waiting for snow

Waiting For Snow, Purification, and Justice

I am waiting for snow.

Of course I spend a lot of time waiting for snow in this frigid state of Minnesota. This is my third winter here. I am hearing from Spirit that it is our last. Our job is almost done in this land of winter.

Waiting for the First Snow

The weather forecast calls for a big snowstorm today, our first snow of winter 2014-2015. Even now I can see the first flakes, a thin layer on the ground. I am not looking forward to the snow blowing, blurring sight and traffic, blocking roads and sidewalks. The forecast is 6-12 inches, followed by days of frigid, below-freezing weather. That means winter has come, and we probably won’t see the grass again until spring. read more

trust god, sunlight streaming through trees

Trust God: He Cares for You

The Trees Trust God

The trees take in the rain,
the mist, the snow, the sun,
each season of its own.
Reaching to the heavens,
looking to the creator for provision.

The trees do not worry.
They do not gather, store, plan.
The trees just be.
Always looking to the sky,
and the great I Am.
The trees trust God.

Learn From Nature How to Trust God

When I look at the trees outside, I marvel at their ability to trust God. They are storehouses of wisdom, growing and existing longer than mortal human life. They spend hundreds of years on the earth. Yet, they don’t spend time in fret and worry, they don’t gather and store, they don’t trample on each other trying to gather the best thing for themselves, the best status. They just trust that the Creator will take care of them. read more

caskets and mattresses, money casket

Caskets and Mattresses: Price of Death

Caskets and Mattresses and the Price of Death

I am taking a class in death and dying. It is fascinating to learn all the different cultural and religious beliefs around this subject. We are studying funeral traditions, and I read that caskets come in varying price ranges. One of the price determinants is the quality of the mattress on which the deceased is laid to rest. Cheaper caskets get straw mattresses; expensive caskets get spring coil mattresses and luxurious fabrics. Caskets and mattresses show your wealth and social prestige even in death. read more

visit a cemetery, cemetery with surise colors and clouds

A Visit to a Cemetery

I went to visit a cemetery yesterday for a class project. It was mystical and beautiful experience. He is the story I wrote while I was there.

A Visit to a Cemetery

I walked slow on my way to visit a cemetery. This is always a surreal experience, even for those who move in dreams and visions and the prophetic, who think constantly about the afterlife.

As I entered the gates, the sun emerged from the clouds, dancing light beams on the grass, and painting rainbows on the tombstone. The iridescent colors reminded me of the spirit realm, a place of peace and joy, a place of my dreams. read more

angel art flower

Angel Art

Angel art is always created before Yahweh’s throne. Heaven is a place of imagination, love, beauty, and art.

Angels Dance

Angel art dances before Yahweh’s throne. Angels twirl and circle, their graceful bodies sweeping the air, kissing the branches of the trees. They land on butterfly toes and skate the surface of the glass sea. Walking on water is no miracle in that land. Dancing on water is the miracle and the joy. Joy shown in a smile that stretches from the dancers’ faces to their outstretched arms. Joy shone in the twinkling of their eyes and the sparkling of their white gowns. Their joy flickers in the earthly realm for humans with open hearts. Angels lead the mating dance of the crane, or the early morning sky-dance of the stars. Humans rarely notice this dance of joy, but the joy is mirrored on the face of the Father. read more

lowly dove

The Lowly Dove: The Power of the Holy Spirit

The lowly dove is a common bird. Not flashy, like a peacock, or talkative, like a parrot, the dove too often goes unnoticed. But the lowly dove is my favorite bird, and a prophetic sign on earth.

The Lowly Dove as Peace in the Bible

The dove is the universal prophetic symbol for peace. This makes sense, as we first see the dove in the Bible during the great flood. Noah sends out a dove to see if the land is dry, and the dove comes back with an olive branch. This is the first sign that the flood is receding, a sign that God has washed away all wickedness, making peace with humans. read more
