Heartwarming days with homeschooling happen frequently! We are so hugely blessed. One of my favorite days this week found the Hale family celebrating a kid's style Passover. Now, I do not claim to be an authority on the subject but we learned together what Jesus was doing at the Last Supper. What a great hands-on experience!
There were two hand washings during the celebration. So, we passed basins around and everyone washed. Then we dipped the bitter herbs in salt water to remind us that the Egyptians were cruel slave masters and made the Children of Israel cry tears as they cried out to God. God heard the cries of His children and sent a "redeemer" named Moses to rescue His Children. Here we paused as we remember that God always hears the cries of His children--cry out to Him and He will hear and redeem. God sent us Jesus as the ultimate redeemer to rescue mankind. Still today if we can just remember to cry out to Jesus, He is there to help!

|The lamb symbolizes the redemption sacrifice and sin offering of the children of Israel. Jesus, the final perfect lamb, paid the price so we will not face judgement.|
