Beginning Prophetic Worship Glory Ring Workshops and National School of the Prophets ~ Colorado, USA
May 5, 2000, Friday ~ Arise 4:00 AM – Jenn Carr, a sister in Christ and friend drove me to PDX from Corvallis, Oregon…PTL! She got lost in route, so it was an extra long trip, and I am grateful that I always leave extra early for the airport. I flew to Colorado Springs, Colorado through Phoenix, Arizona. When I arrived in Colorado Springs, it was 92 degrees. A beautiful warm sunny day. Bob and Dixie Cole met me at the airport, and I am so grateful to see them again. Miss Dixie began our time together with a a candle light dinner outside on the deck. Her gift of hospitality remains exceptional and delightful.
May 6, 2000, Saturday ~ A beautiful 88 degrees today in Colorado Springs. I awakened to strawberries on a blue china plate, a cup of hot tea in a porcelain teacup, all on serving tray with linen. Miss Dixie had taken the wrinkled clothes out of my suitcase and ironed them. They were hanging in the closet doorway. Miss Dixie redefines the word “hospitality”….she does not take it to a new level, she takes it to a new universe. Completely amazing.
Today was the Beginning Prophetic Worship Glory Ring Workshop at Golden Harvest Outreach in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Fifteen attended the Workshop with Pastor Anthony Turner and Paul providing live worship. First time for anyone of the male gender or black race to attend a Prophetic Worship Glory Ring Workshop…I know GOD is happy about that!
There is a lot of warfare and I am trying to figure out how to manage that….I think I need an intercessor to guard my back but I am just not sure how to go about putting that in place.
We worshiped for 1.5 hours….that was amazing. Such sweet, deep anointing. During the worship time before lunch, we stopped to dismiss the people for lunch with prayer. Pastor Anthony stopped playing the keyboard. The room was quiet. At the end of my prayer, everyone fell out in the Spirit and were all laying on the floor. So, I put on my Elijah Mantle and took my Prophet Worship Glory Ring and Worship Sword and worshiped over them. The presence of God, HIS sweet healing anointing was very rich. I could hear the angels singing in heaven and I was dancing around the room to their harmonious sound as I was swishing the Glory Ring and Sword over people. Then I looked up and noticed Pastor Anthony was playing the keyboard and he was playing what I heard in heaven. I asked, “You can hear that?”….he just smiled, nodded and kept playing. That was an unprecedented first not only in my life but in ministry…I was completely amazed.
As I am still on the learning curve, I realize that I need to re-organize and create a template for the invitation, add push pins to the supply suitcase and pray over people individually with their Glory Rings, instead of just offering a group blessing and prayer. Gratefully God is very patient as I move forward in this adventure with HIM!
During the Workshop, I met Monica and Darla who wanted to host a Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop in Canyon City, Colorado before I fly out on the 14th of May. God is very good about rearranging my schedule for HIS Glory!
May 7, 2000, Sunday ~ Julie Whitney invited me to join her at Harvest Springs for morning worship and church service. Dutch and CiCi Sheets were out of town this weekend, so I did not have the opportunity to meet them in person. However, I was privileged to meet Ken and Solveig Henderson in person. A divine and anointed encounter. Ken prayed over me. Solveig gave me two of her CD’s which I will use in worship at Workshops. Sweet!
The afternoon was spend with Julie at her home. It was the kindness, mercy, grace, love and joy of GOD. A sweet afternoon of great blessing and much impartation. Then we went to Macaroni Grill for dinner with Julie and daughter Sarah (9). Before dinner Sarah played the flute and the piano. My sister Susan, now in heaven for three years played the flute and piano, so it is clear that GOD sent this gift. Very, very precious. This day has been a remarkable gift.
May 8, 2000, Monday ~ Dixie and Bob are both working, so I wrote postcards to mail and then Julie picked me up to share lunch with her and Karen Palmer. We ate at ZIO’s Italian – a fun place to eat. The dessert menu was on ViewMaster…too funny. Then Karen took me shopping for Worship Instrument supplies before returning me to Bob and Dixie's. Just another completely amazing day!
May 9, 2000, Tuesday ~ Dixie made arrangements for a massage which was followed by lunch at Blackeyed Peas. Then we prayed over three strategic points: the city at Shrine to Sun God, at the lake, and Federal Building. Dixie took the day off work so we spent the afternoon praying and perusing thrift stores. We stopped by Hobby Lobby to get ribbon for Debbie’s (the massage therapist) Prophetic Worship Glory Ring which I hoped to make before leaving Colorado. Another delightful, blessed, joyous over the top wonderful day!
May 10, 2000, Wednesday ~ Karen Palmer graciously drove us to and from the Beginning Prophetic Worship Glory Ring Workshop in Canyon City, Colorado. The spiritual atmosphere was very challenging. I learned later that there are more than 15 correctional institutions (prisons) in this area and even more in the surrounding cities. It was very different from the deep pure holy anointing at Saturday's Workshop. I am not sure how to put it into words. Five people attended, two left after morning session, and three made Glory Rings (Monica, Karen and Dixie). At the Workshop, I made a Prophetic Worship Glory Ring for Debbie Levine the massage therapist. On the way home we stopped to pour Anointing Oil in the Arkansas River. An assignment from PAPA GOD! Upon reflection, I believe the journey was for one woman, Monica and for one river, the Arkansas. And sometimes God sends us to just one of HIS lambs needing encouragement.
Karen dropped us off at Dixie’s then we drove to airport to pick up Joyce Breazeale from Nashville, Tennessee and Kim Maas from Moorpark, California who were joining us for the National School of Prophets tomorrow.
After dinner we shared a sweet time in the evening with worship and prophetic words. Bob gave prophetic words to Joyce, Kim and me. It is divine and delightful to have them together to brainstorm ideas for HGRM. We are blessed beyond words. Although today's Workshop truly was exhausting in the spiritual realm, I am grateful to be here about my Father's business. May 11, 2000, Thursday ~ Day 1 - We arose very early to be at the National School of Prophets Prophetic School at 7:30 AM. Bob and Dixie were working in the Book Store for most of the conference. I was purely delighted to be sharing this time with Joyce, Kim, Rockey, Karen, Bob, and Dixie and so many other prophetic leaders of the Body of Christ.
Note to self: While worshiping at the Conference many things kept popping off the Prophetic Worship Glory Rings and I am sure that the hot glue gun is not the answer, even though it is quick, and tacky glue takes an hour or more to dry, it certainly lasts longer and holds the adornments more securely.

May 12, 2000, Friday ~ Day 2 – Went to lunch at a Chinese Restaurant with Kim Maas and Joyce Breazeale…was a great time to be together and brainstorm ideas about HGRM. I am grateful to be around these visionary, creative, professional women who have taught me so much. I asked questions about how to create a more efficient and effective Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop invitation, as I clearly need help to identify the most significant information needed.
May 13, 2000, Saturday – Day 3 – Chuck Pierce shared this story of 29 pastors being killed in Bogota Columbia. Luz and her husband were on stage but I could not see them behind all the scenery, cameras, people, etc. She and her husband were the only couple spared because they had been out of town on the day of the killing. Their lives were in great danger. I could not imagine this. I was in the back on the far right-hand side of the conference, so I really could not see the front of the stage. The worship team was on the right side of the stage and they blocked my view of most anything which was not important to me because I came to learn and to worship. There were over 2000 people at the conference.
About 30 minutes before the noon break, a beautiful woman came over and picked up Carl’s Lion of Judah Prophetic Worship Glory Ring and began dancing with it. Tears were streaming down her face. She is hugging the Glory Ring like one would a dance partner. She came over to me to ask for it. She does not speak English, only Spanish. I can understand her but do not speak Spanish well enough to answer her. So, I embraced her and began praying in my prayer language which she could understand. Only God. Her translator came over and explained that she was the wife of the Pastor from Columbia that had just been prayed for. They were leaving in about 10 minutes – flying to an undisclosed location – for their safety. Her husband was the only one out of 30 pastors that was not executed by the Columbia drug lords. And would it be possible for her to take the Glory Ring with her. It had been made for a friend, one of the hardest patterns God ever had me make, and I can easily say, I did not wish to make another one. However, I asked the LORD, and HE said to give it to her….so of course I did. Her name: Luz Myriam Leon which means: Light dancing with the Lion. She was immediately escorted out of the room with two security guards and her translator. I called Carl at lunch break and told him I gave away his Lion of Judah Prophetic Worship Glory Ring and that I would make him another. He was fine with that…it took four years, but I did finally finish “The White Lion” Glory Ring on a 14” hoop. Mercy Jesus.
February 1998 ~ HIS Righteous Bold Lion! ~ Given to: Carl Voorhees, Tulelake, California, USA. Given to: Luz Myriam Leon, Bogota, Columbia – May 2000. Scriptures: Proverbs 28:1; Revelation 4:7, 5:5. Handmade by Darlyne Blythe and Jennifer Lynn Joy
Before the day was over, John Eckhardt did a Sword Dance, Chuck Pierce did a Tallit Whirlwind Dance. Much Warfare. Much Victory. God Wins!
May 14, 2000, Sunday ~ Bob’s prophetic word as he and Miss Dixie dropped me off at the airport very early Sunday Morning – was that "God was bringing HIS GLORYWALKER a fountain of His Power!” This was a new name for me...GloryWalker...even though I have walked in the Glory Realm in heaven it feels very different to be known as that on earth.
One of the great joys of this journey was spending time with Bob and Dixie Cole, Kim Maas, Joyce Breazeale, Rockey and Karen Palmer who were all members of HGRM's Advisory Leadership Team. A rare gift indeed. Praise the LORD! Glory to YESHUA!
It was an easy flight home. Mother's Day was shared with my daughter Angela, her husband, Shane and their new son, Elijah along with my two sons, Shawn and Jeremy. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. It was a precious day with my family. God is GOOD!
He changes a wilderness into a pool of water and a dry land into springs of water; And there He makes the hungry to dwell, So that they may establish an inhabited city, and sow fields and plant vineyards, and gather a fruitful harvest (Psalm 107:35-37, NASB).
