I write this post in an awesome place. I sit, cross legged on a lounge chair on the balcony of a fabulous condo on the bay of Orange Beach, Alabama. One son is downstairs on the doc looking for fish with his dad and one son is inside, playing with his beloved Yoshi. Life is good.

And that is a wonderful thing, because why we're down here is for a reason very few in this world understand. We are celebrating something called the Feast of Tabernacles. Very few understand what this means, very few even care. I won't go into the specifics, but it's a very important Holy Day time for us in our religion. It symbolizes the 1,000 year period after Christ's return when God will rule as the government of this world, instead of the evil, human world we currently live in. It's to be a time of much rejoicing, joy, happiness, and fun. It is to symbolize a time when there will be no more sorrow, hate, tears. The deaf with hear, the blind will see. No more pain, suffering, only joy. It's hard to imagine but many of us dream of that time, wait for it patiently.
   So we will finish our time at the Feast and enjoy it so, knowing we must go back to our lives in the world, but we do our best to learn, listen, and strive to keep God with us every day, all day. It's a very important lesson for me as a mother to teach my children, and they look forward to this time, rightly so, even if not for all the same reasons I do at this time.  Thankfully they have cute little videos like this one, from my old pal Jonathan and his crew. His church put together this cute video explaining what the Feast is to our children. Take a look if you wish. :) 
  I can't wait for a time when my boys can pet a lion and ride a bottlenose dolphin. :) Happy Feast!!Amy
