Signing the Contract!

I am so excited, and I wanted to share it with all of you who have not seen my FB page!  I wrote about my Bible study, The Jewels of Hebrews, last week in the post called Gift of Gab. Mt. Zion Ridge Press will publish it in December 2020. Yay!! It is definitely a…

Breathe

As I was driving home this weekend from my sister’s house, I saw a sign on the overpass with the words, “Are you breathing?” Obviously this sign referred to the senseless death of George Floyd. But, as I thought about it, I also realized that Covid-19 took away the breath of many people. As we…

Is Healing for Real?

Has God healed you from an illness, injury, or some other condition? Do you believe God heals today? My pastor preached a sermon this past Sunday on healing and I thought it was worth discussing on this blog today. In my Bible study on Hebrews, I wrote about Jesus/Yeshua healing us body, soul, and spirit….

A Sign and Seal

This past weekend was Pentecost or the Feast of Shavuot. It is celebrated fifty days after Passover and the death of Jesus/Yeshua. In the Christian church we think of it as the day the Holy Spirit was given to the disciples waiting in the upper room. But the first Pentecost occurred for a different reason….

When I Sin

Today’s post is a little different for me. It’s a poem which comes from a friend, Brita Alaburda, who is very artistic and has a love for words. She loves God, people, poetry, and chocolate cake (: among other things. She is also a fellow Word Weaver. Please let her know what you think of…

Lord, help my unbelief

Since my son was premature, he didn’t hit developmental milestones on time. He was taking his time crawling; he did more rolling to get where he wanted to…

The Struggle is Real

When is the last time you had a good fight? Not a fight with your spouse, or your kids, or even a friend, but against the forces of darkness? Wow, you weren’t expecting that, right? For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers…

More Than a Friend

The heartfelt counsel of a friend    is as sweet as perfume and incense. Proverbs 27:9 NLT I didn’t know I needed a friend like her, but God did. I liked her as soon as I met her. Fifteen years older than me and married with children, Marilyn was a charming woman who smiled with her eyes,…

Will the Real Sabbath Please Stand up?

 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For…
