131

Well, awesome movie I just saw, A Winter Tale, a great movie and it mentions the Pleiades…. I will tell you about the God/devil filled movie about miracles later… and wow, it was moving beyond belief…. but I want to tell you about how it sent me looking up something about the Pleiades..and then how I came across this tale of the favorite constellation of the an Indian nation  near where some of my family grew up… . Their favorite constellation? you guessed it…. the Pleiades…..  and you know what? It’s a winter constellation, just like my winter window of God’s chosen time for my awakening…. and also winter is when vinedressers do the best pruning off the branches of the vine (according to a sermon I heard)…. hmmmm…. good God….

 

132 Music Therapy – Joni Mitchell – I Think I Understand, Apr

Another good song about Fear and Journeying – and as I was finishing an email about fear, of course a good song came on in the background – so fitting!!!

I posted the lyrics below – but Joni calls fear “stepping stones” or “sinking sand” – I just told someone else about sinking sand when you don’t trust in the Lord… so – yeah, i hope that we can all trust in the lord –  all our fear can be stepping stones to what is next and we can take time to prepare… and we can taste the sunlight… sigh…  life is for learning you know…  (youtube https://youtu.be/vnVeeUAWkSE)

I Think I Understand

by Joni Mitchell

Daylight falls upon the path
The forest falls behind
Today I am not prey to dark uncertainty
The shadow trembles in its wrath
I’ve robbed its blackness blind
And tasted sunlight as my fear came clear to me

I think I understand
Fear is like a wilderland
Stepping stones or sinking sand

Now the way leads to the hills
Above the steeple’s chime
Below me sleepy rooftops round the harbor
It’s there I’ll take my thirsty fill
Of friendship over wine
Forgetting fear but never disregarding her

Oh, I think I understand
Fear is like a wilderland
Stepping stones or sinking sand

Sometimes voices in the night
Will call me back again
Back along the pathway of a troubled mind
When forests rise to block the light
That keeps a traveler sane
I’ll challenge them with flashes from a brighter time

Oh, I think I understand
Fear is like a wilderland
Stepping stones and sinking sand

email to Pastor for recent sermon about Pondering, 26APR

Wow…. your pondering made such a powerfully wonderful sermon… I am only half thru and wow, I had to stop to say you hit EXACTLY my calling out about the green beans and I KNEW God would answer since I trusted God so much, and how faithful He was to me, I knew, I knew to trust 100%… And how did he reply? He moved a mountain twice with the author to read my emails and I pray she is pondering herself more about God, and wow he gave me both a visual comfort in the height differences between my beans and theirs, and he gave me fuel to share my faith at the meeting….  soul on fire is easy when God creates the spark…

Now about being STILL,  I have processed, pondered and praised so much not being still .. not even including my car time,  I am reminded that we are never still because the earth is moving.. if you watch a sunrise which I’ve done three times this year, or track the stars, it will blow you away at how amazingly fast the earth is moving and we don’t feel it… this is EXACTLY how amazingly fast God is working in our lives, even when we are ignorant or trying to not feel it. And so when we do feel God working, wow it’s fast!! Thanks
