How Loud is your Bark or Sharp your Bite against Spiritual Warfare

Updated on September 8, 2011

How loud is your bark against the evil one?

God Dreams

Recently I have been having some colorful dreams.God is technicolor. I rarely remember my dreams if any. if I have a dream I may remember bits and pieces for a brief time when waking. Then it is just a past memory that dissolves into thin air. My first visible, visual dream I recall was Thanksgiving 2009. My husband and I were dancing with the Lord. At that time he was lets say in the wilderness. He was chained by alcohol. He knows I share some of his past and if any of 'his stuff' sheds light to help another David is grateful. David is most often the first editor in my writings and he sends his Blessings on it.

This was a very difficult time for us. I truly loved my husband and I truly deplore the disease. David a Christian had wandered from Jesus.I remained diligent in prayer. There were times I wanted to give up. God held me up in spite of the consequences it brought to the family. This is the kind of illness it is. It whips through the family like a tornado. It will try to wipe out all in it's path.

Briefly, I met David when he was sober. We both got sober in the rooms of AA. Praise God. We met, fell for each other. I was saved, David got saved. We were sober together for many happy, awesome years. I had my short comings. I am a sinner too. I used credit cards and rested on my God given Blessings and laurels. I was foolish. I am forgiven. It is done and over with. David took a drink after 13 years of sobriety. The first drink lasted four long years. I continued in prayer, for a man after Gods Heart. I wanted to walk from the relationship. I hated what was going on. Today David and I are dancing with the Lord together. He is into studying the Word of God. Some days for hours on end. He is sober and clean. He is on fire for Christ.

We are the dance in the dream, both of us swirling around with God together all holding hands. I believe God was showing me He was in control and my hearts desire was His desire. He put it there. He is the dream maker. He fulfills dreams. He is true to His word. 'Ask anything in my name according to my will and it shall be given unto you.' John 16:23

Well since then I have had a few very visual dreams. I am probably not a lone ranger here. Many people have vivid, technicolor dreams. Many interpret dreams. I do not know much about dreams other then this. When I wake from a very vivid dream, I have been led to write down notes. Last night I had a dream. It was around 3:00 AM. I came to the couch around 11PM. I could not get comfortable in my bed so I went to the couch. My lap top was opened. I had paper and pen sitting on the table from earlier that night. You may think, this is no coincidence. I believe I was to leave it as it was. I usually close up the lap top, tidy up papers then plug it into the charger, in the bedroom.

I woke and in my Spirit I hear, 'write down some notes.' After I heard the small, still voice more was revealed to me. I did not feel like writing. I was obedient. I sat up briefly, turned on the lamp grabbed a white envelope and jotted down some notes. I was in awe, but I was sleepy. I turned off the lamp. I heard the alarm in the bedroom go off at 5:30. David and I listen to Sheppard's Chapel together at 6 AM. I remembered the dream, in fact my heart was on fire. I heard the message. There is no doubt in my heart this was divine. All Glory to God!


The little female doggie with golden hair had a long, slim nose, and thick brown eyelashes around her bright, hazel eyes. She was all of 8 or 10 pounds. She had a Heart shaped doggie door to the back yard. She came and went in as she pleased. She ruled the roost at that door. Her doggie door was painted in pinks and reds on the outside of it. Anyone that came to that door could not miss her heart shaped door. She was proud of it too. No one had a door like she did. She wore a pink little collar with tiny diamonds in it. She was a little furry but was proud because she had been brushed the evening before. She gloated back and forth as to show off her pretty coat. She liked the quiet time without kids and noise. A figure came to the back door. Now she could go hide under someones bed but she was a brave little one. She would defend her home even though she wanted to go hide. The figure was a dark grey shape like a man colored in with black pencil. He was dark, tall and thin. He had a black bag of tools over his shoulder to break into the house. Well, little Pipsqueak decided no way, no how was this dark thing coming near those she loved. She barked and would back up and come running to the heart shape door stick out her head and bark again. She did this multiple times. The figure said, 'shut up, shut up now or I will rip your head off your neck, you little rat.' Pipsqueak did not care. She knew he would only try. She was not giving in to this dark shadow, no way, no how. The battle continued for ten minutes. Pipsqueak did not give in. She was tired but something inside, was pushing her and she continued in might. She had this high pitched little bark but her bite would snap and rip him a new leg. The shadow finally stood defeated. He saw a light come on. He said, 'I will be back little rat' Pipsqueak stood tall and did not give in until her master came and petted her, picked her up and said, 'it is OK pips, come in the room with us. NO one is there to hurt you.' 'Oh, only if my master knew', thought Pipsqueak.

So dark went on down the alley. Aha, he gloated, no light here, no rat dog. Along the back was a chained link fence. Shadow thought he was very smart. He took out a bone, a steak, a ball. Here comes Laggin. Laggin was around 50 pounds with a shinny, long black coat and warm brown eyes. He loved most anyone. He really loved those that had steak. He saw dark and was leary. Dark threw the bone at him and said, 'here, here nice doggy' Laggin was liking this. Then dark lurked over the fence. Laggin only looked up. He was busy enjoying the beef. Dark then tossed a big bone his way. 'Shut up lardy or the next one is poison' Laggin began to question the dark shadow while he took out the tools to get into the back door. Laggin watched and seriously wondered if he had made a mistake. Besides he was not a lardy by any shake of the stick. He was being.tricked. He thought, 'it could be too late.' Laggin had a deep growl. One growl could scare the he-be jeebies out of a critter.

Laggin was full of steak. He could barely get up. He felt poisoned he was so full. He made His way up to a standing position. He would fight for his home. He got a rush of energy and pranced to the back door. Shadow was like, 'go away lardo, go suck your bone'. One bark is all it took and Shadow almost forgot the tools because his knees trembled so much. He almost melted from the deep bark and then fizzled into the night air once the security light came on in the back yard. He was gone. He knew he was defeated on this attempt. Laggin buried the bone to remember. He would remember dark and this would not happen again!

Queenie knew she was it. Hey she messed with no one, no how. She was black and brown with a soft shinny, smoothe coat of fur. Her strong legs dominated her firm body. She loved everyone, unless she sensed evil in them. She was always prepared. She new there were shadows and they were not good. THere were times she was told to hush up not to bother with her noise. She knew though and she would do what it took to protect her own. Dark was determined to wipe out a household and spotted one on the corner with a dim light on in the corner of the room. 'No sweat off my brow,' gleemed dark'

Little did dark know who he was messing with. The tall, thin, dark figure pryed open the window. No sooner did his foot make it in and a roar like a lion came from Queenies mouth, her sharp white teeth glowed in the night. On came the lights everywhere in the house. Shadow melted from the light. He dissipated into thin air. The masters told Queenie to hold it down.' What is the problem Quennie?' You scared the socks from our feet. Go back to sleep now' Queenie knew and was proud. 'No way and no how,' she thought is anyone coming to rob my house of it's joy and peace.

So let me ask you a question? Which doggie are you? There is an enemy out there in the real world. He is not some dressed up figure. There is dark and light. If the dark comes to you what are you going to do? I am not into giving the enemy any PR. This is not enemy PR. He has been defeated on the cross at Calvary. He is doomed to the hell of fire. Jesus took our sin, sickness, illness, oppression and depression on the cross, for His Children. If you are a Child of God you are saved, born again. You are made new in Christ Jesus. You have asked Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Savior of your life and repented of sin. You are forgiven. We the Children of the most High God have God given powers over the enemy. There will be attacks. Remember this, 'The Light' always puts out the dark.

God told us there would be spiritual warfare. The news is this we have a helper, friend and comforter in Jesus Christ. Nehemiah was commissioned to rebuild the wall at Jerusalem. He became weary and stepped back. He refreshed and came back to the wall to complete his work commissioned to him. You know what prompted Nehemiah? God the father. 'Our God will fight for us.' Nehemiah 4:21.

SO when the going gets tough, do not let it get you. You will be all right. With Jesus we are promised. 'He will never leave nor forsake us.' Deutromnominy 31: 5-7. Be on the watch Children of God. The enemy tries to lure his way in the closer you get to the Lord Jesus Christ. The good news is this. NO matter the attack. We have the tools of Jesus Christ the Risen Savior to ward off the enemies in our lives. The Name of Jesus Christ. The name that is above all names.

If you need a Bible in your life please email me via hubpages. ( upper right corner) I will graciously send you one at no charge. In His Name.

      Powerful message my friend. I am a spiritual being having a human experience, and as such I am prone to weakness at times, but I want to believe I have not lost sight of the true reward, which comes after life. Carry on the fight my friend; you speak words that need to be heard.

      Skye never nerver ever have any doubts as this will stop everything coming from our Lord., I learnt this a very long time ago never doubt, since I stopped doubting all things are coming my way now.

      So I try to encourage others to stop doubting , all we ever need to do is to believe in the Word that was spoken by our Lord, He did speak the TRUTH, what He said did and is still happening, so why doubt, just look what our Lord is doing for me now, He opens up doors I never ever thought could ever happen.

      I now go visiting others around the world just to help them in some way, and now I'm able to help them thru prayer. I give my Lord all the praise for all He gives to me, every one also can have what He gives to me, this is His promise to us.

      God loves all

      Raymond Tremain Brother I am Blessed to hear from you!!I thought of you often and lifted you in prayer. You impacted my life by the Loving Spirit of God that resides in you. The story well I did not like it so I started over. I will get it published soon. You will be the first to know OK. It will be a treasure to Behold All Glory to God.

      God answered my prayer for a steady income only days after I saw you. He is full of suprise and wonder. I about fell off my chair in delight. So i pray to not doubt again in Gods Promises for His Children. That is another story but I am so excited and soaring in HIS Glory. The surprise has changed my life because it is income going into my account each month. I am living in the Blessing. Glory To the God, King of Kings and Praise to His Name Jesus Christ above all others.

      Be in touch brother. You are the best brother. Thank you for coming over to visit. Sending a hug to my Aussie bro. Love ya In Christ Jesus.

      skye not sure where that hub you said you were going to write.

      I still remember the time that was spent in your company in Denver. yes it was great I've told many about your church how up lifting it was to be there sharing in the service.

      sorry one pic. did not come out, but the other one did I'll send it to you, I have so many pic's to sort out,all good,(1500)

      Praise God for the meeting, hope to be back in 2013, everyone I met asked me to return.

      God has opened so many doors for me this is one verse I hold close, Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord,plans to prosper you and not to harm you,plans to give you hope and a future."

      God bless you skye

      Jason R. Manning Thank You for a heartfelt comment it truly put a smile on my heart. I look forward to some of your reads! Keep on and keep on Phil 4:13 In Christ.

      Hug to you and yours.

      knightheart The Holy Spirit did not leave. He is there. Sometimes we have to go trials to grow in Christ. God knows we forget we are not perfect. I can share with someone too and the next minute do opposite. It gets easier as we get from the babies milk to the heart of God. You my bro desire to grow and be that pit bull for Christ. You keep on and you will Phil 4:13 The enemy tries the darts the closer we get to Christ but he has been defeated already. So lighten up on yourself knightheart and keep handing the fresh water to others. You are a pit bull for Christ stand on the rock you had a little slip. This is two weeks later and my guess is today you have moved on and got though this storm and are stronger for the next one that needs to hear the Glory in Christ Jesus. God will never leave nor forsake us. I am little pipsqueek I can bark it out but run off like a scared rabbit. I come back fighting and you do to!!!! We are Victors in Christ The KINGDOM Wins. We know who wins the battle. In Christ love you brother..

      Sadly to say, my bite is like a toothless dog and my bark, a dog with laryngitis. LOL Sounds funny, but it isn't. I have dropped the Armor of God so many times lately, making myself an easy target for Satan's fiery darts. Just last week, I was teaching my 5-10 year old class on this very topic. I told them it is not enough to have the Armor of God on you, but you have to use it. If you don't use it, it will do little to protect you and enable you to fight back.

      Goodness Skye, I didn't even learn from my own lesson!! I dropped the shield of Faith and exposed my whole being to that attacks. The Sword of the Spirit hung uselessly at my side, not moving an inch to attack Satan. The Bible's sharp words were not uttered from my mouth, commanding Satan to flee in the name of our Lord, Jesus. Essentially, I just surrendered without a struggle..just like Satan wanted.

      Well, with His strength, I will find the Holy Spirit within me and let Him free so I can be of fire for Christ again. Thanks for your hubs and your support. God bless you, Skye! I want to be a pitbull for God, and take a big chunk of Satan's hide with my jaws!

      And through the power of LOVE we can come against all that is not of God, and as Jesus is the winner we come along side of Him to be with Him as we go thro many battles, and knowing that we will not be alone.

      "Jesus called them (the 12 apostles) to him and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. It will not be so among you; but whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be your slave; just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many."

      There is definitely spiritual warfare and most "Christians" don't even recognize it. Most Christians really do not know politics. Voting blocs for one party- no. Spirituality does not have a political party. God bless Skye.

      Raymond Tremain They are wrong, because all the believers would be 'violating' the hub terms. NO way Raymond. You keep writing all the more. The enemy is evil and a liar. Stomp him outa here. In the Name of Jesus Christ. You write for the Cause of Christ as do I Amen. Not to worry. DO not be angry because you to know it hurts us more to be angry then the one throwing the stones. Let us pray for this person. Perhaps they are spiritually sick? Ever think of that?? I have been getting thees filthy comments from a a James Tremain. NOT YOU I answered one he called me a harlot. No big deal God has me Covered. I am A CHILD OF GOD as are you. The rest of his comments I delete and spam. They are dirt and belittle Christ and myself. SO maybe delete their comment. You are not in a violation. Where? No way. Hey look forward to June 12 We will take you to church, Do you prefer a little more punch church with holy spirit moving around awesome or a bit more laid back church? I think we should go the the Holy Spirit hovering everywhere church. Plus I think it is closer to your area.

      God Bless you Raymond remember Christ says let vengeance be mine. He will watch for you. Hugs galore.

      Skye,my dear friend,what you have written above it shows that you are getting closer to God, as you said you have had downs but the ups are comiing better now, this is what I find in my own life, as I said to another in another site is that my father was a preacher, my mom's father was a preacher, and I've been brought up in a strong christian family, and I can go back hundreds of years in my family and the men folk were mostly all preachers I guess that the way I am now is all from my family back ground, many say they have dowers but I don't get them not the way others do, if at all, I just feel that my life has been really blessed, as it seems that when I pray for others they get the benifit, what I write many receive great blessings, the other day some one wrote me and said they had tears from reading one of my poems.

      I know that well I am a walking miracle from all the healings God has given to me from the ops I've had, I don't get sick. I'm not boasting ,but I'm boasting for what Jesus has done for me as He gets all the glory.

      I know that I'm here for a reason I now write in 6 sites and people from those sites have been blessed,they tell me, but Jesus gets all the glory not me.

      I'm so happy that David is on fire praise God.

      All the prayer has been answered.

      It will be great in meeting up with you all in June.

      God loves you

      Awe ~ what an EXCELLENT description of how barking at Dark is due to loving and protecting our spiritual homes and those who may fall victim to the Predator. I think of that beautiful doggie door and how the predator certainly was too big to go through it. I think of SIN and how it makes our doggie 'doors' bigger and bigger until Dark can crawl right in. May we be watchmen of our doors and have courage to bark at the Dark. Resist [anthistémi - I set against; I withstand, resist, oppose] the enemy and he shall flee! (James 4:7) Praise God! Loved this very much!!!

      Raymond Tremain Hello Brother. Blessings Galore. My Bro I was not down when I wrote this. It was a dream. I was led to write inspired by the Holy Spirit. The first dream I ever had that was visual and I remeber as if it were yesterday was when I was going through trial and tribulation during Davids 'absense' I was not down I was so grateful He was getting Help and God gave me time to grow in HIm with no distraction of drinking and the heartache it brings. God showed me in the dream that the three of us were dancing together, laughing. God is in charge and is for me not against me. All was for His Good and Glory. David is on fire for Christ and has had a heart change by the way. He knows what He must do to keep spiritually fit. Stay in the Word and Gods Promise.

      The dogie dream I was given was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write for others and myself as well to be on guard for the enemy. The enemy is a liar and sneaky and deceives. The dogies all stood up to the evil one lurking. Pips and laggin were a bit slower but they stood their ground. Queenie is always on guard. SO you must be the queenie dog. It was written in Love not fear or doubt but joy that we have the God given power over the evil one. It was not to give any PR to the enemy. I have no fear today, God has lifted that probably because in taking action and by hearing and standing on HIS world I know His promises.God does not change. 'Let your heart not be troubled' The closer I grow in Gods love the enemy tries attacks but 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me' 'He will never Leave nor Forsake us' The enemy is doomed to Hell and knows it. He is trying to push harder we have much work to do. It is not always easy, but God did not promise easy. He promised He would always take care of His Kids. Oh what a promise and love we have IN IAM, the 'King of Kings' SO this hub was written to encourage others when and if the dark tries to come near. God gave me the dream in vivid Technicolor.

      I am pips dogie but working on being Queenie. Pips got the job done. The Enemy cant come near me. I have joy today but it has not been without trials and tribulations. This is how we grow in Christs love. Working for Christ is not always easy because there is many that are lost. I have compassion for those that struggle and it hurts my heart. I know what that was like. Thank you for the prayers. I am in peace and joy and I am on fire for the Savior who came so we could have life with Him and live more abundant.

      I love ya brother, you are a special friend. The message was if you lag a bit then stand up and fight. The enemy is defeated already. If you feel a bit low still stand up, feelings pass but God word is the same. Hugs Galore brother. Let me know what day you will be in town as it gets closer. Love and Peace In HIM. All Glory to God( - ;

      Skye I wonder why I don't get these feelings of being down, is my Jesus ready to keep me up so I can help others to come back up? all and every day I'm in a happy mood, nothing seems to pull me down, is it that I'm always thinking about Jesus, am I a lifterer upper sort of person (not sure if thats how you say it)

      anyways Skye you are always in my prayers.

      "Lord just give to skye this feeling that she has GONE thro that feeling of being down, now she will have the feeling of being on top of that situation, I ask that your hand Lord will be supporting her and David as they go thro each day, I ask this in your name Jesus, Amen."

      Daniel 6;26,27, He is the living God........

      His power and his kingdom will never end............

      He rescues people and sets them free........

      God loves you

      Skye, What a beaufiful refreshing and inspiring hub! You truly have a warm compassionate expressive writing gift with the pen! I think your technicolor dreams represents a glimpse into all the great things the Lord has in store for you and David!

      I like to think that my spiritual warfare bark is like Queenie... Yet realizing there is always room for improvement! Like you so wonderfullly stated; "There is dark and light. If the dark comes to you what are you going to do? I am not into giving the enemy any PR. This is not enemy PR. He has been defeated on the cross at Calvary. He is doomed to the hell of fire. Jesus took our sin, sickness, illness, oppression and depression on the cross, for His Children." Amen! & AMEN!! Love & Hugs continue to let the Light of the Lord to shine through my sister!

      Thank you as always for sharing your marvelous gift! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

      One of your lines that just tickles my funny bone, and I will use it myself: "I'm not giving the enemy any pr." Indeed, HE LOST!

      Be blessed and flourish like the palm tree!

      judicastro Hello sister. It is always a Blessing to hear from you. In hindsight I look back and realize many errors and how God has turned things for the good. In the storms it is so easy for 'the world' to walk. Then I think rebound comes back and back again until the chain is broken. God can break chains. If He is first place nothing is impossible. It ain't always easy girl. Knowing Christ puts everything in a Spiritual Light. He is the answer, hey? I am so grateful you hung in there and have the victory in Christ. You have a testimony that could help thousands!! Write a hub of love sista. The enemy and lusts in the world make it OK to walk away and very likely into another mess if the Lord is not involved. You are so precious to me and to many judicastro sister and friend. I just love ya. I want to give you a squeezin hug of love. You lift and encourage and Bless others by your presence. You are a special gift to behold. Amen to Christ in you and on you. You keep shining that light 'sista' Times are getting tougher in the 'world' of things. I am so Blessed to know God 'will never leave nor forsake HIS children' Peace, In Him.

      I am more a pips striving to be a Queenie. (-;

      Thanks for sharing that wonderful experience of what the Lord did for you and your husband. I am truly happy for you all and I know your experience will definitely help someone else.

      There is power in prayer! Yours were a true example of that power that we have!

      Sometimes we go through experiences not only for ourselves, but to share with others and in return that person can draw strength from our experiences, which will help them in a mighty way.

      Now to your wonderful dream that you've gotten from the Lord.

      Hummn.. which doggie are you? Awesome!

      Your writing of your dream is so vivid of Pipsqueek, Laggin and Queenie and its exactly what the devil try to do to people, now the question remains what that individual is going to do about it, when the devil comes their way - Which doggie is he?

      Like you've mention which I like, "The devil has been defeated on the cross at Calvary. He is doomed to the hell of fire. Jesus took our sin, sickness, illness, oppression and depression on the cross, for His Children. If you are a Child of God you are saved, born again. You are made new in Christ Jesus!"

      That what people got to hold on to and fight the good fight of faith and they'll be just like Queenie.

      Back to your question, Which Dog are you? Definitely Queenie!

      Hi sweet friend! It's been too long I'm afraid. I love this hub. A few years back my husband and I were having some problems, he told me he didn't love me nor did he think he ever loved me. He had taken a job in another state and asked for a divorce. God gave me three visions, each at a separate time when I thought I was going to give up. I like you was vigilant in prayer, often spend sleepless nights praying for him. God showed me that if I gave up on him he would be lost. After about a year he came home but it was still a fight for his soul. Today we have the best marriage we've ever had and have been married over 28 years. Wives need to understand the power that God has given us in praying for our husbands, truly no one can effect a difference like we can and I believe it because we are a part of them. A mother's prayer also has great effect, but when he marries it shifts to his wife. God showed me that we can ask Him to change the heart of our husband and bring it back to Him, when his heart changes it changes his mind. I have watched God do this over and over. Love you dear sis and think of you often!!

      Hi skye, I like the doggie with the ear down it shows that they are closed to any sort of rubbish that is all around, and it does not want to be part of, then the other ear is up to listen to all the good things in life, listening to when the call comes to be on the ready.

      Isn't that just like us there are so many with thier ears closed to the rubbish, yes and even closed to the good things too.

      and then there are those who are on the ready elert with their ear just waiting for the call to come.

      God loves all

      this story is so inspirational and it helps us to really look at ourselves and determine what and who God is to us. are we spending enought time in him, is he our help in times of trouble, are we even close enough to him to receive his help. I voted and sometimes I am pipsqueak & other times I am queenie but through the grace of God I am forever striving to be queenie in all things! Keep dreaming Skye, the skye is the limit!!! God bless and thanks for sharing, i learned something.

But just last night I had a strong one thatis still very vivid. I was praying with a friend's husband who is an alcoholic! Then I find this Hub in my email this morning. Wow, thanks God!

      BTW, I am Queenie! No one is going to come into my house and rob it of the peace, joy and saftey that Jesus purchased for me!

      Ooops... Forgot to vote-LOL. Was a toss up between "Queenie" and "Pipsqueek", so I prayed on it. What came to mind was: "Queenie" being fearless was "proud and confident" in the Lord, which is great as long as we don't let it go to our heads or let it create a "blindspot" that will be our undoing (like Samson); and next: "the meek will inherit the Earth", where although "Pipsqueek" was a bit "prissy" and "proud of it" (which may have just been the "role" her master's imposed on her) the "heart" door kept sticking in my mind (like having "free access" to God's love), and that her love for her family is what ultimately prevailed. She therefore found the strength to go up against a "big" enemy. There was also more detail and emphasis given to that part of the dream and there is usually a reason for that too.

      So, "Pipsqueek" got my vote.

      Hail sister Skye - Dreams are a great way for the Lord to get messages across to us. Not always easy to translate, but as long as YOU get what He's saying, that's what counts. Dreams are where I get much of my own inspiration. The things that jumped in my head just now were (Luke 10:17-20) and (1Samuel 17:47), we are so blessed to know the Lord and have confidence that it's His battle to fight for us, not necessarily ours.

      You and David keep Him with you always. Praise God you have both overcome much to enjoy the relationship you have (both with Him and each other). His strength is difinitely in His word-AMEN With peace... Rev.Ted

      Hi Skye, I too have very vivid dreams but they come when I least expect it. Like you I write them down because I know they mean something. The metaphor of the dogs guarding the house is so true. Darkness truly tries its utmost best to get in at the door. I think that the dog I would want to be most like is Queenie but I am sometimes like Laggin. Some things I let slide and then when it reaches to too much I let it rip. You woke me up with this one.
