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...

A 4th to Remember 2021

Posted by on Jul 8, 2021 | 0 comments

This past weekend we celebrated the Independence of our Great Country ~ The United States of America. After being subjected to an unprecedented ‘lockdown’ by the powers that be for over a year, patriots let loose in multi-colored fashion! All across the nation – from sea to shining sea – Americans held the colors high and celebrated with a passion I have not seen …. well, ever! And believe me, we celebrated like crazy back in ‘my’ day. But this was different – there was a call for freedom in the air, a passionate, soul-searching desire to prove...

Who are we? Who are you?

Who are we? Who are you?

HISTORY UNVEILED… As I recline this calm humid night, the ‘tv box’ flips thru channels … it lands on the History Channel and a program called “America”. Everyone, young and old alike, should take time to watch this drama packed, revealing program that will challenge your memory of school time history class. There are more than few surprises to ‘our’ history that I simply don’t remember being taught in school. One of the most notable points of the show are the commentators …. every culture represented the rise of this land we call...

Highway or Back Roads?

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!...
