What Can We Do?

Yesterday we looked at the faces we wore and the circumstances that caused us to paint those various masks and how we could stand outside the circle or get out of the proverbial box and evaluate those faces to see how we can go forward and have a more positive and blessed journey in the future. So let’s look at where we left it yesterday: Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;  Genesis 1:26a NASB Image/likeness – According to a footnote in the Siddur, a synonym for nefesh hayah in the Mishnah (Bava Kanna 2a) is mav’eh which the Talmud derives from the...

Wisdom…wherefore art thou?

Wisdom….it seems to elude us when we need it most! Many times it is right ‘on the tip of our tongue’ .. and yet it gets caught in the back of your throat and never makes it past your lips! Sometimes, it hits you like a ton of bricks 2 days later!! Ahhhh…..the life of a multi-tasker with too much on their plate…or not 🙂 As I was pondering that over my cup of coffee this morning…on the back patio…this came across my feed and I just couldn’t NOT share it! It fits in perfect with what I would always like to remember. So enjoy this little post from...

Trials and Tribulations

Posted by on May 19, 2020 | 2 comments

Today, Jodi O’Dell of Walk like a Hebrew asked me to share my thoughts on the trials and tribulations that all of us go through. Each of us has had our share of walking around that mountain … several times over. But as we continue this journey of faith, a blanket of comfort can be found in the scriptures. During my interview with Jodi we talked about various circumstances we have experienced and how hard it is sometimes to keep going forward. On my own journey, there have been many scriptures that have comforted me when the tears flowed, life was in turmoil and it felt there was no end...

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...

It’s all in your perspective…..choose wisely

Posted by on Dec 12, 2019 | 0 comments

Fast approaching … little lights flickering in the window, beckoning those shivering in the winter cold to come inside and warm their bones with a mug of warmness. So many Feasts of Dedication have come and gone. Memories, smells and sights that warm the soul…and some that, well, just don’t. There has been a lot of changes in the last ten years, and sometimes circumstances just seem to weigh too heavy on the heart to continue going forward. This year is extremely difficult, but I’m sure there are many out there that feel like they have a lump of coal in their stocking...
