I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman. (Jeremiah 6:2 KJV)
But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. (Galatians 4:26 KJV
"THE MOTHER OF US ALL"
I am broken; Yet I love you with all my wounded heart.
I am singed, charred, and burned in the fires of our tribulation.
And yet my ashes, that were scattered, yearns for salvation.
My calling is persistent, excited, and impatient, I am impelled to desperate measures.
I am no longer that old wounded man, that transverse the back alley's of this cruel... (more)
With its main entrance in Israel, and its far wall in Jordan, the dilapidated old people's home, originally a luxurious mansion, towered over the neighborhood of Mamila. With falling walls and alleyways blocked by piles of debris, it was not the neighborhood of choice.
On summer days, when snipers would hide from the punishing sun and not attempt to shoot the occasional passers-by, the old people would open the metal shutters that protected their large window, and sunbath. It was on one of these days that Mathilda, suffering from a cough attack, had dropped her teeth to the ground below.... (more)
... As more defenders were killed or injured, we runners found ourselves taking on new roles. Judith, the medic took charge of our training. She was one of the oldest defenders – maybe in her mid twenties – and everyone obeyed her. She taught us how to administer a tourniquet, and scolded us when we giggled in mouth-to-mouth resuscitation lessons. I could see that she was hiding a smile, and I was not afraid of her. I wanted to be just like her. It was then that I vowed to become a nurse.
In our weapon lessons, Judith gave each of us a pile of empty magazines and ordered us to scrub... (more)
The defenders used my knowledge of the city to pass massages between the posts. I became a runner. We can’t see the posts from here, but they were nothing more than ordinary apartments: bedrooms, kitchens and living rooms.

... of my notebook into a mud puddle on the way to school." Solomon tells us that the sluggard or lazy man always has an excuse. Solomon's example is that there is a lion outside and it might eat the sluggard. Indeed there were lions roaming Israel at the time of Solomon, but not in the streets of Jerusalem! Note that the sluggard is afraid he will be killed in the streets, not in the forest! It seems that lazy people have no lack of imagination when they need an excuse, and the more outrageous the better! The real question is "why does a sluggard need an excuse?" Why doesn't he just say, "I... (more)
