Happy, Healthy and Sweet

Tomorrow night the new year -- 5772 -- begins in the Jewish calendar. The traditional wish is "Shanah Tovah," wishing a sweet and happy year, and we dip apples in honey to symbolize that wish. This is my wish for all of my friends in Blogland, a sweet, happy and healthy year. I will be at services on both Thursday and Friday. Our services are approximately four hours each day and one of the things I like to do is bring a list of special intentions to pray for. If there is special intention that you would like me to add, please post a comment. I won't be blogging until Friday night or Saturday, but I will be checking this post for your comments. Theresa, you know I will be praying for Justin and his colleagues.

Happy, healthy and sweet...Tomorrow and all through the year!

My grandson went to a Jewish Preschool and it was wonderful. And I remember this day. Happy, healthy, and sweet to you.



Shanah Tovah to you Buttercup.

Happy New Year to you. I was the assistant to the teacher for a few years who is Jewish. So I am aware of the Jewish Holy days. She would be off work those days to attend services. One year we had an interesting combination. The teacher who is Jewish, me and I am Lutheran and the other assistant was a Muslim. That was the year I learned a lot. Learned about Ramadan too.

Pray for health and peace.

IT is indeed Rosh Hooshana, I went to a church where the Pastor and his wife were Jewish and they taught us so many Great things, LIke the meanings of Hannukah and Purim and I am so glad my kids learned all of these things as well. WHile doing some family Geneology, I learned that my husbands Birth Dad was a Jewish immigrant......I know the Jewish line only follows the Mother.....but I still say my kids are Jewish in some ways. After all in the Bible the geneology follows the father...all those scriptures so and so begot so and so....you get it!!!!
Any way
have a Great Happy New year and a Blessed one at that
