Purim Preparations

Hence the fun orange colour for our post today! Tomorrow is Purim, so this morning Princess and I are baking up a storm of Hamantachen (with apple)! Yes we are still in our pjs (at 10am) and having lots of fun!

The rest of CHC is on a field trip today, so the teachers of K & gr 1-2 were looking for something fun to do with those classes as they are not included this time in the trip. Hence the huge amount of Hamantachen! Princess is very excited to be able to go into CHC this afternoon to join in as Mummy is helping out. We find it is a very good way to teach our children Biblical principles and to follow the command given in Deuteronomy 11:18-22 ;

"Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates: That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth. For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;"

to teach them of the Feasts of Yhwh. Not just simply having a day of celebration, but reading the scripture pertaining to His ordinances on how to keep them, and what they were designed to teach the children of Israel, and hence to teach us. I am thrilled that they are doing this today because with Hubby in France for the week it was going to be a less then happy as usual Purim.

Here is the first batch cooling under the shade of the tulips Hubby got me last week, a wonderful reminder of his love while we are apart!

Mazol Tov.....Have a wonderful Purim!
