Foretelling Friday: Mountain Climbing

Last week I received messaged from God that I shouldn’t be stiff necked, and indeed, I suffered several tension headaches!  This is a very common thing for me, but I will ignore that.  Encouraged, I continue my foretellings.  What does the next week have in store for me? Again, the …

Foretelling Friday (or Really Saturday Because I Procrastinate): Neck Stiffness

Last week my bibliomantic prophesy was basically a wash. I did not encounter a set of four sons in anyway.  I am going to persevere undeterred with my bibliomantic experiment.  This week, still poking at the Bible for some sort of decision, I come up with the following: Now be ye …
