The Angel of Main Street

Jim brought us the newest sweetest addition to our building. He called me at the end of the day wondering when I was to be finished for the day. Through a ton of wind through the phone I knew he was outside. Asked me to go out to the front and look up and when I did I must admit I cried. The Angel is so beautiful. He is constantly blessing Main Street day and night. We love him more and more every day. Thank you sweetheart for this wonderful thoughtful addition.

Go with the flow...

Go with the flow. Such well known words. Seems like I hear those words too late. Just when I am in the middle of a fuss or things are not going like I had planned or for some reason I have decided that I am going to fight the world then I realize that early on I could have chosen to go with the flow. When I consider water and how it moves and ebbs and sometimes rushes there is very little that anyone can do about it. When water is flowing everyone has to respond. If there is a flood then one must evacuate or if it is in your home then seems like forever cleaning it up. But water doesn't have weapons as it doesn't need any. It just goes. And when something stops its direction it merely finds another or goes over. There isn't a war of which is stronger. Water just is. I want to be like water. Easy, moving, alive and never afraid of what is in the way. Just flow through or around. Don't freeze in fear or agenda but seeing everything as a possibility and opportunity rather than a hastle or battle. Refreshing and nourishing, a giver of life and greatly desired.

Happy Easter. Yes! What a victorious time. I love that Jesus was such an example to me even in death because He represents the victory even over death. So, when death happens I remember that even though I do not see the victory there is definately one stupendous victory goin on over on the other side. This makes me sing!
So, if there is even victory in death then there can be victory in all of the other things in my life that may look tragic and painful. There is another side and I can choose to stay singing.
So, problems, challenges, annoyances, misunderstandings...take that!

"Up from the grave He arose...

with a mighty triumph o'er His foes...

He arose the victor from the dark domain...

And He lives forever with His saints to reign..."
