Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward Him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means ”Teacher”). ~John 20:16

(Inspired by Mary Magdalene)

God, I don’t want much. Just the mist from your waterfall is all I require right now.

With bated breath and a mind of their own, my pores open and rise, humming while the breeze elevates their melody beyond my senses.


A voice is calling me. The clouds open. I turn and see… Heaven is standing before me. It looks cool and inviting, warm and comforting, open and eager to welcome my old soul.

The joyful tears shed in another realm feel like a spring rain to my dry spirit.

My hope thought lost has returned.

I dive into its liquid abyss and glide through clear lakes, roaring rivers and deep seas alive with adventures waiting my attention.

Uncharted territory is my residence now. The never-ending is my permanent address.

I am ready to flow.

Intimacy has come home.

He said He would never leave me, never forsake me, never forget me.

Will others ever understand our synchronicity?

No, not the cynics who can’t understand the ways and means of God’s WAYS and MEANS that thrive in my body of life.

They couldn’t understand the place of bliss I frequent on days and nights like this.
