RHEMA 9/3/99: EMPTY NEST REALLY ISN'T EMPTY AT ALL
HEARD: Empty nest. Flew the coup. Mom, I still
need you as my friend.
SETTING YOUR CHILDREN FREE 8/06/06
It is true that when you train up your child in the way
he shall go, he will not depart from it. When you have
equipped your children to walk in maturity, there may be
times of silence, but if you trained them in love, they
will not depart from you either. Though times of
silence, distance and distraction may feel like
departing, many waters can not quench love. Always
remember that your children need the warmth of your
love, more than any earthly gift or equipping for their
future. When they are truly launched, they will take the
faith, hope and love that you have so sacrificially
planted in their lives. Thank you My friend, for giving
them to Me, and setting them free. You will find that
when they return, your children will never be strangers,
but kindred hearts.
Prov 22:6 NKJV
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he
is old he will not depart from it.
When I went to bed to rest in His Presence I had an ache
in my heart and could not decide what specifically I was
hurting from in the process of my son's moving. I
decided that I missed our intimate times of relationship
without being interrupted by all his busy-ness and
friends. It had been days of snipit phone calls and no
Tonight as I was resting in the Lord and listening to a
tape, Wayne came in and held me in his arms. It was
greatly comforting as I was in a lot of pain over the
"Mom" umbilical cord and our son moving out for college
DREAM: FLOATING IN THE WATERS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
I was asking Wayne if we could build a little pool
that was just long enough to float in so that we could
rest and relax.
Scene 2: We were enjoying a little pool and he had
his shoes by the steps. I noticed that mine were in the
pool and I was worried that I had to dive to get them.
They were floating just fine. [Shoes represent my peace
in the Lord.]
HEARD: Divine appointment. Peace.
HEARD: It felt so good to lie with Papa. He
misses me like I miss my son.
HEARD: Make it plain to her. Intimacy. Late
bloomer. Late Fall. Before the storm. It's going to
happen in this day and age, hundreds of them. Late
bloomers. Their attitude is, “That is if you want me to
INTERPRETATION: Our Father misses us and wants
intimacy with us, time spent alone with Him. He is
birthing many children who do not have a lot of personal
ambition and direction. They have been late bloomers in
their giftedness, and they are a generation of those who
are yielded to Him without a lot of personal agenda.
RHEMA 9/21/99 WHAT IT'S LIKE TO HAVE A SON HOME FROM
Last night my son came home to do his laundry. My house
was fairly spotless before he came, then a couple hours
later this is the tally: A basket in the hall, a lid a
few feet away, another basket in another hall, a pile of
clean whites on the floor in the dining room, a pile of
clean pants in the living room, a torn up kleenex in
pieces all over the living room floor, a blanket and
pillow on the floor, several used Bounce dryer sheets on
the floors (plural), vegetables all over the kitchen
counter, dirty dishes and pans, leftovers from a yummy
stir fry still hot (10:30 at night), messy kitchen
table, old discarded unwants on his bed, the toilet seat
UP and hmmm, etc.
I LOVED every minute of fellowship with my son, and only
chuckled at the mess. When he left, I went to bed
smiling. Oh and by the way, all was once again SPOTLESS.
