The Blossoming Challah










 Mixing the Cherry Blossoms flakes into the dough is always sublime, as they disappear into the mixture from sight, but there remains the infusion of Cherry Blossom.   Cherry blossoms paste is rolled into the strands.






In a Messianic Japan, the challah blossoms before the cherry blossoms.
The seasons of our King are a harmony.  Watching in anticipation for the spring is like when you have a song to sing and the words begin to fit the music.

I can't really explain all that is in my heart,  but want to post some of the pictures of the sakura challah that have been blossoming in the meantime, before making a space for some Purim Posts.

Hope you are enjoying the season and wishing you a happy time in Purim preparations and eager anticipation of the spring blossoms, and for the song

Blessings and Shalom, Love Shayndel


Just posting this quickly before the Purim posts!! Tomorrow will begin Purim in the evening, wishing all a happy preparation and a smooth fast if you do the Esther fast. To remember how the Jewish people were threatened with being wiped out, there is a day of fasting to remember, and then to enter into the Joy of their being saved through Esther and Mordechai, there is the joy of the feast.  God remained "behind the scenes" but we know He purposed all for His Glory and planned all for His purposes.  On Purim we also rejoice to see His Hand in every thing!!

    I can see you're very much in love with the 'sakura' and you succeed in making me love it too. Thanks for the tutorial.

  4. Beautiful challahs with cherry blossom filling.
    It is one of the most beautiful stories in the Bible how Esther and Mordechai saved the people of Israel by the hand of God.

  5. so lovely to see and read about the Cherry Blossom flakes in your challah bread. As you know I have been away from my blog(I'll post something short on my blog later today or tomorrow) but I wanted you to know when I arrived home this morning I saw the cherry blossoms out. It isn't really early for them but last year they were out so late and the year before it rained a lot so I didn't get to enjoy. I'm hoping this year I will enjoy them more. In case I don't visit again real soon, (early) Shabbat Shalom
