JUST A REVISED TRAVELING UPDATE 

April 5, 2021

(expanded version 4/14/21)


As I sit here in the Atlanta, Georgia airport, I'm thinking...how have I never been on an airline trip where I had more than one layover? I actually don't mind the alone time. I'm taking it easy, walking so slow, one would call it mosey-ing along. lol chilling between the non-stop movement with the grandkids and the non-stop teen parenting balanced with good ol' entrepreneurialism. 


 In the past, we tried to avoid extra-long trips but sometimes you have to take the good with the bad. An opportunity arose where we could save $400 on a round-trip ticket from Oklahoma to Buffalo. The catch is, you have to accept what the airlines give you blindly because this trip was scheduled at such short notice, less than two weeks ahead of time. 


This opportunity appeared as a disguise. Originally, this trip started as an idea to visit and watch my grandkids while my daughter celebrates her 28th birthday with her girlfriends. We live about 1,200 miles away and I always want to see my grandchildren and my daughter.  My family was cool with it and everything went smooth, from the flights there to the flights home.  This really was the BEST trip to NY ever! I didn't even set my feet on the Reservation - Territory this time.  Only on the highway did I connect with the land.  I'm not sure if that is the reason why it was such a great time, but it was for me, it was for my daughter and grandchildren too. 


I taught my grands how to make and use clay paper mache.  Of course, I had to figure it out first by watching YouTube videos.  We made a dinosaur valley.  I will show you some pictures of the project in the next blog.  



I want to lay down on this airport bench so very bad and sleep; but who does that? I only saw one person laying down with his or her jacket pulled up over their head during this trip. Usually, I don't see anyone napping in the airport, unlike the actual airplane where half the plane sleeps. We should NOT feel ashamed to sleep in the airport.

That would be how I would do it though, a jacket over my head so no one would see me. Wonder why we care about other people seeing us sleeping in an airport. It's not like they will ever see us again. These are thousands of strangers who, like me, want others to mind their own business. 



I want to thank my husband, teens, and in-laws for their support and for stepping up to take care of the things I can't when I'm gone. I am always blessed to be able to visit my family in Western New York when I can. Last year, 2020, when my fourth sweet grandbaby was born, there were many obstacles and I wasn't there like I was with the first three. Covid changed everything from how and where we travel to not being able to visit each other in their home, hospital rooms, and nursing homes. That's just so sad. 


 When I had COVID in October 2020, I was so ready to go to my sweet by-and-by. But, the pain was not as rough as the worse Flu Virus I endured. My husband took good care of me, I fell in love with him all over again.  Boy, we aren't going to touch on marriage in this blog.  But, we have come a super long way!  Our story is miraculous - I think anyway.



 This airline, United, is sitting, active, and inactive military service members first!  

Then the elderly, and parents with little ones go next then the diamond and platinum clubs. Since COVID, they seat patrons from the back of the plane to the front. I really like this system a lot better than when they sat from the front to the back.  There are fewer people to bump into along the path.  


Well, this is the last leg of my last flight on this 15-day trip.

I'll be home in my own bed, sleeping like my newest grandbaby in three hours!

I hope to get back on track with my posting two times/week.  

As of now, I'm still getting back in my groove.


Blessings! Michele

An ongoing series of informational entries: Guess the Band to these lyrics

April 10, 2021

I want to start out by thanking you for landing on my website. However you arrived, it's no mistake!  I LOVE HEARING THAT, don't you?  It's NO MISTAKE you are here.  I wouldn't say that is Newage teaching, I think that a lot of people are just wanting to VIBE!  So, throw down your verbal weapons, and let's all just get along man!  Yes, I called you - man - and I said it in my head like Tommy Chong - hahaha!


I like to share things that I have learned, the tough times I/we walked through, and the joy of overcoming.  I also like to share my autobiography as I search for myself,  I've been taught to ask the Lord, "search me, is there anything hiding in the corners of my life?"

If you gain anything from reading these semi-weekly blogs,

MOCCS WITH A BLOG,

I'm much obliged

(question: what song has those three words in the lyrics?  It's a Rock-N-Roll song from the 60s-1970s.)


E-mail me the answer and if you're right - I'll send you a surprise digital photo from a brand new photo collection I created.


ANYWAY, I was blind to my shortcomings I HAD and sometimes still have a lack of sympathy or empathy for someone's feelings.  Boundaries - - - why wasn't I told, as a teen, what boundaries were and where were they??  Why was I left unsupervised for hours and hours?  Why were my decisions based on the lifestyles and influences of HOLLYWOOD!  I didn't have boundaries in my life,, sadly I was raised on HBO, Showtime, and MTV - literally!  Ok, not literally but definitely figuratively because I thought I could get away with anything and I didn't care if anyone else got hurt.  I was a lonely and hurt puppy and I hurt others.  


When you know the enemy is using you as his pawn to kill, steal and destroy, it's a slap in the face.  I didn't think things through and didn't care about the consequences of my mistakes.  I was on the other side of the "spiritual fence" and going at a speed too fast for love (that line is from a song - guess who?? Hint, they were known for trashing their rooms when they were touring.)


E-mail me the answer and if you're right - I'll send you a surprise digital photo from a brand new photo collection I created.


That is just the thing about my blogs and the direction I'm headed, we are moving forward and forgiving ourselves and others and that is a double blessing.

Later ~ Michele HG

The Lord, God, Creator of the Universe

heard my cries and said,

"what others say is impossible

is NOT IMPOSSIBLE

FOR ME"

~

He reminded me that they hated

Him first.  

AND HIS SPIRIT/HOLY SPIRIT

LIVES IN ME!

They don't want to be in HIS presence

or to be around someone with

His Spirit alive in anybody!

~

The enemy, (the devil, his fallen angels, cohort, imps, and evil forces)

oh, the enemy!  The tormentor, 

the tempter, the murderous evil-doers, and vile Ones work through the souls

who are NOT FOR HIM

~

It's spiritual warfare.

~

He graciously delivered me from

the desire to abuse alcohol.

I ASKED OVER AND OVER 

again, I didn't ease up.

He was the only one that knew my heart

~

My soul - my mind, will, and emotions were stronger than

my Spirit man. 

~

NEXT GIANT GOING DOWN

PHARMACIA!

~

It all makes sense now!!!

I'll share a dream about the revelation I was just told by Holy Ghost, some other time.

He asked me 

if I would do anything for Him

I said yes!

He asked me 

No matter what it is?

I said yes!

* * * *

NOW IS THE TIME!


HE HEALED ME FROM 

AN INCURABLE DISEASES

~

HE FORGIVES ME

WHEN I ASK

~

 HE PICKED ME UP AND

SET ME ON THE RIGHT PATH

KIND OF SLIPPERY,

BUT I HAVE FREEDOM 

TO STAY OR GO

He is

LOVE EVERLASTING

Any day of the week, except when I'm on vacation (wink), I'm thinking about topics to share and how much more I want to open up to you, (you reading this now, my readers, can I call you my readers?) my readers.

* * *

So, here it goes,

the title of this blog is,

EMBARRASSMENT

* * *

MOCCS WITH A BLOG:

EMBARRASSMENT!

My teenage kids get embarrassed over the silliest things. I mean, I am pretty straight up with them so they don't get blindsided by something I blog about that might embarrass them. They have this social life and I can't make them look bad in their last years of high school, capeesh? ALL THAT SPOKEN IN AN ITALIAN MOFIA ACCENT.

* * *

I was totally embarrassed and ashamed of my mom growing up so

I totally get it. But the times are so different now. When I was a teen, (dot, dot, dot) well, let's just say you won't be reading about it on my blog. HAHA JUST KIDDING!

That would be twisted FAKE if I

hid anything because that's part of

who I am and where I came from.

Shoot - thru this process I find myself talking about myself a lot and maybe repeating some things - sorry. I will try to stick to the subject and not repeat things either.

I know it's not all about MEEE. I'm honest, maybe too honest. NOOO, no one can be too honest right? But, that's not the point, the point is:

I don't boast for my sake,

I BOAST FOR THE LORD!

It's scriptural

ONLY HE can change someone like me into what I've become, his favorite daughter.

DON'T HATE - YOU ARE AS WELL

IF YOU

Love the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth you can sit on the right-hand side of the Father with Jesus as our Advocate

and Holy Spirit our counselor.

~

Oh, I'm not spilling any tea either,

I'm not a gossip - I try not to and don't want to be labeled gossip.

* * * *

To my teenagers listen please - everyone on the planet is different from one another. I'm different and so is their dad; but we were made for each other. We can be ourselves and not judge each other. Well, wait that not true, sometimes we do judge each other, and pick at each other's words and act like 2-year-olds. Then, It escalates into a full-blown shouting match almost immediately lol Sometimes we ARGUE! <<gasp>>

and have to leave the presence of one another to calm down. That's a tactic we learned from one of our many marriage counselors.

HOW ON EARTH DID WE GET TO TALKING ABOUT THAT?

We've been in marriage counseling pretty much ever since our second year of marriage. We sought out my counselor which was also my Father-in-Law at this time. The roles changed but the love k Of course, we tried it the way the Bible says to treat one another. We fasted and prayed! MORE COUNSELING, ould go about this. with lots of prayer from the Elders of the church. We didn't live in Noble at the time but a retired pastor had a prayer ministry. We set an appointment and him and his intercessor (a person that prays to Jesus Christ) counseled us and prayed with us, for us over us, anointed us with oil and a miracle happened!

This miracle

* * * *

This coming June 1st will be our 20th anniversary. We celebrate this date instead of our second wedding date of March 23, 2013, when we were re-married. I don't think we planned either wedding with more than two days' notice. It was all God how everything fell into place His mighty hand on our small family of nine (at the time).

That day in March landed on Palm Sunday, which made it a more special day to me. Because I love learning about Jewish roots and the history of according the HIS WORD.

was cold and rainy. I like rainy but cold and rainy - not so much. Then we went to our favorite restaurant to celebrate.

* * *

There are no identical twins, no identical snowflakes, nor fingerprints, footprints, nor DNA. Therefore, some parents are WEIRD, and your kids were present on that blessed day when God was matching your spirit up with your parents and you ended up with the WEIRD-LO parents. Ha, "weird-lo" from Lilo and Stitch.

I know it's just a phase. If they knew the Lord's intentions, they are good and working through me.

* * *

Every day in some form or another, I wonder to myself, how much of my personal story should I share on this blog? Who really is my audience? I'm thinking: I'm really blogging about some adult and mature issues coming up and the ONLY reason I would hold back is because of someone getting embarrassed.  

I've actually held back on sharing some major stumbling blocks I'm going through right now.

The Lord wants me to share with you how I've coped with mental illness; depression, anxiety, sometimes bipolar (LOL that one is hard to admit and I don't know why).

I'm on a handful of medication and I want to be done with it all. I'm praying, asking the Lord to deliver me from needing any medicine. And yes, medical marijuana is on top of that list of prescriptions.

* * *

DON'T DRINK ALCOHOL AT ALL

You will see the Lord work more and more miraculously if you are sober.

In His Word, He says that those who love HIM can and will do MORE HEALINGS AND MIRACLES THAN JESUS DID WHEN HE WALKED THE EARTH.

* * *

I heard there are scrolls in Heaven for each and every one of us He predestined or chose. I asked the Lord to help me in asking Him daily that I do everything that is written on my scroll for today.

* * *

You know that giddy, goofy feeling that bubbles up inside when you're at church? Usually, my inner ear will almost want to pop but the muscle or whatever releases and it goes back to normal in 2 seconds. Or my ears will feel hot, not burning hot, just hot. When I raise my hands to praise Him, my fingers get tingly. The first time that happened, Pastor Norma, was present at the event. I told her what was happening and she said, "it's the Holy Spirit." I then had the nudging of the Holy Spirit for me to release a TOUNGE; a prayer in the heavenly language. I went to the microphone and released the prayer and although I was nervous and wasn't really sure if it was me (my flesh) or the Holy Spirit that wanted to get on the microphone in front of everyone.

After I said the prayer, I went back to where I was standing and someone immediately took their turn on the microphone and she released the INTERPRETATION of the TONGUE. It was awesome because it confirmed that it WAS FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT. THOSE ARE SOME OF THE MANY WAYS I KNOW THE HOLY SPIRIT IS MANIFESTING IN ME

His love and joy that comes upon me are so pure and sometimes relaxing and sometimes my heart races like I'm on the biggest high on crack, yes, crack cocaine. I mean you know I was no angel.

Lastly, SOAKING is a great way to communicate with our Heavenly Father. Soaking is a term we Christians use to describe the act of meditating with worship music in the background.

We communicate with Him individually and as comfortable as we can get in the setting we are in. The floor is my best friend. We record what the Lord says to us, the thoughts we are thinking, I write it down. It's journalling with the Holy Ghost.

There's so much power when 2 or more gather in Jesus's Name.

- WE ARE JUST A VIBIN' WITH HOLY SPIRIT.

* * *

Sometimes, during worship at church, I cry and really mourn for others for Jesus. It's a deep cry and I know it is the Lord because I know how He works through me during this time. I'm not crying because I'm sad about my situation, I don't think lol jk.

I cry because I'm full of the Holy Spirit and that's just how it is right now. It might be for a season of time and it might always be like this.

Sometimes I laugh, giggle, and smile the biggest cheesy smile. Those are the ways he touches me when I worship Him. He's fun to be with. It doesn't just stop at church. He's inside me and ready at any moment to pray for someone to be healed.

PEACE OUT!
