Shabbat Shalom

This set apart day has been GIVEN to you! Yes! The Holy One himself, the King of Kings has invited you to his table to sit with him, to share with him, to BE with him! Are you listening? It is time to accept his long-standing invitation and renew our souls!

Inspection Time?

Have you been taking this season – the season of Elul – to inspect yourself? Yes, that’s what I said, INSPECT YOURSELF! If you are not aware of it, or if you are new to walking in the journey of the fullness of the word, then this is the month that we take time to ready ourselves before the fall…

Hump Day….

Yep … today is what they call ‘hump day’ … wonder how they came up with that phrase? I guess because mid week is always a half-way to weekend day…get over the hump day…and a camel has a hump….thereby…’hump day’. Sounds plausible. Anyway – today is Wednesday aka hump-day and I sit here thinking and wondering and contemplating why I’m…

Are you ready?

Is it an End or a Beginning? Elul, which began Saturday evening, August 27th is, well, BOTH! It is the ending of a year gone by and opens the heavenly portal of the year which will soon begin. According to tradition the focus of the month of Elul is to begin taking an account of our past deeds and to…

Old….stuff….

Saw this meme on FB today…and it really hit home with me. Maybe cause I’m having to realize that I’m ‘old’ .. well, getting there anyway! When I was 20 I thought 40 was ‘old‘ – when I was 40 I thought 60 was ‘old‘ .. and now, that I’m >70< (did I actually say that OUTLOUD?!)… well, needless to…

The Great I Am

Now here’s a good word we could all live by – A great description of the   Great “I AM” by Bill Bullock: He is the Ultimate Creative Genius. And He’s really, really KIND and PATIENT and MERCIFUL and FORGIVING and FAITHFUL TO COVENANT to boot. He never gets depressed, He is never afraid, He cannot be intimidated, and He refuses…

Stuck in the middle…

So just wondering….anyone else out there feel like they ‘are stuck in the middle’? Sometimes..well, I just feel stuck…stuck…stuck…stuck. But that’s such a self-defeating victim attitude and it serves no purpose except to sink into that …. stuckness. If you find yourself ‘stuck‘ way too often and the slime at the bottom of the pit keeps getting gooier and gooier…

It’s a Journey

When people write and ask me how to ‘find their ministry’, or ‘what is their goal’ – I simply reply by saying….. “It’s a Journey – take one day at a time”. And that is how I try to live….I prepare for the future, I glean from the past, but I try to live in the here and now.  Now,…

A little girl’s dream…

After our boys were grown and married, Jim and I turned our thoughts towards allowing that ‘dream‘ to become reality. What was that dream? Well, to be honest, it was a little girl’s dream – my dream. But my husband, Jim,  was just that kind of guy….he lived to make other people’s dreams come true ~ whether it was myself,…
