Real Talk: Don’t silence your Jaybird.

https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=9AjkUyX0rVw&feature=share

I admit it. I wanted to silence Jaybird, again.

Letting her fly, free, gets ME in all the trouble.

Letting her, fly, free, exposes ME. It exposes my inner mortification in her relentless, indefatigable love for people.

Me: Don’t you understand? You are too damned much for folks. Some days, you, Yikes, Egads are too damned happy, optimistic, loving. Yikes! Egads! See!? It’s too early for all your racket. You kept me ALL night.

Jaybird: Folks are hurting. They need. Our prayers. Our joy. Our love.

Me: Yes, but do they need YOU?

Jaybird: That’s besides the point. They need. End of story, far as I am concerned.

Yikes: I agree. I stand, with, for, beside Jaybird.

Egads: I agree. I stand, with, for, beside Jaybird.

Life: I agree. I stand, with, for, beside Jaybird.

The Host: I agree. I stand, with, for, beside Jaybird.

The Father: I agree. I stand, with, for, beside Jaybird.

Jesus: I agree. I stand, with, for, beside Jaybird.

*Finding herself in need, Cassandra stood with Jaybird *

Me: Forgive me, Jaybird. Fly. Lift your voice. You inspire me. Perhaps just this one, me, is enough. You have helped Dad to change my life. The best of me, resides in YOU.

You are my:

Hope.

Joy.

Laughter.

You make me:

Optimistic.

Determined.

Relentless.

I’m sorry.

Jaybird: Don’t you I love you, no matter what, no matter why, no matter who? You just need to RECEIVE Dad’s Healing. You don’t think you deserve it.

Me: How can I ask Dad to heal all the damage done, by my own hands in not trusting Him, Life, Yikes, Egads and the rest sooner?

Jaybird: Beloved, all of that was finished, answered, resolved right over there?

*Looking over her shoulder, Cassandra took one look, dropped to her knees, and began to weep*

Me: Forgive me.

Jaybird: Done, done, and done. Rise. For, you ARE loved. Your life was worth The Death of a King!

The Father: Done, done, and done. Rise. For, you ARE loved. Your life was worth The Death of a King!

King Jesus: Done, done, and done. Rise. For, you ARE loved. Your life was worth The Death of a King! You are Mine. Stand, with Me. Stand, with Jaybird. She flies beside Me. I rejoice, seeing her, knowing she brings, You. I love You. Can’t wait for your next Dance Party. Sarah said to tell you to watch out for the lamps.

Yikes!: Folks, Cassandra can’t talk, right now. She said, tell to:

Release, your Jaybird.

Receive, your Jaybird.

Name, your Jaybird.

Claim, your Jaybird.

Jaybird: Dad created, you. ALL, of you. Fear not. Do you. Especially, the parts you are afraid to show. Those, the world needs the most. We got this. Dad, has us all.

How much more: Loved, protected, cherished can we be?

His and yours,

Jaybird ALWAYS

Jaybird turned to walk away and was astounded by what she could see:

Cassandra had returned and had countless others, Jaybirds, with her. She released them, released herself, and they ALL flew, free, unbroken, joyful, loved. Beautiful. There were millions, billions, of free people. God’s Doves. Fly, Jaybirds. Fly…
