His Light, My Basketcase, 30APR

I feel like a basketcase sometimes – ineffective – stuck – but I’m not, I’m not…. so, whenever it comes to loving the Lord, He doesn’t want me to be a basketcase or to hide my light from Him under a basket – it’s His LOVE – HIS LIGHT that we are to shine. But, I always wonder about having enough time to shine…

These were blogs from one year ago on my mind…. I already was filled with thoughtful thoughts about my 50th birthday coming up this fall, wow.  I rethought about this writing from last year while wearing my David Bowie (RIP) T-shirt yesterday, and seeing that it is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and of Woodstock… unlike the news of them cancelling of the reuinion concert,  I pray God doesn’t cancel my future quite yet. As nervous as i can be about the future,  my JOY of continuing to “run the race” is greater… 50 years is a blessing… 5 more years, months, minutes would never be enough time to tell the Lord how much I love Him.

(I will attach a second blog, the next link, an important follow up to the 5 years blog)…

All in All, I thank God for all His time…

Yup, I  need to stop my basketcase moments, burn the basket and pray the Holy Spirit to move me… safely…

5 years, 5 minutes, 27Apr2018

My favorite Bowie song – “5 years” – David screams it – I do too…

He sings about only five years left for the Earth… how urgent!… “oh my brain hurts a lot”, he screams!

“We’ve got five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
We’ve got five years, that’s all we’ve got”

I do think about life and death, especially with my long commute, I think about the time we have here, on this Earth… and I think about what Heaven is like…

I wonder looking at the clouds when things will end. I should…

I wonder how “to cram so many things” into such a short time… I should…

I wonder how to rest enough… I should…

I should keep moving. I should keep moving… I should…

What would you do with only 5 years left in life? 5 years? 5 months? 5 days? 5 minutes?

Would we start by thanking the Lord?

WOULD we say: “I LOVE YOU LORD!” constantly?

5 years, 5 minutes? Would I ask for the Lord’s mercy? I should…

5 years? Oh what could I accomplish in 5 years? How many lives could I help? How many times could I tell my kids, my parents that I love them? Tell them constantly? I should…

5 months? Would I take time for myself alone? or would I fill it with every person I could visit as fast as I could? How many hugs could I gather and give in that time? Should I SMILE? I should…

5 days?  Would I go back to finish the unfinished?

Finish that sewing pile? No!

How about finishing that stolen kiss? Maybe!

Would I “Finish the race”? Yes! I would finish the race… I should…

5 anything? Would I even tell the people I would be gone? Would I want to burden them? Or inspire them? I should INSPIRE… I should…

5 minutes? How many times would I call out to the Lord? How many times could I question Him? How many times could I thank Him? How many times would I cry: “Why?” How many minutes would it take me to STOP my questioning? How many minutes would it take me to start listening? I should…

How long before the ONLY thing I say is:

“I love You, Lord”

I should…

I would…

I will…

How long before I LISTEN for the Lord?

5 years, 5 minutes?

Focus on loving the Lord?

Focus on loving everything He does and made?

I should…

I love to question “WHY?” – I do…

I love that the ONLY answer He ever gives me is:

“Because I LOVE you!”

I should use every moment to BELIEVE that…

“Because I LOVE you!”

For every moment we live is in His Love, of His Love, and with His Love.

Because of Him we LIVE to LOVE

We should…

Amen
