My heart is full....

because my husband is so good to me! The kids are at Granny's, so he took me out yesterday for a date. We hadn't celebrated our anniversary, so he took me to lunch at my favorite Greek restaurant...and then. And then. We hit 3 Half Price bookstores. :snuggle:

He also surprised me - when the kids and I started our Exodus from the church, he mumbling followed us...not really agreeing with it, but at least willing to listen to my reasons. It's been a long road...but yesterday, he told me he thought we needed to go deeper. :blinks:

So. Last year he was totally against a Hanukkah menorah in the front window; this year he's all for it. He picked up a book on celebrating the Sabbath (he brought it home Friday, no less!), and he wants to "do it right". :giggle: (It's TRADITION. But he wants to include MORE tradition. Right now, we have the special tablecloth, placemats, wall hanging, and candlesticks. A kiddush cup. We use the regular china (the fancy china for Feasts), because we usually eat on paper plates (to conserve water. We're in a drought) he wants to go deeper).

And he's decided to get serious about learning Hebrew. It was HIS idea to buy Rosetta Stone last year, but he hasn't actually DONE the lessons. The kids and I have...but only since this August, because I put it on our Lesson Plans (if it's on the schedule, it HAS to get done. :grin:)...only *I've* been lax, because it takes time and I'm usually working with one kid or another. So.....I have to make sure *I* do it, too.

The trip to Half Price #2 was specifically to get more Jewish and Messianic books - we went to the flagship store, and it's HUGE. We got....well, we spent too much there, but we've got a stack of books to read now, on the Sabbath, on Passover, and on basic Judaism. No, we're not going Jewish - I won't give up Yeshua - but we want to see what He would have done, so we can integrate it (and before anyone tells me that how they do it now is different from how He would have done it...yes and no. Most of the traditions go back to the Babylonian exile....and are similar to what He would have done. We're also filtering them thru Torah - I don't want to "add to", the way the Rabbis have. Some of the traditions aren't needed, as Yeshua fulfilled what the Jews were waiting's going to be fun.)

It's...y'all have no idea how big this is (well, Anna might. :lol:) He came kicking and screaming, and now I'm having to tell *him* to slow down. :grin:

He also bought me a lot of "fluff-books"....he knows how much I LOVE books. E-books are nice, and take up much less room....but there's something about a BOOK. The heft, the smell, the sound of the pages as they turn.......and he knows that. (We're out of space.....which is why I let him talk me into an ereader to begin with. I try to get most of my fluffy books on it, and the "extra" reading for the kids.....but that still leaves us with TOO MANY BOOKS. And we just added more.....oi. :lol:)

Gotta go milk.....then I get to spend the day reading while he makes Feta for Thanksgiving. :mmmmmm:
