Another milestone….

Posted by on May 27, 2017 | 1 comment

My second born grand daughter, MacKenzie Staley, graduated yesterday from highschool. How could that be? She is still just a little tow headed little toddler? And I bet I’m not the only one that feels that way – eh Jay & Nicci? Sigh…..time marches on. ‘Kenzie’ is a beautiful, sweet, gentle and loving young lady. She is way too grown up for her age of course, but she has come thru the trials of her short life in grand style. Her beauty comes from the inside … and we are so proud of her! As we sit at your graduation, my dear, watching you ‘walk the...

Ahhhh….spring

Ahhhh….spring

Yes…another winter behind us…another spring opening up before us. The essence of the breezes are lighter, full of scents that refresh the psyche and put a spring in the step. Several springs. This is my 65th spring….that is mind blowing. But I relish every moment, taking the time to ‘see’ and ‘hear’ and sometimes I just sit on the deck and marvel at the beauty that the Holy One, the Creator of everything in the Universe has blessed His children with. The garden is beginning to look alive…green is everywhere and salads have been gracing our...

Esther…and Concealment – Part 2

(miss part 1? Click here!) Part 2 So, here we are – it seems that Esther & Mordechai have saved the day! But not quite. Even though Haman (who by the way was a descendant of Agag the Amalakite – sworn lifetime enemy of Israel) was out of the picture, the decree that he finagled to kill the Jews was not! Now comes the crux of the story. Would the Queen who has been concealed all this time in the pages of history reveal herself and be able to save her people? Let’s review. Esther has just revealed that she has a ‘people’ other than her Persian subjects! Her...

Going and Coming

A great message by Skip Moen – if you enjoy his teachings, please make sure to join us in August where he will be speaking in Kansas City, MO!   Going and Coming by Skip Moen, D. Phil. I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper who will be with you forever. John 14:16 NASB Another helper – We all know this Greek word, Paraklete, “the Helper.” Growing up in the Western Church, we were told that this is a circumlocution for the Holy Spirit. This verse in John is typically used to establish the person of the Holy Spirit, the “other” helper who will come after Yeshua...
