constantly being served up.God's allotment
is shared and stone soup is the garden of Eden's fruit.
We are all waiting for our name to be called for the
class to know we have arrived for the lesson.
The lesson is incomplete without the ingredients we bring to it.
last night late I tried again to make progress with the
tune from the exam book for grade1 piano.
Andante has lots of pencil note from Barbara's encouragements.
i was so simply pleased to get through it with both hands coordinating
I felt i had taken my feet off the bottom of the cauldron and
that my stone self was adding flavour.The gathered stones as
currency from my health hopeful walking.
Rooting bringing the beach combed memories to life
you have to splash before you can perfect the stroking of the water.
This afternoon Ted's wife Leslie has agreed to my sharing how I cut
and paste uploaded and found youtube clips into the facebook
pot of sharing and caring and communicating in this secular potentially
Holy Spirit infused soup .And how to blog morning page thoughts
to place on facebook and how to link the blogs to facebook
for sharing with the world and so how to listen out for
stone soup parables of unity.
Stone Soup was bought in a children's book called
Usborne illustrated stories at Bedtime
retold that is good for when iI searched and i do suggest you google search for your self
there are dances eductional organisations and animations of this story .
A spaceman version,German soldiers oriental classic tale.
it is a Jesus style parable companionable bread and wine
for seeing sharing the body of the living God.
I think of the two quotes form my friend Dr Frederick franck
'iwould like too thank those that were my teachers and still are'
'i believe in nothing but God' i think of the two church challenging
john's gospel quotes that my heart has soaked in
'i will be in them my father will be in me and they
will know perfect unity that they are loved as i am loved'
'i have others who are not of this flock
and they know their author's voice'
What i do or do not do
for the least of one of these
i do or do not do for
my author Father Dad daddy,
So Andante gets reviewed in its simmering to tell
whether it needs some salt to meet the
standards of common soupiness or will i fail from not
picking over the mung beans to remove the grit?
beside me are some stones that i have not yet simmered
the others stories and illustration within the bedtime tales they seem familiar but i will look again
a fat book given to me by the staff of Southport college when i nwas made to walk the plank
i must have mutineed bu i was reading a reassuring John Ortberg title at the time
'If you want to walk on water you have to get out of the boat.'
Simon Schama's Power of Art
I agree and would repond with the mustard seed nutshell coracle
i cling to the gentlility of playfulness
i stand inEden listening out for my da's voice to call me for his soup serving
nevertheless this is as yet an unread book i should take it out on my next artist's date
a diary from cah bar has on the front of it TEAMWORK
together we can achieve the extrordinary
Les tres riches heures de mrs mole by ronald searle whish i must taste soon excellent book
art's power in the face of cancer faith love and putting into the sup all that one has talent! gift! chasrisma!

reread basic principles and artists prayer
1. Creativity is the natural order of life. Life is energy: pure creative energy.
2. There is an underlying, in-dwelling creative force infusing all of life -- including ourselves.
3. When we open ourselves to our creativity, we open ourselves to the creator's creativity within us and our lives.
4. We are, ourselves, creations. And we, in turn, are meant to continue creativity by being creative ourselves.
5. Creativity is God's gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God.
6. The refusal to be creative is self-will and is counter to our true nature.
7. When we open ourselves to exploring our creativity, we open ourselves to God: good orderly direction.
8. As we open our creative channel to the creator, many gentle but powerful changes are to be expected.
9. It is safe to open ourselves up to greater and greater creativity.
10. Our creative dreams and yearnings come from a divine source. As we move toward our dreams, we move toward our divinity.
O Great Creator,
We are gathered together in your name
That we may be of greater service to you
And to our fellows.
We offer ourselves to you as instruments.
We open ourselves to your cereativity in our lives.
We surrender to you our old idea's
We welcome your new and more expansive ideas.
We trust that you will lead us.
We trust that it is safe to follow you.
We know that you created us and that creativity
Is your nature and our own.
We ask you to unfold in our lives
According to your plan, not our low self worth.
Help us to believe that it is not too late
And that we are not too small or too flawed
To be healed~
By you and through each other ~ and made whole.
Help us to love one another,
To nurture each other's unfolding,
To encourage each others growth,
And understand each others fears.
Help us to know we are not alone,
That we are loved and lovable.
Help us to create as an act of worship to you.
