Last month’s mail is finally here! Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in getting it published. My recent weeks have been filled to overflowing with raw material [if this term is unfamiliar, its definition and our best response option, Gardening, are explained on the website in the Glossary found under Letters From Home.] At its root, it means whatever we encounter is not the finished product; it’s not done yet. When we can recognize that reality, we are then able to Garden them into the beautiful tapestry of Life by working with the Holy Spirit as He applies Yeshua’s Perfect finished work to it.
I’m writing this on Easter Sunday, the day many churches celebrate the resurrection of our Messiah. I clearly remember the awe and tears shed the first time I experienced that day after finally seeing that His Resurrection was for me… that it was the Answer to my every need. Many years later, I still marvel at God’s Perfect Provision through the sacrifice of His Beloved Son, but I no longer prioritize celebrations that have come into being by any human’s best efforts to honor God. I find myself much more comfortable celebrating in the manner that He first gave us in Torah – the Moedim (appointed times) found in Leviticus 23.
Last night was Adat’s annual Passover Seder outreach and it was a glorious time of worship, joy and remembrance as hundreds from many different faiths came together to celebrate and honor our God. And I find that the more I purpose to remember God, what He’s done, what He says, what He requires of us disciples, the more in awe I am of Him. He is, as an old worship song so clearly says, beautiful beyond description, too marvelous for words, too wonderful for comprehension… and so as I reflect on that wonderful evening, I once again fall to my knees in gratefulness for His tender mercies which plucked me out of the mire of sin and selfishness so many years ago.
My prayer for you all in this beautiful Spring season is that you receive from our wonderful Lord the richness of His Presence and that He continues to bring fresh revelation of Himself at every opportunity in your lives, regardless of your circumstances and regardless of any limitations you may face. Our God is indeed exceedingly able to do far more than we can see or imagine or pray. So let’s celebrate Him together as we read the following testimonies of His grace and goodness!

“So they removed the stone. Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said, ‘Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the people standing around I said it, so that they may believe that You sent Me.’ When He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come forth.’ The man who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth.
