after a break --- somethoughts....

For me this is the loveliest poem…

A sonnet by Christina Rossetti

If I could trust mine own self with your fate,

Shall I not rather trust it in Gods hand?

Without Whose Will one lily doth not stand,

Nor sparrow fall at his appointed date;

Who numbereth the innumerable sand,

Who weighs the wind and water with a weight,

To Whom the world is neither small nor great,

Whose knowledge foreknew every plan we planned.

Searching my heart for all that touches you,

I find there only love and loves good will

Helpless to help and impotent to do.

Of understanding dull, of sight most dim;

And therefore I commend you back to Him

Whose love your love’s capacity can fill.

NOW A LITTLE MIND EXERCISE

Think of all the blessings you have received…
Start with your own birth
Do not hurry through the list
You will di

a repeat [well the bbc does it often] for core

as i am sure most people pray i hope this is acceptable… do say if i am out of line

HOW UNWORTHY I AM TO PRAY YET BY GOD’S GRACE I MAY
WE ASK PLEASE GIVE HEALTH TO THOSE THAT WE LOVE AND CARE FOR
WE HAVE TRIALS TO GO THROUGH AND SO WE GIVE THANKS KNOWING HE IS BY THE SIDE OF EVERY ONE AND YET
WE STILL ASK FOR HEALTH AS WITH OUR HEALTH WE MAY
DO MORE WORK [WE THINK].. IS THIS SO? OR DO WE PERFORM
THE GREATER TASKS THROUGH ADVERSITY?

something i really want to do

i really want to write about this going to heaven versus going to hell thing…
you see someone said he didn’t expect to go to heaven… and anyway how could he?what about all his friends that don’t believe? what about muslims and hindus and rocket scientists? ok ok i admitit …. that is all a bit exagerated and he certainly did not say rocket scientiists but you get the gist of this.. oh yes you do…
well you may accept the term Creator God i hope you will as any one that can create the beauty of this planet must surely be a God with a capital G.
so what is my opinion? i believe that we are too narrow minded to grasp how absolutely wonderful God is… we are too ready to judge, put down, critisize… we have come up with a load of dogma and we want to stick with it… or do we?
for sure i have ver…
