 Though he walketh in darkness, And hath no light,
Let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God.

ADONAI RO’EE
 
     Some years ago, while working in an Atlanta office, the day began as any other day, until my boss asked us employees to come to the conference room. Something was up. No one looked happy.
 
     My boss, Allan, asked us if we had heard about Anie over the weekend. We said no. Allan then told us that Anie had been killed in an auto accident. However, not only Anie had been killed, but also her aunt and...

MOORED IN THE HARBOR
 
     Having grown up in Kansas, I find fascination in flying over cities that include ports. Kansas is a land-locked state and I love being near the water. Recently on a flight to Philadelphia, as our plane was descending, I noticed several ships dry-docked. Some looked rusty and old; others looked in good condition. I wondered if the ships were in a state of disrepair or were just dry-docked for the winter. If someone grew up in...

     If we live long enough, we will eventually see our loved ones and friends die. Death is the great leveler as everyone must pass through death’s door. Just as it is exciting to see the birth of a newborn baby, it is sorrow beyond words to sit at the bedside of one who is dying. Often, there are no words...

KEEP LOOKIN' UP!
 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Phil.4:5
     Why are we a people of such extremes? Why is it that I can have a full dinner, then have ice cream for dessert? But no, I do not want just ONE scoop; I want three scoops! Why is it that I can have a closet full of clothes, then see an item and desire it? Aristotle made famous the idea of the Golden Mean, the desirable mid-point...

TZURIS
“An evil one is ensnared by the sin of lips, but the righteous one escapes trouble.”    Proverbs 12:13

The root of this word is Hebrew,  צָרָה, it means trouble, distress, problems, adversity, tribulation, anguish and so on. Most Jewish people know this word and some use it because it truly encompasses those challenges when the days are boulders (not diamonds or stones, thank you, John...

The angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed.
