|gentle touch on the hand or shoulder |
and follow with a quiet,” love you” for
young or old it is the greatest gift. Love
is touch, God cannot touch your hand but
when you open yourself to Him,
He will touch your heart and fill
it with love and bring total peace
to you. Share with others, even
strangers, a quiet smile or hello
or an deliver an unexpected gift.
Would anyone argue
that the world would
be a better place?

| I have not come to destroy, but to fulfill. |
For verily I say unto you; Till heaven and earth pass,
one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass form the law, till all be fulfilled.
it to be so now;
for thus it becomes us
to fulfill all righteousness.
– Matthew 3:15
| Consider the words of C.S. Lewis:|
“If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and to earnestly hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I suggest that this notion has crept
in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We
are half creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition, when infinite joy
is offered us, like the child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because
he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday; we’re too easily pleased.”
|There is never a time when a man cannot turn repentant to Me and, |
craving My pardon, receive it. But there is a time when I cease to be
in urging My follower to an action. The human ear can hear a sound
so often it ceases to convey it’s meaning, to be heard with awareness.
So with the spirit-ear, unless the whole desire of effort is to carry out
My plan, My servant may cease to hear, cease to be aware of My wish.
This is a grave spiritual danger, and I say unto you, guard against that. Now unto Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy.
To the only God our Savior,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
glory, majesty, dominion and authority,
before all time, now and forever. Amen.

Upon this I founded My three years’ Mission on earth; on the acceptance of the difficulty and discipline of life so as to share that human life with My followers in all the ages.
Much that you must accept in life is not to be accepted it being necessary for you, personally, but accepted, I accepted it, to set an example, to share in the sufferings, difficulties of mankind.
In this “to share” means “to save.” And there, too, for you both; the same must be true as was so true of Me.
“He saved others; Himself He cannot save.”
Beloved, you are called to save and share in a very special way. The way of sorrows if walked with Me, a Man of Sorrows, path kept sacred and secret for My nearest and dearest, those, whose one desire is to do all for Me, to sacrifice all for Me, to count, My servant Paul did…, “all things but loss so that they might gain Me.”
But, dreary as that Path must look to those who view if only from afar, it has tender lights, restful shades… no other walk in life can give.
