One of the traditions that many churches celebrate from time to time is that of the lighting of the Advent Candles, reminding us for five weeks before Christmas, of another aspect of God becoming man in the Person of Jesus Christ.
We have recently looked at a€?Prophecya€? a€“ the predictive emphasis of the first candle, unique to the Judeo-Christian Bible and, the following week, a€?Bethlehema€?, the lowly place to exemplify the Humility of Christ, for the second candle. 8A And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. It was to these shepherds in the fields on the outskirts of Bethlehem, watching their flocks by night that God chose to proclaim the most important announcement in the history of the world! Anda€¦why does the occupation of a€?Shepherdinga€? permeate the history of Goda€™s Chosen People?
When Joseph, as governor of Egypt, brought his father, brothers and family into Egypt, they were introduced to Pharaoh as shepherds. David was a shepherd before he became King of Israel, and then he became a€?shepherda€? over Israel. 71A from following the nursing ewes he brought him to shepherd Jacob his people, Israel his inheritance.
5A Then all the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, a€?Behold, we are your bone and flesh.
We normally do not see many shepherds guiding their flocks through the streets and pathways in North America, so we who may have never seen a living shepherd might equate them as a truly a€?outdoora€? person a€“ maybe someone similar to our image of a cowboy a€“ spending nights around a campfire, being ever attuned to the wild environment around his flock or herd.
Why did God choose shepherds for this amazing announcement and for a continuing pattern of leadership for His Body? If there were one attitude depicting responsible leadership and personal care that God wanted to reinforce on the hearts of His people a€“ it would be the humble, responsible care evidenced by shepherds. 12A Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand and marked off the heavens with a span, enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance?
Who taught him the path of justice, and taught him knowledge, and showed him the way of understanding? 15A Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket, and are accounted as the dust on the scales; behold, he takes up the coastlands like fine dust. God wants Leadership under His Authority to Exemplify His Characteristics of being Good Shepherds!
A true Shepherda€™s attitude epitomizes who God is and how He wants His servants to respond to those under their care and responsibility. Did God reveal the message of Christa€™s Birth to those shepherds in the Judean fields beside Bethlehem, to point out the qualities of Responsible Carea€¦as qualities He wants Children of His Kingdom to replicate? Why did God choose shepherds for this amazing announcement by His angels and for a continuing pattern of leadership for His Body? Dads, moms, older brothers and sisters, those who care for those who are less fortunate, those who care for any in the Family of God, leaders in the Church, mature Christians a€“ a Shepherda€™s attitude is an example for us all! God also wants us to be aware that He has Special and Powerful Spiritual Angelic Representatives who interact in the lives of those on earth and are Attentive to His Will. May we serve God faithfully with the humble responsible care in the attitude of Shepherds and may we realize that God has many angels and powerful means to fulfill His will! Pilates Studio Ashland - Testimonials ?My name is Rose Singarella. I am confident that you will benefit immensely with Belkis and Pilates. I cannot tell you the number of times I have heard a€?Youa€™re doing agility with a SHIBA?a€? Even more interesting is the fact that the comment was made by people who have shiba companions.
I would like to present a theory that it is not the shiba that cannot do agility (or obedience or rally for that matter), but rather it is the trainer that has not cracked the shiba code.
Leta€™s compare what we know about shiba temperament from our breed standard with the characteristics of a good working dog. A shiba is not a Golden Retriever a€“ that is to say, a Shiba will not perform the same task over and over just for the joy of pleasing you. This Cessna 195 Web-site is one of the most valuable assets a Cessna 195 owner has to learn about maintaining, flying, or just enjoying his airplane. My mom Carolyn Reynolds was killed skydiving on March 27, 1970 in Jefferson County, Colorado. The post alone is enough to bring tears to your eyes, Miki was looking for any information about the mother she didna€™t remember.
I gave the information to Charmian and she immediately emailed Miki with her cell phone number.
Friday afternoon, 13 August, 2010 everything seemed to come together and we pulled the 195 out of the hangar for a 9 AM departure. Salida isna€™t a large town but we found a nice place for lunch then drove into the old town and parked along the Arkansas River.
I started to notice a few butterflies flying around in my stomach about then, maybe this wasna€™t going to be as easy as I thought. Miki and Willie showed us their river raft and suggested we drag it down to the river and go for a ride. It was about 2 hours until sundown when we finished storing the raft back at the house and Miki expressed an interest in flying in the plane.


I flew down the Arkansas River, retracing our raft trip earlier in the afternoon, then back over Salida and marveled at the mountains surrounding the countryside.
Cooper moved the wheel gently left to see what would happen while I pressed the left rudder to help bank the airplane.
I think he would have continued banking back and forth for an hour if we would have let him but I began to notice signs of distress from Miki and I thought she probably had experienced enough of flying for this evening. We met back at Mikia€™s house and as I walked past little Coopera€™s room I noticed he was finishing up his macaroni & cheese. Soon enough I got to my beer and after finishing it we left the house and walked to the restaurant in town and sat down for a memorable dinner with Miki and her family. The next day our flight back to Denver was as enjoyable as the day before and, as we pushed the old Cessna 195 back into the hangar we contemplated what we had just done.

We vowed to keep in touch with Miki and her family and hope to have them over soon.A  I cana€™t wait to take little Cooper up in the J-3. 9A And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear.
17A And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 2A In times past, when Saul was king over us, it was you who led out and brought in Israel. 17A All the nations are as nothing before him, they are accounted by him as less than nothing and emptiness. We walked around for an hour or so until Miki called and said she would meet us in the park.
We walked around for an hourA  or so until Miki called and said she would meet us in the park. I pre-flighted the 195 and began the briefing with my three passengers, Charmian would stay on the airport so the backseat would be more comfortable for Willie and Cooper.
I let him roll back and forth for a few minutes then sort of nudged the nose down to gain some speed and pitched up into a gentle wingover to the left.A  He wasna€™t so sure about the wingover at first and glanced back and forth nerviously, he almost immediately started laughing and giggling with delight as the ground came back into view on the left side.
12A He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. I was diagnosed with 4 bulging discs in my lower back. By the time I got to Belkis I was desparate for the right kind of help. So far no one was able to really help me and the medical profession just basically told me I had to be on pain killers the rest of my life, and probably headed for surgery, which was not an option for me as I am super health conscious and only consider medication and surgery as a last resort. Upon my first meeting with Belkis I knew intuitively that she was right for me. 20A And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. The Salida airport was virtually deserted when we arrived but finally another pilot walked around the hangar and was drawn to our highly polished 195 like a magnet.
I know my own and my own know me, 15A just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.
I let him roll back and forth for a few minutes i??then sort of nudged the nose down to gain some speed and pitched up into a gentle wingover to the left.
Her vision of whats right for the individual person, knowing exactly what to do for them is unique, and makes her one of a kind.  When I first started working out with Belkis I was in a lot of chronic pain and extreme weakness.
We will provide you with 3 hours of studio time andA a fun Kenpo KarateA class for all of your guests.
Within 6 weeks of working with her I was well on my way to being pain free and rapidly become structurally stable and stronger. However, as it is used here, it includesA the management of the house and everything that happens in that house. Thus, a€?rulinga€? onea€™s household would include how a leader manages his home life, his children, the upkeep of the physical house or apartment where he lives, and his personal finances. All of this would be part of his oikos a€” his house.A Important information about how well potential leaders will serve at church or at work can beA ascertained by delving into these four points.
I do it at least 2 to 3 times per week, only one on one.It is very very important that you have a one on one trainer to keep you safe and doing it properly. One of the most strategic factors to consider when selecting new married leaders is the conditionA of their marriage. Although you cana€™t make this a hard and fast rule, most often the children of potential leaders are a reflection of the kind of leadership those candidates are currently exercising in their own home.A Since people can impart only what they have in their private lives, it is good to observe what potential leaders have imparted within their own homes. She studied at Joe Pilates' original studio with teachers directly in his lineage, and thus she can offer both the classic workouts to your level of intensity, or do sensitive, individually-tailored rehab work.


If theya€™re not leading their own homes with excellence, why would you imagine they could lead an entire division of the ministry with excellence? If you want "real Pilates" and real results, see Belkis on Maui!!!September 28, 2008~ Jessica Keith, Owner, Aloha Pilates  ?worked directly with Belkis at Real Pilates Maui????                                                                                                                           Belkis is a wonderful teacher with an incredible amount of knowledge.
Belkis prepared me before I went to receive my training to get certified in Joseph Pilates.
One thing is for sure: If a potential leader cana€™t decently take care of his own domain, youA dona€™t want to put him in charge ofA your domain.
Her presence, her knowledge of the body and Pilates, and her figure, speaks for the exquisite power of Pilates. It tells a lot about his personal integrity, his character, and how he respects the rights of others.
I am amazed by her brilliance and sharpness in "seeing" the tiny subleties of her clients form and dysfunction.
When a person doesna€™t regularly pay hisbills on time, he inconveniences and upsets other peoplea€™s financial plans. This failure to keep financial commitments often reflects a lack of respect for othersa€™ needs and rights.A It also may simply be a sign that this person is immature in his understanding of money management and responsibility. The transformation that takes place under the consistent care, and training with Belkis will astound you. She is compassionate, gentle, and exudes inner and outer strength and confidence, and that supports her clients in feeling special and safe. A persona€™s financial problems may also be an indicator that hea€™s experiencing problems in his marriage as well. Or perhaps his life is unstable due to irregular work conditions.A No matter which of these factors may be the cause for a candidatea€™s financial problems, they are all serious enough to require thoughtful consideration on your part. Belkis has made a huge impact on many peoples lives, especially mine, sincerely assisting them in becoming stronger, sleeker, healthier and happier. Does this person have the time, energy, or maturity to handle a position of greater responsibility in your church, ministry, or organization?A Never forget that it is impossible to separate a persona€™s public life from his private life. She is one of a kind, a true master of her craft!Respectfully yours,                                                        ~ Rose Singarella                                                                                                                            ? ?I have worked with Belkis for six years since I came to Maui in 2005.
What is in a potential leadera€™s personal life is exactly what he will bring into his public life.A If he has order and peace in his private life, it will give him a solidfoundation for public ministry. I also studied while I was in UK for four years until 2005.I started Pilates  on the East Coast with New York  (Romana) trained teachers in NJ and then in Bermuda with a studio also with NY trained teachers and who brought inother instructors for short term assignments  from all over the USA and Canada during the four years I lived there. In the process, I experienced many different outlooks on the development of Pilates methodology in recent years.In my opinion, Belkis has all the elements of a first class instructor. If this is the case, what do these things reveal about those people who are being consideredA for leadership at church, business, or organization?
Besides teaching "core" Pilates, she has the empathy in my case to understand the failings of a 70 year old body and the understanding to make the classes fun and instructive on a long term basis.
Since what is happening in my privateA life is exactly what I will bring into my public life, I want to bring more order into my ownA personal affairs. Help me take an honest look at my life so I can see those areas that desperatelyA need my attention. Once I acknowledge the areas that need fixing, please give me the courageA to delve into those areas and to get things right. She knows the body well and she keeps                                        a sharp eye on your movements to make sure you get the best results. The way I handle my familyA life, my children, my physical home, and my finances brings glory to Jesus Christ. I am seriousA about my walk with God, and I therefore invite Him to invade every sphere of my life and toA bring it under His Lordship. If you are seeking new leadership for the church, business, or organization, have you considered these deeper issues? If you had considered this before selecting leaders in the past, do you think it would have helped you make better leadership choices?A 2. Have you seen glaring problems in a potential leadera€™s home that you overlooked because his gifts and talents were needed? Did you later regret your choice because he brought many of those same problems to his job?A 3.
