  • The Ancient Wisdom of Consistency

    22 February 2013

    "Try? There is no 'try'! Do , or do not!" ~ Yoda (the creators of whom were obviously reflecting a bit of "ancient wisdom", which was most likely borrowed from the Torah - an example of which follows...) "Choose - today - whom you will serve." ~ God (And...

  • The Popular Philosphy of "Karma"

    01 November 2012

    Today there is a lot said about "Karma". This has become the socially accepted term which is tolerated by the masses and acknowledged by those who consider themselves to be intellectual and more "with it". It is considered to be a "non-religious" term,...

  • Spiritual Analogies from the Avengers

    16 September 2012

    Our family went and watched the Avengers last evening, fun times. For me this is definitely a movie that has more "adventure" than I generally like, but thankfully it was well done and very enjoyable. I couldn't help but come away with some notes on scriptural...

  • The Fragility of Time

    10 November 2012

    Does anyone besides me forget that you are "aging"? I mean, we all realize of course that we are growing older, I guess. Seemingly incessant birthdays provide this awareness, if nothing else! Yet, for all of that I tend to be often startled by the signs...

  • Would the Last American Out Please Bring the Flag????

    08 November 2012

    Okay - I know, we are tired of talking about it. So - if you just can't bear it right now, I understand, don't read it! Go back to your little shells of denial and continue your games of let's pretend, and let it get four years worse if you want to! But...

  • On the Subject of Secession and Civil Disobedience - Part Two

    17 November 2012

    The Spirit of God has been crying out, for decades now, II Chronicles 7:14! "If MY people who are called by MY Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways; Then I will hear from Heaven, forgive their sin, and...

  • Here Comes the Judge!?

    01 September 2012

    (Will the Real Judge of the Universe Please Stand Up?) The problems come between us and G-d when we unwittingly fall into judgment of Him over some seeming discrepancy between what we thought He said, and what actually happened in the realm of our limited...

  • On the Subject of Secession and Civil Disobedience . Third and Last Part

    18 November 2012

    Sorry to be redundant, but until we get it the Spirit will keep saying this - it is time we finally faced up to the fact that we can't fix this! Not with the tools we have been using! There is, of course, a time for "Civil Disobedience", a time to take...

  • The Boundary-Line Which is Hidden in G-d

    31 October 2012

    This "Mystery Boundary" is actually no real mystery at all! It is, in fact, very plainly stated! It is said to be our Refuge, and described as our defense against the enemy! It is said to be our place of safety and contentment! Obedience to this one commandment...

  • Living in the Last Days - Again???

    09 November 2012

    First from Brother Oswald Chambers... "Abraham (though he acted in obedience) did not choose the sacrifice. Always guard against self-chosen service for God; self-sacrifice may be a disease. If God has made your cup sweet, drink it with grace; if He has...

  • The Gospel (Good News) According to George Bailey

    19 November 2012

    For those perhaps not familiar with the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" , it is one of the most revered traditional "Christmas/Holiday" flicks around. In its day it was such a "feel good" kind of movie, that everyone tuned it in once a year, and many still...

  • On the Subject of Secession and Civil Disobedience ...

    16 November 2012

    ... in Our Post-Modern Times Part One: First of all, does anyone in this nation even know the meaning of the word "Civil" anymore? And secondly - isn't it sort of soon after the "election" to be talking drastic measures like "secession"? Have we even...

  • The Color Purple, the New Color of Unity?

    12 November 2012

    Purple, known, in some religious circles to be the color of royalty, is derived from the the mixing of red and blue, by combining two primary colors, indivisible elements, the joining of which makes a hue which has become representative of genuine (God...

  • "In God We Trust!" ??

    10 December 2012

    Recently there has been a huge uproar as this worthy motto, "In God we Trust!", seems to be fading from or sliding off the edges of our monetary system! But I must observe that, honestly, it was only a matter of time! First of all, I am not sure that...

  • Chanukah - The Festival of Dedication/Lights

    14 December 2012

    (What does it mean to us, the believer!?) It is NOT just a time to eat fried foods, consume chocolate and gamble - um-er- spin the dreidel! It is not just time to light some candles and listen to somewhat lame, inadequately produced, (though increasingly...

  • From the Heart; An Open Letter to My Faithful Readers....

    21 November 2012

    I felt that I needed to write an explanation of where I am coming from. Most of my readers know me well enough to understand what drives me, I think, but many may not! I am a passionate person, and so I express what I believe passionately! That does not...

  • An Open Letter to Our Esteemed President

    27 November 2012

    Dear President Obama; I am writing to you because I am conflicted. I beseech you to consider my observations with all seriousness, for I have seen some things that I believe you may find helpful. On the one hand, like many Americans, I am greatly alarmed...

  • On the Subject of HOLY Matrimony

    20 November 2012

    Recently we witnessed the sweetest wedding, as one of the friends of our older children got married. This is that a bitter-sweet time of life, as the eaglets all start flying out of the nests. This wedding was unique in that it has the mark of purity...

  • Am I a Good Child of God?

    15 November 2012

    The Joyful Trust of Obedience vs. the Dreadful Doubt of Disobedience "Obedience is the natural state of the child", says Brother Chambers. And I have observed that it is also the happiest state! It is interrupted by disobedience at times, but then loving...

  • A Perspective on the Recent Pain

    15 December 2012

    As our nation staggers, at the pain of the most recent horrific incidence, I am prone to ponder the different reactions to this crime, as compared to the reactions to the daily crimes of destruction which are always going on in Israel. Israeli parents,...

  • Hey, It's Not the End of the World or Anything!

    22 December 2012

    Will we ever learn? Apparently the Mayans "world" ended a while back, so they get an F-- in prophecy! Many are scoffing and subtly grousing because it is not the end of the world! lol As though they expected it to be - and are disappointed! There were...

  • Merry #@&*%^! Christmas! ! !

    03 December 2012

    Okay, so what is the big hairy deal about whether we choose to say "Happy Holiday s " (implying that more than one holiday is actually going on here, at this time...) or "Merry Christmas"? As far as the whole deal about "Keeping Christ in Christmas" in...

  • "And forgive us our debts...."

    29 November 2012

    " As we forgive those who are indebted against us ." Wow! Does that imply what it sounds like to me? Is there, perhaps, a prerequisite to receiving forgiveness for our sin? Is there some measuring device that says, "well, you only forgave this little...

  • "I'll Have a Blue Christmas (life, existence) Without You"!

    24 December 2012

    For all the merry red and green, a lot of "blue" is on my scene! That lonely feeling that I get, when I give way, and start to fret! I fret for what our children think, to them, I fear, I often "stink", they don't "approve" the mom I've been? I've not...

  • More About the Peace and Prize of Overcoming

    07 December 2012

    It is time we learn what Yeshua meant when He said, "In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world." He was NOT saying, that there is no more for us to do, because He has done it all! He was saying, "I have...
