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 […]

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

Tuesday, October 6, 2015.  It’s 2 am, and I’m wide awake. After three nights of sleeping 5-6 consecutive hours like normal folks, Insomnia strikes AGAIN! Ugh!   It’s very frustrating. After forcing myself to go to bed before midnight for the last three nights, I made the mistake of taking a nap around 9 this morning, […]

I’m So Glad I Grew Up with Animals

“Happy birthday to you.  Happy birthday to you. You look like a blah-blah… And you smell like one, too!” I remember hearing and singing this ditty as a young child with my friends, then, laughing and chasing each other around in fun. The ironic thing is, I probably did often smell like some kind 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 […]

On Grief and Comfort

   (Photo courtesy of K-Love, Scott and Kelli)   I could not have known that, on July 29th of this year, I would be paying the price of love, and entering my own passage through grief. My youngest sister, Becky, died suddenly, after battling with mystifying illnesses—and mis-diagnosed symptoms—off and on, for years.    Her […]

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 […]

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

Saturday, January 3, 2015. I tried something that have haven’t done for a few years: I set some New Year’s resolutions. One was to begin using the Neat scanner that I spent $400 on, two or three years ago, to faithfully scan in all my receipts. Another was to stop spending days on end in […]

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 […]

Not Defined by the Size of Our Jeans (reblog)

Proverbs 31 Ministries “Not Defined by the Size of our Jeans” by Emily T. Wierenga The moon was a slice of white in the night sky… . I was holding a baby doctors had said I’d never be able to have… . I have two sons now, and I’ve had two miscarriages too, and there’s […]

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, […]

Christian Quote of the Day

“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 […]
