Yesterday had been a rough day on some fronts and as I was just falling off to sleep, I was awakened.
“Declare, declare, declare.”
My attention was being caught and my sleep was eradicated. A download of heaven was happening.
I grabbed my phone and began to research.

Middle English: from Latin declarare, from de- ‘thoroughly’ + clarare ‘make clear’ (from clarus ‘clear’).
I heard before I even grabbed my phone. “Add light. Clarify, make clear.” Not just clear, BUT thoroughly clear.
I have always believed that what you say is important. After last night I believe it more than ever. Is it possible declarations of the negative kind are making the atmosphere negative? That positive ones add light and life?
I know I will have more on this but I would be interested in how this might affect you.
