Happy Hanukkah to all my fellow gardeners, readers, and friends. As you light the first candle tonight, may the Light of Elohim enter your home and shine among you all eight days – and throughout the coming year.

May you and your family enjoy the celebration of His protection and deliverance.

Shalom,

A Holy Convocation

“Seven days you shall over an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be a holy convocation unto you; and you shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and you shall do no servile work therein….Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered the fruit of the land, you shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.” (Leviticus 23: 36, 39)

On this final day of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles), may you have a special day of communion with the Lord, and may His presence fill you to overflowing today and in the year to come.

Shalom,

As the Jewish new year begins, and the heavenly books are opened, may you find peace with our Father God and with each other. As you hear the sound of the shofar, may your eyes look above to your Creator. And as the Days of Awe begin, may you be inscribed in Elohim’s Book of Life.

L’shanah tovah! Chag simeach! Happy Rosh Hashanah/Yom Teruah! May this new year bring you the sweetness of His blessings, His presence, and His joy.

Blessings & Shalom,

And what I know is that I’m spending Labor Day, laboring in MY dirt. So, for this week, there’ll be no Sanctuary Gardener Update – though I will have my Garden Bounty pictures up tomorrow. Have a great holiday, everyone. May cooler weather and soaking rains soon follow us into our fields.

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Independence Day from my garden to yours!

May you have a wonderful day of celebration with family and friends, eating the bounty of your garden, and enjoying the freedom that so many gave so much to provide. May God bless America, and may He give us the strength to maintain that freedom, enabling us to emulate our Founding Fathers by pledging our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

Have a blessed and safe Independence Day!

As we light the third candle tonight, may we thank Elohim for His mighty hand in preserving His people – both then and now. “Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” (Psalms 121:4)

May the light of His presence surround you and your family this Hanukkah season. And may He who makes peace in the heavens, grant peace to us and to all our people. And let us say, Amen!

Happy Hanukkah!
