Happy Passover


Tonight is the first night of the Passover Festival, celebrated by Jews around the world.  It is a time of remembering when the Jews were slaves in Egypt.  God used Moses and Aaron to free them.  That would have been enough (Dayenu) but then God parted the Red Sea and allowed them to pass dry, preventing the Egyptians from following.  That would have been enough (Dayenu) but he fed them for 40 years in the desert before bringing them to the promised land.

Passover is a holiday of celebration, the celebration of Freedom.

The Freedom to live and worship as you please.  The Freedom, sometimes, to have a little fun with it all.

Enjoy this video and have a Happy Passover.

 

I will be back in 2 weeks


I wanted to tell all of my readers that I will be away for 2 weeks. My oldest grandson is graduating and I am going to watch all of them while my daughter finishes her work for the year. I will try to blog while I am away but I will be busy. I wish you all a wonderful Memorial Day.I will be looking forward to reconnecting with my WordPress family.

Without Any Further Ado…


Today, spring has moved into the neighborhood and I have spent so much time today enjoying it. I went to Yoga class and when we go out I wanted to drive west itl I got to the Pacific Ocean. It isn’t what I did though. It is like a perfect day here and so I wanted to give a little of my day to you who share my writing life. There is much grilling happening and I won’t torment to with that but it does smell wonderful.
