I was thinking on my way home that there is a big job that just got done. My Husband and I managed to put some furnture together today, and had to work back to front on everything, and at one point had to simply trust each other completely or drop!
For a long time I have had this impression there have been two universes running parallel to each other. One is a spiritual place, and the other completely temporal. Some kind of bridge just got re-established that lets them flux. Rather like the look of an hour glass with sand in it. This is how I also understand the Yin Yang symbol. Well at least my nails and hair might start growing again!
I was explaining to my Husband earlier that we may as well be putting the universe back together! The thing is that in order to understand how something works, most people want to dismantle it. Then they have a job putting it back again. I am thinking of that timepeice that is a Greenwich. I would have to look up the guy who was the genius watchmaker who made it. The idea of time was so that it operated as a time lapse, so that when a boat set sail, it could work out where it was more precicely, also so that shipping could rendezvous.
Then we got into the idea that time was a constant, and a commodity. Well I never agreed. It just never made sense. I actually smashed a few watches during my second Bi-polar episode. The first one was a Phillipe Patek I think. It took ages to smash it with a hammer, they are very well made. I have never had a posh watch since then! Besides I like the one I have, it's very functional. It has a bezel on the front, so I can do a bit of time elapse. It has the analogue face, and then a digital display for date day and time, an alarm, a stopwatch, and a very scruffy plastic velcro strap. I paid about £24 for it a few years ago!
My Husband bought me a very nice flat Rotary watch, a gold plated one some years after it seemed I had got over smashing watches, and this is a treasure to me. It just has a little black leather strap, so nothing flashy there either.
Still, a sense of time, is far more important than telling the time. It just comes down to it, when you do things in God's time, you tend to get things right, a lot more than you get them wrong.
Have a great day sorting out some good stuff, and if you are very oppressed by something, it's ok, we have an amazing capability to survive anything thrown at us when we trust God is right beside us.
It will all work out.
My heart was aching for all those people now finding their lives affected by the neutron bombs dropped by the Americans. They hurt their own troops too. What posesses people that they would use these kinds of weapons. Anyway I was having a mull over it and came up with this as a starting point for more research. Perhaps places where the ground is not contaminated can be used to grow crops of soy, wil they grow in Africa? The land only needs irrigating.
Try making this a fair trade initiative, as everybody needs each other right now.
We were given a huge bag of gorgeous Jerusalem Artichokes today, and another one of cooking apples.
I will make some more bread, as the fame of my pumpkin bread seems to be spreading. I cook off a pumpkin or butternut squash in the oven to caemelize it, scoop out the seeds and keep them to put on top of the bread. Then I mix a multigrain french flour with the pumpkin pulp enough to get it mixed. Then add double the amount of yeast normally used. I mix this in some warm water and some organic brown sugar. Then add it together and mix it, if it's too sloppy I put in more flour until it's the right consistancy, and let it stand for about 40 minutes in a warmed oven. Then I cut it into 4 x 1lb chunks and lightly knead it with lots more flour until it isn't sticky and pop it in the greased tins. After it has risen to the top of the tin, I pop it in the top ven, and whack the bottom oven on to 200c. Then it takes about 40 minutes to cook. I turn it down a bit in my oven after 15 minutes. It's a whole new bread experience! The stuff we buy in the shops just isn't bread!
