Oh, If I Could Fly Away ~

Posted on

I think we have all felt this way at some time.

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Oh, if I could fly away,
I’d soar into my Savior’s arms
there I would find my quiet rest
and be safe from all that harms.

I would take off and reside,
under the shadow of His wings
I’d be free from all the strife
living in this world often brings.

Oh, if I could fly away,
like an eagle I’d mount and rise
and climb to where His peace
would calm my fearful cries.

I would go right up to Him,
lay my burdens at His feet
and with Jesus I would find
my everlasting retreat.

Oh, if I could fly away,
if I had wings like a dove
I’d soar right up to heaven
and rest in His eternal love.

I would climb so ever high,
till I found His stillness
I would dive into His calm
and sop up His quietness.

Oh, if I could fly away,

Just a Snippet

Posted on

‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.” Acts 2:17

Many people get dreams and visions mixed up or are not sure just what it was that the Lord gave them. Sitting on the couch, wide awake in the middle of the day I was suddenly transported into hell in a vision. The Lord has taken me into hell to show me what part of it is like as a message to His children as well as unbelievers. (Been There – Not Going Back post)

On other occasions I have been sound asleep in my bed when in a dream my Dad is chasing me, a two-year old child, through the woods yelling, “A bear is going to get you.” That was during the early years of my healing process from the abuse I was being subjected to. Many times He would reveal various issues and occurrences in dreams and then heal them.

Be it a dream or a vision the Lord is giving us a message. (be aware the devil can also give us a dream. Visions come from the Lord) In dreams we can’t always assume it means what we think is pretty obvious. Vision or dream, we must ask the Lord for His interpretation and “dream books” with their pat answers, doesn’t cut it.

Last night I had, what I call a “snippet” dream. Very short but with a definite message. My little Beagle dog in this dream usually represents the Holy Spirit in my dreams.

In my snippet dream my little dog was running and I was chasing him and calling him. I had a dog collar and a leash in my hand to put on him.  When I caught him I started to put the collar on him and it was much, much too large, but I decided to put it on him anyway. He popped his head right out of it and darted away.

I woke up immediately and puzzled, I asked the Lord, “What does this mean?”

In a very clear and concise voice,  I heard –

THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL NOT BE LEASHED!

Another Reason Victims Remain Silent

Former New York school bus driver admits to raping 14-year-old, but gets no jail time

He also gave the girl alcohol

A former school bus driver who pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl who rode his bus got off without jail time Thursday, to the chagrin of the girl’s mother, according to WWNY-TV.

The bus driver, 25-year-old Shane Piche of Watertown, New York, was sentenced to 10 years of probation and ordered to register as a Level 1 sex offender, the lowest classification reserved for those considered to be at a “low risk” of committing a sex crime in the future.

Although he pleaded guilty to third-degree rape, he had also been charged with endangering the welfare of a child for giving her alcohol, and first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child.

“I wish Shane Piche would have received time in jail for the harm he caused to my child,” said the victim’s mother in a statement to WWNY. “He took something from my daughter she will never get back and has caused her to struggle with depression and anxiety.”

Piche’s defense attorney, Eric Swartz, told WWNY that he felt the punishment was sufficient for his client’s crime.

“He’ll be a felon for the rest of his life,” Swartz said. “He’s on the sex offender registry for a long time. Maybe not the rest of his life because of the level but this isn’t something that didn’t cause him pain and this isn’t something that didn’t have consequences.”

Police say he met the victim through his job as a bus driver for the Watertown City School District, and the assault occurred at his residence.

Piche will be requred to pay $375 in court fees and $1,000 to register as a sex offender, although he will not be included in sex offender databases due to the level 1 designation.

He will not be allowed to be alone with anyone younger than 17 years old, with some exceptions, and he was fired from his bus driver job as a result of his crime.

Not All Are Reported

1 in 5 girls and 1 in 8 boys are molested before the age of 18. This statistic only comes from the number of reported incidents, not the actual number of events. I’d expect this number to be much higher if all cases were in fact, reported.

Predators are hidden in plain sight – they can be an older sibling, family member, relative, colleague or friend. In fact, 90% of the time a predator is someone with a relationship to the victim and the family.
