Giving of Thanks

Wow, it is November 2019. The time change added an additional hour to my 24 hours we call a day and I must say, it was a long day.

In the book of Joshua, it is written:

“As they fled before Israel along the descent from Beth-horon to Azekah, the LORD cast down on them large hailstones from the sky, and more of them were killed by the hailstones than by the swords of the Israelites. On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to the Israelites, Joshua spoke to the LORD in the presence of Israel: “O sun, stand still over Gibeon, O moon, over the Valley of Aijalon.” So the sun stood still and the moon stopped until the nation took vengeance upon its enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? “So the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.”

Now there is a long day!

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. This has become more of a commercial holiday in the USA as many gather for a Turkey dinner, full of sides and dessert made often from family recipes and handed down traditions of the family through the generations. There is Harvest Decorations, Horns of Plenty and all the colors of Autumn hanging everywhere. Some people use this day to go to the movies and take advantage of an empty theater before heading to get a dinner out instead of a family gathering around a home table.

Once, a large and very welcomed family tradition of gathering for thanks despite the ups and downs in life, it slowly has lost it’s meaning to give thanks for what bounty we have, for the provisions of food and family and friends and a whole lot more than we think about as we have so much, compared to most of the rest of the earth peopled. Today, sadly, this family gathering is replaced with technology and many have abandon giving thanks as the world seems to offer so many shiny objects that distract us which has lead us to become separated more and more from the one that provides, and from the family unit that is essential to our whole being.

Some months ago, there was an earthquake where I live. I wrote about it in an earlier blog. The services we take for granted were off or unavailable and instead of 10,000 channels and there is nothing on, we had 100,000 stars in the night sky to look at for many hours. We talked to our neighbors and found out though we were a long way from where we grew up, some where from our home town. Unknowingly, we were kindred souls from the same city. We had never known it, as we did not take the time.

We all made sure all around us were alright and we set in silence as we struggled to find things to do without the technology. We laughed, sadly, as we realized it took a shake to get us to step outside and talk with others. look at stars or miss our WiFi and the 10,000 channels of commercials we will never really watch.

When thanksgiving day comes, we might visit our family, but after we eat, we all sit around and we read a text, twitter or social media and rarely think to put down the devices and look and talk with the living breathing people in front of us and speak to them directly, tell a story, share an experience that can make a memory or two with our family and friends.

We should stop every day and give thanks. Yes, we are told hundreds of times to give thanks in God’s word. It is written, “be anxious for nothing, but in all things to come in prayer, supplications (our petitions) with Thanksgiving. Bring out every concern to GOD and the peace of God will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:6-7)

It is written: “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (1 Thes. 5:18) Sometimes it is hard to give thanks for all things, or all circumstances as some translations state. Sure it is easy to give thanks for a fat Turkey, 3 type of dressing and all that comes with most traditional Thanksgiving feast at the Grandparents house. It is not so easy to give thanks for no job, homelessness, for sickness and for depression and struggle; no family to eat dinner with and no dinner itself.

However the scripture is clear “in everything” that is at it states. Basically it is the word ALL. If you look up the meaning in the Greek, ALL means exactly the same in Greek as in American English, in Hebrew and in most languages in the word. ALL means ALL and that is ALL, ALL means. There is no other translation of it, ALL is fully inclusive.

When you can’t pay the bills, it is hard to give thanks, but you must. When there is a blessing of help when you must clean up your yard after a windy storm, you give thanks, though you might have a broken leg,  when help arrives with a smile from an unexpected friend you will be giving thanks, for the help and for the broken leg as the lack of the broken leg may not have brought the unexpected friend. Thanks should come even to the smallest and most insignificant items in your life. The big blessing are easy, but the tiny ones often seem to be overlooked, but they can be the most significant ones in your life and they should never be missed in being acknowledged in thankfulness. These are the times where GOD is doing more than you could ask or think.(Ephesians 3:20)

When I am creating my cross illuminated art frames, I give thanks for each one that I am able to complete without issue. They don’t always come to completion easily. I have had a few that took countless times of creation for the same one and it seemed it was not going to happen. However, despite the struggle, I eventually get it made, but there have been a few that giving thanks for came with a lot of struggle and in those while it was aggravating at times, these became some of my favorites.

While I am making the art frames, I often take a moment to give thanks that these crosses are a reminding symbol of where salvation began. I am thankful when I have found I have sinned somehow and have asked forgiveness for that sin. Though I know that Jesus Christ paid it already,  I want not only to ask forgiveness as this is obedience, but also it is a reminder of thanks for a gift that is called an indescribable gift at the end of 2 Corinthians chapter 9.

I pray each person that comes and reviews this blog and my artwork understands the gift of Salvation. No matter who, what, where, when or how you or your life has been, you can be saved.

Free, Free, Free, Really !!

Seems in 2019 the use of “Free” is making a come back. Of all the things you could use the word Free in association with is doing your Federal Taxes in the USA, with “free, free, free”. There is currently one commercial on media channels which Free, Free, Free is being touted.

In light of starting 2019, it might be of low importance though since the USA Government has been on hold to financially function until some political issues are resolved. Again as in a previous blog post, I think again of Isaiah 9:6 and the government shall be upon his shoulders. But I digress, back to free.

So what is Free, what is the origin of Free as a word? In etymology, one of the meanings of free is, “Sense of given without cost.” in some uses or languages or time of centuries past it was associated with a woman and the Love that a relationship could lead into.  The word Free itself is in other terms of etymology as an adjective, which could be stated “word used to qualify, limit, or define a noun or noun-like part of speech”, seems odd that Free would be associated with the word that means to “qualify, limit or define” another word. So Free in itself supports some other word and is not a stand-alone word, but supports more than just FREE! A “Free Gift”, for instance, would put this into perspective.

The reality on earth is, there is nothing for free. Somebody, some entity, has to pay for it. As my husband has stated, “nothing is for free, somebody somewhere had to pay for it.” This even applies to our Holy Father in heaven above. While in Romans 5:8 it states this is a free gift, it still took the life in the flesh of GOD as Jesus Christ to pay for our sins to make a way for our salvation and that was a cost which goes above and beyond anything that compares with anything we as people in any capacity are capable of giving. I don’t mean to say that a soldier or a hero who went into a situation to fight for others to have life, liberty or freedom, to sacrifice themselves for others are not giving of themselves freely, but each of their sacrifices took from those in their lives, parents, brother’s, sister’s, family, friends, futures and all for others. Even Jesus Christ himself stated there was no better sacrifice than when a friend lays down his life for another, but that death other than for the Glorification of GOD still ends up costing the others that were a part of their lives.

Free on earth does not mean without obligations or strings. If you get something for free, the value of it can be taxed so you may have to shell out some money for the free thing. You might have to participate in a survey or try something for a time before free is given. Rarely, if ever, is anything completely free created by human beings on this earth.

Salvation is freely given, there is no obligation to accept it, but the gift is beyond compare and you will not get taxed, get a bill, there will be no collection after time because you don’t have the ability to pay and there are no long qualification steps to receive it. It is given already. There was the resurrection, but there is no repossession of your salvation once received. Christ was more than enough, so we don’t need to pray to GOD that Jesus needs to be nailed back on the cross because it did not cover your sins payment!

When historians changed from B.C. to A.D., salvation was available and it is something that could not be given until Jesus Christ died on the cross for us all and was resurrected. If you want humility, think of what GOD has given; Adam walked in the cool of the day with GOD. Even he, his first creation, did not receive the gift of Salvation as we have been offered. Adam’s sins were paid for, so Adam has that even though he died in the flesh before Jesus came and did so for us all. So we who have lived the past 2000 + years have the free gift of Salvation if we will accept it. It has no borders, it can be accepted 24 hours a day, 365.25 days per year and in any language, in any time zone and it can be received alone or in a group, on the mountain top or in a hole in the ground. (“There are no Atheists in a Fox Holes”)

“The same is true with God’s gift of salvation. To us it’s free, but it cost God the life of His Son. The reason is that on the cross Jesus Christ became the final sacrifice for our sins. He paid for our salvation with His blood.”

So when you see the word FREE, know that even the Creator of all there was and is and ever will be, could not give a free gift, without a cost, but don’t let what it cost go and not be received; “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8.

I pray each person that comes and reviews this blog and my artwork understands the gift of Salvation. No matter who, what, where, when or how you or your life has been, you can be saved.

Under the Tree

Soon the Celebration of the greatest gift ever given past, present or forever will come upon us. However, many will be focused on the best deal in the the art of the  super sale, how many packages are under the tree or how many times the delivery truck has brought that box with a smile or the one that you “wish” had 3 more coming for free.

Some will decorate the door with a wreath., Some will get a fresh tree and fill the house, with the smell of pine, drape it with shiny objects and with the invention of those LED lights and all the amazing animations they can perform to dazzle our minds in the glitter.. that tree will twinkle. The familiar music we hum from old and the new are strangely familiar.

There will be visits from people Aunt Joyce or Uncle Jack or Grandma, Grandpa, Nanna, Omba. Pappy, Papa and so forth. (You know the one you use, don;t deny it!!)

We will figure out how to take that Turkey or that Ham or whatever is your tradition and make is the best meal ever, to garner the accolades from our stuffed Loved ones. family or friend to make it all worth the effort.

Then while in the past generations would tell stories around the table or the sitting room, patio or a cozy fireplace, we will succumb to this being replaced with the “lets all sit around with our electronic devices surf and text while basically not talking to those we rarely see right there before us.” moments. we will make small talk with those that give some attention, though we might struggle for their name, because we are staring at that $300 purse they got from Uncle Joey, who is missing this year!!

This is what Christmas seems to be and it is a long departure from the days where we all sat around as a family in the morning, with Grandpa or Dad or the assigned eldest child opening the family Bible and turn to Luke 2 and read the story of the reason for the season, not Happy Holidays, but MERRY CHRISTMAS ! The birth of the greatest gift.

On that day of the greatest gift arrival, the lights were a bright star, the music was the sounds of the Angels rejoicing before the Shepherds tending their flocks and the gifts were not greater than he who gave us the indescribable gift.

There are two explanations of the Christmas story I love, one is when Linus of the Peanuts cartoon recites in “A Charlie Brown Christmas“, a classic and meaningful story that helps us understand the real meaning of Christmas. I thank Charles Schultz the creator for putting the meaning of Christmas where is would go on share the meaning for generations to come. The other is a video put out by Steelehouse Media, which is cute and humorous in how a child views what Christmas means.

Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree still can be found as a gift for those that want the nostalgia feeling added to the plenteous decorations they already collected. An less and less these days there is the missing symbol of the one tree that stands above all the others as it was once decorated with the gift we received over 2000 years ago born to Mary and Joseph in the town of Bethlehem and wrapped in swaddling clothes, visited by wise men from the East and Shepherds who were out tending their sheep that night.

There is a passage that sticks out these days as I have aged, Isaiah 9:6-7. All I can say is that he has some sturdy shoulders and if he can carry that much on his shoulders then we should have no doubts he is able to also carry us on his shoulders as well.

I would ask each one that reads this Blog share it with each person you know and ask them to please read the Christmas story for yourself found in Luke 2: 1:-21, to others, to the generations that shall come and to the generations that are looking for shoulders strong enough for their lives, and all peoples, when with sin he hung on the tree for us all. Let all the world stop and look at the gift we have been given so that we would have eternal life if we will take the PRESENT and RECEIVE HIM, Jesus Christ so that the Present turns into the Gift of Love that GOD has given, as GOD is Love and He demonstrates His Love in that while we were still sinners He sent his Son…

This site was created as a site for giving. I would ask you to please Give and help me continue to Give by entering the drawing for a Art Frame which features the Tree of the Cross of Calvary there is no cost.  Please Give to our favorite places to donate and that we are a part of like Give Hope Ministries.org, Silent Voices.org who are both good non-profits doing wonderful things for others that are in need and a financial gift is very much a life changer. We personally know the founders and GOD multiplies anything given to these non-profits. We have seen it first hand. These are tax deductible non-profits as well in good standing.

I pray each person that comes and reviews this artwork understands the gift of Salvation. No matter who, what, where, when or how you or your life has been, you can be saved.

The Gospel message is simple and very transforming to your life. Just start and let the Love of Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit carry you to the gift of Salvation.

Glow

Oh my Lord, we are in the heat of the summer in the Northern Hemisphere where the days are bright and hot depending on where you are blessed to reside. Here in the Southern California desert, it exceeds 100 degrees F daily from May through mid September and it is so hot that every object seems to Glow with the appearance of waves of air flowing up and out.

If you ever heard the phrase “so hot you could fry an egg” well you can fry an egg on a car body in this desert heat. Yes that is the truth, as long as you are not in a hurry, but it will cook. Other items that have additional features in the heat are those car window sun shades. Sure they work well to keep the sun off the dash or interior, but it is so hot you need to also have a kitchen pot holder to grab it off the window as temperatures in a car can get over 150 degrees F.

Even the asphalt gets so hot that if you are wearing rubber soled shoes, they will soften and wear swiftly, signs are posted to remind you of the asphalt for animals.

The Bible talks about a heat that is unbearable even more than the hottest day in the desert sun. If you ever watch a video on the solar power collectors in the Nevada/California border area, it is so hot, birds that fly near it burst from the focused intense heat.

In the Bible, there are two sources of heat that are not the place for eternity for anyone, Hell (Sheol) and The Lake of Fire.  These are more agonizing a torment and is forever. In the book of Luke Chapter 16:19-21, the rich man who did not have compassion on Lazarus at the gate daily found himself in Hell and asked if Lazarus who was in heaven could bring him one drop of water on his tongue. He also begged that someone should go to his family and tell them how not to come to this place and suffer with the unquenching thirst.

In the book of John 4:1-26, Jesus offers a Samaritan woman at the well as the living water that will forever quench your thirst, for you will never thirst again Jesus stated. This water will keep you out of the heat of Hell and The Lake of Fire.

The Cross of Calvary’s Glows with the radiance of our Salvation journey begins. It is the place the living water of Christ Jesus was poured out and the promise of a way to quench the soul for a better eternity through Christ Jesus who is the Glow of everlasting life and deliverance from the heat of the everlasting torment.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ sets us free. It is the single most significant event that makes what GOD offered in his only begotten son, that sets him apart from any other man made promise of Salvation. For no other false GOD has given so that what he created can live and walk with him in the cool of the day and not suffer the torment of the unending heat.

I know like so many I did not like to hear or eagerly discuss the path to Hell or Sheol as in the old testament or the reality of the Lake of Fire, the last place of torment after the great white throne judgment as stated in the Revelation 20:11-15. But we must. This is not a fantasy, it is a reality and the choice to accept grows shorter every moment we live.

When it is dark in our lives, the cross Glows with Christ Jesus when you accept his offering of Salvation. The noon day sun be bright and the sun shining at an angle as to cast little to no shadows, but only the Glow of Christ Jesus in the heart of a believer can create a Glow greater than any sun that GOD hung in the heavens and has not shadow.

If you set the world away from your life for moment and focus on the Cross and what it means, your life will be transformed. It all starts at the Cross, where Christ Jesus, paid it all for us all. Should you not consider to bask in the Glow of Jesus Christ?

Standing or Kneeling

There is a wonderful wall image in my room that states “Prayer, when you can no longer stand life, then kneel”

When the storm is raging in every aspect of our day, we need to pray. When everything is going so well and we have no apparent needs at the moment, we need to pray. When we observe Jesus Christ in the Gospels, we see over and over he is slipped off alone to pray.

Scripture tells us in many places in the New Testament to Pray and not give up, Luke 18:1;  Pray without ceasing, 1 Thes. 5:16-18; Be Anxious for nothing, in everything in Prayer, Supplication with Thanksgiving bring your every concern before GOD. Philippians 4:6

When we think of Jesus praying we assume most of the time he is on his knees in prayer and maybe he is and maybe his is standing. However in his time of great distress, when in the Garden of Gethsemane praying, he is on his knees and under so much stress that it states his sweat was a drops of blood.(Matthew 26:36-46) The moment is coming where he can no longer stand and becomes the illumination for our Salvation. He is going to the Cross for our sins and he is willing to let our sin nail him to it so that we may live eternal life and have a way out of the Storms of our life.

In the Gospel of John, in Chapter 17, Jesus prays for us. He is about to go and suffer probably more than any of us could suffer and he will also take the full weight of sin upon himself. He will take on something he himself has never known.

The agony becomes so real when he utters, “My GOD, my GOD why have you forsaken me?” Everywhere else when Jesus speaks about or to GOD himself, he speaks stating his  Father. But in the moment when he, Jesus, has taken all the sin upon himself, then he finds that he can no longer feel the presence of Love of the Father on him for GOD is to Holy for sin to be in his presence, even if that sin is on his son and therefore Jesus knows what we know but don’t realize, with sin we are separated from GOD.

There is a wonderful and very touching video that was edited from a foreign film to create an allegory of GOD the Father and the Love for us that his son is ultimately sacrificed to give himself to save us all. I highly recommend this video, take the time to watch it with full attention to everything in the movie. Watch the details as the story unfolds, but watch it with Jesus Christ and GOD the Father and the gift of Jesus Christ on the Cross fully in your heart.

Think about that moment when Jesus uttered, it is done and breath his last and give up the Spirit. Think of the moments between that last breath and the moment he was resurrected to show that he could overcome sin and overcome death, for us.

When you are done, see if in truth you can understand that even if out of the estimated 14 Billion souls that have ever lived on this earth, God would have sent his son if only one of us could be saved.

There is a Hymn that is taken from the word of GOD. The lyrics and music were written by Stuart Townend:

How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He would give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasureHow great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One
Bring many sons to gloryBehold the Man upon a cross
My guilt upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no powr’s, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

It was once spoken in a message from a missionary that visited a local church and the man made the statement the Bible is a Love Story, except the opening verse. Since hearing this statement, I keep this in mind when I study it, looking at that Love story and realizing there can be no greater Love than GOD, who is Love. (1 John 4:8)

So give thanks, pray for your needs, pray for others, pray for the situations you see in this world and give thanks for all things, even the ones that you may not feel are something gratitude should support. When you can’t stand your life, then kneel before GOD asking in Jesus Christ name, for he is the one that went to the Cross for us all, overcame sin and death for us all, marking it paid in full and take in your heart him who still is the truth, the way and the life and made a way for us all to receive the gift of eternal life.
