DANCE OF FIRE
I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and amend...as errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...
Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.
Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.
Sizzle, spark, explode -
Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -
The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.
This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.
Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.
Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

SPIRITUAL ENCOUNTERS WITH ANIMALS
Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord....
Many people know and understand that animals are spiritual creatures that have emotions which we observe.
Most people have heard of and observed reports about animals alerting to danger and saving lives. Those stories are heart-warming and precious to know.
I have looked into the eyes of dogs and cats, both those that are familiar to me and those that I encounter in my outings at parks, etc., and discerned that they discern the glory of GOD. They also discern when love is being transmitted to them - even from strangers. I have encountered dogs in parks who have come up to me because they discern the love and glory of GOD that our Father has so graciously placed within me. The animals sense it. Those have been spiritual moments. Please share your spiritual animal stories here. I am interested in learning about spiritual experiences that other saints have had with animals.
Here are a few of mine:
Recently, on Godtube.com, I saw a man lead his dog in grace before meal consumption. I was deeply moved that the dog actually engaged in grace before its meal. You can view that if you type in the search engine, "Dog saying grace" on www.Godtube.com.
Some months ago, I sat in a park on a bench reading my Bible. Squirrels kept distracting me. For a few minutes, I engaged in shooing them away because I was intent on reading my Bible. Then I heard the Lord tell me to leave the squirrels alone and to enjoy them. He said that when He was ready for them to leave, that they would go. I obeyed and did proceed to enjoy the squirrels. There was a peace associated with my observance of them. It was also spiritually rewarding and relaxing as I concentrated on the GOD in them. There was a definite connection with His creatures. Impressively, the Lord had me in communion with the squirrels. This went on pleasurably for a bit. And true to His Word, when the Lord was ready for me to resume my Bible reading, He sent the squirrels away! They just left! They no longer hung around distracting me. I sat there reading my Bible and the squirrels did NOT return to distract me! That spiritual squirrel episode deeply impressed me.
On the National Geographic website, there is a video titled, "Battle at Kruger." It has stunning footage of Cape buffalo rescuing one of their own from a pride of lions. Also, there are the animal programs where we observe animals grieving the losses of their own. Yes, indeed they are emotional creatures. I have read of reports where animals are used as therapy/comfort for those in jails, and for those in nursing homes.
Animals can exhibit good and evil. I firmly believe that no animal can be fully trained/tamed to conform to human commands. No matter how much love is lavished on animals, they are still animals. It is in the best interests to remain aware of the unpredictability of the animal species. With sensible choices, they are truly assets that add bountiful enrichment to our lives.
Thank you, Lord for your amazing creatures!
