Swear To God … He’s Listening (When You’re Not)

WE TALK

Him and I.

Couple of Chatty Cathy’s yapping it up …

We are.

And, when we don’t gab it out over this, that and the other thing, I understand His silence.

My bad.

Always my bad.

He’s waiting for me to call.

He’s Old School.

GO AHEAD, IT’S YOUR TURN

“Hello, Father.”

Let Him know you’re thinking about Him.

Not only yourself.

And others.

It’s not always about you.

Even when it’s about you.

DON’T BE SO DAMN SERIOUS

He has a sense of humor.

He invented laughter.

Smiles, too.

And, Atheism

Procrastination, too.

That doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a good thing.

Unless you’re contemplating doing something stupid or immoral.

Then its an exceptionally good thing.

It just is.

MAKE IT SHORT

Get to the point.

He’s busy.

Have you checked out His itinerary?

One point.

All you need.

DON’T FUSS ABOUT

With a laundry list of bad behavior seeking clemency on the spot.

Ask forgiveness.

Its why your here.

Come to Him with solutions.

Understand what you did and what you didn’t do.

To get where you are and where you’re going.

LIFE MESSES HAPPEN

Beautiful roses die.

The innocent ones parish.

Young and old.

We hurt.

What we do to make sense of it … 

WE PRAY WITH GRATITUDE

Thank Him for everything in your life.

The Good.

And, yes, The Bad …

The Meh.

The Pain.

The Loss.

All of it.

Don’t make promises you can’t keep.

Big or small.

Not cool.

About Doing Life Right.

Start with one simple, clear thought.

Penance is more fun than you’d imagine.

IF YOUR BUCKET LIST

Includes playing St. Andrews, trekking up Picchu Machu, attending Coachella or flaming out at Burning Man Festival … 

You may want to consider adding Redemption before the final curtain.

I’m just saying, let it be The Next Big Thing.

Life gets indescribably more beautiful and wondrous.

Believe in Miracles.

You’ll see.

Or, not.

FIND YOUR PURPOSE

Map your Path to Salvation.

Set goals for Eternity.

There it is.

Right inside you.

Your True Purpose.

Its that simple.

And obvious.

When you know where to look.

Life is not a mystery.

It never was.

And neither are you.

SPOILER ALERT

We all die.

You and I.

Two of us.

Every Living Soul Ever Born … 

So get on with it.

MAKE GOOD

On those broken promises.

Eradicate hypocrisy in self.

Extinguish Ego.

Penance does a Soul Good.

Work at it.

All of it.

BE GREAT BY DOING GREAT

Help others.

The way you were meant.

You were made to be great.

Not perfect.

Thank God.

Eat a healthy breakfast.

Clean up.

Now do something nice for someone.

And don’t tell anyone.

Until you’ve nailed it.

Abstinence.

Clarity of thought.

Good intentions delivered.

Tolerance.

NEGATE JUDGEMENT

Hate, why?

Because.

Just no.

No, we don’t hate.

Ever.

WE LOVE

Love is what we do.

Love is us.

Love is all we do.

We are loved.

God Loves You.

Ask Him if you haven’t figured it out.

GIVE THANKS

Always, whenever, every time.

Because you don’t need a reason.

Give thanks for everything.

ACCEPT YOUR FAULTS

Every one of them.

Keep counting.

Go on …

… More than you thought, huh?

I know, same here.

Then go out into the world and defeat them.

FORGIVE, FORGET

Grow Your True Spirit.

Dissolve expectations of others.

Live in this very moment.

Forgiveness is Unconditional True Love. 

Start there.

HUG LIFE

“A Big Hug, All Y’all.”

Tighter.

When Life is cruel and unlovable.

It’ll love you back.

In time.

It’s how Love works.

LOVING GOD IS EASY

… Easy like Sunday morning.

Thanks, Lionel.

Start inside.

Heart. 

Mind.

Soul.

BE SWEET

Good habits are infectious.

So are bad ones.

You decide.

What’s it going to be?

IF YOU SCREW UP

And, you will.

That’s okay.

Do-Overs are permitted.

You’ll get it right.

MAKE THE CALL

Tick-Tock.

He’s listening.

And, waiting.

There you go.

“You Just Made The World A Better Place.”

Let me know how it went.
