She asked me to bring a lemon tree over. I carried the lemon tree to give to her as if it were an olive branch.
It wasnt fromme, but I felt a part of its journey,
The kitchen was large and the countertops clearn. So shiny and new.
Inviting me in, eyes filled with wonder.
Carefully I plaved the gift on the counter nearest to me.
She smiled and asked, "What is that for?"
I politely smiled hello, and handed her a card.
It read: "Erma Bomback said that life is a bowl of cherries and if that is the case, then many believe it is the pits, but truth is life is like a lemon tree- Filled with Hope, dreams, and beauty for those willing to see. May you see the sweetness of lemonade as you watch this lemon tree grow."
The sunlight came through the window and illuminated a branch. It's leaf held a bud which would one day bloom to grow into the fruit that norishes more than just the soul.
She hugged me goodbye, and I began to cry.
Being the messenger is more than a job. It's a gift when the message is recieved.
The gift of the lemon tree has so much signaficance to see.

There is a key that so many search for as if it has been hidden only for them to spend their life searching. But the reality is the key is there for everyone..only a few use it.
There is a door that so many see and wish for the key to unlock it, however in searching for the key, they forget to try the handle or just simply knock. If only they knock, it will open.
There is a window in the door that allows the light through for all to see. Some ignore the view, others put up a shade, and still others just peek with curiosity seeing what could be theirs if they open the door and venture in.
What holds some back?
What caused the freeze, the hesisitation, the lack of motivation?
All they have to do is use the key they have always had.
and when forgets they have a key, one is always provided...just knock and be welcomed.
But they don't.
They pause too long over their fears.
There is a light that shines through.
Touching the heart.
Telling us to move forward.
And even with reassurance from the Heart, there is doubt.
Have No Doubt...this Door is for you.
Come in and you will see it has always been an open door. It will always be an open door.
The key lives within you.
The door is your fear.
The light is the gift that awaits you.
Take it in, let out what isn't for you. You will know. For the window is the key and you need not break glass to get in.
This is not a drill.
This is not a test.
This is not an emergency.
This is the Okna.
The Okna awaits to share some light for those most in need of God's mercy.
(This light...this light through the door's window is called the Okna. The window is the key.)
