The Feast of Unleavened Bread...Day Three

Wednesday brings us to Day Three of our celebration of the Feast of Unleavened Bread!

Some of the activities we went through on Day Three of the feast...

We kicked off the morning with singing our song again and I couldn't believe how much they had remembered since yesterday! That song is totally a Yah-given thing and it is helping us to really keep thinking on him!

I printed off THESE GREAT BOOKLETS for the kids to do. We sat down as a family and I read through the text in the booklet. It breaks down Exodus 12 and then has some little word activities which Stass in particular really enjoyed.

I really loved having Dad here to read aloud some portions from an encouraging book he's been reading. He read aloud a part that talked about the feast of Unleavened Bread.


Some of the things we ate on Day Three of the Feast...

Breakfast:
Yep, oats again! We love our oats!!! And cereal for some people too.

 Snacks:
Fruit today

Lunch:
Pasta Bowls with some Dolmio sauce, cheese and olives. One of my all time fave kind of lunches!

Dinner:
Beef, Vegie and Cashew Stir Fry with thick rice noodles


Last year Brett made a yummy unleavened loaf in the bread maker. So he decided to have a go again this year. It turned out really well but a little doughy probably for some people's liking. He added almonds and honey this year and we had some after dinner when it had come out of the bread maker all warm with some melted butter!


Some of the readings we went through on Day Three of the feast...

One of the things I really have come to cherish about the feasts, is that during this time we can't help but really love being in the Word of Yah! It excites us to read passages about how the feasts were celebrated during the history of Yah's people and also of the great symbolism which points to our sinless Messiah. Praise him for his Word!


Tonight, Brett read aloud to us from John 6:52-51. This is the passage where Yeshua (Jesus) says He is the Bread of Life. Love this passage :)

The kids draw or listen while doing something with their hands and every now and then we stop reading and ask some questions and it really does go in! It's amazing how much they get out of these special appointed times


Don't get me wrong...it hasn't been all roses this week!
Brett has done his back in. We've had some hard accusations. We also had some discouraging comments from family. The kids fought terribly at the start of the week. My back (sciatica) has been playing up too. Zippi has not been sleeping well so has been in our bed and is kicking me alot. Ethi got sent to bed while this lot of reading (above) was being done. You know, sometimes doing what Yah has set out is hard. But it is so worth it too! We know that there are battles that wage on in the realm that we cannot see (Ephesians 6:12) but we also know that the Mighty Hand that delivered Israel from Pharoah can and will also deliver us from any and every trial we face when we are totally dependant upon Him.
And the joy that we have experienced this week has far outweighed the hard times anyway.
Yah, may your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven!
Mould and shape us to be more like your Son, Yeshua!

More tomorrow,
Love

Sending lots of postive vibes that Zippi will learn to sleep soundly through the night and be more relaxed and restful.

Sleep deprevation is never fun (been there, done that).

Take care and have a wonderful long week end. From Susan McGuire xxoo
