praises...

I'm at home.... all alone, and just relishing in that.

Loads of laundry getting done, and I'm just praying the rain can stay away for another hour while it all dries.

Music blaring in the living room... and I was thinking, wouldn't it be amazing if the people next door were listening to the lyrics, wouldn't they be curious. Expleetives reeling from that side. Mike would laugh cause I just can't inforce my swear jar on them!

The words right now.... wherever you are, wherever you've been, he's been there... so let his people sing......

Something to think about.... that it's wonderful being exactly where we are right now. To not worry about what may happen next, how things will work out, but to just keep praising our awesome God.

OK..... so I alluded to a rather strange thing I heard.... which of course is odd, cause elaboration has not happened as yet.

"Isn't it obvious!?"

I was praying the other night, after getting off the phone from a friend. Someone I don't know terribly well, but enjoy yaking to, and would like to know better.
We often talk about our passions, and what we would like to be doing.... what we feel called to be doing, and just how we're going to get there.
We'd just talked about the idea of starting up a business together, which was bizzare in itself.... but something I've wondered about for a while.

Maybe I should back up here.... There have been so many coincidences with this whole relationship from the start. Little surprises that have had me stop and go wow. I know that God has been having fun sitting back, and just letting it all unfold, slowly....

Anyway.... after this last conversation, I just sat back and prayed... asking that God would reveal what it was that I was supposed to be pursuing with this person. Should we get serious about this business idea? Was there something else?
As I was sitting there I just heard " isn't it obvious?" It was so clearly spoken. I was just like. HUH? Isn't WHAT obvious?

I have zero idea.... but am realising that there is a much bigger plan, and that I need to keep walking down the path that I'm obviously on, and just keep asking questions.
It is pretty funny though.....

God's witt strikes!

I'm off to go wrap up Christmas presents. (Reminder.... 12 days to go! wohooo)

Wise words - from the mighty Einstein himself:

"Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds."

So what is 42?. Certainly not my age...
But I had to ask what Tane wha 2 means...

We each need to feel our lord as someone we can reach out and touch.. and having died at least once and having miraculous close calls as if to strengthen others.. its worth me rambling....

For I have seen first hand the absolute worst of what mankind can do... and in the boughs of desperation.. who did I find but OneGod watching over me....

You can not share lives thats not the point but surely one point is to choose carefully the ones God wants you to help...

So I challenge the world before my revelation comes true and I get to die again.... Reach down as deeply as you can and then know its not deep enough,,,, try killing yourself and in your last death throw crying out his name and being put back...if only to have learnt it is not time... I have had that happen twice. So that means this world is not about me it is about all that care to know and live the truth the privilege I think I know is in this life I know and what a privilege it is not to have reached the next to understand...

This is the long haul and I am here to fill a gap and train another soul... what a privilege to just live to see another sunset or make another call... I am god's child I do not doubt as are you... nor do I wonder about 42. Or why this child chose that magic number.

tanewha = man four 2

Go out one and all and walk for me and ask yourself. If there was an entity how special must she be to have planned the past and the future and the outcomes of the whole universe which is just one of tens of thousands...

Do you feel like fighting her or his children?. Or wondering what the point was of having his son live and die... or as a breadcrumb once asked.. what happened to those twenty missing years...

Even when you know the answer thats not the point either...

One point surely is that every living thing was born with the same tools to mirror his life, and money and things don't matter, and even if we each start by imagining the stranger we are meeting is ourselves. We know how we feel and what we want so make that happen for a stranger and in return feel God smile... for in the end we will each be judged by what we did with our gifts.. Our gifts from God...

What is 42?

Try this if the ultimate answer to the ultimate question is 42 and Jesus who's birthday not enough think about was 32 when he offered himself up, then what is 42 - 32 = 10 ?...

but in binary the language of this computer 10 in binary = 2 in decimal. Just you and God are left...

Go Figure!

Or perhaps you'd prefer to think as this scientist could that its all coincidence.

Go hold up your life.. as for each of us our time will come... and may you see your best friend at your own funeral say 'Yeah she did it right!'

its interesting what happens in the obvious, i can think of all sorts of witty Confucius quotes to tag in here but the art of your post tells me to shut up! so i am. lol -but i think there's a reason never coincidence, i must have stumbled into your diary for it, since that next button takes me to some awful places. Clarity, i hope the veil lifts soon for you CJ, your doing what i do a lot of myself, praying and listening. :)
Best of luck!
