The winter solstice has always been my favorite day of the year. At 7:59 AM this morning a wonderful change took place in the heavens. The wondrous pause when the Earth stopped tilting away from the sun. In the northern hemisphere, today is the shortest day and the longest night of the year. It is… Continue reading The Day of the Unconquered Son

When visions collide
Have you seen the latest dream or vision on YouTube? Have you heard conflicting reports of what God is saying to the world? One prophesy I watched said that the Lord said to "brace for impact" of a tsunami of revival that will sweep over the whole Earth, and the lies and deceptions of wickedness… Continue reading When visions collide
Circle the wagons again
In this time of uncertainty for so many in the world, I wanted to share a post from 2018 in the hopes that it will give you hope. Yes, we are faced with unprecedented events.

When Time Doesn’t Heal
Well-meaning people often say "time heals all wounds" usually when someone has lost a loved one. Or, when they are at a loss for words. Today is Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. It is also the 2nd anniversary of my ex-husband's death. I have often thought about Enrique during these two years. There were… Continue reading When Time Doesn’t Heal
It’s all downhill from here.
Happy summer solstice!
It’s all downhill from here!
In the longest day of the year its easy to forget the darkness of winter. And on the shortest day of the year— December 21, it’s easy to forget the bright light of summer. I like to think of these two days, the longest and the shortest, like the ups and downs of life. Like hills and valleys.
On winter solstice I rejoice that the darkness has an end, that every day is brighter. On today, the summer solstice I can look down at the dark valleys I have walked through, days of darkness and doubt. Today on the peak of the mountain top, summer seems like easy endless days of sunshine and fun. Even though we are going to gradually slide into the dark days of winter, like another valley, but today, we can see other mountain tops in our future…

Give me the Mark
I grabbed my coffee and made myself comfortable. I was catching up on the news in the morning but it seemed like all news is bad news these days. That is, if the news I see really is the truth. I'm not so sure now. The media used to be trusted. Not anymore. So much… Continue reading Give me the Mark
Long live the King
There is something urgent about the question "Did you hear the news?" I remember being the herald of some bad news on August 17, 1977. I was 14. I ran outside in the early morning in Anchorage and stopped the first adult I saw walking through the parking lot of our apartment. "Hey, Mister. Did… Continue reading Long live the King
Joy comes in the morning
Psalm 30:5 "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning" There are times in life when sorrow takes us by surprise and overwhelms us. Today the day before Easter. It was the time of sorrow after Jesus died and… Continue reading Joy comes in the morning
