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....

FROM BACK IN THE DAY - THE COOKIE CAPER
This is something that happened more than 35 years ago, but when I think of it, it still makes me smile and marvel.
I was babysitting one of my nephews, J, when he was about seven years old. I was not a Christian at that time. J was at my residence; we were watching television. I decided that we would have some cookies. Before I went to get them, I gave J a mini lecture about the wisdom of not indulging in too many cookies. I mentioned some health factors and several benefits of eating only a few cookies. I told him that he could have two cookies.
J listened quietly and patiently during my mini lecture. When I finished, he looked at me and calmly asked, "How many are you going to have?" His question stunned me because my intent was to have more than two cookies. I sheepishly responded, "Two." J didn't say anything else about the matter. He didn't have to... - do you think that he knew that I had plans to eat more than two cookies? I still wonder about that answer.
I didn't say anything further to J about the matter. What could I say? I wasn't inclined to confess to him my intention, which was to have more than two cookies even though I had lectured him about the health factors etc. My impression of J's question was that his attitude was - "Yeah right, auntie. How many are you going to have?" He didn't ask the question disrespectfully. His question convicted me because I knew my intent. I got the cookies for us and we both had two of them.
Why did I let that kid "chump" me? It was my residence, my package of cookies, and I was grown - he was not. Humph! - The nerve of him! Of course, we know that he hadn't done anything wrong - I had. J was not privy to my private thoughts that day....
What did I do after eating two cookies with J? A few minutes later, while J was in another room, I sneaked into the kitchen and ate some more cookies. As I stood there, I said to myself something like "Here you are a grown woman and that child's question convicted you -now you stand in your own kitchen sneak eating cookies!"
Since J has been an adult, I have asked him a couple of times if he remembers my cookie lecture. He doesn't have memory of it.
Yes, people, I was busted.
