B/W, for you To Color---and add a scripture if you`d like!


PS adding a color version with a fitting scripture suggested from the comments!!  Love that scripture, and thank you for making it an interactive post.
Its fun, if anyone else has a scripture, please add it too...!! The birds by the way are supposed to be sparrows!!  So here is a song to go with it, Even the Sparrow KnowsMay it bless you especially those who are worrying about something, let it go and "don't let the trouble're not on your own...If He can hold the world He can hold this moment.  Not a field nor flower escapes His notice....Even the sparrow knows He holds tomorrow....  Carefree in the care of God you'll find that He's enough."  ♬(lyrics by Jason Gray, Sparrows)
Jesus cares so much for each sparrow, so know you how much he cares and loves for YOU!!! ♡

The birds of the sky dwell beside them 
and sing among the foliage.  

Psalm 104:12

Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself
in which to set her young,
near Your altar, O LORD of hosts, 
my king and my God.
Happy are those who dwell in Your house;
they forever praise You.  Selah.

Psalm 84:4~5

Prayer Sheet---Parsha Metzora

Just sharing here a few scriptures from a weekly prayer sheet I make.  
You might like to pray the intercession scriptures for your child or loved ones!!
Enjoy the drawings too! (you may have seen them before in a recent post!)
Blessings and Shalom! A good and peace-full day or night to you.  Good dreams.  May God's Kingdom of Heaven come to Earth and more and more  in real life today.

Much Love,

notes: the way the prayer sheet works, first PRAISE the LORD, then take a few minutes in Confession, next give thanks for specific things the LORD has done in your life.  Next for intercession pray the scriptures in each section over your children and as indicated in the sections below, or of course as you are moved to !--pray for your children (or loved ones), for your congregation or all Body of Messiah, pray for Israel.  Each week the prayer sheet relates to themes taken from that weeks parsha.  This is  a "sampling" from Parsha Metzora.

Metzora  "infected one"
theme scripture from the parsha:
to teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean.  This is the Torah of tza'arat
Leviticus 14:57
Blessed be my LORD! Day by day He bears our burdens--the God of our Salvation! Selah.
Psalm 68:19

Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your mercy.
According to Your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Psalm 51:1~2

Let the shalom of Messiah rule in your hearts---to this shalom you were surely called in one body.  Also be thankful.  Colossians 3:15

INTERCESSION (Put in Your Child or loved one's name in the blanks to pray them over her or him)
May..........................focus her mind on things above, not on things of the earth.
Colossians 3:2

Now,.....................why are you waiting?  Get up and be immersed, and wash away your sins, calling on His Name.  Acts 22:16

May........................enter through Messiah Yeshua into the promises of God, may he/she cleanse her self from all defilement of body and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.  2Corinthians 7:1

Pleasant words are honeycomb---sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.  May ...........use pleasant words!! Proverbs 16:24

Loved ones, now we are God's children; and it has not yet been revealed what we will be.  But we do know that when it's revealed, we shall be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.  Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.  1John 3:2~3

"But for you who revere My Name, the sun of righteousness will rise, with healing in its wings.  Then you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall.  You will trample on the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I am making"  says ADONAI-Tzva'ot.   Malachi 4:2

Psalm 118:26

Matzah and Blossoms, Spring Green and Tambourine, Pesach Sameach

A long title, and a short post to wish you a Pesach Sameach!! As the Blossoms turn to spring green, reflected in a Tambourine!!  Time to change the header to "Matzah and Cherry Blossoms"!!

A song of Praise,
with blessings,
with LOVE !

The singers go before, the musicians last, between maidens beating tambourines.
"Bless God in the congregations--
ADONAI, from the fountain of Israel".   Psalm 68:26~27

Passover Post-cards as the blossoms give way to new green!

 H A P P Y     P A S S O V E R !

You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free!

Timbrels and Matzah , O my!

As the Cherry blossoms are fluttering off the trees, in a soft and  flutter,
and the leaves turn to green
the season is flowing in perfect harmony into the days of  Passsover
  as if it was out of  a movie scene.

As we prepare to clean our hearts of leaven
and our cabinets of hametz,

a delivery arrives.
Matzah!  On time!

And then the doorbell rings again.

Oh heavens!

Shabbat Shalom!! the last Shabbat before Passover!  The Great Shabbat (this Shabbat is called Shabbat Gadol! the Great Shabbat)~~~!! Notice:  This  Post may contain photos and scriptures to follow, for now just posting a few words in the excitement of receiving the Matzah and the timbrels!!  You may be able to guess the two scriptures I have in mind!!  (OK, if anyone is up for the challenge, and gets them, then a tambourine is in store for you!)!! Blessings and Love,  Shayndel, off to clean my cabinets!

Nisan 1 Reflections

Today I am His bride.
He said the words "I forgive you."

He told me I don't have to keep apologizing over and over,
for the things of the past.  He has already forgiven.
He said it's done.  I'm forgiven.  He has done it.
Clothed her in righteousness.
His bride.

Through His once and once only sacrifice of Himself.
There is no bridegroom
like The Bridegroom, Yeshua.  There is no other One.

Today, its Nisan 1.

 The wedding is set,
through time eternal, though when the actual
wedding day will be only His Father knows.
The bride is approved and sealed, as only through the Father can we be given to the Son
in eternal betrothal.

Today is the month of springtime
when everything begins a new.
Receive His bouquets of blossoms.

Everything, Yeshua,
begins with You.

                   with You.

I said  I will prepare the bread, beloved.
It will be the taste of
cherry blossoms.
 This time, the guests will partake with You.

5.  I'll pour the wine,
He said.

This time, it's
all New Wine.

I will drink it together with you,
my bride.

6.  All welcome the Sabbath, singing,
"Lecha Dodi".
All rejoice in the new month of Rosh Chodesh Nisan.

Now ADONAI spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, "This month will mark the beginning of months for you: it is to be the first month of the year for you. "  Exodus 12:1

Shabbat Shalom!


notes on this post:  I was so excited today's Shabbat was Nisan 1~ !! The first day of the first month , the month of springtime on God's Calendar.  Passover is on the 14th day of Nisan.  This is writing that just came from my reflections in the morning of Nisan 1, from a personal conversation with Yeshua and my excitement for the first day of Nisan.  I have written posts that are more "explanatory" about Nisan if you would like to read more about this month on this blog please see here

Blessings and a Happy Nisan 1

Morning, afternoon, blossoms! Psalms!

Ascribe to the LORD the glory of His name;
bring tribute and enter before Him,
bow down to the LORD, majestic in holiness.
Psalm 29:2, 1 Chronicles 16:29

Glory and majesty are before Him;
strength and splendor are in His temple.
Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.

Declare among the nations,
"The LORD is king!"

Psalm 96: 6, 10

Blossoms and blessings in the light of evening

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, Who brings on evenings with His word, opens gates with wisdom, alters time periods with understanding, changes the seasons, and orders the stars in their heavenly constellations as He wills.  He creates day and night, removing light before darkness and darkness before light.  He causes day to pass and brings night, and separates between day and night--ADONAI Tz'vaot, is His Name.  May the living and enduring God continuously reign over us, for all eternity.  Blessed are You, LORD our God, who brings on evenings.

---evening prayer, Maariv, from the Art Scroll Siddur "Blessings of the Shema"

Blessed evening and morning to all, bless the LORD who brings on mornings and evenings with His word.

Blossoms and Birthday in the Spirit!

Yeshua answered, "Amen, amen I tell you, unless one is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.  What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Do not be surprised that I said to you, "You all must be born from above."  John 3:5~7

Therefore if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation.  
The old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.  

2Corinthians 5:17

This year my "spiritual" birthday came in full blossoms!!
Today is my born-again birthday!!  Five years in Messiah Yeshua!!

Walking out amidst the blossoms that speak of re-birth I looked up to heaven in thanks for the re-birth in my Messiah!!

Breezing past bunches of blossoms seen from the bus, I breathed in the day.

This year my spiritual birthday also came on the day of the spring recital!! I was in a recital of students age 5 to age 75 for the voice training lessons I take!! Three years ago, I started taking voice training because of back problems.  After finding out I would need to strengthen the muscles around the spine to avoid further problems, I started taking voice training!! It became not only a way of healing my back,  it has opened a new door to sing songs of Praise to my maker!! And share and minister His heart to others through the songs!!  As well as get to know and grow with a wonderful teacher, who is also my friend,  and be part of the spring recital and continuing learning...and healing!  Thank you Yeshua!

Blossoms and song, a family atmosphere and listening to others share their gifts  was a beautiful gift to me as well!!  I never imagined I would be singing in front of people, and the thought of being "good" or not didn't even cross my mind.  Its funny as I am not a "singer", but  I know it is a gift from God to do this voice training,  and if He wants us to share something, then its something we will be delighted to share!!

  You must be born again I tell you!!  That is what Yeshua, Jesus, says!

Thy Kingdom come, on earth as it is in Heaven!
The youngest student performer in the recital today was 5 years old!  I think now, that is the same age as my years since being born anew!! We can be 5 again, through being born in the spirit!! We must be born again, says Yeshua!!

And for a gift for you, here is the song I sang---it is a  beautiful song by Misha and Marty Goetz called "The Plans I Have for You",  that they wrote together based on the scripture of Hope that many of you are familiar with from Jeremiah 29:11.

As in Japan a new year starts in April, after the cherry blossoms, it seemed like a fitting song to sing when many of the students would be graduating and going into a new school year.  I translated part of it with the help of my teacher in Japanese, so we added some verses in Japanese so those listening could understand the words!!  It will be a little while still and  a few more years training until I share my singing here!!! Please stay tuned with patience!

Meanwhile,  I will share the anointed singing by Marty and Misha, from Jerusalem!!Its a beautiful song, and a beautiful backdrop, please enjoy it HERE!!

  With a message of hope for all.
 It says
" I know the plans I have for you!  You're always on my mind.  And all the thoughts I think towards you are lovingly designed.  To bring you through and give to you a future and a hope.  They're for your peace they're for your good.... the plans I have for you!"  (from lyrics by Marty Goetz and Misha, based on Jeremiah 29:11 )

Cherry Blossom Fragrant air

Its happening, we are entering the cherry blossom season!!  It is like an anointing in the air.  Its not even a scent , but rather an infused sense.  Palpable in pink, and yet it doesn't really have a color, its just like the air is cleansed from the opening of the blossoms, and

Everything is bathed in its fragrance.

You'll want to look up towards heaven, as the blossoms open first one by one, and then all at once!!
