(From Journal #2: August 16, 2005)
Yesterday Lord, You gave me such a beautiful sign and revelation. I’ve been having this strange pain in my right side which is concerning. I got up and walked outside. The sky had become very dark and ominous and the wind was blowing. It was very threatening. I stood in the breezeway and looked at those dark clouds as they hung very low and seemed to envelope my home and me. They were symbolic of the heaviness I’d been feeling. And then, I saw it!
