Yea, Though I Walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death… .

During the most desperate times in my life, when It was impossible for me to “fix” anything, I clung to the pages of God’s Word, and called out to Him.

The sacrifice of Abraham

Where is God?

When things are going well, it’s easy to attribute that to God. But, when tribulations arise? Not so much! It is curious that He is called, “The God Who likes to hide Himself.” Is this where the game of ‘Hide and Seek’ originated? God wants us to seek hard after Him, to cling to Him […]

Rosh Hashanah and the Mourning of Muharram

The Brotherhood of Man I have written in the past, concerning my understanding of the shared ancestry of Jews, Christians and Muslims (Arab) through Abraham, as described in the Bible. On Monday, I posted about the significance of Rosh Hashanah for Christians.  This morning, I noticed that one of my calendars showed Rosh Hashanah and a Muslim […]

It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (December 2015)

Tuesday, December 15, 2015.  I haven’t posted an update in a couple of months, perhaps because three deaths in the family occurred recently. And, while the passing of these three individuals, my youngest sister, one of my brothers-in-law, and the mother of a different brother-in-law, I would like to share the beautiful way that God is […]

A Word for Those Who Lay Awake at Night Wondering What Tomorrow May Bring

Every day, programs on TV, radio, and electronic media-feeds bombard us with news of the latest threats and attacks, both foreign and domestic. The stock market surges and crashes. And the weather seems to grow more intense with each passing season. We might even be experiencing difficult relational situations at home or at work. Today’s […]

Shattered Glass

Before the spinning, out of control, the shattered glass flying,  and my brain rolling upside-down… I’d set an alarm to wake myself from dreaming, splash water on my face, and throw on my fashion of the day, as I downed dripped coffee, and dash into the frenzied machinations of the weekly blur of the marketplace. […]

The beauty of God’s Creation

  A silent sunrise, too beautiful for my iPhone camera, speaking volumes.  Pristine and misty-blue ice giants, a churning of the vast sea, and a flock of penguins render me awestruck.    A random growth of “weeds” gracefully surrounds a cultivated azalea with beauty.    The desert, ablaze with color, forms a teeming ecosystem.   Every inch of […]

The Sheep of His Pasture

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: And I give unto them eternal life.” (John‬ ‭10‬:‭27-29‬ KJV) The Christian walk can be a difficult one.  We, naturally (that is to say, the “natural” man in us) want to do our own thing.  But, the new Spirit man in us […]

To My Jewish Friends

Before Yeshua, Gentiles were godless people, or worshipped false gods, which are no gods.   “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14 KJV) But now, true Christian believers worship the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, whose […]

Izzy the Baby Worshipper

“Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.” (Psalms‬ ‭8‬:‭2‬ KJV) Is there anything more innocent than a toddler praising her Creator!Two Year Old Praising God to Chris Tomlin’s “Our God” (Click to view.) “And said, Verily I […]

Signs That God Exists

Whether or not to believe in the existence of God (YHWH, pron. Jehovah) is a very personal decision. In my case, I was introduced to the concept of entering into a personal relationship with the God of the Bible, through what was described to me as a process of reconciliation. God sent His only Son, […]

“Mom, I Wish You Could Have Been Here on Mother’s Day.”

As Mother’s Day approached this year, I mentally recounted, as I do every year, how long it had been since my mother had passed away—nearly 19, and I felt a sudden pang, as that cruelly-ordinary number suddenly made my mom feel so very far away. I felt a familiar wave of sadness, and a soul-deep […]

Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner (reblog)

from larkandbloom This blog is not serving it’s purpose if I am ever anything but honest. Many of your lives are different from mine – politically, romantically, geographically and in our religious views. I really enjoy that about this space and try to mindful of that every time I sit down to type. This isn’t […]
