the power of color

And this is all that matters.


The problem with racism as the new thought-crime is that it’s not really about race,
or skin colour, it’s about power using colour.
When I look at someone, I see character not colour.

As a high school art teacher, I always taught a color theory unit to my Art I classes
before letting everyone jump right into using color…be it colored pencils, pastels, paints, etc.
Color was much more complicated than just grabbing some paint and a brush…
and my anxious charges needed to understand such.

We would explore the whole physiology of how our eyes and brain see color and perceive color.
We talked about prisms, refraction and the bending of light.

We would talk about what it meant to be color blind…as several of my students were color
blind and how’d…

The Mask Master

For such a time as this.

Terry James Prophecy Line

I want to let it go, but I can’t. It’s central to the very wrap-up of this quickly fleeting age.

The mask is a symbol of the work of the most enslaving master ever to exist. The mask master is working his deluding evil and sophistry in ways that could not have been imagined even by Orwell, Huxley, or any of the dystopian fiction writers of past or present. And, that slave-master has done so in only a matter of a few months in ways that are astounding.

The realization is brought into high-definition focus in an audio that was brought to my attention the past week. I’m sure a number of readers here have already viewed it.

I hope it hasn’t been removed by the time you try to access it.  Here’s the link:

Be afraid… Be VERY Afraid! NO, Don’t Be!

for such a time as this.

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

Brethren, yes, I get it. The world is bombarding us with 24/7 doom and gloom such as riots, looting, lawlessness, COVID 19, political corruption, wars, terror, and all other forms of Godlessness you can imagine. People are losing their jobs for speaking out against such evils, churches are being fined for meeting, and even the United States Supreme Court upheld a violation of the 1st amendment, limiting the number of people that can attend a church service.

We believers are under attack from all sides and angles. Sadly, many believers are not even aware that they are being distracted and conditioned for something with a hidden agenda. Indeed, many genuine believers are drowning in fear. We would expect this from the unsaved people of the world as the events of the day are hopeless to them. But, why are many in the church cowering in fear? From pastors and elders…

The New Age Mystical Roots of Jesus Calling: Brethren – This is NOT for Us! — Absolute Truth from the Word of God

This article was originally written in 2015. After seeing conversations online between Christians, I see that it is time to republish the piece. The lack of discernment within the body of Christ is alarming. “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have […]

Memorization versus Technology


God's Grace ~ God's Glory!

We are losing our minds to the world’s way of thinking. Even Christians are forgetting that God gave us the gift of memory by which to store His precious Word.

Electronic devices are good in their place, but they can never give us life or accompany us to the grave.

When we are dying, we cannot hold a phone in our hands. If the only data we have is stored in our devices, our spirit and soul will have nothing to hold to.

As God’s people, we must commit to memory the truths of His Word. This is the only means for living and dying in peace with Him.

Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, teaches us the importance of God’s Word. The following are a few of these verses as my prayer.

 Psalm 119:

11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not…

Fewer doctrines of the Christian faith are more comforting than the sovereignty of God. It humbles you in good seasons, provides hope in hard seasons, and gives joy in all seasons. The doctrine of God’s sovereignty is a constant nourishment for the soul.
But how do we DEFINE sovereignty?

A.W. Pink defines it this way: “The sovereignty of God may be defined as the exercise of his supremacy. Being infinitely elevated above the highest creature, He is the Most High, Lord of heaven and earth. Subject to none, influenced by none, absolutely independent; God does as He pleases, only as He pleases.”

This is true. But we must not be mere academics only. We have to apply this truth not just to our minds, but also to our hearts. If we do the former without the latter, we…

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…

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.
