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!

A VALENTINE FOR YOU

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

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!!!

HA HA HALLELUIA

ROSES WILL BLOOM AGAIN! ~ BY FAITH & GRACE I AM SURE!

YOU CAN BE A MIRACLE

17 seconds could change your attitude FOR LIFE:

WHEN YOUR LIFE DOES NOT MAKE SENSE
AND YOUR PRAYERS ARE NOT ANSWERED
RIGHT AWAY OR IN THE WAY YOU THOUGHT

KEEP ASKING & PRAYING AND….

EXPECT MIRACLES !
IN UNIQUE PACKAGES….

KEEP DOING THE NEXT RIGHT THING

ESPECIALLY LOVING YOURSELF & EVERYONE

RIGHT WHERE WE & THEY
ARE
LIKE JESUS & HIS FATHER DOES!

AND KEEP FORGIVING & TRUSTING IN THE PAIN….

BE REAL & CRY OUT TO GOD
GOD WILL ANSWER….AND SEND THE HOLY SPIRIT
IN MANY FORMS  ( a song, a flower, a smile, a story…

those coincidences ~PROVIDENCES ~ that MOST take for granted are gifts from GOD)

TO

COMFORT AND TEACH US TRUTH
…..sometimes in EXTREME places & even out of

broken lives & broken hearts…

Start noticing the little “miracles” in your day & thank GOD & those

who bring the message ~ the “love note” from GOD’S heart of LOVE!

GOD IS FAITHFUL
GOD IS LOVE

and WANTS TO SHARE ABUNDANT LIFE &

AMAZING GRACE WITH YOU

Revelation 21 & 22 NOW! CHOOSE JOY & LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST CROSS OF LOVE!

DO YOU KNOW THAT KIND OF LOVE YET?
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 !

Stand for TRUTH with GRACE

How can I keep silent when children are dying all around and lies are being sung in the churches and ruthless greetings on the street!

Hello ~ how are you ( do you REALLY care???)

I DO ~ I SHOW IT …Some months I am penny~less “widow & orphan”  with no place welcome to lay my head…and yet I still carry food to share and a kind word…do you???

I have gone many months with NO regular income but what GOD has provided through the strangers I have helped and stayed with and sometimes family of God ~

real family~helps real family without controlling or being controlled.

I have not been supported regularly for years by any church or organization…it is just me and my “strange group of aliens & friends of sinners”…the grace of GOD & the kindness of strangers…GOD always PROVIDES!…not always what I want but ALL THAT I NEED and in abundance to share…I have never had to beg for bread. Some of the beggars that I share my food with have become my best friends …some have given me the “shoes off their feet when i needed a pair”  GOD IS MY LIFE SUPPPORT… my CARE GIVER…HE HAS ALWAYS been faithful because I ask CREATOR FIRST !!!! The beggars almost always give me a smile and a hug back…I AM SO RICH IN FRIENDS & JOY!!! the “things” that matter most!

 

What IF you ONLY have a smile or a hug or a listening ear  to share …? IS THAT enough ?

YES~ i am told DAILY ~~~ “you made my day!”~

“you changed my life when I met you…”

“I will NEVER forget your kindness”

” you have changed my life forever”

“you look like Jesus to me!”

” Who are you? ….how can I thank you?”

 

How WONDER~ ful is that? To make a DIFFERENCE EVERY DAY….bringing smiles and good cheer and peace wherever my feet step…sometimes just with a look.

FOR JESUS IS MY BEST & TRUEST FRIEND since a horrible car accident when I was only 5 years old….IN MY EXTREME grief of losing all that I once held dear here on earth many times in my life and losing my life several times~~~ I embraced GOD’S Cross of LOVE AND found the heart of GOD!

GOD’S heart of COMPASSION….for the least of these ( me!)…the servants…the mothers…the crippled and hideous looking ones…the ones that most ignore…the spanish speaking gardener…the tatoo covered skateboarder…the drunk…the glutton ( even in the church!)… the murderer…the rapist…the smelly homeless traveler….kicked and cursed at by the bullies ….sometimes in a uniform…a public servant? ….we should all be compassionate public & private servants to ALL!!! ….knowing when to put up boundaries!

WHO DO YOU SERVE?….let me see where you spend your money & time. That will tell me who your GOD is and who you love most..do you really care?

ARE YOU RUTH~ less? or do you even know what LOVE IS? Unconditional love…

wanting the BEST for others without controlling or being controlled!
LOVE DOES something…LOVE IS PATIENT….it reaches out to the one that is needy on the way to your party or your “church ministry” ….or your football game…. WHO IS YOUR GOD?

MY GOD IS LOVE….JOY….PEACE….PATIENT… I live in the  KIND KINGDOM of that love daily…whether sleeping in my car or camping with the homeless or in the millionaire homes who often love their home more than the people in it so that in the end all they have left is an empty mansion!

I WILL SPEAK UP for those who can not speak up~ I CAN NOT BE SILENT ANYMORE…

people are dying ….neighbors that need a touch of grace!

I STAND FOR TRUTH ~ I COULD NEVER BE RUTH~ LESS
WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR?

leave me a comment or leave someone an apple….or at least smile at the next stranger…

in the mirror….and across the street

It could be Jesus or RUTH or YOU!!!!…..
