Charis: Subject to Change

IMG_8319

Have you ever read a brilliant quote –and were afraid to post it because the author has made other statements you don’t agree with?

I quoted someone I thought gave a delightfully pithy observation. Giving credit where credit is due, I named the the author, of course. Later someone contacted me saying, “I didn’t know you were a follower of McBarnacle! Are you aware of his eschatological position on the role of kumquats in the millennium, or his opinions on the Publicat party?”

OK. I made that up. But here’s my point: I do not worship human beings or consider any one of them to be right about everything –at least not as right as I am.

When my then three-year old grandson was visiting he asked me what I was making for supper. I told him chicken. He was quite excited because, as he said several times in a…

    Dear Charis, Thank you! Thank you for this! I wonder if in our media age, in which we sit alone with our own devices, people forget to chew, discuss, debate, read more, talk to others, ask for clarification… I am sure that it takes hours to write your posts, read and re-read; tease the words into just the right order and sense, as well as adding your photography and art! Some readers, bless them for reading, think they can like/ unlike, add emojis and/or challenge your ideas, without ever digging deeper, figuring out where their own opinions, bias and facts have come from! I don’t think that we all need to believe the exact same things. I do agree that we need to read, discuss, and “chew more”! I like this post very much! Our God is very great and very worth knowing in deeper ways, which means chewing over the hard stuff and going head-to-head and heart-to-heart with him and with each other. I believe that this is how we encourage and sharpen one another.

    On that note, I am so sorry that I didn’t visit you while you were in the hospital here. Please forgive me! I would love to sit down and have some one to one chats with you. I won’t go through my excuses of why I was unable to come. Please know that I continue to pray for your full recovery! I so enjoy your blog posts and they always give me something to “chew on”! I look forward to some healing in my own life so that I can do writing for more than 15 minutes at a time and artwork too! The projects are getting crowded in my brain! I had another cortisone facet joint injection today and hoping that this helps with so much of the pain and nerve pain going down my arm and into my hand. I have had some success with previous injections and if they can keep me off of all or most of T he prescription meds I was taking, I will be joyful (as will my stomach, liver, kidneys and unfogged brain). Sending hugs, thanks and prayers, Susan

    1. You wrote this on an iPhone? You are much more talented than I.

      I wasn’t in hospital long. They seem to push people through quite quickly now. Frankly, I’ve been told that although entertaining, I’m not at my best when in great pain and/or in a drugged stupor. I hope for an opportunity to visit when both of us are clothed and in our right minds.

      Thank you so much for your encouraging words. I can’t wait until you are well enough to write again. Your poetry is wonderful.
      Grace upon grace upon grace to you.
