A fun family picture during the holiday of Purim (Book of Esther) from 2 years ago (we're missing our newest addition to the family in the picture :))

Celebrating the holidays in Israel have such a rich sense of meaning to us. There is a tangible sense of pureness in the expression of our faith - it's a total personal thing but that is part of what we love about living in the Holy Land! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Purim is an extremely spiritual day dressed up (pun intended) as a holiday for kids. There is nothing childish about the meaning and significance of the day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A critical part of the day is the message that God is involved in every aspect of our lives and it's not always going to be in the big flashy miracles (splitting the sea anyone?) but even when life just feels like life and the challenges seem hard He is there in the background pulling the strings, moving the elements in his love for us. There were no outright miracles that occurred during the story of Purim, in fact God's name isn't even mentioned outright in the text. But if you go one level below the text you will find countless hints pointing to Who is truly the one in charge. So much more to say but will leave you with this for now! ⠀
