So, I am in a wilderness “season” spiritually and the peace and calm can be rudely interrupted by surprise attacks and loud unpleasant sounds nearby. Yet, trust and peace and hope are the required fare to continue on the journey. As I type this I’ve jumped twice from sounds nearby. Know what though? I am loved. I will be okay. I do not know what’s next or when, but I know the amazing love of my Lord. It’s all good. I was just having some quiet time with HIm and it was completely uninterrupted and I drifted into half slumber of perfect peace in Him and suddenly found myself singing a song I can’t identify. However, the one line in it which was coming from me as I returned to this world was based on the following verse and since many of you are in a wilderness as well, I hope this calms the present situation some and reminds you of how much you are loved:
]3 You will keep in perfect peace
him whose mind is steadfast,
because he trusts in you.

Undefined and undiscovered pleasure,
My mind, heart, and soul are filled with you
And I could just stay in this intimate place forever.
What was that?
Where’d you go?
I just heard something . . .
I’m scared. Hold me.
I see those menacing eyes!
I see the angry set of his jaw!
He about to pounce, I’m certain of it!
Just as he seems poised to,
And my heart stops . . .
I feel, not his teeth and claws,
But your loving embrace.
I hear nothing but the sound your breath.
I feel it on my skin
as you and I become one,
Giving me life as I’ve never known before.
I am yours.

Okay, I feel like I’ve just eaten the bread of angels. I got a waffle maker for a mere 3.00 and that fit my budget and better still the money spent will go to charity as it was bought at a church thrift shop.
Men ate the bread of angels; he sent them all the food they could eat.
