Thinking about the Feast of Tabernacles.....
It is really a shame that we don't have a week long festival every year for us to stop and take a break from our regular life. How wonderful it would be to be able to spend a week with friends and family, remembering all of the wonderful things the Jesus has done for us. Can you imagine the wonderful buffet dinners that could happen from "booth to booth"?
I was wishing for that week long time to just stop and reflect.
I am so incredibly thankful for the different people who have intersected my life in different seasons. The couple who shared this booth with me have moved to Florida. While I was writing this post I realized that I have never told them just how important this teaching was to me. I will need to send them an email as soon as I post this blog! Even though we don't celebrate this festival, we can still stop during this season, and reflect on the goodness and blessings of Jesus. It is a great time to share our testimony with others. It's a harvest time, so we can also eat some great things, and share them with others. And we can remember, also, to be grateful for all of the people who have enriched our life.
Jesus, thank you for speaking to me through the Feast of Tabernacles. I am so thankful that you have "tabernacled" with us through the Holy Spirit. What an amazing reminder this is for us to stop and remember all of our blessings. Holy Spirit, bring to our minds the people that we may need to bless or thank. Thank you Jesus for bringing the Bible to life through things we can see and touch. Amen
