What happened when Jesus rose from the dead …

happy-easter

Weeping broke the early morning silence.  It was the first day of the week.  While the world woke up, an uncomprehending woman cried her heart out beside a tomb. 

It was a world stricken with death.  It came to them all, sooner or later.  But this was a day unlike any other.  Resurrected feet trod the earth.

“Woman, why are you crying? Who do you seek?” the King asked, approaching her.

Standing at the empty tomb, Mary Magdalene didn’t recognise him.  With the light and the tears blinding her eyes, she cried “They’ve taken away my Lord, and I don’t know where they’ve laid him. If you have taken him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”

Mary,” the King said.

“Teacher!” she cried in recognition, turning to him.

The risen Lord had been in the belly of the earth for three days and nights, even preaching to those who’d perished in the flood of Noah.  Now, he had returned from death.  (1 Peter 3:19)

He said, “Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father, but go to my brethren, and say to them, I ascend to my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and your God.” (John 20)

Obeying him, Mary, Joanna and Mary the mother of James went and told the disciples the Lord had risen, but they were not believed.

Ascending to his Kingdom, the King was greeted with songs, shouts, and cries of joy.  Walking across the sapphire pavement, the resurrected Son of God approached the throne of his Father, the keys of Death and Hell in his hands. The gates of Hell had not prevailed against him.

All of Heaven rejoiced.  The eyes of the creatures hailed their creator as the angels formed a rank of honour.  All bowed down as he passed.

A throne awaited him.

But first, before mounting the stairs to take his place at the right hand of the Father, the Son of God presented himself as the first of the harvest.

Looking ahead to the harvest of mankind that awaited, the angels sang for joy. The creatures added their voice, “Hail to the First-fruits of the earth.”

All of Heaven rose to their feet as the Father rose from his throne, accepting the sinless offering of the earth.

The Son of Man would serve as the High Priest of the New Covenant in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not by a mere human being.

The sanctuary built by Moses was a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. This is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: “See to it that you make everything according to the pattern shown you on the mountain. (Hebrews 8)

The only man-made thing in this place were the scars on the King’s body.

Now all of Heaven would await the arrival of the Church of the Firstborn.

And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. Colossians 1:18

The view from the wall

habakkuk-2-1I will stand my watch
And set myself on the rampart,
And watch to see what He will say to me,
And what I will answer when I am corrected. Habakkuk 2:1

In November 2016 another great earthquake struck the land, during a supermoon. It happened in the area of north Canterbury – with aftershocks in Seddon. This one was different though, as the scientists had never seen anything like it. Two huge earthquakes had happened simultaneously. Two earthquakes, that lasted two minutes, with two people dead, affecting two islands (the North and South Island) – and the land underwent a two metre shift south of Marlborough.

Wellington was struck along with Kaikoura. Parliamentary Service released CCTV footage from the Speaker’s corridor, showing portraits of previous Prime Ministers swaying and banging against the walls.

Strange lights flashed across the horizon in Wellington while the earth shook. The eerie lights were an extremely rare occurrence. After the earthquake, a huge storm struck the Wellington area.

I noted the strange signs, and the pattern of twos.

“Lord, I see the signs. “I know we are in a fault zone – but why is the land shaking so violently lately? What do want to say?” I asked.

The King replied, “Under three things the earth trembles, under four it cannot bear up:
a servant who becomes king, a godless fool who gets plenty to eat, a contemptible woman who gets
married, and a servant who displaces her mistress.” Proverbs 30:21-23 (NIV)

“Can you please explain the verse?” I asked.

“The context is about godless servants who have stepped outside of their delegated authority. These stewards are selling land that is not theirs to sell, and they are behaving in a contemptible manner.”

“The earth indeed trembles. Under what will it not bear up?” I asked.

“You will see. I have given you the context. Now write what I show you,” the King advised.

I saw myself on a castle wall. I was there with the watchers, scanning the land with binoculars. But it was dark.

The day before the earthquake in November 2016, a self-appointed bishop lifted his voice; “The earth convulses under the weight of certain human sin. And it says it spews itself up after a while. That’s natural disasters. ‘Cause nature was never created to carry the bondage of our iniquity. And so you get earthquakes. Take note because you’ll forget it out the door. But next year if this happens you’ll know why.”

Pointing to the ruined church in the distance, he said “See, massive earthquakes have already hit in Christchurch and you could have just about predicted that one.”

When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” I muttered from Psalm 11:3, ignoring the self-appointed bishop.

I went to the control tower and called the King. “We need to hear from you – not him!” I said.

“Go back to the wall, and switch to infra-red,” the King said. Grabbing the infra-red binoculars, I looked out over the land.

The gates of my country were wide open. Foreigners from the most populous place in the world were streaming in to buy the land. They were being freely admitted at the gates, after waving great wads of cash at the government. The children of the land are being displaced by them.

Cries of protest are being met with accusations of racism.

Globalists had put a name over the gates, and it was called “TRADE.”

“Trade?” I asked.

“Free trade is good trade!” I heard the globalists tell our little country of 4 million.

“The NZ-China free trade agreement started this. It didn’t put restrictions on house sales to overseas buyers,” the King explained.

“It’s not free,” He added. “New Zealanders are suffering because the wealthy 1 per cent from other countries buying the houses are driving up prices to levels they can’t afford. Because 1 per cent of China is over 10 million people, it’s the most obvious example. This is also destabilising your economy.”

“So it’s not about the earth convulsing under the weight of sin?” I asked.

“No. I am trying to warn you that Babylon is rising. It’s a Luciferian world government. His ministers are getting rich through trade. Look at the King of Tyre in Ezekiel 28;

By his wisdom and understanding he gained wealth for himself and amassed gold and silver in his treasuries. By his great skill in trading he increased his wealth, and because of his wealth his heart grew proud.

Lucifer, the ordained guardian in Eden, was and is the real power behind trade. This is what I said about Lucifer, “Through his widespread trade he was filled with violence, and he sinned.” Read it in Ezekiel 28. It’s the same spirit behind globalism, behind trade.

nzquakekaikoura-jpgYour laws are being changed, and your land is being destroyed by globalism. Keep watch, because you need to explain what is happening.

When you sing the words to your national anthem, I hear. I take it seriously, even when your country sings it just as a song.  The fight is sneaky, and insidious – and it’s not just about trade.  The family, the building block of the nation and its culture is also under attack.

Ben Carson, an American leader, warned “If you look at the writings of the neo Marxists, when they talk about the new world order, there were two fundamental things in their way – the Judeo Christian faith, and their strong families. Those were the things that had to be attacked. There’s a book published in 1958 called The Naked Communist by Cleon Skousen, which lays out the whole agenda. This stuff is not secret, you can read about it – in Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for radicals.  It’s a quick easy read, you can see all the things that are happening today.”

“Come with me,” the King said. I went from the castle wall to a dormitory. A series of rooms led off the main corridor. I entered the long corridor at room 2010.

Room 2010

sleeping-churchWalking into the room, I saw that everyone was asleep. I could hear cicadas outside – and snoring. Even the guards of the land were sleeping. In September, the King shook the sleeping people gently. “Wake up!” he said.

Room 2011

The name of the room was ‘Christchurch.’ It was February 2011. I saw globalist Julia Gillard, the unelected leader from Australia give an address to the New Zealand parliament. She was the first foreign leader ever to do so – and she did not have the authority to say what she was saying, as she’d deposed the governor of her own land.

Gillard was praising neo-liberal economics, trade liberalisation and free trade agreements.

Looking into the future, she extolled the Trans Pacific Partnership, of which New Zealand had been a founding partner since 2005. “I was proud to stand with Prime Minister Key, President Obama and our seven other partners in November last year… pledging to the make the expanded Partnership a reality by the time of APEC this year. The Partnership could be a stepping stone to an Asia Pacific Free Trade Area. If we achieve that, we will create a free trade community as significant as the EU or NAFTA. A zone of trade, investment, jobs as big as the Pacific itself.”

“Wake up!” the King said six days later, as the land shook violently in Christchurch. The Cathedral was destroyed, and 185 people died.

Room 2013

seddon-and-beehiveThe name of room 2013 was ‘Seddon.’ Richard Seddon had been the nation’s longest-serving prime minister. There was a prominent statue of him outside Parliament Buildings. Seddon had come to represent the authority of the state in New Zealand.

The parliament had just made marriage between homosexuals law, even though there was no mandate for it or referendum about it. In the time it was being passed into law, the land suffered the worst drought in seventy years.

I watched a member of the parliament mock the Church, and quote the Bible at them. “Don’t make this into a big deal,” he sneered; “Life will go on …”

“One of the messages that I had was that this bill was the cause of our drought. Well in the Pakuranga electorate this morning it was pouring with rain. We had the most enormous gay rainbow across my electorate …”

In May 2014 of the following year, the traitor would be unceremoniously sacked from Cabinet following revelations he’d approached police seeking information into a criminal case being taken against Donghua Liu, a corrupt Chinese businessman and National Party donor.

But in the meantime, he had the floor.

He stopped while the parliament laughed. “It has to be a sign, sir, it has to be a sign. If you are a believer it certainly is a sign. Can I finish for all those who are concerned about this with a quote from the Bible; Deuteronomy 1:29, Be ye not afraid.”

He did not see that the context of the passage he’d quoted from was about rebellion against the King.

“Be afraid!” the King retorted, and indeed, there was a sign. Three days before homosexual marriage became legal, there was another earthquake, this time in Seddon.

No-one noticed the authority of the state in New Zealand being shaken.

Room 2014

eketahuna-nzThe name of this room was Eketahuna, It is considered by some to be the stereotypical rural New Zealand town, a place occasionally used in conversation to represent “the real New Zealand.” It was marked by a giant Kiwi.

On Wellington Anniversary Day, the 20th January 2014, the land shook at Eketahuna.

During the earthquake, one of two giant eagles installed at Wellington airport to commemorate the film the Hobbit swung wildly from side to side, crashing to the ground at the gate into the land.

He said to those on the walls, “Put the trumpet to your lips! An eagle is over the house of the LORD because the people have broken my covenant and rebelled against my law.” Hosea 8:1

No-one noticed the King trying to shake real, rural New Zealand awake. Meanwhile, the first big debate about foreign land sales took place, when the Crafar Farms were sold to a Chinese investor.

Two years passed. So much land had been sold that the children of the land could no longer afford to buy a house in Auckland, the land’s largest city. I saw something I’d never seen before, people forced to live in cars while more than 30,000 houses owned by foreign investors sat empty.

Room 2016

The name of this room was ‘Apec,’ which stands for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. In the face of an increasing rise in anti-globalisation sentiment, Bollard, the former globalist governor of New Zealand’s central bank said Apec would achieve the globalist’s aims in incremental steps.

On the 14th November 2016 globalist John Kerry, the American Secretary of State, met globalist prime minister John Key at Wellington. They were worried about the TPPA – the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement not going ahead, because Trump, the new President Elect of America intended to stop it.

The people of the land did not know that the TPPA was even worse than Apec, because the non-discrimination provisions of the TPPA would prevent the Government banning TPP nationals from buying property in New Zealand.

After the meeting, John Key prepared to fly to Apec in Peru. Until he was stopped by the latest earthquake.

“Lord, what did you mean by the pattern of ‘two’s’ in this latest earthquake?” I asked.

“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” He asked by way of reply, before showing me a lion roaring, an eagle swooping, a trap springing from the ground, and a trumpet sounding in a city.

Does a lion roar in the thicket when it has no prey?
Does it growl in its den when it has caught nothing?
Does a bird swoop down to a trap on the ground when no bait is there?
Does a trap spring up from the ground if it has not caught anything?
When a trumpet sounds in a city, do not the people tremble?
When disaster comes to a city, has not the LORD caused it?
Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.”
Amos 3:3-7

“What do you want us to do?” I asked.

“Keep watch. You are watching the heads of the beast appear” the King replied. “The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.” 1 Peter 4:7

Serve for my glory, for light casts no shadow.

Submit to the government, and love your neighbour, as you put on the armour of light. And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here.

So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh. Romans 13.

christchurch-cathedral-before-and-after

Standing in front of the ruined cathedral from 2011, the King spoke out of the book of Haggai.

He asked, “Do you remember this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing?”

This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty. ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” Haggai 2.

The road few find

Kaukatea Valley Rd 1978 resized
The road I grew up on was a difficult road that few bothered to travel without good reason. Our nearest neighbours were a mile away, so we could be as noisy as we liked. 

‘Mount Zion,’ the sheep station at the end of our road straddled two valleys – ours and Longacre, and part of it bordered our farm. Mount Zion could be accessed from a paper road which connected with our road – but you had to know where it was.  I used to ride there to get horses shod.

I learned to drive on that road and it was difficult, handling a motorbike on the gravel.

Poplars that had grown from fence battens the original farmers used lined the road. Number eight wire was used with the fence battens.  There were lots of interesting places along the road – even a cave, which is included in the video clip below.

This is the actual road, filmed by a motorcyclist.

So that’s my narrow road in the natural.  There’s another road, and another Zion.  Named as “the King’s holy mountain and the place where God dwells with man,” Mount Zion is referenced in the Bible at least 52 times.

The Bible points to the narrow road which leads to Zion.  Jesus said on the mountain, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”  Matthew 7:13-14

In my thirties I wandered off, got lost and found myself on the wrong road.  I couldn’t find a lot of help when I wanted to get off that road.  After two unsuccessful attempts at counseling I gave up and turned to the pages of the Bible, because one of the King’s names is “Wonderful Counselor.”

This is his promise; “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”  Psalm 32:8

I had to get some help from somewhere.  So I went to the King for counseling.  It was the best thing I ever did.

In New Zealand we’ve had to be resourceful because of the difficulty sourcing stuff, being at the ends of the earth as we are.  We are known to “fix things with number eight wire.”  Using inventive number eight wire mentality, and thinking outside the box, I built a world I could go into and hear from the King, who counseled me on the way I should go.  I wrote down His words in my story.

As for the setting, God knew I’d write it into a book later on in life.  My book is a paper road that leads to Zion.  It’s for those who want a good, unconventional read from a traveler, a stranger, a sojourner on the road not well-traveled.  I promise you that you’ll never read another story like it.

Having ears to hear

When Jesus wanted to communicate truth, he used stories and said it was “for those who had ears.”  How many of us are deaf to God because of unbelief?  It shuts us down because we can’t believe God would want to have a real conversation with us.  And when we do, we don’t always hear in the same manner – or we doubt what we’re hearing.  We’ll trot out our objections with “Yes, but …”

We have to test the spirits.  Because Lucifer can pretend to be an angel of light.  He is completely deceptive.  Don’t go near him.

My spiritual hearing wasn’t that great.  That’s why I constructed my story, so I could keep a record of the things that God told me and check it against the Bible.  God became the main character in “The Kingdom” through me doing that!

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAMy husband hears God’s voice differently from me and wants to hear from him better.  He’s a bit goofy at times, as you can see with these ‘ears.’

We spend our day solving technical problems on computers and computer networks.  He has to think on his feet.  Sometimes he arrives at an answer so quickly I go “How did you get that?

He doesn’t know whether his decision speed is from his thought processes or God’s voice.

Early one morning he was thinking about the day ahead. “God, the other day I asked you about my decision speed getting in the way.  Is it my thought processes, or is it you?  I never heard an answer.  So what is it?” he asked.

John 3″ was the instantaneous reply.  In John 3, Jesus was explaining to a religious ruler what people have to do to see the Kingdom of God.  The verses that spoke the most to my husband were 3:8 and 3:29.

“8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

The same month I watched kite surfers on the beach at the end of my street, as they were borne along by invisible wind currents.  It was on a hot Sunday afternoon a couple of weeks ago.  I didn’t even notice the breeze but they were finding it offshore.  It was a beautiful sight to see them glide across the water.

So it is with us when we are born of the Spirit and are able to hear God, the Holy Spirit’s voice.  When we realise we can hear him, we can actually hear God, it brings joy – and hope.  Our morale and spirits soar.

If we hope in the LORD we will renew our strength. We will soar on wings like eagles; we will run and not grow weary, we will walk and not be faint. 
That’s a promise from Isaiah 40:31.

The master’s voice

The other verse that spoke to my husband, verse 29, was where John the Baptist, the cousin of Jesus exalts the King.  John is comparing himself as the best man at Christ’s wedding.  29″ The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete.”

I can’t find a picture for that – but look at the joy this dog is showing to hear his master’s voice.  It sums it up for me.

My first book review

The Bookworm, Carl Spitzweg

The Bookworm, Carl Spitzweg

Try and imagine bookshelves lined with millions of books – and my book is just one of them.  And the bookshelves keep growing.  My book has gone from one in a million to probably one in two million by now!

I’ve probably got the worst person possible in charge of book promotion – me.  Marketing was my worst subject when I was doing the Dip of Business, unfortunately.  But I did learn about the five ‘P’s of marketing; People, Price, Placement, Product and Promotion.

It’s a struggle.  Who do I tell about the book?  Christians obviously, but I hope to get it to the New Age market.  I know they would love the King in my book if they read about Him.  As for the product – the book is in a genre all by itself.  I struggle to even describe it’s genre.  I said it’s a cross between a memoir and a fantasy novel, but my first book reviewer said it’s actually an Epic Journal. My book is unique; one in a million – and not just because of it’s place in Amazon. For placement, I’ve gone to where the readers are.

In order for me to promote the book, I need praise.  I mean, I can praise it – but I’m the author!  Today I got some much needed praise.  I joined Goodreads, and I’ve received my first book review from Valicity Garris, author of Cross Academy.

It was brilliant, five star review.  It’s helped me to keep going with my efforts to get the book out to the wider world.  So it’s made my day.  Come and read my first review, and celebrate with me.

Here’s the review:
https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1523617863?book_show_action=false

One in a million

The inspiration for my book “The Kingdom, Here Be Dragons, Here Be Dreams” came from Psalm 45 – which speaks of a King who is the most attractive man on the planet; “fairer than the sons of men.”  In the world his appearance was rather ordinary.  The prophet Isaiah wrote of Jesus 700 years before His birth saying “He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him.  He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.  Isaiah 53:2-3. 

To start with, I admit I too saw him like that.  As I began to know him from the Bible and from experience, I got to see him as beyond handsome – wise, witty, subtle and gentle with unimaginable power.

Here’s a screen shot of page 1 of “The Kingdom,” circa 1997.  I took a trip down memory lane and came back with a screen shot of page 1 the original story.  I’ve still got the story on the old software in DOS, which I run in DOSBox just because I can.

Now I’ve got to promote the story.  I’ve discovered that’s not going to be an easy matter!  There’s been millions of eBooks published.  My book is literally ‘one in a million.’  Sigh.

If you want to read an inspirational story where Jesus is the mighty one clothed with splendour and majesty with his sword girded on his side, this is the one.  It’s Jesus from the point of view of His Kingdom.  It’s Jesus without the religious exoskeleton.  Come and read all about him.

There are also links to Amazon if you want to buy the eBook.

I’ve made a video of the story, based on the book synopsis, which I’ve been told is awesome.

If you haven’t seen it on the book Facebook page, here it is.

The Kingdom – Here Be Dragons, Here Be Dreams

Thanks for following me, and I look forward to hearing from you.


KThe Kingdom is an inspiring story about a journey along the narrow path.  The story is in a unique genre all of it’s own, somewhere between an epic fantasy quest, supernatural adventure and memoir.  It’s a tale about good versus evil. 

If you are interested in how God can reveal Himself and speak to an ordinary person, this story is for you.

To begin with I wrote my story “The Kingdom” as a journal and map of the journey.  It kept a record of the Lord’s rhema words and revelation he gave me.  When the things he told me in the Kingdom worked out in real life I realised I was receiving the Lord’s guidance and counsel for real.
If you do not know the King, or the Bible, here’s a brief explanation of some concepts the story deals with.

spiritual-warfareRevelation

    A revelation is defined as;

  • An enlightening or astonishing disclosure,
  • The communication of knowledge to man by a divine or supernatural agency.

Revelation comes from the Holy Spirit.  Do you believe that God will speak to us in the last days?  “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”  Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:18.

DragonsSword of Spirit

We all have dragons to slay.  It is written in Revelation that they (the believers) defeated the dragon by the word of their testimony.  (Paraphrased from Revelation 12:11)

The Kingdom is my personal testimony.  The words of the King to me as Joanna are true.  It’s about how God guided me along the path, and helped me deal with my dragons.  If you are interested in spiritual warfare the story may appeal to you.

Dreams

Are you interested in dream interpretation?  In my story, I was given dreams.  The story served as a context for the dreams.  Knowing that revelation comes from the Holy Spirit, I would ask the King to explain them.    When I was writing, the King would give me a verse from the Bible that went with the dream.  The prophet Daniel told King Nebuchadnezzar after he was asked to interpret his dream that there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. (Daniel 2:28).

Life can be a mystery.  Think about coincidences for instance.  Do you notice signs that appear at just the right time?  That’s God.  He wants us to seek Him out, and find the things He has for us.

Some things in life are hidden, but God can bring the concealed things to light through the great words of the Bible and the Holy Spirit.

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.   Proverbs 25:2

The Lord will bring revelation if you seek him.  “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”  Matthew 7:7.

JesusThe King, the Holy Spirit

The King in my story is the Holy Spirit, who works as one with God and Jesus.  He is the comforter, teacher and guide of Joanna.  He is the one Jesus promised He would send after He went back to God.  Jesus explains how He was sent to us in John 14;

“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”  John 14:15-17

The final scene in my story

batonI ended “The Kingdom” with a scene where Joanna is handed a baton from Anna, her ancestor.  There is a race to be run. Sometimes we run alone, sometimes in a group.  At times the path is hard to see but there are signs.  The signs Joanna found along the path are recorded in the story.

The Kingdom story is my testimony.  It shows what I did with the words the Lord spoke to me as personal revelation.  God will speak to us all personally if we seek him through Jesus, the King.  I hope my story will inspire you to seek the King yourself.

If you would like to know more, please ask me questions.

I’ve taken a photo of one of the places where I walk.  The beach is at the bottom of my street.  The island off the beach is called “Kawau Island”.  It’s an island with no roads, where the residents get around by boat.  I’ve made a photo gallery so you can see other scenes from my story.
