I am really looking forward to Purim this year. It's coming up very soon, March 10th.
It's one of my favorite holidays, we get to dress up and enjoy a loud party. Even better, last night I had a shy young man at my door - unexpectedly - who asked to come in to "visit". I was pretty surprised by his sudden appearance at our home as he's never been to see us by himself. He's come to several of our get -togethers and attended the same Bible study we did when we first moved here. He's always been with his girlfriend. But I soon found out why, he wanted to ask permission to become engaged at our annual Purim party this year - of course, with out any knowledge of his future bride! That will be one exciting night!
If you haven't celebrated Biblical holidays before, this would be one to start with. Your children will never forget the story of Esther once you spend a night with friends and family focusing on her story and what the Bible says she did for her people.
My brother, who apparently has become a very good writer, has written a little bit on his blog, here. Go check it out.
