2 Dreams

The first one I was looking up at a hospital and saw in a window hanging 12 Ilima leis. ilima leis represent royalty in Hawaii. A princess was born! The next window was blank but I head a mom say "Jeremy His name is Jeremy" I knew she meant the Jeremy that tormented me. Then I heard the Lord say "I have a plan for every one! It is their own wrong choices that change it"

The other part A man walked up to me wearing a green polo shirt and a mad face. He asked me "how do I get money away from Christians?!" I had just read this interesting passage of scripture in a book Haggai 2:8 The silver is mine and the gold is mine!' says the Lord

Finally I had a vision while I was reading my devotions. I felt my left hand very heavy and my right hand was as light as a feather. The left hand I saw my prayer beads and my sword of the Lord. My right hand had nothing. I heard the Lord say You have been very good in prayer and singing but not so good in recieving. You have recieved my daily provisions but you have not trusted to recieve miracles for you skin and others.
wow ok that was a good scolding

Graham Assembly of God

The little white clapboard church stood unassumingly in the shadow of the tall pine trees. You could drive right by and miss it. That little church held the most precious memories of the people who loved God and made me feel like family. Every summer my sister Julie and I would make the plane trip up to Washington state to spend time with our mom on a farm in Graham. The farm once belonged to my great grandmother. It was bought by the neighbor Larry Doeskin. In a strange twist of fate, my mom met Larry while he was on layover driving a rig in California. She was newly divorced working as a teller in a bank that he happened to stop at. They connected instantly and became married within a year. My mom moved into her childhood house, now owned by her new husband. So as kids we got to roam around the woods and cow pasture every day picking dandelions and playing with the kittens. On Sunday it was Church time! Mom got all pretty in the tiny pink bathroom. I remember lots of Aqua Net and big hair. Us girls piled into the Chevy and made our entrance as the Snow girls from California; our last name was Snow.
Once we got to the little church in the woods time stood still. The white church looked like it wouldn't hold more than a few people. There was the crackle of tires coming to a stop on a dirt gravel parking area. We entered holding hands my sister and I. Mom introduced us as her girls Julie age 8 Andrea age 10. Everyone was smiling!  And everyone had big hair! In inhaled the aroma of coffee brewing in a large urn in the kitchen while saying hi politely to all who extended their welcome. More often we got big hugs and that is what I loved the most. The first person I remember was Sally Fields. She towered over me with the hugest smile and brightest laugh I had ever seen on a person. I asked her if she would like to see me tap dance. As I showed off my tapping skills in my new patent leather shoes her grin got bigger and bigger. She was genuinely interested in me! That was a shock because we were brought up to be quiet around adults. Sally Fields really wanted to get to know me. That was nice.
The organ started up and a hush filled the entry as people stilled conversations and filed into the seats in the sanctuary that were actually old movie seats complete with worn red velvet cushions. The sanctuary smelled like lemon oil and ladies perfume. Candice Carolson the pastor's wife pumped out What a Friend We Have In Jesus which progressed into a lively This Is The Day That The Lord Hath Made. Infact that became what I call The Graham Assembly March. We sang This Is The Day as the first song every Sunday for 15 years! Everyone was clapping and having a great time. This was very different from the church I went to with my grandma in Los Angeles with its stained glass and silent pews and large hymnals and a lofty choir. No this was real! This was meeting God!. Then the organ would die down and Steve Couch picked up on the piano with a softer sweeter melody of quiet worship. Songs like Emmanuel, Our God Reigns. and Jesus Is The Sweetest Name I Know  lifted the congregation to His throne. The pastor or assistant pastor Dave Rassmusen would take over in booming bass All Hail King Jesus All Hail Emanuel!. Then to my surprise there would be a "word of knowledge " Random people chosen by God would stand up and deliver a word of encouragement or chastisement to the church. As a kid I didn't know what to make of this even after my mom explained it to me it still remained a great God mystery. Over all this was a freedom and a breath of fresh air that I had not felt while living in California. The sheer white curtains would move softly in the breezes of the open window that mirrored the Breath of the Holy Spirit when His presence filled the sanctuary. And Let The Temple Be Filled With His Glory and Let The Courts Be Filled With His Praise and Let Us Worship the Lord in the Holy of Holies Zion Rejoices Again. Another song comes to mind; In Moments Like These...I sing out a song I sing out a love song to Jesus....singing I love you Lord... Mom was a great singer and I loved listening to her harmonizing with the music. Sometimes the songs would touch her and make her weep. Mascara would run down her cheeks as she cried happy tears. We all waited on the Holy Spirit to do His work. Waiting on Jesus. It was so peaceful.
Next came the collection plate and then the pastor would stand up to preach. A good sermon always had a lot "and the LORD sayeth!" I liked doodling on the bulletins while my mom listened along with her Bible on her lap highlighting all the good scriptures. Once in while she would slip us some gum if we got restless.
The family of God: I'm so glad to be a part of the family of God. I've been washed in the fountain cleansed by His Blood. Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel along. I'm a part of the family; the family of God. During meet and greet everyone shook hands or hugged with a good "God Bless you" I tugged on mom's arm "who is that?" Mom said "that is Sister Booth"  I had heard of sisters in the Catholic religion but I had never heard of one in the Christian churches. Mom went on to explain that "That is how we address our elders here. Sister Booth is one of the oldest members of our church. She walks 5 miles to get here every Sunday. She has her own farm and milks her own cows. " Sister Booth smelled of moth balls on her old woolen coat and tennis shoes. Wow I thought She wears sneakers to church. Of course that makes sense if she walks to church. Some people offered her rides but most of the time she declined with a wave of her tiny hand. Greeting Sister Booth was like greeting a saint in heaven. Her eyes glistened and her countinence radiated the peace of God. If we asked how she was doing she just replied "I'm fine and Jesus just gets sweeter and sweeter" That was an odd answer to me. How does the person Jesus get sweeter? Can we taste Jesus? Food for thought in my 10 year old mind. But I did make it a point to say hello to her on the Sundays she was there. On the Sundays she was not there. the pastor would lift up a verbal prayer "For our Dear Sister Booth"
   Sing-Spiration! One Sunday every summer was dedicated to sing-spiration. The whole Sunday night was to give praise to God through our talents. The pastor led us with his trumpet. Many trios and duets belted out old gospel hymns. When the roll is called up yonder. The sweet by and by, and Oh Happy Days. The pastor's wife always took this opportunity to pound out her special rendition of If It Wasn't For The Lighthouse Where Would This Old Ship Be.  But by far the best kept secret was Martha Couch. She was a humble lady who prefered to stay in the background She loved to keep the church clean from top to bottom and usually sat in the back. She always had a praise report for my mom "Oh and you know what the Lord did for me today Gloria?!" I got privaledged to many of these praise reports since my mom liked to hang around until the doors were closed. Anyway on these special Sunday nights, there was a hush as Martha quietly unpacked her violin... Soft strains of Amazing Grace filled the room until there was no dry eye. The finale was Martha's violin vibrating The Old Rugged Cross...where at last my burdens lay down. I will cling to the old rugged cross and exchange it someday for a crown. Some times we would be called to kneel and pray after this song Sometimes there would be Communion..And sometimes we would just leave in a reverent hush back to our cars...
   Fast forward 5 years. My sister and I still enjoy the blessing of being with our mom during the summer in Washington and at Graham Assembly of God. There is a new pastor in town. He is short with white blond hair and fast mind. He is quickly nicknamed The Fireball!. Pastor John Waring. There is a new wave of the Spirit with the heart of the Lord for young people. And Julie and I just happened to be young and ride that wave!. My years in school were hard on me; but again Graham Church provided a refuge from the storms of emotional hurts. My church family embraced us. We got the royal welcome as the Snow Girls which lasted about 3 weeks of extra hugs and special visits to catch up on the years. And...there were some new faces in the dog some nice looking young folks to mingle with!. The Vanderhoff clan had 2 boys that became our best friends and my first crush. The Ford family had handsome young buck along with someone else who was disabled. The pastor jumped in; reaching out where ever he could. He turned the church around literally. What used to be the entrance was blocked off. An alter was built with 3 steps and light blue carpet with a kneeling rail. The best thing was that he installed a wooden ramp for our friend Chris to roll right on into church. This pastor cared and had big dreams. Plans were quickly drawn up to build a new church just down the road facing beautiful Mr Rainier. He was excited, the kids were excited and we were moving and grooving in the Holy Ghost! It was still This Is The Day That The Lord Has Made and we  still Entered His Gates With Thanksgiving in Our Hearts and Into His Courts With Praise, but there was a lot more zeal and zest to our entry!. During worship the praise and the room got hotter!. Literally the sanctuary got HOT with the presence of the Lord! All the men would be perspiring and wiping their brow with their hands lifted high to God. These same gentlemen had to be catchers for ladies going down on the floor under the power of the Holy Spirit. Mom was always one of the first to go down. I never went forward because I had a secret fear of falling even though I knew I was safe in Jesus and these kind men, I just couldn't take the step forward. So I watched and prayed with my hands and eyes open. We praised God with wonderful new songs such as Pastor Jack Hayford's Majesty and As The Deer Panteth For The Water So My Soul Longeth After Thee, ending with unending rounds of I Exalt Thee. It was as if God took His cue from that song. His presence filled the room and people began speaking in tongues and falling under His awesome power. I still did not understand all the gifts and working of things like speaking in tongues but it was a lot more peaceful and powerful than before. Every summer the youth got to go to Camp Cedar Springs for Christian renewal. When they came back they were on fire. They sat in the front row and the pastor had long prayer sessions just for us. I got to go to camp one year. It was good. But church was better.
   The next summer the whole church had moved into the new church building. It was great but incomplete. We met in the rec room with plans for the main sanctuary hanging on the walls. I often wondered why our pastor did not start with the main sanctuary as I believed that was where we met God. Of course God can meet us anywhere. And meet us he did.. I never saw the new sanctuary. There was never enough funds to build it. I often walked out in the field where it would have been according to the drawings. I would shed a tear because the cathedral style windows were to face Mt Rainier where we could see it's majesty and God's majesty at the same time. I would walk in circles singing praise songs over and over in that vacant spot.
   Over the next 3 years we continued to meet in the new church building. I was 19 when I finally had my first personal encounter with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Pastor John had left and a new pastor was installed. Pastor Stump took over with a little more "old school" preaching. His favorite passages were about heaven. Which happened to be my favorite scriptures too. We sang songs like When the Roll is Called Up Yonder again and The sweet By and By Pastor Stump often mentioned Bullah land. During this time a special minister from Africa was conducting meetings in various houses and churches in the area. I got touched by the Lord when he was ministering to someone who was filled with demonic influences. The ladies pushed me back to the back of the church and said "PRAY" I reached out in faith while we sang There is Power in the Blood and Oh the Blood of Jesus. I began praying in a different language. Then I started laughing until I was full of the Joy of the Lord! The person got delivered, saved, and baptized that night and gave a wonderful testimony to Jesus saving grace. I got baptized in the Holy Ghost! Back church I was almost uncontainable in my zeal for God every mention of His name made me want to laugh and hug everyone. This was my church my God my Jesus and my family in God.
  Pastor Stump has since gone on to meet Jesus in heaven.
 Jesus launched me into service and sent me to Hawaii to take care of my grandmother. I went to many other churches in my lifetime. I have a church family back here in California now. But I will always have my heart in the little church in Graham Washington. amen

Follow Me: Jesus

I saw his bloody footprints in the I fell on my face in tears. He turned and said Follow Me.
I saw myself in a plaid shirt kneeling in front of some lady with my hands under her chin. Jesus said "you will catch many tears"
Jesus I want to follow Your Heart and Your Crown..even Your Crown of Thorns.

Owl Spirit

The owl in my vision looked just like this one I just did a search for Owl Grey Beak and this is the one that she looked like! (note: I showed this picture to a friend who loves owls and studies them This is a Snowy Owl. The females and juveniles are mostly white the males have the stripes. So the one I saw was all white concluding that this was a female in my vision)
 I just wanted to share an owl experience I had with you. I have been seeing a lot about owls on the internet and talking with my sister. I believe this made me open to help one out. A white owl showed up in my inner vision while I was taking a bath today. She came up close and showed me her broken beak. She said "hello Andrea Spirit some one said I could trust you" I saw a picture of a red panda. Then she asked "do you think one of your kind could fix this. ?" I felt it hanging off my face like a hang nail. "she said It is hard for me to eat sometimes." I asked a dumb question Are you male or female she said " I don't know... I had babies...and she looked down at her feet where there were eggs and chicks. Ok back to your beak. So there are some good people and some not so good people. The bad people want to cut down your trees. The good people are looking up and are watching for your kind. Look for the people who are looking up! They may even have binoculars things up to their eyes to see better. I showed her a picture of a person looking though binoculars. Look for those people. I also said you have to be very humble and trust much. But I think our persons can fix your beak. Then she flew off
I was meditating on the honor of being called "Andrea Spirit" and how Owl girl knew I was available through Red Panda Ka-Lee. It was almost like backwards of what we have been taught that animals can be our spirit guide. Here Owl girl was asking me for advice not the other way around.  Then another revelation hit me. It is not so much one spirit higher than the other; although some have learned to listen and have practiced communicating longer. It is more of Helping Each Other! I saw a vision. There were all kinds of birds and critters in my backyard. They were all holding hands, feet and beaks and tails forming a circle in my yard. They were all looking up at God. They were helping each other get to God. So that is what this communicating is all about to help other get to the Safety and Loving Kindness of God .

The Dream of The Virgin and The King

October 3rd had a weird dream that I was in a mean kings palace and the king was my dad. He was gluttonous and evil . I wanted to escape because he was going to marry me. So then a white unicorn showed up We flew down palace and I was holding his horn. It took so much energy for the unicorn to fly that he collapsed when we came outside on the lawn. He died. I grabbed his horn off his head and stabbed my king father with it! Then I woke up

October 10
I find the meaning behind the unicorn!
Dreaming of A Unicorn Meaning 

Short explanation
A mythical beast traditionally represented as having the legs of a buck, the body of a horse, the tail of a lion with a single spiral horn on its head; a symbol of virginity.

Complete definition
The unicorn is a legendary animal from European folklore that resembles a white horse with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead, and sometimes a goat’s beard and cloven hooves. First mentioned by the ancient Greeks, it became the most important imaginary animal of the Middle Ages and Renaissance when it was commonly described as an extremely wild woodland creature, a symbol of purity and grace, which could only be captured by a virgin. In the encyclopedias its horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water potable and to heal sickness. Until the 19th century, belief in unicorns was widespread among historians, alchemists, writers, poets, naturalists, physicians, and theologians.

Anointed Objects

So I have been reading books on the anointing for 2 months now and feel it is time to super charge my prayer life. I thought about a wonderful moment that I had with Fr Andrew / Mr Stone in Hawaii. We were walking back to the bus after having a quiet time of prayer at The Sacred Heart Convent in Kalihi. Fr Andrew said wow I wish I could keep this up in my daily life. I told him how my rosary helps me keep from being distracted. I had in my pocket a 10 bead wooden rosary that I used to keep on track praying for friends and family on each one. He thought about it and said ya I will get one! I offered him mine. "Here Fr Andrew Just take mine" Something special happened when I passed it to him. It got real heavy! It was like handing him golden beads instead of a wooden beads. His hand even dropped 4 inches. He said "wow that is heavy with prayer" I just smiled. That was 1998.
Flash forward to now, 20013. I said to myself." I gotta find and use my pink rosary bracelet!" I got in the shower. Then I heard the Lord say..."Don't you get it....You ARE that object! Spending time in prayer with Jesus will give YOU that anointing!"
Oh wow that was good After 3 books on carrying the I get it :D

Heavenly Imaginations

1Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. Colossians 3:2

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillippians 4:8

5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,  2 Corinthians 10:5

19Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner. 20"For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father will show Him greater works than these, so that you will marvel.…John 5:19

Even the Stones Will Cry Out

So I was thinking about how I got all renewed in the Lord these past 2 months. I got the answer. I have been complaining about being surrounded by bedrock ever since we moved in. The house is very nice The scenery not so nice. One day I said Lord It says in your word that the rocks and stones will cry out if the people do not praise You. I'm sorry for calling them ugly. I want to be here when the rocks and stones start praising You! Bam! I was slingshot into the Lord's peace and passion. I have been getting free books to read on my Kindle every month! I am reading one chapter a day and loving all the confirmations God is giving me! God love's an "I'm sorry Lord"

Books I have been reading
Angels in the Realms of Heaven: The Reality of Angelic Ministry Today (Dancing with Angels) Kevin Basconi

Divine Mercy and Anima Christi and Communion with Family

I had a dream I was at a family dinner during Christmas. We were sitting around the Christmas tree. I was explain how that like this tree gives shelter to the birds Christ Shelters us. Then we passed around the Communion Bread  and Cup. My sister Julie was praying for me. I shared the cup with my niece Rosie. Then I woke up.
 I woke up saying the Anima Christi!
Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Separated from Thee let me never be ("Permit me not to be separated from Thee")
From the malicious enemy defend me ("From the malignant enemy defend me")
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints ("That with thy Saints I may praise Thee")
Forever and ever

Jesus showed me that just as the tree shelters the birds, the Cross that Jesus died on shelters us from Sin.

Autumn Blessing

I made a crochet pumpkin for my sister and was thinking about what kind of card to send with it. I have the scripture Give thanks to the Lord and forget not all His benefits Psalms 103
I imagined a nice yellow and orange flower on the front of the card and made a mental note to look through my stickers to find some flowers in those colors.
Today God sent me a package in the mail containing 4 note cards! And one of the cards has some lovely yellow and red flowers on the front!

Going With God

Right now I am reading a wonderful book called
Angels in the Realms of Heaven: The Reality of Angelic Ministry Today (Dancing with Angels)
Basconi, Kevin
It is so inspiring to read about someone elses travels to heaven! They mirror mine in so many ways. I am very grateful for the times the Lord encouraged my heart by letting me see glimpses of heaven. And now I am reading another persons memoirs of similar experiences.
Today I made it to church. I haven't been since April. How refreshing it was just to bathe in His presence and glorify His name in song with other Believers. They sang the Revelation Song too!
We all took Communion together as well
While I was getting ready I saw my grandma getting ready like when I was 10 years old. She put on her favorite yellow dress and Wicked Wahine colone and orange lipstick. She was anxious to get going. She said I looked fine. We even sat down in church together! I saw her take my hand in hers. She said "it  is not my style of songs but I'm so glad you are here. You are Jesus to me" something she said to me many years ago....

September 10 2013

Just had to tell you that I had another Veteran's dream! This man seemed to be 75-80 years old. He sat next to me and showed me what he did in a movie style dream. He was a lock smith in the navy! He showed a picture of him opening locks on a brig. Then I saw him making eyes at a lady that was dressed in a 60s pattern dress. He said he liked them to be intelligent. He last showed me a trick he played on an admiral There was a leather briefcase locked on a dingy, While the admiral was chatting with an officer this man unlocked the briefcase and hopped back on deck. he said Hoo that was good fun! They hired me just to open locks that's all It was great to get paid to open locks! Give me a piece of metal and I can open any lock! Oh and you are an intelligent lady. (then I woke up)

Toby Gets His Bacon and Shares The Love

Toby LOVES bacon!
I asked hubby to go get us a 6$ burger from Carls Jr I wanted the other one because it has bacon for Toby but we had a coupon for this one. Guess what..there was a 1 inch piece of bacon hanging onto my burger! Just for Toby. God was thinking of Toby too 

Toby came in while I was sitting in the bathroom snuffling for anything on the floor. I reached down to scratch his chest and he stayed there. Normally I reach to pet him without offering food and he shakes his head and walks away. Well he did walk out the door but ...he came back and blinked up at me! I reached down and scratched his chest with one hand and smoothed his back with the other. This is the first time since I have had Toby that he has asked for pets

Sheena Cat Visits Me

I had to share this encounter with you that I had this morning :)
"Andrea Mur" I heard over my left shoulder as I was taking a shower. At first I thought it was Leesha my cat from WA but she is a little more giddy and childlike. "Andrea Mur" I heard again! Then I remembered Julie named Sheena that Sheena Mur because she always had a purr at the end of her sentences! "Oh Sheena Hi " I said
"You were thinking about my mom so I had to see why"
Yes indeed I have been thinking about you a lot because I am making something for your birthday And it has much Aloha in it.
I told Sheena that she could go see it on the sofa.
She asked "where's the other one?"
I thought...other one....she sent me a feeling of warmth almost like me only with a different perfume. "Oh Julie!" I said. "Oh she is not here. She is in a different house You can go visit her She has a family of her own and dog. But she might not recognize you because she is very busy and doesn't take time to see in the spirit like I do. "
Then Sheena showed me her new paws. They were white tipped like before but they had silver claws that were not too sharp like here on earth. They weren't meant to hurt or kill now They are just pretty. Then she said "I'm sorry if I hurt you. I know you had different sensitive skin but you were so much the same as the other one that I sometime forgot. "
I felt the warmth of Julie again We were like twins back then with the same feelings and spirit. So neat that Sheena felt that.
Then Sheena said "Oh you have a dog! My dog has floppy ears. And he is sometime backwards but I love him and he is here with me. Your dog has pointy ears like me! And he has a tail like me! And he is black with a little white like me! Oh your dog is smart too! I like your dog.
I told her that Toby can see in the spirit and he would love to have you as a friend. She said ok. and again " I like your dog" I told her that Judy your mom loves Toby too. She seemed to like that. The she just watched me get ready and slowly faded. But I think she is interested in being Toby's friend. And she really felt the strong Alohas that I had while making your gift :D
Love you Lots AK and Sheena Mur

Looking for me?

Tonight as I lay in the tub I was remembering the one time my baby parakeet Rocky came looking for me when I was bathing. I was in the tub and here comes his little yellow face around the door. It was so cute. So here I am wishing that Toby would want to do the same that he would come visit me while I was bathing. I had accidently left the door open a crack and it was giving me a chill. So I sat up to close it. Then I saw it. Toby had sneaked in to look in my trash and I saw his little flag of a tail waving as he made a silent exit. I was so happy that he had come in that I didn't even mind that his motive was to scrounge in the trash. He came in one more time. I sat up and made eye contact with him in a silent thanks.

And then there were two..

I was grumping to myself just a little bit about how my dog Toby prefers my husband to me...not like my cat Mrs Gato. We hung out together. Then it hit me. Mrs Gato was with only me at the last years of her life. For the first years she was with my boyfriend Scott. When I would come to visit Mrs Gato would get jealous and climb up in his lap, turn on her belly and make goo goo eyes at him. She would lick his wrists and chin and demand to have his full attention even when I was trying to give Scott a hug. Then 10 years later I adopted her. It was just me and Mrs Gato. We read together and played together. So now with Toby it isn't just me. It is me plus one! And then there were two. Toby is dividing his attention between the two of us. I understand now.

Stength of an Eagle

I was lying in bed remembering the verse 'They shall mount up with wings as eagles, They shall run and not be weary They shall walk and not faint' Isaiah 40:31
Then I wondered what it would be like to BE an eagle. Immediately I felt a gust of wind carry me up to a craggy mountainside where I clung on with my talons. They were so strong like iron and flesh twisted together. Surprisingly the wings felt light and wispy. Everyone talks about the wings but it is the feet that have the real strength! I want to meditate on this experience again. I slipped out of his body and thanked him for the minute chance to feel something new. I felt so weak and small as a human again...

Saturday, March 9, 2013

So I've had this spirit cat visiting me on my pillow at night for the past 2 weeks. His name was Cooper. I say was because he hasn't visited this week at all. Cooper would wrap his body around my head and purr until I went to sleep. I was having trouble getting Toby and me to settle last month and then Cooper started coming. I fell asleep fast. I asked if I was supposed to get a cat instead of a dog. He said no. He was just coming for a snuggle. I sent out thoughts when he stopped visiting. The thoughts that came back were. "Enjoy what you have right now". I do enjoy my little family of Joe, Toby, my birds Captain and Cloud and my fish Blizzard. Toby and Joe went out for a late night potty break. I got up and stood at the back door waiting for them. Tears came to my eyes as I was watching my family walk around out on OUR patio under OUR tree TOGETHER. It was very heartwarming. I remembered all the days I was so alone in Hawaii wishing for a house with a tree and beautiful dining room. I have all that now. I am truely blessed

Wildlife Devistation in Russia (December 18, 2012

December 18 2012
I was sound asleep and woke up panting having a horrific dream of wildlife mostly gazelle and elk being caught in a fire! They were confused and asked me where to go. I saw a light to my right and pointed toward it. I said go there and find peace. They all turned as a herd. As they passed they said "thank you" I said "peace be to you" many times over. Then I woke up
I turned on the news that morning here is what I saw

A Crow's Call (rom February 2013)

I was reading the book A Feast For Crows when I thought out loud. I wonder if crows really can talk? 2 days later I heard "HIiii' It was long and drawn out like a large parrot would say it. The greeting came from a tree overhead in the neighbors yard. The next 2 weeks we had rain and I did not go out on the patio. When I did go out later that week I heard a resounding "You're Baaaaaack!" The crow recognised me and said hi and then you're back in English. Crows really do talk!

My friend on Facebook recommended this video from Wild Nature called A Murder of Crows. It details the study of facial recognition in crows and how they share information within their flock. I thoroughly enjoyed the video

Harold the Praying Mantis (from August 2012)

Meet Harold! This my new best friend Harold the Praying Mantis He has made his home on my patio rocking chair. 3 days ago I was coming in and removed my towel to find his little beady eyes smiling at me. I gently touched him to move him off the towel. He didn't bite :D Yesterday Hubby and I were having lunch when a tan head popped up at the dining table! Oh dear he must have come in on my towel the day before. He graciously accepted Hubby's hand to get a lift back outside. Once outside he recognised his chair and hopped back on it. I took this picture of him today. There are lots of moths and gnats for him to eat on our patio. Hi Harold I love you ♥
