A Few Days AFK (Away From Keyboard)


How is your week going?
You know we are coming up on Easter, or as some prefer Resurrection Sunday!
I have at least 2 posts I am very excited about along those themes.
Hopefully I will be able to start posting them early next week, so we can ponder the Resurrection together, and it means to us.
But, I just wanted to let you know that I will not be posting
(so far as I know) until Monday.
I need some time to be quiet after a few days of hearing my own "voice",
know what I mean?
I just want to listen for a bit.
My youngest is blessed to be going on a trip with his Youth Group from our Church,
to Atlanta.
Two Brothers that are friends of his are coming home from Church with us tonight.
I am coloring the oldest brother's hair, per his mother's and his request.
Then tomorrow morning they have to be at church at 6:00 a.m. to leave,
and they won't be back until Sunday evening.
I'm really grateful that he wants to go and that they all get to go.
Grateful for the opportunities that God graciously gives to draw near to Him,
with other believers.
And my Honey and me, well, we are going to go see about a new twist,
on an old hobby of his.
If it turns out interesting, I'll drop a line or two about it!
"For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us,
which was contrary to us,
and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
And having spoiled principalities and powers,
he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it"
Colossians 2:9-15

I understand. I've felt the need to pull back a little myself lately. That's why my award post went up late. And I've needed a little extra quiet time and time w/ my family. Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings!

What Does it Mean Anyway? "Free to Fly"...

Well, it's like this: Here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Free: a : having the legal and political rights of a citizen b : enjoying civil and political liberty c : enjoying political independence or freedom from outside domination d : enjoying personal freedom : not subject to the control or domination of another2 a : not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being : choosing or capable of choosing for itself...having a scope not restricted by qualification 7 a : not obstructed, restricted, or impeded ...Now, here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Fly:1 a : to move in or pass through the air with wings b : to move through the air or before the wind or through outer space c : to float, wave, or soar in the air ... a : to take flight ...6 : to work successfully ...Examples which apply from Websters: fly high : to be elated - fly in the face of or fly in the teeth of : to stand or act forthrightly or brazenly in defiance or contradiction of

What does this mean in my life? This means that in life we are meant to be free. While historically mankind has not always enjoyed the opportunity to fully appreciate what that means, we are so indescribably fortunate as to live in a time of the greatest spiritual, physical, financial and political freedom ever known. Freedom doesn't come cheap, nor does it come easy. But the best things in life don't come that way do they? As I write this I am struck by how this sounds like a political statement, and for me this is much more of a spiritual thing, but, same goes for that (political that is). Freedom doesn't come easy. And it's worth whatever fight you have to make to overcome in your life in order to live a life that succeeds. Now the questions is - what is success for you? What is your standard? In my mind what is needed is a definite target - because you can't hit and maintain a moving target. A stable, rock-solid, anchor with no variable, yet multi-faceted. Something pure, just and worthy. If you look at any web page of news you can see that our society is certainly lacking in this area. What a great time to live as a rebel! Nowadays to be a rebel, all you have to do is be willing to engage in the battle of life, while anchored to Christ!
