comfort food

All of us need some comfort food…(a Dear Friend of mine today…gave me some; just at the right/appropriate time…Encouraging Words to carry on. Grateful!:))

Finding comfort can be like finding Truth. Pieces of the Puzzle…you may have a t, u or an h…and resolve/dedication…never giving up the quest for accuracy…in all things/matters…that matter most.

“A word spoken at the right time​—how good it is!”​—Prov. 15:23

excerpted brief reading: [reference: W November 2016–“Keep On Encouraging One Another Each Day“]

Some parents do not commend their children because their own parents never gave them any encouragement. Many employees are not being commended, so they complain that there is a chronic shortage of encouragement in the workplace. Encouragement often involves commending a person for something he or she did well. We can also be encouraging by reassuring others that they have good qualities or by speaking “consolingly to those who are discouraged.” (1 Thess. 5:14, ftn.)

Do we use suitable occasions to let others know why we love and appreciate them?

Sunday Shades of Nuanced Satisfaction

Sunday is usually a favorite day of mine…a day of spiritual opportunity for reflection/contemplation/meditation/

association with like-minded ones…
i’ve tried my best to be at peace with all-fellow-fragile-life (crossing my path in any manner of crossing i.e. on and off-line) and to be as generous as possible within the framework of my limitations…(though imperfectly and with God’s help, of course). (and Of course, i still need to make changes/adjustments in my attitude/speech and not complain about trivial stuff that aggravates me!!…yep, i am very much a continued work in progress!!)

(maintaining peace with Others aka trying to be helpful, kind, compassionate, and giving and forgiving…etc.)

nuanced satisfaction…or feeling like you tried your best on most fronts or at least the ones in your limited control…(i.e. the daily expected) and unexpected and tried to be a friend to all-fellow-fragile-life…and do my best to help and serve Other fellow-life when/if i am needed within the context of my present situation…aka puny role i play in this life…

just trying to live agape love..to the best of my knowledge and know-how…(and “hopefully” without offending or hurting Other-Fellow-Fragile-Life in my process of compassion growth). IF You have been offended…i am SORRY!

PEACE fellow-sufferer(s)…:) Take comfort in trying…(to live unselfish compassion) to the best of your abilities.

today this afternoon 9/3/17

&Partial lyrics to a Beautiful Song…recently discovered:

A heart full of questions, a life so unsure,
I heard what you told me; I wanted more.

What you told me, I wanted more.

Unanswered questions were answered that day.

The worry I was feeling melted away.

All my worries faded away.

It’s a long road we’re going down,

But faith can make things happen.

When there’s no way through and no way round,

Faith can make things happen,

Make things happen.

2. I love what I’m learning and share what I know.
I’m ready and waiting, so here I go.

Yes, I’m ready

To share what I know.

My faith is like a fire that burns within my heart.

I’ve got to keep it burning and do my part.

Keep it burning deep in my heart.

9/3/17 @8:07 p.m.

p.s. i also have “faith” in You Reader:)…that You will continue to do the compassionate thing (regardless of any unjust/seemingly unfair treatment by the many or by the few)…even when no one is watching…or completely appreciates what You do or who You are…

God Knows…
beautiful hearts
like
Yours:)

Sickness and Sadness

Obvious observation (by me)

above-see level…

(living (?); yep. existing/operating/functioning/working…(compassion))

H.F.T…Harvesting, Funneling, and Trapping

To keep themselves warm during cold weather, butterflies spread their wings in the sun. The wings of some species of swallowtail are remarkably efficient at trapping and absorbing sunlight. The insects’ secret lies not just in their dark pigment but also in the structure of microscopic, overlapping scales coating their wings. The scales, in turn, contain rows of honeycomblike holes separated by inverse V-shaped ridges that funnel light into the holes. This ingenious structure traps incoming sunlight, making the wings extremely black and warming the butterfly with amazing efficiency.

“Butterfly wings may rank among the most delicate structures in nature,” says Science Daily, “but they have given researchers powerful inspiration for new technology that doubles the production of hydrogen gas—a green fuel of the future—from water and sunlight.” [excerpted Article/my bold highlights: Was It Designed? The Light-Absorbing Butterfly Wing AWAKE! 2014]

hmmmm…a no brainer to me, YES! An innovative-intelligent-chief-builder-designer constructed/created Butterfly wings!:)

Life Lesson: Don’t underestimate any (seemingly) delicate structure/frame/form…

If Butterflies can fly/function with 70% wing damage…

IF only 30% of my life is chaos/problem/challenge-free…i can still FLY HIGH!…survive 🙂
