To Testify

This a repeat of an earlier post. I realize people are sometimes uncomfortable sharing supernatural or spiritual experiences they have had, but I only tell this because I want people to know how real God is and how much He does loves you.

I have sleep apnea. I don’t know if you know what that is, but that’s where when you lay down on your back to sleep the muscles that hold up your soft palette at the back of your throat relax so much that the palette itself collapses downward and blocks your airway. In other words, you stop breathing. It is dangerous and can kill you.

However, one night before I realized how dangerous sleep apnea can be, I went to sleep one night and somehow must have gotten off my side and into a position that was not safe. I woke up suddenly and was in a different place.

I remember feeling a slight tinge of fear but was mostly confused, thinking where am I?? All around me was nothing but deep blackness until suddenly I could see this spiral of beautiful, puffy white clouds spiraling off into the distance. I did not want to look at the far distant end of the spiral because I had this sudden knowledge that if I looked at it, there would be no going back. Somehow I just knew that. Don’t know how, but I just did, but I was not given a choice. I had to look at the end of the spiral, and so I did.

Next, let me say that I had no physical sensation at all. I was fully awake, fully conscious, but there were no physical sensations. I had no awareness of a body.

To get back to where I was, as soon as I looked at the end of the spiral of clouds, I was in the other place, but this one was different. This beautiful, beautiful light was everywhere. It glistened and shone like nothing I have ever seen. But the light was alive. There was a massive intelligence or presence inside the light. Like nothing I have ever experienced.

It was so bright it almost hurt to look at it and the colors of the rainbow were moving through it constantly. It was so bright that I turned to look away, but again, I was not given a choice. I had to look at the light so I did.

When I turned to look at it again, suddenly it felt like somebody had taken me and thrown me as hard as they could up against a brick wall. There was this really hard boom, and I was back inside my body. Totally awake but back inside of my body going “What just happened to me.”

I laid there for a few minutes, thinking about what I had just seen and experienced. I moved around a little trying to get my bearings back and then decided the only thing it could have been was for a few minutes or less, because it happened so quickly, so very quickly, is I think I died! It is the only explanation I can think of.

I believe for a very few brief seconds, I was allowed to see some of the glory of the Living God. The light was beautiful beyond words. I wish everyone could have seen it. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

The only reason I wanted to tell this is I hope it will reassure everyone that there really is life after death, and that God is more beautiful than any of my weak human words could ever express.

I pray that the living God Himself will bless your day and your whole life and that you can get to know Him better. He really does love you very, very much. God Bless You.

Too Archaic?

Too Archaic?

Evil
An old, archaic word
You say
But just listen
If you will but stay
Is not man also ancient
On the face of 
This revolving planet?

Also, since antiquity
Yet basically
Man is as the same
Since all the history of 
Our yesterdays
Thru & up to 
All the current of
Our present’s todays!

So,
Do not overrule that 
Ancient word
Evil 
Spun from the workings of 
A devil
satan seeks only to destroy
Every man, woman
Girl & even the youngest of 
All the boys

Work against it
Within yourself
Try to overcome it
Seek God’s light,
His Spirit’s pure power
To win for each of us
Of life these hours
That can come at us
In such a resounding,
Cascading crush!

Two Sides to Each Coin

Two Sides to Each Coin

Two sides to our God
Both beautiful to see
One and then the other
Each 
Yet completely necessary

Flip Him over
Both sides blindingly brilliant
& equally significant
Neither to neglect
In this way, we peruse
His totality to inspect

Yet today,
Many teachers 
Supposedly of The Way
Prefer over the other
Only one
Disregarding His Being
His Total Sum

Teaching,
Wanting the blessings
But leaving out obedience
Ignoring in His book
All written evidence
His is Master
& Our Judge

So,
Polish up both sides of 
That coin
Bring both sides to a 
Sparkle
And accept both sides
Of His intensely loving
Gospel

New Christmas Childrens Book!

Just in time for Christmas Shopping! My new Childrens holiday book, The Christmas Tree Angel is available on Amazon and Kobo, Apple Books and Barnes and Noble through books2read as an ebook. This is not a picture book but a storybook with illustrations.

A small angel brings to life the spirits of love and compassion on a cold, snowy Christmas Eve night!

On a cold wintry Christmas Eve, a decoration in the shape of an angel hangs on the most beautiful Christmas tree in town, the tree in the large city park. Even though the same snowy white as the other angels, she is made fun of for the too small, misshapen size of her wings, but only she has enough kindness in her heart to want to help two unhappy children who pass by her tree. Because of her wish to be able to help the children, she is given the power to fly by a special Christmas star.

She suffers through many dangers in order to help the two children and their mother have a merrier, brighter Christmas than they would have had without her kindness. For her courage, love and compassion, she is given a final reward as the sun rises over a new Christmas Day in the city!

Above is the below poem set to video and music. It’s also on my youtube channel at https://youtu.be/l3K1XIiPDXU Hope you enjoy. Have a blessed day and Praise God!

Winds

Winds of heaven blowing
Falling to bless
Rising back on praise
Turning eyes upward
We gaze
With hands upraised
In giving we receive

God needs nothing from 
Man
Unselfishly He sends
To all if they choose
His gracious, loving winds
Meant to teach, uplift
Souls to transform, win

For us this is His glory’s gift
And in those winds at times 
So powerful, so swift
received even thru stormy skies
Thunders the promise of
His Infinity’s Gracious Paradise!

I Love

I love Jesus of Nazareth
Why you ask
Because,
Orphaned as I was,
Alone only He 
Performed the task
Chose to love me
When no other’s love
Could I feel or see

So out loud I try to say
His Name
In the chaos of each, my days,
In the midst
Of all the scoffers
I only wished
I had said His Name
Even more often

Such a joy does it carry
I hope never to grow weary
The saying of this Beauty, 
His Name,
JESUS

Just to hear the sound
So by that speaking
May His grace
More & more abound
To each & all my sisters
& my brothers!
