Visions of Sugar Plums

  …..dance in my head…..and Thanksgiving is merely two days away. My mouth waters as the invisible scent of roasted turkey, garlic mashed potatoes, steamed corn, buttered greenbeans waft through my consciousness. And then the desserts! Oh my…. But it’s more than just satisfying my need for tryptophan! Much, much more! It’s about family. It’s about friends. It’s about coming together to share generations of memories as well as to catch a glimpse into the future generations that will be. Thanksgiving has been around in various forms for eons...

Trials and Tribulations

Posted by on Nov 23, 2021 | 0 comments

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. … James 1:2-8 OOOOOK……yeah…right….I’ve read this a million ties and all I...

  In this day and age with everything we see swirling around us causing confusion, stress and panic….we need to take a DEEP breath and remember all the GOOD in our lives. First and foremost, let us thank HIM for giving us ~ this very minute – the breath of life!   Thank you Father for the breath of air that I breathe into my lungs….the breath that comes from YOU! Next, take another deep breath, slowly exhale and the next thing that pops into your mind, thank Him for that! Thank you Father for giving me this day full of surprises, full of ups and downs and...

Dark Clouds Ahead

Monumental blasts of dark clouds are forecast for the upcoming future…at least that’s what all the pundits are shouting every single moment of every single day! Seems to me there’s another saying….remember ‘chicken little’? Yep, the ‘sky is falling, the sky is falling!’ … and all because of one little drop of rain. So what is the truth? As always, the answer is usually found somewhere in the middle. So, if we take both extremes – from ‘nothing to see here’ on one side, to ‘the sky is falling, the sky is...

Sukkot 2020 musings

Posted by on Sep 24, 2021 | 0 comments

another message that needed to be shared twice 🙂 Sukkot 2020 was unique in so many ways. Sukkot 2020 was easy…Sukkot 2020 was hard. Sukkot 2020 was exhilerating…Sukkot 2020 was draining. Sukkot 2020 was filled with laughter…Sukkot 2020 was drenched with tears. Sukkot 2020 was all these and more! This was the first year in exactly five years to the date that my first-born son, Jim, experienced a family Sukkot. This was the first year in five years that my son Jim laughed freely, embraced often and walked with head held high as his spirit touched the heavens. This was the...

Psalm 47….Ponderings…

  God the King of the Earth. For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. Psalm 47 Oh clap your hands, all ye peoples; Shout unto God with the voice of triumph. For Jehovah Most High is terrible; He is a great King over all the earth. He subdueth peoples under us, And nations under our feet. He chooseth our inheritance for us, The glory of Jacob whom he loved. Selah God is gone up with a shout, Jehovah with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises: Sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: Sing ye praises with...
