Birds of a feather....

Music:Heaven's Light-Hunchback of Notre Dame
Mood: Electrified

Never has a night been filled with more possibility then tonight. I feel like I have finally woken up after a sleepy haze. I woke up with a start while I was at work. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I am worth getting excited about. God's work is in the air. Pungent and sweet like something I remember from a long time ago...time BEFORE this time.

I am not one for flattery, and I know quite well that he will read this post, but I will just say this about J.D--He has completely turned on it's ear any and all notions I previously held about what it means to be a true follower of God. A part of God's Army. His faith is unreal to me, and it is that very faith that makes everything so real. I honor you for this.

I recently discussed the comfort that comes from knowing what I know now that I would still choose my own emotional baggage over my proverbial neighbor's. And I do still maintain that this is true. It is also a great comfort to know that when not hindered by the veil I DID choose this baggage, these trials. I knew at that time what I have always known somewhere within my mortal mind....This is right, this is the way things should be, this is God's plan.

Tonight I feel as if I could do anything. My faith is that great. I feel I could shake off this mortal coil and transform myself to my perfect body. Become who I will be when all is said and done. But I know this is not what God wants for me. I still have a definite purpose to serve here in this veil of tears. I still have a great deal of growing to do...

I am a private person when it comes to my beliefs. I believe in free agency fully and completely. But there comes a time (especially in these latter-days) when one needs to put both feet in one camp or the other. Do a spiritual hokey pokey, and turn yourself around. After all, that's what it's all about.

My heart and allegiance have always belonged to God although there have been times where I have been distracted by the ways of mammon, or worse, the ways of demons. Yet here I am, protected by God's love through it it is time to spread the word. The word that the end is has already started in fact. I see it everyday the literal demons in people's faces and deeds. It is quite unnerving. Time to choose sides people. And I implore you to choose wisely. There are no second chances.

Before you think me a hypocrite please know that I do not write these things as admonitions for all, I include myself in this advice because I am one in such dire need of it. I need to step up and fight, and take the gauntlet that has been dropped at my feet.

Right now I am a Duck, working furiously under the surface to get through each day. But I will be a Phoenix. I WILL RISE FROM THE ASHES OF THE CHAINS THAT BIND ME.

The Duck takes flight

Music: Behind Blue Eyes-The Who
Mood: Fresh-faced and fancy-free

Hello, you all may remember me from my previous blog ( I have decided to start fresh...everyone deserves a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression. Mine is a life of whimsy and wonder. Come along for the ride, I guarantee you won't be bored. Here at Duck on a wire we will explore what makes me--well--me! I've done a great deal of searching over the past several months and I have come to find that the more things change the more they remain the same. I will update on my life and such in a later post, but for now we will leave this as a re-introduction. Old friends, new friends, and those in between...welcome to my life!
