Cm-9.22.12  1st Cor. 15.35-37, 42-49  Ps. 56. 10C-12, 13-14  Lk. 8. 4-5

Cosmic connection:   dawn, overcast slight quick burn off until clear skies.

Question of the day: What am I doing to make sure Jesus’ words take root in me?

Even Paul mentions sowing and growing,

Life and resurrection, spiritual and natural,

We shall bear the image of the last Adam, glorious and supernatural,

The image of the heavenly one showing.

 

With my present circumstance I know that God is with me,

In that is my trust without fear,

Full of thanksgiving and good cheer,

Let us walk in the light of the living rescued without stumbling and see.

 

The parable of the seed and the type of soil in which it is sown,

Rocky, thorny, eaten by birds,

But yet in Jesus’ time there was not yet the concept of changing ones’ soil endured.

The seed so precious the word of God planted in hearts to share the known.

“Blessed are those who have kept the word with a generous heart,

Yielding a rich harvest” goodness and gentleness to impart.

Cm-9.19.12  1st Cor. 12. 31=13.13  Ps. 33. 2-3, 4-5, 12. 22  Lk. 7. 31-35

Cosmic connection: cold crisp quiet morning, eagerly awaiting sunshine

Question of the Day: How can I act on the words of Jesus I have heard this week?

 

Love, love grace from above,

Patient, kind, not jealous, not inflated,

Keeps us in line and totally related,

Rejoices in the truth, thereof

 

“Blessed be the people the Lord has chosen as his own”

Giving thanks this day for life and grace,

Winging songs that are new going at a different pace,

The Lord love justice and right this day will show how we have grown.

 

Jesus compares us to children small,

Dancing in the city square who knows the correct way to care?

Follow John the Baptist, Jesus who? Sinners tax collectors do we dare

Vindication and wisdom come through all the wee ones grandchildren enthrall.

‘Your words are Spirit and life,

Let me listen and follow words leading to everlasting life.

 CM-9.16.12  Isaiah 60.5-9A  Ps. 116. 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 8-9  James 2. 14-18 Mk. 8. 27-35

Cosmic connection very dark, very quiet early morn, no birds just a motor and planets.

Question of the day: How do I respond to hardship and difficulties in living as God requires?

Isaiah foresees the suffering servant, such as the Lord,

So much is to happen to him, who will not be put to shame,

Even though in the end He accepts all the blame,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Who can oppose Him so resiliently restored.

 

The reason for resilience is the heavenly support

Because the cords of death have been around Him most of his life, a \fighter,

We trust in God to make our life go a little lighter,

Such trust brings one to ones knees in adoration,

 

James wants us to prove our faith through our works,

How can we pass by the person in need?

The Lord has sent each one of us to intercede,

We are all parts of Christ’s body, baptism’s perks.

 

The Gospel is not simple Jesus and Peter rebuke each other,

Satan becomes involved Peter does not understand,

The Passion prediction is at hand,- Who do you say I am?

We each must carry our cross and follow the Lord encouraging our sisters and brothers‘

‘May I never boast except in the cross of the Lord,

Through which the world has been crucified to me and I to the world,’ he implored.

Cosmic connection very dark, very quiet early morn, no birds just a motor and planets.

Question of the day: How do I respond to hardship and difficulties in living as God requires?

Isaiah teaches us to trust in the Lord,

The passage is as bit brash,

I imagine a child with chubby hands on her waist ready to fight back in a flash,

But in the end she is assured of her rights with the Lord God as her help,-

Who can oppose her resiliently restored.

The reason for her confidence is that her God has heard her in her supplication,

Because the cords of death have been around her most of her life, a \fighter,

We trust in God to make our life go a little lighter,

Such trust brings one to her knees in adoration,

James wants us to prove our faith through our works,

Cm-9.9.12. Isaiah 35. 4-7A  Ps. 146. 7, 8, 9-10   James 2. 1-5  Mk 7. 31-37

Cosmic connection:  Dawn! Clear skies, quiet still, no birds

Question of the day: When has God’s presence calmed my fears?

 

Ah, the blank page sits before me a Sunday focusing on curing,

To resolve a physical problem to restore to health,

What is that to me with chronic illness my wealth,

Then I have to depend and trust daily on God to gift me another day securing,

 

Do not show partiality to anyone

Treat everyone with equality and equanimity

Let not your service to others become a frivolity,

God is the giver, we the receivers of a grateful hearts inclusive and home spun.

 

The man healed in the Gospel has a speech impediment

Jesus heals through touch and word,

He ordered the man not to tell anyone; but his gratitude was spurred,

He told everyone his impediment was no longer a detriment.

 

‘Jesus proclaimed the gospel of the Kingdom,

And cured every disease among the people’ their unearned income

Cm-9.7.12  1st Cor.4. 1-5  Ps. 37. 3-4, 6-7, 27-28, 39-40  Lk. 5. 33-39

Cosmic connection: Quiet, foggy gray morning to burn off to sunshine

Question of the day: When do I judge other people?

 

Paul wants us to consider ourselves servants or stewards

Stewards are those who provide for others,

Take care of their needs sister or brother,

Paul emphasizes that we are to be judged by the Lord hopefully not

skewered.

 

Our psalmist shows us the way: trust in the Lord and do good,

The salvation of the just is from the Lord, a refuge in time of need,

Helps us to do good, delivers us and helps us to help others to take the lead

The Lord helps us and delivers us if we do what we should.

 

Jesus and the Pharisees once again; they ask about fasting,

Jesus foretells his suffering by saying now they have the bridegroom with them,

He also relates the parable of sewing a new patch on an old cloak or hem

Or new wine into old wineskins. The old is good and lasting

 

Jesus is the light of the world, rife

Whoever follows me will have the light of life

CM-8.21.12  Ezekiel28. 1-10  Dt. 32. 26-27AB, 27CD=28, 20  Mt. 19. 23-30

Cosmic connection: gray foggy skies, ravens a-cawing.

Question of the day: What expectations do I have about rewards for following Jesus?

Ezekiel tells us once again how far we are with our disloyalty of God,

God wants to discourage our pride, arrogance and haughtiness

O how providential the rhyming word is naughtiness,

Profoundly we need to honor who really is in charge; humility quite flawed

 

“It is I who deal death and give life”

We are devoid of. understanding,

Do not reflect on what God is demanding,

Surely God will do justice for his people who desire to live without strife.

 

The rich, those with possessions picture the camel, and the needle’s eye,

What a picture Matthew comes up with,

His picture is anything but a myth,

For God all things are possible, our rock who is on high.

 

Jesus Christ became poor although he was rich,

So that by his poverty we might believe his pitch.
