woman by the sea

@starchillcd continued from HERE

I uh-…” Work doesn’t allow her to partake. Alcohol doesn’t fog her senses, unlike the Spencer elder, so what was the point of this awkward exchange again? Spent all this time and energy actively trying to AVOID this woman ever since she’d caught wind of her being on this rusty sea-tub, and now here she is, sharing a downtime drink with her. Why? Some kind of ‘closure’…? A bid to pick her oblivious mind of its information on Him?

Shit, she still has to answer her too, doesn’t she.

“…Sometimes, yeah.” Maybe even more than just ‘sometimes’. She hasn’t quite sorted all those feelings into neat little ‘boxes’ just yet. River sips lightly at her juice, “How did you do it? How do you forget someone ‘just like that’, I couldn’t do it even when I was-… Away from him.”

Although Stella’s story changes from verse to verse in order to adapt to the context of the plot’s realm, the archetypal themes she embodies persist. Stella may be a woman/goddess/seraph/etc. who is of the sea, but her destiny rests with the stars.  This sets her apart from her sister and even sows bitter seeds into both maidens’ hearts. While Shirley, Stella’s sister, evidently embraces the power and the culture of the sea, the people of the mainland do not shy away from expressing their contempt and fear of what and who Shirley represents. Mankind/the in-group cannot welcome Shirley, and they instead seek to control and possess her for their selfish gain.

As Shirley’s guardian, Stella is the guiding starlight that watches over her sister from above. Stella epitomizes the female figure who is always beyond everyone’s reach.  The more you seek her, the greater the gap you’d find between yourself and the star you’re chasing after.  Stella represents the love that watches over all creation,  but also the ethereal because of how set apart she is from the rest of civilization.

Stella is light.  You can see her, but you could never really touch her.

Sy looked at the young woman before him, begging passage to Essos. She was a pretty little thing, and it was not like his crew was superstitious about women aboard. A good number of the crew were women, and he wondered if that was why the girl had chosen to ask travel on The Bravo. Most found the black ship too intimidating, which was good as it meant that cowards who would tell of pirates usually kept away. If he took the girl on board, he would not be able to launch any raids on merchant ships. The captain had to take a moment to debate this, she was beautiful and he had to decide if taking her aboard was worth it. A smile came to his lips as he decided to go for it. “Of course, love. Where is your destination? White Harbor to…?”

( @sapphiism liked for Ava )

     Whale watching? Are you joking? I’d love to go! Ava smiles and laughs in delight, pulling Margot close to her for a massive kiss. Oh, I’ve never been on an expedition to exclusively whale-watch before…Amelie is going to be so excited too, you have no idea how much she’s going to adore this trip. The burdens of marrying a woman with an obsession for sea creatures and a daughter who takes after her…

Bionic Breed

“…You Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family. Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. …the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself. “ Eph 2:19-20NLT

Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in His sight,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.
A song written in the 1800’s by Clare Herbert Woolston, depicts— God doesn’t see skin color.

As Louis was reading Ephesians 2 this morning, a picture came into my mind. During the early 1990’s we attended a church in Michigan: Picked the church by its telephone book name. We were greeted by a black woman and an oriental man. In the sanctuary, I looked around at the sea of faces. Congregation topped one thousand plus, made up of every ethnic background. Blacks, whites, orientals, India descent Indians, Malaysians, and Mexicans too. For the racist at heart, this church would’ve been disturbing. To me, it was a taste of heaven.

Did you know according God sees only two races on earth— Jew and Gentile? Every person who becomes a Christian is born out of their ethnic Gentile family, into the family of God and His DNA.
2Cor 5:17NASB “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature…”
Eph 2:10-11NLT. “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Don’t forget that you Gentiles used to be outsiders. You were called “uncircumcised heathens” by the Jews, who were proud of their circumcision, even though it affected only their bodies and not their hearts.”
Col 1:27NASB “to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

Through Jesus’ death and resurrection God was busy making a new race, God’s family. This breed is made up of what humans call every race, including Jews, every DNA order under the sun. By infusing this race with POWER from the Holy Spirit He made us the Bionic Breed.
Jesus said: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:…” Acts 1:8KJV.
“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.” Lu 10:19NASB
“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.” Mt 10:8NASB.

Paul informed us how God created this new breed in 2Cor 5:21NASB. “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Afterwards Paul informed us of our superpower garments and weapons inEph 6:14-17TLB, “you will need the strong belt of truth and the breastplate of God’s approval. Wear shoes that are able to speed you on as you preach the Good News of peace with God. In every battle you will need faith as your shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed at you by Satan. And you will need the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit—which is the Word of God.” I once heard a preacher say, the armor makes us look like Jesus. The devil can’t tell the difference between us.

Are you still concerned with your ethnicity? Living like you’re simply human?  I’m going to live Bionic. How about you? It’s your choice. You choose.

PRAYER: Papa I’m so glad that You aren’t like humans. You didn’t divide by color, but by love. You loved the Jew first, then the Gentiles. Thank You! Help us to see how powerful you have made us to serve You, in Jesus’ name I pray.
