Happy September My little Sunflowers,

As you may or may not know, September, or summer and early fall, are peak sunflower season. And as you also may or may not know, I am often tardy for the party. But don’t be mad; I come bearing flowers. Sunflowers to be exact.

August was lit like a firecracker to be absolutely honest. But in this weird way that God works. It’s like He set an oven timer for my rebirth for about 2 ½ years and then when it dinged to indicate that I was properly baked, everything sped up and exploded in bloom all in 1 day and then it was a new life totally from the 2nd day on. It’s like the life of a sunflower. They don’t last for very long, but they are beautiful and colorful and actually last forever.

So now I’m finally out in the world after baking and receiving God’s love and peace for about 2 years pretty much in the house. And it’s like I’m a baby again encountering the world and interacting with the world with a new spirit. It’s a grand adventure and I am happy to be alive in God…again.

I love the fall, autumn. Maybe I will want to go apple picking. I’m from New England so I love the cold. I almost died from the humidity this summer. What rot. I gotta learn how to be on a bike again all throughout the city in August, and be in different livin situations in 90 degree heat with 90% humidity without an AC. OK OK God, I’m not complaining.

The only major update as far as around here goes is Informally God. You can check out new episodes here. The last several include some updates about what’s goin on with me (and God), and I’ve included them also below.

Understanding The Spirit
The Simplicity of God

September is all about “back to life, back to reality”, those lyrics from Caron Wheeler and the 90s British soul group Soul II Soul. It’s also back to school, but proper school education, secular education can never replace God’s spiritual understanding and education. You have that, you have everything. But I’ll leave you with the video and some music lyrics from “Back To Life (However Do You Want Me)”:

Back to life, back
to reality
Back to the here
and now, oh yeah

Back to life
Back to the
present time
Back from a
fantasy, yes
Tell me now, take
the initiative
I'll leave it in your hands
Until you're ready

Yes God!

I hope you have a Happy September, here’s to a happy September. 🌻
