Trump Letter in the Glory of Good

Dear Mr. President Trump,

As humans, we all fall short of the glory of God, and I know for a fact I am a greater sinner than you.  I have had two abortions, one of which I kept secret, both before I knew better.  To know better is where I want for all to be, and it is a far stretch across the abyss created by the swamp of evil in the world, specifically in Washington, D. C. where you chose to serve with an open heart your talent of negotiating for the good of the American people.  You recognized the need to redirect our nation in the world, and particularly to help improve our sinking economy.  Your God given genius to envision the best in people reminds of this quote written by one of my favorite writers:

“In God there is no hunger that needs to be filled, only plenteousness that desires to give.” _C.S. Lewis Keep Reading

Aloha Blessings, God and Country

Aloha Blessings from afar to all who breathe the air of the Pacific Ocean….In my heart all whom we met in the island circle remain as vivid stars and I pray the storm passes as each one does…
The treasure of the years lies in the memories of all the places and people who made an enormous difference in our growth. I just checked the DRUDGE REPORT to get a glimpse of the news, and nearly heard a thunder clap from the Texas sky above.
Is it all true ? I pray for God’s intervention because I am a Conservative Christian who shutters with sadness to feel the effects of the Saul Alinsky Storm. I pray the uninformed be mercifully shown the path to wisdom.
God leaves the light on. The nonbelievers trash, destroy, disobey, disrespect, and murk the world in mud slinging baths because their hate has consumed their minds.
I thought the Facebook and Google scandal was a hoax…Is it? Do they really want to silence the stable? The better than normal society is as human as Trump. Then there are those whose sins done intentionally or unintentionally simply sweep the dirt under the dusty rugs. How dare the channels of news be so deceiving! How dare politicians who have made millions from our tax dollars want to impeach our President because he wants to clean up the disguised corruption!
I see no reason for the silent majority to be silent. The sinners that we are, we have to be held accountable, and in holding the darkness of the deep state of chameleon like manipulative corruptors, we will step into the light of truth about Benghazi, about the Clinton Foundation, about the bought and paid for Comey and his wife and all who hid and still hide like rats in the daytime.
The light of God will always be on. The best we can do is to step forward and tell the truth, be the light of maturity exemplifying the treasure of awareness…
Aloha Blessings means this evil spewed will pass through and the lane of life will be lit eternally. God bless our United States of America for the liberty of speech, and our President for not being a deceiver and for standing in the line of fire created by an army duped in ignorance.
Know the difference between right and wrong. Know the ungodly is responsible for irresponsibility. Unite in forgiveness to be a hand of wholesome service. We cannot allow the liberals to continue to dismantle our American home.
Please make this go “viral” as they say…God bless.

The Truth and Mr. Trump

To be soaked in the warmth of the sun as a gentle breeze embraces in the stillness of the moment while strolling contentedly towards dreams yet to inevitably unfold is to live in complete truth.  Imagine if all encounters were met with the same sense of purpose to fulfill a feeling ingrained to be served.  Visions to make a difference make a difference, yet in truth, in this less than perfect world, even an intelligent solution can be met with opposition.

To wish for all whom we encounter to have pure motives in life so as to serve competently without deception is to set the bar fairly high.  No one is perfect, and even after a deluge of mistakes, many strive for ideals that would in fact be of exceptional value in life, yet a force hinders the progress.  That force opposes truth at the cost of ruining dreams, visions, plans, goals, and is bound to attack to aim at character assassination.

Our 45th President, Mr. Donald J. Trump, is the present day martyr of the most irresponsible, poorly educated, and/or intentionally devious humans.  The faces of the opposing force carry ignorance as a crown of hatred.  When the truth should shine on their misdeeds, the blame of shame will be on the perpetrators of lies.  Unfortunately, all who choose to attack are actually crying out soulful screams of discontentment.  Their outrageous behaviors are not commendable but are fueled by opportunists too incompetent to shine as noble leaders.

Heartbreak Restoration

Near a scarred place, close to the heart of the wound, appears a golden butterfly.  The very place that nudges a friend to see, the elbow with all its strength, rests with the gentle feet of the gold in a golden demonstration of love.

That is the way God speaks to us though we flutter from weed to flower and poise beautifully when noticed even taken for granted.  We know that nagging feeling yet we do it to God.  It is worse when the actions of others simply break our hearts.

What does it take to break another’s heart?  Is ours more fragile than theirs?  Can we ever recover from the severity of the despair felt when the ache is deeper than any well can hold the sacred water intended to cleanse, heal, and nourish?

The truth is emotions can be likened to the perfume bottles displayed behind glass counters.  They hold a scent encased in various shapes and colors.  The attraction to one over another is personal, and less is always more  in close quarters.

If there was a light that could shine  but love in every soul, we who love deeply, would shine it on the world for all to take a glimpse and perhaps take a chance to follow its lead.

As heartbroken as we have all been for hurts known completely by our Lord Jesus Christ, I thank God for the respite in the words so aptly spoken in the Prayer to Our Father.  I thank God for the Jesus Prayer that has sustained me when no one could.

In Psalm 147:3, the anonymous psalmist proclaims:

__He heals the brokenhearted

and binds up their wounds.

I wish you trust.

Thank you dearest Stela for the photographs from Romania.

Dear First Lady Melania Trump: How Flexible Do We Need To Be?

” Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. Love never fails.”
_1 Corinthians 13:7-8

 

Quite frankly, I don’t know that any of us is equipped to deal with all that befalls us when mean spirited people aim to devour with a “splash for attention”.  I am talking about the storm that has no mercy, that is bent on destroying, that rips trees, breaks windows, and inundates the streets causing accidents, and the perfect opportunity for some to sit at home cozy with families while others break into places to create even more havoc.  The hail dents.  The wind bends and once the snow freezes, the scene leaves us stunned, observant, and yearning for spring.

Evil is destructive and none of us can ever imagine how bad it can be.  I am not really talking about a freezing snow storm expected in Northern climates.  I am talking about people who disregard the seriousness and importance of being decent, of being discreet, of being better rather than worse.

I hope the letter I wrote our First Lady Melania is delivered and received.  I hope she has honest people around her who will look out for her well being without hidden microphones to poke fun at her accent, or to report something no one outside of her inner circle ought to hear.

May her love be greater than the hatefulness in flame in the mainstream media.

The Vivacious Word and World Peace

I can remember lively moments.  Those times linger like fluttering butterflies; they show up in spring like fireflies.  There is absolutely nothing that can compare to a child’s vivacity in the face of delightfulness.  If we could fill our hearts with their joy, I think we would literally float…

Like gathered shells and hearts of coral, our stories have a place to nurture.

Today was an enormously weighty day for me and the word vivacious took me to boxes of photos to find and share the best of smiles.  I cannot get my phone to send the pictures to my computer as I have been doing.  Suspicion has raised my eyebrows to consider the state of our reality in America.  Maybe since I stepped forth being a total Christian Conservative, as a dear friend suggested, my postings will be shuffled, and somehow made to go to the back of the line.

I’m not sure and at this point it doesn’t matter.

I know that all who are meant to read these thoughts will, and none other,  So, I rest  “vivaciously” to recommend a great book for anyone having that secret dream waiting to be made into a reality.

There’s Always Time for Greatness Who did what from ages 1-100 by Andrew Postman appeared as a sole bloom in spring.  The great news about it is that we have the thumbprint of our greatness stamped in our hearts, and to get the confidence up, we must be on fertile ground somewhere and certainly surrounded by encouragement.

” All the forces in the world are not as powerful as an idea whose time has come.” _Victor Hugo

I think the time has come.  The idea came to me in the best prayer we can say: “Thy will be done.” Keep Reading

To Be Unburdened

A collage of my cousin Adriana, her daughter, Monica, and her husband, Dan.  I love them.

Today is Orthodox Easter.  The greeting in Romanian  is “Hristos A Inviat!” Christ is Risen!

The response : “Advevarat A Inviat!” Indeed He is Risen!

My cousin Adriana Muntean from Constanta, Romania, sent me a text…and I’ll try to translate it:  The whiskered bunny is a  lucky omen on Easter…  He does not leave presents in your boots…  He has other secrets…  “pasca” a soft braided bread filled with cheese…  red eggs, and “cozonac” similar to the Italian “panettone” sweet bread with raisins or nuts…  roasted lamb…  and a Happy Easter…  It all rhymes and sounds like a jingle.

What matters most is that Adriana thought to send me the message…  Unburdened by the weight of the reality the family experienced due to my mother and father leaving Romania, my cousin’s husband called and I spoke with all of them, including my Tanti Lila.   They did not hold a grudge.  They forgave my parents.  My grandfather was imprisoned for years.

Be Kind as Love Is

Edna Lofing’s favorite Thumper quote “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothin at all.”
My own quote: “The sky can never have too many stars…There is room for everyone to shine…”

Intention is placed at the onset of each day.  When I begin my work at the computer, I am greeted by a Rhema greeting.  Some time ago, I came upon a message that spoke to my heart.  I have kept some as guideposts to shed light on the obscure.  How the random one appears is a mystery I enjoy.  I take the pearls and feel the smoothness from their hands to mine.  Somebody has amassed a wealth of divine information to pass along.  I keep the ones that speak to my heart.  I keep them for nourishment, for the good they can serve anyone through me from them.

”  I am but a tiny pencil in the hand of the Lord.  

None the less, He writes beautifully. ” _ Mother Theresa of Calcutta

I have chosen to share this Rhema to explain that the good reaped has been seeded in all of us by God.  We just share differently the good we do… Keep Reading

To Be Just for a Day and Thereafter

To be just means to live with integrity.  That is doing the right thing when no one is watching, for your own conscience’s benefit.

We don’t talk like that enough.  Yes, if we could have books for every grade from first to twelfth grade addressing the benefits of a clear conscience, surely trust would drown the cruel bullying.  Maybe adults would be bound to being more honest, less deceptive, and expect and hold politicians to a higher standard.

” May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us.”
_Psalm 67:1

“I am not bound to win,

But I am bound to be true.

” I am not bound to succeed,

but I am bound to live up to what LIGHT  I have.” _Abraham Lincoln

Be Star Shine Daily became a dream in order to bring to light  problems that can be resolved in the right frame of mind.  It is always easier to stretch out a scroll with pointers than it is to actually integrate them into action.  However, every seed well planted will yield a better harvest.  We can be nourished by the thoughts written by others.   The masters of the ages bring us calm.

“Only the just man enjoys peace of mind.” _ Epicurus 

To make an effort to live justly for one entire day may well be the foundation of something marvelous in one’s life.  To begin the day with a prayer brings the miracles nearby.  My life changed from the day I began writing a prayer to God; in the letter, I ask for His mercy in the name of His Son Jesus Christ.
