Ever since I moved to Missouri, I have been looking for a house to buy. On 4/20/2020 I prayed to the Lord that wherever He sent me, it would be a place with an abundance of fruit trees. Being a huge fruit lover, I simply cannot imagine anything more perfect than being able to just walk outside my house and grab a piece of organic fruit right off the tree.
The very next day after I prayed for fruit trees, the Lord gave me a vision of a small animal that looked like a monkey. I had a knowing in the spirit that the small animal I saw was a “HONEY BEAR”. End of vision.
Since the word “honey bear” did not seem to jive with the animal I saw in the vision, I decided to google the term. According to Wikipedia, a honey bear, which is also known as a kinkajou, is a tropical rain forest mammal that is tree dwelling and whose diet consists mostly of fruit. In fact their preferred diet is 90% fruit.
When I read that, I burst out laughing. Clearly the Lord had heard my prayer asking for fruit trees. Now he was showing me an animal that was a fruit lover just like me.
Then in November of 2020 the Lord gave me a vision where I was stuck in an elevator with Michael J. Fox. Now he was one of my favorite actors growing up. I remember watching him on Family Ties, where he played the outspoken conservative, Alex P. Keaton.
Well my favorite story line was the one where he met and fell in love with his TV girlfriend, played by actress, Tracy Pollan. Who doesn’t love a great love story, right? Now on the show, they eventually broke up. But in real life, they actually got married and are still married to this day, 32 years later.
Okay so back to my vision. So Michael J. Fox and I were stuck in an elevator together. He had his back to me. Suddenly he began to talk about his wife, Tracy. He said that he loved his wife so very much. Then he confided that he even had a pet name for her – “Honey Bear”. End of vision.
Wow! That vision blew me away. I knew immediately what the Lord was saying. In the vision Michael represented Jesus and Tracy represented me/bride of Christ. And the Lord was saying that He loved me so much and that his pet name for me was “Honey Bear”, because I was such a huge fruit lover. By the way, the Lord gave me that vision on my birthday. Got to say that vision was the best birthday present I have ever received bar none.
JOHN 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
SONG OF SOLOMON 2:4 “He has brought me to his banquet hall, And his banner over me is love.
ROMANS 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
ROMANS 8:38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
SONG OF SOLOMON 8:6 Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm: for love is as strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: its flames are flames of fire, a most vehement flame. 7Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the wealth of his house for love, it would utterly be rejected.

The Lord began drawing Dana to Him about six months before she was saved. By January of 2015, the urgency to make a decision about God was so strong, that it was all she could think about, but she was clueless how to even get saved. One day in her bedroom, she cried out to God telling him she really wanted to be saved, but she didn’t know how. Then she had the thought, maybe she could Google it. And that’s what she did. She found instructions on the Internet and said the Salvation prayer out loud.
In 2017 the Lord led her 600 miles away from her family, friends and home to a place she had never been and did not want to go – Missouri. Then in April of 2019 the Lord gave her a vision of a woman sitting at a desk, writing on paper. That’s when she knew He wanted her to write, but what on earth could she possibly write about? Then in July of 2020 the Lord gave her a vision of an eyebrow pencil outlining a woman’s eye. She interpreted that to mean “I OUTLINE”. And that is exactly what He did. And that’s how the Lord got her to pick up her pen.
