  • The Good Fight of Faith - A Personal View

    07 February 2012

    "Revelations" seem to come and go, some days at blinding speed, It seems I best remember what I thought I knew, when I've got all I think I need. It all seems quite one-sided to me, a "human-condition" I fear, It would seem that I get blind-guided by...

  • Beyond "Counting the Cost"

    30 January 2012

    We are instructed to "count the cost" before signing on to follow Yeshua, but too many of us stop right there. How many times have we listened but were not sure if we heard correctly, perhaps because we did not like what we heard? How many times have...

  • What part of "YIELD!" Do we not understand?

    09 April 2012

    Those of us who have taken the time to familiarize ourselves with scripture, whether it was from curiosity, dedication or desperation, have come to love the list in Galatians which lists the attributes of "the fruit of the Spirit". "Fruit", meaning that...

  • Twenty-Ninth Anniversary! March 24th, 2012

    24 March 2012

    Twenty-nine years, & we've only begun. We've raised four lovely daughters, & three handsome sons. Twenty-nine years! Who'd have dreamed it could be? Who'd have dreamed, we'd have had seven kids, you and me? Who'd have even imagined us as parents back...

  • House Cleaning 101

    18 October 2012

    When we are expecting an honored guest, when we have invited someone over whom we want to impress, a prospective "Boss" for example, we do not just methodically, mindlessly clean! We get down to the nitty-gritty! We survey the areas much more critically,...

  • Is There an Intercessor in the House?

    31 March 2012

    ("Fix us Father, Fix us!") Due to another mystifying bout with depression I missed reading my devotional the day before yesterday. I had gotten up to spend time in the Word, as is my practice. I would like to say that I regularly spend time in the presence...

  • Self-Realization Reconsidered

    02 March 2012

    Over the past few days my mentor from the "other side", Brother Oswald Chambers (his writings being illuminated by the Ruach ha Kodesh) has been delving into what he calls the "undeviating question". That "question" is the one which Adonai put to Peter,...

  • Freedom From Regret

    04 November 2012

    What is it about funerals and memorial services to suddenly make people forget the bad and cling to the good in the one who is now gone? Suddenly only the good attributes come into clear focu,s and the bad ones fade, becoming null and void. Suddenly we...

  • Watchman, What of the Night?

    05 March 2012

    There were three thoughts rolling around in the head this morning demanding answers! At first they seemed unrelated, and disconnected, but they are beginning to form into one solid warning - "You are not ready for what is coming!" I hear strongly the...

  • Singing the Post-Election - "I can't believe they ate the WHOLE Thing!" - Blues, Y'all!

    07 November 2012

    Well, this morning, again, we are singing "The Blues" in more ways than one! lol Oy vey! I can't believe they did it again! Somehow, with the board showing overwhelming "red", "blue" still won! (If you want to consider such skull-duggery "winning"! Seriously!...

  • But!? Why Would G-d Judge America?! Part III

    08 May 2012

    If America dies it will be from Pride. No, not "Gay Pride"! The cause of death will be the pride of G-d's own hard-hearted, thick-headed people! Who have opened the way for all of this strife and grief , and have stubbornly provoked it into existence...

  • Night Races

    16 April 2012

    Running, running, in my dreams, twisted faces, silent screams, people running in the night, from faceless fears, and nameless plight. Tormented ones, who run to me, as though I could set them free? Running, running through my dreams, tearful faces, crowds...

  • What Part of "Good News" Do We Not Understand?

    26 April 2012

    Recently my girls were downtown for the monthly "Night on the Town", and said that there was a man "preaching" who disturbed them so much that they had to question him, and to answer him. He was preaching against sin - well, okay, that is not so bad....

  • Motherhood 101

    13 May 2012

    If you were to combine emotional whiplash with a psychological roller coaster ride, If you could experience darkness and light at the same time, or heaven and hell, simultaneously; If you could explain away all the contradictions and ironies that puzzle...

  • The Process of Developing Value

    08 February 2012

    ( in Diamonds and Women) Recently someone posted something on face book, one of those "poster" things, that everyone seems to resonate with as something which has a bit of recognizable truth. This one said simply, "A Diamond is a bit of carbon-dust that...

  • A Meditation on Holiness

    11 April 2012

    Holiness. The writing which I was reading this morning stated plainly that one's holiness is the standard by which we assess how much of the resurrection power we are walking in! I find that rather disturbing actually, when I think of how many things...

  • Fools Drool!

    18 May 2012

    Okay, I KNOW that Proverbs says that we should not answer a fool according to his folly, but every so often one comes through that I just can not ignore! Sorry. The work is still in progress. Supposedly this is all said in light hearted fun anyway. Well,...

  • Where There is no Vision.....

    09 May 2012

    "Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, Or what's a heaven for?" ~ Oswald Chambers Brother Chambers is at it again! Today's devotional reading holds one of my most cherished quotes! But not only that, today its motivational tone drives the goad...

  • But?! Why Would G-d Judge America? Part II

    07 May 2012

    There is a lot of trying to "reinvent the wheel" in this nation, everything from constantly changing or perverting the meaning of everyday words to an attempt at the entire reconstruction of history! Added to that mayhem, we have been trying for years...

  • Toward Teshuvah, the Fruit of Shavuot!

    23 May 2012

    If daily I still face defeat, my trust in G-d is incomplete; For He the victor works in me, to lead me in great victory! Instead of fretting over waves, I should steadfastly seek the One who saves; Instead of speaking what else I see, I should Shout His...

  • M-T-V to M-T-NEST... What is Wrong with this Picture?!

    10 May 2012

    It seems like just yesterday when Gene and I were newly married, and making love to the sounds and muted light of MTV coming from the television! The years have rolled so furiously by, gradually the music of MTV was replaced with worship music of our...

  • Work, for the night is coming?

    29 July 2012

    For some it is already here. Another friend of ours has slipped from this realm of time into eternity, seemingly overnight. Actually, in our experience it was within in a few hours! We did know that he had been fighting cancer for the last month or so...

  • The Proper Timing and Tone of Teshuvah

    13 June 2012

    Taken from Parasha 37: Shlach L'Kha (Send on your behalf) Found in Numbers 13:1-15:41 (But I got stuck in 14:20-45 so far...) Plainly put, the proper timing of Teshuvah is when the Ruach ha Kodesh points out our sin, and the proper tone is one of humble...

  • Impressions from Today's Entry of "My Utmost for His Highest"

    08 August 2012

    Today the devotional was taken from Luke 1:35, wherein the angel announced the coming of Messiah to the one who would bear Him saying, "This holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of G-d." Brother Chambers, as always, has some...

  • In Honor of the Day

    18 June 2012

    Father's Day 2012 If all father's were like my Father G-d, the world would not be so cold, so dark and so odd, for there would be no hearts broken, abandoned and torn, no children forsaken, in terror, forlorn. My Father's all power, all wisdom, all love....
