M. Conger says he wants to try too! We can all learn to fly like flying fish, only these are helicopter fish, and they are learning vertical take off and landing. (Perhaps He is an Oar fish).
I bought four white climbing roses for my garden a couple of years ago. One is doing OK, the other two not so well because they don't get enough sun. I dug one up and took it to the garden dump, as it just seemed so diseased.
The dog is a digger and digs up my plants. I have one in a corner where it is just surviving. It is fenced off from her, but I know it won't grow well there. I just caught her trying to dig under the little fence I put round it to keep her away from it. I told her off, and now she is sulking in her chair.
She also destroyed all the parsley that was growing around the base of my palm tree. She won't change. I had to take all the white tulip bulbs out of the garden last year because she was digging those up and actually ate one. Another expensive checkup at the vet to see if her bloods were OK, or she had poisoned herself.
I have just decided to move these two white roses completely. I will put one outside my front door, and the other one on the other side of the garden gate. There it will flourish as it will get the sun, and hopefully be beautiful climbing up the fence and over my archway to the garden as I hoped it would.
(I did replant the two roses over the little front door porch to my House. I also took cuttings, and all are shooting, so plenty of hope for roses in future, I tried the rooting in potato method!).
There is a problem with this as it is Parish land, and they don't want flowers or bees and butterfly mix grown along my fence to make it look pretty for walkers passing by. They just want to be able to mow and strip it easily. I can understand their point of view, but I would love to make it pretty.
I am thinking I could use a large container for my rose. I have one. So If I am told to move it again I can just put it somewhere else.
I am am going to see if I can rescue and re-plant those little parsley plants before it gets too dark.
I just can't help thinking of how this is an analogy to the Israel-Palestine situation right now.
If President Trump can build a big beautiful wall to keep the Mexicans out, and any desperate to escape Americans in, then a proper wall built on the agreed boundaries might be a good start for this ridiculous situation.
All those settlements the Israelis have already built in the formally agreed Palestinian, lands should belong to the Palestinians. (Unless the Palestinians actually want to renegotiate their boundries). I think the Palestinians have been badly treated by everyone in this situation, especially if they had their homes bulldozed and no formal agreement of sale for the homes or land.
Bulldozer? I think God might be so hopping mad with his chosen people he will send in a wrecking ball of his own to give them a shake up. It might remind them in who's name they are behaving badly.
The first thing is to get the water and power back on for the Palestinians, it's going to freeze soon.
I began to get vey worried before Christmas about that ice sheet in Antarctica shearing off. I was worried because it would slow down or stop the Atlantic gyre. Also that I have lovingly with Gods help planted and grown Five large olive trees in my garden.
I felt God wanted me to buy these sick and choked up Olive trees, and learn how to get them better, so we can grow our own Olives. I was horrified and have chatted to God a lot about climate change, and then asked him how my trees will survive such harsh winters if the world where I live became so cold in winter.
My Olive trees are doing fine and in faith I have not covered them, nor mulched them up with garedening fleece, as it is costly, and the trees should be fine down to minus 10 degrees without protection. Below that I think I would lose them.
strangely I have self seeded parsley a lovely herb to have in winter self seeded coming up. They did catch a frost some mornings but soon perk up during the day. I used some last night.
I have been watching the weather patterns, they are amazing to say the least.
I asked God, in the name of Jesus to protect us from harsh weather. I have also asked God in the name of Jesus to rejoin that deep rift in the ice in Antarctica, re-freeze the Arctic, and sort out that permafrost. I thought melting permafrost would release a lot of greenhouse gas.
I want us all to survive. I want us all to value one another and be good neighbours to each other.
I want all of Gods Creation, and his Creative Process to be honoured and valued.
This is my prayer for me, and for you if you are reading.
May you be truly blessed in the knowledge and power of God,
And come to know a personal relationship with God, through the loving sacrifice that Jesus made, so we could come to our Heavenly Father as co-heirs with Jesus Christ.
May you also be filled with the Spirit of the Living God, Who revealed himself through Jesus and The Prophets, so that you are equipped to live a life that is full of praise and wonderment each day.
For the mighty and wonderful work he does in this world, and in each and every one of us who chooses to follow a path of peace for his names sake.
May you be blessed richly in love and reassurance of His wonderful plan.
I grapple a lot with Paul, as I am sure the Sanhedren and the early Church did. I just felt there was some kind of cover up. Untill I was reminded this morning of Acts 16 v6-7. The 'Spirit of Christ' would not allow Paul to go into Bithinya, and the 'Spirit of Jesus' would not let them pass. Also that in Paul's Second Letter to Timothy v16 -17, Paul says that all scripture is God Breathed.
For some reason I wanted to look at what Reb Jeff might have written, and made reference to His Essay, on 'the Teblow effect', which I hadn't heard of before 'loading up' here to confess that I too deserted Paul.
It makes sense to me anyway. I fell for a conspiracy theory too! Shame on me.
I just thought Paul was 'on his own mission'! He whinged a lot, and complained of the 'thorn in his flesh'. This 'thorn' is our own human weakness. Our 'blind spot'. The one thankfully we don't get to see that often because it's obscured by our own 'pride and predjudice'. I must read more other stuff!
I did think I might read Dante's Inferno over Christmas, but as I am subject to 'going off on one' at the moment, and taking fairly large doses of mood stabilisers, I don't want an antidote sample of going down the tubes! The couple of cups of coffee I just drank seems to do the trick quite nicely! Yup I cheat badly, and I am only cheating myself by doing it... I am sure there will be some retribution from the psychiatrist when I next get hauled up for being too 'high on caffeine, and fags'. Still I like being Human!
I just drew a 'god particle'. I had some of the gold paint left from doing that icon, and sort of realised that it was all hidden in the 'gold paint'. I just allowed the different brush strokes to define a round 'halo effect' within a layered gold background. Works for me, because you can't actually 'see' God and live.
On that basis we probably blew up the whole 'manifesto' by trying to get to see one. I think the 'Spirit of Christ' did exactly the same thing, and stopped science from doing it. If you are a strict scientist or belive that the order of creation does not allow for it's own destruction, I guess this too holds up.
The closest thing I can imagine is The;hidden,within the 'Hidden'.
Yea, right, so much for the tale of that (Higgs Bosun Particle Tail), and Moses having the 'cheek' to ask to 'See God' Face to face. Does anyone ever actually read the scripture enough to understand that something representational of 'The God Partical' can't be seen in our little 'Fold' of 'God's Mantle'. Humanity already exists 'Within;('The mantle of God')'.
It might bounce off the walls of our own little cosmos, and nip in and out of 'oblivion' now and again, just to keep us happy, and asking more questions. I like God, He has a great sense of Humour. It's all folly,
Guess I ought to find out how this works...
