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...

“Last Day” Ponderings

“Last Day” Ponderings

 LAST DAY? What last day? Dear Mishpocha (family), Today, on the calendar that I follow for the Feast Days, it is the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, following Passover and then First Fruits (Lev 23:9-14). For some of you, Easter comes tomorrow and you will be celebrating the Resurrection then. To reconcile the two, one can also read I Cor. 15:20-23 where Paul speaks about Jesus being the First Fruits. Either way, those of us that follow the God of Israel and our Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) rejoice in the Son overcoming evil and paving the way for all of us to return to the Father!...

A Widow’s Mite…or Might?

What is a Widow’s Mite/Might? As I was pondering this morning on a blessing I received in the mail yesterday….the phrase ‘widow’s mite’ came to mind. And then of course since I am a multi-tasker, various words and images transformed ‘mite’ into ‘might’ and then MIGHT(y)! Meditating on that a little longer, I thought, this would make a good ‘sword stroke’ 🙂 .. so here we go! First, let’s examine what exactly was a ‘widow’s might’ from the scriptures: “He sat down opposite the treasury and observed...

A stroke of the ‘sword’…

A stroke of the ‘sword’…

So as we said on our last post, one of my ‘swords’ is the pen…or the keyboard. So as I pondered about that revelation and wondered what that would look like, my mother pointed out … “Pamela….just read what you’ve already written! I keep telling you to write a book!” … Leave it to mothers to encourage you the most. I think, if I’m honest (and I strive to be), I already knew that one of my strongest strengths lies in the pen … I just didn’t connect it to a sword, as my friend Nitza had pointed out. That actually takes on...

Princess Warrior with a Pen for a Sword

A friend of mine, Nitza Moshe, spoke some words of life into my spirit today….she reminded me that I am a “Princess Warrior with a Pen for a Sword”.  That rang so true to my spirit. You see, I love words, I love writing, I love reading and many have said that my ‘words’ have touched them. Many, including my mother, insist I should ‘write a book’. So why don’t I? Motivation? Laziness? Distractions? … all of that and probably more. But I do have this little ‘ole blog…and I do post with all my heart. All types of words flow out...

Key to the Door – Got yours?

The Staley Space Good morning and welcome back to a few moments of “Sharing My Space – the Staley Space’ … for what it’s worth. As the early morning glimmers of light slowly drew back the curtains of darkness and filled the spaces with consciousness, reality began washing away the fragmented dreams like waves kissing the sandy beach … and another day emerges into focus. My eyes were still somewhat closed, but the fact remained, the night had slipped away and morning was knocking – again. The ritual resumes…prayers…thankfulness for another day of breath…a longing to be of...
