You're Not Alone...

Last night I was saying good night to Jake on the front step of my house, then when I went to unlock the door, I couldn't get in! The door was unlocking, but it wouldn't budge. Thankfully the back door was unlocked, but for some reason I thought someone might have been in the house. I think being alone in there is making me squirrely. So Jake and I searched the house from top to bottom(we decided not to be alone in the house together EVER, but this situation called for some hero intervention), and even though there was obviously no one there, I decided to stay with one of the girls from school anyways. I know that God is with me, but there is just something about having other people around that I sense His presence more clearly.

I called my landlord, and he gave me the code for the garage door opener; I think I will wander over there before work so that I can eat some lunch.

I am sure some of you have seen my Facebook status about bellydancing. To reiterate, Jake and I went for a walk to see if I could find the dance studio. We did, but to my chagrin and even horror, I found out that the studio also does tarot reading and numerology, not to mention reiki(which is strange enough). I was dumbfounded for a moment, and my first response was to not go anywhere near the place. We talked about it for a bit, and thought maybe I could try it out at least once. However, I knew that if I stepped one foot in that building, I might be opening up a whole other door for evil to penetrate my life, not to mention the fact that I wouldn't enjoy the class as much as I would like. So I have decided to take it at the community centre where it will hopefully be less influenced by spiritualism.

Hi Sweetie.
I am very late in the response to your last blog but fortunately I just have one to catch up to you.

I guess your first plan to stay overnight was bit nerve raking for you, but with Jake there with you to check things out must have give you a sense of protection

Your decision to stay back at the school overnight was probably the best thing for that night.
I hope by now that you are settling in and that soon the rest of the people, who will be living there as well, will give you some peace of mind.

As for the belly dancing lessons and your decision to take them at the community centre was probably a wise move.
No point in leaving your self-open, for that kind of spiritualist situation.

I hope that we will be able to get together with you soon.

Lots of love NAN xoxox

I thought I would leave you tonight with the following words


Until we have a burden for
Someone else’s soul,
A heart that breaks within us
For the hope of healing’s role ...

Until we shed the tears for friends
Whose heart's ache in despair,
I wonder if we know at all
The meaning of a prayer.

Until we hold the newborn babe,
We do not understand
The depth and breadth of this great love
Propagating man.

Until we nurture, hold, and teach;
The depth cannot be known.
Until we love with deepest love,
The Lord can’t leave us alone.

But when we've lived and struggled to
Understand God’s love,
When trials have paid off for us
And sent our words above ...

When we see, in the light of Love,
And understand His way;
He brings us to the River and
The sunset of the day.

Beyond this veil, beyond this space,
Beyond this flesh ~ this storm;
God has an everlasting world
We get to call our own.

Beyond these troubles, ease will come,
When all things correspond
And live, in tranquil unity,
As one ~ with God!
