A Closer Walk: Information Age

I don’t suppose there has ever been a time like the one we are living in, where there is so much information being disseminated from so many sources. Movies, television, internet, books, newspapers, magazines, even our phones are now in on the act! Hundreds of thousands of voices, all vying for our attention in the…

Broken To Bless

I think it was Ruth Graham who wrote, “…there is a broken heart in every pew.” Many years down the road, with many a “breaking-experience” under my belt, I can say a healthy amen. We in The Church are “a building” built from broken things. I recall when I was the editor of my women’s…

Beloved Prodigal… (Part 1 ~ bat Shuvah)

  The road you’re on is not an easy one. (I should know.) I have been down your road. It is for that reason I wrote this book. I am hoping it will plant some seeds of trust in that heart of yours. The Jewish would call me “bat Shuvah”—she who has returned. I have returned. To my Abba-Father God. To…

Denominational Squabbling Or What This Gospel Isn’t

Denominational Made-up-Minds. (Oh baby!) Of all the things in The Church, perhaps this is the thing that scares me the most. This blind prejudice to, “We have always done it this way.” or “That is what my daddy believed, what my mama believed, and by golly, it’s what I believe!” Well… okay then! Pardon my seeing this Glorious…

The Infinite Value of One

We live in a day when everyone seems to be chasing BIG numbers. (We measure by numbers.) Big numbers seem to say, “This person is important.” or “You need to own that thing that everyone else is buying.” Big numbers seem to equal a BIG deal. Bigger equals better—that’s the world’s mantra! But remember? The…

Golden Wings

I used to think so long ago “I am a worm and very low” I could not see nor understand, This destiny—with plans so grand! ~~~ But here we are! (You ‘n me…) We’re skimming clouds—bold and free! I’ve wings to fly, to sail, to go… I’m soaring now—beyond rainbows! ~~~ Dancing up among the…

The Moment

  The call has  come from Spirit’s flow, Up to the rainbow tops to go. Cocoon breaks its last restricting hold… As moonbeams shimmer on wings of gold. ~~~ A moment now—to understand, That darkened cell was sacred plan; To make me into “vessel” new, With messages—not for a few… ~~~ Oh, no! This plan…
