What does this all mean?





Being Fit

. . . .

Not that I have already attained or have already been perfected, but I follow after it so that I may lay hold of that for which I was seized by Christ Jesus. 

I do not count myself to have attained, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 

I press toward the goal to the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

_ Paul


living water


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

God is Still Speaking

We are part of who God is in the world.

Truly, we are the hands and the feet and the heart of Christ, and as people of God we are called to make a difference in the world; we are also called to make a difference in our own lives.

Spiritual growth is something that happens to us when we apply ourselves to an understanding of who God is, and how God manifests and shows up in our lives.

God is Love.

And that's another cool thing our Senior Pastor shared.

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.

Oh, The Bliss


Be transformed by the renewing of your MIND, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


My Jesus did not speak english. Surprise! Surprise! My Jesus spoke life, the central theme of which is love, its entire purpose wholeness - mind, body and spirit - our entire being balancing toward the divine state - bliss! - the story our Lord Jesus was born to become.

Welcome to phenomenal life-thriving strategies delivered from the lean side of the mountain and embraced by many on this wondrous journey of life and learning - the continuation of our Extraordinary Adventure series.


This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine.

from a Childhood Song


"How do we cultivate young people who have the idealism, and the ambition, and the drive, and the passion to start their own journey to bring about meaningful and positive social change?"

You are altogether beautiful, my love;
    there is no flaw in you.

King Solomon

What are your core strengths?
Share your reality.

"I am the door. If anyone enters through Me, that one will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.   The thief does not come, except to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." Jesus, Son of Man, Prince of Glory, Redeemer.


a work of outstanding artistry, skill, or workmanship.

tour de force


Who made the mountains? Who made the trees? Who made the rivers flow to the sea? Who sends the rain when the earth is dry? Who made the flowers to bloom in the spring? Who made the song for the robins to sing? Who hung the moon in the starry sky? Yes, all that and way much more! Our mind. Our body. Our spirit. Our soul.

What stereotype has you bound?


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."

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true 
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

You raise me up to more than I can be.



Phenomenal Life Strategies

First Things First: "Make Your Own Bed"

Phenomenal life-affirming, life-thriving, life-uplifting strategies are being delivered by Our Lord Jesus. Action Plan: first things first, "Oh, The Bliss! Make Your Own Bed." And what a bed this is! Jesus gets personal with me. My 'inter-personal' beatitudes on blast! Oh, what love! (What about you?)

Blessed are
the 'Poor In Spirit'
for theirs . . . IS . . .
the Kingdom of Heaven!

Welcome to my 'inter-personal' share!
  1. We, as a people (as communities), are privy to facts. We have facts. Rarely all of the facts! Nevertheless, we have access to a certain set of facts.
  2. People in general (no matter who we are), each of us (in particular), no matter the level of our intelligence, decide what facts we want to believe and what facts we prefer to disregard.

Together, this is a reality of human behavior - saved or unsaved; grateful or selfrighteous, humble or proud! (One is welcome to pretend otherwise, believe otherwise, or conclude otherwise. Let there be no argument! Life is a discovery process.)

  • Many of us are often disposed to asserting it is those 'other' people that are disregarding accessible facts, and that we are not! Ha-ha-ha! Okay!
  • It is also established that many of us use intelligence not necessarily to discover the truth (though we make that claim) but to maniupulate the information to suit 'prior beliefs' and 'present purpose.' We see what we want to see, hear what we want to hear!

True or not, such a reality is no excuse. The fact is, the decision on how to process available facts and information is firmly ours individually and collectively to exercise.

In other words, by general default, our bed is what it is and we play a significant role in its current state. Jesus reveals my bed then shows me how to make it.

Want a peek?

Here goes!




An IMPORTANT Reminder, especially if you were not along on this Adventure Series from the beginning (which I recommend to you - click here): THIS PRESENTATION IS NOT A SERMON! THIS IS NOT A REVELATION OF WHAT GOD TOLD anyone on this journey TO TELL YOU! NO, NO-WAY, NOPE! NEVER! This is a sweet peek into the awesome relationship we enjoy. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! This is my whole-hearted encouragement to you. This is me saying, 'You are awesome! You are human! God made you and me human. And if you don't agree, that's fine too.' This is me saying, 'the devil's operatives will drive you crazy with mis-appropriated scriptures and other 'lies' and deceptions to keep you (intentionally or unintentionally) away from your authentic (genius) journey - if you let them.' Don't! (My recommendation.) This is your life - only YOU CAN LIVE IT. Live it well. (My recommendation.) I have NO judgments for you. No condemnations! No warnings! Your real story is valuable to me (in particular) and to us as a whole. Builds me up. You see, this thing here is real personal! And exciting! This thing here is not a recruitment to some religion! There are many others who are doing a great job of that! We are sharing our experience of life! Our awesome adventure. We are uplifting each other. We are learning to love and putting it into practice, because we are loved and in love. We are already redeemed, reunited, reinvigorated, and being groomed (and if you want to know how that became our reality, investigate this series from its inception). Ooooh-wee! Tags are not our thing!




Okay, where were we?!

Oh, yes! A vital relationship! An awesome relationship. Making the bed! First thing after rising! Each and every day! It takes understanding. It takes commitment. It takes practice. It sets the stage for EVERYTHING! (For me!) Try it, see if you like it.

Our bed: Oh, The Bliss!

Generally, in the wake of over use and misuse, 'blessed' has lost much of its original shine and potency, recoverable (to me) by reviving its original sense and meaning, "Oh, The Bliss!"

Yes! Yes! Yes! Oh, The Bliss! Like a new birth! Oh, The Bliss! Like that first stretch - ahhh - awaking into a welcomed new day, after an awesome night, another grand adventure on tap. Oh, The Bliss! Like knowing EVERYTHING is ALRIGHT! Oh, The Bliss! Like, oh-yeah, let imaginations run wild. Oh, The Bliss! YES! Rising out of a sweet rest, readied for this fresh new day! That's this bed - my bed. Our bed? Oh, The Bliss! Jesus has awakened us into a newer reality - a renewed mindset - a very peculiar sense of what already is - CURRENT ON-GOING State of BLISS! (Too pollyana-ish?) No! A vitality. A state of real assurance CENTERED in the actualities of the HUMAN CONDITION!

  • Acceptance of who one is
  • Recognition of what is

Deliberate action: Balance, Focus, Rhythm. In other words, see what is for what it is, ACCEPT WHAT IS for what it is (no less, no more!); focus, seek balance, establish a desired rhythm - your rhythm. Create Flow. Fly. Let's give this a try.


mourning? know you will be comforted!
meek? know you will inherit the earth!
righteous hunger? know you will be filled!
merciful? know you will be shown mercy!
pure in heart? know you will see God!
peace-maker? know you are a child of God!
persecuted for being these? know YOURS ALREADY IS the kingdom of God!

This is the bed we choose to sleep in. This is the bed we choose to rise from. This is the bed we choose to make and remake each day.

It is a choice - not a command nor a demand nor a reward.

It is a smart choice. Peiod!

Blessed are
the 'Poor In Spirit'
for theirs . . . IS . . .
the Kingdom of Heaven!





"I give them eternal life. They shall never perish, nor shall anyone snatch them from My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them from My Father’s hand. My Father and I are one." All things are possible. Start with what is just outside your comfort zone. Believe. Act upon it. Step outside and breathe.

WORD TO THE WISE: Make Your Own Bed.

There is something about making one's own bed first thing in the morning as part of preparing one's self to start the day. Something unique. A kind of settling of the mind into something new. A kind of setting of the rhythm for the day. Something luxurious. Something comfortable. Something inviting. Something engendering a kind of confidence: the knowledge that when this day is done one is able to drop one's self into the luxury of welcome comfort; a mental gathering of the seeds to be planted for the day; a mental sighting of the soil in which one's selected seeds can germinate. Something that sparks one's courage. A kind of sliding open of clarity's curtain.

What is this something?

Let's give 'making the bed' a try. Let's see if we can devise a proper name for this daily opening act. (All the more worthy an act to engage if one considers one's self 'not a morning person.')

Awake, Oh, Child!

Make YOUR bed! (The Admiral recommends it)

  • Literally
  • Metaphorically
  • Emotionally
  • Spiritually

STAY BIG: something to GRAPPLE or GRIP


A. THOUGHT: God loves the prostitute as much as the pope!

B. Plucked from 'What's Going On?'


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