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

Traditions, Prophets, and the Month of Elul Part #2

In Part One, I added the disclaimer/paragraph below at the blog’s beginning to help my readers think about traditions with more clarity.  “What is a tradition? Webster defines it as: an inherited, established, or customary pattern of thought, action, or behavior (such as a religious practice or a social custom) How many traditions do we read our Messiah keeping? Several, and I will name a … Continue reading Traditions, Prophets, and the Month of Elul Part #2

How many traditions do we see our Messiah keeping?

*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

“I see,” Said the Blind Man

  The other morning, while standing by my kitchen table, I flipped open my Bible and landed on a chapter in Ezekiel that made me set my coffee cup down. I began to count carefully the words I found in reference to vision or sight—almost 20. I’ll expound on that in a bit, but first, let’s talk about the windows of our soul. In the … Continue reading “I see,” Said the Blind Man

Widow

I’m still transferring blogs from my old website.  This one speaks to the heart of us all. It is a tad early, but July will be here before we know it.   One of my mother’s favorite movies was Gone With the Wind. We watched it every year growing up, and I can almost recite the whole four-hour film verbatim. At one point in the movie, … Continue reading Widow
