Today (5/24/06)  Wayne and I went shopping for a Hammock for our daughter-in-law.  The only thing quickened about the experience was that Wayne said, "You have to have your youth to be able to sit in one of these!"  I smiled thinking of the BBQ where we saw our niece climb into one and promptly roll over onto the ground!


When we arrived home, I had the following email sent to me:


Dear Sandy and Wayne,

I just  remembered something that I "saw" when praying for you two last night. 


Bubbles arising and then popping, but...with a difference. Each bubble contained GIFTS that came  floating down to you two.  There were LOTS of bubbles. JOY Bubbles is what I heard.  I think you have used that term in the past Sandy. 


Hugs, and happy popping!


That Word really blessed me as I have been putting together a new book about How God Speaks Through Humor and Bloopers.  I have really enjoy assembling it and been laughing and chuckling a lot.  In the process I have been praying that the Lord restore our joy.


Isa 61:6-7 NKJV

But you shall be named the priests of the LORD, they shall call you the servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast.  Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs.


The last 2 weeks with everything being hit, my parents, my tooth, niece's cat, work, and church, I could no longer keep up the pace and needed to rest and recoup so I could be of some good use for somebody.  I have no desire to quit my calling of scribing, but needed to take this season to rest.  I have "rested" about one week and already missed it.  Night before last at church, Wayne saw me taking notes, and said, "I thought you were on sabbatical."  I knew my sabbatical would be short lived!


When we came home from shopping for the hammock, I downloaded loving letters from my update I sent out and I was just soaking in them and being uplifted.  I came to one that started out, "I had to smile when I read your update."  She mentioned how she has just come from a long oasis time with the Lord.  The moment I read that intro, the Presence of the Lord descended upon me like a warm, soothing blanket where I just knew God's feathers were not ruffled, and He was just chuckling over me! 


Then as I was reading this warm Word, I was so drawn by the love language and felt He was really, really drawing me and wooing me!  This Word was anointed.  About half way through this, I started to feel the Lord's Presence descend upon me and I started to feel like there was not a care in the world.  I felt like a love sick bride just wanting to follow my Groom into His chambers.  The more I responded to His Presence and call, I started to giggle because His Presence was so tangibly strong upon me, that I KNEW this was exactly what He was doing to me!  He was wooing me with this beautiful love letter.  It got to the point, every sentence I was laughing and then giggling, then laughing again.  Then I got the this point in the letter: 


"...In My great heart is a hammock, where you and I will spend much sweet intimate time together. It is a sound-proofed place where the worries and concerns of the world will not enter. I have seen the beginning from the end..."


He hit me like an explosion!!!  I was so inebriated in His Presence, and I had peals of laughter rippling through me.  I KNEW the Lord was wooing me with everything He could muster, and totally overpowering me.  I laughed and laughed, and giggled and giggled. I was totally done in with His wine.  I couldnt even finish the long prophesy she sent.  I staggered from my computer chair to bed and laughed for at least a half hour.  Ever been "stuck" in a hammock, with God's arms wrapped around you?  He's got such a grip, that if you even try to get away, you simply roll over onto the ground and stay cocooned in His loving Presence!


After I was sober enough to sit up, I had 2 phone calls with work and church calling at the same time.  Work was in crisis mode and I just floated through it, offering prayer and wisdom.  When I finally got back to pastor, I told him about my experience, and I was still just soaring in His gooey love.  I could hear Pastor chuckling. 


I have never experienced such strong joy bubbles since 1999.  God is good!!!!!!  I can only imagine how awesome it is going to be when He descends like this to whole congregations.  When He came to Toronto and the churches with the laughter, I was stone sober.  I thought they were all nuts.  (smile)  Man this new stuff He is going to pour out is DOUBLE PORTION joy bubbles. 


POP!!!    :o)




My love-sick bride, you may think your world is a mess and everything is falling apart, but just one look of My loving eye, and we both know you are a gonner.  I AM  perfectly able to handle every little detail that avails you, and then woo you down the hallway of faith and right into My chamber of love.  I have such raptures of joy and peace waiting to descend upon you!  Double portion joy is yours!


How I LOVE your response to Me.  You give ME utter joy and delight as I embrace you and you so become so enraptured in My Presence!  I love to give you Myself.  And I love to just cocoon you in My arms and hold you there until you are finally at peace and can let go of all the cares.  Tell Me what really matters in life.  Tell Me Who really matters... smile.  Yes I know you well, My beloved bride.  Even now I AM beckoning you to leave it all behind for an afternoon and spend time alone with Me.


Mark 6:31-32 NKJV

And He said to them, "Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while." For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat. So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves.
