  • Some Helpful Advice

    17 December 2013

    How I'm feeling? Don't ask! Though you ask from true caring; I'll be tempted to list stuff I shouldn't be sharing! To rehearse all the aches and pains, I'm sadly inclined, instead of just quoting the Word, I might whine! I'm overcoming some symptoms,...

  • A Resolution Worth Making....

    27 December 2013

    Where the Battle is Won or Lost “ If you will return, O Israel,’ says the Lord . . . — Jeremiah 4:1 Our battles are first won or lost in the secret places of our will in God’s presence, never in full view of the world. The Spirit of God seizes me and...

  • Shalom, Shalom - Perfect Peace

    03 January 2014

    Finding Peace in the midst of a raging storm, in the cold dark night, His Love so warm, His Spirit shields us from all harm, His Grace is all we need! Fighting, warring, to walk in Faith, struggling to find that Secret Place, striving to seek His loving...

  • Trying to Walk on One Leg?

    04 January 2014

    I once heard Rev. Hagan say that the “Walk of Faith requires two legs!”. What are those two “Legs” which are required to “Walk in Faith”? Trust and Obedience, also called “faith and works”! Works without faith, which is simply trust in the One being worked...

  • E. G. R.

    05 January 2014

    Extra Grace Required! This phrase has most accurately described my life of late! We are a mere five days into the illustrious new year, and so far we have seen nothing but giants! Oy-Gevault sized giants! Giants of lack, funky and unexplainable physical...

  • Our Only REAL Choice

    09 January 2014

    I'd rather be in God's goodwill, though it mean a prison cell, than blissfully going my own way, on a slippery path to hell! I'd rather face affliction now, with the victory of faith; than frolic in deception that removes me from His Grace. I'd rather...

  • A Psalm of Gratitude

    15 January 2014

    To the Champion of our souls! I'm grateful God, that You are real, that I need not fret o'er how I feel! In faith I firmly will proclaim, Complete deliverance in His Name! Knowing, when all around seems worse, I'm still redeemed from sin's dark curse!...

  • A Birthday Soliloquy:

    27 January 2014

    A Reminiscing, Hope-filled Celebration of My Journey to Life! Birthdays. An individual's “New Year's Day” - when one celebrates the gift of life, and tries not to think about the erosion of time that is unavoidably connected to the whole concept. On the...

  • Fool's Drool, But Will NEVER Rule...

    13 February 2014

    I don't know what it is about these things that touch “that nerve” in me – but almost every time I see this I just HAVE to respond! I am so Thankful that it is not ALL men! If it were I would NOT be happily married – or - married at all - in fact! So...

  • The Broken Vows, The Struggle to Freedom

    12 February 2011

    Tears streaming she picked up the pieces of her broken heart and life, all she wanted now was a quiet place to think until the pain subsided to a manageable level. Alone, disadvantaged by the fact that she had poured all the best years of her life into...

  • Freedom or Anarchy?

    10 February 2011

    When the youth cast off the reason and direction of their God-given authorities, when they struggle against the protection of His ordained boundaries (taught, however deficiently, by those authorities), they will soon find that their resulting “freedom”...

  • Epitaph

    13 June 2011

    Let not my passing bring much relief, nor such a mournful grievance be; But let there be a celebration, of the life I've lived for thee. This Lord is my one desire, may this be my only care, that, when my earthly race is over, those left may sense Your...

  • Living Dust

    11 February 2011

    As Adam, of creation fame, was shaped from dust, and then given name, I too was made again from what was dust, abused and left to rot. Broken far beyond repair, who could have known that He'd be there, gathering particles, piece by piece, the shatterings...

  • Pressing Without Stressing - The Goal

    29 January 2011

    I love the early mornings! I love to sit and write in the quiet hours, when I can hear the voice of God most clearly. I used to be shy about saying that, because some people think you are crazy if you claim to the hear voice of someone you can not see....

  • T'was the Night Before ... Ch...anukah?

    23 December 2011

    T'was the night before Christmas, and Chanukah too - Day Five! And so down at the Synagogue things are coming alive! The Family Chanukiah's will be kindled with care, To celebrate the victory, a "great miracle happened there"! Later, back at Duncanshire...

  • The Valentine's Day Challenge - For Mature Audiences Only!

    14 February 2011

    For years now this phrase has conjured a wild mix of emotions in my inner being. I am a woman, so of course the romantic force is strong with me! But also, I am a woman who has happened to have lived a long and observant life, and hence has detected a...

  • The Broken Vows, His Story....

    14 February 2011

    Watching her walk away a wave of sorrow engulfed him. He was truly sorry that he had not kept the vows he made. He had meant to this time! He had thought, just for a moment, while they were there, under the arbor in the garden, looking at each other with...

  • The Broken Vows

    10 February 2011

    She sat across from him, as though looking at him, but staring past him, almost through him. She had hoped to be “loved and cherished” but she had received only bitterness that felt like hatred, and reviling that felt like anything but “cherishing”. She...

  • “And The Two Shall Become....?”

    27 February 2011

    The Two Become One - Not the wife becomes a shadow - Not the husband becomes the invisible man! But both are intended to be made into the image of Christ, who is the glue in the center! We meld into Him, as both work toward leaving their old ways, and...

  • Righteousness vs. Religion

    01 March 2011

    Fear of sin does not produce righteousness! The reverence for, and faith in, the One who has overcome sin is the only thing that produces righteousness. Not even the fear of offending God produces righteousness, rather it produces a cold, technical, unfeeling,...

  • A Restless Blog

    04 March 2011

    I sit here, trying to think of something to blog about. I rarely feel so little stimulation or inspiration. I am tired. Thankfully it is the Sabbath, a time of rest. The problem is that in our culture, the weekend does not necessarily lend itself to restful...

  • Insomniac's Dream

    01 March 2011

    As restless thoughts consume the night, and keeps sleep distant, out of sight, I turn my troubled mind to You, Knowing that You'll see me through. As drama replays in my head, of all that has been done and said, I turn and cry out for the grace, to stay...

  • Yom Teruah ~ The Feast of Trumpets ~ A Call to Teshuvah

    29 September 2011

    Teshuvah, a longing deep inside, one wants to return home, to abide, to return to Father's firm embrace, to His loving, searching, smiling face. Prodigals, we take and use, plunder, spoil and abuse His blessings and inheritance, on fleshly urgings, happenstance....

  • Don't Offense Me In!

    23 March 2012

    It has been observed that, "A grave is nothing but a rut with both ends filled in."! I would like to observe further that this proverbial "rut" is real, it is called religion. It is a nasty habit that is much like a rocking chair, there is movement alright,...

  • Revolution, Acknowledged and Applied

    25 February 2011

    What has been pedaled as submission in “church”, (at least the majority of the organizations which bear that title in the south eastern U.S.A.) is a thinly veiled chauvinism, based on a great and ancient evil, which has come to be known, in our times,...
