Well, today is my youngest son’s 42nd birthday. He is not here. At least not in this time realm. But he is still ‘with us’ – everything we hear, see and feel somehow touches the essence of who he really was … how the God we serve ‘sees’ him. That is how I see him now… perfected … waiting to be crowned for his tender and loving spirit … acknowledged for his desire to rise above the tribulations of his short life … and most of all for his heart after the ways of his King. Like all of us still in this time realm, he fell, he...

Entering in

…to celebrate –  SHABBAT! Another week has come to a close and a new one begins as we take deep breaths … in – out – in – out and settle into the joy and peace of Shabbat! The seventh day is a day set aside by the Holy One Himself – from the beginning of time.  A time for all of us, man and beast, to rest and renew our strength. We rest in Him because – well, He IS our strength! During these last few weeks of transitioning into a different reality – one that does not have my youngest son here in the flesh – one would think that...

Your Journey Matters

Everything you do in life matters….even the mundane. Maybe, the mundane is even more important!  Here is the last daily word of Rabbi Jacobson, an orthodox Rabbi that truly touched my heart this morning. Perhaps we could learn more about how to live life in a godly way from those who have kept the oracles of the great One far longer than we have known about them. EVERYTHING YOU DO MATTERS Once upon a time, the Baal Shem Tov sent a group of his students on an important mission to help a needy couple in another town.  When they returned, he was not so interested in hearing about their...

A Feast of “JOY”

Posted by on Oct 6, 2017 | 0 comments

Today is the first day of SUKKOT ~ the Feast of Tabernacles ~ A Feast of Joy. This is a hard one this year. Our family loves Sukkot – and has embraced the Festivals of the LORD as commanded in the Bible. If you’re asking what this is all about and why we (non-Jews) celebrate it, let me please share a bit of the why. About 30 years ago, I started on a quest to find the ‘truth’. Back then, didn’t even know what I was searching for … just needed some answers because I was turning 30 and wanted to know ‘is this all there is’? Searching for answers...

Mistakes Will Be Made

Posted by on Oct 6, 2017 | 0 comments

This is from my friend Skip Moen, “Today’s Word” sent out daily. With all the division amongst the body today, the ‘need’ for recognition and titles and what have you – this word for the day simply reminded me of my son, Jason. Jason was never one to ask for recognition, never one that grandstanded, never one that needed the spotlight. He was one of those souls that only spoke when the time was right, helped without being asked and never needed a thank you. Well, almost … he wasn’t perfect, but he tried really hard. Mistakes Will Be Made by...
