“That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness.” (Colossians 1:10,11)
Colossians is the book in the Bible that shows how to live and be alive, to learn, to love to
laugh to cry and experience enough knowledge that will strengthen you…with all might! I have learned by what I have suffered. But Country Life is abounding with seasons…
Ecc 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
Ecc 3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
Ecc 3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
Ecc 3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
Ecc 3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
Ecc 3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
Ecc 3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
Ecc 3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Ecc 3:9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
Ecc 3:10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
Ecc 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
Ecc 3:12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
Ecc 3:13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
Ecc 3:14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
Ecc 3:15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
Ecc 3:16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
Ecc 3:17 I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
Ecc 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
Ecc 3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
Ecc 3:20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
Ecc 3:21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
Ecc 3:22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
When Ellen White wrote, Ezekiel 9 would be literally fulfilled….seeing that happen in our lifetime…Jesus walking on the Temple Mount disguised an angel…..will just make my heart pop out! Read Ezekil 9 and we’ll chat later
I would like to be there to see that happen! What a God, to pull this off, revealing his power to save to the utmost a sinner like me…who he welcomes to stand in His Presence….because of what He had done for me, by being the blood sacrifice, for my sins, including those of ignorance, which seems to be my specialty. Working with the Bible, and getting to know God, His sense of humor and ability to do anything makes me feel like a court jester? Why would he ask me to have a sense of humor? I think I need it…when it comes to men…who reject me as a “writer” and author of subjects so deep, and wide, that even men shudder to go where angels feet have trod! I have been rejected by the “best in their field,” around here we have a lot of men, standing in their corn fields, and I can do that too! Being me, and welcoming you into my world…sort of exposes me for the goof-up my family always thought I must measure up too…and that would be my dad. He picked up the name MOOLIE…from his time in India, working in labs, necessary for the hospitals behind the lines. Moolie was great man, a wise man, and he said, “Blessed is the man who goes around in circles for he shall be called, “A BIG WHEEL.” Moolie managed the Denver Post Pressroom, but when he walked through the door, Dorothy managed him and house! Moolie had a sign at the cabin nailed into a log, supporting a stuffed owl that said, “I am Captain of this Ship and I have my wife’s permission to say so.” Manford Ordelheide died with long bout of prostrate cancer, to his honor, nine men had their PSA tested, and they lived.
The secrets and words we never used before in mixed company, have made it possible for men and woman, to learn more about themselves and why somethings work in a marriage and why somethings are just quirks…of life, of seasons, of Gods hand moving us toward HIS REASONS, for creating you and I.
May our MISSION BE…not over until we teach each other HOW TO BE HIS DISCIPLES…learn a little, love a lot, be informed, be loved, be you…the creature, with the talents to be a teacher, a help, a friend, a cook, a wonderful friend I would like to have for my neighborhood! Kansas and Nebraska ain’t that bad for city kid to learn how to be a country kid. Life in the Midwest, ain’t nothing like the coasts…it slows down here…soes you get the wiff…of the sound of coyotes howling at night…and the smell of the cat with white stripes. Harvest can destroy the peace, until the grain gets a bit of its moisture out of the corn, then the elevators around, don’t have their machinery, grinding the air around the corn, get it dried out.
Educated folk get teased about their grammar by educated folk who like to hear a little slang and local twang of simple words, we not suppose to repeat…lol…cept for ain’t and Oh Shucks! MY LAND! comes in now and then! Pit Near, means your almost there. Sun Dogs you don’t find cept at the right time of the year when the Sun, hits the snow or ice, then reflects back to make one or two lights around the Sun…like dogs hanging around.
