It was four days ago that God answered my prayers and completed the 366 days since the transition of Honey Si. I am here today journaling and sharing the myriad of feelings that has occurred during these last few days.
What a marvelous memorial event at Perignons Restaurant and Event Center. I admit I was nervous as we had to limit participation because of Covid-19 challenges. The good news is that it was successful even more than I imagined. Jehovah Jireh ( God Provides) and we are blessed.
I find myself in a new wordpress world so I started doubting whether I could get in the groove because I had been doing video journaling but it feels good to write how I am feeling today.
I am reading the beautiful Obituary that describes Honey Si’s 78 years and 7 months. I hear him speaking and warning me of things that came true this past year and we put in our book, Redeeming Grace: Look How Far God Has Brought Us. This includes promises of being available when needed or do a weekly text just to say a Five Hi and Hello.
I wanted to thank my brother Jimmie Skip and Sister Jerri as they traveled to support me. It was just another way that God showed up and showed me Who He is and who I belong to in this season of Thanksgiving.
I also want to thank all of you for being here and there for me. Wyvonia Woods Harris
There are twelve days of purpose before I can claim the gift of Seventy-five years of age. I have set several goals to accomplish in this bridge of time. I want this time to be a period of reflective writing about people, places and things that are important to me. I was reading in the book, Redeeming Grace: Look How Far God Has Brought Us, and I saw a quote about my husband’s near death experience three years ago. The chapter that we co-wrote was set in a window view because my husband described this time as trying to get out of twelve windows. I was instructed in a dream to write about his experience. I also wanted to include others whom I now call my “Grace Contributors.”
Today I saw the the words, window guard and angel in the same sentence and I determined this would be my purpose path. I wanted to remember the times when God set before us life more abundantly. I am convinced that I am responsible and accountable to look to my next level of purpose. I have a great amount of work to see my purpose manifested and I start with prayer, praise, practice, position and positive energy.
I am confident in the work God has given me to move though vision to victorious visibility. When I push the button of breakthrough, I feel unspeakable joy.
Did I give? Encouragement, Shining Light, Time and Talent, Input, Newness, Yes in the flow of my day
Today I found some poems I had written for encouragement and this one fit my starting the day as we prayed on the Prayerline6am. I am blessed as you will see:
It is no secret what God can do, He is able to do all things for you When I think of the things God has already done, It gives me the praise for Father and Son.I stand in awe as I watch God provide I feel His Power moving on every side.
I am working on the opportunity to make changes and discovered a scripture from Deuteronomy 30:16 that I will use as my devotional mantra as I explore this 52 word sentence until May 29, 2018. This will be the completion of my (72 ) 100 word blog journal that I chose as a a goal before my #73. “In that I command thee this day to love thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.”
For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Isaiah 41:13 KJV
Day 11/ 14/17 is an experience day where I spent my afternoon sitting in the Doctor’s office and noting the events of the past month. My husband had been diagnosed with a acute onset of Kidney disease and we had an emergency follow up visit. I was very distraught as I picked up medicines before going home. This is when our truck was rear ended and my day was filled waiting an hour on the police. My son took a picture of the damages to the cars and then I began my praise to God that no one was injured and we were able to drive away. I believe seeing this picture of a wrecked car and being able to tell the story is proof that even in my exits of life’s journey and crashes, I still owe a God a hallelujah and a Thank The Lord for protection. I give God the glory for another day and miracle.
It is now the early hours of the morning and I just listened to an inspiring speaker say that “We all have and will have our ups and downs.” I just got in the bed to practice falling asleep and discovered it was not the time or place. I moved to my blog that is dedicated to my GirlMic Leslie. The butterflies carry some of the names who are prayer intercessors and I said I would count them as others count sheep. I have set a 03::00 goal to go again to bed but I thought it would be a good time to count the people who are helping me get through another day. I decided to double my words of thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for the opportunity of another day to don my wings.
The definition I have chosen is, “ruminate is Figurative. to think or ponder; meditate; reflect.” Today I experienced a muted moment of prayer as I listened to a group of prayer warriors give praise reports and prayer requests. I have chosen to make this observation in response to the prompt: ruminate. I am working to […]

On New Year’s eve, our Church had a “Ceremony of Remembrance and Healing.” I do not feel like I was completely able to participate because I was not feeling well. I chose this as my first 2017 writing because I see many things written about the joy and grace connection of remembering. I thought it might help others if they felt the grief of not having someone present. I am remembering my GirlMic Leslie as I light my candles and speak about her love for family. “Praise the LORD O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.”
