May – I am Hidden
Hidden is the Hebrew tsāphan and means hidden, treasured, protected.

One thing I have asked of the Lord, that will I seek: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple.

Yom Kippur
The Veil has been torn!
April 16, 2019

The Day of Atonement Art Card is from the Feasts of Israel Fulfilled Collection at Flower Girl Greetings.com

On that Roman execution stake, Yeshua cried, “It is finished!” Our sin was crushed and our redemption was secured. The thick veil was torn from top to bottom and opened wide to welcome us into God’s presence! The deep tones of these ancient blue, purple, and crimson dyes were extracted from the mollusks found along the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Their vibrant hues declare the message – There is no fear, only peace and joy!

Beautiful Progressions of Repentance, 3 of 3

Repentance---3-Progressions-3-of-3

Beautiful Progressions of Repentance, 3 of 3 
Matthew 5
Free PDF Download

Introduction
Repentance is beautiful. Understanding it is the key to a life of increase and joy in the Holy Spirit. In the first paper called The Progression from Brokenness to Wholeness, 1 of 3, I shared insights into Psalm 51 and David’s prayer of repentance. In the second paper, I shared the way to stay in humility by abiding. I was amazed then to find a third progression of repentance as I read Jesus’ message on the mountain in Matthew 5.

Introduction
Repentance is beautiful. Understanding it is the key to a life of increase and joy in the Holy Spirit. In the first paper called The Progression from Brokenness to Wholeness, 1 of 3, I shared insights into Psalm 51 and David’s prayer of repentance after his gross sins of adultery, lying and murder.

Beautiful Progressions of Repentance, 1 of 3  
Psalm 51
Free PDF Download (Printable format)

Introduction
Repentance is beautiful. Understanding it is the key to a life of increase and joy in the Holy Spirit. That is what I found in the early months of 2019 as Father unfolded these three progressions in Scripture. They are detailed but simple when read step by step. Toward the end of 2019, on 8/8 and 12/12, I experienced the beauty of repentance tangibly. I’m still trying to write about these revelations, but they were so personal that words currently escape me. My Scripture Study called The Tabernacle Hesed Moon – Living in His Undeserved Love was a start. This paper begins with the first of three progressions.

Lloyal was Not Forsaken—A Tribute

Dear family,

Within the Portrait Art Card Collection, Flower Girl Greetings spans the ages. The original artwork for the Lloyal Art Card was given to my friend, Brenda, for her birthday.

The card was painted with watercolor from a photograph of her father whose name was Lloyal. (See the Art Card at the end of this post.) Mr. Lloyal Burkey inspired me with his loyalty to the Lord Jesus Christ over many years and his passion for his Lord’s love letter, the Bible. He read the Bible through every year of his life. This card was a tribute to his life. I penned Psalm 119:105 over the pages of his Bible, “Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
