The Lord YHVH continues to work diligently ...

... on me, ... and (of course) on all who belong to His Son, Yeshua (Jesus) The Messiah.

The Lord is so patient & merciful, that He will continue to form & shape me, according to His Will, in order to produce (when He is finished with me, He will have produced...) a lovely vessel of honor.
(honorable in His Sight, which is truly "perfect," i.e., complete, mature)

He is willing to continue chipping away at my rough edges, so He can, in time, bring forth a brilliant gemstone, much like a diamond, but more rare, like a ruby.
By the way, being from Texas, and living near Arkansas, I have become aware that it is true that, underground in those states, there are quite a few diamonds.
Wish I knew where. (hee hee!)

Diamonds are not rare.
Rubies are.
Some other gemstones are rare, also.
God made them all.
They are only rare in the eyes of humans, who determine rareness by how many of a given type of gemstone have been found and made public.

If I have been found by my Master Yeshua, Who made me & fashioned me, & designed me to glorify His Name, by how I let Him shine through my attitude, my actions & my words, ... then He wants me to demonstrate His good Character in public.
Do I always do that? No. (I wish I did!) But He is able to enable me to, as I submit my spirit and soul to Him, moment by moment, more and more, as He is changing me more and more into His Image. I know He is Patient, because He is still willing to work with me with so much LovingKindness! HalleluYah!

If I keep it all to myself, then how am I having a positive effect on anyone else?
How could I be used by Him to turn other ladies or young ladies or girls toward The Lord's Son, Yeshua (Jesus), if I do not let Him use me in public? (among others, in some way)

When a believing lady lets The Lord Adonai YHVH use her, does she have to become a well-known speaker, or one who sings before people (some gather in large numbers), write a book that sells quite a few copies, or lead a ladies' Bible study, or help lead a congregation's ladies' retreat, speaking from her heart about some issue she has seen The Lord Yeshua help her work through?
Not necessarily.

Each lady, mom, whom Yeshua has called His own & whom He has chosen & "ordained to go & bring forth fruit" must seek His Face & learn of Him. ...because He will "give" to those who "ask." He will let them "find," who "seek." He will "open," unto those who "knock."

However, we must not figure we should "seek" for fame, or try to find or get opportunities to speak before groups of women. What if that is not The Lord YHVH's "calling" for us, in particular?
What if our Adonai YHVH has chosen for us (one person, in particular) to be at home raising our own children, and doing what we can to follow The Lord, as He leads us?

Should we try to learn writing skills, to write a message that someone else may read (online)? Maybe so.
If we check our motives, our reasons, for doing it, or think about "why" we choose to learn some skill, we should discover whether or not those motives or goals have originated in The Lord YHVH's "Heart," or in ours.

Should we try to learn how to speak to other women, to share a message from our heart? Maybe so.
If we check our motives, our goals, for doing it, we should be able to discern whether or not that idea came from The Lord, or from our own thoughts.

While we moms (or dads) are busily training our very young children, or our older children, and (meanwhile) also doing what we can to educate them in The Lord YHVH's Wisdom, spiritual Understanding and the Knowledge of His Will, ... then, we can be sure He will be quite willing to lead us.
But ... will we follow?

I've found that I have a tendency to let myself look at "the moment," instead of keeping the overall vision or "picture" of what will come to pass, in time, Lord willing. I tend to forget that, though things may look (for now) not like I believe Adonai YHVH would want them to look like, yet, He is still in control of all the lives within our family, and all else that's going on in this universe.

... He does (definitely) want me to choose, moment by moment, to keep my focus only on Him (as The Only One I should plan to please, above all else) ... and to trust Him more fully, each new day. As I do "whatever my hands find to do," I am still seeking to obey Him in all things.

He wants all my life.
He wants all areas of my life.

Have I yielded my rights to my plans for lessons, this coming week?
Have I yielded my rights to my schedule for our lessons, for this year's studies?
Have I remained yielded to His Will, during this past year, or this past week?

Have I been willing, each day, to yield *all* my rights & expectations, as king David had to learn to do, ... to my Master (Adonai YHVH), Who is in control of all things & all people in the universe He designed & continues to sustain?

Am I forgetting He notices just what is (or has been) going on that affects my life and the lives of my husband and my children?

Am I forgetting that what goes on does not depend on whether or not I remain alive, tomorrow? (I know this may sound odd; that's okay; I do intend "good" by writing this this way)

Am I willing to see that I am just a part of something Good The Lord is doing, producing, in this world He has made?
In other words, the universe (& this world) does not depend on me, to continue on. It depends on The Lord, for "by Him all things consist." (from Colossians 1:17) " ... All things were created by Him, and for Him." (from Colossians 1:16)
(see also Romans 11:36)

Am I willing to work with Him, or do I expect Him to arrange things so I get several things I wish He would provide, ...? (oops!)

Am I truly submitting *all* areas of my life to my Lord? ... cheerfully?

Do I thank Him "in" all things and "for" all things? (ouch!)

Am I treating Him as The One He is, in Truth -- as my Lord / Master / Adonai?
Do I let Him lead?
Do I ever go ahead of Him, or find myself trying to " help" Him work things out so the situations I want to happen come about? (Don't do this! It will not result in your happiness!)

Am I allowing Him to speak visions / dreams into my soul, to let me work / cooperate "with" Him in? Or would I prefer my plans to be played out? (ouch! -- just being honest, here, as if thinking while I write this.)

Have found out, through trial & error methods I tend to use (not realizing I do that; just by living day to day), that The Lord, Who still loves me even when I am unlovable (at times, even after salvation, ... okay? -- it's true!), is still willing to re-route my direction. Why? ... because He sees the danger(s) ahead, that I do not see, yet. (how amazingly caring He is! Praise His Name!)

He is willing to open my spiritual eyes, to see something I was not noticing, even in my own character (not the good part), that tries to creep in, again, to try to de-rail me off His "track!"
He, then, moves me back "on course."
And, He even enables me to "want to" stay on His Course!
He also enables me to "do" it, for His glory! (willingly!) Hallelujah!!!

He is willing to help me walk, day to day, in His Footsteps, though mine falter at times.
He is willing to reprove me with His Gentle, Loving Way, so I will not make that same mistake again, when I am faced with a temptation to think the wrong way.
He is willing to let me walk alongside Him, as His friend, as long as I am willing to do whatsoever He commands me to do. Am I willing?

As I allow His Spirit to teach me, to counsel me, to comfort me ("with" "strength," as He gives me strength to make the right choices & think His Way, uprightly), The Lord YHVH, & my Redeemer Yeshua, is able to call me His friend. Will I allow His Spirit to teach me? King Solomon was said to have a hearing heart; most teach that that indicates he had a teachable heart. (humble, as well, and meek, I think, at that time in his life)

Some Reflections:

Have grieved His Holy Spirit more than a few times. (ouch!)
Have quenched His Holy Spirit more than a few times, also. (ouch!!)
Yet, as I agree with His Truth and confess what I have done wrong, He always (willingly) welcomes me back into His Loving, Merciful Arms!!!
He is truly awesome!!!

He lets me begin again! He knows He can enable me to do much, much better, the next opportunity He gives me to "pass the test."

Does He test me? If Psalm 139:23-24 is true, and it is, He does. He does it for the good of His own children! In verse 23, the word "try" seems to come from a word that means "to test."

When we are preparing to bake yeast bread, it has to be proofed. (as some say it) The yeast must show that it is able to cause the dough we've mixed to rise enough to bake a good load of bread. As it is rising, we check it, after a while, to see if it looks like the yeast is working well.

The Lord does this with us, in a different way.
He allows us to make decisions.
He watches us to see how we are doing.
He already knows. But He does give us the freedom to make decisions. He is there if we need Him to rescue us, or deliver us from harm.

When He sees we are on "the wrong track," He can change our "course."
He may allow us to continue to go in the wrong direction, at times, because He also knows He can deliver us. He may want us to learn another lesson, through this.
He can even deliver us after things have gone from what we'd call 'bad' to 'worse!' I have seen Him do this in my own life!

He is our Deliverer! (from Psalm 46:1, 5, 10 -- He is our refuge & help: our shelter; the One Who surrounds us to protect / aid us; our defense; our hope; a high fort .... These are some definitions of the word offered for "help" and "refuge" in that Psalm)

Am so-o thankful (I want to be more grateful to Him! Thankful is more like a thought or feeling. Gratefulness is expressed in an action.) my Lord Adonai YHVH is so patient, so Merciful, so Kind-hearted, so Giving & willing, & so Loving, in all His Ways!

I may, at times, see what He allows as something I don't want Him to allow to occur. But as I surrender my rights & my will, again, to Him, to His Righteousness and His (perfect) Will, He continually accepts me, again, as His now-obedient, submissive child! His Countenance is, again, lifted up upon me! (as mentioned in the blessing our Father God, YHVH, commanded to be spoken over His people, shared in Numbers 6:24-27)
He even welcomes me with His Loving, open Arms!
(see Psalms 98:1-9)
(see Deuteronomy 33:27)

I hope something here might be a blessing to someone else.

The Lord is still at work, trying to produce the character of Messiah Yeshua in me! That reminds me of what king David shares in the Psalms: His Mercy endureth for ever!
Have you ever thought about "why" it says "endureth?"
I think it is because there must be at least one more person, on the earth, who is a bit like me. His Mercy "must" endure our imperfections (for years!) and our slowness in learning some "life" lessons He allows us to go through. ;o)
The Lord surely is quite determined, persevering & responsible! He will finish what He has begun! (in me)
(see Philippians 1:6)

James 4:6-10 is helpful to memorize, so The Lord can use those verses to get our thinking back on His "track." ;o)

~ This is meant (written) in Love for those who are also learning to walk in His Ways more & more ...

more helpful truth worth learning

The link, below, should take you to a site page which will allow you, until June 20, 2011, to view this very important movie:

It is long. It lasts about 1 hour and 48 minutes. But it is well worth your time to view it.

After you view it, please pass it along to someone else you know, who has had, or still has, cancer.
I believe it will give them hope that someone "does" have some real help for them, and someone really "does" care and wants to help them!

I realize that some may not get to this doctor soon enough to help them.

I understand that not everyone will get to see the results of those who are accepted into the clinical trials that are approved, for the use of this man's medicine, to stop cancer from growing.

I realize that some may still die, though this doctor takes the cases of those whose cancers are at advanced stages, and are fast-growing.

I do realize that some may only feel like their own situation is hopeless, if they do not get to this doctor soon enough.

But I do believe that if I had cancer, myself, I would still want to know the truth.
I would still want to know that someone had been trying hard to share with everyone what he had realized, and found would work, to benefit adult people and children with cancer.
I would still want to thank this man for trying and for persevering even against what must have looked, at times, like insurmountable obstacles before him.
But he has persevered.
He has overcome (within his own soul).
He has been willing to be used ... because he just wanted to help his patients with inoperable cancers ... so they could live a while longer.
And he has been successful in helping them.
They are the ones (his patients) who stood up against "the ones who opposed this truthful man" before Congressmen and Congresswomen, to tell their stories.
That says it all.

You may also view this movie at the link below here:

Thank you for your patience, and your willingness to be teachable in heart!

some information (truth) worth learning

... for any good (wise) student of Truth. (of any age above, let's say, age 12 or 13)
I intend for this post to be read by adults who are willing to consider all sides of an academic, or intellectual, issue. If they are, then they will usually see what is Truth and what is a Lie (or, at least, Deceptive in nature).

Ben Stein (except for his "taste in music" or his music he "chose" to use in this DVD / video documentary film) has done a marvelous job in his truth-filled, heart-felt, sincerely-in-search-of-the-truth effort to find out what has gone very wrong in scientific academia in America.

I salute you, Ben Stein, for what you have done in sharing this video with all who are teachable, willing to learn what is true and right in this universe, and ... to get the word out about it, to all you hope to reach, Sir!

Friends, I am sharing some "you - tube" video links, for anyone (who reads this) to view, so he / she may decide for himself / herself what they each think about Ben Stein's effort to try to share what is "just not right" in the scientific "academic world," in America.

What are these scientists thinking (?), who are (many are) atheistic in their own, personal beliefs, or (at least) they are believing the(ir own) lies taught through the no-real-scientific-proof-can-be-offered-for Darwinian evolution that they are still being "paid" to promote as (so-called) "truth" in their colleges and in their institutions such as museums and departments within the U. S. government "system?"

Darwinian evolution is still only a theory. It has never been proven to be "absolutely" true. (neither has creationism, from a [so-called] scientific viewpoint, one held by the folks who say: "I have to see proof right in front of my own eyes, or that I can touch, taste, or feel with my own hands or my physical receptors, ... or else I will not believe in it." To them, creationism has also never been "proven" to be "absolutely" true. ... to the skeptic, who may even doubt his own existence, I think)

These so-called scientists (apparently) will not tolerate "(real, verifiable) truth" in science, any more. (in past centuries, many or most scientists did) And, they are paid through the misguided use of American tax dollars, though many of America's citizens do not agree with their tax dollars being used to suppress real truth, and to promote unscientific, un-provable, un-substantiated theories such as Darwinianism. These same American citizens do *not* want the theory of Darwinian evolution taught as if it is factual "science," to their children and grandchildren.

These so-called scientists are ever ready, however, to indoctrinate young students into their way of thinking. (they do not think they need to ask any rightful authority of those children, first, either) They are willing to be a part of those who have, in the past, used eugenics to (secretly) sterilize at least 50,000 people in America, in the 20th century. These people were seen as "unfit to breed." (What a lie!) Wonder what their parents would have thought if "these people," their children, these scientists, themselves, or their parents, ... had been chosen to be either euthenized or sterilized? What then?

They (the evolution-promoting scientists, so-called, in America) have a worldview. They do not want anyone else's different worldviews to be taught, or shared, however. But their worldview does not agree with YHVH God's worldview. How very sad!
One day, they will meet Him, face to Face. YHVH God (ELohim, The God of Yisrael / Israel, The God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob) is The One Who made them, designed even them, to glorify His Name. But they did not agree with Him. (yet) They will not work in cooperation with The One Who made them. (maybe, one day, before they are destroyed, they will; so far, the Darwinian-evolutionary adherents in this film / DVD have not yet recognized the reality of His existence. He *is* Truth, itself! He made all things! In His Son, Yeshua, all things consist! He holds all things together! He cannot lie. It is true to say: He does not know how to lie. Only those who oppose Him, and reject YHVH God's Truth are the true liars.). Note: God does not believe in atheists. And liars will be cast into the lake that burns with "perpetual" fire. (like the idea of burning rock that most people know as similar to what they have observed within volcanoes)

Below are the ten links I am sharing, here, for anyone who is willing to view them all.

Ben Stein took a lot of time to do this research and others helped him. Read the credits at the end.
Pray for Mr. Stein, please, if you will, that Almighty God, The I AM, YHVH, our Adonai, will bless Ben Stein according to Numbers 6:23-27.
Pray that those who helped him on this will be blessed, also, by The One Who still loves all the so-called scientists who have chosen, freely (though many say they do not believe in anyone having what they call "a free will" within the limited mind-set of 'Darwinian evolution) to reject His free offer of deliverance, His free gift of unconditional Love. (... that is, deliverance through them believing in His Son as the ultimate Atonement-Maker, Redeemer of their souls from eternal damnation / condemnation) (I am aware that Ben Stein is a Hebrew / Jewish man. Do you know that if you bless the people of Israel [descendants of Jacob, Isaac's son, Abraham's true son of the promise], that YHVH God will bless you? [and that] Do you know that if you curse them [God's chosen people, descendants of Abraham through Isaac & Jacob], YHVH God will curse you? Ben Stein has a Father in Heaven just as I do! His Father in Heaven is still at work in his life, as He is in mine! Pray for Ben Stein, please, as you pray for others you know and hope to see in Heaven, some day!)

When you are finished viewing these, please consider
buying a copy of his DVD, from such sites as:

Of course, you may purchase a copy of Ben Stein's truth-filled DVD from another source. (I say truth-filled, because Ben Stein just wants to share the truth about what has been going on, in the "academic" world of "science")
Note: I am *not* saying that the Darwinian evolutionists he interviews in this film documentary are telling the truth. They, it becomes clear, are quite deceived, believing the lie that there is no Almighty God, and that they are "free" to think as they choose to think. Their conclusions are baseless. (in my humble opinion)

The worldview that most all these Darwinian evolutionary (so-called) "scientists" espouse is one of no hope in any after-life, no hope in a God Who "infinitely" Loves them, and no hope that their lives have any "real" value, because they consider themselves to be some sort of "higher" animal. They simply do not see themselves as "true" humans. (in my humble opinion) *That* is not scientific!

But, if they choose (freely, they say, though most do not believe in a free will; it does not fit into their Darwinian evolutionary view of the universe, remember) to believe they are animals, and that some are "at a higher level" than "others," then, they must consider themselves to be on their way to achieving some higher level, as opposed to "the others" who are "inferior" in some way. The "others" ... are unfit, undesirable, to continue within "the species." They can be eliminated, for the good of others. (these Darwinian evolutionary scientists believe) That is what was done, in Germany, to handicapped people, who were put into asylums, and "eliminated," even before WWII began.
It is horrendous! It is preposterous! It is hateful and it was carried out deceptively! People were killed because they did not fit some unreasonable idea that they were useless, and that they could not "contribute" to "society," so they could no longer be (were not worthy to be) "fed."

But these kinds of false (not founded in true science, as was practiced by such men as Sir Isaac Newton, and Galileo, and Johannes Kepler, and Robert Boyle) teachings (the evolutionary theory as written about by Charles Darwin) are what any child in America may be, or will be taught (this was taught in schools I attended, back in the 1970s, friends! More of it is being pushed down the mental throats of children who are in gov't schools, now, than it was back then.), in any gov't-supported college, or any gov't-supported school at any level, in America.

It (Darwinian evolutionary "scientific" teachings heavily promoted in America's government-sponsored school system) is against what is written in our Declaration of Independence, penned by Thomas Jefferson, which states that: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain, unalienable Rights, that among those are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness...." (though I am also aware that in Jefferson's original wording he wanted to use, at the end of this statement I have quoted, was "Property," instead of "the pursuit of Happiness")

some informative sites, articles


This is God's Learning Channel, a site on which you may find some more Truth than what you have already learned and applied to your life as a true believer in The Lord YHVH our Elohim. (The Lord God Almighty, The God of Yisrael, The God of Avraham, Yitzhak and Yaakov / Abraham, Isaac and Jacob)


This site is called Christian Audio, and it is a great place to find some wonderful deals, plus some great free audio recordings of someone reading a valuable book you may want to hear read to you, also.

The second link is for a specific "free audio book" by Joni Eareckson Tada, entitled _A Place of Healing_.


Bogart Family Resources' site is a great place where you may find many helpful materials & resources!


This site will enlighten you on some issues that many, in the USA, are not aware of, but which will affect the lives of us, our children and our grandchildren. Become informed! Stay informed! ... please do this. It is for your own good! And you can use the information you learn to bless & benefit others!


(Disclaimer: I do *not* approve of the photo shared along with the article I am citing, by sharing the link, above!)

The site, on which you may read this article, is one that shares truth.
We need to learn information as we are able to justify the time spent to learn these new things. As always, it is up to each of us to limit how much we are online. But, if we do not know some of the information, even through shortened summations of the information, shared by others who know us & care about us, ... we may find ourselves very sorry, afterward.

Just wanted you all to know about this. If it is going on (what is shared in the cited article, above), it will affect your life in some way, and the lives of those you love & care about.


(Disclaimer: I do not endorse all the opinions or information shared on this site, by just sharing this link to it.)
Am sharing this link because it takes you to a good site that shares information you, as a parent, or as an older brother or sister, may want to know about. Why? Because the lives of children, who cannot defend themselves, are at risk, in America. (the USA) Isn't that a good-enough reason to learn more about what you can do to help the children, the babies, the unborn?


On Organic Consumers Association's site: The link I've shared, above, should take you to an important article on this site. (you will only read the beginning of the article at this link, but use it to go to the actual article, on the other site, it will take you to, when you see the "clickable link" within the words "Read the Full Article."

The title of the article is: "Dangerous Toxins From Genetically Modified Plants Found in Women and Fetuses" by Jeffrey Smith of Responsible Technology, May 25, 2011 Straight to the Source

which can be found at this link:

I believe this article is well worth your time to read it!


This link takes you to the Media Research Center's site, main page. There are many areas within this site, where you may learn information you will want to share with others.

Stay informed! You may, through information you learn & share, be able to help someone else, who will be so thankful you did!
