Grandpa White Feather / 12-13-18

20181102_114913 I can’t believe its been 2 months since my last entry already, and during that time many good things and much progress has been made. The purpose of this blog site is now two-fold. 1.) It is historical information concerning church history and how we left a “Table relationship” which Christ established, and returned to more of a “Temple relationship”, a relationship I decided I would do my best to leave, and thus was created “Fellowship of the White Path”, a church different. This site is a record of my personal journey to this discovery if you are industrious enough to study it for yourself. The articles are already written, plenty of them, and I do not need to write more. One must simply be willing to dig deeper into this site. But the journey with the Teepee continues, and I will occasionally give updates.

2.) Since the history is already written, and those who want to really know the truth about “Temple or Table” will be willing to search, I have recently been inspired to simply share short excerpts from my journals. I constantly journal. These will simply be spiritual and philosophical type thoughts that I feel worth sharing.

So…perhaps it is “3” fold. 1.) Historical records and personal journey already written. 2.) Quick updates as to the progress of Teepee and spiritual retreat. 3.) Thoughts from the journals of Grandpa White Feather.

And since “thoughts from my journals is the new thing, I will start with that, written just today, and I will leave you with some pictures and a few quick update comments. Assuming anyone is interested in these things I do, we will continue to do this, probably on a very irregular basis, as the Spirit inspires. Here’s my journal for today:

What is the least amount we can be the most happy with? (This question, this thought occurred to me today, worded in just this way.) That amount is worth fighting for. But there is the “Law of Diminishing Return”, and most people fail to heed the wisdom of that Law.

What is the least amount that makes me the most happy? Where is my level of contentment? Am I ever simply content? 

With God, less becomes more. Poverty becomes rich. Jesus told a rich church they were actually poor, and ready to be spewed out of his mouth. He also told a poor church they were actually rich.

God’s Word says godliness with contentment is great gain.

Journal Ends

I spent 2 weeks actually living in the Teepee as very bad November weather rushed in. We even had fifty mile an hour winds one day! But we now have a working wood stove. The bedroom chamber has made progress with floor laid and a swinging hatch door on inside wall to enter it, but I did fail to get it ready soon enough. It’s still not able to be used. And without a nice warm sleeping place, two weeks in the Teepee was enough for now.

I came home to the city house and cut it in half! It’s not a big house to begin with, but with a little innovation, I saw I could save on our utility bills by creating a Murphy bed in our living room. This was an interesting challenge. It’s been very successful. And now I can slowly turn the back half of house into a studio apartment. Completion of this project is way down the road, but for now, just saving on utilities is a big blessing, and I’m actually really enjoying the new set-up.

I end with pictures of teepee and house;  and yes, the pictures will fall off the shelves if I don’t remove them before lowering bed, but it only takes like one minute, and since I’m retired now, it’s certainly not a problem.

The Formula – Part 3

20181001_145252

God Task + Inner Circle + Prayer + Simplicity = God Balance

“You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others.” (Heb. 5:12a) Apostle Paul.

There are many ways of teaching.

It’s been a very busy week at “White Feather Neighborhood”! We have a new look! I’m afraid the color “white” was just too difficult to keep clean. Try as I did, it simply wasn’t working. And that is a message for our need of Christ! He is coming back for a people who’s garments are without spot or blemish in a very dirty world! What a challenging thought! Good luck trying to accomplish that on your own! Only the grace of God in response to the blood of his Son is going to keep us clean unto that day! Make sure we do not take that for granted! Appreciate!!! Lift up your praise and thanksgiving unto Him, or you’re nothing more than a spiritually spoiled brat! (Nuff said, I hope.)

But today’s message is about the second part of our formula, our “Inner Circle”. As you can see, my “God Task” kept me pretty busy and on track this week, as it normally does. Painting that whole Teepee is no small job. But in the midst of all that, what about people? That building is not a person. It has no soul. It has no eternity, but will burn up or rot away one day. Jesus is all about people! So if my God Task does not also include influencing people towards the Kingdom of God, then it is probably not a true God Task. It’s a me, mine, and I task.

Paul said we ought to reach a point of teaching others. Jesus gave the Great Commission of making “disciples” in all nations. None of us are excluded from these expectations, and it is part of God’s great design for keeping us on track! We all need to examine our personal Inner Circle, and I’m not talking about your circle of friends who “influence you”, I’m talking about those “YOU INFLUENCE”.

To narrow it down even further, only those you influence towards Christ! You may have those you are a bad influence on, and you may be pushing them away from Christ, not towards. If so, you need to correct this immediately! Blood on your hands! Do you believe?

So…take a little time here. Make some list of your Inner Circles. Jesus had his 70, his 12, and even his 3. He plainly set the example. This is what Jesus DID. Your numbers may be different. That part doesn’t matter. But as you examine your personal Inner Circles, isolate the ones you are actually influencing into the Kingdom of God. We teach in many ways, but whatever your method is, it should be very plain you are a disciple of Christ, and you disciple others in Christ. This is what Jesus calls “Church”! It’s not about a building. It’s about us walking in unity with our Lord. If you’re not discipling in some form, you’re not having Church according to the way Jesus DID.

I hope to say more on this before we move to the next part of the Formula. But for now, in order for this Formula to work, you must take time to meditate, study, examine your performance in this area. We are all called to minister in some way to some one, and probably several someones. Who are those you can honestly say before God, I am a teacher unto them. I am a disciple who disciples.

Once you realize the magnitude of being a spiritual father or mother to someone, you will also realize the godly balance it will influence in your own living. So work on those lists! This is not a short article. It includes an assignment. I’m keeping the words short so you will hopefully do the assignment. The devil will try to keep you from it. Don’t let him win. It’s not just about YOU. The souls of others hang in the balance. Think about the people who are attached to the names you write down. I do hope there are at least a few names, but if not, then your life is definitely out of balance and mostly about YOU. YOU can change that! Let the only blood on your hands that day be the blood of Jesus! Selah.

Fellowship of the White Path 7/15/18

The Mind Matrix / Helmet of Salvation

BattleisReal-1

We all live in a “Matrix”, a “Mind Matrix” of our choosing, of our own construction.

The movie which made this word so famous, “The Matrix”, in which Morpheus comes to Neo offering him… TRUTH… REALITY… A CHOICE… A FORK IN THE ROAD… Escape from smoke and mirrors illusion… Virtual Reality, but not REAL!…the choice to continue living a LIE… a FALSE ILLUSION so real you could not tell it was not real… a FALSE REALITY you have been convinced is real… or to WAKE UP!… ENTER ENLIGHTENMENT… KNOW TRUTH…FACE REALITY…even though it may be HARD… but live to make a REAL DIFFERENCE!

I’ve been looking forward to this subject.

Welcome to this week’s “Fellowship of the White Path”.

As we just finished looking at the Belt of Truth in God’s Armor of Light, we will now move to the Helmet of Salvation, but how can we examine what protects our head and mind, without realizing we also continue the study of the Belt of Truth?

What is the MATRIX in “YOUR” head?

Anything less than the TRUTH is the beginning of our Fall! What we don’t know can hurt us! Even our innocent unintentional misconceptions can lead to failure! We should always be seeking more TRUTH, greater light, because only TRUTH sets us free!

BUT WHAT IS THE TRUTH YOU HAVE CHOSEN? THAT IS THE WORLD YOU ARE LIVING IN, WHETHER FALSE OR REAL. THAT WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN LED TO “BELIEVE” IS REAL.

There is so much to be considered and discussed on this subject. And what is the truth of it? For that is what we seek. We’re going to spend some time on the Helmet, because the Helmet is a MATRIX, the MIND of CHRIST. Every decision we make, every action we give birth to, has passed through that matrix, OUR MATRIX, before manifesting into the earth and creating, influencing the world we live in, the life we live. If you hate the life you live? Something has to change in that matrix of yours before anything else can get better.

OUR MATRIX IS SO REAL TO US! It may look, feel, taste real. The “Experts” may say this is what’s real. Everything may be shouting at us THIS IS REAL! THIS IS WHAT “I WANT” TO BE REAL! But unless it is also TRUE, then it’s NOT REAL.

Sometimes…for some people, it seems…it is so hard to know what is true, and what is real. A virtual reality is exactly that, because it seems so real! The more “truth-like” it is, the more powerful it is! We are convinced we know the truth. There is no need for change in “us”. Christians are just weak people who cannot face the fact we all die, so they create a “happy place” to go to. But the truth is, there is no God, no heaven, no hell, no life after death, everything is a dead end street. It’s that simple, and that is the “matrix” millions of people live in. It is so real to them! Life, a dead-end street!

I am not one of those people. That is not the matrix I believe. In my world, that matrix is a lie sending a lot of people to a very real hell! Because of my matrix, I am motivated to create such a blog site as this with the message of “AWAKEN”! LIGHT BE! My matrix causes me to walk in Priesthood!

My brain frame is very different from that of mortality. I have a Biblical Matrix in my head which I have spent many years constructing through much study and testing. You may have a Science Matrix. Actually, the two are not necessarily incompatible, not in my matrix, anyway.

But you may have a Worldly Matrix, or materialistic, money hungry, power hungry mind frame. There are a billion different mind frames, perspectives we can have. Every one of us a very unique individual, but in the midst of all this comes a great teacher, a teacher like none other, a teacher very hard to rationally explain his effect on history, and he boldly declares with no hint of doubt or apology that the TRUTH is what sets us free! Hhmmm. (Do we agree with him on this, but ignore many other things he said and did?) If so, you have a “glitch” in your programming.

HIS word challenges us to “be transformed by the renewing of our minds”! (Rom. 12:2) We are even given a list to “think on these things”. (Phil. 4:8) And to have the “Mind of Christ”! (Phil. 2:5-8) We are also told to be Born-Again. To intentionally choose God as our Father if we want connection to our Creator. Whaaat? Many laugh at all this like they laughed at Noah.

But if you’re a Believer of the Bible, then your perspective on everything begins changing. Your brain frame is changing. What you see yourself living is completely different than those who simply walk in flesh and blood. The “Holy Spirit Matrix of God’s revealed Truth” is a powerful mind frame transporting you out of mortality into Eternity. Transforming you from a thought process of flesh and blood to one of SPIRIT. We now live in a different Kingdom ruled by a different set of laws, and a very different freedom, a very REAL FREEDOM. Life in the Spirit!

BUT HAVE YOU BEEN TEACHABLE? AND WHO HAVE YOU CHOSEN AS YOUR TEACHERS? HOW EXPERT ARE THEY? HOW DO YOU JUDGE “EXPERT”? A PAPER HANGING ON THEIR WALL? HOW RICH OR SUCCESSFUL THEY SEEM TO BE? HOW GREAT IS THE LIGHT IN YOUR HEAD? HAS IT GIVEN YOU A PRIEST MATRIX, OR KING? (King is a false teaching, a mistranslation. Check it out.)

The Matrix (mind) of Christ is Priesthood. Anything less is a lesser light. Some of the teachers you have filled your head with are not as expert as you thought. Perhaps they have a Money Matrix? Perhaps they are led by pride, or power, or other teachers they thought were “all that”, and they want to be “all that” too. And to “that”… the TRUTH is that pride goes before a fall!

THE HELMET UPON OUR HEAD IS EVERYTHING! It’s not optional! It determines your spiritual success or failure!

This very real challenge has been called the “Battlefield of the Mind”. This is where it is determined what we really believe and who we really are, and if we’re really following Christ, or not. Jesus said many call him Lord, but do not what he says. He told those to “DEPART FROM HIM”. (Not words I want to hear.)

How about you? Even at this very moment your Mind Matrix is deciding how you feel about what I just said. And out of that you will decide if there are changes you need to make or not. You will decide if you like me or not. Possibly label me a quack. It all depends on YOUR reality. But is your reality REAL? Am I a quack? Or someone God wants you to listen to?

Just because your chosen matrix may put me in a “quack file”, does not mean I am. Only TRUTH determines all things. Only God will be the judge of that. I’m not concerned about YOUR TRUTH, only GOD’S TRUTH. And I function as a Priest of that truth, that light. So the more we have the Mind of Christ, the God Matrix; then the more we will be able to file things correctly and make wise and productive decisions we will not later regret. We will successfully walk the path without end, as Priest of Christ. Is this the reality that completely dominates everything else in your head? It should be. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God!

But if you examine your matrix and in all “honesty” decide there is a “truth gap” between what you claim with your mouth and what you actually live in your daily life, then here is your chance to WAKE UP before it is too late.  I have much to say on this subject of the “Mind Matrix” and TRUTH. Let us put on the Helmet of Salvation, the Mind of Christ, the God Matrix! And know…each piece of this Armor are so inextricably connected…the Belt of Truth…the Boots of the Gospel…Breastplate of Righteousness…Shield of Faith…Sword of the Spirit…Prayer and Supplication… that the whole Armor are one…even as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit…ARE ONE!

Fellowship of the White Path – 6/24/18

20180610_125140 The door on Noah’s Ark did not close until after man closed his mind!

As explained in previous article, we’re now sharing the weekly lessons of “Fellowship of the White Path” on this site. We welcome one and all. Welcome to something different. Please leave a comment if this site is of value to you.

After I left what I call the “modern American church system”, I entered a spiritual twilight zone in which most of my former Christian brothers and sisters think I have gone off the deep end, and probably in sin. But have any of them read the material of this site, in which the details of this journey are given? “NO.” It’s as if they are afraid to.

I have mentioned to them about discovering important information in early church history and church fathers. (A subject I would think of great interest.) Have they asked me to share what I found with them? “NO.” They seem to have no interest, curiosity, or concern. They seem to be confident in what their own church has taught them, and do not consider this modern materialistic church might be misleading them in any major way. In other words, (for whatever reason), they have closed their minds to other possibilities, and believe having an “open mind” is a spiritual danger. They believe it is a fool’s path putting at risk your very soul to be open minded. To this I have a couple of  very simplistic and logical questions.

Since when does “greater light” have anything to fear from “lesser light”? Also… who were the Jews who failed to recognize God in Christ, and who were the ones who succeeded in recognizing God was with them, the day of their visitation? Was it not the “close-minded” who failed to see Him? Was it not the “open-minded” who succeeded in hearing Him? If so, how can being open minded be a sin? And how can being closed minded be wisdom?

Was not Saul closed minded until Jesus knocked him from his prideful horse of being right, and opened his mind? At which time God then changed his name to Paul. The closed minded Saul now gone, God gave us the “Apostle” Paul. True churches needed to be birthed.

In the days of Noah, he preached to those people something like 120 years! And other than his immediate family, not one convert! They were closed minded to any threat of something called a flood, and  a God ready to judge! They had closed the door of their mind long before God ever closed the door of the Ark, and yet when the flood waters finally came, they screamed and scratched at that door, wanting in, as if God should open it? Jesus compared the last days to the days of Noah, and sometimes I think I know how Noah felt.

This teacher is warning you concerning the “CHARGE/ANOINTING” on your ARMOR of LIGHT. Is anyone hearing me? Or are the mental doors all closed? Are we STRONG in the Lord? If your armor is weak, then you’re not strong. And if your neglecting your Priesthood in Christ, the things of your Priesthood, then your armor is not getting CHARGED. And if your armor is weak, SO ARE YOU. I bet you know the charge on your cell phone. I bet you charge it every night and check it all day long, but how well do you know the CHARGE on your Armor of Light? Does God just keep it full power, no matter how much we neglect it? The devil would dearly love for you to be foolish enough to believe and live that way. (And many do!)

If you like the Marvel movies of Ironman, you know he escaped terrorist captivity when he barely managed to construct a primitive iron suit with enough juice to last 15 minutes. That’s all he had. If he had not overcome the enemy and escaped within 15 minutes, he would have died at the enemy’s hand, or continued captivity. I’m sure he wished he had more charge! A man died giving him this one chance. Tony did not waste this man’s sacrifice, but he changed. He repented of who he had been and truly changed. His world had been rocked. A reality check demanding a change. That’s what we’re afraid of, that we might be forced to look at our need of change, and we do not want to change and be like Christ, to live as a Priest!

ae94c45481bda498d216b58921192b5e

Later in the movie, he has his new and much improved suit of armor, but a bad guy managed to steal the powerhouse unit for the suit, and he had to go back to a previous power unit of lesser power and not fully charged. As this warrior heads out to do battle, one of the first things he checks is the “charge level” on this power unit, and finds it to be at 48%. Notice how important knowing the charge level is. Don’t you know Tony is wishing it were at 100%? Don’t you know he wishes he was still the one being powered by the more advanced unit? Is it any different with us? But do we live our life faithful to such spiritual understanding as God’s Word has revealed? We need to understand our level of CHARGE is connected to the practice of our PRIESTHOOD! Are we the spiritual warrior in Christ?

“And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priest for our God. And they will reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:10

Who has caused them to become a Kingdom of priest? Jesus. Certainly not me. I’m just the messenger, a Noah, pointing this out. I’m a crazy man building a big boat in the desert. A huge boat for so few people? What a waste.) Who are the ones who have become these priest? All born-again in Christ, the children of God. Do you believe yourself such? Are you living it? What kind of boat are you building?

Do you regret making the choice to be a child of God? Do you understand the value of priesthood in Christ? Would we neglect such a thing? I know…hard things for us to think about when we’re use to someone tickling our ears with happy-thoughts. But what is going to shake you out of your spiritual neglect and apathy? Happy thoughts? Or God’s simple truth?

I’m a man accused of being spiritually off-track, but when you sit in your church building and the preacher is preaching, is he growing you in the powers of your priesthood, or teaching you to reign? Where is the emphasis? The Apostle Paul accused one church of reigning without him. He scolded them for their foolish thinking. The one I follow said he who is servant of all, is greatest. The seed that falls to the ground and dies, bears much fruit. Sacrifice is all about priesthood, but we would live as kings? Noah preached faithfully out of a heart of love and concern to “closed minds” who never entered in.

So what are we willing to do about it? Will we begin to take up our cross, our priesthood, put a priority on the Kingdom of God, and come before the Holy of Holies faithfully? Will we watch and pray, or rush out naked into another day? A teacher can only teach. He cannot change a person. Only you can change. Noah could only preach and build the boat, he was not to force anyone in.

Is Fellowship of the White Path one of God’s arks in this day? I think we can only be judged by what we teach, and our actions. Are our words true? Are you concerned enough to thoroughly study our words against your Bible before deciding? I absolutely love for people to check the words of this teaching, but I suspect they know the words are true without even doing so. That’s alright too, as long as we take it to heart.

We have such opportunity in this day to make a difference, but only if God empowers. Jason took our Fellowship to a Garden Center and Flower shop 2 hour drive away yesterday. He is related to the owners of the business. We had a good time. We ate out on the way and shared that table. But something we did not expect happened at the Flower shop while we were there. One of the employees has a 91 year old dad in the hospital passing away at this very time. We ended up in in a circle prayer of 4, holding hands, and I was asked to pray for this one crossing over. What an honor. And it happened in this place, among other doors that also began to open as we shared.

I am amazed how much God has our Fellowship “go out” to others at their tables, not ours. He seems more concerned about we who claim to be followers of Christ going out, than others coming in. I get strange looks when I tell people how our Fellowship works, and yet God keeps sending us places, and a School in the Wilderness is still being slowly developed. So it’s not about numbers, it’s about discipleship. The Teepee may never see any real numbers, but in many ways, including this blog site, God is getting His true message out there. It’s about Priesthood, not Kingship. Are you charged? I bet your cell phone is.

It’s not about “going to church”. It’s about “being the church”. Which are you? Do you “go to church”, or “do you live church”? Those who live church walk around in a bright Armor of Light easily seen by one and all. So says Grandpa White Feather. Check if my words be true. Wolves speak with forked tongue.

Are you “STRONG” in the Lord?

20171202_173614

Welcome to “Fellowship of the White Path”, path without end, and I mean that literally, because I am going to start sharing what we are teaching in our group meetings. Small though we be, like the wren in my story of Flapless, we think big, we think outside the box, and God has laid it on my heart to make the teachings of our meetings available for anyone who is teachable and has a heart to learn. We all like to think we are strong in the Lord, but are we?

My last two articles were about a spiritual surrender to God’s Holy Wind. To live like the sailboat, not the motorboat; and the eagle, not the sparrow. But in our Fellowship we are about to look at what it means to be “Strong in the Lord”. And true to what I previously wrote, as I was in morning prayers my Lord impressed with a Wind current saying, “Make the teachings of the Fellowship available to whosoever will.” (I knew God meant the blogsite, because our group meetings already are available to whosoever will.)

When it comes to the Fellowship, God told me not to worry about the numbers. You might remember David got in serious trouble with God when he numbered the people. God says “He” adds to the Church those who should be saved. He tells us we can sow and water, but the “increase” is His responsibility. What He “IS” concerned about, that thing that “IS” our responsibility, is how we are growing His spiritual children. What is our discipleship? What are we teaching? What kind of pastures are we leading the sheep to for grazing in? What kind of warriors are we growing? This “IS” our responsibility >

“Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the Apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors, and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.” (Eph. 4:11-12)

 These verses are immediately followed by scriptures explaining about “unity” and no longer being like “immature children”. Clearly the “building up” that is spoken of has to do with “spiritual growth and discipleship”, rather than a concern for “numbers”. God says we have this responsibility of how we raise the children.

So…I surrender to the Wind, and I have no concern about numbers, but I am very concerned about where I lead people to graze! And the thing that breaks my heart everywhere I turn, the need I see that is so great, is an understanding of our PRIESTHOOD! Our spiritual armor is directly connected to our priesthood. Are we strong in the Lord?!

The reason we are so prone to the “7 Deadly Sins”, ( and yes, we are officially back into that topic), is because the king has no clothes! We CANNOT take God’s Armor of Light for granted and expect to be strong in the Lord. You simply are not! I want to look at that armor as it relates to our priesthood in Christ. Jesus said the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. If their is no armor covering your flesh, because you have not developed such disciplines, then you are weak! But you can be strong, if your teachable.

420px-Gospelofpeace

I find myself emphasizing that question so much in this modern day. Are you teachable? What is God’s wilderness and what is his Promised Land of faith and Spirit? Most of that first generation died in the wilderness. The old man had to die! The old man understands little of God’s true Promised Land.

The book of Ephesians will be our main focus. I will be taking our “Fellowship of the White Path” through this very article I am writing. You will be reading the same material I will share with them. I like the above picture of spiritual armor, but I actually picture our armor as something more like this next picture.

download (6)

Of course this is the Marvel character of Ironman. This character is fiction, but our Armor of Light is not. If God has made something even greater than the imagination that spawned Ironman, if he has made such armor available to us, and indeed, encased us within it, then what is the proper care and maintenance thereof? How do we keep this armor fully charged? For scriptures make it plain that we can be drained. Just ask the five foolish virgins.

Also consider this, Satan sees the invisible. We do not. You may not see yourself walking around encased in a sacred armor, but Satan does. He also sees those who are walking around naked, or near to naked. While we look not at that which is seen! Always consider what Satan sees more than what your flesh and blood eyes perceive.

This is where I’m taking our little flock of Fellowship of the White Path to graze. Our focus Bible book will be Ephesians. Our focus questions will be: 1.) How do I stay strong in the Lord? 2.) Am I teachable? 3.) What charges this armor and keeps it at full power? 4.) What is this Priesthood thing I’ve been born into by the blood of Christ?

I have never been a part of role play games such as Dungeons and Dragons, and whatever else is out there, including the many video games. I know little of these things, except they can be poisonous and consume much time. But I have learned some games have the “Priest” character, and as such they have certain powers. How many of us have neglected the powers of our Priesthood in out pursuit of an earthly kingdom, a false theology of kingship? Is that all you know in Christ? Has that been your focus? Priesthood is more powerful than any false teaching of kingship. How well do you know the powers of Priesthood? God’s favor about us as a shield, as Armor!

Well… that’s where Grandpa White Feather is leading his little flock. God has promised our needs will be met. That is what God hath said. He has also said there are many mansions “in heaven”. I’m not in heaven yet, and neither is my flock. Paul accused one group of people that they had begun to reign without him! I’ll stay with Paul, thank you, because he stayed with Jesus. This is where Fellowship of the White Path is going, and you can go with us if you like, right here at “Path Without End”. I don’t know how many of you God is speaking to, to follow? That does not matter to me. Not my responsibility in a time when people seek someone to itch their ear. But where we are going. That’s what concerns me. That’s where God will hold me accountable. Not for numbers, but for what this teacher teaches.

John the Baptist was a voice crying in the wilderness, ushering in the coming of Christ. History is repeating.

Love Upward and Outward #1

668571080“Love Upward first, and Outward also.”

Turtle Gardens are coming! Slow down, and hear God.

We may run with this title of “Love Upward and Outward” for some time. This has become the motto of our Fellowship: “Fellowship of the White Path”.

Well the “outreach gardens” have begun and I thought I would try to keep the pictures going too, so you can see the progress as it happens. Instead of building big temples, Jesus invited “Temples to His Table”.

Know ye not that ye have become the temples of God? God is not looking for temples made by man nor hand. He’s looking for you. He’s looking for us. He’s looking for his family.

Yes, Jesus changed things. I hope your church isn’t confused about the changes he made, but it’s all good! So the heart and soul of these gardens is to be a “Table” in which to fellowship upward and outward. Always keep your love for God first, because he is the power working in us to also love others in a godly way. Consider these your thoughts for the day to ponder, we’re keeping it short, and now here’s some pictures.

This is the garden area for my mom. It’s a green stretch of ground 20 feet wide and 30 feet long. We painted the building yesterday in winds rushing 25 mph. That was actually no fun, but we gott’er done.

20180412_120443

There is an apple tree at the one end. Our Lord willing, this plain Jane site is going to become a beautiful garden. This is before we painted. It got a fresh coat of white yesterday. The blue arch is something my mom salvaged off the Tipi. (LOL).

Now as to our own place, I started taring up jack! Much work to do, starting with much clean-up. I’m taking the old deck out, we have gutters to clean, leaves to burn, and amazingly enough, we actually discovered a few plants survived the winter in a little corner flower garden we had. So the area already has life!

 

20180411_144856 We also found water damage to the house we did not even know was happening. So we are a long ways from setting our garden table yet. And we have a Turtle Box about to happen also. In memory of a one year old girl who was shot in a drive-by and died. Turns out I know the grandma of the little girl. This box needs to be special, and it will speak words hard for the human vocabulary to express. Pictures of the box coming soon.

 

That’s it for now. Grandpa White Feather saying, Love upward first and outward also. Slow down. (Speed kills!) And hear God!
