I must apologize for running so late. It isn’t really my fault though. No one woke me up and that is for a reason I must say. Smartie pants took off her brace for her finger yesterday (heck it’s been 3 weeks). Anyway, I got that finger of all fingers twisted up in a bed sheet. Don’t get the wrong idea, I was making the bed up or at least trying. It turned that finger all the way around. When it was finally loose from the sheet it was flopping like a fish out of water. Pain, oh brother was there pain. So after it quit hurting I just passed out. I guess everyone let me sleep because of that awful incident. The finger is swore and swollen. Just as long as I don’t try to straighten it up, I am fine. Well look at it this way, I won’t be permanently popping people the bird, lol!
When I run across a difficult decision that will effect us all, I consult with you. If you read yesterday issue, you will know that the latest regards us opening up a prison ministry. I have had several responses and I appreciate them very much. The responses so far have opened up my eyes. I never stopped to think about the danger I might be putting you, my dear family in. Due to those facts presented to me, we will not be opening up a prison ministry. I received several emails from individuals that use to be involved and still are in the Corrections Department. Their letters moved me very deeply. All of them said, “we have good intentions but I had to remember these people committed crimes.” “If not, they would not be in the Prison system.” They also went on to tell me about how other well-meaning groups had been taken advantage of. Or the material sent to them never reached them. It was either destroyed or stolen by other inmates. Due to the facts of the letters, I have received we will not be opening up a Prison ministry. I believe this is best for us and our safety.
I know there are some from Prisons reading this right now. I must apologize for getting your hopes up. But I cannot risk, my family and my friends. I know there are honest individuals that want material. They are craving it because the Goddess is working on them and their hearts are changing. But as anything else, a few bad apples spoil the whole barrel. Again, I am sorry but we cannot take the risks involved in open such a ministry up. The only suggestion opened for you now, is to continue to follow the site. We will try to post as much current news and information as we can.
Thank you so much for your input. Thank you for being a part of our loving community. Most of all thank you for being my brothers and sisters.
Have a great week,
Your Deck of Ancient Symbols Card for Today
Death is definitely not a card to shy away from. It does not foretell your impending doom. However it does suggest a period of change and the turbulence that often comes with it are on the horizon. We may not always welcome change, but invariably we must change to grow. Sometimes we have to shed some of the comfort ability of who we are today to embrace the adventure of who we will be tomorrow. Death is the prophecy of such times.
As a daily card, Death tells you that changes need to be made in order for you to move smoothly along your life’s journey. When seen as a daily card, it is likely the changes indicated are on the order of “minor adjustments” in your day to day routine.
