I read this commentary on US politics.

Yup– republican & democratic presidents have been two wings of the same predatory bird…
AND hope exists. Another article I read the same day:

I don’t know that I agree w/ anyone 100%. I do know that more and more people are thinking, learning, and growing. Some of them are even changing behaviors– something more difficult than the other 3 combined.
YHWH told me, “Find the good, green spaces. Touch it. Make it grow.
It’s not just about plants. It’s people, too.
You can’t break up all the asphalt that covers an entire planet with a jack-hammer: your shoulders would give out before you could make much head-way.
You CAN plant seeds, and find the blackberry & ivy that have already found a crack to grow in. Those plants that grow up through the asphalt are strong. Help them grow.
Yes, there’s a horrible conspiracy going on somewhere… it’s even trace-able via corporate connections & ownership. Mathematically provable “conspiracy theory.”
AND the truth is that $ is *not* god. Only an idol. An idol whose hands and head are threatened.
“He has shown thee, O man, what is good, and what YHWH requires of you: but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy Elohim.”
If you’re given a jack-hammer, by all means, have at it! But when you’re spent, remember to plant the strong sprouting seeds in the wake.
Healthy plants produce seed after their own kind. Unhealthy plants will eventually die and become fertilizer for the next generation. Eventually, hybrids and GMO’s will die out. There will be a new generation to feed. Blackberries & ivy & “good, green spaces” may come in handy.

Oyster mushrooms break down petroleum & petrochemicals. Zeolite clay absorbs radioactive particles. The world is designed to regenerate. We can help, and it can help us to survive, and eventually thrive.

Behold, the hand of YHWH is not so short That it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull That it cannot hear. –Isaiah 59:1

YHWH said to Moses, “Has YHWH’s hand grown short? Now you will see whether my word will happen to you or not.” –Numbers 11:23
The arm of YHWH is longer than “the long arm of the law.”
No less true today than it was for the Hebrew children in ancient times.

It’s still reality, even when the corporate monsters loom large. Eventually, it’s all just words on paper that say a corporation exists. Paper rots. Life is designed to continue.

When we chose our first home-birth midwife, we had to commute 4 hours each way, with a toddler in-tow, for appointments. We then temporarily moved to the town where our midwife lived for several weeks surrounding the birth to get the care we wanted… NEEDED. When we chose our second home-birth midwife, we moved to the town where she lives, permanently. When we chose our third home-birth midwife, it took juggling 3 midwives’ schedules to keep us covered, as they were stretched by the demand of so many women birthing at home the same month. May YHWH bless all midwives!

EVERY woman should have access to these extraordinary, supportive women who have astounding wisdom from years of experience in in-depth, holistic fertility & perinatal care.

“The mortality rate per 1,000 births was 0.35 in the home birth group, 0.57 in hospital births attended by midwives, and 0.64 among those attended by physicians, according to the study. ”

Hmm… nearly triple the chance of death (not just damage– DEATH!) with an OBGYN!

When we’re as wealthy financially as we are in other areas, I want to become this avenue of healing…
before my grandchildren are born!
Awesome opportunities for training all around me… soon…

Life is rich with natural, functional, healthy systems that really do work. Chemicals, Smog and sundry other nuisances obscure our view of the beauty around and within us that works well. That beauty exudes its richness through “Faith.”
The original word for “faith” in Scripture was “emunah”, and it had a lot more to it than the nebulous “belief” I was once taught.

Aleph-Mem-Vav-Nun-Hey: (read the opposite direction in Hebrew)
-Bull’s Head (Strength, First, Authority)
-Moving Water / Blood
-Tent Peg (Nail Down, Secure)
-Sprouting Seed (Offspring, Continuing)
-Man Standing in Awe (Wow, LOOK!)

Faith without works really is dead. The picture of Emunah (Original Faith) is Strength Watering and Securing the Sprouting Seed and Standing in Awe, Looking at the results.
Real Faith is real work, implementing the Natural Laws given in Torah, and seeing the results of working within those tangible, functional, “Good” Rules.  Emunah is really better-translated “Faithfulness.” When we are faithful to YHWH’s Teaching and Instruction, we experience the results of real, active, living faith.
If faith produces the Tov (Functionality / Goodness) described in Torah, it’s real faith, and you can hang your hat on it. Just like we invest strength in following the Natural Laws, planting a seed and watering it and watching it sprout and grow into food, there are a multitude of rich laws that can feed, heal, teach, and guide us if we’ll implement them. Faith that implements the Teaching and Instruction of YHWH is recognizable in the Tov it produces.

I’m so thankful for the different strengths my husband and I enjoy… nothing alike, but somehow it just functions well… extraordinarily well. Here are the Ancient Hebrew Pictographs of the words for Mother and Father… fascinating to me how it all fits.

I am Strong Water, and so are you, Mamma! Maybe that means we deserve a drink now and again, I dunno, lol–  but I do think it means we’re something vital and foundational to life.
As mothers, we nurture, or “Water” our families, and “Glue” our homes together. We are the pictograph of Strong Water:

Read Right-to-Left: <——- “Mother” and “Glue”
Aleph-Mem:
Aleph is the Bull’s Head, meaning Strength, Authority, and First
Mem is the Moving Water: the Source of Life
Mothers are a Strong Authority and Source of Life to their families.
This is also the word for “glue.” The Bull’s hooves were boiled down in Water until they were a thick glue that helped to hold the tent together– just like we are “bull-headed” enough to “hold it together” every day for our families. We are strong, ladies!

 

The last one was for the ladies. This one’s to celebrate the Dads. If we’re Strong Water, and the Glue that holds it all together, then the fathers are the Strength and Support Structure of the House. Here’s the pictograph:


Aleph-Bet:
Aleph: “Bull’s Head”: Strength / First / Authority
Bet: Tent Floorplan:  Home/ Protection / Structure
Fathers are a Strong Authority that supports the house. It is the same as the word for Tent Pole. The father is the one who holds the house upright, and gives structure and support to everything that the mother holds together. Fathers give the vital Strength and Protective Structure for the mothers to make a house a home.
Again, I’m not the expert: for more info on the pictographs, see
