Day 1 – ULB (Lighthouse and Matzah)

Photoshoot with Isaac this morning at the local coffee house. We used to do this in college at the photo booths…. remember that? 🙂 They remodeled since we’ve been here – threw Isaac for a loop! I liked the happy … Continue reading

Shabbat Travel

I always stress about what I post about how we spend our Shabbats. Why? Probably because I don’t know who all my audience is and how things will be received. I know that Scattered Israel is all over the board when it comes to how we are to spend Shabbat. Some people get pretty nit-picky and judgmental about it…. Continue reading

Despite Shabbat Rain

My sister-in-law told me about this little place and since it was raining outside and too cold for a hike we decided to check it out. It was the most amazing little local organic bakery! How can you go wrong with barley brownies, spicy pesto avocado toast, Ruwanda coffee and ancient Purple Egyptian Barley artisan bread? Continue reading

Shabbat Bliss

Our Shabbat afternoon was full of Hawaiian treats from Hadassah’s Tiki Hut, watching home movies and photos from this past year. We do this so that we could remember the life we lived, be grateful for it and see where Yahovah showed up in the beauty and pain. Continue reading

Shabbat Hell

Okay, so I’m going to be honest, the commanded STOP doesn’t mean that REST is just a given. And if the way Shabbat is being spent in our home doesn’t change I’m going to scream.

If I left for the day or didn’t say a thing then the family would probably be content in how Shabbat is being spent. Continue reading

Shabbat and Why We Need a Jubilee Year

I really need this. Almost as much as I need water, sleep and food (and sun). If I don’t get this I feel like I will wither up and die. I sure as hell won’t be able to create or continue in ministry anymore. I have felt like I have been “squeezing water out of a turnip!” Maybe people feel like 50 is “over-the-hill” because they don’t actually see anything good after that. Just more of the same. Why can’t we stop to give our hearts what our hearts are screaming for — a break, a re-boot a chance to consider and change our lives? Continue reading

Traveling and Shabbat

I’ve always wondered how does the “ask and you shall receive” command work? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. What I discovered is that I was asking for the wrong thing. The Ruach (Spirit of Yah) taught me how to be utterly confident in the outcome of my request by being utterly confident in what Yahweh’s will actually is. Continue reading
