Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Perception and Acceptance!

Have you ever had one of those days when everything seems to be perfect, yet you're still not quite sure.  As we go through life we so often times try to do our best to be recognized for the good works of the spirit.  We trust in judgement always for a better day!  Our hopes! Our dreams! And all things we hold near and dear can sometimes be summed up in the simplicity of perception.  Like Apples and Pears; or Oranges and Tangerines.  Both fruits; both similar! Yet not quite the same.  Can expectations be summed up through the acceptances in life we make.  Can positions be ratified through innate understanding?  Are we not better to look for the right in all things?  Forsaking what appears to be adverse.  Can time really be the cure to a contrived state of serenity and bliss!  Is it really better to sometimes just truly go it alone.  Are our tomorrows really what's left of our yesterdays!  Is hope better spent on those who care?  Or should we extend the hand of the equality of love to all those who appear needy to receive it!  You often hear people who go along their way in life say, it's better to give than to receive!  I happen to be one of those who truly believes that! When we give to others ir-regards of our selves, our spirits are refreshed.  And our lives are renewed in faith! The teachings of Christ are not only based in perception, but rather acceptance as well.  His walk to the River Jordan, where he was refreshed in God!   His travels to Galilee, where he healed the masses!  And His prayers in faith at the Mount of Olives.  Where He pleaded with God for redemption to receive the blessing of grace.  Only  to be manifested in grace himself!  There are so many things in the world that seem way far beyond our  comprehension.  And yet we acquire to know why!  Even in the face of the dimmest of hope.  Because like sitting on a porch!  Some see it as a stoop;  while others might call it an easement; and even others still something a bit fancified like a veranda.   But in truth they're all the same thing.  A place of observation and relaxation!  I call my porch a veranda!  Because I like the feel of the open space.  And the thought takes me places I might otherwise not be able to go!  But I guess when we think about it, we're kinda already there.  We just need to focus on which is the right direction.  On my account I choose to keep my focus on God, for the love of Christ Jesus!  My lord, savior, and King!  Because in truth we will always find the light!  And in God we will always find the grace of Jesus!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante,
