it’s going to be a weird lent…

The Eighth Commandment:

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

Exodus 20:18

God wants us to be different from the World.

Even though we may be mocked and ridiculed.

Before the pieces began to drop in my life I fought against this idea of persecution with my heart.

I was completely naive to the possibility others would judge me & use my beliefs to condemn me.

But, I have hence learned this reality deeply.

Joyfully I proclaim, “It’s OKAY!”

I’m done being stuck in the old thing trying to make it look like the new thing.

I am no longer fighting the new thing and calling it warfare – it’s change and growth and the increase I have been praying for.

I’m okay with the mess and unreconciled pieces.

I’ve dug deep, found my roots again, and experienced a downpour of revelation.

And the most important lesson of all…

I’ve grown stronger in my tribe!

hugs n’ blessings to all the weirdos who are a part of my tribe.

Praying for all those caught in the deception of lies.

CCC: 2464 The eighth commandment forbids misrepresenting the truth in our relations with others. This moral prescription flows from the vocation of the holy people to bear witness to their God who is the truth and wills the truth. Offenses against the truth express by word or deed a refusal to commit oneself to moral uprightness: they are fundamental infidelities to God and, in this sense, they undermine the foundations of the covenant.

2477 Respect for the reputation of persons forbids every attitude and word likely to cause them unjust injury.278 He becomes guilty:

– of rash judgment who, even tacitly, assumes as true, without sufficient foundation, the moral fault of a neighbor;

– of detraction who, without objectively valid reason, discloses another’s faults and failings to persons who did not know them;279

– of calumny who, by remarks contrary to the truth, harms the reputation of others and gives occasion for false judgments concerning them.

just a couple of weirdos from a lent gone by!

  1. I’m in your tribe my precious friend! I’m happy to be a weirdo. And even more proud the older I get. When I no longer feel I belong to this world I am exclusively God’s and so happy to HIS people! I’m sending you love as we begin the lent season. May the “heart”conditions that plague our fellow humans be healed and eyes opened to the truth! Sending you huge hugs and lots of love! ❤️♥️💛🤗

    1. Amen! It reminds me of the phrase, “Keep it simple, stupid.” I wish I would have learned THAT sooner…. Hugs to you for taking the time to stroll through my site and share.💕
