Happy Easter

20180428_172027

We are so amazingly loved……aren’t we?

And contained within

is the mystery discovered.

Even the renewal

of earth declares

the shape, the sense

of wholeness.

Happy Easter!

I have many readers with a different faith than my own, so I wish everyone here the blessings of renewal and peace!

Happy Easter

2015-04-11 22.26.47

Fiction inspired by facts.

It was dark, it was damp, and cold. Nothing could be heard except a drop of water dripping from somewhere, once every few seconds. Was He dead really? Yes a number of people had handled His body, and they did not see Him breathing. His skin was cold, blue, and as hard as a rock. Wounds no longer bled.

But at some point, here in this cave, the earth began to shake, and somehow there was a light that pierced the thick walls of the cave. Heaven opened and broke down the doors of death, while angels sang. The intensity of the light was so bright nothing else could be seen, but the great work of restoration began.

His skin began to soften and what was left of his heart and lungs was made whole. A heartbeat, His first in days, shook the ground like thunder, as the demons fled. Pumping now, blood flowing, and then it happened………He took his first breath, or His first new breath. The stone was rolled away, with the light from inside bursting out.

It was from this point on that His followers would never be the same. Peter told Him three times he loved Him, undoing the denial. It is reported that Thomas took three days to recover from touching the Savior. He was in shock.

One thing is for certain. They spent the rest of their lives declaring:

HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED!

“When we love people, we give them hope.”

Friday Night Culture – Faith

20150430_083443

It is Good Friday. This weekend millions of people around the world will celebrate Easter, some in a secular way, but many will have faith burning brightly. And Easter in many places is a part of our culture.

But I hesitate this time of year, and at Christmas, because this is not a faith based blog, and it never has been. Many bloggers are much better at sharing their faith than I am. This is a creative writing blog, that’s the way I have designed it.

I also tend to be very accepting of different views. The fact is, I love and respect all people, and I love different cultures, and I always will. Sometimes I would rather talk to a Buddhist, than a fundamentalist Christian, depending on the people of course. That’s just who I am.

Experiencing love and compassion within a faith though can be so beautiful. I have selected two songs that I hope you will enjoy. They are heart songs really, of looking for the One who made us.

I know in my own life there have been a number of times, I have felt very alone, and even for forsaken, especially in the past several years, but faith and the love of my family keeps me going.

I’ll be posting some more this weekend, including some ancient poems which I love.

Happy Easter everyone! And regardless of your faith, I wish you peace!

Peace and blessings to everyone.

“When we love people, we give them hope.”

I Am Not Alone

This is a beautiful song. Regardless of your faith this music can encourage you. But today is Easter. Millions of Christians across our world will be celebrating the resurrection of Christ.  As you know I don’t evangelize here, because that is not the purpose of this blog. However this is a blog of creative writing done by a Christian. So on Easter I will play beautiful music like this. In a lot of ways Easter is more important than Christmas. It is a day of celebrating hope and new life!

I know I am way too religious for some. But I want to follow the Two Greatest Commandments, of loving God, and loving my neighbor, as my self. I love and respect all people, because that’s the way God is, and He wants me, to be that way too.

We are not alone!

Happy Easter!

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!
