visiting the well alone is the only way

for such a time as this.


When the well’s dry, we know the worth of water.
Benjamin Franklin

(the original well used by Jacob, the famous Samaritan Well, currently located in the West Bank)

Every now and then, when it is most needed, God reminds us, well let’s make that He reminds me,
He is indeed still there and still in charge.

I don’t know about you but I have just felt so beat down as of late.

Wear a mask…
Don’t tell me to wear a mask…
Things are bad…
Things aren’t so bad…
Have school…
Don’t have school…
We hate Trump…
We love Trump.
Black lives matter…
No lives can matter…
Riots, looting, kneeling, anthems, flags…

Abortions, yes.
Abortions, no.

Love everyone…but just don’t love those or those…

Watch the news.

Shepherds—please, lead your flocks

Two thoughts to get you thinking.


I am like the sick sheep that strays from the rest of the flock. Unless
the Good Shepherd takes me on His shoulders and carries me back to His fold,
my steps will falter, and in the very effort of rising, my feet will give way.

St. Jerome

(sheep farm, Killarny Ireland / Julie Cook / 2015)

Firstly—- I read the following July 4th post written by our freind and
most knowledgeable Christian sister IB.

As I read it, I felt warm tears falling down my cheeks.

I too have most recently deeply felt her words.
A sense of pleading that our Chruch leadership does what they are entrusted to do…
that being to lead their flocks—come hell or high water.
Not cower in the corner of current ideologies…

A day later, I read a post by our dear friend and former Anglican Bishop, Gavin Ashenden..
A post that mirrored…

Out of the Blue


The real Himalayan Blue poppy over on the blog..Tish Farrell  Writer on the Edge   for May 22 is just so ,so pretty.  I just ‘needed’ to make one ,or two ,or three in paper since that is what I do. Do look her up and enjoy all of her writing. She spent a good deal of time in Africa years ago and writes so interestingly about all of her adventures while there with her husband. My own dream trip to Africa is just a dream but I would love to check the bucket list  and go some day.

While I am here ….There seem to be several new wonderful souls who have clicked follow on my blog. Thank you …and even though I don’t post as often as I thought I would…you are most welcome and please continue to enjoy the blogs I repost from those I follow and you never know when I might jump in on my own. I really do have great intention …things just get in my way.   Like the repainting of my kitchen. There of course is a story here but maybe another time.

Please leave a Hi so I know you were here and remember…This is the Lords day…REJOICE.



Which side are you on?

It saddened me to hear that Dr. Ravi Zacharias had passed away and I prayed that the Lord would comfort his grieving family. But then just last week I prayed for my cousin who had lost his Roman Catholic father and the week before that I prayed that the Lord would comfort my Mohammedan neighbors who had lost their mother to cancer. Death is indeed a grievous thing and we should grieve with those who have lost their loved ones and pray that God would comfort their hearts. [Rom 12:15]

All that said, I do not grieve for Dr. Ravi Zacharias as I would grieve for a brother or sister in Christ, for the plain reason that the ‘Jesus’ he preached and the ‘gospel’ he eloquently defended is not the Gospel the apostles preached and contended for.

The apostle Paul…

Ravi Zacharias 1946 – 2020

Reasoned Cases for Christ

Screen Shot 2020-05-19 at 10.31.27 AM

Ravi left this world to be with Jesus this morning (19 May 2020). This is the link to the Obituary for Ravi Zacharias. Please take the time to read it. It is a testimony of what God can do with one man. I take comfort in knowing that Ravi now sees Jesus, His Lord and Saviour, face to face and in addition, is in the presence of his Christian brother Nabeel Qureshi and many others, who Ravi also longed to see.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. “Gates’ Globalist Vaccine Agenda A Win Win for Pharma and Mandatory Vaccination”

Pay attention

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

The Source I am using for this article is not a Conservative leaning website. The site is” and it belongs to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. So no liberal can accuse me of sourcing right-leaning websites on this topic.  

Kennedy’s foundation is based on “Truth” and not politicized.  He knows how children all over the world are being harmed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation!

From Robert Kennedy Jr:

And do you want the lowdown on Dr. Fauci, the NIH doctor who is ALSO on the board of directors of the Gates Foundation? Here it is:

Through the years, I have written extensively about Bill Gates and his connections to Big Pharma; and on the untold number of children in underdeveloped countries he has harmed and killed with his vaccine “cocktails.”

It was a pleasant surprise to come across the foundation of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr:

As We Wait — Faith on the Farm

Yesterday was Good Friday. Tomorrow is Resurrection Sunday. I’ve heard some call today Holy Saturday. While we don’t actually know exactly how the days line up on the calendar, today, at least, symbolizes when Jesus’ body lay in the tomb. It was the Sabbath. The disciples were resting. But they were afraid. Their unconquerable Savior […]

In Case You Missed It : He Is Risen: Historical Evidence That Jesus Rose From The Dead | James Bishop

Reasoned Cases for Christ


This is a WordPress repost of one of the most comprehensive articles I have read on the historical evidence that supports the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was originally authored by James Bishop. It is an excellent resource and I highly recommend you bookmark it for future reference.

Did Jesus really rise from the dead?  Is there any evidence that this actually happened, or is this just a product of myth, legend, or religious wishful thinking?  As it turns out, the resurrection of Jesus is well supported by historical evidence and serves as the best explanation for the facts surrounding his life, death, and the emergence of early Christianity.

In this article we shall focus on New Testament Scholar Gary Habermas’ minimal facts approach (MFA). The MFA, explains Habermas, “considers only those data that are so strongly attested historically that they are granted by nearly every scholar who studies the subject…

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16

A good father sent a good son on this Good Friday– that’s today! It’s the good news, a love story that defines the true meaning of amazing Grace and an unfailing LOVE…

Today we commemorate our Lord Jesus Christ for making a great sacrifice and for freeing us, ALL from our sins. He knew the price of those sins was death. He knew the source of those sins was YOU and since He couldn’t bear the thought of eternity without YOU, he chose the nails. By that act of selfless love, Jesus portrayed the STRENGTH, LOVE and FORGIVENESS that lies in the SACRIFICE he made for all of us.

Friends, I encourage you to let this weekend that’s marked in history be…

And so it will be


Michael Jeshurun

There is a remnant of God even in the United States of America, and we praise God for that, but for the most part the USA is as godless and wicked as the world was in Noah’s day and in the days of Lot!

And the American nation is more accountable because she has had more light, more true Gospel, more genuine Christianity than any other nation on the face of the earth. But because she has rejected that light and forsaken her faith, she is in the same state today as backslidden Israel was in the days of Jeremiah.

The Bible predicts that in the Last Days “evil men and seducers will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13). This is surely the case with America. She has gone from bad to worse, which is why we believe that…
