  • Rest or Regrets? It is really a Choice. An Encouragement to Mothers of Older Offspring.

    23 December 2009

    It is difficult, if not entirely impossible to make it through the maze of parenting without garnering a few regrets. There are plenty of "how-to" books on the subject, as well as countless "experts" pushing their ideas of how it should be done, even...

  • Have You Fed Your Imagination Lately?

    11 February 2010

    Since the day when, as a college student doing a myriad of odd jobs to make ends meet, I discovered this book in an ancient man's ancient library collection (while dusting), those words that comprised the title, “My Utmost for His Highest”, have both...

  • My Declaration of Freedom

    27 January 2010

    Today is the first day of my Fifty-second year on earth. At this age in 1978 my poor, sick Mother (who was sick in both body & soul), departed this life, rescued by her Lord to live the life eternal (since she never really got to live down here), but...

  • Observations

    23 March 2010

    Before I get to my real point I want to make a disclaimer. Due to time constraints I have not run down all the “facts” to be sure that what I have heard is all exactly right. I am merely responding to what I have heard/read on both sides of the party...

  • Going Boldly Where No Man Has Gone Before

    01 January 2010

    (The Gate Of The Year) As I begin my 4th year of “Jubilee” there is a growing sense of excitement in my being. I have always loved the New Year. It stretches before me like stacks of clean white paper, just waiting to be written on, or drawn or painted...

  • Back on Track

    28 June 2010

    Looking up from where I've fallen, I am tempted to despair. Somehow I never see it coming! It comes from who knows where! My life has been a rocky road, and many times I've lost the trail. There's so many times I've fallen , and it seemed that I would...

  • Gethsemane, The Oil Press. Are we there yet?

    06 April 2010

    SCD 4/5/10 The oil press. Gethsemane. Where Jesus went to face the enemy down for the final showdown. He had defeated him in the wilderness, by refusing all the short-cuts he was offered. Short-cuts meant to short-circuit the work of reconciliation He...

  • The Aging Adventure of a Fellow Baby-Boomer

    10 February 2010

    I decided to call this the “Aging Adventure” because I love alliteration, and, more importantly, because I am trying to find things about this whole “aging gig” to be positive about. I have found that, somehow, referring to any unavoidable change as “adventure”...

  • Parental Questionings

    28 June 2010

    But really! Is it too much to ask? That, as I age, I may be treated with respect, dignity and honor? After giving my youth, my best years - physically at least, and investing all I had, in fact more than I ever even thought I had in me, for “their” best...

  • Faith Questions

    06 April 2010

    SCD 4/6/10 This morning I am aware of two impressions that seem at first to be distinctly opposite, but as I ponder them I think they may just be some of those ironic elements found in the lives of those who are imposing the rules of an invisible kingdom...

  • The Significance of Intimacy

    28 June 2010

    (The Intrinsic Value of Intimacy, and The Physical Expression of Love ) For all of that to be reduced to a three letter Word, that has the ability to conjure the most disgusting visuals, and the most turbulent of emotional storms, seems such a travesty!...

  • A Memorial for my Mother: Mary, The Bittersweet

    07 May 2010

    Today is the day in history when, in 1927, my mother entered the world as Mary Ruby Livengood. Her mother had actually chosen Mary Elizabeth as her name. But a close relative promised her a new baby dress if she would name her Mary Ruby. A fact which...

  • Overcomer or Overwhelmed?

    03 April 2010

    Overwhelmed or Overcoming? Overwhelmed or Overcoming, which will I choose to be? It comes down to what I reverence, Jesus Christ or raging sea! Stormy winds that shake & rattle, boisterous waves that swell & heave; How can they really matter, if He's...

  • The Twin Wonders of the Atonement

    06 August 2010

    It has been said that the definition of Mercy is that we do not get the evil which we clearly deserve, and Grace is that we do get unmerited favor and blessing, or that which we clearly do not deserve. However, the marvelous mystery of the Atonement of...

  • Concerning Freedom

    06 August 2010

    The "Freedom of Religion" in this particular nation, was fought for and achieved at a great cost, with the intention of pursuing a Particular God! We never presumed to attempt to provide “Freedom” to the enemies of Him! It was never intended for those...

  • A Meditation on a Worship Song, And Other Considerations

    30 June 2010

    I have called this “A Meditation on a Worship Song”. Some of you will recognize the song. Most will not. But it poured through my being this morning, and so I write. It begins with a prayer of Worship of my own, but then shoots off into a healing realization...

  • The Beach Comber

    01 November 2010

    Skin, tanned and well aged, as fine leather, told of many years spent in the sun. Fine lines 'round blue eyes, full of sparkle and shine, told of the laughter and fun. Undaunted by encroaching wrinkles, bikini clad, despite decreasing tone, unhindered...

  • A Meditation On Beauty For Ashes

    04 July 2010

    Abbi (My Father), Yeshua (Jesus), Ruach Ha'Kodesh (Holy Spirit of G-d), You've turned, and are continually turning my mourning into joy, and replacing my ashes with something beautiful for Your Glory! The ashes have come from the fires of purification,...

  • The Work of Unity in the Atonement of Christ

    31 August 2010

    The call of the Spirit, and therefore the work of the Church, in these – the days believed to be the last of times, is Unity. This is not a new concept, but its emphasis has been reignited, due to the division that has been allowed to develop between...

  • Meditations on Thanksgiving

    25 November 2010

    “Give Thanks with a grateful heart! Give thanks to the Holy One! Give thanks, because He's given Jesus Christ, His son! And now, let the weak say I am strong, let the poor say I am rich.....” ...because Christianity causes denial and idealism? No! “...because...

  • Walking "the Walk", and Talking "the Talk"

    15 August 2010

    I have had a few earthly “mentors” in my time, those who I have looked to for help in learning to navigate the spiritual realm. Godly women (never mind the varying degrees of Spiritual Maturity, they were ahead of me!) who helped to train me in the “way...

  • Except for Grace, by Which I Stand

    29 September 2010

    This morning, I awoke with the Keith Green song of this title playing in my head. Part of the lyrics lament, “Lord, the feelings are not the same, I guess I'm older, I guess I've changed....”, and in another verse continues the regret, “like Peter, I...

  • Driven or Driver? Which do you choose?

    18 November 2011

    (It is up to us, with a lot of help from our "Friends" - that is if we have the right kind of friends!) The Torah or Commandments or Law of G-d, that was given through Moses, is a complete work. It is self-contained and whole, a unified composition from...

  • A Happy Holiday Acrostic

    12 December 2010

    H ~ is for the Holy Days, some time to set aside, yes for family gatherings, and to settle down inside. A time for a remembrance of what we're grateful for, and that it was God, who set the stage for all of that and more! A ~ is for Atonement – “at-one-ment”...

  • Contemplations on Obedience

    10 November 2010

    Obedience is based on the relationship of the one giving instruction to the one obeying instruction. Obedience exemplifies trust. One can not, will not, and should not obey someone they do not trust! The level of trust determines the level of obedience....
