In With the New

I’ve gone from too many pieces that I didn’t know what to do to a great addition to my office space. I’ve said goodbye to a chair that served faithfully many years. The only problem was I forgot to take a memory photo before I sent it on its way. Oh well, I remember in my heart.

I welcome this new addition and expect it to serve me many years. A really comfortable place to write my blogs and more.

Flowers Growing Everywhere

I love flowers. All varieties. Indoors, outdoors. Everywhere.

I have a soft spot in my heart for Orchids. I’d buy one every time I’d go to the store but I have to contain myself, mainly because I don’t have room to place them around my home.

One sad issue had been in the past was I never could get them to bloom again. They would eventually die.  I love them so much that in spite of every one I’d buy, they’d die. Then in the last two years a miracle happened. My Orchids started thriving and have been blooming multiple times.

I’ve never had three Orchids bloom at the same time before. That is unless I bought them all at once and they were in full bloom. This is the third time one of them bloomed. These flowers have lasted a very long time and that is why I wanted to share their beauty.

You might want to say, “what about the little pot in the front. Well that Orchid never had any flowers. When I bought it, it was barren and half dead. My mercy took over and I brought it home with me. I guess Maybe a green thumb is in the mix. It’s still alive and for that I’m thankful. Just wanted to share.

Do you have any flowers adding joy to your house?

Crossing Over to Your Promised Land

In my quiet time I read Day 50 in the Book of Mysteries written by Jonathan Cahn. The title is The Exodus Factor and is about the Ivrim.

It means Hebrew-Those who cross over. The Hebrews crossed over the Red Sea and the River Jordan to get to the Promised Land. They crossed the Red Sea to get out of Egypt (old land). before they could cross the River Jordan (new Land).

In Genesis 12 God told Abram to leave everything he knew and go where He was going to show him. Abram might have been a little nervous about those instructions but he obeyed anyway.

As I read this the Lord showed me my journey begins in my head. I have to leave those fearful thoughts-renew my mind with faith filled thoughts before I can enter the promised land He has for me. My faith in Him and the process He is taking me through will in deed take me to where He wants me.

If you need to get to your promised land but you feel like you’re being delayed, remember you have to get out of the old land, physically, mentally or emotionally. You have to breakthrough and move to the new land. It can be done.

Beautiful Israel

ISRAEL NOVEMBER 2017

Today while going through my photo’s I came across some I took on my trip to Israel last November 2017.

This photo doesn’t do this any justice. This tree along with the whole garden was simply beautiful. Along with the beauty of the garden was great weather-no need for winter clothing. September weather in November.

I don’t know where were or the name of the garden. If you ever desired to make a trip to Israel, start saving your coins and set a date. You won’t be disappointed.

I pray for the continual peace of God that met me there and hung out with me the whole time I was there. God bless Israel.

Facing A Fear

This coming weekend I’m taking a CHL class. Before taking the class I needed to go to the range and practice the targets.

I should have completed the class a while ago but fear stood in the way because someone tried to take my life with the very thing I’m going to get a license for-a gun.

A friend was supposed to go with me to the range but for reasons unknown to me he didn’t show. After sitting in the parking lot for fifty-five minutes I had to leave for another appointment I couldn’t miss so I headed out.

Now comes the dilemma-when can I get back to the range to practice before the class this weekend. After my appointment was over I googled Eagles and found they were open until 9 pm. I prayed and enlisted God’s guidance and made my way back there again. I had been there before but never alone so I was nervous. I was met with friendly faces who were eager to help me get registered and a nice gentleman who attended to my needs on the inside.

The biggest thing that unnerved me was the sound of the guns firing. I’d jump every time I heard someone shoot but I stood against the fear I felt until it left. Every time I pulled the trigger I closed my eyes and I couldn’t tell if I hit the target or not. After becoming aware of what I was doing I had to make myself keep my eyes open. By that time I’d fired fifty rounds and it was time to go. While practicing I only jammed the gun twice. The nice man got me out of those jams.

All year things from my past have been popping up for me to deal with. So now was the time for my fear about my life almost being taken from me to be absolved. Today no more fear concerning that lives here. That journey was mine alone and no one else could help me.

I will attend the class, pass the test and get my license.
