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

  What is a tradition? Webster’s dictionary 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 see our Messiah keeping? Plenty and I will name several as we move along in the Series, but what happens when we begin to use the traditions as a tool … Continue reading Traditions, Prophets, and the month of Elul

*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*

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

A Body with a Withered Hand– 5-Fold

There is nothing worse than a dead tree. Dead trees attract pests and termites. Dead trees carry disease that spreads to other trees. Dead trees may fall and cause damage, but what about dead hands? Withered hands? It has been a while since I have written about the 5-fold structure mentioned in the Torah and the Newer Testament by Paul (Sha’ul). In this writing, we … Continue reading A Body with a Withered Hand– 5-Fold

Prophetic Word for the Body and Author Update

I wanted to share a prophetic word the Father has been speaking to me of late, but before I get to that, a special update for my readers: There has been a lot going on with books. Praise the Holy One, my pen was recognized for The spirit of Leviathan, Jezebel, and Athaliah as a distinguished favorite from the independent press awards in the category … Continue reading Prophetic Word for the Body and Author Update

Blankets of Light

This morning while sitting outside with coffee, I noticed two birds flying toward me and then over my head. One was dark, resembling a raven. The other was as white as a dove. I stopped, mesmerized in disbelief. They flew side by side like friends on a journey. In swift thought, my brain asked, “Was that a white dove? No, surely not.” I gazed up … Continue reading Blankets of Light

The Head of John

My grandparents gathered in one-roomed buildings of their communities to sing hymns, pray and read the Bible every Sunday. They called the Messiah by the name Jesus. They knew nothing of the 7th day Sabbath. My grandparents and parents had no knowledge of a Mikvah but went humbly down to a river. They were baptized by a pastor who had no Hebrew or Greek at … Continue reading The Head of John
