Thinking and pondering and singing!

I have not been sharing too much as of late (as a brother blogger has suggested to me as recently as today :) It gets tiresome - blogging and facebooking and twittering and all of it, you know. Is anybody out there listening? I am reading though, and sometimes a gem comes through as I read and I think "leave it to the Quakers to speak through Paul Anderson Walsh to me this morning". I remind myself this blog and all communication from me stems from Abba, my Father and through Him and in Him and through me (as insignificant as I feel and as significant as I am to Him...), I remember I am totally enjoying rest in Him at times as I also am sharing Words of Life from Him at other times.

Sharing this from Paul from his posting on Facebook.

"Our Life is Love, and Peace and Tenderness; and bearing one with another, and forgiving one another, and not laying accusations against one another; but praying for one another, and helping one another with a tender hand." (edited by me). ("Yes, if only, Father", I respond).

I checked out the Quakers, I am not sure they would like this term but I did. I came up with this quote. I like it. I don't love it but I like it. I think I could be a Quaker. Silence is nothing short of Heavenly at times. :)

"The Life that intends to be wholly obedient, wholly submissive, wholly listening, is astonishing in its completeness. Its joys are ravishing, it peace profound, its humility the deepest, its power world-shaking, its love enveloping, its simplicity that of a trusting child."

Thomas R. Kelly

I am here! Alive, fully in Him and at times just listening :)

Sometimes, words, video's, singing or dancing fall short of expression. Silence sometimes in the forest is a great place to connect with god. We are significant and a masterpiece of Him. One only needs to look at His creation. I mean really look, with no agenda, on His terms.

Vanessa, I've noticed that our little corner of the blogging world has been very quiet lately. Lydia also noticed it and did a post about it recently.

I love reading everyone's blogs so I'm pulling back for Facebook so I can spend more time catching up with our blogging community on their blogs.

Sometimes blogging is easy and sometimes its not but I'm encouraged when someone posts a comment regarding something I've written so thanks for stopping by and posting a comment on my blog.
