Today is Sunday. Not the traditional Shabbat; but it’ll do. I’m always fascinated by the Jewish culture. Not in awe; but sometimes I am. I mean, I’m engrafted. But still so very much loved by our Creator.
Still, I think it’d be fun to celebrate Pasach in a traditional way, Shabbat on Friday evenings, and even use a tallit as I pray. But these are not necessary for my faith. I’ve even thought of starting the Wilson Celebration of Pasach: during the Holy Week, each night read Scripture, remember something God has blessed us with and enjoy a special meal with family.
My babygirl is only 4 months old. How fun would it be for her to have some traditions in her life?
A tradition doesn’t have to be super-special, it just needs to point at Him.
Maybe the first Saturday of every month we right down something/someone God has blessed us with, frame it and put it on a wall in the house. Reuse that frame until it’s full of listed blessings and start another picture frame.
Just some fun thoughts. Stuff to do to keep pointing the family towards God.
4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
