ANNA’S STORY, WHAT SHE MIGHT HAVE WRITTEN IN HER JOURNAL…

I don’t go out anymore. ..venturing forth from behind these hallowed walls, I can’t remember the last time my feet led me there. But I have been content here and the years have treated me kindly but I am old now (at least that is what they tell me) left only with the precious memories of family and times gone by…these are the treasures I own…

I can hear the laughter of those I loved echoing in the evening stillness and dancing on the morning breeze. Night and day blur at their edges and mingle into one…

As natural and easy as breathing my heart travels the familiar path of worship and I am kissed by the wonder of His presence yet again…And ALL is made new. Words tumble from my mouth and it is as if they fly heavenward and touch the very ear of the One Who Hears and Answers. Food? Well let’s just say a few bites now and then suffice…

But today, TODAY, TODAY! What a day!! Throngs of people, bustling crowds and suddenly as if on their own accord my feet moved me swiftly out into their midst.

AND

THERE

BEFORE ME

THEY STOOD…

SHE SO YOUNG, SMILING, A GENTLENESS ABOUT HER

HE PROTECTIVE, AND PROUD, LOOKING  ALL AROUND WITH A WIDE SMILE ON HIS FACE, TAKING IT ALL IN…

NOTHING EXTRAORDINARY ABOUT THEM…

AND YET…

I KNEW, DEEP IN MY SPIRIT I KNEW, THE TINY ONE, THE LITTLE BOY…

HE,

HE WAS

THE VERY ONE MY HEART HAD LONGED FOR…

THE VERY ONE I KNEW ONE DAY I WOULD SEE…

WITH MY VERY OWN EYES…

UNSTOPPABLE THANKSGIVING POURED FROM MY LIPS,

I COULD NOT KEEP QUIET!

I COULD NOT STOP THIS UNCEASING FLOW…

I TURNED TO MY RIGHT AND TO MY LEFT BEFORE ME, BEHIND ME, BESIDE ME..

TO ALL WHO WOULD LISTEN AND THOSE THAT DID NOT…

‘HERE HE IS!’

I DECLARED,

‘HERE IS JESUS WHO WILL SAVE ALL MEN FROM THEIR SINS…

HE WHO HAS COME, TO BE THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD,

TO REDEEM AND DELIVER MANKIND…

LOOK UPON HIM…’

TEARS RAN DOWN MY WITHERED CHEEKS…

THE PROPHECIES OF THE YEARS FULFILLED RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME…

BEHOLD THE KING OF KINGS…

ALL IS QUIET NOW

THE CROWDS HAVE GONE HOME…

BUT, HOLINESS LINGERS TONIGHT…

FOR IN ONE MOMENT

I ANNA, DAUGHTER OF PHANUEL, OF THE TRIBE OF ASHER, SO CALLED PROPHETESS…

I SAW

JESUS….

MY

SAVIOR…..
