  • The Valentine's Day Challenge - For Mature Audiences Only!

    14 February 2011

    For years now this phrase has conjured a wild mix of emotions in my inner being. I am a woman, so of course the romantic force is strong with me! But also, I am a woman who has happened to have lived a long and observant life, and hence has detected a...

  • The Broken Vows, His Story....

    14 February 2011

    Watching her walk away a wave of sorrow engulfed him. He was truly sorry that he had not kept the vows he made. He had meant to this time! He had thought, just for a moment, while they were there, under the arbor in the garden, looking at each other with...

  • The Broken Vows

    10 February 2011

    She sat across from him, as though looking at him, but staring past him, almost through him. She had hoped to be “loved and cherished” but she had received only bitterness that felt like hatred, and reviling that felt like anything but “cherishing”. She...

  • “And The Two Shall Become....?”

    27 February 2011

    The Two Become One - Not the wife becomes a shadow - Not the husband becomes the invisible man! But both are intended to be made into the image of Christ, who is the glue in the center! We meld into Him, as both work toward leaving their old ways, and...

  • Righteousness vs. Religion

    01 March 2011

    Fear of sin does not produce righteousness! The reverence for, and faith in, the One who has overcome sin is the only thing that produces righteousness. Not even the fear of offending God produces righteousness, rather it produces a cold, technical, unfeeling,...

  • A Restless Blog

    04 March 2011

    I sit here, trying to think of something to blog about. I rarely feel so little stimulation or inspiration. I am tired. Thankfully it is the Sabbath, a time of rest. The problem is that in our culture, the weekend does not necessarily lend itself to restful...

  • Insomniac's Dream

    01 March 2011

    As restless thoughts consume the night, and keeps sleep distant, out of sight, I turn my troubled mind to You, Knowing that You'll see me through. As drama replays in my head, of all that has been done and said, I turn and cry out for the grace, to stay...

  • Yom Teruah ~ The Feast of Trumpets ~ A Call to Teshuvah

    29 September 2011

    Teshuvah, a longing deep inside, one wants to return home, to abide, to return to Father's firm embrace, to His loving, searching, smiling face. Prodigals, we take and use, plunder, spoil and abuse His blessings and inheritance, on fleshly urgings, happenstance....

  • Don't Offense Me In!

    23 March 2012

    It has been observed that, "A grave is nothing but a rut with both ends filled in."! I would like to observe further that this proverbial "rut" is real, it is called religion. It is a nasty habit that is much like a rocking chair, there is movement alright,...

  • Revolution, Acknowledged and Applied

    25 February 2011

    What has been pedaled as submission in “church”, (at least the majority of the organizations which bear that title in the south eastern U.S.A.) is a thinly veiled chauvinism, based on a great and ancient evil, which has come to be known, in our times,...

  • The Broken Vows - "Tomorrow is Today"

    20 February 2011

    The first decisions of a new lease on life had been made. Inwardly she cried out to God for strength and wisdom, hoping that if He answered she would be able to hear Him, and strong enough to do what He said, for a change! Of all the failures in her life,...

  • A Personal Journey of Teshuvah

    08 October 2011

    Teshuvah is the Jewish word that has loosely been translated as Repentance, meaning to turn from. But what is lacking in that definition is that there is also something to turn to, or return to, more precisely. Even for those who never actively sought...

  • The Restless Blog Continuum...

    05 March 2011

    I awoke this morning to a great heavy fog, a storm front caused by "the cares of this world" syndrome. The "list" for today's "to-do" looming upon me as the shadow of a great hawk threatening to devour its prey. Definitely not the way one should start...

  • When It Comes to Freedom - Where is the Real Honor? Part 4:

    15 March 2011

    There is so much real Spirit led preaching about honor these days! And it is all good stuff! However, the point that is still continually being missed, at least in what I have heard so far, is that it is rarely, if ever, applied to the proper honoring...

  • An Evening Psalm

    12 March 2011

    .Safely through another day, laying down to rest, hoping I have kept the way, doing what is best. Praying for the ones in need, praying for Your peace indeed, so that I can learn to heed, living as one blessed. May my dreams be of Your glory, my strength...

  • Ode To An Odious Boyfriend!

    15 February 2011

    I thought him to be the one who would care for her, our treasure, the beat of our hearts, I thought that he would be one who would give his life in her defense, as we would have, he seemed to judge our inadequacies so hard, surely he had more to offer?...

  • When it Comes to Freedom - Who Cares Enough to Change? Part 5:

    17 March 2011

    I want to say up front that I am not a "Women's Libber". I was. Back in the day, when I fought everything that moved, and my liberal education outweighed my scriptural understanding. Then I began to follow Jesus, and a bunch of His representatives convinced...

  • For The Joy That Endures

    08 March 2011

    It is written, that for the Joy which was set before Him, Jesus endured the cross. I have meditated on that a lot, I have tried to imagine what kind of Joy could have been a motivation worth that kind of suffering! If only I could get hold of the vision...

  • Harmonic Tapestry or Hellish Tangle?

    06 March 2011

    God meant us to be interwoven with others. No man is an island unto himself. Indeed, no one can be an island, unless he can manage to live a completely isolated, reclusive lifestyle, void of interaction of any kind. Which means that he may not have, or...

  • When It Comes to Freedom - Are We Insane? Part Three:

    14 March 2011

    Again, let me reiterate that my intention is not to attack "The Church", but to examine some doctrinal flaws that are causing untold damage and distress within her! We are the Church if we are believers in Messiah! We do not need to function as one with...

  • Rest

    18 March 2011

    The Ways of God do mystify, sometimes I laugh, and often cry, but always reaching out His hand, He lifts me up to understand, His heart is always for my best, and so, in that, my soul can rest! The ways of God, I can not know, the many paths He'd have...

  • Marriage - the Magical Mystery Tour?

    24 March 2011

    Marriage is the mystery that transcends all time and history, that germinates within the hearts, and saturates all other parts, of the lives of those entwined - body, soul and mind, as two lives are joined together, through the storms that we must weather,...

  • When It Comes to Freedom: Will We Pay the Price? Part Two:

    12 March 2011

    How can we expect to ever come into unity and agreement with each other as long as any people are being denied their God intended rights, authority, honor and positions? How can we possibly get His work done, when a full half, if not more, of His workers...

  • A Prayer for Grace!

    02 May 2011

    Dearest Father, LORD of All, Please, hear this servant, as I call! As I fall in worship before Your face, grant me power, Love and grace! Grace to serve You all my days, grace to boldly keep Your ways, grace to preach Your Holy Word, obeying all that...

  • When it comes to Freedom - How is that Defined? Part 6

    22 March 2011

    At first we are tempted to think of that title as an oxymoron. We tend to reason that boundaries restrict or limit, and therefore are not conducive to freedom. But that is a childish and unlearned pattern of thinking. There is no part of life, in actuality...
