At least it's a full body shot and a close up portrait - got noth'en to hide. ... well, pretty much so - we can all be a bit embarrassed about someth'en. :-)
"Miracle" - by God, The Creator, giving The Purpose to the creation. It's the growth, the development, the revelation, the experience, the ability to look back in one's life and 'see' the true, vital, Godly ordained purpose changing/transforming one's heart/mind/beliefs/understanding/sight into that which is consistent with that same, destined, purpose for which creation is. Being given a heart/mind/belief that sees and embraces this process of transformation, being matured by what God's love is, - that! - this! is miraculous, God's reigning miracle of creation with purpose being lived out in one's life....giving one a true, purposeful, and well lit, directed life.
a fine balance between unique, adventurous, spontaneous, fun and a serious, driving, God-given intention, providing a supreme confidence in the ability to
'make you laugh'
Yes, the subjects of that 'fine balance' being compared were meant to set the stage for a surprise ending to the paragraph.
And, i know, that did not 'make you laugh'. A good, hearty, belly aching, laugh always requires the 'perfect funny storm'
of potentially humoring conditions.
:-) - well, you may be entertained reading, so far.
You like to laugh - Do something with someone whose lives with an ever-present intention to discover that touch sensitive laugh button.
It's a solid foundation, a foundation in which one can be truly thankful continuously, in all things, that's always giving a view of the lighter side of things. Where can humor be without a light on the view?
There is an epidemic of double-mindedness in the US today which brings dis-ease to the funny bone. Not too many people laughing out there; let alone smiling with a big, genuine, smile.
Certainly, a way to describe a contributing factor to the spread of this tenable tabloid-itis with it's desperate, failing, attempts to make the bizarre and weird funny is a misguided view of what's important to life and living. What would our world be like if more people focused on the ideas of wealth and power as follows?
The wealthiest person in the world is one who envies no one,
the most powerful; one who resents no one.
The entire back yard is a perennial water garden. More than a hobby - it's a job to enjoy - like living in your ever-growing/changing/living artwork. 90% of time at home is enjoyed in an 'all season' room with two walls being glass from floor to ceiling; overlooking the pond, waterfalls, re-circulating creek surrounded by timely flowering, aromatic, plants. Well, enough of that, it's tending time is coming soon.
Gourmet and healthy cooking.
We love the hell out of people
not the hell in them.
Not to judge, just discern
living, speaking, example
by which we share & learn
benefits giving, fully ample
what love is there among thieves and robbers
who love thieves and robbers?
The following quote comes at the end of a S. Korean woman's documentary of an old man who lived with/for peace in
his mind as he ventured out daily to walk the subway station,
carrying a sign, that encouraged peace and unification of Korea. Walking barefoot, even through the winter, claiming he would not indulge himself until they unified. Hope this doesn't reduce the value in the quotes below.
The wealthiest person in the world is one
who envies no one,
the most powerful person in the world is one
who resents no one.
Considered wise in human relationships, family and intimacy, we learn and change most through the pain, difficulties and challenges of life (rather than with a margarita on the beach).
However, in addition, a life in the most stable and supportive conditions, with parents who were both well educated/professional, Lawyer/Director of Legal Aid and CPA for a Catholic Nun's organization, never argued in front of the kids, paid for local, private, catholic schooling, adopted 4 children, were both home by 5 EVERY Night for dinner, never spoke foul, degrading, language, were active in civil rights efforts, and celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary before she died.
What do you think a person's home life has to do with who they are today? Surely, significant, it is.
Is it not here, where we first learn to believe what we do, think, therefore, as we do?
What determines our response to people, situations and relationships other than the beliefs that make us who we are?
Truth & Dare: Whose guess is best?
What's the most convenient place between us
that's an easy and safe place? Do some talk'en
and meet'en to see if we'd ask the other
about a dat'en?
