The Back Roads…..Have You Been There?

The Back Roads…..Have You Been There? Speaking of those back roads…..have you traveled any? Can you look in your rear-view mirror of life and draw from your past? Most, probably all of us, are able to do a look-see. Those smooth sailing, easy joy riding times were actually …. truth be told are the ones when you were on vacation! The back roads are our typical day to day journey – juggling this and maneuvering around that and screeching to halts when something appears in the middle of the road. At least, that’s how I feel about all the back roads I’ve...

Highway or Back Roads?

HIGHWAYS OR BACK ROADS? Some say we travel on the highway of life. And most would agree – as they hit the gas and go full speed, never looking back. However, some of us find ourselves somewhere down a lonely back road…a well rutted, dusty, well-traveled back road. Those ruts seem to tell the story that many have gone before us. We have left the fast lane, the truckers, the various exits to this and that and have chosen our own way. Our way is undetermined, unproven, and sometimes, even uninhabited. But, it’s our road. A road that we have chosen to follow when common sense...

Turmoil and treachery…..the world seems that it is slowly spiraling out of control and many are wondering what on earth is happening .. and what will happen when the world gasps for breath. Where are we going, who are we, what do we do? There seems to be no pat answers that will satisfy anyone and so everyone is looking for someone or something to shed light into this dark storm cloud that is now hovering over our nation….over the world. But it comes down to each and every one of us to shed that light…to be that light. YOU…..ME…need to examine our hearts, search...

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Posted by on Apr 25, 2020 | 0 comments

I was in a conversation where the topic was why do ‘bad things happen to good people’? And as I pondered that…here were my thoughts: I wonder if perhaps….what we think is good or bad…is simply our ‘perspective’ … as one who has gone thru a WHOLE LOT OF HELL (imho) there were times when I stood on the deck w ith that proverbial ‘towel’ and wanted to throw it in and say ‘Is this what I get for following Torah?’ … and believe me – I’d throw that towel at Him….and then…I would sense that He...

The Canopy of Heaven Blooms

Posted by on Apr 7, 2020 | 0 comments

As I ‘shelter in home’ and ponder on all that has happened in such a short time, I find myself immersed in the never-ending cycle of life. Gazing out the windows of our living room, my heart ‘breathes in’ the beauty of the blossoming canopy of heaven. With all the unknowns, the heartaches and the disappointments …. a slow but sure smile begins to tug at my heart winding its way up to my lips.  The once bare and forlorn trees have been slowly clothing themselves in their new spring attire and have blossomed into a showcase giving glory to the  miracles of their...
