  • Another dream combined with more miracles

    This is the sequence to my previous article "Miracles and a dream".

    I had another dream a few nights ago. It was about Charles and I taking a day's trip on the train. We went all the way down south to see as much of the country as possible. Train cards are available at local stores that are less expensive in the summer and fall. Two people can then travel across the whole country cheaper than the price of a single fair from the train station in winter or spring.

    I also dreamed that we were going on a belated honeymoon. We went to the island where I once vowed I'd come back one day with my beloved husband. I have vacationed on that island since my youth and I miss it tremendously. Now I can walk somewhat better and will possibly be able to increase the distance in the future. The possibilities are endless.

    I know that I need to work hard on my walking, but Daddy has granted me more miracles this last week. One major thing that has changed, is that I can stand for very short periods, if I have some support. This gives me more freedom and it is also easier on Charles. I am now able to make my own tea or coffee and carry it while walking. Cooking and laundry are not possible. However, Charles would rather do those himself anyway. In my wheelchair, I am often able to help him preparing food in the kitchen. I can't stand for long periods of time yet. I have always had trouble with that, so I am already happy with what Daddy has given me so far.
    I still need help with showering, washing and dressing. That's why we live in an apartment that includes assisted living.

    I am not ready to walk outside yet. Not even with my walker because the uneven terrain makes me feel insecure. However I can see no reason why that wouldn't be possible in the future. Daddy is showering me with "little" miracles and I can never thank Him enough for that. I do know that since He's been giving me these dreams, our relationship has improved considerably. Not that our relationship was bad before, but now I am able to talk to Him more frequently and effectively. Consequently, now I wait patiently for His answers. Of course with my condition, things can take suddenly take a turn for the worse. However we stay optimistic and enjoy our life the way as it is now.

    The changes are endless; from something as simple to be able to fixing my own crackers,to something as difficult as being able to sit in at the table in a regular chair to eat. I am looking forward to more miracles and a better life for both of us! In the mean time we are doing a chronological study through the Bible in a year. It is more exciting for me this way, than to read from Genesis to Revelation. Been there, done that already. We are also going to read a Psalm at the table after supper. This will remind me of my youth. My parents as well as my grandparents would allow us kids to read from the big Bible. Afterwards they would read a devotional. I am very eager to reinstate that tradition with Charles.

    I am planning on taking a bath every Sunday (instead of my daily shower) which will strengthen my muscles. My next challenge will be to sit on the floor with cooked chicken breast to try to tame our wild cats a little more and change them into lap cats. They came to us with a lot of emotional baggage from the past. Since then, we have made some progress but we'd like to take it further. It would be nice to be able to pet them. I couldn't do that in the past, because there was no way I could get up from the floor afterwards. Now I can, so I will train them a little bit more.

    I'll keep you all posted about the changes this all brings into our simple life. It certainly took a turn for the better after the problems we had with Charles' heart bacteria. We both feel better and are ready to start over with a bright new future! Thanks Daddy! We love You!

      Wow.
      Your entire post is riveting, but this excerpt in particular has left me thunderstruck:

      Daddy is showering me with 'little' miracles and I can never thank Him enough for that.
      I do know that since He's been giving me these dreams, our relationship has improved considerably.
      Not that our relationship was bad before, but now I am able to talk to Him more frequently and effectively.
      Consequently, now I wait patiently for His answers.


      What a power-packed quartet of sentences!
      And here's what I find fascinating:
      The sovereign God didn't leave you to discover 'on your own' the imperative of waiting on His timing.
      He facilitated this crucial spiritual development by giving you these special dreams, which led to a deepening intimacy between the two of you.
      I immediately recalled to mind Eugene Peterson's commentary on the opening verses in Paul's letter to the Galatians:

      In the story of freedom, God is always the subject; humans, always the object. If we're to live free, it will be because of God's actions, not because of our own will or disposition or politics or intelligence. Three paradigmatic instances in Paul's opening lines show God to be the subject and humans to be the object: (1) Paul is made an apostle BY God; (2) Jesus is raised from the dead BY God; and (3) we are rescued from the present evil age BY God. Something is done to us or for us before we do anything. We are acted on before we act. Life isn't naturally produced by us; it's supernaturally provided for us.

      In spite of the gravity of your situation - or dare I say as a consequence of it? - your beguiling story strikes me as a Divine dance in which the Master is leading, and you are following.....
      And might I add, dear friend:
      Following most gracefully, considering your set of circumstances.
      <respectful bow>

  • Two spirits, one space
    by Senormac
    When I moved to this area of Oregon from Southern California, I was keenly aware of the different "spirits" that were here. People are friendly but also people are into a lot of weird occult, lifestyle, and earth energy practices. The tree huggers shop at the same organic grocery stores that the Buddists shop at and the Amazonian mystism followers ride their bicycles on the same path as cannabis growers. In the yearly city celebration parade a more eclectic group of folks you will not see, from...

  • A time to pray
    by Graham Hickey
    Is it a time to pray?

    Very often as I journey through the day I hear of groups that are setting up against the Christian faith, or I see other faiths doing things really well. This screams out at me. As a Christian church these things can be missing in our worship and life, and perhaps through highlighting other faiths. Is God is trying to compel us to act? Jesus prayed before he started his earthly ministry (before he was baptised), and before he was arrested to be crucified. ...

  • Freedom
    by brakelite
    Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:6,7) The principles and concepts that under-gird promises such as quoted above echo across the pages of the Holy Bible from the first book, Genesis, to the final pages of Revelation. They reveal a Creator God who, despite being despi...

  • What is Being "Christlike?"
    by Sojourner
    Someone recently asked if remaining silent about things like homosexuality and atheism is not more "Christlike" than speaking out against them--just love them, and be silent about what is displeasing to God. In that regard, we might ask if Jesus Himself--the very embodiment of God's love--was silent about the dangers of hell. Did His message not declare eternal judgment the final estate of those failing to repent and seek after the kingdom of God? Did He not warn His hearers that they would perish...

  • A Pearl of Wisdom
    by Sojourner
    As most people know, pearls, unlike most precious gems formed by geological forces, are the result of a biological process that occurs within various mollusks, including the oyster. Different species of mollusks produce pearls in a wide variety of shapes and colors, varying in beauty and value. A perfectly round pearl with just the right size, color, texture and iridescence is very rare, making such specimens highly prized and valuable. Whether pearls are produced naturally in the wild or met...
