  • Tzedecha, the Joy of Giving

    28 August 2011

    We are commanded to give to the poor, to help relieve their sorrow, We are told to freely give and not to make them borrow. We are promised recompense from G-d who sees our heart, If with our many blessings we are not loathe to part. If we share freely...

  • The "Best Defense" is to Stay Free of Offense...

    26 August 2011

    ...Spiritually speaking that is, but oy vey(!), staying free of offense is really multiplied being on Facebook! Especially since this has become a place where G-d's idea of speaking the truth in love {which to my mind is interpreted as telling folks the...

  • Never Again!

    17 July 2011

    (In Honor of Lieby Kletzky) Lock your doors and hide your babies, Certify and arm your ladies! There's a war which we must win, our battle cry is, "never again!". The war is evil against good, which it would stamp out if it could, knowing not the irony...

  • "I told you so...", One of The Repercussions of Stubborn Living.

    18 April 2012

    "I told you so..." Is an expression reserved for the foolish ones who encounter truth and wisdom but press past it to learn the hard way! I have said it before and I will say it again, experience is NOT the best teacher! She is just the one that most...

  • Why I Should Not Pay Too Much Attention to the News...

    16 July 2011

    Recently I have obtained an application on my lap top that has breaking news from the middle east, or news that somehow affects Israel, etc. And then there are links that different people post on Face Book! But the issue with this is that all news is...

  • The Way to Live the Good Life

    24 April 2012

    (From Psalms/Tehellim 34: 12-15) Who is the man who desires life and loves length of days t hat he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of Adonai...

  • An Ode to JOY (Simcha)

    12 October 2011

    ~ The Discipline (Mikvah/Mitzvah) of Joy during Sukkot (Tabernacles) Today is the first day of Sukkot, The Feast of Tabernacles. So, since I am on a personal learning curve (to catch up to this train/caravan which Gene and I have been following from afar...

  • Atonement Contemplated

    09 October 2011

    I am writing this on the day after Yom Kippur, the Highest of High Holy Days (which is translated "The Day of Atonement", in English). As one who is new to the Messianic belief structure I find that I am in "analysis-mode" today. Particularly, I am analyzing...

  • A Good Day for Jubilee?

    31 August 2011

    Ha Yovel, is it today? When lack and debt move far away? Will it appear, oh can it be, that it will come today for me? As days of old, as we know well, one day Joseph came from his cell, and that dream, which gave him hope, to suffer patiently and cope,...

  • Are We THERE Yet?!

    21 May 2013

    (The long awaited...) Part Four of the Motherhood Saga.... Back in the day, a country singer named Buck Owens sang a little ditty about difficult personal relationships called, "I've Gotta Tiger by the Tail". I think, if we change the words just a tad,...

  • The Anguish of Hope.

    11 June 2011

    Anguish. It is the word that most closely reflects how I am feeling at the moment. On the one hand I chide myself for being overly dramatic, self-pitying, and full of doubt and unbelief. And besides, I can think of at least five people by name and face,...

  • A Testament to Faithfulness...

    24 March 2013

    ... Thirty Years and Counting! Our marriage was made in heaven! However, it was then forged in the fires of Mordor! It has survived power struggles - reminiscent of the "Ring of Power" that lives in our lower natures - to become a unity that glorifies...

  • A Truly Blessed New Year

    02 January 2012

    A New Year! On the Hebrew calendar we are well into the new year marked 5772, on that other calendar we are in the second day of 2012. I don't think that the pagans meant to mark the coming and death of our Hebrew Messiah as the beginning of their calendar,...

  • Failing or Prevailing? It All Depends on the Perspective!

    11 October 2011

    "Genesis 32:27 & 28: "Then the man (angel of the Lord, disguised as a man?) said, 'Let me go, because it's daybreak.' But Ya'acov said, 'I won't let you go unless you bless me!' ... (Then, after asking his name the man said), 'Your name will no longer...

  • The Processes of Teshuvah - Part I

    23 September 2011

    In this season approaching the Days of Awe, we give ourselves to the examination of the Ruach Ha Kodesh in order to be sure that our hearts are right before Adonai Elohim, The Most Holy G-d! And as we turn our attention toward Holiness we find, that in...

  • Catching Up my Devotion - in more ways than one!

    08 January 2012

    As I got into my devotionals this morning I found that I had skipped the last few days. I had read my Torah Portions, and a variety of writings concerning those, but my old faithful friend, My Utmost for His Highest had been overlooked as I got into the...

  • Another Sukkot Come and Gone

    27 October 2011

    Another Sukkot Come and Gone The last but not the least of the appointed feasts, a chance to camp with G-d under the stars! To wine and dine and dance, with candles and romance, remembering how He has brought us far! In temporary dwellings, the covering...

  • Highway to Hell?

    24 January 2012

    "The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions!" (This proverb was taken from St. Bernard of Clairvaux about 1150, "L'enfer est plein de bonnes volontés ou désirs" translated more accurately, "Hell is full of good intentions or wishes"), But many folk...

  • It's A Process People, Not a One-time Gig!

    10 January 2012

    "...to open their eyes; so that they will turn from darkness to light, from the power of the adversary to G-d, and thus receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who have been separated for holiness by putting their trust in Me." ~ Shaul (Paul),...

  • Overly Righteous?

    29 January 2012

    Recently, because of my search for deeper Spiritual Truth, I have subscribed to a teaching site which contains the writings and teachings of Torah from an Orthodox perspective. It is not Messianic, and so all that they propound does not always resonate,...

  • An Unlikely Tale of Thanksgiving

    24 November 2011

    There is a burden for souls which is keeping me from my slumber tonight. But not just any souls. I am drawn particularly to intercede for souls that have been cruelly separated from the love of their heavenly father by a vicious lie. This lie can come...

  • WHOLE + BLAMELESS=SALVATION

    09 January 2012

    "And I pray G-d your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless." I Thess. 5:23 My WHOLE spirit. My WHOLE soul. My WHOLE body. Preserved blameless. The ramifications and implications of this Scripture are staggering to me! The spirit man becomes...

  • Food for Thought, Indeed!

    06 February 2012

    I have noticed that every time Ha Shem wanted to prove the loyalty of His people, Israel, He hit them where it hurt! He made a boundary about food! Beginning in the Garden of Eden, there was ONE Fruit that must not be touched, then in the desert - after...

  • Weathering Life Victoriously

    31 January 2012

    Avinu, (My Father), When the weight of cares are threatening to overcome Your grace, When the shadows pass between us, and I can not see Your face, It is then I bow in worship, it is then I sing Your praise, for it never fails to lift the weights, and...

  • By the Grace of G-d I Am What I Am! So, What Am I?

    30 November 2011

    "His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain." I Corinthians 15:10 Can I say that this morning with any kind of integrity? I have said it tentatively before, I have said it hopefully before, I have declared it "by faith" before, or by something...
