We women….

\

We women were with Jesus when he died. The men had run away – except
John, who was with Jesus’ mother. We women served him for three years
while he went around teaching and preaching to anyone who wanted to
listen. And to some who didn’t like what they heard. We served him and
helped him with our money.

The end was terrible. I hated the dirt. His pain. The noise of that
screaming mob. We women saw it. His mother Mary, Mary Magdalene,
Salome, and other women. We stayed with him till it was over, and we
prepared his body for the tomb.

I said I followed him, but it was my sons I followed – James and
Joses. They left good jobs – put their tools on the ground when he
called them. They said there was nothing else to do. I was angry. They
could have married, raised families. Children. My grandchildren.

When they began to travel with their teacher, I went along too. Can
you blame me? I’m a widow. A woman with no family can’t survive. My
sons were supposed to take care of me, and now I was taking care of
their teacher.

He called himself the light of the world. He was always talking about
love. Love your neighbor as you do yourselves. Love God with your
whole heart and your whole soul and your whole mind and your whole
strength. Love your enemy. Do good to those who hate you. Love
yourself because God loves you. Always love. I began to like being
with him.

It was almost Passover. We were in Bethany one evening at Simon’s
house – he had been a leper but Jesus had cured him, made him whole
again. A woman I’d never seen before entered carrying an alabaster
jar. In the jar was expensive perfume. The woman poured the perfume on
Jesus’ head. The smell was intoxicating. I thought I could live the
rest of my life in that wonderful smell. Some of the men were furious:
“Why are you wasting this perfume?” they said. “We could have sold it
for over three hundred silver pieces and given the money to the poor.”

But Jesus scolded them: “Let her alone,” he said. “Why judge her? The
poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.
She is preparing me for my burial. Wherever the good news is
proclaimed throughout the world, what she has done will be told to
remember her.”

Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, stood up quickly. He seemed
angry. My son James asked what was the matter. But Judas didn’t
answer. He just left Simon’s house without looking back.

On the first day of Unleavened Bread, we celebrated the Passover
supper in a large upstairs room in Jerusalem. At the table, Jesus
talked about dying. He said that he was going home to his Father. He
said, “I give you my word, one of you is about to betray me, yes, one
who is eating with me.”

The men all said to him, “Surely not I!” We women – what could we say?
– we had served him and learned to love him and didn’t care about
power and being on his right hand and being the greatest and judging
the tribes of Israel, we women didn’t say anything.

Then he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to all of us.
“Take this,” he said, “this is my body.” He took a cup, gave thanks to
his Father, and gave it to us, and we all drank from it. He said to
us: “This is my blood, the blood of the covenant, to be poured out on
behalf of many. I solemnly assure you, I will not again drink of the
fruit of the vine until the day I drink it in the reign of God.” Then
he said, “Do this to remember me.”

We didn’t understand what he was saying, but we ALL– the women and
the men – we all ate and drank.

Signs you are live in 2013

I don’t know about you, but I find it kinda weird how there are some things that seem they could have been written this morning – like this post which I originally read for the first time in August, 2001- Ninure da Hippie

SIGNS YOU LIVE IN THE YEAR 2012

1. You just tried to enter your password on the microwave.

2. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.

3. You call your son’s beeper to let him know it’s time to eat. He emails you back from his bedroom, “What’s for dinner?”

4. Your daughter sells Girl Scout Cookies via her web site.

5. You chat several times a day with a stranger from South Africa, but you haven’t spoken with your next door neighbor yet this year.

6. You check the ingredients on a can of chicken noodle soup to see if it contains Echinacea.

9. Every commercial on television has a website address at the bottom of the screen.

10. You buy a computer and 6 months later it is out of date and now sells for half the price you paid.

11. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn’t have the first 20 or 30 years of your life, is cause for panic and you turn around to go get it.

12. Using real money, instead of credit or debit, to make a purchase would be a hassle and take planning.

18. You hear most of your jokes via e-mail instead of in person.

19. You get an extra phone line so you can get phone calls.

20. You disconnect from the Internet and get this awful feeling, as if you just pulled the plug on a loved one.

21. You get up in the morning and go on-line before getting your coffee.

22. You wake up at 3:00 am to go to the bathroom and check your E-mail on your way back to bed.

23. You start tilting your head sideways to smile….. 🙂

24. You’re reading this.

25. Even worse; you’re going to send it on to someone else.

For with God, nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37

Hippie Rant: This is the Day!!

One way or another this is going to be one of the most important days of our lives.

Even more important than the day the USA’s first Black America was elected. We are either going to see one side “take our country back”, or we going to see the USA continue to make a Rightward tone.

If you are a US Citizen, there should be no reason why you aren’t casting a vote today.

NONE

It will make a difference.

Not voting is telling one side or another that they win, even if you meant to say they lost.

You will be voting for continuation of Medicare or against it.

Voting for war in Syria and Iraq, or against war.

Voting for equality for women, or for women staying home and being a little less than men.

And so much more…

Vote.

This is “your” day.

Mitt Romney’s Message for the Holidays

Mitt Romney’s Message for the Holidays

Mitt Romney has a message for everyone this Halloween season: Don’t go knocking on his door! “Halloween goes against everything that is American,” he says. “It promotes satanic values and instills in our children that it’s okay to go knocking on strangers’ doors asking for handouts.” He continues, “we as devout Republicans and Americans do not feel like promoting or enabling entitlements like candy corn or mini Snickers bars. I love Snickers, don’t get me wrong, but we Americans cannot go around handing freeloading children candy. It’ll only make them lazier. Pretty soon they won’t be knocking on strangers’ doors, but sitting at home with the phone book and calling strangers to ask them for treats. It’s un-American.”

When asked whether he felt the same way about Christmas, a time for people all over the world to unite and celebrate in the birth of Jesus Christ, the Presidential candidate also said he would wage a war against the North Pole.

“Santa Claus is a criminal and he needs to be stopped. Spreading the wealth? Making sure all children have toys? That’s preposterous! Why has this criminal been on the run for centuries? He comes in your house, eats your cookies, leaves a mess of coal in your stockings (which only takes jobs away from coal miners), and then leaves thousands of dollars’ worth of repairs on your roof because of that God awful sleigh steered by flying reindeer. It’s not normal and he needs to be stopped.”

He continues, “also, the elves he employs should not be working in that workshop so much with all of that magic, beds, candy canes, all the cinnamon cookies they can eat and central heat and air conditioning. They’re in the North Pole. There’s no reason for them to have central air conditioning. I could save them from Santa and put them to work in my China sweatshops.”

So there you have it, Americans. Mitt Romney hates Halloween and Christmas. Be prepared for a nuclear war against the North Pole!

Note: This was posted on a page and apparently a lot of their fans didn’t get that this was satire, which it obviously is. And in other shocking news, there’s no Santa Claus!

EVEN GOD ENJOYS A GOOD LAUGH, so you should too.

Who was Jesus?

I guess it all depends on who you ask….

Oh, and no offense is met by anything in this post – Ninure da Hippie

EVEN GOD ENJOYS A GOOD LAUGH, so you should too.

There are 3 good arguments to support the argument that Jesus was Black:
1. He called everyone brother.
2. He liked Gospel.
3. He didn’t get a fair trial.

But then there are 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:
1. He went into his Father’s business.
2. He lived at home until he was 33.
3. His Mother was sure he was God.

But then there are 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian:
1. He talked with his hands.
2. He had wine with his meals.
3. He used olive oil.

But then there are 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Californian:
1. He never cut His hair.
2. He walked around barefoot all the time.
3. He started a new religion.

But then there are 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was American
Indian:
1. He was at peace with nature.
2. He ate a lot of fish.
3. He talked about the Great Spirit.

But then there are 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish:
1. He never got married.
2. He was always telling unverifiable stories.
3. He loved green pastures.

But the most compelling evidence of all – 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman:
1. He fed a crowd at a moment’s notice when there was virtually no food.
2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn’t get it.
3. And even when he was dead, he had to get up because there was still work to do.
