Remodelling Your Spirituality
Jesus was in the business of opening things up: the minds of the disciples and others by his parables, and the eyes of the blind and ears of the deaf through his miracles. He opens hearts to the truth, today and eternally! Throw open the curtains. Better still, take them down. Make curtains, instead, at the extent of your outer boundaries. Learn to live an expansive life. Jesus died for it. We do not hide a shimmering lantern; we place it on the lampstand for all to see.Transparency and the Nagging Absence of God

To live in the moment it helps to pay attention to time, the time you have left. Time doesn’t flow backwards…it flows forward. The past is over. It’s done. It’s finished. We can’t go back.

There may be no link between our life circumstance and our sense of contentedness.

For better and for worse; there for both, is God.
