Parsha Ponderings….

Posted by on May 24, 2019 | 2 comments

The Haftarah this week is Jeremiah 32:6-27. For those of you just beginning this walk, the Haftarah refers to an additional portion from the Nevi’im (Prophets) read after the weekly Torah portion. There are 3 parts that are read by believers in Yeshua (Jesus) on Sabbath, the Torah, the Haftarah and the Renewed Covenant (NT). As I read thru the Parsha (weekly Scripture portion) for this week, Jeremiah really spoke to me and I’d like to share few thoughts concerning something it said. Jeremiah is probably one of my favorite books … because it speaks to me personally. Not to...

Day by Day…

Posted by on May 14, 2019 | 3 comments

Taking things day by day is always an excellent idea. Have you tried it lately? It’s not as easy as some might think however. ‘Stuff’ gets in the way. Stuff – like fixating on the past, wondering how things could have gone differently, all the would’ve, could’ve, should’ves. That ‘stuff’ gets in your thinking cap and rattles your brain until it’s like mush and today … well, today is gone and now it’s tomorrow! So much for taking things one day at a time! So let’s try again. Day 2. Since we weren’ able to have...

Spring has sprung

The cycles of time have returned to the rebirth of spring here in central Missouri and it is a welcome sight to be sure! No one that I am aware of would push her arrival off any longer than necessary – certainly not I. I love hearing the birds announcing her arrival and beginning new life of their own. I love seeing the tiny signs of life spring up in the form of daffodils, tulips and yes, dandelions. I love being able to sit on the porch and breathe deeply of the warm air filtering in through the slightly cool breezes. I love everything there is about this time of the year….it...

Nice surprise

While I was digging into some briefcases of my late husband’s looking for last year’s tax return….oh figuring things out is SO difficult, I ran into a couple of items that lifted my spirits and gave me the encouragement to keep going forward. Wanted to share it with you….these are from 1992, the year I was blessed to go to Israel for the first of several trips. Can not believe it has been that long! The local newspaper in St. Charles, Missouri came out to ‘interview’ me and ask all kind of questions on why I was ‘building bridges’ –...

Just a little something … to lift you up

Just a little something … to lift you up

This week was an especially hard one for me. It began with a week of feeling as if I were almost drowning in tears of grief and loosing the ability to breathe deeply (they tell me it’s asthma but I don’t agree). But, yesterday that last straw broke the camel’s back and I awoke to gasping, unable to breathe; I sank to my knees while grabbing the nebulizer and was ready to truly ‘be free’ imploring Abba to bring me home to join my husband and son. I know, I know, that sounds horrid doesn’t it – a weak willed woman ready to give up, looking for escape....

Erev Shabbat Ponderings

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...
