Dreamers Hill

Run with Patience


 But the fruit of the Spirit is
and self-control.
There is no law (Jewish Law) against such things.


- from a letter to Galatians


The Lord has set us free so that we may enjoy the benefits of freedom.

So keep on standing firm in it, and stop putting yourselves under the yoke of slavery again. 


Dreamers Hill


Blessed is the one who remains steadfast under trial.


Renew a steadfast spirit within me.


Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with diligence and ardor.

Abigail Adams

There is no barrier to success which diligence and perseverance cannot hurdle.

Oscar Micheaux

I have never had to face anything that could overwhelm the native optimism and stubborn perseverance I was blessed with.

Sonia Sotomayor

Be always humble, gentle, and patient. Show your love by being tolerant with one another.





Being Fit

Do not neglect the gift that is in you.

_ 1 Timothy



living water


I am made in the image of God, not your image of God.

Each and everyone of us has a different story.

Even the disciples of Jesus had a different story. They weren't all alike. They responded differently to how God made God's Self real in their lives.

Each of us is a story of God's Grace.

Some of us would even say. God's grace saved our lives literally.

We go into the world and we share those stories, because it is in the story of our lives that we are built up in our faith and in our experience.

Fetching Water

And that's another cool thing my Senior Pastor told us.



Love - Martin Luther King Jr

Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Love is Patient


"We urge you to admonish those who are idle, cheer up those who are discouraged, and help those who are weak. Be patient with everyone."


You've heard it said, patience is a virtue. Is that the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?

Do you also believe (or have you concluded) the statement, patience is a virtue, to be a biblical quotation - say - a fine declaration from the wise one or a prophet or Our Lord or the oft innocently (more often recklessly) misquoted and misapplied prodigious letter-writer, Paul?

Such an error would not automatically dismiss any value embeded in that statement. Would you agree? So what is patience, if we've established our subject on the surgeon's table - Love Is Patient - to be a wortthwile biblical truth, and if in fact a core value of the sweet life, the fruitful life, the joyful life, the well-earned life, the heavenly life, is LOVE?

What is patience? What does it mean? What is its intention?
{Clear Out The Cabinet - Pause - Reflect}

It might well be our predominant sense of patience is one of w a i t i n g, of not being in a hurry, of hanging out for a while - a very long while - that is, until we are accidentally bumped off that dusty ledge by this speedy little biblical encouragement: run with patience!

Ooops! This plot thickens. Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. Now how shall we put Humpty Dumpty back together again? Hmm? Is that even possible? I believe we can. Let's see.

  PATIENCE (noun) defined
  1. tolerant and even-tempered perseverance
  2. quiet, steady perseverance; even-tempered care; diligence
  3. an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay
  4. the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like

Aha! The very word suggests a quality of being. It sugesss possession of a certain set of characteristics (namely: perseverence, diligence, even-temperedness, steadfastness, tolerance, quietness) that are unchanged even in the most trying of times, whatever those trials. Yes, its very meaning is in its language. No mystery at all. Look.

Do you notice a certain oft repeated 'something' missing from its characteristics? Let's take a second look. See?

Is there any value to this more enlightened quality of being?

Warning: Do not SIT on that ledge!

What have we learned?

If one must wait then wait patiently, not idly. PATIENCE does not mean waiting. Waiting does not mean PATIENCE. Yes, I know: it is not easy to escape from the slavery of false definitions draped with clanging chains and ringing symbols at every turn. But it CAN be done. Now that we have the key. It is up to us to remain rid of those limiting chains. We've been already set free. (In the presence of any doubt we encourage exploration of our Golgotha Series).



Love is patient. Patience is not a virtue; it is a complexity of virtues. Indeed! Love is . . . patient.


Come, let us all be friends for once, 
Let us make life easy on us, 
Let us be lovers and loved ones,
The earth shall be left to no one.

Yunus Emre


"It is not our experience that makes our lives, it is what we do with it"

When I am down, and, oh, my soul, so weary
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be.

You raise me up to more than I can be.



Being fully functional & wholly human!

Love is . . .

Ah, love!

Which is it for you - in this moment: a presence or a pursuit?

There is a difference, we've found, a difference I am suggesting is worthy of note.

We make note of that difference, lest in an unmindful laxity the joys of one sabotage the beauty of the other, or the sweetness of one overshadows the challenges of the other, and confusion reigns. The difference is huge.

I'd like to tell you a story. However, I'd rather wait and trust you will be patient with me while I share this lovely lullaby alongside a gentle reminder: eros - the 'lyric fuel of imagination' - can just as sweetly educate the mind as it does the body, both of which you and I are most wisely endowed. Would you agree?


Lay your sleeping head, my love,
Human on my faithless arm;
Time and fevers burn away
Individual beauty from
Thoughtful children, and the grave
Proves the child ephemeral:
But in my arms till break of day
Let the living creature lie,
Mortal, guilty, but to me
The entirely beautiful.

Soul and body have no bounds:
To lovers as they lie upon
Her tolerant enchanted slope
In their ordinary swoon,
Grave the vision Venus sends
Of supernatural sympathy,
Universal love and hope;
While an abstract insight wakes
Among the glaciers and the rocks
The hermit's carnal ecstasy.



"Knowledge that takes you not beyond yourself is far worse than ignorance."
Elif Shafak.
