April 18, 2014 Mother


‘Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the Sanhedrin who was himself looking forward to the kingdom of God, came and boldly went in to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body.’ Mark 15:43

Good mornin’ Beloved,
She watched them detach His body. She had watched his murder. Helpless. Numb. She stood. Watching.
Someone would have placed a shawl across her shoulders…offered to walk her home. She stayed. Frozen.
Her son.
Her baby.
She had given birth to Him alone.
She had been promised His Divinity.
The child with whom she and her husband had fled to avoid a slaughter of the innocents.
She held her son in that stable, radiant Child of promise to the world – now dead.
The divine dream, slaughtered with her Jesus.
She watched-
her gentle healer,
her promised son of God Almighty,
her knowing child,
dragged through hell on earth.
DearOne, we do not witness the Passion with intellect … or even eyes, ears, or heart. We share in it all the way down into the cells of our grief, all the way down into all the courage our bones can muster.
We share the depth of grief as His mother.
She stayed.
She stared.
Eyes on the cross.

I am a blessed woman. Wife, daughter, mother of 3sunz, sister, author of 'Spirit Move Me: Memos to you that sway with the Holy Spirit', Jesus loving Oklahoma girl, I love exploring truth, early morning is my favorite time of day, teacher/trainer, lover of books and news and fascinated with butterflies, extreme right brained pondering creature; enjoy helping others find meaning, tap into their own inspiration and intuition to work more effectively, and overcome struggles and the rising and falling of life in the everyday grind and in small business/micro business worlds. Blessed with the crazy notion, the wild-eyed foolishness, and the madcap belief in the simple idea that I might help one to make a decision that makes a difference in the world . . . as stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote…“To know one life breathed easier because you lived, this is to have succeeded.” I get to use my small business background as a former owner of a Flower Shop and Hallmark Store and former co-owner of Disability Specialists, LLC, to help folks build dreams. I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday. My work centers on the belief that inside each of us lives a mesmerizing soul waiting to be revealed. Every day we can choose to trust the magic of our calling and take those unconventional moves to unlock an enchanted journey. I serve as Business and Industry Director and Business Development Services Coordinator at Canadian Valley Technology Center in Chickasha, Oklahoma.
