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

TIME TO WEEP & MOURN ~ YET WITH HOPE !

I AM weeping with & for the families of the dead & dying & suffering around the world tonight …especially for those who have no HOPE IN ETERNAL LIFE and for the loss of children.

 

Our hearts should weep & bleed with tears especially when innocent lives of children die before & after birth. The families & loved ones will miss them always. They need support & heaven’s help & LOTS OF TLC for a long time. The first year is VERY RAW !

 

….having buried 3 of my own children, one just last year & 2 others decades ago along with many other close loved ones including parents & others who felt like family … I WEEP WITH THOSE WHO WEEP …

yet I also have faith that there is RESURRECTION HOPE FOR THOSE WHO WILL TRUST … ..BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO MOURN FOR THEY SHALL BE COMFORTED . Matthew 5

 

LET’S KEEP PRAYING FOR BLEEDING HEARTS TODAY & THIS WEEK & whenever the Spirit reminds us to …

IS YOURS ONE OF THEM LIKE MINE WHO OFTEN OR EVEN NOW WEEPS ALONE? YET I AM NOT ALONE , I HAVE THE COMFORT OF MY DEAREST HEAVENLY FATHER …MORE INTIMATE TO ME THAN ANYONE HERE ON EARTH …ESPECIALLY NOW …. with angels seen & unseen daily !

 

MAY YOU FIND THE HEALING & COMFORT THAT ONLY HEAVEN CAN BRING THROUGH PRAYER AND TAKING TIME TO MOURN ( Matthew 5:4 ) A daily walk …a daily habit of grace.

DO you know….I MEAN REALLY KNOW GOD’S GRACE & PEACE or is Jesus just a story or fable to you? …do you read the love letter & instruction guide for life daily as I do?

 

Without TRUTH the world is grim.

What a good good Father & Shepherd we have who gives us ALL we need if we only ask in prayer & seek HIS WISDOM FROM THE WORD OF TRUTH & LIFE !!! …. Perhaps that is why you are here ..you were praying for truth & light …OR someone was praying for you . Actually the Bible teaches that GOD IS ALWAYS THINKING OF YOU …Psalm 139 …more than the sand on the seashores are His thoughts #foryou!!! WOW …that’s a LOT OF THOTS !!

 

PEOPLE PERISH WITH NO HOPE BECAUSE OF LACK OF KNOWLEDGE & ESPECIALLY FOR LACK OF WISDOM !! GET TO KNOW GOD BY READING HIS WORD DAILY AND LISTENING IN YOUR HEART TO THE VOICE OF TRUTH THROUGH HIS HOLY SPIRIT IS THE KEY . GO FOR A WALK DAILY …barefoot if possible in the grass or the woods as often as possible …and LISTEN ! BE WELL ….

JESUS OFTEN ASKED FIRST …DO YOU WANT TO BE WELL ? …WE GET TO CHOOSE! …

ASK SEEK & KNOCK ON HEAVEN’S DOOR FIRST … then confirmation will come as we learn to discern. THE VOICE OF TRUTH WILL MATCH TO THE WORD OF GOD…. Not a religion …a RELATIONSHIP … MORE REAL & COMFORTING THAN I CAN EXPLAIN …. !!
GET WISDOM …READ PROVERBS & PSALMS DAILY ALONG WITH GOING THRU THE WHOLE WORD OF GOD FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION …THE ONLY NEWS WE CAN COUNT ON & TRUST …A NEVER~ENDING STORY OF GRACE ….

 

GRACE & TRUTH FOR YOU & ME & ALL WHO WILL BELIEVE & TAKE ACTION ….FAITH IS AN ACTION WORD …JUST LIKE LOVE …

LOVE DOES SOMETHING… !


LOVE IS….

…. WAY MORE THAN WORDS

 

Love costs something …time & something of value from a heart of love …it did cost GOD EVERYTHING JOHN 3: 16 THE PRECIOUS SON OF GOD WHO DIED FOR YOU gave LIFE TO PROVE LOVE TO YOU AND NOW LIVES & PRAYS FOR YOU AT THE RIGHT HAND OF HIS FATHER !!!! Colossians 3

 

IN THE END LOVE WILL WIN & CONQUER ALL AND ACTUALLY ALREADY HAS ! REVELATION 5:5

IF YOU BELIEVE & CONFESS THIS WITH YOUR HEART & SHOW IT BY HOW YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE …NOT TO EARN IT BUT AS A THANK YOU FOR THIS GIFT OF GRACE …THEN YOU CAN DANCE WITH ME EVEN NOW OVER THE ASHES & GRAVES OF THIS WORLD THRU THE TEARS ! …BECAUSE
FOR THOSE WHO LOVE …TIME IS ETERNITY … YES WEEP BUT DON’T STAY STUCK AT A GRAVE OR IN THE WORLD SYSTEM … LIVE ABOVE & RISE TO HELP OTHER’S RISE TOO !

LIVE IN LOVE PEACE & JOY …

EMMANUEL NOW & FOREVER ….

… MAY WE ALL GRIEVE WELL TO HEAL …BREATHE …& DO PLEASE HUG SOMEONE OR HUG YOURSELF NOW & OFTEN DAILY IF YOU LIVE ALONE LIKE SOME OF US SO … EACH OF US HIDES A STORY OF PAIN THAT NEEDS TLC !!! …SENDING A HUG & A PRAYER …REMEMBER THERE IS ONE WHO KNOWS & CARES 1 PETER 5:7 …. PSALM 23 EVEN IN THE VALLEYS & SHADOWS OF DEATH …THERE IS A PLACE OF PEACE WE CAN FIND REFUGE & COMFORT … ~

PRAYING & SPEAKING LIFE & JESUS OVER YOU ~ REVELATION 12:11

PHILIPPIANS 1:9-11

SHALOM & GRACE GRACE TO YOU

ROMANS 15:13 WITH JOY ….. TEARS LIKE RAIN BRING RAINBOWS …IF WE LOOK UP AND SEE GOD’S SMILING TEARS COMING DOWN TO SHOWER US WITH BLESSINGS THAT DO OFTEN COME THRU RAINDROPS …

HEAVENLY BLUES

HEAVENLY BLUES

Oh how I love those heavenly blues

Like the sky ~ his eyes so beautiful & true

From the first moment he was placed in my arms

There was a knowing look ~ a winsome charm

And a striving for JUSTICE & MERCY too

….That’s my boy’s heavenly blues

He loved nature & music the most

So many talents I surely can boast

Always reaching higher & searching the stars

His body & heart wore many battle scars

So he cheered himself & others with tunes

~~~Yes my boy’s sweet, uncanny heavenly blues

He loved gathering friends new & old

Lighting a fire where stories were told

Humor & music & games to be played

But he wasn’t one for masks or charades

He’d challenge all to be honest & real ~not fools

~~~So often with a song ~ahh those heavenly blues

His body was agile, swift & strong

He worked & played & wrote many a song

His craftsmanship was unique & clever

He noticed each detail even each feather

He did more in his years than most it’s true

~~~So CELEBRATE with me his heavenly blues

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The last few visits were the best in years

He was so tender & grateful as we shared hugs & tears

He played special songs while he held my hand

I’m so grateful GOD had that in the plan

For my last memory with him is in purple hues

~~~Sharing & singing BRITER heavenly blues

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He realized so much is lies from one ENEMY

For our loved ones are not the problem you SEE

Anger guilt & pain covered in shame

Makes us blind & casting blame

He was understanding the TRUE gospel anew

~~~And now he’s singing them in heavenly blues

Have you heard the story of Jesus so dear?

God’s son sent to save us & draw us near

Nearer & nearer to the way we should live

A peace within with JOY & quick to forgive

DO ASK NOW to receive this good good news

Then share with all the heavenly blues

       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There’s nothing in this world that compares

To presence of JESUS a constant best friend, who cares

His SPIRIT wants to comfort, guide & keep

Then we can safely live, trust & sleep

SO ASK JESUS TO MAKE YOUR HEART NEW
& SING GLORIOUSLY WITH ME FOREVER
~~~ETERNAL HEAVENLY BLUES …..

~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you GOD for sending us

Joshua ~ the one who lived in my womb

& Jesus the one on the cross & the tomb

The womb & the cross & the tomb are not places to stay

GOD WANTS US FREE TO LIVE at PEACE COME WHAT MAY

GET READY FOR SOON IS RESURRECTION DAY &
A NEW BIRTH & EARTH TO STAY ~~

There are links at the end to the very special songs

My son played for me during one of our last visits ( we had many hours long visits when I parked my RV home at his home that he had paid off. He said he was working on getting me a place of my own too &/or put a pad in behind his house) GOD had other plans for each of us & now he is FREE from this earth’s pain & struggle & we are left behind to carry on his legacy along with ours. He would say LAUGH MORE & BE HAPPY & that sounds like Jesus kind of living to me. ABUNDANT LIFE.

~ THESE songs meant a lot to us so do click the links below & pretend we are their

taking you to the heavenly BLUES TOO !

And a new one to me that is now my favorite & theme song for this past year since Joshua shared it with me:
When….the Man comes around Johnny Cash (2018 version)

Love from Granma Grace aka friend

Here is a song & show I loved as a child & had not heard for decades …Joshua always knew the right song to put on for me even as a teen when he sensed things were hard. We had a special bond especially when we looked up at the stars at night. I surely do & will always miss him & will love the ones I meet on the street for him …for he like me liked to cheer the neighbors & strangers AS IF THEY WERE JESUS IN DISGUISE . …WON’T YOU JOIN US?

JOSHUA’S LAST SONG WE SHARED & I ASK YOU TO CLOSE YOUR EYES & LISTEN AS IF YOU ARE LOOKING INTO HIS EYES WITH ME …THOSE HEAVENLY BLUES …

SHALOM & GRACE TO YOU !

DEAD SEE LIFE ~ mg12.com

Greetings of JOY & HEALTH TO each of us!

When we lose our health we lose our wealth trying to regain it and sometime it is too late!

I have been at many deathbeds and heard the regrets and stories.

Let’s not ignore the warning signals that the body tries to tell us. We can “grow” younger and replace the old cells with new & healthy ones when given the right nutrition & circulation and “UP WORDS” of truth.  Every three years all our cells have been replaced ~

the question is what are we replacing them with~ things that will rebuild healthy cells or destructive foods and attitudes? I CHOOSE LIFE and WHY NOT THE BEST !

PREVENTION IS THE ANSWER and we all need to share with each other what works for us!

Often we are just needing a DEEP BREATH or a CUP OF WATER or EVEN JUST A GOOD LAUGH AND A KIND WORD FROM SOMEONE!   ~~~~~CONNECTIONS!!!

THESE ARE THE BARE NECESSITIES that I love to talk about and I learn so much by being open to new ideas and smiles!

A sincere random act of kindness will bring “life ” to someones face. OFTEN it is SO miraculous to SEE the transformation on a face after just a little kindness or a genuine smile or hug!

There are also basic minerals that our body needs to survive and THE MASTER MINERAL MAGNESIUM IS KEY because it helps EVERYTHING else work . Kind of like LOVE & Kindness!

Without it we just CAN NOT THRIVE like we are meant to.

Sadly our farming practices ( and social skills ) have depleted the soils of our much needed minerals for our bodies to function optimally. I have known the importance of minerals and have focused on different foods to try to get the amount my body needs to avoid headaches and muscle cramps but until I found the mg12 company & products I had no idea how good I could feel and how EASY it could be to get it to my cells by just spraying it on ~even my nails are stronger than ever!

I like how the mg12 company does business and am SO HAPPY TO RECOMMEND and help promote all their wonderful products put together here in America but sourced from the very natural and healthy “dead sea ” in Israel.

Many European insurance companies send their patients to the dead sea to get the healing benefits of bathing in these healing minerals and now WE CAN JUST SPRAY OR RUB THEM ON ~ without getting on a airplane or leaving home. I carry the mini spray Magnesium with me because I have watched bruises disappear on myself and others giving instant relief and cut the healing time dramatically. I use these products daily as “food” for my cells and carry them for Emergencies.

SO DO visit the website or call 877.331.4252 and use the CODE “GRACE” for YOUR DISCOUNT each time you order. There is money back guarantee so ORDER TODAY~
YOUR BODY WILL THANK YOU TOMORROW!!

FULL OF THANKS

img_3305Writers like to play with words and when we study languages we learn even more about the depth & meaning of words and it enriches our lives.

When we are full of thanks and count our blessings we can not help but be joy ~full.

GRAPE~FULL to me means to be Full of GRATITUDE & JOY!

And wine in the Bible represents JOY just like the Holy Spirit. Since I do not drink alcohol except on very rare occasions ~ I find it fascinating to see the similarity in and out of the Bible about “being under the influence” of good and not so good things!

The Holy Spirit fills us with JOY even in circumstances that would normally be dreary or sad, similar to alcohol but with no “hang over”.

This Thanksgiving, I am most thankful for the time I got to spend with my children & grandchildren recently since they are living long distances away from me and I AM thankful  for the HOLY SPIRIT enabling me

to stay JOY~filled when I am missing them and the many that I loved that have departed from this earthly & physical existence. I now, for the past year live the town that my dad loved & died in 23 years ago and my mother also died 20 years ago after moving back to Germany. I also miss other relatives, including my first born son, whose mission on earth was completed in just one week!

I am amazed by the gift of comfort their deaths have gifted me with for others & myself thanks to the HOLY SPIRIT OF JESUS CHRIST & GOD THE FATHER !

Be COMFORTED by the BEST COMFORTER EVER ~ THE HOLY SPIRT !

JUST ASK GOD, OUR FATHER and BELIEVE THAT WE WILL BE GIVEN JUST WHAT WE NEED ~ JUST WHEN WE NEED IT….THEN WE ALL CAN BE ÜBER THANKFUL TOGETHER~
BRINGING THE KINGDOM COME ON EARTH as it IS IN HEAVEN!

A KINGDOM OF GRACE & TRUTH & PERPETUAL REST & THANKS~ LIVING & LOVING!

Leave a comment & I will pray for you if you like and/or also tell us what YOU ARE MOST THANKFUL FOR THIS YEAR?

Happy THANKSGIVING~ BLESSED THANKS LIVING DAILY!

If you do not have family close by or still living , consider helping out at a thanksgiving gathering in your town. Last year, I was so blessed to go to 5 different ones & welcome strangers as if they were Jesus…and Guess WHAT ….?….

 

Jesus said , ” …I was hungry and you fed me… I was thirsty & YOU GAVE ME WATER…

I was a stranger and you took me in…”….. Matthew 25:35-40

 

 

GO SEE JESUS TODAY! …by reaching out to a hungry & thirsty for LOVE ~ STRANGER!!!!!

lovinly,

aunt*ruth

grace always

Psalm 100

VIDEO: I Was Hungry…and You Fed Me

I recommend giving directly to the needy yourself and you will get to see lives be transformed. Spending time hearing the stories of the people that we pass in our daily lives & being prepared with a smile, a kind word and some food to share will bless you more than you would ever imagine.

THE WAY TO PREPARE FOR HEAVEN IS TO LIVE HEAVENLY NOW~

BE THANKFUL & GIVE AWAY WHAT YOU HAVE~ like JESUS TAUGHT US!

AND YOU TOO WILL BE FULL OF THANKS & JOY in favor with GOD & ALL!

IT’S LIKE STAYING HI without drugs or alcohol!!!Share this:

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!

LIVE HEAVENLY REST

Ruth

We CHOOSE the atmosphere we live in by accepting it or changing it!

EACH MOMENT OF OUR DAY IS OUR CHANCE TO CHOOSE OUR ATTITUDE &
RESPONSE TO WHERE WE ARE & WHAT HAPPENS

( THE heaven or hell in our mind & surroundings starts with our ATTITUDE FIRST)

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND CAN BE PART OF THE PROBLEM OR PART OF THE SOLUTION~

WE CAN BE HELLISH & RUTHLESS or KIND & HEAVENLY!!
NO MATTER WHAT! IT IS A CHOICE!
If you want to see happy smiling people~ share YOUR SMILE FIRST!
If you want to see a cleaner street~ pick up trash on your way!

If you want less weeds plant good seeds!
DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE PROBLEMS YOU SEE ~ then you have the RIGHT TO
TALK ABOUT IT!
JESUS modeled the heavenly KINGDOM of DOING RIGHT & LIVING IN PEACE~
LIKE NO ONE ELSE because he CHOSE TO OBEY HIS HEAVENLY FATHER DAILY AND
TAKE TIME ALONE IN THE MORNING AWAY FROM DISTRACTIONS….

to BE STILL & LISTEN

with
his heart for the HEAVENLY Father’s instructions for the day!

HE KNEW & STUDIED  the values & principles ( the letter of the law!)
from studying the Torah & Hebrew text which he meditated on day & night .( Psalm 1)

BUT LISTENING ENLIGHTENS THE WAY TO THE SPIRIT OF THE LAW!
THE LOVINGKINDNESS OF THE FATHER AND THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM HE WAS FROM!
Jesus did not have the help of the Holy Spirit until he was baptized. He had good training
but he even at 12 knew who he was and that he had a path to follow.
Read the GOSPELS (John 1 or Luke 1 is a good place to start ) and then read the WHOLE BIBLE a fresh and SEE THE TRUE KINGDOM! ( each day I crave the wisdom of the book of Proverbs ( there are 31 ~ one for each day of the month!) and

the Psalms especially Psalm 1 is the KEY to being a refreshing RIVER OF ABUNDANT LIFE…

meditating on the TRUTHS OF THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM!

A KINGDOM OF KINDNESS ~mercy & truth…with plenty to share especially HOPE!
A KINGDOM where murderous thoughts are condemned! LOVING NEIGHBOR & ENEMY and defending
the widows, orphans (the truly poor & needy !) in their time of distress and they are the
ones that will do MORE FOR THE KINGDOM than the Rich Young Ruler with all his pride & arrogance!
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS A MIND & HEART ATTITUDE of a CHILD ~ color blind to LOVING & HELPING ALL!
GOD WILL HONOR THOSE WHO DO THE KIND KINGDOM WORK~ NOW & LATER!
I AM A LIVING TESTIMENT OF THAT~ JOIN ME~
ASK GOD TO SHOW YOU HIS LOVING HEART TODAY …help a stranger in need ~ in WORD & DEED!
and see yourself as GOD SEES ALL~~~
IN NEED OF GRACE!
lovingly
aunt ruth
grace always

P.S.

WANT MORE?…read on…
and take more power naps daily as needed & a weekly Shabbat REST !
When Jesus was tired he rested~

IMG_6701

Rest is usually more important than food & JESUS MODELED THAT
AND had the blessing of meeting the woman at the WELL and was able to refresh her
with living WORDS OF TRUTH….
(READ JOHN 4 and see the truths THE SON OF GOD SHARED WITH a woman! of a neighboring “enemy” tribe!
JESUS WAS AS RADICAL AS THEY COME!
HE KNEW GOD THE FATHER WAS HIS ONLY JUDGE WHEN HIS CLOSEST FRIENDS & DISCIPLES & FAMILY DID NOT UNDERSTAND
HE DID THE RIGHT THING ~ BECAUSE HE MODELED PERFECTLY ONE WHO LIVED HEAVENLY PEACE AND CHANGED
EVERY WHERE HIS FOOT STEPPED!
PEACE IS NOT MERELY THE ABSENCE OF TENSION..said M.L. KING
“PEACE IS THE PRESENCE OF JUSTICE”
Jesus was JUSTICE PERSONFIED WITH MERCY & HUMILITY…Micah 6:8
DO THE RIGHT THING~ SPEAK THE TRUTH RESPECTFULLY IN LOVE ( EVEN IF OTHERS DO NOT WANT TO HEAR IT AND GOD’S SPIRIT TELLS YOU TO!)
WITH MERCY & HUMILITY AND YOU WILL CHANGE YOUR WORLD & MINE
BRINGING THE KINGDOM COME!
IF YOU AGREE ~OR DISAGREE …leave me a comment and /or pass this on to someone in need of
REFRESHING WATER!…..there are a Lot of DEHYDRATED SOULS OUT THERE!

IMG_6624LET’s HIGH~ DRATE THEM TOGETHER?!?….by staying HIGH~ drated & rested ourselves FIRST! ( see my other blogs on water by typing WATER in the search engine!)
LIKE ON AN AIRPLANE the adults need to put on their airmasks first or who will help the infants & infirmed?

IT IS FOR OUR GOOD! and those around us will benefit from our refreshed spirit!
HOW CAN WE REFRESH OTHERS IF WE ARE DEPLETED
IT IS SELFISH NOT TO TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES AND VERY UN~BECOMING WHEN WE ARE TIRED & GROUCHY LIKE A TWO YEAR OLD NEEDING A NAP & HEALTHY FOOD!
REALLY ! DO YOU NEED A GRANDMOMI LIKE ME TO TELL YOU THIS!
MOST OF AMERICA DOES!
THEY PUSH THEMSELVES WITH DEADLINES & UNREALISTIC DEMANDS & ANOTHER CUP OF COFFEE OR STIMULANT
AND WONDER WHY THEY PUSH OTHERS AWAY! I DO NOT!
TAKE A SIESTA LIKE MOST OF THE REST OF THE WORLD & THE MOST POWERFUL & INFLUENCIAL LEADERS & MOTHERS
KNOW THIS PRINICIPLE!
REST~ unplug ! TAKE TIME OFF or BE OFF …..IT IS A HABIT OF CHOICE FOR PEACE!
times apart helps us not come apart
a day off weekly ~ helps us not have days off & be weakly
GOD’S WAYS & THE EXAMPLE GOD GAVE US TO FOLLOW
IN THE BEGINNING
( Genesis 2:2-3) truly help us sleep & wake & live in HEAVENLY PEACE!
and do not forget to LAUGH

A SHORT CUT TO REFRESHMENT right after sleep

….for laughter

& nature reminds us of the heavenly music & songs

we need to REMEMBER
this should help:

BE NICE

DO YOU FILL YOUR DAY WITH SERVING & GRATITUDE?

Ruth

IF YOU DO~ YOUR DAY AND GOD WILL SERVE YOU  LOVE!!!!!

 

and……WITH JOY & PEACE THAT
IS MORE VALUABLE THAN ANY RICHES OR EARTHLY RELATIONSHIP !

WHEN YOU GIVE …REALLY SACRIFICE SOMETHING FOR A STRANGER OR BETTER YET
AN “ENEMY” IN NEED….

YOU WILL SEE LOVE AND GOD IN A WHOLE NEW WAY!

LOVE & FORGIVENESS ARE “THE HEAVENLY HOME” EVERYONE SEARCHES FOR….

KINDNESS & SACRIFICIAL HUMBLY LOVE ( LIKE JESUS’) IS THE ANSWER
AND EVERYONE CAN CHOOSE HIS WAY ~ BY LETTING GOD ADOPT US INTO
HIS FAMILY!….IF YOU AGREE …WE ARE FAMILY & LIVING HEAVEN ….

HERE & NOW!!!!

 

TRY IT….KINDNESS & LOVE MULTIPLY FASTER THAN ANY CONTAGIOUS DISEASE!

TO GET LOVE & KINDNESS ~ GIVE IT AWAY FIRST…..

 

WE CAN NOT OUT GIVE GOD OR A TRUE LOVE!!
IT KEEPS COMING BACK…..

 

LOVE SOMEONE TODAY….

A CARD ….EMAIL….TEXT…CALL OR VISIT

ESPECIALLY A SMILE & HUG….starting with yourself as if YOUR MOM

WAS THE PERFECT MOM LOVING & HUGGING YOU FOR THE FIRST TIME

….NOW!

THIS IS THE MOMENT WE HAVE…

BE KIND

BE NICE

~grateful for the sacrificial example of the mother of Jesus ~ YESHUA! and all of us with mother's heart's today....especially the ones who are weeping... may we be "held" in wings of love!~

~grateful for the sacrificial example of the mother of Jesus ~ YESHUA! and all of us with mother’s heart’s today….especially the ones who are weeping… may we be “held” in wings of love!~
