Good Morning Xangaland!


So today is the day!


In *EDIT* 7 hours my house will be full of people ready to celebrate this day.


Here is some information on what Rosh Hashana is for those of you that are interested.


Rosh HaShanah literally means, “Head of the Year.” It is the Jewish New Year because it begins the High Holy Days, usually falling around the Gregorian calendar’s September or October. Originally commanded in Leviticus 23: 24 and 25 to be, “a rest, a reminder by blowing {of trumpets},” Yom Teruah literally means, “Day of Blowing.”


Rosh HaShanah is a festive day of fun and feasting. It ushers in the countdown to Yom Kippur and begins the time of cleansing and purification of the community in preparation for the plea for yearly atonement on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.


As Believers in Yeshuah Rosh HaShanah also reminds us that we are waiting for the last shofar to sound on the day of our Messiah’s return (Matthew 24:31, 1 Corinthians 15:52).


Everything is ready.  The house is clean and the yard is done (for the most part)  I have to make the Tzimmes still and pick up a few things but I’m pretty much done!  This should be fun.  I will try to take pictures of everything, it should be a really neat evening. 


Then in a day or two I will put up pics of the yard, I forgot to take pics of it before it got all moved around and redecorated for tonight, so those are coming soon.


In the mean time here is a picture of Ryan holding our new Godson.



This is the first time I have ever seen him hold a baby under two months old!  He is so excited to be “The Godfather” LOL  Hey look you can see his scar from the killer pole in our backyard!


Here is one of the new proud papa!



He looks so very happy!


Okay all I’m coming around to visit and then I have got to get going on this day!


*EDIT* Okay I visited it took me an hour and a half… gotta get going now!  lol

  1. cute baby!
    our pastor was talking about rosh hashanananananana. at least that’s what i call it. hehe. but didnt go into that much depth, if he did i must of blanked out, which is possible. there were papers handed out about it and he called on the whole church to fast at some point during it.
    sorry about ur 107 degree weather. u suck anyways cuz it’s hot again!!…

  2. I like this song. I saw him in concert. Of course it was about 20 tears ago but it was great. Hope everything goes great today.

  3. I’m jealous. Things have been so busy with Nora that we barely have time to celebrate Christian holidays, much less Jewish ones! And it kind of makes me sad because I want her to understand that part of her family and culture. But she’d be to little to understand anyway, so I guess it’s OK this year. Have fun!! And don’t forget the Challah, it’s the best part!! -Michelle

  4. Sounds wonderful. What neat symbolism…that I’m sure wasn’t intended. A holiday to celebrate the anticipation of the final trumpet call…and stating that your house was ready. What an uncanny testimony…to have you house in order and ready, just as God told us to do.
