Supernatural Entertainment

Yesterday I was not feeling well and by the evening, I ended up spiraling into a Lupus flare. This meant that I was awake all night in excruciating pain, waiting for 7am, so that I could see my doctor for a shot. I spent the day in bed reading posts and napping off and on. It was a very windy day and the view from my upstairs bedroom window was beautiful. The now newly opened leaves, were swishing back and forth and I could hear the feather light sounds of the wind blowing all around me. My wind chimes also added it's own music to natures concerto.

Late in the afternoon, as the sun was beginning to go down, I opened my eyes that were alerted to a living shadow dancing on my wall. It took me quite awhile to figure out that it was the sunshine coming through a window on the bottom floor, that then projected this long sliver of just one banister post on my wall and behind it was the movement of the birch trees, swaying back and forth. It only lasted a few minutes and seemed to turn into different colors. I grabbed my camera and took these pictures. If you look closely, you can see the leaves changing their shape within the shadow. I later retouched the colors into the photos because I couldn't quite catch that layer of activity.

I suddenly felt warm all over and loved... for the trees, the wind and the rainbow colors, all represented a promise made to me thousands of years ago, by my Maker, that in just a moment, all things can be made right and beautiful...if you believe.

I you?

I'm so sorry that your lupus has you in so much pain. I will sya a prayer that you will feel better soon.

How blessed we are though for these moments when we can feel the Master's touch. In the midst of our suffering, he is with us.

He feels our pain and holds our tears in His hands and rejoices with us in the good times.

Feel better and take some time to relax and let His healing love pour over you.

mmmm...i do believe.

these pictures really soothed me, dar. so cool that you captured the color and motion and feeling of it all.

i am so sorry about your flare. i just don't like the idea of you laying there in pain waiting for 7am for a shot. i wish you could have Jay do it for you when you need it rather than having to wait. is there a way?

i love you a whole bunch and am wishing you a painless, deep night sleep tonight to make up for your lost hours of dreams last night.

thank you so much for your beautiful beautiful beautiful words on my blog today. i had to stop reading it a few times to wipe my face and blow my nose! i felt totally wrapped in your arms with our sister connection across the miles.

what you said was perfect.

i love you and will email soon.

I love those pictures - love the colors. I have a new and profound respect for the pain you endure. My little run in with shingles ain't nothin' but it gives me a hint. I'm glad you can see his promise in the beauty around you. I tell you, I am holding tight to those right now!

It is difficult to deal with extreme pain all alone. How thankful I am to know the Creator and can find peace in his creation.

I remember feeling particularly low one day and wondering if God knew or cared. At that moment I had the sensation of someone sitting down next to me a putting an arm around me. I knew that God was reminding me that he is always right there with me.

Yes, I do get to go to Vietnam and Cambodia. Someone graciously and anonymously donated the funds for me to go. I will keep a daily blog while I am gone. Please pray for my family and our time of separation.

I just love it that hope is a colour - not just one but the whole spectrum! rainbows go beyond words to give us a picture of it...
the way you see these small things despite your pain is an inspiration, darlene.

Isn't it incredible the power images have on us? The way you've isolated that single baluster and changed the subtle shades of color really does invoke a rainbow of healing wishes sent especially for you.

Hope you're feeling better...

Oh yes, I do believe! Couldn't have made it this far along with believing that our Lord is watching every step I take.

Please feel better soon. I'm sorry for the pain that you endure.

The picture you captured is very interesting. You are a great photographer. Keep snapping those pics.

I do Believe, and more so every day.

The pictures were neat and I'm so sorry you are having another flare! Rats, and Phooey!

I love to think of the wind as rivers in the sky and wonder where they go, did they touch a relative of mine from long ago, or is this a fresh, new wind? Some winds seem wicked and some are gentle and soft. But each wind has a flavor and a message.
