O Abba,

I am in such agony. It would seem the enemy has, once again, played havoc with the meager plans we thought You had ordained. My feet have been knocked out from under me and I'm sinking fast into the dark, miry clay I thought I had left far behind me.

Help me, O G-d! Hear my cry for help! I am crying a river, my eyes are burning with tears. I am so heavy-laden with sorrow and pain I can hardly bear it.

My friends are crying out to You, stretched thin with disappointment and heartache. Be with them, I plead. Comfort them and grant them Your peace. Give them Your wisdom and foresight to be able to keep putting one foot in front of the other. I ask that You come close to them, heal them and strengthen them.

And, as for me, LORD, I simply request that the pain cease. I have been bleeding for so long; when will healing begin? Selfish, I know...please forgive me.

I believe that You are LORD.
I know You have things well in hand.
I await Your further revelation of direction for us all.
I thank You for Your constant provision and care.
I humbly bow before Your greatness now and always.

Blessed are You, LORD our G-d,
King of the Universe,
Who orders all our steps,
gives purpose to our lives
and numbers our days.

Be with us, I pray.
b'Shem Yeshua,

He hears our cry, He catches all of our tears. He loves us and holds us close.

Trust in the L-rd always, and He will renew your strength.

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…


I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.

So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
