During my devotions on 1/7/83, the Holy Spirit led me outside, where I saw reflected colors of purple and orange illuminated off thin gray clouds. I hadn’t fully recovered from hearing God’s roaring voice speak from the fiery cloud and feared what the Holy Spirit might show me next. We walked down my front steps to the middle of the front yard and turned north. A cloud formation that looked like perfectly formed gigantic black cylinders stacked on top of each other stretched a mile in length across the northern horizon and came rolling through the sky. Then, suddenly, from between two of the cylinders, a glorious yellow light appeared and descended toward me. This beautiful glowing radiance looked like four huge diamonds, each with four sides and connected at their right and left corners. As the Dazzling Light flew toward me, I dropped facedown onto the ground in absolute terror. Just before the light overwhelmed me, I looked up to see the dazzling yellow diamonds transform into an iridescent white Moravian star and fly into a dogwood tree. Filled with fear and a high fever, I went back inside to finish my devotions and asked God, “What did I see?” The Holy Spirit then instructed me to hold the spine of my Good News Bible, to watch for the parting of the pages, to open the Bible to the parted page, and receive the answer to my question. I opened my Bible to where the pages parted to page 380 in the Old Testament and read: “As the priests were leaving the temple, it was suddenly filled with a cloud shinning with the dazzling light of the Lord’s presence.” 1 Kings 8:10-11a. You can see a picture of the Dazzling Light and read the rest of the story at

I'm a free spirit. I hate rules and legalism. I love art and nature, music, the beach and dogs. I like to garden, take pictures and read. I tend to speak my mind and have a rip-the-band-aid -off approach to life. (Brace yourself, this might hurt.)
