Stirring an Anointing…. or how to turn oil into a gift, a tutorial.

December 1, 2011

In a misunderstood season of get how can we pass on the gift of giving?






we will  anoint another generation to serve.

With warmth and teaching we can  inject into a day ~to gather simple things together for a greater purpose.



drop we anoint them

We stir the stories of gifts given to us by the generations before ….which led us here…

we stir in the new stories

We inspire the act of giving


we give giving value again

We teach joy in the giving.

We bring beauty and meaning to the Season

Because Everything was given to us.

And with everything we should serve

Drop by drop we anoint the lips of our friends and family

with a gift of our time … our  abilities


It’s never been about just us.

Our gifts are just on loan to us.

What good are they to anyone if we can’t pass them on,

if we can’t bless others.

Where is the “Be Glorified” in tucking our gifts away?

So we use our anointing …We step out


and in this misunderstood season of get we use what we have been given

Because it has never been about us…

and they are watching…. always watching to see how we respond.

Will we blush red for others to know…

or will we walk with assurance and grace…

Can we serve?

Walk out in strength…

Walking out to Gather and to give….

with no hope of how much we can get….

just how we can anoint …how we can bless

Being an example of giving…and not of getting.

That speaks deep to people.

To bring them anointing …simple oils to bless.


~Trouble understanding how to Receive a Gift or you want to visit the beach on this cold day:

What the Shells are saying.

How to Receive When you Don’t know how!

~What can Gathering look like:

Snow Boots in a Throne Room.

Dodging the Gathering.
~Passing on gifts from other Generations:
Gifts Learned
Stitched out of a Ditch.
What provision looks like.

~Sometimes the first thing you need, is to Forgive…and oh baby I have been there:
Amish Forgiveness.
Lines in the Sand.
Grateful Forgiveness.
What Forgiveness looks like.

      It really is all about infusing this time of year with turning their heads from themselves to others.
      thank you for the compliment….it was a simple project.. I had always thought, in the past, it would be difficult… but it was under 25 mins to complete…and very little cleanup.

      If we knew we could nothing more out of the relationship then we already had that would be enough…
      Always good to see you,
