Happy New Year!

Wednesday evening marked the start of Rosh Hashanah- The Feast of Trumpets.
It's the biblical new year.
old testament and new, you should look it up;)
Jesus celebrated it.
To sum it up:
and the return of Christ!

Me and Derek made some Challah.
Biblical braided bread.
(say that 3 times fast! )

So yummy. I did feel bad b/c it's my brothers favorite.I know he would love to be eatin' it.
Last year we celebrated Rosh Hashanah with my mother and brother. we missed them this year.

One of the traditions is to eat apple dipped in honey symbolizing a sweet year.
So we did that the first night with dinner.
Then for the second night i made an apple dessert.

Apple Pie Pockets.
Inside is a combination of butter,honey,cinnamon,sugar, and apples.
Really good. We ate them with vanilla icecream.

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Messiah will rise first" (1Thessalonians 4:16).

For us the blast of the shofar at Rosh Hashanah is not just a call to repentance, but a reminder of Jesus' return.
And we blew it loud!
