A Word Fulfilled in Dogwood Spring
For those of you who are waiting upon the Lord, and really feeling the ” Winter Season” I heard this in prayer today. Of course, in the natural it may depend upon where you are living, what kind of spring you are going to have. But, spiritually speaking the cold night is passing sooner than you think. So rest in this time, this pre-dawn like hour, in the glow of expectation, before the sun awakens the earth, while the birds begin their singing. This is the hour of listening, before the roar of the day. As there will be grace to do so. I saw a prophetic picture of leaf buds, and dew, a damp path, in the woods. A stroll in the woods, and in it was a clear path. No tangled branches, or fallen trees. Seemingly, a young forest, renewed. Yes, a little rainy, yes a little chilly; but, lined flannel weather. vividly, I saw the Dog Wood tree in “new bud” form. This is the call of the Spirit. “Walk with me.” I felt the cool wetness of a tender twig brush across the apple of my cheek in this early morning walk. The sound of a brook that could not be seen. I heard him say, again, “Walk with me”. What is the meaning of this extended spring? The former rains of this new season. Why longer than others? Why will time seemingly stand still in the pre-dawn of the days we are facing? Shall the noon day sun be more extreme? Perhaps. Drench the ground, store the dew, the earth will help the earth, as the Holy Spirit will refresh, where He inhabits, as well. An extended grace, an extended (early) spring, in the hour of listening. Tarry there before you move into the “heat of the day”, and you shall be “hydrated” to stand.
We ask that you stand with us in believing that every gift given to this ministry will be multiplied supernaturally by God, and all those who give will be greatly, and wonderfully, blessed by Him.
Thank you for your giving. Deana Barnes

Why Has It Been So Cold This Spring?
By Douglas Main, OurAmazingPlanet Staff Writer | LiveScience.com – Tue, Apr 2, 2013 http://news.yahoo.com/why-cold-spring-201231727.html
“… Although spring has arrived, it may not feel that way for many in the United States and Canada who have had to put up with unusually cold temperatures.”
A little sign from the Lord to let us know he cares about our every day living. It is April 23, 2013 and I am still turning up the heat in the mornings to cut the chill in the house, in a time of year in the South that we normally don’t need it. The message of Dog Wood Spring? Take this time as if it was the pre-dawn hour to spend in prayer before the bustle of the day- When spring finally yields to summer we will have plenty of heat to complain about, so enjoy bundling up in your “lined flannel” with a cup of coffee while you still can, and get spiritually hydrated through prayer, and the word, for the summer days ahead.
Psalm 5:1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up .
