5th Day of Christmas 2013

12days-5Day 5 – May 2013

HE IS THE MOST INTERESTING MAN IN THE WORLD…A virgin gave him birth, roman soldiers bowed down to him, a king & governor made appointments to interview him, priests & scholars were taught by him at age 12, the era’s of time (BC & AD) were created because of him, people buy one another gifts every year because of him, the earth spins and the sun shines because of him, every person draws their breath because of him, every person’s sin has been accounted for because of him, every person has an open door invitation to eat & drink with him…STAY THIRSTY MY FRIENDS

Remember – He is the artist and you are only the picture. You can’t see it. So quietly submit to be painted. CSLewis

They say, “hate the sin but not the sinner” How could you? But.. there was one man to whom I had been doing this all my life – namely myself

Many have refused to join the Church, not because the Church demanded too much, but because it has demanded too little. – Elton Trueblood

Would your life be any different if you didn’t go to church? Do you go because its close to your house or close to your heart?


Because you (Diana) have taken the divine glow and gift of motherhood and given it to your children you will always know today as a HAPPY Mother’s Day!

Obscurity is where God sends all His favorite sons & daughters.

My faith has been torn out like a bridge facing a run away storm. My hope has been thrown off like a roof tossed by a twister.

My psalm is no poem to be read by a voice so fare, but by a raspy soul grappling in its demon’s lair & with one last gasp states, I declare!

Pastors love to talk about the ill effects of Consumer Christianity, but they continue to operate their Church by a Commercial Christianity.

Getting saved by faith is a GIFT, living by faith is WORK. What must we do to do the works of God? Believe. Try it on the impossible.

Don’t be a full time minister and a part time follower.star of fame

Getting a crowd of people into God’s house is a gathering. Getting God into the people’s house is a scattering.

Faith differs from theology–theology is reasoned, systematic, orderly; while faith is disorderly, intermittent, and surprising. ~Buechner

When man comes upon mystery it is a summons to pilgrimage. Adapted from ~Buechner

Breathing out the divine life has become so toxic that nearly all Christians are on artificial respirators trying to stay alive.

Anybody can preach prophetic but can they live prophetic?

Live your life in such a way that you get a “Cross on the Walk of Faith” (not a Star on the Walk of Fame).
