“Thanks for the lovely compliments and encouragement you have given me over the years, sharing smiles of joy, laughter, and love around the world; Because I want to be known for the good service I can do and not known for the complaints and the murmuring that can take place in my mind, with God, family, and with friends” ~ Jon Barnes
Place your heart, mind, body, mouth, and movement into a permanent place of love, joy, peace, happiness, and cheer, so that you may cover up all the negative, bad things that will happen to you and around the people you love, especially your enemies. Let the love you have for God Kill your enemies with Kindness, which is the ultimate biblical lifestyle of practice and your weakness will be God’s Greatest Strength. Stop complaining about the past, which was 5 minutes ago!
Light up the world, which can be full of darkness, so that your love shines constantly, efficiently, and effectively with everything you say, think, and do. Don’t let the negative stuff drag your time, energy, hopes and dreams, into a black hole of despair and pity. The party starts and ends with you, so light it up, cheer up, and bring the cake of joy with you to change your world and grow the meaning of Love. Talk about your future, which is really now in the next second!
Your compliments, feelings, energies, words, and actions will push people into the right direction, whether they like it or not because they are constantly blessed by having you around and whatever your hand’s touch turns into Gold! Happiness is Golden, free, and intentional so place you mindset and options into God’s hands of freedom, liberty, love, contentment, and life. Stay in the moment, life is short!
Did you know that great things are built on the backs of slaves, the poor, and the underclass, while loving God and staying on task, in spite of the opposition and unfairness?

Plans for the Altar of Burnt Offering
27 “Using acacia wood, construct a square altar 7 1⁄2 feet wide, 7 1⁄2 feet long, and 4 1⁄2 feet high.[a] 2 Make horns for each of its four corners so that the horns and altar are all one piece. Overlay the altar with bronze. 3 Make ash buckets, shovels, basins, meat forks, and fire pans, all of bronze. 4 Make a bronze grating for it, and attach four bronze rings at its four corners. 5 Install the grating halfway down the side of the altar, under the ledge. 6 For carrying the altar, make poles from acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze. 7 Insert the poles through the rings on the two sides of the altar. 8 The altar must be hollow, made from planks. Build it just as you were shown on the mountain.
Plans for the Courtyard
9 “Then make the courtyard for the Tabernacle, enclosed with curtains made of finely woven linen. On the south side, make the curtains 150 feet long.[b] 10 They will be held up by twenty posts set securely in twenty bronze bases. Hang the curtains with silver hooks and rings. 11 Make the curtains the same on the north side—150 feet of curtains held up by twenty posts set securely in bronze bases. Hang the curtains with silver hooks and rings. 12 The curtains on the west end of the courtyard will be 75 feet long,[c] supported by ten posts set into ten bases.13 The east end of the courtyard, the front, will also be 75 feet long. 14 The courtyard entrance will be on the east end, flanked by two curtains. The curtain on the right side will be 22 1⁄2 feet long,[d] supported by three posts set into three bases. 15 The curtain on the left side will also be 22 1⁄2 feet long, supported by three posts set into three bases.
16 “For the entrance to the courtyard, make a curtain that is 30 feet long.[e] Make it from finely woven linen, and decorate it with beautiful embroidery in blue, purple, and scarlet thread. Support it with four posts, each securely set in its own base.17 All the posts around the courtyard must have silver rings and hooks and bronze bases. 18 So the entire courtyard will be 150 feet long and 75 feet wide, with curtain walls 7 1⁄2 feet high,[f] made from finely woven linen. The bases for the posts will be made of bronze.
19 “All the articles used in the rituals of the Tabernacle, including all the tent pegs used to support the Tabernacle and the courtyard curtains, must be made of bronze.
Light for the Tabernacle
20 “Command the people of Israel to bring you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to keep the lamps burning continually. 21 The lamp stand will stand in the Tabernacle, in front of the inner curtain that shields the Ark of the Covenant.[g]Aaron and his sons must keep the lamps burning in the Lord’s presence all night. This is a permanent law for the people of Israel, and it must be observed from generation to generation.
