As most of you know, each morning when I'm having my quiet time I journal. Everyday I ask the Lord "What's in my treasure box today?"


A long time ago He told me He has gifts for me but I never ask for them. Now I do!


Whenever I meet with Him in my mind, we are always at the beach and there's a treasure box that holds my gift for the day. It may be a word, an image or just a fleeting thought but as I dig deeper it's usually a Profound Aha moment!


This time as I asked "What's in my treasure box today Papa?" He tucked it under His arm, put His other arm around my waist and we walked down the beach.


Then...


He stoped... kneeling down on one knee He held out the chest like a groom offering his treasure in a small box, waiting in expectation as he presents his love, his hopes and dreams for a future together. Holding it out as an invitation to take their love deeper level.


Holding his breath as he awaits the highly anticipated YES!


LOVE!


That's my gift ~ My Treasure ~ A Proposal ~ An offer of intimacy ~ An invitation to explore a deeper revelation of Love. Mine for Him and His for me!


An invitation to say "Yes" and begin a journey of incomprehensible Love.


Does this resonate with you? Can you see Him on one knee presenting you with the box?


He wants to Sweep You Away In His Love!


Click the link above and let Him Sweep You Away In His Love! Let Him take you in His arms.


Next, grab your journal and take time to tell Him what that was like for you and where you want to take this beautiful Proposal of Love.


Thank you for letting me share this Journey with you. These are hard times for many and a moments touch of His Love can breath life back to a heavy heart.


Please take a moment to ask Him if there is someone you should share this with and forward it on and as always, I love to hear your feedback here or you can email me at AriseSandi@gmail.com.


Multiplied Blessings!

Last week I had to say goodbye to Love as I knew it to two different people.

Two very different kinds of love.


First was my daddy. I climbed in his lap for one last picture before boarding a plane to fly across the country for the next year.


As I captured a piece of my favorite childhood photo of my sisters and I sitting on daddy's lap as he read to us from the bible, the Dance of Love and Heartache began...


He's suffering the effects of dementia due to Parkinson's. His smile and little laugh as I sat on his lap, not sure he was with me in the present. The aching question would he know me when I return ripped at my heart, twisting it, fighting tears, Love and Heartache danced.


If you know my father it's a love that's easy. He's always been an example of the Love of The Father. From my eyes, Love comes effortless to him.


Five days later I got the news that a precious friend was transitioning to Hospice and we were invited to send her a video message. I struggled to find the words to express the love I felt for her and what she meant to me. I wouldn't say goodbye, I wouldn't cry!


The music started, my heart was breaking at the thought I would never see her again... anger and pain joined in as Love and Heartache Danced.


I turned to my journal where I have my deepest conversations with God. I asked Him "why do you have to take Doris? I can't believe that I will never see her glowing face again here on earth." He said I Love you Sandra. "I know you love me but give me a deeper understanding of that. Let me truly understand the fullness of that love. Help me to be an example of that love to others. Help me to be all that you brought me her to be and do."


He did ~


The next day as I pulled out my journal, the dance began again.


I cried and asked my Papa God how I could lover her so much after just a short time of knowing her. For many years now His passion for me to love like He does has been a theme in my life. He said "that's the Love of the father" and the dance ragged ~ pushing and pulling me in directions I didn't want to go, had not experienced before.


The pain settled and the realization began to set in...this is the love He wants me, for you to have for everyone life's path brings us too. She is a gift. A gift of Love... A living example of how to truly Love.


I know I'm far from it but I now have a beautiful example of what I'm capable of and I know I'll continue to risk...The Dance.

I encourage you to grab your journal and talk about the Love and Heartache Dance with our

Papa God.


I hope you will share this with anyone you know who may need encouragement in The Dance.

If that's you, please respond here or email me at AriseSandi@gmail.com and let me know how I can be praying for you. Blessings!!


Recently I read a FB post from my friend Heidi Bass entitled Are We in the Tomb or in the Womb - Time for Unveiling is Coming! I was so struck by it that I asked her permission to share it here. I'll do that in my style of a Self Discovery Journey. I hope you will choose to use your time here with me and with Him. Grab your journal and a pen and come along!


This is such a great question for where we are today!


Where are you? I encourage you to start by taking a minute to invite Holy Spirit to join you and to bring revelation and insight where you need it.

What's it like for you locked away in your home. Are you in the Tomb or the womb?


Take a moment to picture yourself there.


Describe it in your journal...What does it look like?


What does it feel like?


What can you hear around you?


In her post, Heidi talked about the enemy --not only has he tried to isolate us for Easter--we're now encouraged to wear masks or cover our faces in public!


While she talked to Daddy God about it he said this is just another way the enemy is trying to mask & muzzle God's people. Then her aha moment came about the words that God had given her and other prophetic voices for 2020 - hidden time is over, it is time for the unmasking & unveiling of authentic selves! It is time for people long hidden to be seen and heard! It is time for Royal announcements and decrees!
