Hello, John and Doves,Cheryl, two scripture passages pop into mind,the first one of which was laid on my heart this morning,when I heard the news of Nik's success.And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.'___________________________________Jew and Gentile Reconciled Through Christ
11Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— 12remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 13But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.You see, the Blood of Christ is an unbreakable covenant,kind of like a steel wire strung across a canyon._________________________________________________And that reminds me of a third scripture passage, one to which Paul may be alluding:I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.__________________________________________________________In your dream, the bird may stand in for The Word, thusly:"...so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."______________________________________________The Word:The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.~Blessings,Mike

"A Dream June 22"
Dear Doves:The morning of June 22 I got up, stayed up for a while, and then went back to bed and fell asleep. When I woke up and after a few minutes I started to remember the dream that I had just had. I have no idea what this means so if anybody has dream interpretation gift please let me know what you think about this.So the dream starts with me having something in my throat that I am vaguely aware of. I start coughing, I think I coughed 3 times when a bird flew out of my throat and into the room I was standing in. The bird was a light blue with black tipped wings. I opened the front door and the bird happily flew out and up into the air and did a summersault and then perched up upon the telephone line or electric line and then it changed and turned and became a man. The man started to grow bigger and bigger until about 6 or 7 feet tall. He was walking the tight rope (electric line) where the bird had been. The bird changed into a man!The next day I saw a photo of Nik walking the tight rope on the front screen of my computer, and thought how odd -- he is going to do a walk tomorrow across the Grand Canyon. I made a point to watch the walk the next day on Sunday. I missed the first half -- and watched the last part. The only thing that caught my eye other than the amazing feat of course, was that his wife and him were wearing blue and she had a dress on that was blue and with black spaghetti straps. Anyone have any idea what this would mean?BlessingsCheryl
