Was it like that 3 mins past whatever, so needed to adjsut time zones ?

We don't need no stinkin' time zones!

There have been a number of times I have thought the world was over in my life. Better explanation that I had no idea what I could do while maintaining the 'present' I had at the moment.

Those things did change, and I became something new. Again and again. That has been true even recently. Kind of like Dr Who. :)

Then the core is still the same, just another transformation into more of what I am created to be.

Each transformation is kind of uncomfortable, but as much as it seems something new, it seems actually more of truly who I am. Different, but more the same, but different.

By now, I should be used to it, but it is still kind of freaky. Every time though, I see more of me. Really cool after it settles down.

All I am and everything I was meant to be, in harmony - more and more.

BUTTERFLY
by Seven Day Jesus

You see me,
It's not me
It's something underneath my skin
I wanna tear it all away,
And show the beauty that's within
Begin to
Come unglued
And throw away the older me
Just give it time and then
you'll see
CHORUS:
I wanna be a butterfly,
Flying in the sky
With you, today
I wanna lose this old caccoon
I wanna do it soon,
And fly away, away

So tired of always crawlin up the tree
To fall back down again
This lonely place where i began
It's not the place I'm gonna end --
Up so before you sum up all
The missing pieces of my head
There's so much further I can get

(Repeat CHORUS)

Your wind is underneath my wing
It carries me away
It's you --
--My God --
That makes me sing
When I'm on my way
Change a little every day
(Repeat CHORUS)
You take what's old and make it new
So I can be with you,
And fly away, away....
-------

...and "I see you" and CITN beginning to come out of a caccoon, but it can't be forced before it's time...wing damage ya' know. But the day will come when the sun warms up your outstretched wings and you'll flitter and fly in the breeze!..just in time for spring.

When my world fell apart years ago it seemed that connections happened that turned my world around. The only part that really upsets me most is the fact that when I need an ear only a parent can give their not there. They both have gone on to be with the Lord and so have my husband's parents. My parents died too young mom was 49 and dad was 61. Sometimes it just doesn't seem fair. Whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.
Treasure the people in your life for tomorrow is not promised.
I think about the rapture but really everyday is rapture for someone. Treasure today , Treasure Life, Treasure each other

Hi River...sounds a little like my wife Natasha's parents. She's often wanted to ask her mom things but she passed away at age 42 in 1991 and her dad about 4 yrs ago. It's been tough for her, especially about her mom because of a long bout with breast cancer... but Natasha has been very strong and I've seen that it has been the Lord that has strengthened and carried her through.

You know that verse about ..."even if they forget, I will never abandon you" She wasn't abandoned but her mom wasn't there and the Lord lifted her up... be encouraged.

Spiritual evolution is what we all need. The tale of the two trees eventually evolved into the tale of the two gardens. One where the first Adam, never prayed in Garden of Eden and when challenges came he collapsed like a house of cards in a child's fingers. In the second garden of Gathesmane, the second "Adam" Jesus prayed so passionately and there our redemption was secured.

I know our redeemer liveth and surely many will prayer that our spiritual eyes and ears be open to know how far we are. At times it takes a father like you to reminder us we are no longer "caterpillars" but "butterflies"

CITN, all partners of Bishop, change has come and is coming. let us embrace it so tight in 2021 that all negative mentalities will be part of our lot. Let's be positive not negative, active and not passive. Be strong and don't be dismayed.

God bless you all.
