My Epitaph

comfort compassion healing Hope humility Joan Winifred never giving up! pain

“all she wanted was a hug”

Blurted, okay, dramatically cried out tonight…;)

(haven’t felt this sick, weak, though my tummy is usually upset, almost (exaggerating a little now) since giving birth to a ten pounder sans drugs!)

Sorry Reader, but pain can be hard to explain… without coming off as a crabby complain…ERRRRR!!

Besides suffering from grief (like most of us fellow-fragile-life)… in its various torturous forms, from caring too much about just about everyone and/or everything i happen to be aware of affecting fellow-fragile-life and our planet (aka compassion fatigue)…i’m finding myself in this semi-constant state of mind/body hypersensitivity!

Food–most food these days–bothers me, a little or A LOT!! some weeks better than others… today,  not a good one. Finding myself so busy with work/responsibilities, etc. unable to really decipher exactly/precisely my inconsistent-consumption-culprits. (I have vague ideas and have eliminated some stuff.)

Stayed up way too late last night till around 4 a.m. reading/studying after a busy day…have to better control my eagerness to drink up the learning! Then was up early getting kids to school, busy with volunteer work, and other activities… so an exhausted/spent body/mind ….mind/body has problems processing an overload of work… digesting food properly can be liken to arduous work, right?

Last week did too much reading, hours upon hours at a setting, strained my eyes; literally couldn’t see straight without tearing…I can’t live without reading, how do the blind cope? (My heart breaks for the blind, (especially the spiritually blind), so thankful for healthy eyesight!) Braille, incredible tactile skill!


Itchiness/allergies/cough is pain, too… and headache…

Well? Feeling better now… enough to document this brief diary of digestive issues.

Indigestion? Sufferings? of the hungry stomach? loving heart? learning mind? limited-frail-flesh?

Realize and am attuned to my personal, particular triggers… that I shall keep private. Thank You for listening Reader and HOPE You:) are healthy and have all the hugs You need to keep going. Sorry IF this post is TMI (too much info).

Learning my limits… challenging. (feeling so pathetic sharing this here; may be? that’s an indicator of a hidden/iota of

arrogance, not sure, that i need to eliminate!)

For some further context, please read:


P.s. the accompanied missing music from my above-mentioned previous “Partners in Wellness” post… we all need a “complete” cure from sickness and pain… asap would be nice, huh?:)… who of us fellow-sufferers couldn’t use a “comforting” hug/kind, encouraging word in the waiting meantime?

Never Give Up Hope!! Keep choosing compassion and patience, forgiveness, peace!!

(listen at your own risk IF You so choose)

A Greek word…

“Re-Creation” Or “regeneration; renewal.” The Greek word pa·lin·ge·ne·siʹa is composed of elements that mean “again; anew; once more” and “birth; origin.” The ancient Jewish writer Philo used the term with reference to the renewal of the world after the Flood; Jewish historian Josephus used it regarding the reestablishment of Israel after the exile. Here in Matthew’s account, it refers to the time when the rule of Christ and his corulers will bring to the earth a renewal of the perfect conditions enjoyed by the first humans before they sinned. [excerpted New World Translation Study Edition, Gems]

Matthew 19:28: “Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, in the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel.”

Those “called to be holy ones” are said to judge, not themselves, but “the world.” (1 Co 1:1,2; 6:2 “Or do you not know that the holy ones will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you not competent to try very trivial matters?”) Those reigning with Christ form a kingdom of priests. (1 Peter 2:9 “But you are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for special possession, that you should declare abroad the excellencies” of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” Revelation 5:10 “and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth.”) Consequently, “the twelve tribes of Israel” mentioned at Matthew 19:28 and Luke 22:30 “so that you may eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the 12 tribes of Israel” evidently represent “the world” of mankind who are outside that royal priestly class and whom those sitting on heavenly thrones will judge.​—Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and those who sat on them were given authority to judge. Yes, I saw the souls of those executed for the witness they gave about Jesus and for speaking about God, and those who had not worshipped the wild beast or its image and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand. And they came to life and ruled as kings with the Christ for 1,000 years.” [excerpted reading: “Tribe” Insight, Vol. 2]

A comparative study of Bible translations is useful; particularly for those of us not fluent/proficient enough in Hebrew, Aramaic, Koine, Old English, Middle English, Early-Modern English. New World Translation Revised Version 2013  is my favorite for many reasons… as well as the study edition! I’ve found it to be trustworthy

I like this word “palingenesia”…find it to be hopeful. The human family and our home/Earth need renewal/healing…compassionate justice.:)

Let’s humbly & courageously face the facts people aka acknowledge our human historical record FULL of undeniable evidence of human’s inability to unselfishly rule other humans successfully long-term and sans violence and destruction and ruination of the planet… every form of human self-government has been a failure!!…(including democracy)…true theocracy is our only hope for compassionate justice!!

self-adjusting buoyancy…

Perhaps a very little thought will now enable you to account for those repeated whaling disasters—some few of which are casually chronicled—of this man or that man being taken out of the boat by the line, and lost. For, when the line is darting out, to be seated then in the boat, is like being seated in the midst of the manifold whizzings of a steam-engine in full play, when every flying beam, and shaft, and wheel, is grazing you. It is worse; for you cannot sit motionless in the heart of these perils, because the boat is rocking like a cradle, and you are pitched one way and the other, without the slightest warning; and only by a certain self-adjusting buoyancy and simultaneousness of volition and action, can you escape being made a Mazeppa of, and run away with where the all-seeing sun himself could never pierce you out.

Moby Dick “the line” chapter LX…

{alone… man… (clue less)… impossible! (tangled/tossed here and there, etc. death-driven) With…God…all things… possible (stability, etc. life-given)}

(Luke 18:27) He said: “The things impossible with men are possible with God.”

25 When the disciples heard that, they were greatly astounded, saying: “Who really can be saved?” 26 Looking at them intently, Jesus said to them: “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:25, 26)
