A Message from Above~ Love One Another

IMG_1476

Never give up your spiritual quest to know God! Seek out and find what resonates within you. Just as you are unique, so are the paths to find him. Learn everything that you can learn and never stop that process. We are all spiritual students for life. From spiritual learning and growth, one finds direction and purpose. God comes to us in many forms. He’s not a foreign concept in our minds; rather a familiar something that we gravitate towards and it resonates within our understanding of the world we live in. Through our history, our DNA, our tastes and interests, and our families he finds us and he connects with us.

Truly indeed, God loves us all! We are all his children and we are all worthy of living happy, prosperous, productive, giving lives. This kind of connection is of pure desire borne of love for each of us. This love is indescribable in any high word in any language, and he has it for us all.

We must seek him within our own understanding and we must try to realize that others see him differently from their own visions, own environment, and own belief systems. This is what makes us all unique and different and is one of the many yet important tasks we have to learn here as a human race. We as humans jump many of the hurdles that are put in front of us, but this is one we are losing on a massive, collective global scale. We need to embrace one another. Learn about each other. Accept one another. Show compassion and love for one another. This is the one thing that must change for the better; for our collective future depends on it.

Last night the bombings in Paris were the tipping point. The catalyst. We must for our highest and best from a personal standpoint to a global standpoint learn to LOVE ONE ANOTHER! We are at the precipice now on a global scale. We must through our actions rise above the hate and the violence and the intolerance to see the larger perspective of human oneness. What we do to others, we do to ourselves. Can we please take a small moment and pause to consider God’s love for humanity and the possibility of peace before we all plunge ourselves into a massive world war of hate and violence that will lead us to trying to wipe each other off the planet. We all have a great choice to make. Let us choose wisely. Either way, we will succeed.

Love and for Your Highest Best,

Holly

Communication is Key

“Jordon, honey, wake up.” “Try and wake up, please. Jackson is here now. He’s in from school to see you.” We were at hospice and it was 4:00 and Jackson had just come in from school to see him. Jordon woke up slightly and opened his eyes and said as clear as a bell- “Hey bud, how was your day?” That was the last clear sentence Jordon spoke before he died. I was focused on Jackson, his reaction, his well-being, my own voice, the room, at that moment. Jackson needed to leave soon after and I understood. Too much for an eleven year old. Too much for any year old….

We didn’t know this would be his last day and last night. We didn’t know if it was the medicine or the cancer that was causing this alarming downturn that day. I suppose he didn’t know either or he would have said something different to Jackson. I think we all thought he had time. I try to make meaning out of those last words he spoke so clearly. Those are words he spoke to Jackson everyday after school when he would come home. Jordon was always interested in Jackson’s life. Genuinely interested. He was an amazing father and that was a huge reason why I loved him so much.

All I can glean from this last conversation is the fact that it occurred. And it occurred between Jackson and Jordon. And I am so thankful that it happened. Back to simplicity. A simple conversation of a few sentiments between a father and a son who love each other very much. How fitting. A question so important and simple that Jackson can keep with him for the rest of his life. My dad cares, he cares how my day was. He still cares, Jackson. He’s watching over you, protecting and guiding, and showing you a path if you watch for the signs and believe. Notice and believe are two words I will make sure he fully understands and never forgets.

The next day was Father’s Day. He played in a championship flag football game and his team won. They won big. Jackson caught an interception and ran the ball in for a touchdown. Jackson is an amazing, beautiful, talented human being. At the end of the game I took a picture of him and the team. He had his finger pointing up as if to say “we’re number one!” but also it was pointing up for Jordon. He was saying, “Hey Dad! My day was great!! Thanks for asking!”Image
