My new sister-in-law is coming to celebrate Thanksgiving with us. I spoke with her the other night to talk about the menu that weekend and at the end of the conversation she told me that Hanukkah begins the Wednesday before Thanksgiving this year. She said she has never celebrated Hanukkah without a menorah and wondered if it would be okay for her to bring it.
A few years ago I would have said yes, but I would have completely missed out on the excitement and joy of this experience.
Jesus was Jewish! He celebrated the Festival of Lights every year of His short life. Can you imagine celebrating the Festival of Lights with the Light of the World standing by your side?
Just thinking about it… takes. my. breath. away.
I am so thankful to have my eyes open enough at the moment to see what a blessing it will be to celebrate the Festival of Lights in our home with my sweet new sister.
Thank You my Light, my Love, my sweet Jesus!
