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!   
  John 8:32

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.
