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.

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…

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…

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…
