Shalom, my electronic family. I have been working on an article about Shavuoth, which is only 2 weeks away, but at this very moment I have no spare time. Remember, I am retired, more than once. I never anticipated that I would have this problem during retirement. Right now our garlic, shallots, onions and spring peas are coming in. Oops, forgot the blackberries and poke salad.
Now, for those of you who know Von know she is only about 5′ 2.5″ tall and not much over a hundred pounds unless she is soaking wet. ((She is very proud of that .5″ so I dare not leave it out.)) Some of the bunches of shallots are almost as big as she is. Today she cleaned 78 shallots from one bunch.
I want to thank Mr. Joseph Dumond for reaching out to me while I was in New Mexico. We had a very good conversation and I think that we agreed on a lot. Right now, we are still here in Texas and the new Super Cycle has begun but I have had so many request for time and I can not turn them down, also, we lost Mr. Cotton Dotson just a few days ago and had his graveside services on Thursday. There are not many of these valiant WWII veterans left so when you see one, hug them, tell them how much you appreciate their sacrifice and coronavirus be damned!
Why am I telling you all of this? Because time is running short and I do not know whether or not I will have time to write an article for Shavuoth, I pray that I do. I guess you are asking what is the big deal? Looking historically to what has happened on Shavuoth I believe something is going to be thrown down (destroyed), burned up or swallowed up on Shavuoth. What? I have not idea so, please, don’t say I am predicting the end of the world or that a meteor is going to come down and strike the Earth or that the money system is going to collapse. I am not! If anything goes down I hope it is my blood pressure. LOL.
Thanks to all of you who have reached out to Von and I about many different topics. I want to thank John Ford for all of his wonderful videos. Planet Prisoner, if you are out there let me hear from you please. Same for you Fiatflatline. Okay dokey?
Now, to vent a little, I am sick and tired of people telling me that all we can do is pray. WRONG!!! That is the most you can do. That is your MOAB, Mother Of all Bombs, the most you can do. We can petition the Creator to intervene in the internecine devices of men. Hello.
I will be gone some or most of this coming week to south Texas and I want to spend Shavuoth here in Normangee. We’ll see. After which I want to make my second trip to New Mexico. Hopefully, there will be a third. You still have time to get prepared for what is about to come but, you had better hurry and commit yourself to the outcome. PERIOD!!! Please don’t prepare for 6 weeks but rather one year or more. It is your choice.
Love you all. Please don’t hold it against me if I am unable to get the Shavuoth article out.
Num 6:22 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Num 6:23 “Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is how you bless the children of Yisra’ěl. Say to them:
Num 6:24 “יהוה bless you and guard you;
Num 6:25 יהוה make His face shine upon you, and show favour to you;
Num 6:26 יהוה lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.” ’
Num 6:27 “Thus they shall put My Name on the children of Yisra’ěl, and I Myself shall bless them.”
