A Clouded Mind

When the religious views of others interpose between us and the primary experience of Jesus as the Christ, we become unconvinced and unpersuasive travel agents handing out brochures to places we have never visited.

(From the Ragamuffin Gospel)

I don't know that I've had a chance to thank you for the many times you have blessed me with your surprise visits :) There is a quiet strength in you brother. When you share your heart, when you drop by with a note of encouragement, I feel my arms held up... supported in the battle.

Today's post was perfect for me. This morning, I heard Father's whisper to eat and drink for myself what I so crave in the experience of others.

Bless you my friend.

Silent Wings,

Your thanks are received with a heart of thanks!

I love what my wife says to me from time to time, Richard, the only thing you've got going for you is Jesus!

I now receive that as an honour, as it reveals to me in my perpetual weakness His glorious and perfect strength.

I have been and continue to be so very enriched as our Father expresses Himself to me through your wonder-struck heart for Him.
