Updated on August 17, 2013

Baby do not look for Jesus. Look for love and if he is love he will find you

Just loving life and asking others to do the same.

You do not need Jesus!!

Amen Amen Amen!

What you need is love baby!!

Oh my what a cry will go up with this concept. I am saying here that you do not need to go out and find Jesus.If someone is telling you to do that stop listening to them. If someone is saying the only way to heaven is through Christ our Lord: look some place else.


Who do you love?

Here is my point: Jesus loves you. You do not need to go out and find Him. Do not spend your effort going and looking for Him. Do not be a silly person looking for something that is already inside of you.

Our Lord Jesus. Is in all of us. He is God --- duh He is everywhere. Omnipresent and alpha and omega. "Looking for Jesus is like facing the sun to find your shadow" (ed 2013)

We do not look outside to find warmth for inside. We look inside and caress that which is already there.

Here are just some fun ramblings to kind of bring the matter home:

Well I love you. Who do you?

Ya see it ain't all that complicated and there are not really rules. That stinky low slum dog homeless unshowered man I met at the 7 eleven this morning was my brother. O my! Damn and hell fire I just had to give him a buck as the shopkeeper kicked is ass out.

All I do is sing Amen Amen Amen. I got no scripture to read ya. I ain't got no commission.

Oh Lordy I ain't no better than you but you be better than me. I am so low that my shoulders don't got no weight. Oh no there is not weight on my yoke for they frown at me and will not even let me carry their load. Perhaps spit of another will clean my feet.

You see I am unburdened and ask you to give me yours. I would like it much if you let me.

I took a break from preaching. Oh, just 3 weeks.

My feet have turned to clay and then I hear this!!!

Our mind gets tied up in thought and needs and needs confirmation. We must get off this track to hell -- our hell.

(Here are some thoughts that show that no matter how right we are,,, we must surrender in order find that peace that we need so badly )


Concept of love. And my feet start to dance an my love starts to grow.

Am I wrong just to love? Some say so. And I weep.

I get folk who read scripture to condemn others. They need us to hear that message.

It is a bitch but I did not get that gift. I got a gift to love and love and love and sometimes I get tired of loving. I want to condemn those who do not see things my way. It is so self justifying and relaxing to cast stones. Damn it. Please Lord let me do that. It is a smooth path and one down hill.

Lord do you not hear my cry? I want to tell others they are wrong in their beliefs. But you force me to love them. May I have water for my tongue? May I just lay down and sing Amen?

Ok and OK and ok.

That woman and child and children and heart and soul you gave me. I am rather not to happy. I do want to sleep all night. I do not want my phone ringing at 2am, I do not want to study 4 hours a day or have to smile and hold hands.


There is a place that needs you. You do not need it. It is a place of Love and you must give it.

The boy has no hate.

Bring it on my youngest boy says. Bring it on my oldest son says. Try to understand this: I do not need to tell them rules. Do not drive drunk, do well in school and work, honor your mother, stay clean and sober, avoid danger when you can, avoid anger when you can, keep electrical current away from water, everyday show up on time, respect your elders, respect your teacher and boss.

I really do not need to preach and teach these rules I need to live them. You see the only rules my boys need to know is that I love them unconditionally. And that though I fail I try hard to do not harm to another, including bugs and animals and plants.But I love them so much that they can be better.

The Pharisees and Sophists and Sadducee had rules. And they looked for God with their eyes and minds.

Do not look for God. Just soften your heart a bit so it can expand for entry.

      You my darling are a treasure. How is our land of "ya can't get there from here"? Is there starting just a nip in the air yet? I loved living there.

      Let us lift each other so high that others will reach for the sky and come find why.

      The title alone is reason enough to read this; the message is frosting on the cake. :) Have a great weekend.
