The Flood

 
So, it was a very rainy summer here in Florida in 2015. I spent most of the 23 days of straight rain praying for it to stop. Wondering why it hadn't all along the way? After so many people had flooding and loss of finances through horrible conditions due to all the rain, my heart just broke.
Where were the answers? What was going on here?
The steady rain turned everyday people into victims!
 
The news was so hard to watch as picture after picture on the television showed what devastation came with rivers over flowing and sewer systems backing up due to the wet conditions.
Peoples cars no longer could get them to safety. The waters were much to deep. Roads were coming apart, pot holes were everywhere and driving was now unsafe! Kids couldn't get to school. Power was out in thousands of homes. Animals were having a hard time in the fields staying free from drowning. Fish were swimming on my front street. That was very strange indeed!
 It was starting to hit my neighborhood now just as it had the ones I had watched on T.V.  The over flowing rivers were causing such damage. With one more day of rain, I thought, we won't be getting out of this neighborhood at all without a boat and the house will flood for sure.
 Like so many others we will be prisoners of the rain!
I now understood very clearly how Mother nature had control of the state. After all, Florida is already a peninsular. I wondered if it was going to rearrange itself right here and now?
 
Day by day I watched the lake we live on (Park Lake) creep closer and closer to the back door. First the deck on the lake was covered with water, then the chairs were under water, then the table was under water, then the entire lawn disappeared from sight. The Fire pit in the back yard was under water. Fish were swimming feet from my back door, the turtles were laying in what small yard I had left. When was it going to end?
I threw myself on the floor and started to pray, Please GOD, help us NOW!
 
Then the reprieve came. The rain finally stopped!
23 total days here in Pasco county. It had taken it's toll. Why did this have to happen?
I wondered, Why had so many had to loose all they had to the deep waters of 23 days of straight rain?
 
The meteorologists said it was a freak thing. They hadn't seen this coming. It lasted far too long.
Why is it that when the weather acts this way we never really are prepared for it?
Pasco county found out way to late after the fact that nothing was handled well in the situation. We were ill prepared for this type of weather and NOW we would make many new changes for how to rethink how things should be handled, should we ever have to deal with this again in the future.
Our state was declared a state of emergency!
 
I wondered about the spiritual aspect of it all.
Is there a connection with the weather and the Powers that be?
Were we all being warned? Was it a wake up call? What were we to see spiritually from all this? 
I happen to believe all things are connected in this life!
 
Then I was reminded that we have been in an 8 year time of retrogrades and many negative things, teaching us lessons and coming to an end. It all started in 2008. And here we are now gearing up to the end of 2015, making way for the releases and the new hope of 2016! The year of completion.
Perhaps this was actually an ushering out of all the past? A flood of change was on the way. A beginning to a new day. A turn of celestial events!
Then It all made sense.
The universe truly does connect with us spiritually.   
What is to come is clearly now set to move forward. Old things have been cleansed from us, ways of thinking and living and being. (That is if we are awake to it.  Yes, it will happen anyway to all of us as we are all moving in the same direction here on the earth, but we do not all see clearly what is happening to us).  New understandings and spiritual growth are on the way to us.  2015 was beginning to be cleansed from us and 2016 was starting it's way to us. Like we were starting to shed 2015 like an old skin and prepare for the new skin that will take us into 2016.
It's a new day coming, a long awaited for, new day!
 
Now the rains made sense, it was as if we were seeing what was happening to us all in the spiritual realm. The flood had come and now the new would take shape.
The forecasted influences of the spiritual world we live in but cannot see with our naked eye were making itself known to us. But we had to understand this. This is what is always happening right under our noses and yet if we are not in tune, we do not see.
GOD never leaves us clueless, HE just asks us to pay attention. To ask, seek and knock.
To be in touch with our inner reality.
 
So as I contemplate all this before me in this life, the life I have been chosen to live, I now see why we go through things we cant control. It's just not all about us individually. It's about all of us as humans and what we walk through while we are here in the land of the living!
 
Floods will always bring fresh new ground. It's their nature.
Change is always hard, but I do welcome it.
 Goodbye 2015.
Hello 2016, the year of completions.
What might lie ahead?

A Sunday to Remember!


So, this Sunday was like none other.
It was 1978.
 
Unknown to me, Divine intervention was on the menu today.
I woke up and got my day going as I always had.
I was so excited thinking about this up coming week as  I would head out tomorrow for my very first interview into the Dental field to see about an amazing new career I had applied for. I knew my life was about to change forever once I enter the working world.
 
So today,  I would spend my Sunday watching the children playing in the front yard. I would focus on family. Just my two boy's. The joy of life. Running here and running there. Yelling and laughing with one another without a care in the world. They were so adorable. Brothers loving each other and having a wonderful time. I sat watching them thinking with my new job coming up days like this may be few and far between, I knew I needed to take in the joys of Motherhood with no other concerns on my mind. It will be hard to be away from the children but I need to help with mounting bills and accept the responsibilities of becoming a working parent.
 
I got up to pour myself another cup of coffee in the kitchen, I heard a loud sound outside and I turned back for a second to see a huge orange church bus go past the living room window. As it did I noticed the name on the bus in that instant, I got my coffee and came back to my chair in the living room to watch the boys outside and enjoy them for just a bit more before I started my day's work.
 
I didn't see them in the front yard anymore. I thought to myself, they must have gone to the back yard. So I got up and went to the kitchen window and I looked outside. It was so quite.
Where were the those children?
I went back to the front window and looked out again.
That's strange, I thought, where the heck did they run off to so quickly, I was away from the window for two minutes
I felt the boys were too young to leave the front yard without me and they knew to stay where I could see them.
But where were they?
I threw my slippers on and went out front. I yelled to the boys, but they were no where in sight. I walked around the house, I yelled for them again.
Then as I stood there in the back yard fear gripped my heart!
Had they been taken on that bus? No way, how could something like that happen? No! That's crazy. My boys would never get on a strange bus! I kept shouting for the boys. I walked to the end of the street, I didn't see them anywhere. I called for them over and over. With each shout, my mind ran faster and faster. My heart started pounding with fear! Would my boys have gotten on that bus? What bus driver would take two small boys without their parent?
Where the heck are they?
Why would a church bus take my boy's without a signed permission slip, this kept running through my mind? What kind of bus driver would let strange children get on his bus? What was the name on that bus again I thought?
With that I ran into the house and grabbed my car keys, and off I went! I was so mad thinking how could someone pick up children they don't even know? Why would they do something like that?      I drove so fast I was shocked I wasn't pulled over by the police!
I was at the church in five minutes. I parked the car out front and ran up the stairs of the church and into the main hallway!
With that I yelled very loud, Jason & Joshua are you here?
I yelled again as I headed for the first closed door. My anger was off the charts? I was so afraid something had happened to them!
A sweet blonde haired woman came out into the hall just then and said, May I help you? What's going on?
I said I think someone driving one of your buses took my children! My two young boys! Are they here?
She asked me how old they were and what area of town I lived in.
I told her they were 5 and 3 and we lived in the central city.
She smiled and said, Oh yes, I remember them, I drive that bus, I did pick up 2 small boy's who were at the bus stop. They're so adorable, What are their names she said while she was smiling at me?
What! I was so mad, I said to her, "How could you"?
What kind of an idiot are you? I was furious with this woman, I yelled at her and said, "why would you pick up two small boys you don't even know that don't belong to your church and ride them away from their home"? How could you do such a thing with such young boys? I told her, I was worried out of my mind! What's wrong with you? What kind of a church are you running here? You should be ashamed of yourself! I was sick with worry!
Thank GOD I saw your bus and knew where they may have been taken!
"Get my children for me NOW", I demanded!
 
With that, the woman went and got Jason and Joshua and I grabbed their hands and marched them off to the car.
It was then I realized I was in public in my old brown nightgown and slippers! Oh my word!
I hadn't even combed my long hair yet this morning, It must look like a rats nest! Oh my word, I thought to myself as I was walking towards the car, I must look and sound like a witch to that lady!
I didn't care! I found my babies, that's all I cared about!
 
All the way home I reprimanded the boys for doing such a terrible  thing leaving home like that!
I explained how dangerous it was for them to get in a car or bus with strangers without Mommy and Daddy's permission.
I was crying with tears of joy that I had found my boys safe, but I was still so mad and afraid for them!
 
Once home we all settled into our normal routines after many hugs and kisses and enjoyed the rest of the day.
 
Monday finally came and off I went into the working world for my new career interview. I was so excited. I spent all morning getting ready for the big day. I wanted to have my best foot forward and look amazing for this job interview. I was so excited!
Off I went.
I entered the office and signed in and took my seat. I waited patiently for my turn. There were almost twelve women waiting for an interview along with me. I was feeling as if my balloon of hope was deflating. How could I stand a chance getting this job with so many others also applying.
I thought to myself, well, it's in the LORDS hands. I'm not going to worry about it.
 
My name was finally called and I was escorted down a long hall and into a room to have another seat. I was told Mrs. Cheneville would be right in to speak with me.
So, I waited a bit more and then the door opened.
To my surprise there in front of me was that woman!
The woman whom I had screamed at in the hallway of the church! The woman who picked up my children! Who I had called an idiot!OH MY WORD!
She is the one doing my interview!
Oh, I'm never going to get this job, Oh, I wish I could run! This is a total disaster!
With that, she smiled so sweetly at me and said, Oh dear, you're the woman from yesterday with the boys from the bus!
"yes" I said as I looked down towards the floor. I said in a very soft humbled voice , I'm so sorry for acting as I did, I was just so afraid!
She smiled and said, I was up all night feeling so bad about what I had done too. She said I thought your boys were a part of the church. They ran up to the bus as soon as it stopped and jumped on in and took a seat as if they always had done it. She said she hadn't had my area route for a while and wasn't sure who belonged on the bus or not actually. Then she apologized profusely to me.
We both laughed. She said, I came to see your point however. We will be much  more careful in the future with who we pick up!
With that she said, Oh and by the way, You're hired!
She said my resume was exactly what she had been looking for and since our encounter at the church she was sure I was the person for the job. She said, I know you'll do the right thing in any circumstance!
 
I spent the next 18 years in this career and rose to the top of my field. She became my closest and dearest friend even to this day.
You just can't make this stuff up.
Truth is always stranger than fiction!

A New Eureka for today


So, I was sound asleep last night October 13th, 2015 having a strange dream and I woke up for just a brief moment to hear the LORD speaking to me.
This has happened many times over my life so I don't freak out when this happens anymore. I have come to expect it and am always extremely grateful for the exchange and vocal visitation.
 
I had been having a very troubling dream which isn't odd for me at all but this dream was as if I were partially awake.
Dreams can feel very real. But they are still just dreams. Many people confuse dreams for reality especially upon waking.
Dreams never usually mean what they seem to, but the dream specifically belongs to the dreamer for sure, and each dream must be examined upon waking for it's true meaning.
Had I not known for sure I was dreaming and then woke up I would have been a bit confused myself. I hate it when that happens.
You have to know the difference, it's very important, otherwise we would all live in dreamland.
My dream was that I had been frightened by someone approaching me in the dream and appearing as someone he was not. He spoke to me and even got into my bed pretending he was someone I knew and loved. Then in my dream I realized this in fact was not my good friend at all. Startled and concerned, I woke up.
I sat straight up in bed now I was sure I was fully awake.
This person in my dream was Just  someone appearing to be my friend. He was not there to be friendly towards me.
Now sitting up and rubbing my eyes, I heard the LORD say to me,
"Do you see how they shape shift", 
"Was this your friend"?,  I answered the LORD out loud as I sat on my bed and said, "No", it wasn't"!
He said then to me, "This is Truth".
 
It was as if HE answered me in a parable,
that just vibrated through me and illuminated my understanding as I thought through the dream, when HE spoke to me.
I had an epiphany! I realized I had clarity on this from the LORD.
I realize this is my answer. (I pray you can find yours!)
 
I understood the LORD to have told me that the spirits who come to us are  actually demons that can shape shift. right before our eyes. 
They are NOT spirits of our loved ones if they materialize!
When we think we are seeing spirits of someone we knew in this life, or we  currently know, and they are not physically actually here with us, we are clearly being tricked by demons and their well planned schemes. They are very clever at this deception. They lead us willing down a destructive road. We follow because we are so curious. Deeper and deeper into a false reality.
 
I sat there on the bed for a moment and pondered what I had just heard.
I have always believed that everything created was created by GOD.
I also believe that there are Angels, Demons, Aliens,  other species. and Humans, In that order, that were created as well.
The LORD had just pointed out clearly to me that ghosts, spirits and ethereal sightings are actually demonic in nature. They trick us. They shape shift. They deceive us. This may seem hard to believe. But I know this is TRUTH.
So what are DEMONS?
 
Truthfully, they are nothing more than fallen angels. Who have been sent here to destroy, lie and deceive. They live in the heaven we see with our eyes. The first heaven if you will. The sky as we see and know it. They have been assigned this destiny for a season.
How can this be possible? The Bible gives the account that Satan, the ruler of the fallen angels and the father of lies, was cast down to  earth from heaven, with a third of angels assigned to his care who also "fell" along with him from where the LORD of Glory abides. His name once he fell at that point was changed from Lucifer (A covering Arch angel) to satan or the devil.
His cohort who fell with him became demons.
He was cast here to serve an allotted time and seasons on the earth.
Which the time allotted is not certain and no man knows.
He is called the prince small "P" and power small "P" of the air. He has dominion over the first heaven. That is the sky we see with the naked eye.
The second heaven is the cosmos, the third is where GOD dwells as I mentioned earlier.
He and his entourage are free to roam about looking for those to devour. Not physically, but spiritually with lies and tricks and schemes.
 
So why has this epiphany come now regarding that satan himself is behind all the deception, not ghosts or spirits?  Well, I firmly believe that as I seek and ask GOD to reveal truth to me,
HE will. And HE has.
 
So why is this significant? Because many people are  being tricked and even tortured by seeing spirits, ghosts and the like thinking them to be who they claim or appear to be. They are not who they say they are. They are deceiving people. They have only your soul in mind to destroy from receiving the Truth. The allotted time makes them crafty and cruel. You think you see a loved one, it's clearly not a loved one.
It is their image, it is even their voice, but it is not them.
Each of us needs to look into this truth for ourselves. It will come to you as a revelation from the LORD. Or not.
 
But if you Ask, Seek and Knock for truth, GOD will answer you.
As HE has me. But don't believe me, find out for yourself.
I know there are psychics and teachers who will strongly disagree with me. That's OK.
Truth is always stranger than fiction!

The Fervent Prayers of Many

So, Yesterday I was in serious pain, after I sprained my ankle doing yard word. I had fallen over a tree stump in the yard and scraped my leg and ankle on the darn thing as I fell backwards onto my back and shoulder. Hard! My ankle instantly swelled to a huge nob! My neck was hurting and my thigh where I landed squarely on the tree stump. OUCH! I crawled along the grass into the house on my hands and knees and my son Jason helped me into a wheelchair he resurrected from the garage for me. My foot had swollen so large it literally felt as if it were going to explode. The bleeding areas were so swollen I actually wondered if the darn ankle was going to pop open? The pain was just so severe I could hardly believe a small sprain could present this much discomfort. I wondered if it might be more than a sprain? .
I immediately had Jason prepare the couch for me with pillows and blankets. We immediately elevated the leg. I was so grateful this hadn't happened to me while I was home alone! I can't imagine having to crawl from couch to freezer on my knees hurting this bad! Yikes, my prayers immediately went out to those who suffer something like this all alone! I felt so blessed to have Jason there with me. I was crying from the pain but not being alone was such a blessing!
I was crying as I tried to transfer from the wheelchair to the couch. Screaming actually.
Jason made an ice pack for me as I yelled where to find the zip lock bags and towel.
Putting the ice pack on this ankle was like torture to it.
I laid there trying to assess my situation.
I decided I was going to live! LOL. But it was going to be uncomfortable for a few days.
 
I had Jason prepare dinner with me yelling instructions from the couch. It was really hysterical actually. I found something funny about everything he did. Men in the kitchen! It's a trip.
 
Three hours passed with me on the couch and I needed to get up to head to the restroom. Jason got the old crutches from the garage and off I went screaming the entire way.
I thought to myself maybe I should head off to the Emergency Room?
 
I didn't want to go to the ER for an x-ray as I knew it would be painful somehow. Never the less
I had Kevin who was now home from work call my Humana plan to prepare me to go to the emergency room. It took me till about 9:00pm to submit to going for x-rays now as the pain was so severe I couldn't take it another second.  I thought I may have really fractured something.
Kevin made all the calls for me and I got my clearance from Humana and was preparing to go. But, then I became so sleepy,  It just came on me. It was like all the Advil I had taken just kicked in  all at once and I could not keep my eyes open.  I couldn't fathom getting up and heading to the ER. 
 
Just then I tried to move off the couch just a tad, and a horrific charley horse hit this already distraught foot of mine. I must have awoken the neighbors I screamed so loud.
Both Kevin and Jason almost started crying they were so afraid for me in my pain. I know I was scaring them but I was in pain. They wanted to help me but clearly couldn't. The charley horse travelled up my leg as I was screaming so loud it sounded like I was being murdered. I really did try to stop screaming, but the pain in this swollen foot was just off the charts.
The swelling was now throbbing along with the charley horse! 
 Kevin grabbed my whole leg and the warmth of his hands started to ease the pain of my leg from the charley horse and ankle. He pushed the toes on my left foot back slowly, the heat from his hand and the light pressure on my toes caused  the charley horse to ease up a bit.  I could breath again! I finally stopped screaming. I was so worn out after this experience I  asked to be wheeled into bed to lay down for a few moments.
Off to bed I went, so we elevated my leg once again with pillows. It really felt good to lay down.  The throbbing finally stopped all together. I decided I could not go to the ER now,  I was worn out from all the screaming. I'd have to wait till the morning, I really needed to sleep right now! 
 
 As I was falling asleep my son Jason yelled into me from his room, "Mom, I'm praying for you", and I smiled and yelled back to him, "Thank you!" I need it! Then I fell asleep.
 I woke up at 3:33am and I got up to go to the restroom. I was looking for the wheelchair and the crutches when I realized, my foot did not hurt at all!! It was completly fine! I walked in disbelief to the restroom by myself , no crutches, no wheel chair! I was  being careful not to wake anyone in the house. I was really amazed that I had no pain at all. I could feel that my ankle was still swollen but I could put all my weight on it! The foot was actually still very swollen, but I had NO PAIN!
 
I had posted this incident on Face book after it happened and so many people were praying for me. They had shared loving, kind thoughts and advise for me. I really appreciated it all. As I walked into the restroom  last night I realized the prayers of all the people had been heard! I was healed.
Jason's prayer had worked a miracle on me!
His words were the last words I heard as I fell off to sleep.
Miracles are still happening! We just have to believe. It took this silly accident to remind me of so many blessings I endure everyday. When we ask for prayer, we should expect a miracle.
I got mine last night!
I thank all those here for their part in their prayers for me.
I am blessed to have praying friends!

A Momentary Glance



So, for Christmas last year I received a gift of a new tablet and I had someone misplace the power cord for it. Not sure how that happened, but one day it was there and the next, well, it just wasn't. I finally got around to purchasing a new cord at the local Best Buy last week and I decided to plug the new power cord in and see what my little tablet could do.
 
I was sitting alone in my living room, reading all the little prompts and studying the tablet. my oldest son was sitting out front on the porch swing, I could see him through the front window.
I was just pushing all the little buttons on the Tablet following the sign in prompts.  I was trying to get the thing connected to the internet. It wasn't working out too well for me. I am a bit technically challenged until I find a path I am comfortable with.
So, I kept pushing buttons and gliding my fingers across the screen. I wanted to get my tablet registered and set up.
 
All of a sudden the camera function came on. I didn't push the camera icon! I could see I was on a totally different page.
I looked into the screen and saw a small grey extraterrestrial standing next to the couch and the table in my living room, he was just a few feet away from me! I starred intently into the tablet looking at him. I saw the coffee table and the bookshelf, the rug on the floor and the alien being, just standing there looking right at me!  I was shocked for a moment! The hair on my arms and the back of my neck stood up! Then I looked up from the tablet to the actual room where he was and he was gone! Just gone. I looked back at the tablet and it was on a different function all together! How did that happen?
O.K., I thought, how "did" that happen? I know I pushed a lot of buttons, but the camera function wasn't one of them. I was trying to register my tablet, not take a picture. I clearly saw an extraterrestrial standing there looking right at me as this function for the camera came on. It was freaky to say the least! A small grey alien. He was no higher than the back of the couch. It happened so fast it was like a flash yet it was a clear depiction that was in the tablet. I could clearly see my whole living room in the camera with a presence in the tablet!  I couldn't  figure out how to take the picture while looking into the camera as I was too amazed at what I was looking at and I didn't know how to take a picture on the tablet yet.!
 I honestly didn't even think to try to take a picture.
It so caught me by surprise!
Me of all people, how did I not think of that?
 
Why, I asked myself?  I asked this several times later. Extraterrestrials seem to show up when you're not expecting them. Then all of a sudden, they're just gone. It's strange, so elusive, 
 I know, but nevertheless that's exactly what happened.
 
I'm grateful once again I had the opportunity to get a glance at an alien being. Even though it was in a very strange manner. There was no time to ask a question or even smile! There was no time to interact, other than the shock it must have seen on my face. I know they don't play games with us, so I have to wonder what the message in that was? Was there a message? Did he just want me to know he was able to be here?  
Perhaps he just did want to let me know, they're still here with me?
I'll except that for now.
Tomorrow is another day, who knows what it will bring?
I tell myself this often, "Truth is stranger than fiction, and believe me, in my life, it really is"!

Miracles still happen!

 
So, as far as I can see there are good days and then there are bad days. They just happen. No rhyme or reason. You just wake up one day and everything starts to escalate. This last week has had one of those "days" that has come upon me. It started on Monday and it took Tuesday and Wednesday along for the ride,
 
But then there are the miracles that bring remembrance of who holds each day in HIS hands.
 
So, Monday ended up being a very trying day. I spent the most of the morning rejoicing about something I thought was lost to me forever which I had found while searching through old boxes.
It was a Monday morning of true elation!
 
Then the phone rang, and drama entered my life.
My youngest son called. That changed everything!
No transportation and a huge issue he was facing.
I prayed about  the presented dilemma, and weighed what I should or shouldn't do in regards to the situation  which was unfolding.
I love my son!
I made my choices and off I went. Into drama land. Someone else's poor choices had presented the people needing help. O.K. it's not the end of the world, and after all I can help. So off I go, 178 miles up north to help  this someone yet again. Through grueling traffic, did I mention the grueling traffic?
That would have been fine except for the fact that after I was about 58 miles up the road the phone rings again.
It was a friend informing me that my older son had been mauled badly by a pit bull. I now faced a conundrum of sorts. I was on my way up north to help one son and now I'm torn to go down South for the other one. What does a Mother do? I felt pulled in both directions.
My oldest son was hospitalized and treated but was in very bad shape. The wounds were extremely deep and the healing process would be slow and painful. Other issues began to present themselves as well. He was transferred to yet another hospital.
He would now lose his job and become homeless from lack of finances being taken care of. I began praying, looking to GOD for answers. I needed direction now!
I love this boy and he is in such trouble.
 
So after going 178 miles in one direction to the North and back again, I drove another 38 miles to the South to see how I could help the other son.
In the interim I am unable to find the other son as he has been released from the hospital and I don't know where he is. He doesn't have his phone on him. It was now getting late.
After getting someone to assist me in finding him I now have to head back home. Another 38 miles north. There are things I have to do at home and take care of. I won't see my hospitalized son today.
 
I head back home another 38 miles to go. GOD help me, I pray!
 
Tuesday's sun rises and the phone calls start again. the son in the North, 178 miles away in one direction has a situation that arises and is caustic and needs help again immediately!
Again I pray about this, and take off again to help him.
 (I'm sure now that this was a mistake.)
And then the call comes again unexpectedly the son in the South is back in the hospital with complications from his attack, so my day takes a repeat of the previous. I'll be heading back South after I go 178 miles North and back again! The joy's of motherhood!
 
I'm now begging GOD for help to get through this conundrum. What we Mothers do for our children often defies reason. And sometimes, even common sense.
But, men see what men do, GOD see's why!
I think HE shares these reasons with Mothers as a rule.
Can we ever be too kind to our children? Maybe.
 
So, I deliver one son 356 round trip miles later to his point of interest and I head out to see the other son.
 
In the interim I put my reading glasses in my glass case, which had a pair in it already and toss it in my purse. After driving half a day again I spend the day with my son who was just released from the hospital again and console him as he begins his healing process.
I reluctantly head home after a few hours making that dreaded 38 mile trip again.
But, chin up, here I go. Everything seems to be falling back in place. Peace is at the end of the tunnel now I think! Perhaps I can make some arrangements to help this child out and make his life a bit easier as he heals. Off I go again.
 
Wednesday rolls around and I find out from yet another source that I have to make the dreaded 38 mile run back down South for yet another reason. I put my glasses on to set my Garmin to assist me in a quicker way there, there isn't one, great! I throw my glasses back into the case and I'm off! I gather my thoughts and tell myself, I can do this! No problem. I can do all things in peace and love through HIM who strengthens me! So off I go into yet another dilemma. Someone else's drama again. But I console myself and say I will visit my son again and see how he is doing with his healing process.
My whole day is again a day of going here and going there. And the gas prices are $4.00 per gallon....Ugh!
 
And again finally it's getting late and my day is ready to wrap up in the South. I head back on the road to make my 38 mile trek back home again. GOD please help me! The driving in the bumper to bumper traffic is so stressful.
 
As usual the cars are bumper to bumper and the projected one hour ride turns into two grueling hours. No getting around it. Ugh.
 
Finally two hours later I'm home and exhausted from the activities of the past three days. I pull into the driveway, I tell myself I'm not driving anywhere for a month, check my mail and come into the house. I throw my purse on the floor and make myself something to eat. I need to read the directions on the package for the dinner I'm starting and I go to get my glasses. They are not in my purse.  I head back out to the car and search high and low, no glasses.
I go back into the house. Check my purse again. No glasses! I go back out to the car and check under every seat, It is now, at this moment, the stress of three days, miles and miles of driving and other peoples drama and issues hit me.
After all this I just start crying. I have lost my glasses. This was my breaking point. Not just one pair, but both pairs I owned, which I foolishly put in one large black case holder.
 
I could not take it. Somehow this put me over the edge. I sat and cried and cried for well over an hour. everything seemed so bleak . I felt as if I were spiraling down a slippery slope. And I was angry that after all I did to help others, in the interim I hurt myself. I lost my glasses. I can't read without them. I was so frustrated. The tears just kept coming. I just couldn't stop crying!
 
I went in to lay down in bed and try to remember where I had left or lost my glasses. I laid there crying and wracking my brain, how could this have happened. I was sick to my stomach. I prayed to the LORD, PLEASE help me, Please! I cried through the begging, Please HELP me remember, so I can locate them! I decided I couldn't keep crying all night, I went to get up and get a drink of water. As I passed the front window in the living room, I happened to glance outside toward the mailbox. I stopped in my tracks as I noticed something in the compartment under the mailbox. I wondered if it was that big black frog I shooed away from the front door last week. It was  so odd just sitting there. He was huge, and he was black. Was that him in the mailbox?  I headed out the front door toward the mailbox to get a closer look at him. How did he get up that high? It wasn't a frog at all, IT WAS MY GLASSES CASE! Sitting in the mailbox compartment! How did they get there?
How is that possible? I started crying again, but tears of joy. My neighbor was outside and was starring at me. I didn't care. I was so grateful, I was so happy, I ran back into the house crying joyfully!
After all this, all the worry, all the stress, all the drama, all the miles, all the gas money, bumper to bumper traffic,  my glasses showed up after being lost! Thank GOD they did! HOW? I don't have that answer!
GOD treats us better than we could ever expect. I am reminded that as much as I love my sons and would do anything for them, HE loves me more, and remembers me when I call upon HIM!
My week had started with the elation of finding something lost, and ended the exact same way.
Coincidence I ask myself?
Probably not!

The Intersection of Dimensions


So, the weather in Florida has been at unprecedented rain fall levels for the past three weeks. July and August of 2015 have set new records throughout the State. It was reported that the steady rainfall hasn't been this serious in over 70 years. With that being said, I have been watching the retaining wall disappear over the last three weeks and the Lake in our back yard rise higher and higher towards the house. 
Knowing that there are alligators living in the Lake has made me a bit uncomfortable, since there is no secure wall dividing the Lake from my back yard.  The deck I usually enjoy my morning coffee on disappeared over two weeks ago. It succumbed to the rising water. The table and swing on the deck are still slightly visible as the water has come up so high.
So, early this morning as I made my way to the back dining room window to check on the water levels of the lake I was surprised to see the gator on the grass in the back yard. It was so early the sun had just barely come up. The gator could hardly be seen between the shadows on the Lake from the early morning sunrise bouncing off the water.
But none the less, there he was.
Basking on the lawn which was at least four feet underwater.
I ran to get my camera as I saw him there just feet from the edge of the water.  I yelled for Kevin to come see the gator and to get a picture as well. We have been watching this gator grow up over the past few years as he has surfaced every now and then. He is still pretty small but he's twice the size of what he was just a year ago.
Kevin took his pictures through the back window, he was focusing his shot between the window and the early morning condensation that had covered the glass, but I crept outside to get a closer look and hopefully a close up picture. As I quietly opened the back sliding doors leading into the lanai, I whispered to Kevin as he stood at the window to be real quite so as not to disturb the gator.
I walked out towards the gator very slowly and clicked away several times. The flash was on on my camera and it lit up the back yard. The gator seemed to sit there and allow me to take his photo.
I was only out in the yard for a minute or two when the gator swung his tail abruptly on the water and made an immense splash and submerged from sight.
I screamed out loud, Wow! It took me by surprise as I watched this amazing creature swim away in a splash of  his intense power.
I was so excited! I got the picture!
As I turned to come back in the house from the darkness I saw Kevin in his dark blue robe walking away from the window and  into the living room. But, when I turned to look into the house through the other set of sliding glass doors I was shocked to see Kevin sitting on the couch watching T.V. and on his computer!
How was this possible? He's in two places at once!
It was frightening! Here I was so excited about the gator and now so instantly confused in the same moment as to what I was seeing.
How was this even possible? Dimensions were crossing here!
I was so excited about getting this amazing picture from the lake and NOW I was thrust into a paranormal moment. It was a feeling quite like none I have ever had before.
The perfect storm of emotional feelings, One very intense and high and the other confusing and frightening!
How was it possible to clearly see Kevin walking towards the living room through one set of sliding glass doors while he was already in the living room seated on the couch with his laptop on his lap and watching the T.V. which was clearly visible through the second set of sliding glass doors?
How does this happen?
I was speechless. I was in the moment of two very different emotional happenings. Two different worlds if you will.
I continued on into the house and approached the Kevin I saw sitting on the couch, I looked at him oddly to see if in fact it was him, I relayed what I was going through to him as he sat there, looking at me, and I asked him how this was possible?
He replied to me, "I have no idea". He didn't seem to believe me at that moment. That upset me deeply.
He suggested it was me possibly seeing my own shadow in the reflection of the glass, that I mistook for him, but it clearly was not a reflection of me I assured him, I clearly saw Kevin in his robe walking. Moving forward, I was standing still!
I saw Kevin walking away from the window in his dark blue robe  and I noticed his hair and his stride, it was clearly him!  Or a ghost of him? I was wearing a white robe, so if I would have seen my reflection it would have been stationary, because I wasn't moving, as I had just turned around, and it would have been a white reflection, or a lighter reflection on the glass door.
 
When I came into the house through the lanai sliding doors I beheld Kevin on the couch. I wondered for a moment, who is the real Kevin here? It made me tingle with an odd feeling. Where did his apparition go? It simply disappeared as I focused on the reflection of Kevin actually sitting on the couch!
I asked myself several times, how can this happen?
It's as if I was seeing him in some sort of altered time.
How is that possible?
It was like the perfect storm of paranormal and excitement meeting together and exploding into another dimension.
While I sit here writing this I am still overwhelmed by this incident.
I'm always grateful for how my life unfolds on a daily basis but I will say that with every new day I seem to experience something more bizarre than the day before.
This life we live is full of uncertainties and strange happenings.
Thank GOD I don't walk this journey alone!
So, please enjoy the picture I took this morning of the gator on the lake. It is the actual picture I took just before the paranormal intersected with my morning.
I thank GOD for HIS continued protection over me in this strange world we live in.
Never forget, Truth is stranger than Fiction!

Wall Banging

 
So, it was July 31st, 2015. Another rainy day in Florida.
I'm home alone and I have many things to accomplish today.
The rain had been 19 days in a row here thus far this month. Today for a few hours it wasn't raining. I took this opportunity to mow the very long grass that had grown in our yard.
I started in the back yard and then went towards the front of the house. When I got to the front of the house right near the front  bathroom area, a huge snake scampered across my path.
It was pretty big and very long. The sound of the mower obviously frightened him and he raced off towards the berm in the front yard almost directly under my feet! I couldn't tell if he was a water moccasin or a black snake he moved so quickly. I watched for him constantly as I finished mowing the rest of the yard, but I was glad I never saw him again.
I went into the house after mowing and jumped into the shower, it was so hot and humid I was just covered in sweat.
I needed that shower and immediately!

About an hour or so later,
I decide to go into the front bathroom to start on my hair. I wanted to flat iron my hair because it's been so damp here all month I was sick of my frizzy looking hair.
I plugged in the flat iron and stood in front of the mirror in my front bathroom now. Before I could even get the comb in my hair something frightening happened.
All of a sudden, three very loud banging's were heard throughout the entire house. It shook the bathroom wall. They came from the outside bathroom wall.
Right next to where I was standing!
The sounds clearly came from the front of the house, But how, they were so loud! It was so very loud I thought it sounds like someone was out front banging bricks on the wall.
That just didn't make any sense.
Who would do that in broad daylight I thought to my self, as my mind raced, and I tried to make sense of this.
I stood there for a moment just mystified.
The banging's lasted about three seconds in total.
It so startled me that after another second or so passed I ran to the front living room window immediately to look to see what that banging could possibly be? 
It was like someone had a bat hitting the wall! Seriously! I expected to see the wall broken.
There was no one there! No one running off. I thought maybe it was a prank of a neighbors child? Not that that had ever happened before. There was no one anywhere at all to be seen!
I saw the cat looking rather traumatized on the front window sill.
She was backed up into the corner of the window. She was staring in the direction of where the banging had come from. Exactly where I thought, the bathroom area!
She looked frozen and afraid.
I went back to the bathroom for a moment and the banging  happened a second time, This time I only heard it once. I ran as the banging was happening to the front window and again looked out. The cat was now gone from the window sill, and again,
I saw NO ONE there!
This is exactly where that snake was I thought to myself!
Could that be a coincidence? I don't believe in coincidences!
I went right into an open rebuke in JESUS name.
It was no light rebuke.
It was now clear to me what was actually happening.
I was angry this entity had come at me in such a bizarre way.
I walked outside and walked up to the outside brick wall.
No sign of anything hitting the perfectly white wall.
How was it possible for that entity to make so much noise on a brick wall? I did scratch my head. But then again I thought, they are capable of doing so much we just don't understand yet.
None the less, I wasn't going to waste another moment on this experience . Not another negative thought about it!

I went back into the house and proceeded to flat iron my hair.
As I stood there again I wondered why two days in a row I was experiencing odd odors and banging?
We live in a diverse dimensional realm here on the Earth.
Nothing surprises me anymore. I'm grateful that regardless of what happens in a day in my life I have a sure and powerful help in the LORD! There were no more noises after that!
Today I have come to understand that what I dealt with that day was a poltergeist spirit. It was taunting me.
Since I have become a Demonologist in the 1970's I have often had many spiritual attacks. I understand them now, but I never really enjoy going through them. I refuse to give into fear. I hope you will as well!

The Odor

So, I woke up yesterday, Wednesday, July 29th, just as I do everyday (Thank GOD!) and I headed out into the kitchen to start my coffee.
We had a little visitor stay with us over night and I wanted to get some breakfast ready for her.
It was then I noticed a strange smell in the house.
I stopped in my tracks and tried to identify it.
It was hard to describe really. It smelled like it was someone else's house I was standing in! It was as if while I slept last night this house reverted back to the previous owners house, or at least the smell of their house.
I know this sounds strange, but I have a very sensitive and keen sense of smell. Have you ever gone into your neighbors home who has a dog or cat and noticed that their house does not smell the same as yours, It's their unique smell?
How about going into a home where they use moth balls? You really do notice these things momentarily as you enter other peoples homes.
 
Well, here I stood in the middle of the living room with this look on my face like what the heck is this all about!
I stood there for a moment and realized that this was the smell of the house when I first entered it 3 years ago before much of the house was repaired and updated. I recognized it now!
Kind of musty and old. There were old drapes originally and miss matched furniture, old carpets and unpainted cabinets that were out of date. The walls needed painting and floors needed updating as well as bathrooms renewed, it was just old.
So as I stood there I realized that someone from the previous owners was with me in the room.
But why? I was all of a sudden very aware of their presence.
So I said out loud, "Oh no, in the name of JESUS you have to go, "now",
your time here is over, this is my time to live here"!
 
It was then I heard Kevin's mother say to me. "Thank you".
I thought to myself, What?  For what?
I felt her say again, "thank you for polishing my silver and loving my home, for caring so deeply for this space, my home.
I said out loud to her "you're very welcome and now you must leave"!
 
With that the smell was gone! Instantly, gone.
I now smelled the fresh clean home I had grown to love these past 3 years, the smell of fragrance candles and clean floors, my leather couches and other things we worked hard to acquire that all contributed to the familiar smells of this present home.
I continued on my way into the kitchen and made the French press coffee I love so much.
 
As the day went on I mentioned briefly to my little visitor while we were chatting, what had happened earlier today and what I experienced. I shared that I thought it was her grandmother who was here with me in the early morning hours while she slept. She smiled and said she remembered the smell when her grandmother lived here in the house. She said it was musty and old because of her grandmothers illness she was unable to keep the home clean and it made an impression on her also as a child.
 
With that we gathered our things and headed out of the house and off to a movie and enjoyed the rest of the day together.
 
Later that evening when Kevin came home from work his daughter mentioned to him what had happened here in the house to me earlier this morning.
He inquired of me as to what happened. I was standing in the kitchen cooking dinner when he asked me about the happening and I walked into the living room to answer his question.  I started telling him about how I woke up to a strange smell in the house  and then I heard his mother speak to me. That's as far as I got!
 
Just as I said that to him all the power in the kitchen and the living room shut off, EXCEPT the stove in the kitchen and the flat screen T.V. in the living room. This was odd because had a fuse blown the entire rooms power would go down! Not just a part of it. My chicken was still cooking in the kitchen on the stove and yet the entire kitchen was dark. The T.V. on the wall was still on but the rest of the room was dark. All the bedrooms and the rest of the house were fine!
All the lights were on.
His daughter jumped up off the couch and ran to her daddy's side.
I wasted no time and again I said out loud, "In JESUS name you must leave NOW"!
 
Kevin said, "do we have to send my mom out"? I said "absolutely"!
While it's wonderful to have these moments that connect us to the relationships we shared here, we must understand, it isn't healthy to allow these moments to last more than a second. This is not where the departed should reside any longer. And who is to say, they may allow other subjects to enter the home as well?
With that Kevin checked the breakers and all the lights came back on.
Other dimensional visitors do have some power and can turn electrical things on and off. Just don't allow them to stay. Some can be adamant about visiting and revisiting. We here are in control however, in JESUS name ONLY.
Give it over to JESUS, these situations belong to HIM and HE will be victorious where we cannot be. Spirits do not listen to us, but they have to listen to HIM!
It was a nice visit, I'm glad it's over!
And again "You're welcome Anna, It's my pleasure"!

Strange

 
It's just so strange what can happen in one day that makes it so different from the one before or after. I woke up on July 20th, 2015 just as I do every day. This day just like all the rest as I was headed into the bathroom to brush my teeth I saw what appeared to be a penny on the floor right in front of me. It was round and copper but strange. I thought it looked odd somehow. Almost like it was a bit to thin or maybe not the whole penny laying there. Like the shadow of a penny, but it was in fact a penny. I've seen enough of them to know what they look like. Just different is all I can say. I stared at it a second or two. So anyway, I bent down to pick it up as not to step on it with my bare feet. By the time my hand touched the floor to pick it up I couldn't see the penny anymore! It wasn't there!  It was gone! I kept feeling around, Behind my foot, next to the rug, then by my other foot! Where the heck is the thing I wondered? It was gone. Just gone! I figured, O.K. I'm half asleep, I must have overshot my bending over. So I stood straight up and looked behind me, I looked exactly where I first saw it, "there was no penny anywhere"? Was it a penny? What was that? Where is it I wondered? Why didn't I just kick it aside, I thought to myself, I'm still to sleepy for all this to be going on! It was round, it was copper, and it was gone!
 
I looked for that penny all over the hallway floor. I thought out loud. O.K., look, this isn't a large hallway, where are you? Where the heck did you go?
Once again I glanced all around and then I said out loud as well,
"I know what I saw, where did you go"?
 
I continued on into the bathroom pretty frustrated to finally brush my teeth, that darn penny was haunting me though!
 
So I shrugged my shoulders and said, Oh well, I'm not giving it a another thought!
 
I got dressed and decided to go to my favorite coffee shop to get a coffee. I figured I'd get a change of scenery.
I threw my purse on my shoulder and I hadn't moved an inch yet and all of a sudden my home alarm system started loudly beeping, I mean it was going off like a freight train!
That really startled me!
 
I didn't have my glasses on, so as I walked up to the base of the system on the wall, I couldn't read what it was saying, so I quickly rambled through my purse to get my glasses. As I stood there reading the base message, I was shocked to see what I read, it was the "Away" function beeping loudly.
In other words, I had like 10 more seconds to get out of the house before the extremely loud alarm would start screeching!
Oh my word, I thought, what is going on today?
How did this happen?
 Why did the alarm start to engage out of nowhere?
I quickly thought of the alarm code and entered it.
Whew! Just in the nick of time, I was able to stop the alarm from going off!
I stood in the middle of the room again.
First I saw the penny, that wasn't there, now the alarm set itself off. Really? Hmmmmm. What's going on here?
 
I'm obviously not alone here today.
I quickly took authority in the name of JESUS against whatever was causing the unbalancing of events and continued out to get my coffee.
I still have no idea what the penny or the alarm were trying to tell me.
 
You really never know when a change of balance will occur around you. But you can always be prepared and ready to set things straight again. It's a lot like an accident. You just don't plan for this kind of stuff, it just all of a sudden happens.
Never loose faith, always be prepared.
Most people would have been full of fear from seeing a disappearing penny and a loud shrieking alarm turning itself on. Don't let fear ever overtake you. Yes, strange things happen from one day to another but it's usually not something that will harm you. Something wanted my attention and I don't ever play into this kind of thing. I ignore strange happenings. Spirits like to "play". I don't play back, I rebuked the atmosphere in the home in JESUS name, and commanded anything ungodly out of the home.
We are truly never alone!
Strange things always seem to reach out after me. It's as if they try to test me, or taunt me. Knowing I won't tolerate them, I do wonder why these situations happen.
And truth is always stranger than fiction!
I went off to the coffee shop and continued on with my day.
Not everything is demonic, not everything is bad, but it's all weird to me. I always prepare for the worst and I'm set. Why show up at a gun fight with a rubber sword? That's my take on all of these happenings.
If it were someone trying to connect with me, seeing the penny, then they missed their mark.  I'm grateful none of these happenings have the power to hurt us. Shake us up for a moment, but never hurt us. We are never alone. I always have GOD with me!
Penny for your thoughts!
