Ride Through

For those that aren’t aware…one of the deeply embedded Texas institutions is a fast-food chain called Whataburger.  Thousands, if not millions, of people salivate just at the thought.  And, well…the drive through is flexible for other modes of transportation.

Accused of Being Drunk

Most of you know very well the story from Acts 2 when the Ruach fell upon Yeshua’s disciples in the Upper Room.  Throughout years in Christian churches the common narrative described the disciples as those accused of being drunk.  But, is that right?  Read it again.  Isn’t the miracle within the crowd?  Isn’t the miracle in their hearing, each in their own language?  What if those being accused of early morning drunkenness were not the disciples speaking, but those in the crowd claiming to hear the wonders of Elohim and Messiah Yeshua in their own native languages?  Surely each disciple was not speaking a dozen languages individually and simultaneously.  They may have spoken other languages but what if the real miracle was that each hearer heard what was said as if it was just for him?  Something to consider…!

Winding Down the Omer

It’s almost here!  Shavuot!

The Omer count is winding down and soon we’ll observe our first Feast of YHWH in this new location!  We are thankful for safe travels and provision.  Haven’t yet caught up on our rest, so the upcoming Shabbat and Shavuot are the perfect time to refresh.  Praise Him!

Have a blessed Sabbath and Feast!!



Thunder and Rushing Wind

Within mere days of returning to Texas, we have already had two thunderstorms.  Loud violent winds, rain, thunder and lightning.  What a good reminder that not all geographic locations experience this phenomenon.

In this season, the thunderstorm reminds me of the upcoming Feast.  Both in the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai and the pouring forth of the Ruach at the Upper Room, there were similar sights and sounds.  Each event is described much like a thunderstorm.  And, don’t we see our Abba sometimes most powerfully within the midst of life’s storms?

On the morning of the third day, there was thunder, lightning and a thick cloud on the mountain. Then a shofar blast sounded so loudly that all the people in the camp trembled.  Moshe brought the people out of the camp to meet God; they stood near the base of the mountain. Mount Sinai was enveloped in smoke, because Adonai descended onto it in fire — its smoke went up like the smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain shook violently.  As the sound of the shofar grew louder and louder, Moshe spoke; and God answered him with a voice.~~Exodus 19: 16-19

All the people experienced the thunder, the lightning, the sound of the shofar, and the mountain smoking. When the people saw it, they trembled. Standing at a distance, they said to Moshe, “You, speak with us; and we will listen. But don’t let God speak with us, or we will die.”~~Exodus 20: 18-19

The festival of Shavu‘ot arrived, and the believers all gathered together in one place.  Suddenly there came a sound from the sky like the roar of a violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire, which separated and came to rest on each one of them. ~~Acts 2: 1-3 

Just Another Move?

Naturally, there have been others busy moving these days, not just Dear Hubby and yours truly.  There are brethren in Messiah relocating at this same time, and I wish them all a blessed experience.  But how about the other fairly significant move that just happened…?
