After Effects….

Well, Hanukkah 2021 has come and gone… tiny blue and white twinkling lights slowly put away with a twinge of sadness. Yummy fried foods and dreidel games are just a memory. It was a wonderful and family filled holiday and so many memories captured on phones, cameras and hearts. In our small family we held on to each and every moment, whether it be a squeal of delight from a youngster to a ear to ear grin from a teenager receiving a gift of love from another.

There has been a lot of changes in the last ten years, and sometimes circumstances just seem to weigh too heavy on the heart to continue going forward. This year is extremely difficult, but I’m sure there are many out there that feel like they have a lump of coal in their stocking...

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...
