"You must be born again before you can see the kingdom."  John 3

AHA! God is present!

 

"When I was growing up my dad divorced my mother while I was in the fifth grade and later married a lady with three daughters.  I considered these children my sisters for the time their mother was married to my dad.  Their marriage ended about the time Wanda and I moved to California following college.  I did not have contact with the sisters following my Dad and their mother’s divorce. Selfishly, I did not think about them or follow their experiences as they grew to become adults. 

 

Shortly after their divorce, my dad married another lady who also had a son and daughter.  I knew this family growing up as well. I witnessed their father die while he was competing at the Denver Stock Show.  Since then, this new relationship was my father’s family and I maintain a close relationship with them.  I often ride with Jo at many of the horse shows we attend. I further consider her my sister and have enjoyed our relationship.

 

Our second grandson was born on May 5, 1997 bringing unimaginable joy to the parents and to Wanda and myself.  On May 6, our first grandson tragically died at our farm moments after my son and daughter joyfully arrived home from the hospital.  Unless you have been there in your own personal heartache, you can not imagine the sorrow that overcomes your spirit and drains all joy from your heart.

 

Within two days after the accident, Jackie Sue, who was about 10 years old the last time I saw her, called me.  She was horrified with dreams she was experiencing.  Two times she saw me in so much personal distress that she was compelled to reach out to me and find out what was happening.  Needless to say, that was an “AHA” moment.  My spirit and hers were and are obviously connected from our love for each other during our youth.  She said it was as astonishing to her as it became for me.  She said she could not let it go without reconnecting and trying to console me.

 

Although that happening was 19 years ago, we have not personally met again but we have become friends again and we visit consistently by phone."   

 

There is no earthly explanation as to how this experience happened, except that God is truly with us at all times.  Amen to that

 

Aha moments---Not new but poignant each time I see them.

"The part of the study of signs that stands out for me is the slide example and how you can block signs meant to direct or help you in your journey."    -Sue
"I've been pondering all week your statement of "Grace to be incomplete". One often thinks that being incomplete or not quite there or missing the mark is a bad thing. In God's economy it is pure love given by a truly loving God!"     - Peggy 

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy." acts 2

The Heart Zone

"What is my new awareness at this time? That the constant tapping on my shoulder will not stop; He loves me too much. Over the last 8 years I have been moving through the brokenness of divorce.  In that process I have run forward with perseverance, determination and striving...sometimes WITH God.  Self reliance was a tool of fear that I need to lay down now.  God has gifted me with many signs of HIs love and constant presence. It is what I do with these signs to let go of this daily habit of denying Him of all of my will.  I must BE STILL....and "just love" as He has told me."  - Dianne
