Wedding Story – 2

Here’s some still pictures.

I love this one for the park background.Such a happy groom. My brother is such a happy person. Myrlande is very happy too, she’s just more cool about it. A great view of her mom in the background beaming with satisfaction – her last daughter to be married. Her mom must have gone through a lot in Haiti, bearing 9 children, a pastor’s wife, widowed when she was 40. Finally this daughter married! And to a man they all seem to trust.

When I see this picture I can’t help but remember my condo mate, Carol, and I in G Street Fabric Store buying my fabric for this dress. We weren’t sure what my role would be in the ceremony neither had we seen anyone else’s outfits. All I can say is my God is the God who sees me!!! Could we, the 2 maids of honor, (yes they had 2 best men & 2 maids of honor) have matched any better? My sister, Lorraine said that I couldn’t have matched everyone in the wedding party any better than I did. That I fit in with everyone perfectly. 

Wendy! I’m sorry. Wedding – Section 1

Yeah! I’m apologizing to one of you my readers for the delay. I said I would take you along with me for the wedding, but I suddenly had to be in the wedding and it wouldn’t look right to be holding up my iPad during the ceremony. Then we were whisked away to the limo to take pictures in the park. Anywhoo…the really apology is that it took so long to get back to the ministry. My real excuse is that I was exhausted. The spiritual warfare, the stress, the excitement, the joy…all tuckered me out!!! Rory, a nurse, explained to me that there’s a medical reason too – something about stuff inside me settling down around my muscles and causing achy-ness.

I’m going to start with you having to go to YouTube – sorry again, Wendy – but WordPress won’t let me put videos longer than a few minutes unless I upgrade to be a paying customer. As you all know that is coming, its just not here now. I thought of you all on my way up – Journey to My Brother’s Wedding – 1

Then while I was on the Acela train ride – Journey to my Brother’s Wedding – 2

I was too pooped to do anything the next day, so jump to the wedding day – Preparing the Bride. Here I couldn’t do all the prepping because I didn’t want my brother to see her before she entered the church, in case he was fooling around with his phone and YouTube, since I was on Live.

Of course we skip the ceremony here because I couldn’t film, but someone was, so hopefully, one day I’ll get footage. Next stop the park for wedding photos – Leaving the Photo Shoot at the Park. I know, 19 seconds. So hoping for more in the future.

Finally food time at the reception – The Reception – Part 1The Reception – Part 2

Video of my trip back to D.C. Victory indeed and seeing a spiritual warfare marriage off to it glorious start – Trip Back from the Wedding.

Part 2 will be all photos, I think.

The Strategy of God 

Make sure you’re in the strategy of God. It makes things easier! Oh Yes! He has a strategy.

Praise the Lord! Why not?

Just praise the Lord!

At Ease Soldier. Stand down.

At ease soldier. Stand down. God is saying this to some of us. Be blessed.

Settle into Patience 

God said this to me the other day – “Settle into patience”. It was such a strong word and I felt it. It was tangible. He says put the scribbling art piece with it and then write a post. So here you go. 

So much revelation came from that “settle into patience”. Such peace. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for some things that God has told me I would have or come into or do and still I’m waiting. But when He said this to me, I felt such peace. A revelation came about how to handle an insult; to not fight or say anything other than what God is telling me to say because Satan wants a BIG fight and blow up. Like the more calm dogs we see on the TV show The Dog Whisperer, God said “you be still and don’t react; don’t rehearse what you will say…practice settling into patience and let God do His supernatural Divine stuff from the Throne Room”.

Then He gave me James 1:4 – …But let patience (perseverance) have her perfect work (finish her work), that ye may be perfect and entire (mature & complete), wanting nothing.
Another revelation was that we learn not to believe as children because our parents made a big deal about our art work but have to ask us “what is it?” You knew as a 4 year old that your work couldn’t be good, you saw the art work on the walls in the home and yet your parents oohed and ahhed over your work. You felt they had to be lying or crazy. No wonder we have problems with faith. But what’s a parent to do? I don’t know, but I know this was a pathway to doubting oneself and authority figures and caretakers. Can the ultimate Caretaker/Parent be trusted or is He just humoring us? Well, we have to know that He is not a human. He is the God of all Gods. So He’s not like any human parent you know. Numbers 23:19 – God is not a man, that He should lie. Like a blank piece a paper before you do your masterpiece, you can start anew and afresh with your Father God. He’s not like your father on Earth. Instead that father is working towards becoming like your Father in Heaven. The section in Numbers goes on to say God is not going to lie, change His mind, say He’ll do something and then not do it, promise and not fulfill. You can trust this Father.
Another reveal from this settling into patience business was to break off of yourself the damage done to you over the years of always saying “I can’t wait till this or that happens”. You can wait. If you can’t wait…what is the alternative? Rushing ahead on your own. Disobedience. Confusion. Delay. Turning around. Getting back on the right path. A whole lot of frustration. You can wait for God’s perfect will for you and you will wait. Instead of saying you’re not able to wait, say you look forward to what God has for you. You’re looking forward to the breakthrough with a holy expectation.

Turn your words around in your favor.
