Current mood:awakeGranny is 91 and a good Christian woman. She has been a widower for a little over 30 years. Dark hair that still has only a hint of gray to this day. There was a time when she was in the hospital in ICU for intestinal problems. I walked into her room and was immediately overwhelmed by the presence of a dark force lingering in the room. I was sure she was at death’s door and this demon was waiting to take her down. But with the strength of God behind her and the love of family (not to mention modern medicine), she was able to prevail and contain onward
Through the minds eye
There is a place in my mind that I can see even now. It is one of great beauty. I was 19 and was station in the military in Germany . They sent my team as a support unit to the units training for reforger. They dropped 5 of us off in a small German town and put us up in a small hotel. Its December there’s 3
feet of snow everywhere. The locals are getting ready for Christmas. No one speaks English and I only know a few words of broken German. The quaint houses are the backdrop of and Christmas village. It was as if I had been dropped off on another planet. The peace and tranquility that we invaded was almost alien. But who was the alien, me or them.
Current mood:awakeI want to become one with the elements of this world. Earth Wind Fire Water
To make love in the ocean during a lighting storm is one way to get there.
I can remember as a child being one with part of the elements. There is a mile long dam in a state park that we use to camp at. I would run from one end of the dam to the other. I could feel myself being lifted by the wind and time would slow as I drifted over the water, on those hot summer nights. I could run ½ the length of the dam in the air. I remember the feeling even now. It was of your soul being free and soaring. It was incredible.
Current mood:awakeI am walking through a beautiful garden. There are trees with ivy and flowers hanging down from them. The breeze is cool and comfortable, for some reason only a few moments ago it was hot and humid under the hot GA sun, but I am no longer there. I am walking along a path in the garden, and I see them. Jesus, he is wearing a white robe with brown sandals that lace up past his ankles. He has dark hair that is shoulder length and he has a beard. I see my dad, the place on his head is still there and his hair is still gray, he has on blue jeans and a GA bulldog shirt and a NASCAR hat, just as I remember, but the cane is gone and he walks straight and proud once again. I know that he is no longer in pain. I can see them and almost tough them, its like watching someone through a looking glass, so close as to touch them but just beyond your reach. The alarm clock rings and they fade from my fingertips as I return to this world.
