Shabbat Ponderings before SUKKOT!

Updated note: This came across my blog feed from five years ago, felt it was still good to share …..and while my oldest son is now home among us, his father and his only brother, Jason are here only in spirit. But through the tears, my heart rejoices for the blessing of having Jim home and all of them in my heart! 10-2-20 Updated updated note: all of the above … only one year later 2021 Today is a day of Shabbat…a day of peace and blessing and yes, I must admit, a bit of testing out the Sukkah a few days before the Feast.  The tiny makeshift canopy blowing in the wind above...

Yom Kippur… At-One-Ment

Posted by on Sep 16, 2021 | 0 comments

YOM KIPPUR Yes…today is the day of being AT ONE with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords… this is the day when heaven meets earth…the spark touches the source and your essence is one with the Flame. Are you asking why? Simply put, it is because the Holy One Himself told us to….no other reason than that. But I’m not a Jew! I’m not religious like that! Seriously, lady you don’t know what you’re talking about! Neither am I, nor am I religious and it’s not me talking….it’s the Great I AM. Leviticus 16:29 mandates establishment of...

Erev Yom Kippur

remember, this is from Orthodoxy….allow the Ruach haKodesh to sift through the words, and speak to your heart… Tishrei 9, Erev Yom Kippur TO BE LIKE ANGELS Tonight we will begin a 25-hour fast of Yom Kippur.  We don’t do this in order to afflict ourselves, which is the purpose of the fast of Tisha B’Av when we mourn the destruction of the Temple—indeed Yom Kippur is not a day of mourning but a day of joy. We fast on Yom Kippur because on this day we want to transcend our physical limitations and be like angels, and food and other physical concerns distract us from our...

Are you ready for Yom Kippur?

Are you ready for Yom Kippur?

Yom Kippur the Day of Atonement. Are you ready? If you are asking “ready for what?” than let me explain. The Day of Atonement is the holiest day of the year for all of Judaism and is one of the Feast Days of the LORD listed in Leviticus 23. Read that last part again, one of the FEAST DAYS OF THE LORD. Yes, that’s right, the Holy One Himself, (no matter what you call him – Yahovah, Yahweh, God) designed this day as one of HIS feast days and commanded all those that followed Him to honor them for eternity. Well, that about says it all – and that is what...

Days of Awe – Day 10

Posted by on Sep 14, 2021 | 0 comments

It is that time. It is the 10th day of the Seventh Month of the Biblical Calendar. It is our APPOINTED TIME. This is THAT DAY. This is the day time and eternity, darkness and light, hope and despair, good and evil, life and death, all take their turns wrestling with each other over our souls. Today we taste of death. Today we are called upon to appear before, give an account to, and receive a decree from our Creator. We are poured out like water, and all our bones are out of joint; Our hearts are like wax; they have melted within us. Our strength is dried up like a potsherd, and our tongues...

Tishrei 7 – Forgiveness

Tishrei 7 – Forgiveness

Tishrei 7 THE CYCLE OF FORGIVENESS Yom Kippur, which is only three days away, is called the “Day of Forgiveness” because this is the day when Moses, after pleading with G-d for 80 days to forgive the Israelites for the Sin of the Golden Calf, finally succeeded.  On this day, G-d finally said to him: “I will forgive as you have asked.” On Yom Kippur we seek to connect to the energy of this awesome day and win forgiveness for ourselves as well.  But we can hardly expect to be forgiven by G-d if we ourselves have not been willing to forgive others. Forgiveness is not...
