So husbands ought also to love their own wives

as their own bodies.

He who loves his own wife loves himself; 

for no one ever hated his own flesh,

but nourishes and cherishes it,

just as Christ also does the church,  

because we are members of His body. 

For this reason a man shall leave his father

and mother and shall be joined to his wife, 

and the two shall become one flesh.

This mystery is great;

but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.

Ephesians 5:24-28  (NASB)

  One man and one woman joined in marriage  

  compared with relationship of  

  Christ with His Church  


The honey bee is responsible for 80 percent of pollination worldwide.

Bee populations have been falling fast around the world,

and dropped an alarming 23%

in the U.Slast winter.

A strong and growing body of evidence points to exposure

to a class of neurotoxic pesticides called neonicotinoids

the fastest-growing and most widely used class of

synthetic pesticides

as a key contributing factor to bee declines.

. . .  three of the leading pesticide corporations -

BayerSyngentaand Monsanto -  

are engaged in a massive public relations disinformation

campaign to distract the public and policymakers from

thinking that pesticides might have something to do 

with bee death and destruction.

And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell.

For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. 

But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison.                             

James 3:6-8 (NASB)

In the Fear of the LORD

is strong confidence.

The Fear of the LORD

is a fountain of life, 

and his children will have

a refuge that one may

avoid the snares of death.

Proverbs 14:26,27 NASB


Is it really that simpleCan the confusion in the mind,

and sin on the lips of manof womanbe put out by divine washing --

through the fountain of Life which is the Fear of the LORD?

Because of the holy Blood of Jesus Christ.

YesIt is that simple

And yesIt is that profound.

Consider the lilies,

how they grow:

they neither toil nor spin;

but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory

clothed himself like one of these.

But if God so clothes the grass in the field,

which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace,

how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!

Luke 12:27,28  (NASB)

We need only to look up . . .

On the evening of September 14, 2010, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and surrounding park were evacuated.
There had been a bomb threat made by telephone to the office that manages that property.
Happily, no bomb was found at the site, and life in Paris has returned to normal.
This is a view of the Eiffel Tower by night taken from the Pont d'Alma, during our trip to France in May of 2008.

Desire Fulfilled

Long stretches of our lives could be titled,

Hope deferred makes the heart sick.

Sunset Glory #5

Yet the day, hour and minute arrives when

Desire fulfilled is a tree of life! 

                (Proverbs 13:12)

Awaking before dawn,

ever-changing shapes of the clouds with their amazing colors 

blessed my eyes as I stood at the open bedroom window. 

With camera ready, I would worship and sing praise to Our God. 

So my file of dawn photos grew quickly over the course of a year.

Then suddenly my life changed again and I re-located. 

The bedroom window at dawn was no longer a portal of inspiration for me. 

A tinge of regret clouded my heart requiring patience to wait 

for the new portal to be revealed.

Sunset Glory #3

"Perhaps sunsets now?" I thought to myself. So for several days 

as sunset approached, I walked in different directions to 

"get the lay of the land" and find an horizon suitable to my purpose.

The largest obstacle was the long, high tension wires stretched between many metal towers which supported them.  From underneath, the buzzing of the electrical flow is heard as it travels the wires.

Then THAT DAY came! As the sun's setting approached, 

I glanced up from my keyboard toward the window. 

A rosy - orange glow met my eyes, 

and I quickly left the house. 

Blazing sky was to my right, 

and a glow with the added view of the moon, to my left. 

Quickly walking the path, I found the place 

between two towers with the powerlines above me, 

not intruding on the camera's view.

Turning right then left, right then left, 

these pictures came into the view-finder of my camera, 

and my excitement was high!

Sunset Glory #4

The place for perfect sunset vision was revealed

directly underneath 

the power transport system

about which I had been complaining! 

This was indeed, 


As we meditate on the Glory of God seen here, we see proof that our inspiration, our provision,                                                           

our enabling will suddenly appear to us and become our "tree of life" --

thus fulfilling our godly desire! 

Thank You, Lord!

And may you, my friend, be blessed in Yeshua's mighty Name, amen!



An allegory in pictures



After two weeks of gray dawns,

Pale Dawn, dark clouds

I was hoping for some nice color.

There were  good clouds, but the brilliant,

hoped-for color wasn't happening.

So I snapped what I saw,

and after waiting for more, I gave up and sat down

at my computer.

Glancing through the orange-gold, gray clouds window a little later,

 I saw a brightly-tinged cloud, 

and quickly got my camera.

Pine, trailing pink clouds

Then I smilingly checked my email.

At the window again, high above,

bright pink clouds trailed across the sky past

the nearby pine tree.

Finally, while transferring my new pictures from 

the camera to the computer, I gave thanks that

I could capture these different expressions of

God's beautiful dawn - all within a short timeframe.

Suppose I had not looked again, and again -

Much beauty would have been missed!

WATCHMAN, here is the allegory:

May our eyes stay open and watchful!

May our ears be attuned to His still, small voice!

To God be all the praise!

Dawn, plane, moon

Ever since the Tower of Babel,
men have strived to reach heaven...

but have they believed the One Who said,

"I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life.

No one comes to the Father except  by Me."

Matthew 14:6

Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away;
and every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it
so that it will bear more fruit."

 Blood attends the birth of a horse, as it does the birth of a man.

A steed well cared for and trained, can be a friend, indeed.

Are we more concerned about "getting ahead"  than we are about "getting ready"?




    Getting Ahead




 Amazin' Grazin'



"And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war."...

 "And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses."         Revelation 19:11,14
