MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015



Season's Greetings & A Holiday Reflection
 
 






As you embrace the dawning of the New Year 2015 and the twilight of the Present Year 2014,
 

May you be gifted by the wonder and the bliss of excited expectation for dreams yet to come,
 

May you be greeted with a banner of peace and songs of joy,
 

May you be enraptured by the warmth of being loved,
 

May you be courageous enough to embrace the strength of your weakness,
 

And humble enough to embrace the weakness of your strength,

 
May you risk to set the world aflame with love, joy, benevolence, and peace,
 

May the lantern of your heart burn passionately and brightly
that others will see its light and be inspired,
 

May you be renewed, enlightened, and affirmed that you are beautiful and gifted,
 

May you be catapulted to greater heights of imagination, inspiration, potential, and creativity,
 

May you know how special you are and because of your presence, the world in a better place,
 

May your bounty for the New Year overflow in grace, prosperity, goodness,
 joy, love, and glad tidings of peace,
 

Now, during this season, and throughout the year to come!

 

 
Blessings For A Wonderful New Year

ACCEPTANCE AT GOD'S TABLE



THE  LORD'S SUPPER:
THE COMMUNION TABLE OF GOD


"For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you
proclaim the LORD'S death until HE comes." 1 Corinthians 11:26



Have you been rejected, shut out, forgotten, victimized, misrepresented, shamed, oppressed, depressed, mishandled, scorned, rebuffed, or harshly criticized? If you have, there is good news for you!


The Good News: Beloved there is always room at God’s Table for You! At God’s table you are always welcomed, loved, accepted, affirmed, encouraged, and embraced, because God loved and loves you so much that even before you were formed in your mother’s womb, that He sent His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to take the weight and die on The Cross for the remission of humanity’s sin!

Be encouraged Beloved of The Most High! God has prepared a royal destiny for you because God loves you, yes you, so much and even more profoundly that we are capable of comprehending, that he welcomes you at His Table. Jesus reminded his disciples at The Communion Table, Last Supper, of the reality of God’s love before He departed from them and ascended to Heaven, while imparting The Holy Spirit, The Comforter, to keep and minister to us until His glorious return!

You are loved! There is hope! You have a future! Do not give up!


“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!” Jeremiah 29:11

Be Blessed,

A CITY ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN



A CITY ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN. IT IS A LIKE A LANTERN UNTO A PATH.
 






“A City upon a Hill” is a phrase from the parable of Salt and Light in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. In Matthew 5:14, Jesus tells his listeners,
"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden."

Be reminded of who you are and whose you are!

LIVING WATERS THAT REFRESH THE SOUL


LIVING WATERS
 
 
 
 


Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”

REVELATION 22:1-2

YOU ARE GOD'S HANDIWORK




YOU ARE GOD'S HANDIWORK


You are the handiwork work of the LORD! GOD loves us to much that we are created in multifaceted hues, shapes, sizes. Because of GOD’S magnificence and love, you possess profound gifts and talents, all of which are designed to bless one another and glorify the presence and reality of GOD.

You are GOD’S INSTRUMENTS of Light, Hope, Peace, Joy, and Inspiration! It is our “Divine Calling” and “Pilgrimage in Truth” to live into both the manifestation and fulfillment of this precious and gracious gift!

Never ever for one moment, nor second, doubt your magnificence, giftedness, uniqueness, beauty, purpose nor destiny, neither the fact that you are LOVED with a LOVE whose depth, breadth, and height are so profound that its magnitude defies our full comprehension, yet requires our simple acceptance of this profound LOVE. You are LOVED because you are LOVE! Thank you for being YOU! Go in Peace today and everyday! Blessings and peace be upon you always

Spring Blessings To The Beloved


A Reflection Written in Honor of Each of You:  



Spring Blessings To The Beloved

 

May you be graced and refreshed by the SPIRIT of rejuvenation,

Overflow with unquenchable bliss,

Bask in the awe of lovely things to yet come,

Be showered by the freshness of morning rain,

Marvel in the splendorous hues of Nature’s bounty; her cloak of flowers and trees,

Be a beneficiary of prosperity as vast as the blue sky,

Be enraptured by the  inspiration that all Winters become Spring,

Be revitalized by the fragrance of fresh cut flowers,

And

Be blessed by the glad tidings during this season of Spring and the days to come!

 

Blessings & Namaste

Kevin Mason

And then I saw a boat which carries souls across the river and the name of that boat was "love."

Minnie Riperton Montage

Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Minnie Riperton
 
11/8/1947-7/12/1979
 
Minnie Riperton Montage
 
Minnie, a rare once in a lifetime voice with a vocal register kissed by the breath of GOD and the whisper of angels with a spirit so free, so loving, and so beautiful. May you forever be loved and always remembered. Thank you for the immortal gift of your artistry. Your voice soared to the heavens and your song writing ability was like that of a canvas of flowers that were sprinkled poetry to the soul. There is and never will be another like you! “Loving you is easy, because you are beautiful.”

ACRONYM FOR CHANGE









CHANGE
Beloved of the Most High: You have not happened upon this meditation neither by accident nor by default. There have been many challenges that you have faced recently and you're feeling overpowered; oftentimes, like you are being overtaken and drowning in the tidal waves of life. You might be wondering whether or not if it is worth it to read any further because it appears that your efforts are in vain and the result is futile.
 
 
Beloved, you were carried here by the very waves that you thought would consume you. You were lead here by a gracious and loving FORCE that is greater than you.
 
 
You have been seeking an answer(s), a response, and a resolution. Stay a while and rest. Be still as the answer is not in your fight against the waves, but by your ability to embrace them, give in to them, recognize them, seek to understand the message that they are offering you, and become one them for in doing so you are allowing not only yourself, but your perspective, and your circumstances to CHANGE. There is tremendous power in letting go! When one lets go, he/she opens himself/herself to new and greater opportunities in God's plan and grace!
 
 
May you be graced by the gift of the blessing of CHANGE on this day; even right now as you read and reflect upon this quiet meditation. May the LORD grant you "divine courage and loving hope" and the quiet and sure confidence that surpasses all understanding, circumstances, knowledge, troubles, doubt, anxiety, and fear(s). May you find comfort, solace, and assurance today and everyday. Amen.
 
 
The dynamic blessedness of glorious CHANGE is not defined by the presence of adversity, tension, or disappointment, but CHANGE is an indicator that the gracious and loving presence of GOD'S grace and presence of The Holy Spirit has a greater calling, responsibility, and destiny for you as well as your life! Yes, be encouraged! Your circumstances have not defeated you! You are not a write-off! Do not give up! CHANGE is on the way! CHANGE is your gift!
 
 
Trust not in what you see and place not your treasures in earthen vessels, but have faith as "faith is the substance of things hoped and the presence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1. God is still on the throne!
 
Take heart, comfort, and solace, because "the race is not given to the swift, but to he that endures to the end!
 
My prayer for you is the grace, the wisdom, and the blessedness of Glorious & Divine CHANGE.
 
Below are two brief Acronyms for Change. Read Them, Reflect Upon Them, & Rest In Them!
 
 
 
CHANGE IS A PROCESS, NOT AN EVENT
 
 
 
C - Courageous
 
H - Hope
 
A - Affects
 
N - New
 
G - Grace
 
E - Everyday
 
_________________________________________________________________________
 
C - Cultivating
 
H - Human
 
A - Altruism
 
N - Necessitates
 
G - Growth
 
E - Everyday

ACRONYM FOR PEACE



PEACE


Beloved of the Most High: You have not happened upon this meditation neither by accident nor by default. You were lead here by a gracious and loving FORCE that is greater than you. You have been seeking an answer(s)...a response. Stay a while and rest. Be still...

May you be blessed with the gift of peace on this day; even right now as you read and reflect upon this quiet meditation. May the LORD grant you "divine peace." Peace that surpasses all understanding, circumstances, knowledge, troubles, doubt, anxiety, and fear(s). May your heart be comforted and your mind placed at ease. May you be granted peace!

Peace. Peace. Sweet Peace Beloved.

Peace is not defined by the absence of adversity, challenges, or disappointments, but peace is the gracious and loving presence of GOD'S grace and presence of The Holy Spirit to sustain you and enable you to stand, yes, even right now, when circumstances would have otherwise overtaken and defeated you! You are not written off! Your circumstances have not defeated you! Do not give up!

Trust not in what you see and place not your treasures in earthen vessels, but have faith as "faith is the substance of things hoped and the presence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1. God is still on the throne!

Take heart, comfort, and solace, because "the race is not given to the swift, but to he that endures to the end!  

My prayer for you is the grace and wisdom of PEACE.

Below are 3 brief Acronyms for Peace. Read Them, Reflect Upon Them, & Rest In Them!
