Oh, I've missed her so much!

About 18 months ago she took a bad fall and smashed her frame and shattered her glass! I tucked her away in a safe place because I had to be about my Father's business.

A couple weeks ago, with Aaron Brother coupon in hand, I took her in for restoration! The frame "discontinued" OH NO don't tell me that ... they had enough in stock! Whew!

Today she's back home where she belongs! My First Fruits of the Wheat Harvest Lady!
Exodus 34:22 Feast of Weeks 
Oh, welcome home! I've missed you!

I took my Listening Chair, Hugging Bible and a deep faith, love and passion for prayer. Embassy City Church welcomed me and the message with Amens and lots of love and a few laughs. People hungry to meet with God. What a blessing.

Isn’t this a beautiful prayer.
It speaks so much to the heart of Sabbath.

The Amidah (standing prayer) for Sabbaths "Our God and God of our Father, be pleased with our rest.
Sanctify us through Thy commandments,
And set our portion in Thy Torah.
Gratify us with Thy goodness,
Gladden us through Thy salvation,
And purify our hearts to serve Thee in truth.
Give us Thy holy Sabbath, Lord our God, with love and favor as our heritage. 
And may Israel, who sanctifies Thy Name, rest on it.
Blessed art Thou, Lord, who sanctified the Sabbath.

I love my Shabbat table prayerfully created and handcrafted by my Brother Casey.

He must increase ... Eclipse is not part of my everyday vocabulary. So I was a bit surprised when it showed up in a conversation journal with Jesus included in my not-yet-edited-printed book, Follow Me.

This book is based on an ongoing conversation with Jesus led by the red letter words. This excerpt is from a prolonged lingering waiting time at the WELL. John 4.

Daughter, 
Sit 
Sit still
Sit at the Well

There is more we need 
and I want to talk to you about. 
My desire is your increased knowing, 
confidence and 
conviction 
is birthed in 2 Chronicles 12:8 ("learn how much better it is to serve me than to serve earthly rulers.”) And long for the ease of serving me. 
o ease
o unforced rhythms of Grace
o rest is well doing
o equally yoked to you
o righteous burdens

It’s not so much about the location of the Well
nor about what’s in your hand
It’s about the  source of where  the focus of who  the reason of why
I am the where  the who  the why.

Our unexpectantly is  not an encounter
not an exchange
rather an eclipse *Eclipse one celestial body obscures another and causes an eclipse of an intervention. *exceed in importance, out weighs.

Mary,
This eclipse is the someone greater,  the living water. [John 4:10]

You heard me well just now. 
I whispered, β€œYou must decrease as I increase.” This season ahead will be marked by this 
encounter, 
exchange, and 
eclipse 
at the WELL.

Settle in on WHO you know.

I am the One you have been looking for. John 4:26

God has a plan.
I have a prayer.
God has a purpose.
I have a prayer.
God has a process.
I have a prayer! 
Speaking at Embassy City Church tomorrow. Think I'll take this journal!
She sits with me.
Next to my Listening Chair.
We Listen. Linger. Longer. 
Ready to record what it is He would say.
A whisper.
A scripture.
A recall.
A dream.
A desire.
A heartache.
A hunger.

He speaks.
I record.
I sit still longer.
The great exchange.
His presence.
My praise.

Oh, this ...
"Reflections on the intimate dialogue between man and God." Private prayer not corporate prayer.

Perfect reading as I prepare to speak at Embassy City Church this Sunday!

Blueberry Cobbler?
Honey Bee Biscuits?
Creamed Spinach and Crab dip?

Help me! Ideas? Suggestions?

I've been watching these two the past couple days. 
Conversations with God often begin with the things that surround you! 
I usually end up in my prayer chair asking the Lord what he wants to talk about. And then finding some scriptures that turn the conversation into a something He's teaching me or wanting me to pray. 
Prayer often starts with the very simple things surrounding you.

PS I miss my Donkey. I wrote about her in Adventures in Prayer! That was a 3 year conversation!
