Crazy Life!

Old Bathroom

Things have been a bit busy around our place as we work to sell our home and move a few hours north of where we currently reside. Along with packing, cleaning, homeschooling, work and other duties of life we also decided to update our Master Bathroom. Thankfully this is the smallest room of the house, so it didn't take too incredibly long. We replaced the flooring, sink and vanity. The whole room got a fresh coat of paint (actually three coats after removing wallpaper border and covering the dark tan it was before). We are pleased to see the improvements and are praying a buyer will be pleased soon as well.

Celebrating Passover

We are a non-denominational, Bible-believing Christian family that seeks to serve the Lord through continued understanding of His Word and the blessings of the Almighty. With all that said, we celebrated the Passover earlier this week as a tribute to the Jewish tradition and a reflection on the Ultimate Sacrificial Lamb, Jesus Christ, who came to save those who are lost. This event occurred through much reflection on the history of Passover and the Biblical context of the holiday. We used the book Biblical Holidays from Heart of Wisdom as our main resource for planning the holiday. We also did a lot of online research and Bible reading to further determine our evening plans. The result was a full night of celebration, focused on the Passover and the symbolism that points toward Christ as the Messiah.

Here are a few photos of our evening and a menu that we used to put together our Seder. The Matza Tash and Afikomen covers were made using supplies I had on hand. The Afikomen wrap says "Messiah" in Hebrew. The last photo here doesn't really show the food well. (I forgot to take a photo until after the meal had begun.)

While this was a fun menu for our first Passover, I imagine there will be changes to it in the years to come. Feel free to ask questions in the comment section if you are curious. I will answer them if I am able.
