Remembering Passover 2022

Hello, friends. I hope you are having a good weekend. A flurry of activity has been going on around here, and I wanted to stop in to document it!

We remembered the Passover on Friday evening. To me, it was so meaningful. I can hardly believe the great sacrifice the Lord made for little ol’ me.

Sometimes I hesitate to give too many details about my faith, because of the push back. But honestly, this is my blog, so I shouldn’t be scared. Still, it can be difficult to receive messages and emails that tell me that I’m quoting the “wrong” Bible version, or that the doctrines I believe in are false.

Basically, I believe that all of the Bible is good and holy, even God’s law. I believe that the Messiah is the Word (John 1), and so I take the Torah seriously.

We don’t follow every single thing in the law, but if we believe it applies to us, we definitely try to. We do this knowing that God’s grace fills in all of the gaps, and it is a blessing to walk as our Savior walked.

On Friday, I began to prepare a special meal leading up to the Passover. I was cooking and cleaning up a storm when my husband called me.

“You might want to come outside. There are two baby goats out here.”

What?! We weren’t expecting baby goats for several more days!

We excitedly went outside to check on her doe Nora and her babies. Thoughts of dinner and Passover gifts flew out the window.

I hope to share more about our goat babies soon. I told my husband that we are officially goat farmers now, ha!

Anyhow, after a late dinner, we sat down to read the story of Christ’s crucifixion. How blessed we are to receive this great gift!

I try to give my children a gift at each of God’s appointed times. We want them to associate the Lord’s Holy Days with joy.

We also read a few other books about the Passover, as it relates to the Exodus story. The Passover Lamb story reminded us of what happened in our own home just hours before.

While we didn’t rid our homes of all leaven, I plan to avoid leavened breads during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. This will be hard for me, since I love bread. But I think it will be a way for me to remember the importance of what the Lord has done for us throughout the week.

So anyhow, it was a good day! God is so good, isn’t He?
