Malachi 4:2
"But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall."

Several years ago I was working in a group home for mentally/physically handicapped adults and in the room of one of the clients was the above scripture on a was hanging with the names of people who gave it to her. I thought Lord you're going to bring healing into the client's life. I still believe this, but also realize God put those word on the wall for me as I realized the healing He is working through my life.

My friend Pam gave me a glass bird like the one I sketched for Christmas. When I took it out of the box one wing was broken, reminding me of God's healing wing.

I must read the Scriptures as I have never read them before.
Revelation 1
The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show His servants what must soon take place. He made it know by sending His angel to His servant John who testifies to everything he saw-that is the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ . Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take it to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.

I must look for God in all of my life and there is so much to write as I look forward.
The thoughts continue as John is writing Revelation, in that through his life and his personal experiences with Jesus, John has a lot to write. As God reveals Jesus Christ to John as he had never known (even when he walk with Him). John was reminded of the word of God, the testimony of Jesus and all that he had seen. As the Holy Spirit led, John was directed to write continual unchangingness, the same yesterday, today and always, and all victorious throughout.

Father of The Fatherless

Today I heard this comment-the best way to further evil is for the righteous to do nothing.

Psalm 68:5 says "God is a Father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwellings." Although my father died before I was 3 and every family member turned their back on my mother and my sister and myself God received me. Psalm 27:10 says I can call out to Him "You are my Father, my god, the Rock, My Saviour" and Psalm 89:26 says " God is the perfect father."

I am going through some of the journals I wrote from time to time over the years and following is one of my writings. I am a sometimes taxi driver, as is my husband Jim who drives cab full time.

One of the favourite titles I remember as a T.V. series was the NAKED CITY because of the quote when the show began , there are a million stories in the Naked City and this is just one of them."



God's got a million mysteries in this dark and empty city. Let's begin our search as a new one unfolds.

The city is a satellite that mergers to a major cosmopolitans giant to the south. The night is beginning uneventfully as those that preceded. Senior citizens returning from the walk-in clinics, students going to the mall, men winding to the bars, then home and so forth. Tips were fair as the shift began to grow until close to the end.

On the post catching some shut eye when the dispatcher calls "car for area 12!" I booked and got the order, went to the address. A man came out and said "you're not a big enough car." I had to leave and gave way to a Lincoln Town car. Oh well time to go home so I thought. "Car need for area 5!" Wow! that's me. "Car Five O go to #5 Wellduck Road and buzz 007!" Pulling up in front of the doors, an elderly lady steps out and waved. "I want tot go to Pilkering Rd." Where, "Pikering Rd." Looking in the MAPS book found everything else but Pilkering no Rd.
I radioed the dispatcher for directions which I proceeded to follow. All along the way the lady laughed a lot and I wondered. Suddenly she said " I've got a secret. " What is that I asked. " I'm not going to tell you!" She replied. " I'm 73 years old and I got baptized in the Holy Spirit 60 years ago, but I don't go to church any more because those people don't understand me." Approaching a coffee shop I offered to get her some coffee. She declined the coffee but asked for some milk. We pulled to the drive through and I bought her some milk. As we continued I asked if she knew any songs and we sang Jesus loves me, and This little light of mine I'm going to let it shine. I continued driving, driving and driving. I never did find Pilkering Rd.. I apologized to the woman. She said "Don't worry, all things work together for good, just take me home. "
I said "since I didn't get you where you wanted you don't owe me anything." She said "I have lots of money, here have this and thank you." She handed me a $100 bill. I felt bad, but she would be angry if i gave it back! What a night! /will I ever understand how God works. Thank you, good night and blessings,
