3 ring circus.

Some days can feel like a circus.

Be Brave!

There’s a reason there are 3 rings under the big-top.

 

“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in the very nature of God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!” 

Phillipians 2: 5-8

The explanation of the Parable (of the Sower)

Now the parable is this:  The seed is the word of God.  The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, that they may not believe and be saved.  And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy; but these have no root, they believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away.  And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature.  And as for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Luke 8:11-15

in the world

and most of them

make me smile,

but you’re different.

You make

my heart smile!

For my daughter I sensed that my release of her would be a new “different.” My expectations of the circumstances were different; my preparation would be different. I sensed the difference, but wondered what this new difference would feel like.

And where would God be?

This weekend I found the answer (to both) in the

JOY

that I witnessed

in the difference in her, my darling daughter!

And just how much of Him there already is

reflected in this heart of hers,

which is becoming whole.

Forty days before an embryo is formed, a heavenly voice calls out—so and so is to marry such and such,” says the Talmud. This has been orchestrated from before you were born. Your souls are partners, matching halves of a single whole. The Talmud describes the search for a spouse as looking for that “lost part” of yourself.    -a parable

The Joy of seeing

(how beautiful it is)

that God has indeed made

the half to her completeness.

And what great joy is felt in this new “difference”

as my heart smiles for the two of them

as they prepare to have Him always united with thee.
