Psalm 96-12-13 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for He cometh, for He cometh to judge the earth: He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth
This morning when I rose, I did not have any doubt. How often do we use these words as a way of giving God the glory. Why is this our declaration of thankfulness of how Jesus Christ died, was buried and then He rose? This is just one occurrence that we talk about when we speak of our Resurrection Sunday. I have spent some times reading the Psalms as I look at the awesome acts of resurrection. The Psalmist shows us this in many of the scriptures.
This morning when I rose , I began my day with Psalm 96.12-13. The words opened my thoughts to Jesus and His marvelous gift of sacrifice. I believe that we can find Jesus from Genesis to Revelation and throughout are the acts of Resurrection. Why do I choose to call them acts of resurrection? Acts are defined as to execute, carry out, accomplish, serve and achieve. I see all of these as examples of why Jesus came down from heaven but did not come down from the Cross. We are able to rejoice each morning with each new rising sun and our own rising from sleep. This is a testimony of praise for me to be able to see, hear, smell, taste, and touch, so this begins my praise for the day.
This morning when I rose, I found that like the Psalmist in 95: 6, I was able to “worship and bow down.” I received my blessings to begin the day and this again gave me the opportunity to believe in the Saving Power that came from the Holy Word of Jesus being raised up and ascending to heaven. This is our model of the Godly happiness that the Psalmist gives us. Paul also said in Philippians 2:6, “Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. What an exclamation of love we are able to share daily. I just want to run and encourage others with these words. This will forever be my song of praise as I remember the awesome act of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior each time I rise because “ He Rose, He Rose, He Rose.
I have so many snow pictures but this White Elephant was found outside my door and I named him Wellness. I needed to work on my task of talking to the elephant in the room as I searched for a way to tell my snow story and there he is. I have to believe my Family Blends and Friends when they tell me that I have a big bold imagination.
This is my Friday Friend and Follow-up post as I remember the Blue we wear for my Friends who are Surthrivers of Colorectal Cancer and I celebrate my third show where the theme was “Positioning Perspectives and Promises” I have enjoyed the many emails that have been generated because of my #Blogging101 and #Photo101 endeavors. I have a goal to complete this writing in 70 words and two pictures. Wellness, Wy
Sometimes I will go out into the garage and do some prayerlifting exercises. It is not that I cant find a spot in the house but in my garage I start my journey of the day asking the LORD to “Order My Steps.” I then walk outside and look up because I know where my help comes from daily . I look for the sun and the moon. This moment of solitude I saw the moon coming around the clouds and I knew there was a “Brighter Day Ahead” So I have covered several prompt from my #Blogging101 and #Photo101. #WWOW
I got a chance to explain the online radio Blogtalk Show,” Wy’s Ways of Wellness” to a Church group as a method to learn about The Church Health Center “Model for Healthy Living. Katrina Kimble, Community Outreach Coordinator presented to the group of PNBC Churches and I reminded them to listen to the program for more information. I had taken this picture and decided it would work for a Share a Prayer Process to healing on line style. Yes God Is! I am amazed as He reaches down to lift me into my purpose of teaching ministry and wellness through the telephone.
Today was a purple colored day! Why do you talk like we know what you are thinking? This is a question my children and husband ask frequently. Why do you not understand I expect miracles and having my Family Blends and Friends understand why I sing songs and shout about certain things. Today my daughter came by to see us with the words, I have not seen you in two weeks. She came with a purple scarf from her Carnival Cruise, with the words, “When I saw this it looked like something you would wear.” I smiled and ran to my closet to see what purple or red piece of clothing would work for me to wear with the scarf.
Today was one of my “well blessed” days! My daughter said “I know you are writing something about us.” Yes, I have enough material to fill a book and you all are the characters. As I move into my Midnight #prayerlifting zone, I say again to God, “Every time I turn around You are making a Way.” If you don’t know it by now , I love to read and repeat the story of the goodness and mercy of the Lord God and my Savior.
When I started Nursing School in 1967 and Seminary in 1995, I started to pour the disciplines of nursing and ministry into a bottle of medicine that I felt would help heal the hurts of selves, souls and spirits. I looked around and 48 years had passed so fleetingly. I have started to write for my wellness. Today I need sight, sound , smell, taste and touch to make a spirit call. I am looking for the signs and symptoms of beautiful skies to cure my “need to get out of the house and enjoy the first spring in 51 years without my GirlMicLeslie.
#WWOW: This has been a week where appointments have had to be canceled, Family Blends and Friends could do nothing but call to check on each other and then today there was the odor of gas in the air. I am writing, reading and doing rithmetic (paying bills) but I think I will call this a next day post and go somewhere and rest my head.
I have set a goal for a 99 word post so let me give you a quote from one of these books I am reading:
