I read this commentary on US politics.

Yup– republican & democratic presidents have been two wings of the same predatory bird…
AND hope exists. Another article I read the same day:

I don’t know that I agree w/ anyone 100%. I do know that more and more people are thinking, learning, and growing. Some of them are even changing behaviors– something more difficult than the other 3 combined.
YHWH told me, “Find the good, green spaces. Touch it. Make it grow.
It’s not just about plants. It’s people, too.
You can’t break up all the asphalt that covers an entire planet with a jack-hammer: your shoulders would give out before you could make much head-way.
You CAN plant seeds, and find the blackberry & ivy that have already found a crack to grow in. Those plants that grow up through the asphalt are strong. Help them grow.
Yes, there’s a horrible conspiracy going on somewhere… it’s even trace-able via corporate connections & ownership. Mathematically provable “conspiracy theory.”
AND the truth is that $ is *not* god. Only an idol. An idol whose hands and head are threatened.
“He has shown thee, O man, what is good, and what YHWH requires of you: but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy Elohim.”
If you’re given a jack-hammer, by all means, have at it! But when you’re spent, remember to plant the strong sprouting seeds in the wake.
Healthy plants produce seed after their own kind. Unhealthy plants will eventually die and become fertilizer for the next generation. Eventually, hybrids and GMO’s will die out. There will be a new generation to feed. Blackberries & ivy & “good, green spaces” may come in handy.

Oyster mushrooms break down petroleum & petrochemicals. Zeolite clay absorbs radioactive particles. The world is designed to regenerate. We can help, and it can help us to survive, and eventually thrive.

Behold, the hand of YHWH is not so short That it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull That it cannot hear. –Isaiah 59:1

YHWH said to Moses, “Has YHWH’s hand grown short? Now you will see whether my word will happen to you or not.” –Numbers 11:23
The arm of YHWH is longer than “the long arm of the law.”
No less true today than it was for the Hebrew children in ancient times.

It’s still reality, even when the corporate monsters loom large. Eventually, it’s all just words on paper that say a corporation exists. Paper rots. Life is designed to continue.

Yesterday, I went for a walk to “decompress” a bit. Walked through “The Big, Grassy Field.” The Big, Grassy Field is a vacant lot ’round the corner from us, where nobody sprays anything, and all the wild herbs grow, each in their season… and where everyone dumps whatever trash is in their hands along the path through it. The kids don’t seem to notice the garbage, though. They’re too busy LOVING the grass and herbs and free space to run and play. Their world is right whenever we take a break, or have a reward and go to The Big, Grassy Field.

At any rate, I was walking said path through said Big, Grassy Field, and I registered being “on the edge”– like I could get angry about the smog and asphalt and fast food smells and society in general and all, or I could focus on something good. I felt YHWH telling me, “Focus on the good, green things.” I found all the plants with their colors and flowers… “Touch the good, green things.” I touched the herbs. Normally, I’m more a “use the herbs” type, rather than a “touch the herbs” type LOL!  Found some to bring home & show the kids– different stages of development of horsetail (which one of my kiddos promptly ID’d when I got home, and from the most difficult sample, first :-D). I felt more “grounded.” I felt YHWH saying, “When you can, touch the good, green things, and make them grow.”  It wasn’t just about plants. I could see the vision of strong, healthy plants, breaking up pavement and tearing down the mess we’ve made… but it’s not just nature. It’s building the “good, green things” in people, where I find them, and “making the good, green things grow, when I can.” …in difficult relationships… and not-so-difficult ones… in whoever I happen to meet and “touch.” My job is to nurture the “good, green spaces.” …in the children, and in their parents, through my book…(s), blog(s) & what-not. “Find the good, green spaces. Touch it. Make it grow.”
May YHWH richly and abundantly bless you and yours, and may He touch the good, green spaces in all of you, and make it grow.

I wrote a post a while back about the beautiful medicinal properties of Aloe Vera. I am happy to announce that the little girl with the growth on her eye no longer has it. After a couple of months of quasai-daily applications (she’d forget occasionally), the most recent application brought the growth sliding out, onto her finger! So thankful for the directions we’ve been given!!! Todah, YHWH!
