Running ahead of the storm…

meandjessblogI’ve been trying to pray the Holy Spirit Chaplet¹ often lately. And I know I shouldn’t be surprised when God responds or answers prayers by now, but I always am. It’s really His responses that encourage me to continue seeking Him.

A Little Chalk Art

bradswallThe sun and moon just sort of came to me tonight in separate pieces as I was goofing off on my son’s chalkboard wall. (I did add the Blessed Mother on purpose. I intentionally add or alter lyrics of my son’s favorite songs to include our faith in some way.) When it was done,  I saw a picture of Revelation 12:1. The woman clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars.

Presidents, Betrayals, and Priorities

This past week or so the events and news surrounding the American presidential campaign has struck a chord with voters. Friends on Facebook have begun to “come out” with their personal stories of groping (usually high school boys or worse, rape, or betrayals of different types-divorce, lies and the like.) Many, unfortunately, possess these experiences. If a person lives long enough, they get hurt, and their belief in an ideal world is torn. I heard last night that 31 percent of voters in this election are single women. I can say this, my friends (mostly women in their 40s) are falling apart over this. Friendships are split; old hurts are emerging, etc.

Just one question…

My dark roast was empty, so I went to the counter to ask the employee if a new carafe was available. It was. After I had filled my cup to the brim, I noticed the gentleman who was making his tea. He was familiar to me, a man I met at morning Mass one day at church.

Not Just a Dream

I had a vivid and silent dream one night. Completely silent. It was an image only, peaceful. It was more than a dream; it was an experience. A very real experience that carried over into wakefulness. In the dream, I was sitting on the ground beside an albino wearing white looking ahead at a large white house. His hair was a white afro.  Continue reading

Is It Jesus or Just Another Homeless Man?

Just like every other morning, I stopped by McDonalds for a large coffee–fresh–with five creams. This morning, the coffee was perfectly prepared and, just like every other morning, I drove to work talking (praying really) to Jesus. I climbed out of my old maroon Jeep and walked through the parking garage and onto the street. Downtown is a mix of tall, sleek buildings, churches, an old library, and on this particular busy corner, a church and school–my employer.

Angels Are Listening

angelsSo, I went to a Level III Christian Healing Ministries prayer minister training session on Monday, August 8, at All Saints Healing Ministry in Winter Park, FL. Thanks to a wonderful friend, I’ve been viewing Levels I and II at home to catch up. The training is terrific, and it has had a remarkable effect on both myself and my family. But the training isn’t the purpose of my writing tonight.
