  • The Great Holiday Lack-Attack

    24 November 2014

    (Which could also be known as - “The Blue Christmas Syndrome”) I was walking through my local “Sam's Club”, where I had gone to get the items I need (which I buy from there because they have the best deal on those items) to complete my grocery needs for...

  • Thoughts on LIFE

    09 November 2014

    Some things I have learned . . . First of all it is an unqualified gift. It does not have to feel like a gift. It simply is. Therefore, choosning it is recommended, and it is best lived to as full a capacity as one can manage! It is fleeting, undependable,...

  • America: "The Land of the Freebie, and the Self-Conquered Slave"?

    05 November 2014

    I have taken the liberty of rewriting our national anthem, adjusting it to fit our current realities, I've entitled it: The Star Spangled Shambles (To the original tune) Oy vey! Can you see, through the flashing black-lights, what we proudly, once hailed,...

  • Overcoming Feelings By Faith

    07 November 2014

    Another title for this writing could be, “The Grace by Which I'm Saved! ” “Saved” being defined as … Healed, Delivered, Transformed Into a Holy Being , Etc. I don't think any of us realize just how much actual “Grace” we use in a day. Grace has a lot...

  • It's Enough Already!

    21 October 2014

    “ But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith . . .” ~ Jude 20 “ ...But Godliness with contentment is great gain.” ~ I Timothy 6:6 The entire book of Proverbs.... “ Most of us develop our Christianity along the lines of our own nature,...

  • Keep Calm, and Keep Christ in Christians!

    11 December 2014

    I find the whole bit about “Keeping Christ in Christmas” rather ludicrous for several reasons. Don't get me wrong, I understand the sentiment! What good is a holiday which supposedly celebrates His birth, if He is not exalted? I get that. And at this...

  • When Faith Seems to Fail

    17 October 2014

    We've all been there. That place where we've had our faith stretched out as far as it can go, when we've given it all we had, and somehow it just didn't seem to cut the muster. When that person we knew or loved didn't get healed, our child still went...

  • Questions From Ferguson

    02 December 2014

    “What if your son was that 'thug'?” , she asked, eyes searching for truth in my heart. “What if it had been your boy the police had gunned down, tearing your world all apart?!” I answered her softly, “I'd have grieved him twice, once when he left behind...

  • The Best Tale of All Time ~ Part Eight: New Beginnings...

    10 December 2014

    The Creation of Our World, Its Tumble Into Darkness, and Its Redemption Into Light! (In which The Earth-Folk Get Another Chance to “Choose Life”!) Now, we reach the conclusion of this tale, though not the end of it, certainly – there is no end in this...

  • So, What's the Beef with Pork?

    03 April 2015

    Overcoming The Gradual Profaning of Our Faith I truly believe that we are at liberty to do whatever we are led by the Spirit to do, with the Word confirming that leading, though I also think that the bit with Peter and the sheet are very liberally interpreted!...

  • A Holiday Observation ~ With Greetings from Duncanshire!

    24 December 2014

    Good Morning Chavarim! Today is not only “Christmas Eve”, but it happens to be the last day of “The Feast of Dedication”! This feast is spoken of in John 10:22 – in which Yeshua declared Himself to be the Light of the World! I do not find it coincidental...

  • A Psalm of Shabbot

    11 April 2015

    Shabbot is now approaching, the sun is bowing low, And paints a glorious sunset, bathing earth in its warm glow. The evening is upon us, thus ends another week, And now it's time to just reflect, our loving God to seek. A time of rest and sweetness, considering...

  • Resurrection! A Tale of First Fruits

    05 April 2015

    (First Fruits - Reishit Katzir) It had been a long, weary, arduous few days. Like a treacherous carnival ride, the ups and downs of those days had left them exhausted, the emotional highs and lows had left them drained, flattened, like road kill. Hiding...

  • An Open Letter To Those Whom I Cherish Most:

    27 January 2015

    (from “Life in Duncanshire: The M.O.M. Journals”) Because life has this maddeninly annoying way of ending without notice, I felt led to express some things plainly, which I have not had opportunity to express of late – just to be sure that they get said,...

  • Lessons From The Press . . .

    25 January 2015

    "Between the Rock and Hard Spot" . . . From this week's Torah reading (parshas Bo) Exodus 10 God (the Rock) vs. Pharoah (the hard spot); featuring the Israelites, who have found themselves caught in between, by their lack of following plain, simple instructions....

  • A Prayer From a Fallen Warrior

    20 December 2014

    A Cry For Help... Avenu Malkenu, My Father My King! I've come this day, Your praise to sing! And I've come, my troubles to lay down, to try and keep that promised crown, of righteousness and faith so true, that comes from, then returns to, You! I've fallen,...

  • (Not) Running on Empty

    01 April 2015

    The Art of Being Good Stewards of Ourselves As some of you have perhaps noticed, of late I have been facing recurring, and seemingly relentless, health issues. Not of the super alarming, life-threatening kind (though if not addressed it would no doubt...

  • R.E.S.P.E.C.T! This is what it means to me!

    08 April 2015

    (Part Two of the Dialogue on Authority Abuse/Misuse) I would have to say that the many strongholds - which Iwere developed because of the abuses to which I was subjected while growing up - was the single biggest deterrent to my spiritual growth, which...

  • "If I Could Save Time in a Bottle...."

    24 March 2015

    Today is our 32 nd anniversary! We have spent most of our lives together at this point, and it has been both “hell on wheels”, and “heaven on speed-dial”! Thirty-two years ago today, we began our journey together as “The Duncan Family” - with a Justice...

  • R.E.S.P.E.C.T.!

    08 April 2015

    (In which I address the abuse of spiritual authority – in my life in particular, and in the “Church” at large.) I know that I “do go on” about man made institutions, a lot, along with the inevitable abuse of what is called “authority” within their ranks....

  • The Great Disconnect

    05 November 2013

    (In the lives of so-called "believers") It is written in the Word that "The Just Shall Live by Faith", it is found at least once in both the Old and the "New" Covenants. "Faith" seems to be defined - Scripturally speaking - in the willingness to take...

  • From Hell-bent to Heaven-bound...A Wedding Tale

    24 March 2014

    Thirty-One Years ago today, March 24 th , 1983, I stood trembling in a laundry room - in a Town-house at the West Gate of Stone Mountain, Georgia - ironing a white cotton shirt with lace down the front to go with my gingham hippie skirt. The skirt was...

  • Reminiscing in the Park

    22 October 2014

    The azure blue of Autumn sky, with geese and ducklings squawking by, Bright leaves that drift from shaking trees, white clouds that scatter with the breeze, Delicious breezes stir warm air, and tempt us to forget all care. Church bells from lofty steeples...

  • Priorities Unmasked

    23 June 2014

    The very God of the Universe has made Himself available to us on an unlimited basis, but we, mere creations of His, can not “find the time” to commune with Him daily?! Is there a more perplexing or disturbing reality possible? How absurd to consider this...

  • New Year, New Opportunity

    01 January 2011

    It may seem cliche', but I always think of that great quote by Minnie Harkins about "The Gate of the Year". There is something spiritual, something intriguing about the new year. I know that in the concept of time, technically one day just winds into...
