Journal of Joy ~ La Grande, Oregon ~ January 12-15, 2001
Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop
01.12.2001, Friday ~ The Holy Spirit strongly encouraged me to depart earlier than first planned. As the unfriendly duo of black ice and dense fog were temporarily camped along Hwy 84, I was grateful to have the extra time and to arrive before nightfall. Phil and Lynda hosted the Workshop and ministry outreach this weekend. Not only are they true friends, they are faithful friends of ABBA ADONAI! The LORD has been faithfully generous in sharing HIS friends with me.
01.13.2001, Saturday ~ As we had setup the Workshop area the evening before, we arrived about 8:30 AM. Sixteen women attended the first Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop in La Grande, Oregon. It was a fun, easy time filled with the presence of God’s unconditional love and peace. The 12-hour day was filled with the tangible presence and power of God. Stephenie provided the worship music for the Workshop and lovingly served others as needs arose. Each person completed their Glory Ring, which is always a miracle to me. At this time, in our ministry, we did not ask for any registration fees. We provided the books, Holy Anointing Oil and the supplies for the Glory Rings. We simply trusted the offerings to be sufficient to cover all expenses.
01.14.2001, Sunday ~ This sacred morning was a time of rest and preparation for the evening service. In the afternoon, we met my son, Shawn, who joined us and was an integral and intrinsic part of the worship team that evening. This was a rare gift in ministry as my son resides in Corvallis, Oregon, where he works full-time as a civil engineer. After I ministered the Word of the LORD, Lynda asked me to publicly give prophetic words over each Glory Ring made at the Workshop yesterday. This was more than a stretch for me personally, as I usually give private prophetic words to the individual making the Glory Ring, not before an entire congregation. Yet, the LORD’s peace and anointing surrounded me. During the time of giving the prophetic words, one of the men attending received divine revelation and wisdom knowledge from the Holy Spirit about the Glory Rings. When he shared what the Holy Spirit imparted to him, it immediately became a door of revelation and understanding to others. PTL! Not only was this a first, it was a sweet rare gift from my Heavenly Father!
During the worship time, Lynda saw three large angels around me in a triangle pattern. Once I began moving, they moved in a circle around me, each holding a very long silver trumpet. Prophetically, she saw me in a wedding dress with Handel’s Messiah playing in the background, which is symbolic of ABBA ADONAI preparing the Bride of Christ for HIS Son, Yeshua.
Following the closing worship, prayer, and ministry time we shared table fellowship and then retired for the evening. The LORD’s favor and blessing rested upon the gathering all evening.
01.15.2001, Monday ~ After a time of debriefing, packing and finishing all that the LORD desired, Shawn and I left around noon, heading towards Portland, Oregon. Deadman’s Pass was stressful traveling with the treacherous trio of dense fog, falling snow and black ice. We stopped along the journey for dinner and I savored the time with my son, which has become a very rare gift indeed.
Although, I arrived home exhausted, which was common with the intense daily chronic pain, I realized that I received a new level of more energy, peace, courage, faith and boldness from the throne of God. The LORD was strengthening and renewing me daily. Praise HIS Holy Name! HE is faithful. For the Eternal Glory of GOD!
