Tonight I put my grandchildren to bed, taking the time as I do, to pray with them.
I know many who do not have that luxury. Do not have that chance or that opportunity. Can I tell you things are about to change? “Oh, Lee. I don’t know if I can stand the pain.” Do not harden your heart for it is the day of expectancy and earth shaking awakening. Continue reading Move That Darkness!→
Jim Morris told us in 1966 to “break on through to the other side”.
Many of us have desired breakthrough. Part of it is coming to an understanding of what we are leaving, moving through and headed towards. Over the years I have heard a lot of prophetic words on breakthrough. People get excited. (I do.) But at some point we must look at what it means. It is one thing for me to offer you a candy bar. “You shall have chocolate.” Another if chocolate is not high on your radar screen. It also brings more excitement and understanding to your world, if for instance someone says “you shall have a Payday” and that is your favorite candy bar in the whole wide world!

Yesterday it was a gathering of my family. My five children and the grandchildren. It was the culmination of a great weekend. Family.
Folks often try to put labels on family. What it means? Where it goes? What it stands for? I think we can initially define it as a group of people connected by common bloodlines. Or relatives. Those in relationship. But as is the case in my family, a blended family is not unusual. Where children might have non-biological parents. (Or conversely, parents who have children “they were not directly involved with” biologically”.) Continue reading The Power Of His Love→
This morning as I laid my agenda for the day upon the table, I thought about how grateful I am for so many things. Family, friends, faith and God are great places to begin. Tonight I will pick up my daughter and her children to begin a Christmas week. Looking at the city’s lights, visiting a fun destination and seeing family are all part of my plans. Continue reading For I Know The Plans…→
Last night I dreamed that I was running. Running every where. But the challenge truly came when I came upon a section where it was wet, muddy and had large puddles. I do not know about you but when I was a child this kind of meadow was a challenge. Especially in the winter. How many times did the run break through the ice or get me stuck in mud. I learned to “run light” and get across as quickly as possible. Looking behind me I could see where I had been. There is something about running lightly that challenged me then. The dream brought it all back. Continue reading Run Lightly!→
Yesterday while taking a day off, a friend and I connected. We agreed to grab lunch. We have been friends for a long time but with my new job, there are not the times to get together there once was.
We got there and sat down. Our conversation was all over the place and focused. But at one point we began to talk about my writing and my blog.I asked him straight up his thoughts and he provided them. Some I understood, others I had no clue and still others I had to get clarification on. Continue reading Willing To Change→
Over the weekend I had two people share with me their contemplation over words they had received from me many years ago. I want to say I am encouraged when someone tells me they are standing on a word. Not necessarily my word, but any word they might have received. Why? Because I often think the world is a fickle place when it comes to words and the idea of “That was great! Can I have another?” Too often they would be better served getting a fortune cookie. So, as I said when someone tells me a word they are holding on I am impressed. Continue reading Words, Words, Words→
“Great! Now what was I to do?” The machine guns (Who has machine guns???) were going off and had me pinned down behind one of the cars. I was safe but I needed to behind the one behind me to get to cover. Throwing some rocks in the air triggered another blast and a hail of of bullets. But they were short lived and I knew they were involved in reloading. I jumped across the hood of the car behind me, looking over to see what was going. While the new clip was now in I was behind the building. Continue reading Who Is Going With You?→
Why road maps? What ARE Roadmaps? It used to be we used road maps. Those amazing pieces of paper that once unfolded refused to be reassembled. But we knew how to read a map. And then we saw GPS enter the scene and now all you do is listen and trust. Unlike God, GPS has a fallibility factor. And forget reliance on your own set of skills. Nope, now you listen to “Sarcastic Sally” as she leads you by the nose to where you have to go. Continue reading Road Maps For Life→
In my dream the young man donned all his protective gear. He started his chain saw. I quickly looked around. What was he going to cut down? There was no tree. He walked towards the pole. I sat there dazed. “What was he going to do” I wondered. As he cut into the pole and wires began to shake people began to scream and yell. While some moved away, others were moving towards him. They grabbed the man as the pole now leaned under the weight of the wires. Continue reading Are You Frustrating Or Frustrated?→
