I was in the bookstore the other day. I did not see any interesting book(s) to buy but I thought these pins were interesting especially the last pin. It says, “I read banned books.” I smiled when I saw it. Click on image to read up close.
I put the ten commandments at my front door next to my peace lily. Love it.
Earlier this afternoon, I saw something that upset me greatly. It upset me so much that it made me cry. After I stopped crying, I took a nap. I have always had this re-occurring dream. I’m on a VERY long bridge and I’m lost. It always seems as though I’m about to drown on this bridge-water dream, sometimes the water rises very high and I wake up startled or sometimes the bridge runs out and I wake up startled because I’m about to plunge into the water. I’m surrounded by water (the ocean) and there is never another car on the road. Oh yeah, I was driving in the dream and always get lost. Just when I thought I was about to drown in the dream, I see this building ahead and I stop and ask three Gentile men in the building, who seemed to be maintaining the bridge, on how to turn around. They tell me how to turn around to get where I am going then I wake up.
Y’all know that water, oceans or the sea represents people and I do think that bridge…and I’m always on this bridge, represents a journey, a very long journey…but I still have not figured this dream out completely. Why does Yah keep sending me this dream?
Hey y’all. I have been M.I.A for a few weeks but I have been thinking about y’all. I heard Kendrick Lamar has a song out called “YAH” and that he knows that he is an Israylite however I have not heard the song yet. Speaking of Israylites, I saw on the internet that some Israylite congregations don’t want to be called “HEBREW Israylites” just “Israylites” because they don’t want to be associated with those that hang on the corner that hate the Gentiles. Do you have any thoughts about that?
Did you know that there is a translation of the bible called “Cepher”? Cepher means divine in Hebrew. From what I read…this translation uses Yahshua but for the Most High’s name it uses Yahuwah, which we know is not correct. Just wondered if any of you knew that. Yesterday, I bought a new book (insert studious smiley with the glasses here). Study y’all.
My next set of tassels. All blue(s)…all law, all the time.

Guess what, y’all? I saw the Jezebel spirit in action yesterday. I walked out of a store and this young lady was not listening to what her boyfriend was telling her. He told her that he would pick up the bundle of logs (for fireplaces) but she said no, that she would pick it up (and carry it to the car). Then he said no I will do it. She was about to speak again but I interrupted her saying, “Girl, let him do it” with a smile. So she smiled back and let him do it. I thought to myself after they walked away that the Jezebel spirit can be not always “in your face” so to speak.
The shine is so bright on this name. The camera will not focus. Or is it the camera?
The camera focused on the ornaments that I did in ‘Qodesh Bling-Bling’ part 1. What is going on here? I may try it again in another part of the day, when the light from the sun is different.
Okay, I finally got the picture. I had to play around with the camera shutter-thingy and the sunlight. I think this is the toughest picture that I have ever done. This is the best pic that I could get.
This is a picture of my raggedy bible. The pages are literally falling out. It’s in a
turrible terrible condition but I still love this bible. It’s the first bible where I saw Yah’s name, the NKJV. It was $4.99 at Walmart when I was broke but wanted to see Yah’s name back in 2010. The spine (binding) on the book is GONE! I have to pick it up with ease so none of the pages falls out. I have all types of notes in the small margins…on the top of the pages…on the bottom…everywhere. I have other bibles now but for some reason I always come back to the NKJV.
Today, I bought this new bible. It has my name ‘Ashantiyah’ printed in the right corner. Its binding is like an old fashioned ‘Reader’s Digest’ type book. It feels thick and sturdy. It’s a NKJV and Yah’s name is in Psalm 68:4.
I love that I can now put notes on the sides. Click the image to get a better view. I just don’t know when I will have time to transfer all my notes from the old bible to the new bible…..
The chain across my forearm with the menorah is 20 inches and the the chain across my forearm with the dove is 18 inches. Don’t worry about the sleep lines across my arm, lol, it was morning time when I took this picture.
A sista got some fresh new bling 🙂 (ornaments). You know there were 7 lamps in the temple. The dove, Noah’s dove, has an olive branch in her mouth. Did y’all know that Yonah’s name means dove? I’m sure you know. Something interesting that I was reading in Psalm 68:13 and Psalm 74:19 is that David knew the affection that Yah has for the turtledove and that Yah protects His people like a dove. Did y’all know that Yoseph sacrificed two turtledoves for Miriam in Luke 2:24 according to Levitical law 12:6-8 after Yahoshua was born? It almost seems like foreshadowing doesn’t it? Because later we all know that the Set-apart Spirit descended on Yahoshua like or as a dove (form). That or those dove(s) that went up to Yah came back down…And similar to how the dove came back to Noah…
This is what I have thinking about lately, the dove. Peace.
I was just thinking this morning about a scripture. A reminder. I like to make plans but it is Yah who directs my way (path). Proverbs16:9. HalleluYah.
