  • 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....

  • Walking the "Straight" and Narrow?

    30 May 2012

    Lately I find that I have been much in thought about this seemingly sudden attention to the homosexual issue. My spirit is stirred within me. I hear many people saying things like, "why is this such a big deal all of a sudden?" I think I heard grown-ups...

  • Responsibility - the Road to Adventure?

    11 May 2012

    "Thus says Adonai, Yet again it will be heard in this place, of which you say, it is a waste, without man and without beast, that in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem are desolate, without man and without inhabitant and without beast,...

  • Funny. But WRONG!"

    29 August 2012

    This phrase, coined by Steve Martin, the once reigning king of "Funny but Wrong", is a phrase that unfortunately, all too often, reflects the level of humor at the Duncan home. Those who are well acquainted with us know that this is "sad but true". However,...

  • The Race of Life - Are We Runners or Spectators?

    09 July 2012

    Happy American Independence day! The 4th of July. As we celebrate to this holiday of Independence as a G-d fearing nation, honoring those who gave "the last full measure" for our freedom, there are some things we should ponder individually. What are we...

  • The Importance of Accurately Discerning Our Spiritual Roots

    13 August 2012

    The question for most of us is not whether we are part of something bigger. I think the question that is becoming increasingly insistent is closer to, “What is it, exactly, that we are part of? I agree with my Rabbi, who says that it does not matter which...

  • Method in the Seeming Madness

    29 June 2012

    (A meditation on Matthew 5:30) As marble maimed to make fine art, please maim this flesh to make thine heart! By gentle hand or violent skill, though You must slay me, I love you still. I know You have an end in mind, Your perfect Character, in me, to...

  • Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit...

    27 July 2012

    ...Who Know that We Are Born This Way... Part Two: This is the month of Av on the Jewish calendar, and this Shabbot marks the date of many calamities in the Jewish History, the most notable being the burning of the Temple. Therefore there is great mourning...

  • Blessed are the Poor in Spirit...

    21 August 2012

    (Who Know We Were "Born this way", And Are NOT Proud of It!) Part Three In the passage that has become known as "The Beatitudes", Yeshua was preaching to the every day, working class, man and woman. His message was directed to those who laid claim to...

  • Well, Well......

    23 December 2012

    This morning I find myself trying to struggle through a mine-field of feelings to get to Truth! I want to be a conduit that carries clean water that flows through the deepest wells of "living water", but, honestly, I feel more like a run-off for the local...

  • Disciples or Deserters?

    02 July 2012

    To answer this question I want to tell you a story. Once there was a highly respected teacher. Everyone wanted his attention, everyone wanted on to be on the waiting list to be under his instruction. He had the reputation of being the best tutor in the...

  • A Sabbath Meditation~

    29 September 2012

    Shabbot Shalom. The poetic syntax of those words alone begins the flow of peace, as we choose to meditate on the true meaning and intention of these words, as we opt to take this opportunity to wind down our week and prepare to honor our G-d. I sit in...
