Top 10 Hebrew Words of 2022

Happy New Year, Friends!

A great thank you to all who have had a peek at this blog and who have shared it with others this year. I still maintain that I do this for my own benefit, but I’m happy that it has also blessed and helped others. It has been a tough year for me as I continue to navigate widowhood, but I was blessed with so many lovely comments from you, the readers. Your encouragement, which often popped up on the darkest of days, has kept me going.

I was also blessed with visits, this summer, from my dear friends. My best friend from my youth, Anji, came in July and we travelled to Îles de la Madeleine, a tiny crop of windy Islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. In August my Ontario Library peeps joined me in PEI and we toured around as the “Travelling Librarians”. And finally, in early September, my best friend from University, Natasha, came from Edmonton, Alberta, and joined me in the woodsy tree tops as we luxuriously camped out at Treetop Haven in Albany PEI. There’s something about soaking in a hot-tub under the stars in the middle of the forest that makes you feel very connected to, and in awe of, the Creator of the Universe. I highly recommend the experience!

Friends: Penny, Kathy, Judy, Anji, Natasha, and me.

The photos in this blog posting were all taken by me during these lovely, reinvigorating, visits. Thank YHWH for friends… they have helped me realize that I am not alone and that I am loved and cared for… even when I struggle the most. Friends really are a blessing from God to lift one’s spirit!

So there you have it… 10 Biblical Hebrew Words… 10 pics of my wanderings this year… 10 reminders that YHWH is good!

Psalm 34:8-22

Taste and see that YHWH is good; how blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.

Fear YHWH, you His holy ones; for to those who fear Him there is no lack of anything. The young lions do without and suffer hunger; but they who seek YHWH will not lack any good thing.

Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of YHWH.

Who is the person who desires life and loves length of days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

The eyes of YHWH are toward the righteous, and His ears are toward their cry for help. The face of YHWH is turned away from evildoers to eliminate the memory of them from the earth. The righteous cry out, and YHWH hears and rescues them from all their troubles.

YHWH is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The afflictions of the righteous are many, but YHWH rescues him from them all. He protects all his bones, not one of them is broken.

Evil will bring death to the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will suffer for their guilt, [but] YHWH redeems the souls of His servants, and none of those who take refuge in Him will suffer for their guilt.

As we all venture onwards in 2023, let us remember just how good and wonderful our Creator is. We are not alone; with God on our side we can face anything! Pain and heartache will undoubtedly be part of our upcoming year… we will have moments of ill health and personal disappointments; we will face adversity… but are never alone.

God loves us and He wants us to reflect His love around the world, even when we are struggling. So this year let’s amaze this world with our love, our arms open wide to every single human on this planet, because that’s what being an image bearer of YHWH looks like… that’s what we were made for… that’s what we are called to do. Just a little bit of love can make a massive difference, so in 2023, let us love one another in ways that will shatter expectations and change the world! 

Next week: GOLD
