The Family Tree Part 1

God's Garden

“We are flowing into a new period; a time of reflection and being.”

Advent is a time of preparation, the birth of the Christ and the transition that comes from within; the outline for what is to come. Let nothing impede your progress.

For the next few weeks, we will be focusing on one’s spiritual roots; where you’ve been and where you are going, “The root of wisdom—to whom has it been revealed? Her subtleties—who knows them?” (Sir 1:6)

The signs are all around us, pay attention.

There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars; on the earth distress among nations, confused by the roaring of the sea and the waves.” (Lk. 21:25)

Further Reflection:

Contemplate this message:

During meditation, the Holy Breath of the Risen One blew upon me with this message for you: “Be blessed and be encouraged.” Isn’t that a beautiful message? God always gives me what I need, when I need it.

To “Open the Silence” is to ‘let God’s peace blow upon you like a gentle summer breeze.”

Clearing the Way

“One night I had a dream, I was walking along the beach with the Lord.”*

The places I spiritually interact and walk with Yeshua are in my garden or at the beach. Yesterday, during meditation, I was walking on the beach and I immediately, I thought of the prose, “Footprints.”

I first received a copy of this famous text, in a handwritten letter; given to me by a dear friend, years ago, when facing some obstacles in my life. I consider it one of my greatest treasures. In fact, I took it in and out of the envelope so many times, that I tore the envelope a bit.

In the midst of moving a few times, I lost the correspondence.  I tore my home apart looking for it and was so distressed when I couldn’t find it. Several years passed and I considered it lost or accidentally destroyed.

Last year, while going through some books in my office, the letter fell out of one of my books. It was still in the same envelope with the cover letter from my friend and the copy of footprints. 

I went through those books a dozen times. I knew it had to be an angel or one from beyond who put that letter back, because I needed to read it again. I was facing another major shift in my life. God always gives us what we need when we need it.

As we made our way down the beach, there was a sand dollar in the sand. Jesus said, “Pick it up and thrown it back in the water.” We walked a bit more and there was a snail shell. Again, he said, “Pick it up and throw it back in.”  Next there was a small rock and I threw it back in the water. We kept walking and I noticed a large boulder on the beach; oh boy!

There are many obstacles we face in this life. Sometimes there are blocks that cannot be moved, no matter how hard we try. A friend told me years ago, “Patty, God will move mountains, but you better bring the bull dozer.”

Jesus said to me, “If we both push this, it will go into the water.” Faith was the bull dozer and we rolled the boulder into the sea.

One of my favorite passages about moving mountains comes from Mark 11:

Jesus said, “Have faith in god. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘be taken up and thrown into the sea’ and does not doubt in her/his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for her/him.”

“It was then that I carried you.”*

Adjusting the Plate

“Dear God, you have given me so much. Please give me one more thing, a grateful heart.” (G. Herbert)

As we approach Thanksgiving, the Day of Gratitude; I am passing on this message on to you:

“Your plate has been full for several years. The moment has come in your life to rearrange the plate by removing that which is no longer works; making choices about how, where and with whom you share your time.

Take care of what is in front of you each day. Nurture the gifts you have been given.

Give it all to God; be Christ centered instead of self-centered.”

“The Son of Man did not come to be served; but to serve and to give His life, a ransom for many.” (Mt. 20)

Where You Are!

“I will walk with you, talk with you, lift you up and direct you.”*

It’s not about where you are; it’s about where I want you to be. Placement, timing and perception are all necessary components in the life of one who is moving into a new modality of being or season.

Whereas, looking back over the years, one can see the key points or happenings in her/his life that changed the course or path. Now, we stand in that same plane of existence.

It is time to pick up the pace, in order to keep time and be; with all I have in store for you.

Change is necessary and can be unpleasant, but at the end of it all, there will be a purpose.

Keep stepping into your next mode or new life, while existing in your present situation. It is all good in the scheme of things.

As always, let go and be. Watch what I will do and you will find where you are, is where I want you to be!

“Stepping in and out with Christ requires one to get out of the way.” *


*Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life

In My Time!

“Allow my time to be your time, keep pace with me.” (PAZ)

Yearning comes from knowing; all is coming to pass as it is, “In My Time.”

You are impatient believing there is not enough time, but there is; life is eternal.

Don’t give up before the miracle happens by manifesting fear. Dig deep for your faith, it’s in there.

I AM calling you out of the depths of Egypt; switching from unconsciousness into consciousness; moving from darkness into My Light.

You are called in this new time to let go of all that has nothing to do with your life’s journey and move on.

I AM the master designer. I have a plan and a purpose for you. Follow my direction and all will be well. I have brought you out of the pit to live and find joy.

See with vision, clarity and purpose; leaving the results and divine timing in my hands.

“Yahweh will keep your going out and your coming in; from this time forward and forever more.” (Ps. 121)

The Little Things

“Follow your path inspired by God, inspired by the Spirit.”*

Where are we now? It is time to focus on the “Little Things” in life.

Take time to smell a flower, pull a weed, cut back overgrowth. Tend to the garden in your own yard. Make sure everything is ready for winters nap; prepare and wait.

This is also a time of introspection as you move about the garden. Pay attention to the “Little Things.” Watch for a butterfly or dragonfly; imitate the gentleness of movement.

Make sure your own steps are soft; barely noticed.

There is so much more to see and learn. Slow down your pace.

“Make us more aware of the goodness of God and how well he tends his garden.” (St. Therese)

*Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, pg. 79

Pressing Into It

“They were unharmed in the middle of the fire.” (Dn. 3)

Many times on his ministry journey, Jesus put himself in the middle of more than one situation; in spite of what was coming down the road, “God is greater than what resides in one’s heart.”

“The seed that is sown in good soil is like someone who hears the Word and understands it and that being bears fruit.” (Mt. 13)

When we struggle, we are called to put God in the middle of everything in our lives; our labor, our relationships, ministry, etc.

“When we pray, reflections and images often pass through our minds. We are surprised to find ourselves saying, ‘My thoughts are wandering. My heart is distracted.’ *

When we press into it, we have to put Jesus in the middle or nothing works.

“Yes, I am in the middle of it and so are you. You don’t belong in the middle, so get out.”


When the Unexpected Comes Knocking

“Before you call, I answer.”

How can one attain peace when life is in turmoil?

What about the negative thoughts keep circling around or confusion that knocks one off her/his path? In bewilderment, our vision becomes distorted; we don’t have the whole picture; what if?

We feel trapped, as though we have to go to battle for someone or something. Whose battle is it? Is the battle ours to fight? No.

“Rest in the Lord. Do not fret.”

Learning to get out of God’s way can be a challenge, but not impossible.

 “The government rests upon God’s shoulders.”

Take action instead of reacting by moving out of the driver’s seat.

We may receive a word from a friend or an inspiration from the Spirit nudging us to follow a different course; opening the door to peace and hope.

Letting go and believing God works in mysterious ways and unexpected places, with wonders; will allow one to maintain a balance when the unexpected comes knocking.

 “When you are in trouble, I will be with you!”
