Sukkot Song by Steve McConnell.
Jem and I love to sit in the sukkah and remember all the blessings that fall on us daily. We're blessed to have family nearby and enjoyed celebrating our grandson's birthday in the sukkah this year. It's hard to believe he's already eleven! Where did the years go? He's such a sweet boy, and he's such a joy!
This year, Jem used elephant ear leaves and palm fronds to cover the top of the sukkah. This was a great idea because not so much golden rain fell inside. But we had some blossoms get through -- and we could still see the stars through the roof. I love seeing the little flowers fall on my journal .
It rained a lot last week, so I spent more time on the porch than in the sukkah. I had some wonderful times of stillness as I looked out over Golden Pond, watching and listening to the birds, butterflies, and bees. I'm so blessed.
As I was still, reflecting, and praying, I felt Adonai encouraging me to leave the sukkah up for a while, so we will. He also impressed on me to use it as a prayer place.
Adonai showed me some other things about the days ahead, and I'll share those in a post later this week.
Blessings and shalom to you, Gail-Friends
