My New Journey

First off I need to let you all know, this is Kim, Charlie’s sister. I won’t normally be writing here, and this is to tell you a few things I have learned in the short time I have been here, and to ask for YOUR guidance.

I love the community you all have become, I have seen differences of opinions dealt with in such love, and true concern and care for each other and it has touched me so deeply. You are a special bunch, and I am honored to be a part of this, I have not commented much on your comments because you all seem very capable of answering each other much better than I could. So again I ask you to be patient with me, I will more than likely comment with questions for you to help me with!

I will tell you that this has inspired me to study my Catechism ,my Bible, and of course the essential Catholicism for Dummies (haha), so I am busy reading a LOT these days, but I love it! So I feel like I have started a new journey of my own, and I am very excited about it. I pray for all of you and ask that you pray for me, Lord know’s I need it!

On a final note, feel free to ask me any questions about my brother, those I will be glad to answer!

Thank you all so much, Sincerely,

Kim

About Kim Johnston Hocutt

Hi all! I am Kim, Charlie's sister, I will be answering comments from now on unless something comes up that he absolutely needs to handle. I am 47, I live in Alabama, I have 2 wonderful son's, Matt, (26), and Denton (21). I am expecting my first grandchild from Matt and his beautiful wife Mandie, Sept.23rd, my youngest son Denton is a Hospital Corpsman in the Navy, for the Marines. I am so proud of both of them. I am Catholic, I love the Church dearly , and I am so thankful to be part of Her. I have Multiple Sclerosis, it is very challenging, but with medication, prayer, and lots of Doctor's lol, it is somewhat manageable. I look forward to getting to know all of you, and ask for your patience as I get settled in!

    WELCOME, on board, Kim! Thank you so much for being willing to take on this job of keeping us all going — much appreciated!

    Don’t get too worried about the “book learnin'” My father used to say, “A diploma plus a quarter will get you on the Staaten Island Ferry — the Ferry only ever cost a quarter — and now it is totally free. 🙂 It is so good to hear, however, that this challenge is helping you to grow in your Faith. I learn a lot from the good folks here — we are all helping each other.

    So, many blessings, and always allow us to help you in any way we can.

I thank God every day for this ‘family’ connection and prayerful support. Amen!

    P.S.
    After having the Lord grant me 70 winters here “up North,” we are looking to relocate to “Bama, prolly Huntsville. The many feet of snow we have had along with the many, many days of below zero temps, sheets of ice we used to call roads, and the isolation it brings has finally pounded some common sense into our cradle Catholic skulls. I guess my family’s ancestry of long lines of coal miners in Poland allowed my thick hide to endure so far, but there’s a limit!

          Gotta tell you crew dog the one and only time I heard our lovely elderly priest who visits us at times say something really funny was when he returned from Oklahoma several years ago. That was the year they had several ‘blizzards’ ‘ (snow squalls we call them here in Alaska). He said he was never so glad to be home in Alaska because those people in Oklahoma could not drive worth beans in the snow. So there you go. My poor brother lives in NH and has had to deal with all that snow on the East Coast this year. But we grew up in Watertown NY so we know what snow is. Even Alaska does not have that kind of snow.

    Dear Kim,

    I add my greetings and welcome as well. I was praying to the Lord and asking Him if there was anything He wanted me to add to the loving and wisdom filled words already expressed to you from the group, and He said to tell you (I’m going to paraphrase this) that it wasn’t Charlie that commissioned you to do this work, but it was the Lord. He chose you for this, and He will give you everything you need to do it according to His will. Do not fear, just trust and submit everything to Him before responding. I know that’s easier said than done, for when the Lord asks any of us to do anything for Him, at least in my case, I’m fear filled at first because I don’t want to fail Him. I always tell him I don’t want to make you look bad Lord. He’s got a fantastic sense of humor and he humors us. Just have fun and enjoy the mission!

    God bless you all!

    When and how did you find out that your brother was “special.” 🙂

    Liked by 1 person

    • Kim Johnston Hocutt says:

      Wow I could go so many places with that question!!! Haha!
      I actually found out when my now 21 year old son was about 4. He (my son) is also “special” with other things like my brother,he was saying some very disturbing things to me that a 4 year old should know absolutely nothing about. It was freaking me out. Finally one day he told me something that almost scared me right out of my skin, Larry (y’all will have to get used to me calling him Larry I have a hard time calling him Charlie), anyway he called me that evening and repeated word for word what my son said, I, not thinking started saying yes why would he say such a thing, it scared me to death, what the blank….and then it hit me, how in this world did Larry know what my son had said to me??????? Larry told me not to worry about what he had said, it was not meant to be taken literally. Well of course that was comforting but I wanted to know what was going on around here!!! So he told me to sit down, we had a looong conversation and he explained it all to me, and it made sense, and it was comforting because I realized that either he AND my son were lunatics, or something spiritual was going on with them, I chose to believe the latter!

At the moment I am teaching a class of 17 year olds Religion and Society three days a week. Amazing how they know absolutely nothing about the Bible or the faith and many of them have been in Catholic schools all their lives. But they seem to know little about literature, history or culture as well. Its a challenge. I think I am the first brother in a habit they have ever seen. An orthodox Jewish friend of mine came to speak to the class and it was the first time any of them had ever met a Jewish woman.

    Today is March 25 — Much Joy and many blessings on this most holy Feast of the Annunciation: God Incarnate/Son of Man, Jesus Christ, from the first moment of His conception by the Holy Spirit in the Blessed Virgin Mary. A truly great feast day!

    Holy Archangel Gabriel: “Hail! *Full of Grace* the word in the Greek text of St. Luke’s Gospel is Kecharitoumene (keh-CAR-eh-too-men-ee) The form and tense of this word does not merely mean, “highly favored” it parses out to: you are, and already have been before now, filled to overflowing with the Grace of the Holy Spirit.” It is used only one more time in the New Testament in reference to Jesus. So, that word is a very good *Scriptural* argument for the Immaculate Conception. Just sayin’.

    And her answer, “Fiat!” Let it BE according to your word! And Redemption began.

    Happy Feast Day, our Mother, our Queen!!

      I am so glad you pointed that out, EllenChris. (the fullest meaning of “full of grace.”) I ache sometimes to know how little readers/hearers of the Scriptures understand the deepest Truths it holds in the language.

      It’s also one of my favorite Feasts. Happy Annunciation Feast!

    YrsWelcome Kim , As you know this is a family in love with God. Also know that you and all your needs are in our love and prayers. Our son Thom fell from a scaffold while working on the new entrance of a Chapel while in his 20’s. He had successful surgery and lived with brain damage for many years but remained faithful and active in serving others until the Lord called him home with a aneurysm. right after Mass and was buried on all saints day. Our Lord is so Good. Again welcome to our family.

    Another great teaching from Mark Mallett including:

    ….So too, the Church has been conceived from the side of Christ “immaculately” as “one, holy, catholic, and apostolic” body. She was born at Pentecost “full of grace”, that is, she has received “every spiritual blessing in the heavens.” [2] But after 2000 years, God has a greater gift for the Church, and that gift is what John Paul II called a “new and divine holiness”, or what the Lord expressed to Servant of God Luisa Picaretta as the “gift of Living in the Divine Will”, or what He revealed to Elizabeth Kindelmann as the “Flame of Love” in order to bring about the Eucharistic reign of Christ to the ends of the earth. [3]

    As I wrote in The Great Liberation, there appears to be a convergence of prophecies as a single or series of related events: the Illumination, [4] the exorcism of the dragon, [5] the “Flame of Love”, [6] the alleged “secrets” of Medjugorje, [7] the gift of Living in the Divine Will, [8] the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, [9] a “new Pentecost”, [10] etc. All of this speaks of something “new”, a greater gift that has not been given before. In the approved messages to Elizabeth, Jesus speaks of a grace that is proceeding from the heart of Mary to the Church and the world:

    …the Spirit of Pentecost will flood the earth with his power and a great miracle will gain the attention of all humanity. This will be the effect of grace of the Flame of Love… which is Jesus Christ himself… something like this has not happened since the Word became flesh. —The Flame of Love, p. 61, 38, 61; from Elizabeth Kindelmann’s diary; 1962; Imprimatur Archbishop Charles Chaput

    What a gift for linking everything occurring now and into the very near future….and everything always solid:

    Oh yes, I just wanted to add that it struck me that the response to the Psalm on the Feast of the Annunciation “Here I am Lord, I come to do Your Will” is what Charlie is trying to tell us to do.☺
