Times and seasons….

Posted by on Feb 22, 2019 | 0 comments

The times and the seasons, yes they do change, right on schedule. Well, maybe not our schedule, but there is a schedule. After the cold winter months where the air is frigid and silence abounds and all seems a wasteland of emptiness, a tiny blade of grass sprouts forth, or a daffodil dares to rise above the barren soil. Our attention is immediately focused on the tiny brave soul emerging from the frozen tundra and we are transfixed with wonder. The soul within us begins to be renewed with the hope of ‘spring eternal’. Our journey though life is much like the seasons of the year...

Erev Shabbat Ponderings

Erev Shabbat ~ eve of Shabbat ~ and as I anticipate the quiet solitude that Shabbat brings, I wonder lazily what the Father has in store for my journey. There are many things that have transpired in the last few years, none of them were even a blip on my radar! But here we are and it is what it is. This afternoon has been a contemplative one and as the realm of possibilities swarm above me like a giant cartoon balloon, I ponder on each idea, opportunity, direction. Which one Father which one? Trust in the Lord with all your heartAnd do not lean on your own understanding.6 In all your...

A week of revelation…

A week of revelation…

This week began just like any other week. A week determined to ‘get through’ the week. To make it to Friday. But something happened. Revelation is beginning (again) to take hold, to awaken within my battered soul. It began with reading a commentary on his week’s Parsha (weekly Torah reading), ‘Yitro’ (Jethro) ~ Exodus 18:1-20:23. The Intro for this parsha was written by a humble servant of the Holy One, who’ve I’ve listened to for over 10 years, Bill Bullock. His daily commentaries are written under the pen name of “Rabbi’s Son”. As...

Life is a journey….

Yes, that’s what I always tell people when they ask me ‘how do I do this’ or ‘how do I do that’ when referring to first coming into an understanding of the biblical roots of their faith (or anything else). “It’s a journey…..take time to B.R.E.A.T.H.E.” And it’s a phrase that I I believe in. But I have realized that everything is a journey – absolutely everything. Every step we take, every breath we draw – it is all about the journey. We are here for a purpose, even when that purpose continuously eludes us. Today is one...

Purpose …. where did you go?

Purpose …. where did you go?

Seems like that’s the clarion call in the wind…or maybe it’s just the wind in my own backyard. No, it truly is in the wind.  From California to New York those seven little letters are running rampant through the streets and sneaking into unlatched back doors. Doesn’t matter if you’re ten or ten times ten … it can wreak havoc on the most unsuspecting soul! During the day one can usually quite the siren call, calm the frenzied senses, and convince one’s humble self that ‘I’m ok’… after all, you have chores to do, kids to feed,...

Joy cometh in the morning

Posted by on Sep 24, 2018 | 0 comments

The Season of our Joy …. is upon us! Now…where did I put that flask of ‘joy’? Come out, come out wherever you are!!!!!! Ahhhhh…..there you are….hiding underneath the baggage of bitterness, frustration, and self-pity. Bringing out that tiny little flask I wonder….how could such a minute little bag of joy fill this empty old tired body….seems impossible for sure. So, gingerly pulling apart the frayed strings of that little flask – OUT POURS JOY!!!! And she reminds me, quite pointedly, how much I have to be thankful for….good health...
