We are yearning for Christ

It will be said on that day,

Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, so that he might save us.

This is the Lord for whom we have waited. Let us be glad and rejoice.

Just as the love of a mother for her son can grow while she is waiting for

his return, and just as lovers can rediscover each other during long per-

iods of absence, so also a intimate relation with God can become more

mature while we wait patiently in expectation for his return. (Henri J. M.

Nouwen, Out of Solitude.

Henri Nouwen invites us to reflect on the tension between our desire for a solitude and the demands of contemporary life. He reminds us that it was in solitude that Jesus found the courage to follow God‘s will. And he shows us that fruitful love and service must spring from a living relationship with God. Beautifully written, elegantly simple, Out of Solitude, as fresh today as it is/was thirty years ago.

“We want to overcome problems and adversities and want to change at all costs. An alternative is to care for ourselves, each other, and our world.”

Thomas Moore from the Foreword

Imagine the disappointment of the apostles when Jesus did not return in their

lifetimes. They waited for him faithfully, so eagerly. They must of missed him in

an almost gut-wrenching way, they who were accustomed to being in his physical

presence.

Let’s use our imaginations and share their experience. Let’s imagine walking with

Jesus in the fields, listening to his worries, witnessing his compassion. Let us all

imagine eating lunch with him or laughing together art something funny that one

said. Let’s be one of them and miss him like they did. Let’s be one of them and

miss him like they did. Let us yearn for the return of Christ like the apostles did.

Let us all await his return with their eagerness and fulness.

He is our friend too.

Lord Jesus, you walked this earth long ago. We were not there. We did not see

you healthe sicj or cast out demons. We did not witness your death or a rising

from the dead. But we follow you each day. We await your return. Amen.

Published in September 14, 2016 Updated: November 18, 2019 Truely considered: July 22; 2o22 Constitution Day is September 17th! Are you going to celebrate? Before you dismiss the idea of celebrating a piece of paper that’s almost 230 years old, you might want to consider just how important it is. The U.S. Constitution is at the foundation of every single law in America. It’s at the heart of how we think, act, and govern as Americans. History of the Constitution: Once the American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain in 1776, they had to get down to the business of running their own country. The Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation in 1777, which was later ratified by the 13 original colonies. But it soon became clear that in their effort not to be dominated by a strong central government like the one ruled by King George III, they’d made their new government too weak. In 1789 a newer constitution was adopted It created a stronger centralized government that shared power among three branches: executive (President), legislative (Congress), and judicial (Supreme Court). That document remains at the bedrock of the way our entire country is run and has an impact on all of our citizens – even you. 10 [ten] ways the Constitution Affects OUR Lives: 1. We can vote in any up-coming election (if you’re 18 and registered) 2. WE can go to any church you choose. 3. WE can say (and write) whatever WE want. [ censirs go to Hell! ] 4. You can own a firearm 5. WE can either independantly or gather in groups to participate in protests. 6. OUR property can MOT be searched; without a warrant allowing proper official's to do so. 7. WE cannot be forced to testify against ourselves. 8. WE cannot be discriminated against by anyone. 9. WE ARE required to pay OUR proper income tax. 10. WE CAN inhale either smoke or alcohol. no weed, yet... dig it? davebuckleslefthand.tumblr.com/archive Go well, Be careful.
