Vayetzei, the Metaverse, Manna, Bananas, and Wrestling

The Metaverse is a new coming technology. Facebook Inc will invest $50 million to partner with organizations to responsibly build the so-called metaverse. In this digital world, people can use different devices to move and communicate in a virtual environment. The money used to buy property in this metaverse world of the new Facebook is called mana, not manna. Mana is defined as a pervasive … Continue reading Vayetzei, the Metaverse, Manna, Bananas, and Wrestling

The Art of Seeing as We Wait (Vayera)

Last week’s Torah Portion was Lekh Lekha meaning “Go” or “Go find yourself.” Abram and Sari set out, leaving everything familiar, including their families. My husband and I found ourselves in the same position at the exact time. Following the Torah portions (first 5 books) can be pretty comforting and eye-opening. While sitting outside our hotel last week, I saw a sight that caught my attention. Two … Continue reading The Art of Seeing as We Wait (Vayera)

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

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

Mar-A-Lago and Shavuot

  Although words like Trump, Donald, and Mar-a-Lago will be in this blog, it is not a political post and has nothing much to do with the Donald.  The other day, I decided to go to an opposite news source, CNN via YouTube. As I was comparing headlines, one caught my attention. The video was titled Not an easy transition: Hear inside details of Trump’s … Continue reading Mar-A-Lago and Shavuot

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
