Do you really want to know where I was April 29th?
Thanks for asking. That’s an easy one.
In 2022, I was in the Lake Powell area with my earthly heart throb.
In 1995, I was in Kansas. That day I married my earthly heart throb.
(April 29th video found at @michellewendt247)
It’s been a journey of highs and lows, ups and downs, mountains and valleys.
It’s been a time of growing together and individually.
It’s been a journey of learning new levels of rewarding peace constantly.
It’s an ongoing journey of loving and laughing together more each day.
It’s that sweet and salty combination.
It’s a journey I might not have chosen at times if I had known brief moments of the journey.
It’s a journey I am forever grateful I am on and wouldn’t have wanted to miss.
It’s our journey and the writing of it gets sweeter and more fulfilling each moment.
It’s a journey that I’m living fully going for the prized “WELL DONE” on a daily basis to confidently know and receive the final coveted WELL DONE with my head held high, looking into the eyes of my Judge with confidence and love.
Thank you Randy for asking me to be your wife, mother to your children, helpmeat, friend, adventurer and so much more.
I love you.
Wow! Yesterday was affirmation I am on the right track and irritating the enemy.
Ended up hurting my hip while helping on a repair job at a house.
Got back to the shop where the RV is, sat in a chair to do some contending. There was a wheel missing and I ended up twirling and being thrown from the chair. (That video could have probably made some money or at least laughs.) ended up hurting my knee (get to get a new pair of jeans now as it’s a need instead of a want), shoulder, elbow and hitting head on a commercial size ZTR style lawn mower (PTL I’m hard headed, only lost a little bit of blood as a head wound goes).
No one to help pick me up off the floor.
No one to look at the oozing point on my head.
No one to offer sympathies or laughter.
No one to help my emotional or mental state. (Of all the days for my husband to start a new job and be off phone access. praise for the new job … in Utah!)
No one … Except for me and the Holy Spirit in me.
My flesh was quick to “woo is me” and to “your a klutz”. Fortunately all the teachings and words I have been listening too have helped build me up and I opted not to speak those things against God’s created “favorite” child who is made like God.
Yes, I shed some tears.
No, I didn’t say “bad word” (my term to express emotion)
Yes, I struggled to choose to change perspectives.
Yes, I was miserable and not at peace in the moment so decided that perspective stunk.
Finally made it outside to a chair - will all legs and no rollers. Dug deep and talked with God.
Ended up being led to go to a specific container in a mountain of containers and found a journal that I had for sale at a retreat and … if this isn’t God … a pen to write with that was the same color as the journal. (It only took one, okay maybe three, pages of writing before I noticed the intricate detail of the ink color and journal color and no, it’s not purple!)
I ended up writing my thoughts, my emotions, my heart, my questions, my concerns.
The more I wrote, the lighter I felt. I then thought I should attempt to fill this journal as quickly as possible (5 days maximum - that’s when my life becomes full with my people again). Pretty sure I’ve been carrying a lot of stuff for years that i thought was too little or insignificant to give to God to carry. Might as well finally dump it all and let Him decide what was important enough to pick up and carry and what was just dust to blow away.
During this delightful offloading time, my dog - after hours of sticking by my side - wondered over to the property next to us.
Instead of calling number on tag they called my son, who’s in California, who called to tell me to go get my dog. Lol.
So I hobble across the acreage to the front of the property, to the road, and around the tree row (I’m out in the country on approx 5 acres - no there wasn’t any snow and only clumps and holes, no hills - it’s Kansas, need I say more? Lol).
I hear someone say “take this dog to the RV back at the back of the property.” I come around the tree line … and there is no one in sight.
So I hobble back around the trees and see a man and my dog halfway across the acreage. Tobias sensed and saw me but the man didn’t and he couldn’t hear me. So he kept tugging my dog on leash towards the RV. (I really need a GoPro drone to video me as I’m sure it was hysterical when I attempted to hobble faster on uneven ground! Shoot, even I was laughing.)
Finally got his attention and got my dog.
Literally had to drag and shove my lovable, hunk of muscle up the stairs and into the RV.
My fleshly body was in full on “praise and thanksgiving mode” with new awareness of discomfort in my back and rib cage.
Then another sweet kiss from my Creator.
My husband called to touch base with me. He was taking a brief break. He listened to my physical body impacted vent and helped me dig for my joy and more praise during the brief chat.
Most of all, he let me know I was loved … just by calling to check in on me. (The rest was a bonus.)
Decided that I was going to town to get a pizza as it would feed me most of the week. (Don’t shout me down … I was thinking time, energy and finance wise.)
Went to a pizza joint with a drive through. Found out my husband was ordering pizza in Utah. Warm fuzzy of the heart that we could eat pizza together over the phone in separate states.
Big grin on my face.
Ordered and paid for my pizza as no ready to go’s ready. (I was willing to take most any flavor too.)
Drove around to the front where I was told to wait. Told it would be a while, maybe 20-30 minutes.
Watched several people come and go and get pizza. Thought what a blessing to live local and have a quick option like that.
Decided to be useful and get some online stuff taken care of since I was in a town with decent cell service.
Watched numerous people come and go.
Watched man who took my order deliver many pizzas to vehicles. Even rolled my window down several times thinking it was my turn … but it wasn’t.
Went back to work on my phone.
Placed a couple orders that got accepted then rejected for some crazy online reason. (Now I get to make sure to remember to watch that they didn’t pull any funds.)
Checked the time, it’d been about 35 minutes.
Watched more people come, get served pizza in their car, and go.
Thought about getting out and walking in.
Assessed my physical body, decided that I came here so I wouldn’t have to get out and do excess movement and I was sticking to that wise plan.
So I gave them extra time in case they had a big order or something.
Parking lot cleared.
Checked receipt time and saw it had been over 50 minutes.
Drove up to window.
Talked to man who took my order and money.
He had a dumbfounded expression on his face. No worries, they should have some ready to go pizzas now.
He went and opened the warmers looking for my order.
Checked the ready to go warmers - I’d gladly take cheese, pepperoni, meat lovers - anything. Even if it was lesser product than what I paid for.
Hungry, achy, and ready for some cheesy goodness (topped with sour cream of course - it’s a special day.)
He came back and handed me a receipt and money back.
I thought, Wow! What a blessing. An hour wait and a free hot pizza for being patient and nice.
But no pizza … after an hour of waiting.
I had no words but finally came up with “Thank You” and “Have a blessed day.” I know it was night but hey! at least I was nice.
Drove off to the back parking area to figure out what was available and where to go. Was coming up with nothing.
Got a text from my husband. His pizza order was wrong at delivery and he couldn’t eat the pizza. (He gets to muscle test everything now before he orders or eats - awesome part of kicking cancer and letting God lead.) So since he used my card, I get to watch to make sure it gets credited. At least the warm fuzzy thought of us eating pizza together was nice. And well, honesty moment here … he was eating some really yummy pizza without me. Hey! I’m me and I’m being honest. Don’t shoot me.
Finally started driving and saw a drive thru deciding it would be quick and easy. Wouldn’t feed me for a week but oh well. Tonight would be done.
Placed my order. Smiled as it was obviously a new hire or someone in training. Had to repeat my order options numerous times. Remembered all the times I have been, and will be in the future, new at something.
Laughed at some of the memories. (Like first time i made coffee at the veterinary office in Colorado - still too funny!)
Pulled up to get my order.
Got to wait as being blessed with fresh fries.
Another blessing in my day.
Got my order.
Decided to stop and eat in a parking lot before driving home.
Opened my sandwich and smelled that it was wrong BEFORE I turned the light on. (It Halloween and a dark night with no moon out and no parking lot lights.)
Knew I was in a better mental state as I gave thanks that I had stopped to eat instead of waiting and driving home to eat.
Went back to the drive thru. Was very pleasant and nice - again, someone was new and in training, only way to be (even if not new - we’ve all had challenging days. I mean look at mine today! Lol)
Got sandwich made correctly. Cook even came and verified.
Parked and ate part of it in parking lot. Wasn’t as hungry any more.
Parked in spot.
Greeted by the dogs who were eager to see me.
Prepared my body to hobble to and up into RV.
Got settled in the chair.
Reflected on my day and wondered that I didn’t meet people in my trip to town to bless which always helps my perspective and mindset. Was a bit bummed.
Then the aha moment, the gently thump on the back of the head.
I had endured all things today with just me and the God trinity.
Made Pastor Daniel’s Sunday message at the Iglesia Evangelicas de Mission service on Matthew 11 and letting Jesus carry the burdens … it’s mine to choose, come to full impact in my life.
I could have chose the negative perspective.
I could have chose to curse myself with thoughts and words.
I could have chose to curse others and objects with thoughts and words.
I could have … but I didn’t.
I chose to let it all go … through talking with God in conversation and journaling.
I chose to enjoy the wait time and make good use of it with other things.
Joy does my heart and my mind good.
You know how I adore laughing.
But Joy really does bring strength to endure and go through what you are going through and come out on the other side all the better.
All because you chose JOY.
So what challenge are you in that you need to dig deep and choose joy today?
Share below and we’ll stand with you.
You know where two or more are united …
Share your testimony to help give others a hand up or at least a laugh to where they currently are.
PS: On the Caregiver side and my body recovery support, I’m definitely wearing my frequency device (on pain, trauma and inflammation cycle as my day involved all of them lol) PLUS taking extra Align, extra Fuse and extra Relief sprays on top of my normal nutrients today. So wishing I hadn’t sent the Comfort terpenes with my husband.
May need to order some ahead to my next stop.

Have you ever read a Word and said, “That’s mine!”?
From the bondages of past events and bondages both generational and from my own choices I have first hand experience renouncing, rebuking, and breaking strongholds and spiritual bondages.
Are you like me and you KNOW Fear has no place in your life other than Fearing being out of seamless relationship with God? Yet you still put self-limitations in place or struggle to take the first step you are being led by Holy Spirit to take?
His Word tells us that when we do our part it opens the Heavens or door for His part to flow. He knows our heart and there’s nothing we can do that He can’t fix. That doesn’t give us the okay to go do whatever and break whatever laws we can. Even though He can fix it and bring victory in all things, we still have to stand accountable and walk the consequences of our choices. When we walk in alignment with God’s will they are good consequences. When we walk outside of id against God’s will they are negative consequences.
One of the first things I do with when I get a new client is to walk through a session of liking and loving self. Often we can believe and receive it for someone else but not ourselves. This all boils down to how we see ourselves, our value, our worth, our identity.
It’s important that we like and live ourselves to be able to receive the blessings from above as well as to be able to like and love others as we are called to.
I was excited to read this word Lana shared and am in agreement with it. Please share in the comments below your take away from it.
Here’s her word. And as always … Be blessed!
By Lana Vawser Ministries on Oct 02, 2022 09:35 pm
I heard the Lord say:
“THE GATES OF VICTORY ARE NOW OPEN”
The sense surrounded me that the things that the enemy has held back, the things that the enemy has worked hard to keep God’s people from, from their place of victory, the Lord is now exposing those areas.
There is a significant breakthrough taking place right now, a significant acceleration and momentum of breakthrough VICTORY that is upon you.
The areas where the enemy has attempted to keep you from the victory that is yours in Christ is now being dismantled. The Lord is showing Himself strong, as your great defender, and you will rise again victorious.
Do NOT shrink back, the enemy is doing all he can to keep you caged and keep you from the place of manifested victory, but these attacks are now being disarmed and dismantled.
The Lord is releasing specific strategy and divine wisdom in how to combat the attack that is coming against you, and move further into the victory that is already yours in Christ.
The reason the battle is SO strong and has been so strong is because of the MAGNITUDE of breakthrough victory that is upon you.
You are moving further into your land of victory! Do not shrink back, do not cower in fear, but STAND. Now is the time to stand.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”
The gates of victory are now opening over your life, over your family, over cities and nations.
Many of you are on the brink of the greatest victory that you have ever seen in your life.
IT’S A NEW BIRTHING
As the gates of victory swing wide open in your life releasing the breakthrough and triumph of Christ in your life in greater ways than you have seen, I saw a NEW SUDDEN BIRTHING taking place.
There will be a SUDDEN birthing of what God has placed within you and set up FOR YOU take place. The battle has been so much for the seed of destiny and breakthrough that the Lord has placed within you and destined for you. There is a greater manifestation of the abundant life that was given to you in Christ Jesus (John 10:10) that is going to burst forth in greater ways in your life. There is a great awakening of life and resurrection power that is being released in your life.
YOU WON AND YOU WIN!!!
I had a vision and I saw Jesus standing over every area in your life that you are believing to see the breakthrough and victory of Christ manifest in your life.
I saw Him standing over those places and the atmosphere was so pregnant with the truth of the Gospel, that Jesus is Lord and the sense of the victory of Christ and all things that are out of alignment with what He is saying and has decreed, bowing to the name of Jesus Christ.
As I was watching this vision I saw Jesus’ blood pouring out all over these areas that need breakthrough victory and He spoke:
“I paid for this! YOU WON and YOU WIN!!!”
I saw the words “YOU WON and YOU WIN” being written over every circumstance and every situation in His blood.
These things will be OVERCOME by the power of the blood of Jesus.
They conquered him completely
through the blood of the Lamb
and the powerful word of his testimony. – Revelation 12:11 (The Passion Translation)
Taking communion is CRUCIAL right now, and I want to remind you of that again. Taking communion is a VITAL KEY to breakthrough and seeing the manifested victory of Jesus in your life, right now.
I WILL SHOW YOU WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN OVER YOUR LIFE
I heard the Lord say:
“I will show you what I have written over your life”
The enemy has been working so hard with fear, intimidation, mind fogginess, confusion and discouragement to keep you from “seeing” and “hearing” clearly, what the Lord is saying right now.
The Lord is going to show you what He has written in the book of destiny over your life and your family. In the battle many of you have been having with fear and other things, the Lord will continue to reveal and speak His truth and destiny over your life.
The fogginess and the smokescreens will begin to clear and you will see with greater vision and insight the plans of God for your life and your families life in the new season we are in.
YOU WILL WRITE ABOUT THIS
I heard the Lord say:
“You will write about this. You will write about this victory” and I saw the scribe anointing falling HEAVILY upon many of you. What you are walking through now, the battles that you have been fighting, YOU WILL WRITE ABOUT THIS.
There are new books, songs, writings being birthed within you RIGHT NOW as you walk through this battle that you will write about. The treasures, the wisdom, the insights that you are receiving from the Lord in this time, you will write about these things and many will be encouraged, receive great impartations and breakthrough’s from the huge breaker anointing that will rest upon these books.
THE ENEMY TRIED TO CAGE YOU, BUT THE LORD IS RELEASING YOU INTO GREATER FAVOUR!!
The Lord showed me that through these attacks many of you have been facing, the enemy is working hard to keep you caged.
The Lord spoke to me:
“The enemy has tried to cage many, but I am now releasing greater favour upon them”
Watch for a significant increase of favour. Watch for significant promotions and the Lord opening doors you could never have dreamed of. It will be so clear why the enemy has been trying so hard to cage you as the Lord continues to open great and mighty effectual doors and place greater favour upon you.
It’s not a place of trying to make anything happen or striving, but being in the rest of God and surrendered to Him and watch HIM set things up, open doors and opportunities and strategically place you in places you could never have placed yourself in.
A foreboding spirit of fear has been attacking many of you about the future, but the Lord is decreeing “Get your hopes up for there are mighty and wonderful surprises upon you.
This is the season of DIVINE SUDDENLIES!! You are in your turnaround place. Watch MANY things shift and change overnight!!! My plans for you are GOOD and to prosper you and not to harm you but to give you a hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
“I am doing what only I can do!!!!!!! Fear has tried to squash and cage you, but My power will ASTONISH YOU!!!”
