Inside not out..

“The most beautiful thing in the world cannot be seen or even touched it must be felt with the heart”

St. Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians

Brethren, it is the God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, to show that the transcendent power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For while we live we are always being given up to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So death is at work in us, but life in you.

Since we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we too believe, and so we speak, knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.


You Can’t Take It With You

Being retired allows me the freedom to volunteer at our local Habitat Restore. The store depends on donations from the community which are resold at our store.  The money raised is used to build affordable housing for families who qualify. One of the things I have observed is that much of the donated furniture we […]

The greater a person’s fortune, the greater their responsibility to their fellow humans. Like the Pyramid, those with the greatest power can do the greatest good for the largest number of those below them.

Be gentle. Changes are happening. Let me guide you through the transitions. Don’t try to push with force against the natural shifts of life. I notice your hesitation but I ask you to trust me. This new direction is for your greatest good. Surrender control and have faith in what is to come.

What Archangel Uriel Has To Say

Archangel Uriel says that you’re a peacemaker… You have a strong intuition, and your greatest strength is your spirituality… Many people try and live life by making things happen through physical action. But your reliance on spirit accelerates your results compared to others. You win your wars and battles through gentle persuasion. You are able to conquer the hearts of many without having to lift a finger because of your magnetic charm. As you gain more knowledge in an area, people naturally look to you as a counselor. You pay great attention to detail, and you have world class observational skills. Your mind is very analytic at times, and you at professions that need that type of talent. Your intuition is extraordinary, you have the great ability to read people instantly and if you begin to develop your psychic abilities. They’ll become second nature to you very quickly. Common sense is one of your gifts, and shouldn’t be taken for granted, because not very many people can grasp this concept as well as you. You must use your wisdom to guide and help others when requested. Solving problems quickly is in your nature. You are a fast thinker and quick on your feet when you need to be. You are a powerful creator and you possess the hidden ability to move mountains in life, and accomplish tasks that many think of as impossible. But being great isn’t about being perfect. Being great is about recognizing your weaknesses and becoming better because of them…

You have a tendency to hold negativity inside you. And it’s difficult for you to simply let go of things, yet by keeping things in, it eats away at your energy. Sometimes leaving you diminished. Figuring out how to let things go will be a major turning point for you… Fears and phobias steal the majority of your focus at times, to the point where they consume all of your attention. Too much focus on your fears can give them enough momentum to where they come true. Lighten up more and try to tune yourself into reality and the light instead. At times you tend to be indecisive because you’re able to see the positives and the negatives equally in all things. This can create a lot of setbacks for you and stall your progression in life. By tuning into your intuition, you can break free from the mental fog of indecisiveness for good. There are also mental barriers within you that keep you from communicating with the outside world, this can result in your shyness. And by choosing to remain a shy person, you may block out many opportunities that are coming your way. If you choose to follow your life’s purpose, one day you’ll provide enormous inspiration to the world through conquering huge odds. Overall, you have much great potential that is awaiting to surface, and with the right guidance you can easily unleash the potential that has been within you since the day you were born…

You have a very strong duty on this Earth, and you were meant to work with Archangel Uriel very closely. Deep within your soul, something great is waiting to blossom within you. Once you fully connect with your Guardian Angel, you’ll discover what exactly is awaiting you. And discover a greater destiny that is ready to unfold. When you make this strong connection with Archangel Uriel, you’ll discover your life’s purpose, your natural talents, and your untapped abilities…

Jupiter in Roman Religion

Religion has always been a significant element of almost every society, modern or ancient. It explained everything, including the seasons, the rise of the sun in the morning and the moon at night. The gods protected people from their enemies, the forces of nature, and fought alongside them during times of war. The gods were ever-present in their folklore and temples were built to honor them. Sacrifices were made to win the gods’ blessing. Prior to the rise of the monotheism of the Judeo-Christians, most cultures worshipped a multitude of gods. There was a god of war, a god of the harvest, and even a goddess of fertility. The Roman Empire was no different.

To the early Romans religion and faith, especially during the early years of the Republic, offered reassurance and protection to the people. It was a major component in every aspect of life; few decisions were made without appealing to the gods. Roman religion, however, was not individualistic as Christianity, for example; it was communal. There was no holy text or creed; there was only the pax decorum or peace of the gods. Through rituals and prayer, the Romans curried favor with the gods and thereby evaded his or her wrath. And, while the Romans were often tolerant of the religion of those they conquered (often absorbing an occasional new god or two), they remained protective of the official state religion and were suspicious of anything that might undermine their power structure. This suspicion was the underlying cause of the persecution of both the Jews and Christians during the reigns of Nero and subsequent emperors. This protection would enable Jupiter and his fellow Olympians to survive from the Etruscans, through both the Republican and Imperial Eras, and up to the rise of Christianity.

Evening Prayer 4.2.21, Good Friday — The Daily Office

They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it with the spices in linen cloths, according to the burial custom of the Jews. (Andrea Mantegna, 1457) Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by? Look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow which was brought upon me, whom the Lord…
