Christmas Prep and 1st Day of Chanukah
It seems God's up to some big things......... as the saying goes, "Everything is bigger in Texas" ( i tend to think that ... it's a Freudian Ed - takes- a - Piss.. contest most days, but none the less) G-d doesn't have those "issues" thankfully! So i've posted 2 pics... one is.... OBVIOUSLY a Christmas tree that's in some posh hotel that Caroline and i sauntered into last thursday. We pretended we were guests there, and walked about like we owned the place for a bit! (yes, i pulled a Derek!) The other one... is the SECRET CHRISTMAS PRESENT that i got for Derek and Amy (AKA DnA).... it's a bottle of wine that is Mickey D's super-sized version. (note the scale next to a "normal" sized bottle) The name on the bottle of wine is "LIBERTY SCHOOL" Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles 2006- which is a larger than life prophetic utterance of what God wants to give us ... since we are Noble and Royal Heirs in this celestial Kingdom. I love the verse .... "Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty" 2 Corinthians 3:17.
It was a Costco special and my personal nic for that place of business is the "Nephilim Store" since it really is the Commercialism Giant of the land with Mega Sized everything. ( i don't want to think of the Carbon Footprint parts there...rather Sasquatchian i would presume) But... i like to buy in bulk cuz it saves some serious mullah and we have as a norm, more than just the two of us to feed. In any case, the bottle holds 4 bottles of wine in 1!!!!- more than a double portion of Blessing ... and that is the point.
G-d often speaks in symbols (see Derek's post @ the Bearable Light)--- and i soooo love that aspect of G-d!
Though Jesus came as a baby, it's kinda like the Tardis (bigger on the inside)- He held the G-d head in a form of vulnerability. Just like David and the Giant... (Nephilim) - David's authority in G-d is bigger than his earthly frame.
G-d's love is Bigger........... Bigger than our apparent issues, Bigger than our fears, Bigger than what we could ever imagine or think to behold. He is extravagant and lavishing in His unconditional love for us, and His desire is to see His creation, lavish back on Him and others in that type of scale.
So in this season of extreme - Think Big, Dream Big, Forgive Big, Love Big......... Be a symbol on the Earth.... it's a BIG Kingdom!
