It was a sunny Saturday morning. I trailed my friends around a lovely suburban garden center on a sunny Saturday morning. More enthusiastic gardeners than I, they examined odd varieties of ferns and rusty garden sculptures while I daydreamed. Old college friends, we gather every once in a while to talk for hours and tour around spots of interest while our husbands go off to regress into their long-ago frat boy selves, to everyone’s entertainment, especially theirs.
If you just want to sit in front of your computer waiting for sales without doing anything or even going at it half cocked, then I’ve got some bad news for you, you’re never going to be successful on line.
Portable dishwashers have wheels on them. You can roll your portable dishwasher to the storeroom rack if you don’t plan on using it for a while (and would rather opt for hand-washing). It’s also much easier to maneuver, for those who plan on moving to a new home in the near future.
Many people — especially in traditional, old-line congregations — are afraid of prophetic ministry. They’re afraid that people who see themselves as “prophets” are going to start writing “new Scripture” like Joseph Smith did. But it’s very important to notice that the Apostle Peter commands everyone who serves the Body through “speaking gifts”, to “speak as God’s oracle”. [1 Peter 3.11] “Oracle” means “God’s mouthpiece”. This fear that the “new” truths the Spirit brings to us every day can be contrary to that which has already been revealed in Scripture, is not at all unreasonable. But this fear can be dispelled by the fact that what the Holy Spirit speaks through us are in fact ancient truths — ancient truths brought into our lives today with a fresh Wind of illumination. They are “old and new”!
Well what do you want? Is it in alignment with your present path? Are you willing to take the steps to obtain it? It’s all storeroom rack in your power. Look inside and make a clear picture of exactly what you want. Yes exactly! Not just I want a Hummer, but rather I will have a 2007 Grey Hummer with every gadget known to the car industry in the next 6 months. Be specific as possible. Feel the feeling. Live in the moment of reveling in the beauty of your imagination.
You can never hope to expand your mind and use it efficiently without taking control of it. You have to direct and discipline its activity. To take advantage of your brains capacity you must learn to concentrate and develop your memory and recall. Do not be affected too easily by or be at the mercy of what is happening in your environment. You must learn to control your reactions to things and make them what you choose them to be. Many times when we react to things we end up regretting our behaviours. As you learn and experience things you will become much more understanding, efficient, capable, knowledgeable amongst other things. As your ability for mental control grows you will also develop an understanding of yourself and others that is necessary for your growth as someone who is thinking big.
When high school came, the Schwinn did not see much action anymore. My mind was on other things. In a way, I had out grown it just as I had that little Chinese red one from years before. But I’ll never forget the fun I had with these bikes or the feeling of independence they gave me. Too bad today’s kids don’t have the freedom to enjoy riding bikes the way I did. However, my grandkids seem to enjoy the biking stories even though they’ll never experience these adventures themselves.
