Fast and Furious

October 2, 2009 at 4:50 am 1 comment

Yom Kippur was really really good.  We went to Dr. Danashfar’s house about noon. Read the book of Jonah. And discussed it. Then we took turns reading from a Siddur or Kamash or some book which gave prayers and confessions.  This was the “Day of Atonement”.  The book we read from was prayers of Praise to Yahweh and prayers for forgiveness of sins, those known and unknown, intentional and unintentional, etc.  We had been fasting since sundown the night before. And I mean FASTING, no food, no water, no nothing.  I did take my thyroid medicine because I did not want to mess it up but it’s so small I could swallow it dry.  This was the first time I had fasted without water.  We had done a 3 day fast before but water was allowed. You can really tell how much water is needed when you do without it.  It’s really good to put down the flesh with fasting but I’m so glad this is the only feast that requires fasting. After sundown, we ended the fast with a delicious meal that was truly international. Dr. Danashfar is Iranian and many of the dishes were also Spanish.  The Bockchoy was superb (a soup with green spinach, I think).  Talapia on taco shells. Frijoles. So much more good eats.

Then, tonight we had Hebrew class. It’s coming along. So many rules, so little brain (grin).

So, Saturday is Shabbat and Sunday at sundown starts Sukkot (feast of Tabernacles). Which goes till Monday week. (8 days). Living Water Ministries ( has a camp near Lake Meredith.   That’s where we’ll be.

See why I said Fast and Furious?

    MoriYah,Great to hear from you! By all means, yes I can elipaxn this! I’m glad you asked! I have taken the liberty to recruit my wonder father to answer this question, as I felt he was a whole lot better at elipaxning it in a way that others could understand, than I could. But, since it will take a little bit of room to elipaxn it, I have had him write an article about why we believe it is the Gregorian versus a Lunar calendar and I will be posting it up as posts, so please do follow it! It would just take up more room than I am allotted in a comment. Please do feel free to ask any questions and my father would be very happy to answer them for you.Shabbat Shalom,Samantha
