Sing to the LORD!!


 I am ADONAI your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

---Exodus 20:1  TLV

This week is a week to fall deeply in love with the Master of the Universe.
If you haven`t already done so.  And even if you have, it is a time to go deeper into that love as we read Parsha Yitro for this coming Shabbat.
Parsha Yitro is the Torah Portion that has the giving of the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai.

God`s laws were spoken, written on stone tablets and then on our hearts.   May our hearts melt with Love for our Creator as we desire to know Him, to follow his Law, and to see how that Law is a Love that is so great and so far-reaching that extends over all the universe and into our very own each and individual heart. 

Photos and story update:  since last week of Tu B`Shevat, I have an ume tree on the balcony! Photos include bringing it home by bicycle.  
The city views are not from the balcony, but just put in a few from this week to show you  a view of our city!  Blessings and Shalom!! 


ADONAI spoke with you face to face on the mountain from the midst of the fire.
(I was standing between ADONAI and you at that time, to tell you the word of ADONAI, because you were afraid because of the fire and did not go up the mountain.)
He said:
"I am ADONAI your God, who brought you out from the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
You shall not have other gods beside Me.
Do not make for yourself a graven image--no image of what is in the heavens above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.  Do not bow down to them or worship them.  For I, ADONAI your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and on the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, but showing lovingkindness to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My mitzvot.
You must not take the Name of ADONAI your God in vain, for ADONAI will not leave unpunished anyone who takes His Name in vain.
Observe Yom Shabbat to keep it holy, as ADONAI your God commanded you.  Six days you are to labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Shabbat to ADONAI your God.

---Deuteronomy 5:4~14 TLV*
*this is from the first Five of The Ten Words (please read the full Ten Words both Exodus chapter 20 and Deuteronomy Chapter 5 and this weeks Parsha Yitro.)
