Friday afternoon I laid down for a nap. While dozing, a saw a star-filled sky and the outline of a man in the center. I instinctively knew it was Jesus and fell to my knees crying, from an overwhelming feeling of joy and peace. That was it. It lasted mere seconds but I carried the feeling with me for hours after, along with a kind of electrified feeling coursing my limbs.

Later, while shopping at Wal-Mart, I was still thinking about it and asked Holy Spirit what the stars represented. The impression I immediately got was the stars represented the “great cloud of witnesses”…..

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
Hebrews 12:1 NKJV

Now today, Monday August 19, the “verse of the day” on my Bible app showed this image:

It is what I saw, except it was Jesus in the center and He was facing me!

Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.
Daniel 12:3 NKJV

I am overwhelmed at His Goodness and Grace!! I don’t have adequate words…..


I didn’t want it to end….

The other night I was drifting to sleep and an image flashed before me:

My 9 yo son and I were standing facing one another when we were suddenly enveloped by a bright light. The light basically “swallowed” us. I felt so excited! It ended very quickly and I tried so hard to bring the image back but it wasn’t to be. Still, recalling it brings a smile to my face and heart.

I am reminded of the second verse of the beloved hymn, Blessed Assurance.
