Domestic Abuse Part 3

March 6, 2021

Uncle Albert (?) and me at age 5.  Click on the image to the left to find a map I created for you.  I can hardly wait to go back to Pawnee to reminisce again.  


I'm just going to jump right in the continuation from last week (February 27, 2021).


I was recalling my earliest memories in Oklahoma.  My mom and I were living with a Pawnee Indian, Wilford, from Pawnee, OK.  I don't know his last name but I do remember seeing a picture of him and me on my Aunt June's (not typo) sofa in New York. I must have only been 18 months or so.  Wilford had on a white tee shirt and his long black hair can be seen clearly.  I'm sure that's what attracted my mom to him in the first place - just my observation.  However, she did have a thing for guys who served in the military.  Wilford was a VET.  I'm not sure which branch but I do know that when he was drunk and blacked out, his rage and his mental health, PTSD, went into overdrive.  I loved him, I called him dad and he loved me like his own.


ONE HORRIBLE DAY!


One day I witnessed Wilford chasing my mom around her car with a shotgun.  I remember screaming and crying [from the backseat] for him to stop.  

They just kept running round and round the car. What I remember seeing is his brother, my uncle in the photograph above being there but he looked scared too.  Wilford and my mom didn't stop until the cops got there and cuffed him and threw him in the back seat of the cop car.  I totally remember this scary event because it was traumatic and writing this blog is helping me to heal.  I hope that if you all witness something this scary, please don't hesitate to call 911.  You could save a life and the negative effects on children.  Thanks, guys!

to be continued.......

Native American Spiritual Living


When I say spiritual, I mean it.  My Spirit gets fed with the Holy Spirit, I have feelings of laughter or let out a whoop when I’m worshiping the Lord and Holy Spirit comes alive inside of me.  However, I live in the same world as y’all and I’m always “thinking” and purposely tempted by the enemy like all y’all.  We all make mistakes, we repent and try our hardest to live without sin.  


Sometimes the enemy gets through an opening. You wonder that we may not know how he got in but he doesn’t care about you, he’s coming to steal, kill and destroy.  The littlest sin without repentance opens the door. He brings his fellow imps, soothsayers, and lyres.  Then, before long you have slipped and can’t get up, figuratively. You cry out for Jesus and He hears you, He sends His angels to assist and minister to you.  Holy Spirit is there to give you wisdom and strength.  All you have to do is ASK, SEEK, and KNOCK.


I have found the answer!  Deliverance prayer!  Join the on-line deliverance prayers lead by Rabbi Curt Landry this Thursday night, March 11, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. on the Curt Landry Ministries YouTube Channel.  Below I’ve shared the most recent message from Rabbi Landry. Please watch below and download the prayers ahead of time, www.clmmin.com/deliverance 

I hope to see you on the Live Chat Thursday night @ 7.  

Also in the video below, don’t miss the invitation to the House of David Passover services including the Mikva /Immersion.  You MUST REGISTER to attend the Passover festivities by going to clmmin.com

SPRING BREAK 2021

Our family camped in Medicine Park, Oklahoma last year for Spring Break. I didn't go with them but I certainly wasn't going to miss out on this year's trip. My husband's family, the Gifford's, come from an extensive Christian background. My father-in-law was my Pastor at Faith Assembly of God in Norman, Oklahoma, when my husband and I met in the year 2000. Someday I'll share that sweet time the Lord orchestrated our marriage.


BUT FIRST!

You see, there was some jacked-up crap going on in my life on the Rez in New York. There were a lot of battles, a whole lot of battles going on, and sometimes all at the same time.  I had to endure, I was stronger than I thought I was, smarter than I knew I was and I WANTED MORE FOR MY CHILD AND ME.

The thing is I had received an Associates's Degree in Business Administration so when I knew I had my ducks in a row, (not exactly - I never planned to move back until the week we actually up-and-moved) I rented a Uhaul and moved back to the state I call home.  My eldest and I with the help of my sister and her husband moved to Oklahoma from the banks of Lake Erie, New York.

The year was 2000 and it was early Spring.  We celebrated my daughter's 7th birthday in OKC with family and new friends.  Then, her 8th birthday was spent at our home in Norman. Her friends she invited from her new school, Madison Elementary School, all came to celebrate with us.  I'm so thankful that after all these years, this mama, a picture-taking-fanatic, held on to all these photos for such a time as this.

  

When we arrived in OKC, it was kind of a culture shock but not really.  We lived in a kinda thick-Hispanic neighborhood on the Westside, it was only 27 blocks from downtown. I didn't want my daughter to go to the inner-city schools like I had to when I was in 7th grade.  I had to walk to school, I don't know how many blocks through the Hispanic neighborhoods in the out-skirts of Dallas, TX  (a whole other story to be shared another time). Although I was safe and could hold my own, I was so thankful I was able to put her in a private school for the rest of the school year.  In the meantime, I was going to the chiropractor three times a week from my no-fault accident I had on June 4, 1999.

Remember that date!  Three major things happened on that day, two in NY and one in Oklahoma.


I hope you all will excuse me. I'm falling asleep as I type. We went on a 2 1/2 mile hike this morning. Then my youngest and I went for another walk from our cabin to Medicine Park Bath Lake. It was great!! I'll leave you for now but keep coming back daily for updates. I'll be adding pictures and videos from our trip. For some reason, it's not cooperating with me.

BE BLESSED AND STAY BLESSED! ~ Michele HG

SPRING BREAK 2021

MEDICINE PARK, OKLAHOMA

Updated 03/28/2021 1:22 p.m.

Sorry I've been out of pocket for almost A WEEK!!  


Since the last post, I've traveled to Western New York by airplane.  The airports are not that crowded and everyone has to wear a mask, making sure your nose is covered as well as your mouth AT ALL TIMES!!  

This was also a natural barrier.  I didn't receive any small talk from anyone.  

I'm so very blessed and thankful to be able to spend this redemptive time with my eldest and my beautiful grandchildren.  

You will not get any plans out of me right now though, except that LIKE ALL THE YEARS PRIOR, I'm here for my eldest daughter's birthday.

  

You know me, I take a million pictures.  I have so many right now but can't share them all.

ENJOY THE ONES I CHOSE FOR YOU.  CHECK OUT THIS RUMBLE VIDEO below, I created it too!

NOW THE HIKING...

THAT'S ALL FOR NOW

Please visit Curt Landry Ministries. I'm telling you, the Immersion is a beautiful spiritual experience with the Holy Spirit. Each time I go to the Immersion I feel closer and closer to Heaven on Earth!  Each time I go, I've noticed the experience in the water with the Lord is a supernatural encounter with the Holy Spirit, it's a blessing to the Lord and to me.  

Don't be scared or too precautions because in THIS PHENOMENON, don't let your intellect get in the way. 

"LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME TO ME", YESHUA.

Spending time with the Lord daily is as important as it is to exercise every day. If you read the Word every day your mind will be renewed. Not only is the Bible alive, but it's also the all-time #1 bestseller.


Beware: the spiritual realm is the devil's playground; meaning that God gave Lucifer and his army, 1/3 of all the Angels in Heaven, the second heaven. The second heaven is the realm all around us, invisible to most. BUT GOD gave us humans authority to trample on the enemy and OVERCOME those mental vises he throws at us over and over again. If it's not one thing, it's another (the old cliche'). And they will never give up until they are all thrown into the pit of fire.

My First Immersion at House of David

SWAT/Two Rivers Native American went first!

I've been a partner with this ministry over the past 13 years.  Learning the Hebrew language and participating in the Fathers' Feasts, make me want to visit JERUSALEM!!

Curt Landry is a prophetic, tongue-talking, Christ Loving, God Fearing Rabbi. House of David is located in the North-East corner of OKLAHOMA, Fairland.  

Call the House of David/Curt Landry Ministries to register for this years' Passover celebration and Immersion right away. It's only a few weeks away.
