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
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
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.

My friend Charlie has a huge white rooster that sparked my attention of late. Yes, her henhouse has caused me to write a story a time or two. While meditating on a blog post about light, Charlie sent a comment to me in an email about her rooster named Honky that I could not get out of my spirit. Yes, Honkey is a derogatory name … Continue reading Honky-Tonk?
(Chapter 9)I remember the power that rang through the voice that was speaking to me and commanding Satan to turn me loose. The large hand was placed on¬¬¬ my forehead, and the prayer continued with more screaming at the enemy. “Satan wants to take you out! He wants to literally destroy you, but he must bow!”Sadly, I was suddenly feeling a little prideful that Satan … Continue reading Why do you Speak to Him? (Doctrines of Demons #1)
I am not sure when I started writing this poem or why or whose kitchen I stood in, but possibly it will help us think more about words. Ironically when I was finished, it had a word count of 1,000. I know with social media and texting, we often take words wrong or quickly respond without thinking about our words. Even still, what if all … Continue reading 1,000 Words
