The Time of One’s Death

A good name is better than precious ointment, 
   and the day of death than the day of birth. (Eccl. 7:1)

I recently read an article from the Hebrew4christian website titled “He was Born to Die – The Focus of the Christmas Message…” It’s an article worth reading in its entirety. I have learned so much from Hebrew4christians. It is my very, very favorite website.

The Year of the Snake

When I was a child, my Mom sometimes bought canned Chop Suey, which she heated and poured over chow mein noodles. I liked the chow mein noodles, but the Chop Suey was full of unidentified “things” and it was not very tasty or appealing to me. For years and years I avoided Chinese food because of Chop Suey.

Our Hanukkah (Days 1 – 8)

I have decided to combined all the nights in one post rather than do  a new post each night. I will update this each evening. Scroll down to read the Scripture for the new candle.

JJ and I have been celebrating the eight nights of Hanukkah by saying the blessings and lighting the candles. Each evening we light an additional candle as JJ reads the blessings in Hebrew and either he or I  repeat them in English. We read the same blessings and Scripture each day, adding the Scripture for the new candle.

EJ was able to join us on Day 5. He read the blessings and scripture in English and JJ read the blessings in Hebrew. It felt particularly special to have EJ celebrate Hanukkah with us. I made latkes and we ate them with applesauce, which is traditional Jewish Hanukkah food. Latkes are a potato pancake. My friend gave me her Jewish grandmother’s recipe. You can find the recipe at my other blog: http://wp.me/s1HoGH-latkes. See pictures of tonight’s Hanukkah celebration here: http://wp.me/P22QEm-oV

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU!

I thought I’d share one of my favorite Christmas songs. It’s a song that I haven’t heard in years. I like it because it makes me think…

Here is another Christmas song that I really like called “How Should a King  Come”:

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
