Life (Acoustic Song, Sarah Jarosz)

Post Holiday Greeting Grafted In Readers,

Do you feel like you are in the middle of two holidays?

You are.

Currently, Hanukkah is ongoing.

Christmas occurred on December 24 and 25 in the west.

New Years Eve and New Years Day occur over the weekend in the west.

The eighth day of Hanukkah is very early next week also.

We probably find ourselves reflecting, thinking, wanting to nap, wondering can we return to normal, wanting to live on the wild side, be done with words, be done with events, just read a book, view a movie or television program, have this moment and what it contains pass.

Whatever the annoyance and our perceived quick fix I found a quote by writer Monica Johnson, on that I like. It fits her and all of us:

Regret is not a proactive feeling. It is situated in disappointment, sorrow, even remorse. It merely wishes things were different without an act to cause a difference. However, repentance is different. Repentance is an admission of, hatred of, and turning away from sin before God.
Monica Johnson

Thanks Monica. As you and I get ready for 2017, let's just ask Adonai to come alongside us and enter 2017 with us. Help us reshape those areas where we stumble and trip numerous times, improve our choices, correct our blind-spots, and help us use our strengths to aid someone else where they are coming up short. Perhaps this can be the year to begin a rebuilding of the human condition rather than a microscopic examination and ongoing critique of it. Perhaps we can try rebuilding each other and say, Go, your faith will make you whole!

In the coming months, a Forgiveness Anthology will help people with the art of forgiving.

Waiting For Messiah will be another anthology to aid us in relying on someone bigger than ourselves, Yeshua the Jewish Messiah not a Lutheran, Methodist, Catholic, Church of Christ, but a Jewish Messiah who comes to seek and save that which is lost, you and me!

I hope you might be involved in praying for these projects and perhaps in sharing them with friends and acquaintances when they become available.

Kevod Yeheveh, His Peace Restore the wasted moments of our lives.
