Recently I was with a group sharing fun, food and fellowship, otherwise known as "living, laughing,  and eating chocolate".  Right in the middle of sharing an experience, it seemed as though there were 5 other conversations going on, so I stopped talking,'s obvious that what I'm saying is of no interest to the others.......when one person leaned in, made eye contact with me and said, please finish your story.....I'M LISTENING!   In that instant I sensed the Holy Spirit whisper....I'M ALWAYS LISTENING!    It washed over many times have we just felt like NO ONE is listening.....we aren't even sure if God is hearing our prayers, and JESUS leans in and says, "go ahead, tell Me.....I'M LISTENING!"  In fact scripture says "he inclines His ear to me."

Psalm 116:2
For he hath inclined his ear unto me, and I will call upon him during [all] my days.

Think about all of the conversations going on, all the stories being shared with Jesus RIGHT NOW, and yet HE HEARS WHAT I'M SAYING!!!  How incredible is that......I finished my story, and although the whole group did not hear the end of my story, the ONE that it was intended for, heard it and their heart was touched and my heart was touched because I was reminded......that HE IS LEANING IN TO HEAR WHAT I HAVE TO SAY!

I am overwhelmed by God’s grace and mercy this morning! 

A few days ago a Girlfriend showed me how to tie a scarf to turn it into a cute vest.
This morning, I pulled one of the scarves out that I had worn often,  after I lost my hair due to the cancer treatment .  

As I slipped on the vest, tears formed in my eyes and trickled down my cheek.  I sat down in the floor of my closet and thanked God that I am able to DREAM AGAIN!    Re-inventing the use of one of my scarves that reminded me of days past, full of pain and sorrow, TODAY, brought about tears of gratefulness and praise! 
Last fall, our Women’s Conference theme was DREAM AGAIN!   Helen Keller once said, “Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.”  I know what it is to suffer.  Today, I am so grateful to be a VICTOR not a VICTIM to the suffering.  I am an OVERCOMER!  I AM DREAMING AGAIN! 

The scripture says in Habakkuk 2:2-3 “And then God answered:  Write this.  Write what you see.  Write it out in Big Block letters so that it can be read on the run.  This vision message is a witness pointing to what’s coming.  It aches for the coming, it can hardly wait!  It seems slow in coming, wait, it’s on its way.  It will come right on time” (The Message translation)

Although there were times during my suffering, my vision was clouded, my dream seemed to be fading, God, in His mercy walked me through the “valley of the shadow of death” and today, when I allowed my SCARF TO DREAM AGAIN……………….I too felt the surge of His Presence in my Present!

Although it seems slow in coming, WAIT, it’s on its way, it will come right on time!
