The Vaxed and Unvaxed, The Guiltless and the Wicked

  Covid is not prejudice. Covid doesn’t care about our skin color, education, Torah knowledge, or the size of our bank account. Some of the most righteous, holy people, whether in leadership or among friends and family have gotten covid, and some have died regardless of their walk–regardless of their age or health. And the Creator of the heavens and the earth is not unaware.  … Continue reading The Vaxed and Unvaxed, The Guiltless and the Wicked

Dandelion Seeds

  He said, “Gram’s, I picked this for you.” One small outstretched hand held one dandelion that had seen better days. No longer green– Its golden petals were now full of white powdered seeds. “Do you want me to blow it,” he said, with large three-year-old eyes that still see the wonder of God’s creation. “Yes, Emmitt, blow it.” “Watch Granny,” he said, as he … Continue reading Dandelion Seeds

I Bet You Have

Have you ever heard the Dawn awaken? The calm? Cascading down your soul When morning walks in When the robins sing And the dogwoods bloom And speak your name To welcome you? I bet you have. Have you ever thought of coffee plants with waxy leaves and cherry beans when you drink your first cup?  Or pictured tea from a special garden where hands in … Continue reading I Bet You Have

Court is in Session– I do not Know the Man of Clay

  Every year before the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), we go through some form of testing. If Yeshua was the ultimate sacrifice, we must ask ourselves what His test looked like. They started with the wilderness and a 40 day fast. His identity is tested but He overcomes and begins His ministry with great power. Later, Yeshua is tested more than any human has … Continue reading Court is in Session– I do not Know the Man of Clay

Relationships Since 2020, the Real Virus

Some of the things that have occurred since 2020 have altered our lives and relationships in ways that I find no words for. It started with the word crown–then a mask, and Clorox wipes. In the beginning, we all were a tad overwhelmed. What is this corona? Where did it come from? We were singing “It’s the end of the world as we know it,” … Continue reading Relationships Since 2020, the Real Virus

*FREE CHAPTER*

 Joyful Outcast   Sometimes joy arrives in the strangest of circumstances. It often comes from those deemed outcasts. It takes a conversation with a homeless veteran to remind us that we have heat blowing through vents in our homes. It takes our car breaking down for us to realize the joy of transportation. Gratitude often brings joy. At other times, it takes a person in … Continue reading *FREE CHAPTER*

The Womb and the Sword

My last blog titled Madmen showcased the prophet Elisha, Jehu, and Hazael. This blog is a bit of a contranym concerning life and death and the most sacred place of all, the womb. We will begin with darkness and then go to the light.  In II Kings 15, we have a king who rips the unborn from the womb. Ironically, this King’s name means “consoling—comforter.” … Continue reading The Womb and the Sword
