple for a homeless person ~ EVERYONE needs a smile & a kind greeting especially in times like these. REACH OUT ~ SMILE & GREET ALL YOU MEET . You will find that the nobleness & love you give away WILL return to you some day when you most need it also ! Not where you think ~ God shows up in mysterious ways and the Bible tells a lot of those mysterious stories to show us HIS WAY!

The most famous stories of all time are full of separation & difficulties and often start in humble & what seems to be unlikely beginning places.

One phrase and most of the world knows the same story we are talking about from the MOST FAMOUS STORY OF ALL TIME ” AWAY IN A MANGER” or “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem” or so many many more about that Oh HOLY NIGHT when there was a SPECIAL STAR shining SO bright in the darkest of times !

In pondering this during my prayer time first thing this morning a poem starting coming to me. For decades I have written my prayers & poems in journals before or after my habit of daily Bible reading.

Here are 2 of my new verses (part of a longer poem ) to AWAY in a Manger that I wrote this morning:

🎶The Story of JESUS a child can RECEIVE ~ but grown~ups forget or are often deceived

🎶We must be like children to SEE the PURE THINGS

🎶Like Jesus the sacrifice LAMB & TRUE (LION) KING!

🎶NOW what can we do to show JESUS we care ? ~

🎶Let’s give Him our HEART & show love everywhere~

🎶For that is the message from that HOLY NIGHT ~

🎶TO SHINE FORTH THE KINGDOM OF PUREST D*LIGHT ~~~ grace’t*ruth

May this & every season remind us of the reason we are still here & why the

King of glory arrived AWAY IN A MANGER & WANTS TO BRING COMFORT & JOY TO EVERY PLACE !

GOOD CHEER TO YOU & YOURS AS YOU CELEBRATE YOUR DAYS & HOLY NIGHT(s)

MAY THEY ALL BE WITH & IN D*LIGHT

Lovingly

with grace & truth

your friend ~ even to the end …..which is really just a new beginning

PS AND ….If you are grieving the loss of someone or REMEMBERING my dear Son Joshua as I am perhaps this touching song will help you cry out a few more healthy & healing tears like it did for me when I heard it ! May GOD’S LOVE RAISE YOU UP over the ashes of life to SEE THE MANGERS & THE CROSSES of life , that can seem like a bloody mess actually turn into the places that lift us up to SEE LIFE ETERNAL FULL OF HOPE & JOY & ABUNDANCE EVEN :

Blessed are those who MOURN (express their grief) BE COMFORTED BY JESUS~ Matthew 5:4

34 Then the King will say to those at His right hand, Come, you blessed of My Father [you [a]favored of God and appointed to eternal salvation], inherit (receive as your own) the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
35 For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you [b]brought Me together with yourselves and welcomed and entertained and [c]lodged Me,
36 I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me [d]with help and ministering care, I was in prison and you came to see Me.
37 Then the just and upright will answer Him, Lord, when did we see You hungry and gave You food, or thirsty and gave You something to drink?
38 And when did we see You a stranger and welcomed and entertained You, or naked and clothed You?
39 And when did we see You sick or in prison and came to visit You?
40 And the King will reply to them, Truly I tell you, in so far as you did it for one of the least [[e]in the estimation of men] of these My brethren, you did it for Me…..the WORD OF JESUS FROM THE BOOK OF MATTHEW CHAPTER 25

SPEAK LOVE & UNITE ~ #Justiceforall

BE THE JUSTICE & MERCY WITH A HOLY KISS !

cropped-Eleonoras-June-visit-misc-2010-230-copy.jpeg

Let us pray for UNITY and let us pray FOR ALL our leaders. ( keep breathing deeply & praying deeply…especially during elections…and LAUGH A LOT in between comforting those in distress!) If we do not SPEAK LIFE & LOVE our energy will be negative & contagious or we could even “catch the negative & hating VIRUS”!

hint: laughing makes us breath deeply & is a GREAT STRESS RELIEVER & HEALTH REMEDY! Proverbs 17:22

Our answers are not, nor have ever been, in politics or any organization.

Our ONLY answer is in LIVING UNDER GOD and LIVING WITH our “Neighbors & self”  in a LOVING & respectful WAY!

( Jesus, in Matthew 22:39 ,is quoting Moses WORDS from Leviticus 19:18 which are the JUDEO~CHRISTIAN VALUES this country was originally founded on. )

If we don’t forgive & make peace with all, starting with our own childhood injustices & pain, we are not ready to deal with the injustices & pain that are sure to come up in life. When our parents, siblings, schoolmates, teachers or just crisis in general, hurt & anger us and we do not resolve those early pains, we will be hurting people who will most likely hurt others.
“HURTING PEOPLE HURT PEOPLE!”

“LOVING PEOPLE LOVE PEOPLE…..!”
“AND FORGIVING PEOPLE ~ FORGIVE PEOPLE or Ask GOD TO HELP THEM FORGIVE ALL ”

“Father, Forgive them for they know not what they do!” Luke 23:34 Jesus words on the Cross for his murderers, gambling for his clothes. What a perfect example of how to deal with pain & injustice in the moment.

 

UNTIL WE FOLLOW THE “WAY & TRUTH & LIFE ” OF JESUS. John 14:6
THE PATH OF LOVE & HONORING THE FATHER GOD and HIS WAY
WE WILL NOT HAVE PEACE NOW OR ULTIMATELY.

WE CAN LIVE IN PEACE IF WE TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ATTITUDE

AND FOLLOW THE WAY OF PEACE~ JESUS WAY!

Matthew 5 LOVE YOUR ENEMIES!

 

JESUS LIVED & DIED IN PEACE and ROSE AGAIN & LIVES NOW IN THE LIVES OF THOSE
WHO EMBRACE HIS WAY & HIS SPIRIT.

JESUS IS THE ULTIMATE EXAMPLE OF THE FATHER’S HEART EVEN TAKING CARE OF HIS OWN DEAR MOTHER ON THE CROSS AS HE WAS DYING and SHOWED US HOW TO LIVE & DIE WELL.

TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT JESUS WORDS & LIFE AND THE WORDS THAT JESUS BASED HIS LIFE ON Genesis 1 Through Malachi 4:6.

JESUS IS THE WAY TO LIVE ~ JESUS LIVED A LIFE OF TRUTH ~
KNOWING JESUS IS ETERNAL LIFE. John 17:3.
JESUS, Y’SHUA IS THE ANSWER FOR AMERICA and EVERYONE IN THE WORLD!

Jesus is THE MESSAGE OF PEACE HOPE & LOVE  that conquers ALL & so our we to be !

THE LOVING HEART OF A JUST HEAVENLY FATHER & MERCIFUL MOTHER~ LIKE SPIRIT

by being a humble friend to all like JESUS WAS. Micah 6:8

IN THE END

REMEMBER LOVE CONQUERS ALL

LET’S HEAL WITH EACH OTHER NOW…AND MAKE OUR ENEMIES INTO FRIENDS
BY SEEKING TO UNDERSTAND WHY THEY DO WHAT THEY DO AND REMEMBER TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR FIRST!

THOSE WHO LOVE ARE THE TRUE WINNERS!

Do JUSTLY
LOVE MERCY
AND WALK HUMBLY is the ANSWER WE CAN CAN COUNT ON. ( Micah 6:8)

Turn your heart to the Heavenly Father who loves each one of his children

more than we can ever imagine. ( Malachi 4:6)

SHALOM & grace always!

JOY & PAIN of LOVING

BIRTH IS THE MOST THRILLING OF EARTHLY EXPERIENCES BUT IT IS OFTEN THE MOST

CHALLENGING AS WELL~especially the next 100 years or if the child dies before the mother!   IN other words LIFE IS a BEAUTIFUL MESS & BITTER~SWEET!!!…

 

…A MESTER~ PIECE ….orchestrated by the MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE WHO CAN MAKE
ALL THINGS TURN FOR GOOD IN TIME IF WE WILL ONLY TRUST & DO THE NEXT RIGHT THING!photo

THE SMILE on my face is the thrill of a water birth at home after hours of labor & laughter to bring forth our last son! My 12 year old daughter, ( still an amazing photographer!)took

this photo at the moment of my last of 10 births ( 8 are still living on this earth).

Anything worthwhile takes effort & even a certain amount of pain to learn to breath with & through to manage life well. I got very good at practicing breathing with my many births

( the last 5 at home !)

Life IS about taking DEEP BREATHS FOR LIFE!

It is the first & most important principle of good health~

all three aspects of good health: BODY ~ SOUL~ SPIRIT BREATHING!

AND DEEP BELLY LAUGHTER COVERS ALL THREE ASPECTS WHEN DONE PROPERLY!

TODAY my oldest son would have turned 26 ~ but sadly Luke Henry Clifford was sang into

Jesus arms & heavenly peace at the only 1 week old as his father & I wept and began the grieving process that only someone having lost a child can understand.

Doctors misdiagnosed  several times the “problem” pregnancy and ultimately GOD had different plans for our precious & beloved first born son.

ONLY GOD can give the peace that I experienced at those critical moments when the world

seemed to be falling apart .

GOD has carried me & guided me and I THANK GOD DAILY for the gifts I learned during

Luke’s short life AND death and though I miss him dearly, I am SO GRATEFUL for the GIFT OF
LIFE & DEATH because GOD IS NOT ONLY WITH ME BUT IN ME.

ASK GOD TO SHOW YOU THE WAY.

Jesus example of TRUSTING HIS FATHER & FORGIVING & LOVING ALL
IS THE WAY
IS THE TRUTH
IS THE LIFE

 

AND THIS IS THE LIFE
I WANT TO LIVE & DO PRACTICE DAILY TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY WITH GOD’S HELP
WON’T YOU JOIN ME?

FOLLOW JESUS John 17:3

IN FULLY EMBRACING THE JOY & PAIN OF LOVING EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE!

A VALENTINE FOR YOU

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAILY!

May all our days be full of contentment with JOY!

When things do not turn out as expected ~ CHOOSE JOY by being GRATEFUL and looking for ways to make the best of the situation instead of focusing what you did not get or do not have. BE THANKFUL~ count your blessings and SING! I thought I was going to see a special friend tonight but that did not work out so I had an opportunity to adjust my thinking in order to not be discouraged. I chose to be GRATEFUL & do something different ~ LIKE ENJOY THE DAY ANYWAY & WRITE YOU A VALENTINE!!!

 

Holidays can be a highlight or a dark “night,” so to speak,

depending on your attitude and perspective, especially if you live alone or do not have a significant other in your life. For years now I have been alone but because of my faith & close relationship with GOD the Father, I have never really felt “alone.”

I have learned to go where I am celebrated not where I am tolerated and had to really decide what my CORE VALUES are should I choose to get in another relationship.

Valentine’s Day is marketed everywhere for weeks & it can be inspiring or depressing. I have always enjoyed making each day special and it is fun when there is a theme especially one for sharing & showing your love. Instead of focusing just on romance how about focusing on the reminder just to show more love & express it those most significant in your life.

Be mindful of what input is doing to your mind & attitude.

The media would like to “sell us happiness” or make us long for something or someone

we do not have.

Expectations can be so damaging.

This week I had the gift of being alone for days at the ocean to write & create & catch up on just some needed reflection and re:creation alone with my creator. I had the opportunity to be in a cabin by the beach with no car & yet really wanted to get Valentine’s made for my children, grandchildren & the special friends I have in my life.

I got to be extra creative by seeing what I had with me & the few basic things in the cabin.

What fun I have been having and have been delighted by the many ways the CREATOR has been deLIGHTing me for Valentine’s week! The myriad of birds visiting daily and the spring flowers coming up early along with songs on the radio or verses from the Bible have me constantly GIVING THANKS while the sun has been playing pick-a-boo between sunrise & the most beautiful sunsets!

Psalm 100 says we should enter God’s courts with thanksgiving & praise and years ago I decided to purpose to stay in God’s court by practicing GRATITUDE ~ NO MATTER WHAT.

WHAT A WONDERFUL HABIT and SECRET it has been for me. I am able to choose JOY & PEACE that keep me very present and not miss the BLESSING of each moment & person.

SO ~ my BEST gift to YOU , dear heart,

is to share my “secrets of JOY” and say a prayer & sing it “over you” that you would choose to STOP and take a DEEP BREATH of GRATITUDE to YOUR CREATOR and send you

some of my extra JOY & PEACE that overflows from God’s THRONE OF GRACE!

lovingly,

with a song in my heart & on my lips

grace’t*Ruth

JOY to the WORLD ~ the LORD HAS COME !

Let earth Receive HER KING~

LET EVERY HEART ~  PREPARE A ROOM….and HEAVEN & NATURE WILL SING!

HEAVEN & NATURE DOES SING

AND SO DO I  ~ JOIN ME!!!

LEAVE ME A COMMENT & I WILL PRAY FOR YOU!

FOR GOD SO LOVED

THE WORLD

THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON ~ John 3:16-17

TO PROVE IT ….

IF YOU BELIEVE IN THAT LOVE
YOUR LIFE WILL SHOW IT & PROVE IT TOO

THROUGH LOVING PEOPLE & using things

not LOVING THINGS AND USING PEOPLE!

BE GRATEFUL FOR THE LOVE AROUND YOU
& GIVE WHAT YOU CAN….

 

BE LIKE JESUS….LOVE & HELP the least of these or anyone who asks….

Your neighbor …THAT IS “the GOLDEN RULE”

NO LAW AGAINST GOD’S PURE LOVE

“LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF” …JESUS WAS QUOTING MOSES

Leviticus 19:18 by the WAY!!!

WHO WAS QUOTING GOD!

WHO DO YOU QUOTE & FOLLOW FIRST….?

WE ARE TO KNOWN AS “CHRISTIANS…or followers of CHRIST” BY OUR LOVE not hateful words & deeds…

I FOLLOW GOD & HIS SON learn from those who look like GOD’S  children in the kind of LOVING KINGDOM I WANT TO LIVE IN!

JOYFUL PEACEFUL & DOING THE RIGHT THING !

SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE
CONNECTING & FORGIVING AND LOVING ALL THE WAY!!!!

OFTEN SAYING THE LOVING THINGS THAT NEEDS TO BE SAID TO SET FREE CAPTIVES TO FEAR (LIES!)
