I just now saw that I have received some “quick comments”! Thank you all!
The ants go marching down, through the earth, to get out of the rain…
I started putting things by for the winter with a bag of green beans in the freezer.
This picture was taken this morning. then it started to rain, much needed rain.
I do not have Yahoo Messenger installed as we reformatted and as I was reading the agreement prior to re-installing it, when I got down to the bit about whose lawyers are going to pay for what, I had a “ras le bol” moment and went on to something else. Can’t say it took a chunk out of my life so far…
(ras le bol is when the bowl is filled to the rim, it means one has had it up to here, showing forehead – why not above…)
So now there is an oil spill in the Mediterranean from a Lebanese reservoir bombed by I srael.
Do you think they will stop shooting at each other and work together to clean up the beach?
Yesterday’s newspaper headlines â giving Israel time.
Time for what?
“Today they still mimic forbearance and wisdom,
they dispatch their envoys by roundabout routes so as to delay them,
in order that their pardon reaches the executioner after he has beheaded the weak man,
in order that their condemnation reaches the mighty man ‘s court after he has committed a murder” The Revelation of ArÃ¨s 22/9
Mort par erreur â dead by mistake â this is what they are saying on the radio about the UN observers in Lebanon. So the others were killed on purpose? How can one drop bombs, fire rockets, etc. and then claim death by mistake? That’s like jumping in the pool and then saying oh, I didn’t mean to get wet.
Haven’t we had enough war?
STOP THE KILLING!!!
We wear blinders and filters â blinders of our egotistical desires, filters of our tortuous language, our culture.
The Promised Land is not a geographical space, no one people is chosen as uniquely blessed, elite. It is up to us to build a Universal Promised Land by changing the world within and without. This is what God keeps calling us to do. The Jewish people was meant to be a sort of pilot group. Jesus gave the example of yeast, a sour dough culture, a little piece of it will spread to all the dough and cause it to rise.
Sometimes my sourdough doesn’t get used for awhile â it goes acid â it needs to be fed. The world needs to fed with the Word of its Creator. He has spoken to many (the prophets in the Bible, Muhammad, Michel, and maybe others we have never heard of) and always the same message: be good, help others. We are meant to be spreading love and compassion, sharing, and not greed, hate, war, nor lies.
Why can’t all of us realize that all of us are children of God, all of us have a spark of the divine within that needs to be nurtured, encouraged to shine forth?
“Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me”; this is worth fighting for â in the sense of making a strong effort, of battling the wrong within in order to make it right and become good.
