This day....
Mood:  quizzical
Now Playing: Living...
Topic: Just Life!

I figured other than my regular postings to drop a note on a personal level...As I ready for bed I am very thankful to God for blessing me so much. I had enecountered problems with getting a call through to my convalescing Mother in the early morning, and in the mean time My Sister whom I had not talked to for a while called...we had a good chat.


Sis is ten years older than I am and has been an extra Mom to me...we talked of family and her grandkids, it was very informative...Sis was the main one who always told me I was smart, sharp and intuitive...she is a multi-talented lady who understands her Brother more than anyone else in the family I think..I learned to create by watching her paint as a child, and was a model for her in her art. My first modeling job! :)))  The pay was good...BurgerChef and going to see The Sound of Music. South Pacific, Oklahoma...


So after the call I was able to get through to my Mom and chat...I call her daily...I chat with her, but mainly listen, and give ear to her...and we pray, it means alot to her, and I know God hears us!


It was Mom who has been the example of a Godly Woman, and how we as five kids, Mom have us read Uncle Arthur Stories at the Kitchen table...those stories were stories that were true of the miraculous ways God answered prayers for people...especially Children! Those stories even seemed far fetched until I took God at His Word many years later and started seriously walking with Him....there are memories of instances of things we endured as a family that I would not take a fortune for because those were times where God used Mom as an example to us, and I am eternally thankful!.

When Dad died I was about 9 and Mom went back to school and got her Nursing that time there was only My Younger Brother and I, and I stepped it up as a big brother should. My Sis and Oldest Brother were off to war, and older Brother off to college. In light of being fatherless, we still had fun as we as a family, did paper routes and traveled..and lived well! Every Sunday am & pm in church and Wednesday for Prayer meetings....


So, referring back to the call with my Sister, she touched on something and it struck a chord with me as we chatted. We had discussed me being single :)) which has been the longest stretch of me being that way since I was a much younger man....and I spoke about what I would like in that area...and how I felt I was more clear about making right choices, I think what struck me was talking of being multi-faceted (My paraphrased term) and it led me to later think I have been praying was all about completeness which I realized needed to be for me..and vice versa.


So those that do visit these pages and read my postings, just know this is not the norm. I welcome Your prayers for me in this matter. I enjoyed the last few years being single for sure, and God only knows it may be quite a few more or even for good. But once again I seek some clarity from Him in this area and where to go from here in general...first and foremost to know Him more! I am tired and instead of risking my posting as something rambling I will close out for the night! Blessings! 

Mahalos In Christ,

Brother Timothy

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

The Bow!
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Noah's Song By Phil Keaggy
Topic: Just Life!

Tonight I caught a glimpse of a rarity I have seen on a two or three time at most in my life and I got a blessing in being able to snap pics of the Nightbow or Moonbow as I call them...they are rainbows at night and illuminated by the moon's light or reflection of the sun. Tonight is a full here I share....

As I posted the pics online I thought about the darkness and how the bow still shone in the darkness, as You can see the carlights blurred in this nightshot...It reminded me that even in the darkness Gods Promises show through, and they are comforting......

If You do not know about the bow Genesis 9 God gave the Bow to Noah and all of us as a reminder to us and Him, He will no longer destry the earth with a flood! It is a covenant!


Genesis 9:12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

17  And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.


Wow what a promise, and here on Maui I am reminded of that promise even at night!

I am posting a song by Phil Keaggy which has blessed me these many years called "Noah's Song"


Noah's Song

By Phil Keaggy

Lift up your wings and fly,

Fly away far across the sea,

And bring to me the sign

That we are blessed free.

See how the sun shines in,

Oh how I've missed the warmth of light,

And sing to me the song

That removes the night.


Rain, rain, You were pouring rain

I wonder, Lord, were they tears of pain

Yet You saved me, Oh I praise You,

Hallelujah, all Your words are true.

See the rainbow, all creation new.


Speak now, Your servant hears,

For in my heart Your promise lives.

It says to me, all life is from You a gift.

See how the sun shines in,

Oh how I've missed the warmth of light,

And sing to me the song

That removes the night.


Rain, rain, You were pouring rain

I wonder, Lord, were they tears of pain

Yet You saved me, Oh I praise You,

Hallelujah, all Your words are true.

See the rainbow, all creation new.

God and His Gift of Humor to Us!
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Tim Hawkins-Hand Raising and Sanitizer
Topic: Christians Can Have Fun!

I have always been one who had to fight not to poke at a sacred cow, I guess that is why Tim Hawkins has used humor in a Christian Sense to do so! I grew up seeing many different denominational structures in my formative years and learned a lot...

I am from a long line of ministers.(never aspired to be one).My Great Great Grandfather was a Primitive Baptist, as well as his son My Grandfather, My Uncle a Southern Baptist Pastor and I grew up in the Nazarene Church..I went to summer camps at Nazarene and Quaker Denominational Outings also and Summer camps at The Salvation Army Camp, went to YMCA when it was a Young Man's Christian Association, then I Pastored for a short time a Holiness Church though I am ordained through a Charismatic Church and also a Four Square off shoot church group..:)))))

 Many times I think I have seen it all. My Pastoral Mentor was wise in telling me to study all the greats of the faith, and the one thing I have drawn from it all is this: You either live the life "In Him" or You don't! He works with us, not against us...and I still hurt when I see sheep that are astray struggling to earn stripes with God, when He is there ever loving just wanting us to get our liturgies and works out of the way and just sit in His Presense and soak Him in!

Have You ever loved another so much that the blessed moments are just holding You in their arms and being silent...the beauty of the moment? It can be like that with Jesus, and all Your cares lift and encouragement and insight to problems come....

Now I will say I have been blessed going to Episcopalian Midnight Masses, Catholic Masses, Baptist Services as well as Full Gospel services...Why? Because God shows up! Now these words may disturb You, about a varied bunch of denominations..but just talk to Jesus about it ok! Remeber where there is "Love Shown" in a church, even in constructive corrective manners...there is God's Spirit!

Now I am all for freedom of worship, but I found Tim's explanation of hand raising so humorous I cried....enjoy:

At His Cross
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Personal Poetry!
Topic: Poetry
At His Cross!

I died that day nearly 2000 yrs ago
When the perfect one was nailed for me
He took every foolish thing I did
And provided strength for me
to weather the Storms caused by my sin
Showing His will, to begin again

Now I come to The Cross again
Asking strength to carry my own
Here I come to His Cross again
Where He reminds me the battle is won
Here I look upon His Cross again
Where my Lord died for my sin
Only to triumphantly rise again
Victorious over death and sin
Now From Heaven Pouring out
His Spirit upon us all

Rugged timber roughly hewn
A Blood stained testament
Of his love for me
At the foot of His cross
My eyes have seen
His everlasting Love for me
Pointing upward to His throne
Where one day I will bow my knee
To the King of all Eternity
His matchless beauty I will see
There I will joyfully cast my crown!

Maybe Just maybe,
I'm seeing something...
that's just not there,
Upon truth's realization,
It wouldn't seem fair,

Neither fairer, would it seem
than to miss something good
That I just did not see!
and the desires of my heart
would possibly never be....

so for now it's my prayer
to have the eyes to see
the truth of the matter
not what I want it to be

as I walk in His truth
and ever learning
to delight in His Ways
through pathways long and winding,
through the rugged terrain

I will see what is needed
and know what is required
with a cloud shading the sunlight
and my night lit by fire,
I will get there..........

in awe

It's been a long tough haul,
& most would have given up,
Lord You lifted me, restored me
in my times of dryness,
You have filled my cup,

In the newness of the moment
I am standing here in awe
Your everlasting kindness,
yes your precious mercy
in the wonder of it all,

for I did not earn Your blessing,
and nothing good
that anyman could see,
You looked upon this little one,
bound by his humanity,

You heard my cries of despiration
Your arms there, open wide
tattered rags for robes spotless white
Your grasp from the depths, lifting me                                    
breakthrough was not denied

In the newness of the moment
I am standing here in awe
Your everlasting kindness,
yes your precious mercy
in the wonder of it all,

Now Playing: Meanderings...In praise of God's gift of pets.
Topic: Just Life!

I normally should be asleep, as it has been a long day, but I realized I needed to make a Safeway run for some Almond milk and bread etc. Well You always end up buying more than what You went for but if You shop well it's worth it.

Today has been a reflective one for went well, and I picked up a couple of frames for later use...but since I paint therefore I frame :D When I came home for lunch Buster was laying there waiting on me..Sharp dog, he keeps better time than a watch does. :) Well there he was not wanting for the yard, but laying there just wanting me to rub him down. I must say I have learned so much about life and myself, from parenting him over the last 4.5 years since the day I first saw him . 

I was on the heels of a divorce and burned out from doing social work related abuse and neglect work. Hinging on depression and whittled down to near nothing in many ways... I was getting out of it to do something else as a sanity saver and was working out my notice. There was Buster at a day home, I was to pick a child up at...I commented on how handsome a puppy he was, and the owner hinted at getting rid of him. I gave her my card and said ( not believing she would) if she decided to part with him to call me.. She did the next day...Buster his leashes, collar, bowls, and wading pool which I could not fit in my car....

Buster had another name, which I felt did not I named him Buster. I got the name from the movie "A River Runs THrough It". One of my favorites..a crusty gal by the name of "Old Rawhide" said to Brad Pitt and his Brother "Buster here wants to fish" talking of her there You have it....I did not realize I was being Prophetic at the time, but if I ever got anything right it was naming him Buster, for a Buster he has been! :))

 I just loved him from the start, even when he would snatch the brahs and panties of the fellow lady tenants' off the clothes line and play with them...even when he would dig three foot deep holes in the yard with the Landlord scolding him, and even when he chewed up my cell phone and a pair of glasses. I was just glad he did not get hurt.

Now here years later I can still look at him with a glint of that puppy in his face, and slightly slower than at a year, but a little more settled than before...still the best watchdog, yet not as reactive to the passersby as when he was a pup. He's solid and healthy, and as I have said before his dedication to me demands of my dedication to him...

I have seen unconditional love in Buster, and I have been thankful that God has blessed me with him. I always said if I were to get serious and settle down again that Buster and I are a package deal! :))) No lie!

So my little blog posting today is just some meanderings about my dog, my best friend! 

Tonight when I came home from Safeway there I saw the dim light glinting off his eyes as I laid down his bedding for him, realizing how thankful I am for this responsibility..and he was just wanting me to rub him down...

I am thankful for a lot of things, and who am I to complain? It all could have been worse, but it has been very good! God has been very good to me, and has helped me make a lot of since of things I once questioned. So thanks for dropping by and letting me share, I hope You drop by again...or drop me an email! 

Blessings, In Him, Tim
