Journal of Joy ~ Monteagle, Tennessee, USA ~ September 10-13, 2009
Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop
09.10.2009, Thursday ~ The flight departed on time from PDX (Portland Oregon International Airport) at 6:55 AM. When one travels by air there are gifts such as the bulkhead aisle seat and the middle seat being empty. This was a morning of simple gifts: space and a quiet flight – rare – but deeply appreciated.
The next flight was not quite so easy, yet one is always grateful to land and collect luggage (that is not smashed, drenched or opened). PTL! Freedom and Eli met me at the luggage carousel at the Nashville airport around 5:30 PM and we began the road trip up the mountain to Monteagle. The time flew by and we stopped by the Monteagle Inn to secure the room we had reserved for the Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop. For those of you that were praying at this time…we express our deepest gratitude.
09.11.2009, Friday ~ The day was full of the peace and presence of ABBA GOD (Father God) as I finished preparing for the weekend. I asked the LORD to arouse and awaken the intercessors as I sensed we were going to need more prayer support. When I went out to rock in the rocking chair on the screen porch in the afternoon, I laughed delightfully at the Praying Mantis that was before me. As many of you know the LORD often brings confirmation of HIS presence and word through my natural surroundings. In the evening, we went to WOTC in Decherd, Tennessee for a corporate Communion Worship Service.
09.12.2009, Saturday ~ The Monteagle Inn B & B set some new parameters (such as changing the time schedule and the room set-up) and we purposed to accommodate them in every way. Flexibility is a virtue. There were 12 present (including a couple from South Carolina) for the workshop and 2 extra for the worship time. We were blessed beyond words as the LORD provided lunch at the B & B, in addition to live worship being provided by Paul and Codi. Such JOY!
As you may know, the anointing and light of YESHUA, draws people in, so we had many interruptions as guests of the B & B stopped in…(smiling). The delight for me is when each person finishes their worship instrument which we are finding it is much easier for them to accomplish this when I bring over 1500 pre-cut and fray-checked ribbons. In previous years, I brought rolls of ribbons for workshop attendees to cut and fray-check…which we found to be non-essential and very time-consuming. It is not essential for everything in life to be challenging, some things, like making a Glory Ring need to be pure delight!
09.13.2009, Sunday ~ The Holy Spirit opened the door for me to minister the Word of God at WOTC, Decherd, Tennessee in the morning. Then following a strategic prayer journey in Monteagle, Teesha took me to Murphreesboro to meet Joyce, where I continued my journey to Lebanon, Tennessee where we joined a Prayer Gathering.
As always, I am indebted to the faithful givers and intercessors of HGRM who make these outreaches possible for the eternal Glory of God!
