Shabbat Today

Posted By on November 13, 2010

I have been re-thinking my last post, where I said that Samuel was warm due to being in the wind. Last night, Hannah and Lucy needed GOOT and today, several of us have sore throats. Perhaps Samuel brought something home from the hospital from Isaac’s stay.

Needless to say, I was up late, playing nurse, making Cold – Sore Throat Tea, giving drinks from straws, applying cool washcloths, wiping noses, taking to the potty…. and it has continued today. The girls and I did watch a chick-flick last night, tho, so that was fun.

So, we had a lazy day. We rested more than usual for Shabbat. Our living room looks like the hospital room, with several beds made up and children clopped around on the floor. They were up off and on, playing chess, sipping broth and soup, and are currently watching The Black Stallion. It smells like an Italian eatery from the GOOT, and I think everyone will be dozing off soon…

I tried to get some of my Drafts posted, but that was an epic fail today.  The good thing is that it lead me to study the Scriptures for the past few hours. All praise to the Father.

I am going to get myself a fresh-picked grapefruit. We found a tree down the road a few weeks ago, met the owner, and Eric and Hannah and Matt went a couple of days ago and came home with a few dozen. I can’t believe there are any left, but I am sure it would do me some good!

May you have a week filled with the Father’s Shalom, and may you draw closer to him than you have ever been. May you be continually blessed.

Numbers 6
…bless the people of Isra’el: you are to say to them, 24 ‘Y’varekh’kha YHVH v’yishmerekha. [May YHVH bless you and keep you.] 25 Ya’er YHVH panav eleikha vichunekka. [May YHVH make his face shine on you and show you his favor.] 26 Yissa YHVH panav eleikha v’yasem l’kha shalom. [May YHVH lift up his face toward you and give you peace.]‘

    Love you sister; we do need to chat on skype or phone soon…Saying a prayer for all the sickies to get back to health and rest! Praying also for Grandma seeing as it is the 15th tomorrow…I’m sure she is thinking of Grandpa. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since he passed! God is gracious and His mercy endures forever. Love to all of you

Welcome. I'd like to say that I'm first a 40-ish yr old woman with all of my likes and dislikes, but let's face it, Firstly, I'm a mom to 9 wonderful people, young and old, from ages 23 down to 3. That's my main life: loving, walking with, learning with, teaching, and being driven crazy by my kids and their antics and also being amazed by their capacity to keep loving a person like myself. So, I'm a 40-ish home school mom - teacher of the last 6 of my 9 kids, hoping I don't screw them up too badly, but knowing that they are probably all so awesome they will turn out much better people than I am. For which I am very GRATEFUL. Namaste.
