My husband is taking me on a second honeymoon in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary, which was this year. He is so sweet! We are leaving this weekend. So I will be gone from blogging until January, around the 6th or 7th of January. I have several series running at once on the blog, some of them which have been going for over a year. Here are the links to the first posts in each series, I thought it might be a nice way to catch up if you want something to read in the meantime. There is a link at the bottom of each post to the next post in that series, up to the present (some of the links were broken, but I went through and fixed them all this morning, so there should be no problem following each series from beginning to the present).
The first post in the Holidays series (discussing Christmas, birthdays, and biblical feast days)
Somewhere in the middle of the Holidays series, I started posting about the Sabbath, but that began confusing the flow of the Holidays series, so I have removed the Sabbath posts from the Holidays series, and the Sabbath posts make their own series now.
The first post in the Sabbath series (it used to be a part of the Holidays series).
The first post in Has the New Covenant abolished the Torah series: The righteousness that is of faith
The first post in the Safeguard your investment in your children series.
The Safeguard series morphed into the Ten Commandments series, because we saw that obedience to God safeguards our children.
The first post in the Ten Commandments series (please do read the posts linked in the first paragraph of this post, explaining why obedience to the Commandments is key to safeguarding our children; that obedience to the Commandments has not passed away; and that the Commandments summarize the entire Law of Moses and define the Law of Love. Then, if all the theology becomes wearisome, please read one family’s story of how parental obedience to the Commandments not only safeguarded their children, but the Lord miraculously returned and restored the one who had been lost to Himself and the family. We serve an awesome and amazing God who is true to His word in every particular!)
May God’s blessings of grace be upon each and every one of you as this year concludes and the new year begins. See you in 2008, Lord willing!
