"Good morning world. Today is Sunday and that means (as I am taking another trip into my history) I am opening my eyes to a glorious sunrise, getting ready to go to church. Yes my day is beginning just as yours on the other side of the globe soon will be ending where you have already worship the Lord.
And if you have found yourself somewhere in between today, I pray that no matter where you are or how your day has been going that you too will take a moment and reflect then praise the Lord, who loves and created you.
In the same thought, since it is also Sunday that means I get to share another private insight attached to another quote from my first novel with you that the Lord has also helped me create, and write.
In doing that if you have not already read my book you can purchase it right here.
By doing that you can enjoy the whole fictional story as "AT CIRCLES BEND" we will be taking another sneak peek into my leading lady’s world as we are again listening to Angelica share her life with you, as she is saying…..
“Understandably, in that great fortune reversal that we recently suffered through, I was wound up like a stretched pocket watch, just as tightly as I possibly could have been. Yes I similarly felt like a jumping bean, on scalding concrete facing the anticipation of a promised abundantly blessed, financially bestowed life overseas, or the terrible annihilation of exploding.
So, in the known goal of not blowing up, and my firm objective of keeping us off the food stamp line, as the plane’s door violently hit me in the butt from behind, I tried not to think about the screaming grandma, or the new nightmare I had leading to our demise. I instead concentrated on the great wealth we found, and huge paycheck forcing us away from our homeland of America luring us forward to Saudi Arabia.
In that contradiction of prediction I boarded the jet that shut me off to my old ways of days. Yes in that shut down I turned my mind to the promise of a better time arriving, and as I replaced grandma’s frantic threats with happy promises coming from Conner, I was anticipating a great future waiting ahead for us a world away.
Of course taking that trip I hated what I had done to my dear mother-in-law, and tragically putting myself in her horrible position, I prayed the same retribution would not happen to me on another day far away after my new born son Coby had grown up. So, in all ways I dearly resented and then detested being haunted by grandmas wailing pitiful pleas and that old recurring grave robber thought I had “dung” something terribly wrong.
Yes I sincerely hoped being a, “dung bug” was not in my future for what I had “dung” to her. Of course in another reflection I realized if anybody was coming back as a putrid excrement ant, it would have been Conner, because after all, the whole stupid trip and moving overseas thing was his stinky idea, certainly not mine!
On the other hand, of choice, or no choice, taking that trip, as I tripped and had fallen down, I felt I might have been coming back as a “dung bug slug” too. Yes I was “bugged” with a creepy contemplation, that what we had “dung” to her was horribly wrong.
Yet somewhere in my miserably tricked mind, I also felt we were doing the right thing, as the long flight was smooth. Of course again on the other side of hard knocked dreams, anticipating a rough landing I wondered if my insight was right.
Hence, in that tough initiation, no matter how hard I tried I could not get my distraught mother in law’s angry, contorted tortured face out of my mind, or the traumatized thought I really screwed up out of it either. So I stayed up the whole time during the long flight, watching over my child day and night praying what we were doing was right and that decision would not come back and bite me.
No there was no rest for the weary, as I was listening to Maydett’s sobs ringing in my ears. Yes, I recollected that date like a memory burned into my soul’s history, searing my eyes impossible to forget.”
Thank you for enjoying my novel, and now for a brief inspirational thought that connects my book to your life. In this quote the reader can actually feel the pain in Angelica’s life, as she is struggling with doing the right thing, fearful that she is really doing something wrong.
In that thought have you ever felt like that?
Have you ever been forced to hurt somebody that you loved by leaving them behind. Have you ever wondered what you are doing? Have you ever wondered in going somewhere if you are going to the right place? Have you ever wondered in the retribution coming that you fear and don't want, yet know you deserve, that you might come back as a dung bug.
Well if you have not felt that way as you have been tripping and falling through life, that time is coming, because all of us at one time or the other are forced to go down paths to places we don’t want to .
Yes all of us have hurt somebody by leaving them. And all of us have wondered where we have been, or where we are going. In those thoughts as we have been, and are taking our trips, tripping along our way, we have all felt like dung bugs, as we have done things that were wrong.
Of course the good news has always been by following the Lord, the way we are going, and paths we are crossing (yes even including the hearts we have been breaking) all have a purpose.
Therefore the purpose of the trip and of our tripping also falling down, is the Lords to know.
Yes that pathway is just our direction to faithfully go, as everything that we are doing has always been a guided part of our souls history, at circles bend, as The Lord has been taking our heart back home.” Joslin Fitzgerald
Your Prayer of Salvation
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today,and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way. Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world everyday, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
In saying that Jesus I believe, that you were born on Christmas Day. I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night .
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I will not go to my endless grave.In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Bibical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received ever lasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior,
Absolutley I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
