The Thankful Revolution Potpourri


All thy garments [smell] of myrrh, and aloes, [and] cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

Potpourri is a mix bag of items; hence this will be a section to share randomness.  Just because it may seem arbitrary does not mean it’s not purposeful. Let the sharing begin…

Thought – would not it be nice if the combination of our shared ideas, efforts, actions, and messages results in a glorious aromatic fragrance that brings a much needed change in our environment.  Dispelling the stench of putridness to usher in sweetness is the end result.  AHHHH can you inhale and take a whiff of this desired scent?  I like to immerse myself in this type of air conditioner that continues to seep into every crevice of my space.  What about you?  Does this sound and smell like something you would enjoy too?  Well, come and see (or better yet smell) – come smell what is being dispensed into the atmosphere spreading The Thankful Revolution’s collaborative essence of Myrrhism – The BitterSweet aroma. To be adorned in a fragrance that is welcomed this is the aspiration for why we do what we do. Let us continue to seek out ways to bring gladness across our planet.  We all can provide this perfumed aroma into the composition of our activities that inevitably enhances every life touched.  Thank you again for engaging in this journey we call life and that life MORE Abundantly.  This includes The Thankful Revolution Potpourri.

    The Message
    Never Walk Away
    21-26 Dear friend, guard Clear Thinking and Common Sense with your life;
    don’t for a minute lose sight of them.
    They’ll keep your soul alive and well,
    they’ll keep you fit and attractive.
    You’ll travel safely,
    you’ll neither tire nor trip.
    You’ll take afternoon naps without a worry,
    you’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep.

    he’ll keep you safe and sound.

    27-29 Never walk away from someone who deserves help;
    your hand is God’s hand for that person.
    Don’t tell your neighbor “Maybe some other time”

    when the money’s right there in your pocket.
    Don’t figure ways of taking advantage of your neighbor
    when he’s sitting there trusting and unsuspecting.

    ​Love this word of truth! Habakkuk 2:2 KJV And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

  19. Genesis 11
    The Voice
    According to Genesis, the sons and daughters of Noah established the first known cultures of the world.

    11 There was a time when everyone on the earth spoke the very same language. 2 As many of these people began moving from the eastern regions into the western part of Mesopotamia, they settled down on a plain in the land of Shinar. 3 Since stone was not readily available, they discovered how to make bricks and use tar for mortar to build their structures.

    People (to each other): Come on, let’s make bricks out of mud and bake them in the fire. Then we can build all we want. 4 Let’s go build ourselves a city with a huge tower that reaches into heaven. That way we will make a name for ourselves. If we don’t, we’ll run the risk of being scattered all over the earth.

    The desire to settle in one place and build a city runs counter to God’s command to spread out across the earth. They want to make their mark on the world rather than conform to God’s plan for their lives. They want power and prestige. They want to ensure that they will not be scattered; that is, they want to choose their own destiny. But God has a different plan and purpose. He is the One who determines destiny.

    5 The Eternal One came down and took a look at the city and the tower the children of Adam were building. He was not pleased.

    Eternal One: 6 Will you look at that! The people are all together on this. With one language they are able to start this kind of project. This is only the beginning of what they will do. Soon they will think they can accomplish anything and everything on their own. 7 Let’s go down and break this up! If We confuse their language, they won’t be able to understand each other’s words.

    8 This is how the Eternal scattered people from Shinar all across the surface of the earth. Since they were unable to communicate, they stopped working on the city and went their separate ways. 9 So this is why the city was called Babel:[a] because it was there that the Eternal confused the language of all the peoples and scattered them across the surface of the earth.


  20. 2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.


  21. Luke 15:11-32
    The Message
    The Story of the Lost Son
    11-12 Then he said, “There was once a man who had two sons. The younger said to his father, ‘Father, I want right now what’s coming to me.’

    12-16 “So the father divided the property between them. It wasn’t long before the younger son packed his bags and left for a distant country. There, undisciplined and dissipated, he wasted everything he had. After he had gone through all his money, there was a bad famine all through that country and he began to feel it. He signed on with a citizen there who assigned him to his fields to slop the pigs. He was so hungry he would have eaten the corn-cobs in the pig slop, but no one would give him any.

    17-20 “That brought him to his senses. He said, ‘All those farmhands working for my father sit down to three meals a day, and here I am starving to death. I’m going back to my father. I’ll say to him, Father, I’ve sinned against God, I’ve sinned before you; I don’t deserve to be called your son. Take me on as a hired hand.’ He got right up and went home to his father.

    20-21 “When he was still a long way off, his father saw him. His heart pounding, he ran out, embraced him, and kissed him. The son started his speech: ‘Father, I’ve sinned against God, I’ve sinned before you; I don’t deserve to be called your son ever again.’

    22-24 “But the father wasn’t listening. He was calling to the servants, ‘Quick. Bring a clean set of clothes and dress him. Put the family ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Then get a prize-winning heifer and roast it. We’re going to feast! We’re going to have a wonderful time! My son is here—given up for dead and now alive! Given up for lost and now found!’ And they began to have a wonderful time.

    25-27 “All this time his older son was out in the field. When the day’s work was done he came in. As he approached the house, he heard the music and dancing. Calling over one of the houseboys, he asked what was going on. He told him, ‘Your brother came home. Your father has ordered a feast—barbecued beef!—because he has him home safe and sound.’

    28-30 “The older brother stomped off in an angry sulk and refused to join in. His father came out and tried to talk to him, but he wouldn’t listen. The son said, ‘Look how many years I’ve stayed here serving you, never giving you one moment of grief, but have you ever thrown a party for me and my friends? Then this son of yours who has thrown away your money on whores shows up and you go all out with a feast!’

    31-32 “His father said, ‘Son, you don’t understand. You’re with me all the time, and everything that is mine is yours—but this is a wonderful time, and we had to celebrate. This brother of yours was dead, and he’s alive! He was lost, and he’s found!’”
