While I was sick and being I am still recovering this is our first Shabbat that we will be honoring again since end of November. We recently informed the kids that this is what our Friday at sundown to Saturday at sundown would consist of. They didn't seem to pleased. In the past it mostly consisted of them playing outside or watching movies.
This Shabbat we have planned for them to read parts of the bible, lead a prayer with the younger ones and tell us what they think the verses meant. Of course they will not be teaching our younger ones as they are still too young, but they will be assisting me in coloring for them and keeping them quiet while daddy teaches us.
Some of the snacks I chose for us is popcorn, salad, fresh fruit, granola, pudding, and pizza. I have found myself getting rather creative and easier as the weeks go on. For this weeks study with our kids we have chosen to elaborate more on respecting our elders. Going into a deeper detail on sin and why we shouldn't do it. I have to say as we teach them what we would think are simple things in the bible like going over the 10 commandments we are learning so much more. It's a new level for us but thankful that we still have the opportunity to do it freely in our home without risking being killed for even having a bible in our home.
So Shabbat Shalom to all of my friends and readers. After this weekend I will try to get together what we learned and what scriptures we talked about. It could be something that you could use.
