A beautiful dream arises in visualization

My Joyous Feature

There’s beautiful things in life. There’s a dream that is formed of a fantasy world. A life can be beautiful with a dream. Seeing it like thin air. Looking at attracting things that can be abundant. Counting the blessings altogether. Is like watching it in that different versions of life.

A beautiful dream can make it possible to visualize for. An impossible dream can have its possibility. It can start out with that purpose of life. A dream has its possibility of peace and worthy. It’s sort of like putting together a story. A story of a dream that can build up intensity. Finding it into that secure feeling of life.

A dream can be that beautiful feature. It can pull in that possible standard. Gaining up to its kindly spirits. Like seeing it to believe it.

(repost) One Spirit, present in as many places and people as there are moments in life


This old devotional I wrote ties into our themes of both Spirit in the season after Pentecost and Pride.  Hope it blesses you!


broodyspirit11 Corinthians 12:1-11 calls on me to be very careful not to judge other people of faith.   No one can say Christ is Lord but the Spirit touch her or his soul, and the variety of gifts, callings, and ways of expressing such a faith are as varied as the colors in the morning sky as the sun rises or falling on an autumn morning from the encircling trees of some mountain forest.   The fact someone lives out their faith or understands it differently than me does not mean it is any less authentic.

So often as believers we get too caught up in whose in or out, and judge others who claim to love God and seek to love others. Instead we are better served…

Picking up an inner guidance throughout life

My Joyous Feature

A true guide to that inner feeling has a voice of natural process. Addressing up to that point of view throughout life. There’s a lesson that can tell us the facts about our actual selves. Through it all we can tell ourselves “what’s right for us” and we can think about so many opportunities to select from. We can take it from the bottom of our hearts.

We trust in our loving selves that there’s things that we can encounter on. Knowing our inner guide through so many aspects of life. Shedding light on all the negativity out of us and replacing it with so many positive things. When positive things are in we feel a lot better and a lot more clear throughout our daily values.

We can correct the improper things that happen to us and use things that are positive and open minded. Finding it perfect to…

(repost) Holy Spirit as Mother, Christ as Big Brother


This is something I wrote some time ago on the Spirit’s role as Mother of all living, and Christ as brother and friend.  In what ways do you experience the Spirit as this presence in your life?


Our readings in the New Testament focus first on the work of Christ as older brother, the one who has gone ahead of us on the path God has laid out for us. Yet they center on the work of the Holy Spirit, which Trinitarian theologian Jurgen Moltmann has come to call the motherly work of God with us and for us.
Jurgen Moltmann, in his book The Source of Life, writes:

“If the experiences of the Holy Spirit are grasped as being a `rebirth’ or a `being born anew’, this suggests an image for the Holy Spirit which was quite familiar in the early years of Christianity, especially in Syria, but…

The healing power of gratitude

My Joyous Feature

A de-stressor takes a part of calmness through the body and brain. Something that’s powerful to say and writing it down. It can be like putting down goals. Bringing it into that powerful standard. Passing it through that peaceful state.

It can bring that healing sensation. Sensing the need to soothe like listening to classical or relaxing music. It can add some meditation along with it. It may reduce the level of tension. It’s called gratitude. The soothing phrase is “the healing power of gratitude”.

Through the healing power of gratitude is that you’re thankful for the life and support you have in your lifetime. Gratitude does bring that power of healing. Putting that healing process through that peaceful ending of life.

Alive in this Perfect Moment


Your senses notice the sky ablaze with color.
The sun emits a soft steady light
while slowly sinking into the depths
marking the close to another day.
You are alive with the beauty of knowing
that this is a perfect moment.
