Today I started reading a book that I read some years ago "Pursuing the Glory". I am only on the introduction but it is already proving to be a powerful right now message. Here is an excerpt from the Introduction: " There is soon to be a collision between the heavenly and earthly realm. The barrier that has separated the two realms is being destroyed."
24 The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

I am glad that I have a good sense of humor. Laughter has gotten me through some difficult times. Today I went by the water and I got out of the car and as I was walking under a tree my hat got caught in the branches...I had washed my hair and it was in plats...it was combed but not exactly in a flattering style...I laughed out loud and said thank God I had hair under my hat! We have a lot to be thankful for so today as I await the start of Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) at sundown I have a laugh in my soul and heart knowing that God is for me and it is not over!

I went to a local prayer garden today...it was wonderful. I began to wonder if there were more in the area and then God began to instruct me to begin my own. I loved my time with God today...one of the things I got was it is time to seek God's face because there are dark days to come but if you seek God's face he will be the light; night will be as day before you.

It's Rosh Hashanah; the Jewish "head of the year" or New Year. It was my goal to make it to the water before the sun went down. I did not make it to see the sunset and I was extremely aggrivated and then I came to a place of peace simply knowing that today is a New Beginning and I am by the water....not when I wanted but I am here just the same. God is faithful.

My older son called me yesterday and said he needed to talk. When I got there he started off by saying "I had a dream..." I cut him off and said " I know you didn't call me to come way over here to tell me something you could have told me over the phone...we laughed and he said"no this is different ". I told him to tell me and he began to tell me that he had dreamed I was building a house and people kept stealing material....he said it was like they didn't know what they were doing but their doing it still prevented the construction of the house. He said then these people who were very different and from their appearance looked like misfits came and told the people stealing the material that they had better stop, and then there started to be progress in the construction of the house and the house was eventually finished. That dream has been ony mind since he told me. It makes me think of how important it is to choose who you have around you carefully because just like in his dream even if the people around you unconsciously hinder your vision or goals it still slows the process of construction. What then is the solution? For me its a simple prayer of Lord bring those who will.
