Pressure Cooker

Do You ever feel
inadequate? or not quite skilled enough
for the raw thrown at You??

(reality) pressure points..most of us have them..(feel them, eh?)

the minor and MAJOR momentary (seemingly relentless) challenges..(the circumstances, etc/the pot we find ourselves in)

key?…not reaching my boiling point! (or is it: finding contentment in chaos)

the refining process…(of clay life underway)

is a pressurized person tender/sterilized?…(clean spiritually speaking)

my simple symbolism…letting off a little steam.

Do i need a cup of tea?…this morning..(and better metaphors;)
(feeling poured out?)

cultivating self-control? not gonna raise my voice…just my words, huh?

Thinking about: What, Where and Who?

I was thinking about…

THINKING about

–You :)–

and then thought

NO!

Why let myself/my mind/my heart…..go……………………………………………………….there/their

to (a) place(s)

i “may” never come back from

A L I V E

(emotionally or otherwise)

though

believe me please (aka it’s true)

when

i

say

I WOULD DIE FOR YOU and

probably/potentially (already) am

s~l~o~w~l~y (and otherwise)

of (a)

broken/mostly MENDED Heart…

THANK GOD…i am FIXED!…as in: (according to an on-line identity/description/definition of “fixed”)

fastened, attached, or placed so as to be firm and not readily movable; firmly implanted;
rendered stable or permanent, as color.
set or intent upon something; steadily directed: a fixed stare.
definitely and permanently placed: a fixed buoy; a fixed line of defense.
not fluctuating or varying; definite: a fixed purpose.
(You know: “eyes on the prize”)

i can only

L O V E

for now…(and)

HOPE  FULLY

in fixing/healing

You/Others…then!

when

i’m a fully functioning mind:  (aka absolute compassion (among other things))

(!HALLELUJAH!)

this is what i’m thinking:

“Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are of serious concern, whatever things are righteous, whatever things are chaste/pure, whatever things are lovable, whatever things are well-spoken-of, whatever things are virtuous, and whatever things are praiseworthy, continue considering/or thinking about/meditating on these things.” (Philippians 4:8)

Plus, the fresh air and sunshine is my disinfectant/(healer) as well:  recently read this in Awake! March 2015 excerpt: (my highlights)

 The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes that natural ventilation, which includes outside air flowing through a building, is important for infection control. Indeed, WHO guidelines published in 2009 encourage use of such natural ventilation as an effective measure in reducing the risk of infection at health-care facilities.

Studies conducted at a United Kingdom Ministry of Defence site provide some answers. Scientists there were trying to establish how long the air would remain dangerous if a biological weapon armed with harmful bacteria were exploded over London. To determine the viability of airborne pathogens, the researchers anchored E. coli microorganisms to threads of spider silk and exposed them to the open air. The experiment was performed at night, since it was known that sunlight kills these bacteria. What were the results?

Some two hours later, nearly all the bacteria were dead. Yet, when the bacteria were kept in a closed box in the same location and at the same temperature and humidity, most of them were still alive past the two-hour mark. Why? Evidently, something about being in the open air kills germs. This so-called open-air factor has not been clearly identified. However, researchers point to a compound that occurs naturally in open air and that “acts as a natural disinfectant against pathogens or germs that lurk in the atmosphere.”

Sunlight also has natural disinfecting properties. The Journal of Hospital Infection explains that “the majority of microbes that cause airborne infections cannot tolerate sunlight.

 My beloved/(country) grandma, resting in PEACE, Ella Mae Love-Wil—-, liked/sang this song & it (always) reminds me of Her (and Other Loved Ones! and my (long-gone) city youth and past New Hampshire Mountain family (camping) vacations)!

Be-ing SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH-ed, huh??

Psalm 4:4: “Have your say in your heart, upon your bed, and keep silent.”

If we have been the object of unkind words or actions, let us not retaliate. (Rom. 12:17-19) We can have our say in our heart while in bed. If we pray about the matter, we may see it in a different light and be moved to forgive out of love. (1 Pet. 4:8)

shhhhhhh!!!!!!! shutting up except…in bed. 😉

“In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for you yourself alone, O Jehovah, make me dwell in security.” (Ps. 4:8)

…feeling sleepy…? feeling secure!:)
