IMAGINE

 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,  bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either.  Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back.  And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”  Luke 6:27-31

These words of Jesus  still apply today, but unfortunately, the Word of God has been mocked and to the vast majority, doesn’t hold much water.  Today, we are quick to judge others.  We find ourselves consumed with our own lives, rather than caring for one another.  Hatred, bigotry, violence and malice seem to be a way of life in our country.   It’s all for one and one for one.

I began my young adult life in the sixties – another time filled with hatred and ugliness.  It was a time filled with prejudice, anger and rioting.  How far have we come in those few decades?  I pray that we can return to God’s Word.  I pray that our country will someday realize that all of the things we’ve fought for in our history, was for a good cause.  I pray that once more we will become a United States with a common goal.

In those turbulent 60s, the Beatles invaded America and though I wasn’t a huge fan of their lifestyle, I loved their music.  The profound words of John Lennon speak loudly today.

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

JOHN LENNON

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
