Art In Motion…

A friend of mine once told me, Lucas, you are Art. For those of you out there whose name really is Art, I apologize, I am not trying to be you. What was meant by this was, I am a living work for art. As precious as something that is in a gallery in France, I am a piece that is timeless, and priceless, and most of all, worthy of being on display. Continue reading “Art In Motion…”

Clay

This word came to Jeremiah from the LORD:
Rise up, be off to the potter’s house;
there I will give you my message.
I went down to the potter’s house and there he was,
working at the wheel.
Whenever the object of clay which he was making
turned out badly in his hand,
he tried again,
making of the clay another object of whatever sort he pleased.
Then the word of the LORD came to me:
Can I not do to you, house of Israel,
as this potter has done? says the LORD.
Indeed, like clay in the hand of the potter,
so are you in my hand, house of Israel. Jer 18:1-6

I am this piece of clay. Continue reading “Clay”

In Service

“Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28

If you have ever been waiting on a service, like public transportation, and watched as a bus or a train whizzed by you with a sign saying something to the effect “Out of Service”, you have known frustration. Continue reading “In Service”

Difficult Tasks

Moses said to the people:
“If only you would heed the voice of the LORD, your God,
and keep his commandments and statutes
that are written in this book of the law,
when you return to the LORD, your God,
with all your heart and all your soul.

“For this command that I enjoin on you today
is not too mysterious and remote for you.
It is not up in the sky, that you should say,
‘Who will go up in the sky to get it for us
and tell us of it, that we may carry it out?’
Nor is it across the sea, that you should say,
‘Who will cross the sea to get it for us
and tell us of it, that we may carry it out?’
No, it is something very near to you,
already in your mouths and in your hearts;
you have only to carry it out.” Dt 30:10-14

I took a few days off from writing. I honestly could not find the words to express exactly how I was feeling about everything and anything. Since the last time I wrote something, the United States have practically been on fire. Tensions among everyone have run very high, and it seems that we are more polarized than ever before. That may be true. With the news coming at us immediately now, we are feeling the stress of situations in almost real time, which is causing anxiety levels to fly off the chart.
