Happy Purim!

As some of you may know, today is Purim, the celebration of God working through Queen Esther to save her people! Unfortunatly, I'm (hopefully) getting over a bad headache that seems to keep moving to different places, so this won't be too long!

Here's MIT #2 as our little Esther all dressed up for our family Purim play.

At the bottom here I've listed some places you can visit to learn more about the holy day...

To read the Purim story from the Bible, go here, to the Book of Esther.

Growing in Grace Magazine put out lots of articles on Purim this month from a few different laides. Read Purim, The Holiday of Joy.

Purim Sameach,

I barely made it through gutting the deer! I have a very weak stomach and I get queasy at the sight of just a little blood, sometimes even just a thought of it!
I absolutely LOVE chalupas! I get one almost everytime we go to Taco Bell!

Have a great day!

Hi Serenity! We got our oil sprayer at a store in PA called "Goods". But I think you can get them at kitchen stores or maybe even at places like Walmart, Target, etc. Make sure you don't buy just a really cheap one though. We had one before it didn't work very well. Invest in a nice one!

Your little sister is so sweet! Hope you had a lovely Purim! Our bible study group just finished studying Esther and we went through the study of Purim a little bit. It was very interesting!
