Fay, I was opining how the Lord brings something into your life and in a short period of time it seems to be forgotten, of no importance anymore. I'm sure most of the Doves know what I mean, perhaps a dream, or a encounter with someone or something then it fades, no longer of much importance. I know I must sound like a broken record but between Eric's bible and Henry the Heron my life has changed. Like I've said many times before. I carry Eric's bible in my purse as tangible evidence of answered prayer. It's enabled me to speak openly about the times were living in, and Henry reminds me daily that time is very short. There again, what a the chances of me finding a heron of all things, for my garden .... it never entered my mind!
When Eric died I was teaching pre-school children. It was the start of a new school year and I could not face the possibility of not being able to "keep things together", so I quit. After three years I told the Lord that if He opened another door, as difficult as it might be, I would walk through it. That "door" came in the form of a phone call from my sister-in-law who has her own Christian pre-school. She ask me if I'd consider being her curriculum developer, I accepted and it's been a blessing I couldn't have imagined in a million years. Most of the staff is comprised of young college aged girls and most are living in the world, good girls but oh so lost! Keep in mind, my sister-in-law (their boss) is the one who found Eric's bible that night, so this adds much credibility to "my story". I guess the point I'm trying to make here is that when these things happen to us and we know without a shadow of a doubt that they have come directly from the Lord, let's not give into the enemy just because, as you said, they lose importance or sharpness. That's just what ole Satan wants us to do.
Our Lord has given you many insights into the coming days. Just because you haven't figured some of them out, don't get discouraged, it took four years for this scenario from the Lord to play out for me. HIS timing is always perfect!
I've rambled on enough, if only I had the gift of putting my thoughts on paper the way you do! Oh, your post on the elevator stopping on floor 5 and The Fallen Angels, was posted on Feb. 22, 2011 under "Myra re Heron" .
Until, dear friend, until,
