BE IN LOVE

                                         ~ THE SONG OF SONGS ~

Song of Solomon 6:3 and the whole book about GOD’s HEART OF LOVE & ROMANCE
FOR US TO MODEL…IN A MARRIAGE

read it & wait for the PERFECT MATCHMAKER TO MAKE YOU A MATCH

~ MADE IN HEAVEN~

UNTIL THEN LET GOD BE YOUR FOCUS & ROMANCE PARTNER TO HOLD YOU~

GOD THE FATHER WILL SATISFY OUR EVERY NEED OF OUR SOUL

~ psalm 37:4~

AND WIPE AWAY THE TEARS OF JOY AS YOU
DANCE OVER THE ASHES OF LIFE

And whatever you do ~ don’t look for love in the wrong places…

BE Loving and love will always find & surround you in the most healing ways

when we let GOD be our BELOVED & best dance partner!

Don’t be afraid to TRUST but VERIFY and take time to let love grow.

LOVE IS PATIENT . I Corinthians 13 wait for the right one & let GOD have first place always.

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

YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL

REAL LOVE IS SO BEAUTIFUL &  WANTS TO CONNECT ~ like GOD ( & some dogs) UNCONDITIONALLY! God “speaks” and visits us in mysterious ways~DOWN is OFTEN UP!

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 !

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!)

HEY ~ HEY ~ HEY…

PURE LOVE IS LIGHT ENERGY

My favorite definition of love is desiring the BEST for all without controlling or being controlled. Love is a choice and an action. It is not just words. LOVE PROVES ITSELF.

That is why the FATHER sent the SON to rescue us by pure love so we can live in that pure love and share that pure love. John 3:16-17

Only Jesus modeled that PERFECTLY and that is why I believe the words from

John 14:6  ” I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE and NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME.” ( read the whole chapter & the whole book …or better yet listen to it

by the many free downloads now available …If we just stick to JESUS words we can not go wrong…there is NO LAW AGAINST HIS WAY OF WALKING & TALKING…in LOVE.

THE TRUE LIGHT & ENERGY SOURCE !  THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD IS JESUS!

ENERGY ~ FOCUS

Jesus was always pointing the way so we could be ONE with the Father as HE was.

Look up and ask for light to shine. IF YOU BELIEVE~ YOU WILL SEE THE LIGHT!

AND THEN YOU WILL SHINE FOR OTHERS TO SEE THE LIGHT OF LOVE ….

MULTIPLYING LOVE BY GIVING LOVE NOT BY SPEAKING HATE!

SPEAK LIFE….SHARE…FOLLOW WORDS OF LIFE….FORGIVE ALL AND ASK FORGIVENESS

FOR IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO PEACE…THE ONLY WAY BACK TO THE FATHER ON THE BROKEN ROAD OF LIFE….

GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD…

AND GOD DOES!

GOD BLESS YOU

LOVE

GRACE &

T*RUTH

through eyes of forgiveness & love

GOD LOOKS AT THE HEART….I hope you will too!….because of HIS forgiveness & love for all!

I do not understand a lot of things but I do know the JOY of GOD Forgiving me & Loving me & LOVING unconditionally THROUGH ME!

My first & favorite Bible verse as a young child was  John 3:16

“For GOD SO LOVED the world,                                            (YOU & ME)

that He gave HIS ONLY SON, ( JESUS)                       (His most precious treasure)

that whoever BELIEVES IN HIM                       (to adopt us as HIS Spiritual Children too!)

shall not perish but have eternal life.”                                ( now & forever)

NOW THAT IS LOVE   ~~~~~                     A PRICELESS GIFT TO PROVE LOVE  !!!

HAVE YOU RECEIVED THAT PURE LOVE INTO YOUR LIFE & HEART YET!!!???

How can God keep forgiving me and you? …for the little & big things…how could Jesus forgive his murderers?…the ones IN THE CHURCH & SYNAGOGUE and you & me?…how can we forgive liars, parents who slapped us and abandoned us, the liars, stealers, murderers & rapists in & out of churches , hospitals , police stations…..YES….all is being exposed now…& we better look in the mirror before we cast the first stone!!!!

JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD LIVE THIS LIFE PERFECTLY BECAUSE HE WAS GOD IN THE FLESH…THAT IS WHY HE CAN TALK TO HIS FATHER FOR US….and that is why we too can have access to the Father’s Throne of Grace because of & through Jesus…

I used a challenging photo on purpose…hopefully to get you & I to think about the EYES ~ the window of our soul! WHAT DO YOU SEE….it is all perspective…it is art or do you see something you should or should not be detracted by….let GOD BE YOUR EYES and OPEN YOUR EYES TO PURE LIGHT & LOVE and forgiveness & freedom!

ASK …..

How can I forgive myself when I blow it ?…how can I forgive you when you hurt me?…judge me?…mistreat me? …ignore me?…kill me or lust after me with your eyes no matter what I am wearing?….only by looking up to Jesus on the cross looking down at me with love and knowing that for my tears and yours he came to suffer & die …so we could have eternal life with HIS FATHER living in love & forgiveness…looking at the heart and not at the outside….we all blow it ….and though we purpose & strive not to we must practice following CHRIST’S example and just purely LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR as OURSELVES by staying close to GOD & looking in GOD’S EYES & HEART OF LOVE!

GOD IS MY ONLY JUDGE…HE KNOWS MY HEART …YOU DO NOT unless you KNOW MY GOD TOO!

GOD KNOWS MY NAME and HE LOVES ME IN SPITE OF MY WEAKNESSES and IMPERFECTIONS and maybe because of them….because I KNOW I NEED GOD AND I AM SO THANKFUL THAT HE LOVES ME JUST THE WAYS I AM AND THE WAYS I AM NOT!
I AM HIS CHILD AND GOD IS MY BELOVED!!!!

Song of Solomon 1-8

Song of Solomon 2:1,16 ” I am my beloved & He is mine!”

GOD’S BANNER OVER ME IS LOVE!

Have you received His love & forgiveness yet?

You must only ask!

Leave a comment & I will pray for you to my Father in Heaven who already knows your name & all your faults & loves you JUST THE WAY YOU ARE!!!!

said to do and that when we take care of the thirsty & hungry & stranger …and our family too we are doing it as if we were doing it unto JESUS…for WE ARE CREATED IN

Blessings to Moms & ALL ~ daily!

 

“I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love & duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best that I could bring to it.”~ Rose Kennedy        

 

         ~  Grace wholeheartedly agrees ~

 

Thank you MOM ( Omi)  and ‘the motherly’ everywhere TODAY!

 

photo copyLet’s teach children well~

to LOVE all creatures big & small ….with grace & t’ruth

IMG_6012Yep~ that’s me …practicing lovin all the children of the world of all ages & colors…then & now…

red …brown…yellow…black & white…got a little of all the colors in my blood & heart!

Happy tear~filled day for me as bittersweet memories flood my soul…Missing my dear momi who sang & read to me, loving me beautifully until she died almost 20 years ago in Deutschland, 3 years after my sweet daddy died by my side in Ashland…missing my firstborn son who died in my arms 25 years ago in Oakland …

HAPPY 25th BIRTHDAY  TODAY DEAREST LUKE Henry Clifford _____( 9-16 May 1990)

May all be comforted in losses like these including myself & my dear former husband of 33 years!We NEVER “get over” griefs like these but we hopefully learn to live with them ~comforting others as we heal!

For all of those who miscarry a baby I share your grief in that as well~ 8 miscarriages…6 in a row between my last 2 precious sons!…GOD CARRIES THEM IN HIS ARMS ….we carry them in our heart for ever! Comfort those around you wherever you are because we are all hiding griefs too hard to bare unless someone cares….BE JESUS to someone ….be their “angel” in disguise by having a listening heart being willing to risk reaching out to “touch” the hurting hearts under the frowns and smiles! WE ALL NEED A FRIEND!

Whenever I am not with my precious children & grandchildren I miss them and today especially I hope they know my love since we are not together & live in different parts of the country scattered around the globe but NEVER far from my heart!

Let’s keep making lemonade on the days that seem to be full of lemons & then share it with others!

“IF We can’t be with the ones we love~ LOVE THE ONES YOU ARE WITH!!!”

AHH….now that sounds REFRESHING & healing!!! ~ LOVE, with or without the lemon~aid!

LOVE CONQUERS ALL! even death and pain! JESUS PROVES IT DAILY FOR ME!

BLESSINGS ON YOUR DAY WHOEVER YOU ARE!!! I hope we can hug & share some lemonade soon~until then

HUG SOMEONE FOR ME & Jesus!

~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!~

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!!!!…..
