Matthew 22:34-40 ~ yourself

Today I stepped out to walk my Springer dog and the Wind of the Spirit was blowing.

John 3:8
The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.

Bono was singing and demonstrating the Bible is so real and living. The depth and breadth of Jesus Living.

Have you come here for forgiveness,
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head

Jesus Christ is really the way, truth and Life. Life is about sorting out the imperfect - taking meaning - leaving other meaning to become compost. And upon the compost putting our solid and enduring Truth of Jesus to build a life of meaning. I picture Mount Sinai and a Church of Glass.  The beauty of an impossible Spire reaching to the Heavens - converting instantly to a fortress of God by His Word. Because I live in this culture - I picture the Banks of England close their teller windows with amazing and instantaneous Jesus Precision. The Church of my soul where Jesus Christ lives, moves and dwells with my being. My soul. Where I pray for the ones I love and the people God has placed in my life.

We can all have our lives relate to the real way life works. We have a sunny day - top down. Favorite Song on the radio - spending time with those we love. An endless sunshine day.

Enter the Iggy Story into your day. My brother has a life long friend, Bob, who by coincidence and accident of God, turned out to be his 5 year elementary school friend - by accident, like I said - turned out to be our Dallas across the alley - we moved both moved one summer and - Oh My God Almighty - I am your across the alley neighbor... And on with the Iggy Pop Story. Your day is perfect, the fans love you, all is sunshine.

Bob was waiting to meet Iggy with the rest of the diehards. Bob had a shirt or an album for Iggy to sign. Iggy arrives. And standing next to Iggy, is a beautiful young girl waiting with an album to sign. And the beautiful, young girl has been talking to Bob, who just enjoyed meeting her and waiting for Iggy. Bob said it was friendly, comrades. And Iggy, who is 25-35 years older, decides he is going to mesh tonsils with this young woman.

Bob said looking back on it, it was as if all the mothers in the world had converged upon his voice and tone and inflection.


The gathered Crowd saw how sincere Bob was and they Roared. The crowd fully understood what Bob was saying. And they applauded. Asked Bob's name and chanted, "Bob. BOB. BOB."

Iggy was - less than pleased. The girl broke off the tonsil sling and sincerely, as if for the first time - Looked at Iggy. With less than joy. Iggy quickly departed. Then the crowd said, quietly, "Poor Iggy."

True Story. I know Bob. Bob is a friend of mine. Bob said he had a range of allllll kind of emotions getting in his car to ride home and think about this forever. To this day, Bob says, he is "conflicted" over the situation. We think, probably, it wasn't Iggy's best day either.

Have you noticed?

Life moves pretty fast, if you are Ferris Bueller.
We have moved from Statue Tipping - and mooo on over to World Wide Wrestling NFL. Head, shoulders, knees and toes.

Moving on to "Aflac" - That is Ben Affleck is in trouble for being friends with Harvey Weinstein. Yet - No one really comments on Paltrow saying she set Pitt on Weistein to later congratulate Weinstein at an Award Dnner and thank him for his great friendship.

Ain't that America something to see...
I'm a Huge fan of older President Bush working with Democrats and Republicans. Seeing America work - having to apologize to Heather Lind. Echoing Taylor Swift.

All of these Changes - make a head swim. And a lot of what is said here is very good. Making behavior - Behave. But there is one component missing - Gracious Behavior.

We started with Respect - maybe we'd all have more Respect - to give Mercy. And want to be within Gracious Behavior.

Jesus Christ gives Grace - to begin again. To pick up tired knees and drooping hands - To have the Wind of the Spirit - do the right thing.

Brooks Gibs explains Jesus principals. "Turn the Other Cheek". Chaff - opposite of Wheat. Blow it off. The Jesus Principle. Love yourself. Care for others.

Matthew 22:34-40

34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

What we need to expect to give - Give what we expect to receive. Expect the Goodness of God. Expect to see Goodness and participate in goodness.te


The Bible is Real. The Truths eternal. The work of every day is to Believe in the One You have sent to us - Jesus Christ.

We will Trust God for our direction. We will Trust God to give mercy and give the way, truth and Life.

In God we will establish Steadfast Love for our lives. Finding even the mundane day has meaning with God as our force and direction.

Eternal Truths remain Eternal Truths. Blessings of Jesus wanting to save the World.

Gratitude for my parents teaching me to be polite. Gratitude for my parents, God gave me, teaching me the framework of God is for our upbuilding and hope.

We Trust You, Father. For Your steadfast Love and mercy to us. To help us to have Your Grace, and Your Love.

Your Plans for us go incredibly far. Incredibly deep. Down to each part of the nuance of our self conversations and with others. We give You all our hopes for the people we Love. We give You our prayers and heart for the people You have given. We ask more of Your Holy Spirit for the place where we live, work and for our Nation, Your Steadfast Love increasing around the world to those You Love. Amen for us all in Jesus. 

In Jesus, we know and claim with relief and joy, "God's Banner over me is Love." Amen.

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He has saved all who call upon His name and rely on Him for His Grace. The Scriptures are living & active and are for understanding the Lord Almighty. Biblical readings are chosen from the Ecumenical Christian Church and the Nicene Council, 325 A.D., approved Apocrypha. People remember not just from reading, but by sight and orally- an image has been added as well as audio readings. God tends to link the passages together with fascinates - this blogger, Anne-Laurel Gardere

About Me

My photo
Email registry at bottom.! “All Scripture is inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:16). Men “moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:21). The Holy Spirit carried men along, moving and guiding them as they wrote in their own words what God wanted them to say. The Bible is unique; comprised of 80 separate books, & written over a period of thousands of years by more than 40 writers with one Author, spanning the centuries, different states of peace & war & different situations in life. The Bible answers the question: of who is God, who is man & what can their relationship can be. Although the Bible was written on perishable material and copied by hand for many centuries, its accuracy is not in doubt, proven by Dead Sea Scrolls and papyrus from 2,000 years. The Bible has survived persecution & criticism to be read with great interest in each generation. The Bible gives witness to the greatness of the Creator. A loving Father concerned for all of his creation. With each verse of the bible witnessing to God is love and the multitude & vastness of His attributes. The Bible was written for you. <><
