Good Monday morning to ya! Thanks for joining the Barn Hop ladies, Amy from Homestead Revival, Jill from The Prairie Homestead, and myself, for another weekly round-up of linky love.

For the last Barn Hop of 2012 we’re making it a special Holiday Edition! We want to see how you are celebrating with loved ones and making the holidays memorable, so link up and share what you do to stay festive and joyful this time of year.

My family had a wonderful time celebrating Hanukkah last week. It was fun to watch how excited the kids were when I brought out our box of simple decorations, and how enthusiastically they all pitched in to make the dining room table look beautiful for the occasion. Even with a mild case of the stomach flu running through the kids, they all had such fun playing dreidels for chocolate coins. We have been so blessed by this celebration of the rededication of the temple, and we talked at length about how we can redidicate our temples (our bodies) in the coming year.

How do you celebrate the holidays? Link up and share below!

    We too celebrated Hanukkah last week. It was such a blessing to discuss Yahshua, as our light of the world, the servant candle. We have different colored candles that represent different things about YHVH. We tried to do some service during the week as well; although, some of the things fell through. We adopted a Scottish Terrier named Isaac that has been such a blessing to our family. :) Other than Isaac, we decided to forego the gifts this year, and our children didn’t miss them. HalleluYah! We checked out library books about Hanukkah, “Hanukkah at Valley Forge” being our favorite. We devoted the week to prayer and some fasting for precious Ms. Addy and rededicated our temples. It is a wonderful blessing to have others to fellowship with, even though it’s online instead of in person for now. :) May YHVH bless you!

    Kendra, I LOVE that you celebrate Hanukkah with the kids! We added a Passover feast to our yearly holiday celebrations a couple of years ago, and it’s been amazing how this celebration has brought us closer to Jesus. I think that celebrating the true Jewish holidays can really do wonders for helping Christ become more real to Christians. Thanks for sharing, Kendra!
