Goin Back ta Brooklyn

I flew back East this morning to visit family. My flight from Pasco, WA to Salt Lake City was uneventful. Salt Lake to JFK was another story. Long flight made longer by weather problems, but I arrived safely none the worse for wear. I took a cab from JFK to my father’s house in Marine Park. It’s been a long time since I rode on the Belt or down Flatbush past Kings Plaza. Each image sparked a childhood memory.

It’s fun to be back in the house I grew up in, so many happy memories and fun stories. My brother came by and we talked and laughed the night away. I’ll be here until Friday morning. Over the next few days I’ll get to spend time with the whole family. It’s been a very long time since my dad had all four of his kids together in one place. Tomorrow will be a day for special pictures.

Before I left, I had a sense that God was sending me on this trip. I suspect I have some type of divine assignment while I’m here. I have a strong sense that God will reveal something significant to me while I’m in the land of my fathers..

I’m stunned to have between 100 – 200 hits a day on this site. Would all the Emancipation of the Freed readers out there please remember me in pray this week? I don’t want to miss this spiritual assignment and I want to hear what the Lord has to say. I believe it is going to be important. I wonder, could it be that I have been brought back to the land of my fathers so that THE FATHER may speak to me? Yeah, it could be just that.

Yo Gad, It’s me, I’m in Brooklyn – yous talkin ta me?
