    From Mrs. Noah

         Join Hannah, Max, Mrs. Noah and many of their friends as

          they explore the Torah and the awesome stories and

                lessons waiting to be found.

    Part 1

    At The Mountain

     

    Continued from last week: Hannah and Moogy searched for Max and Cecil, who were lost in the crowds at Mt. Horev. Finally, in a basket of blue yarn, they found Max. They discovered that Max was hiding because Cecil had fallen out of his pocket – and he WAS afraid to tell Hannah he couldn’t find him.

     

    Hannah was worried that a little mouse, lost among a bunch of people – people that DID NOT LIKE MICE – was in trouble! “Where should we look!” she said frantically.

    Just then, Moogy, still perched on Hannah’s shoulder, shouted, “Max, there’s Dodi, your friend from Egypt!”

    Max waved to get his attention. Dodi was carrying a pile of skins toward the area where they were making one of the tents for covering the Tabernacle. He turned and smiled when he saw Max. Then he started walking quickly toward them.

    “Have you seen a mouse?” Max hollered.

    “A little grey one?” Dodi replied.

    Max was excited. “Yeah! Have you seen him?”


    Just then they heard a scream. “I’ll bet he’s over there in the animal skin area again. He’s been scaring a lot of the women,” Dodi told them.

    They all ran toward the big tent full of animal skins. Several women were screaming as they stood near a table where they were sewing the skins together. Dodi saw Cecil as he slid behind some baskets and under a table piled high with tanned ram skins. A man heard the women’s screams and chased after Cecil as he scampered out of the big tent and over to another one.

    “Why is he running away? Didn’t he see us?” Max panted as he ran with the others, trying to catch the little mouse.

    “You go that way, and I’ll go around the back,” Dodi told Max. “Hannah, you stay here so at least ONE of us will spot him!”

    But, Hannah walked slowly around to the front of the big tent and peeked in where they were finishing the goat hair tent that would be a covering for the Tabernacle. She knew that there were 3 layers of materials – one of goat hair, another of ram skins dyed red, and, over that, a covering of fine leather made from sea cows (whatever they are). [Ex 36:14&19]

    Dodi came around the corner. “He ran that way – over toward where they are making the priestly garments!” he called out. So off they went, past the tent that smelled so good, to several tents filled with beautiful fabric. But, no sign of Cecil there. Then they wandered around looking – AND listening – for clues to help them find the lost – now run-away – little mouse. [Ex 39:1-]

    In one of the tents, they saw the breastplate that the High Priest would wear. “Look, they’ve made thin sheets of gold and slit them to make threads,” Hannah whispered. “They’re weaving them into a design.”

    “Hey! See that? They’re also weaving the blue thread with the red and making the color purple. What are they making – a coat?” Max asked.

    “It’s called an ephod. It goes over a white tunic – like a real long shirt,” Moogy told them. [Ex 39:2-7]                                                    

    “The colors are beautiful!” Hannah noted.

    “Look over there,” Max said. “What is that?”

    “That’s the breastplate for Aharon. He will be the  High Priest. See the beautiful stones? There is  one for each of the 12 tribes of Isra’el,”  Moogy said. [Ex 39:8-21]

    Just then she saw Max running toward her. “He’s up on top of the tent!” he called out. Hannah looked up just in time to see Cecil sliding right down the tent toward  her! She jumped over a tent peg, reached out and grabbed him right before he hit the ground!

    “Is ‘bout time!” Cecil snarled as he glared at Hannah. “Where hab jue been? I tought I wad gonna die here!”

    Hannah was stunned. “How about a ‘thank you Hannah for saving me’?” she strongly suggested.

    “Hannah! Look,” Dodi exclaimed. “Moshe is going from tent to tent – checking each of the items for the Tabernacle.” [Ex 30:42&43]

    “Well, they’ve been working on it for a long time – maybe it’s almost ready?” Hannah answered, as she dropped the little mouse back on the ground.

    “We’d better go back to see Mrs. Noah,” Moogy told them.

    “OK. See you later, Dodi,” Max said. “Close your eyes, Cecil, and remember Mrs. Noah and home.” (They didn’t want to leave Cecil behind!)


    Part 2

      Back at Mrs. Noah’s

     

    “Oh, my!” Mrs. Noah exclaimed. “You startled me. But, you’re just in time. I was about to start putting together all of items to build a new model of the Tabernacle. Hmm, I see you found Cecil.”


     

    Cecil lashed out. “Didja see all da gold an neat stuff  dat dose dumb people jus GAVE ta Moshee!”

    “They were offerings for YHWH, Cecil. And only those with a willing heart COULD give. Yah didn’t want anything from those who weren’t excited about giving,” Moogy told him. [Ex 35:5- , Ex 35:21&22]

    “It was amazing to see how they all gave so much to build the Tabernacle,” Hannah said, as she started helping Mrs. Noah put the Tabernacle model together.

    “They all worked so diligently. They would have worked 7 days a week, if YHWH hadn’t told them they’d better remember the Sabbath day,” Mrs. Noah added. [Ex 35:2 & 3]

    “Do you think it made YHWH feel better to see them all working together, so hard – to make a place for Him to live with them?” Max asked, working hard to help, and still feeling guilty for ruining the first model they had started.

    “I wonder what would happen if EVERYONE today worked like that,” Hannah said, as she finished painting the curtains to the Holy of Holies. “If everyday, people looked for ways to build a friendship with YHWH,” she pondered out loud.

    Then Max remembered. “Hey. Didn’t somebody promise that anyone who was hungry and thirsty for what‘s right would get a free meal?”

    “You’re close. Yeshua said, ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled,’ ” Miss B told him. [Matt 5:6]

    Then she picked up one of the curtains to give to Hannah for the wall around the courtyard.

    Max began painting the matchbox that was to represent the Tabernacle – being careful not to mess up the curtains Hannah had painted. “That’s a big word. Jus’ what’s rie-ches-ness?” Max asked.

    “It means doing what is right. Yah wants us to do right, which is to follow His teachings and to treat each other fairly,” Moogy said.

    “I think that’s why people read and study the Bible. They’re hungry and thirsty to know more about this God, who is very REAL. So they look for clues on how to learn to be friends with Him, like Moshe did,” Mrs. Noah told them. “They want to understand and follow the instructions He gave to the whole world at Mt. Sinai.”

    Max dripped some of the gold paint he was using, grabbed a paper towel and tried to wipe it off his shirt. “Like the Isra’elites FINALLY decided to do? They got
    busy and worked really hard on the Tabernacle so Yah would come and live  with them,”
    he said.

    “Watz da big deo. Dhey couldn’t keep all dose waws anyway,” Cecil grunted,  “dey jus caused watz o twobble.”

    “Hmm. Do you know how many times in the Scriptures, the guidance and instructions – the Torah given at Mt. Sinai – is called wonderful, perfect, and
    greatly loved?”
    Mrs. Noah asked.

    “That’s right. Even King David wrote a lot of songs about how much he loved YHWH’’s teachings,” Miss B added.  [ Psm 119:97, 103, 105, 113, 117 -]

    “Oh, yeah? Wats bout jue Je-zus?  Wat HE say bout dis ole waw?” Cecil snapped back.

    Mrs. Noah looked at the doubtful  little mouse. “Cecil, Jesus IS Yeshua. He is the One Who said we would be blessed if we hunger and thirst … but, let’s look and see  what He said about ‘The Law’,” she said, as she opened the big Bible on the table. Here is one place in the book of Matthew – Yeshua says, Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.’” [ Matt 5:19&20 ]

    “I dun’t teace nutten,” Cecil mumbled.

    “Dummy!” Max muttered. “We all ‘teach’ somethin’ by what we DO!”

    “That’s correct, Max. We are all an example – of light or darkness,” Mrs. Noah said thoughtfully.

    “I just thought of something,” Hannah changed the subject as she was looking at the curtains for the Tabernacle. “It’s about the colors of the curtains. Yah wanted them to use Blue, Scarlet, and Purple. I think I heard that they took the Blue and wove it with the Scarlet – Red – and it made Purple! Isn’t that cool?” [Ex 36:8]

    “Doesn’t the color Blue mean, or stand for, heaven? And Scarlet/Red stands for blood – or mankind? Then, bending them together – makes the color Purple – which stands for Royalty? That’s Messiah Yeshua!” Miss B was excited that she had figured that out.

    “I think that YHWH wants us to ‘blend’ like the colors in the curtains. If we know Him, and think like Him, that’s the Blue. If we are humans – people – and follow what other people do – that is Red. If we put the Blue in with the Red, then we are Purple! We have Him, his teachings, woven into US!” Mrs. Noah told them.

    “How do we know WHO is Purple?” Max asked.

    “I know He wants us to love each other. He taught that from Adam and Havah,” Hannah said. “Aren’t the last 5 commandments about loving other people?” she wondered.

    “Yes, but the Scriptures say Yeshua gave a new commandment. He told people love each other. He said that’s how we would know who is following Him – if they love one another,” Miss B said. [John 13:34 ]

    “The reason He gave that as a sign, is because He knew that a time would come when the people would love themselves more than others,” Mrs. Noah told them.

    “So, in working together to build the Tabernacle, the Israel’ites were not only learning to love Yah, but also each other,” Hannah realized.

    “Hey, getting back to Mt. Sinai,” Moogy said, as he read more. “It says that after Moshe checked everything, he put the 2 stone tablets – with the Commandments written on them – into the Ark they had made.” [Ex 40:20-]

    “Yeah!” Max said, as he read on, “Then he attached the poles to carry it, covered the Ark – and they put it into the Tabernacle,” Max read. [Ex 40:21-]

    “Moshe put all of the things they made into the Tabernacle and made offerings to YHWH,” Moogy read on. [Ex 40:18-29]

    “After they set up the courtyard, and the curtain covering the entrance, it was all DONE,” Max announced. [Ex 40:33]

    “Wow!” Hannah exclaimed. “Look what happened then! Yah actually came to live there!” She looked, hopefully, at Max. “Want to go see?”

    “Aah -ahh – ahhh,” Max stuttered.

    But it was too late. His imagination was already thinking about the Mountain, and how scary it was. So off they went.

     

    Part 3

    Back at The Mountain

     

    “Look, Hannah. Moshe has just put up the curtain to cover the entrance. It’s all done,” Max told her. [Ex 40:33]

    Just then, everyone watched, amazed, as the cloud that was covering the LORD came down and settled on the tent of meeting, and the light of YHWH filled the tabernacle.

    “Wow! The cloud is so thick! AND, something glowing inside has filled the whole Tabernacle! Moshe can’t even go in!” Max cried. Then, before Hannah could stop him, he disappeared – again!

    “Max! That’s the presence of YHWH – His glory,” Hannah shouted after him. But, he was gone. She felt alone, even though she was with all the people of Israel, as – with the darkness surrounding them – the cloud filled with fire! [Ex 40:34&35]

                                                            * * * * *

    They FOUND the Aviv barley in Israel this last week (as the TORAH instructed). So, this new moon
    – will be the NEW YEAR, and we will begin our countdown to all of the Appointed Times YHWH told
    us to set apart to meet with Him this next year. [Deut 16:1 ]

    There is a ECLIPSE of the Sun on March 20th – NEVER seen before! Can you draw a line from the clues about this set apart day?

    24 – Vayikra Torah Tales Levt 1 :1 – 5:26
         

    From Mrs. Noah

    Join Hannah, Max, Mrs. Noah and many of their friends as

    they explore the Torah and the awesome stories and

    lessons waiting to be found.

    Part 1

    In Mrs. Noah’s Attic


     Continued from last week: Hannah and Max were at the Tabernacle, Max disappeared – AGAIN! Meanwhile, Cecil was hiding again, or really sneaking around, in Mrs. Noah’s attic. He poked here and there, looking for some stale cookies (they are much better than fresh ones). He thought he might take one to his friend, Max. Max was downstairs looking for more information about the Hebrews – the children of Avraham,Yitz’chak and Ya’acov.

    Suddenly, Cecil heard some muffled crying. He listened closely, then slowly followed the sound to a large box stuck back in a corner of the old attic. He peeked inside. There he saw a plastic bag, with lots of brightly colored teddy bears inside! But one little bear, a pink one, was sitting on top of the bag – crying!

    “Wat’s yo probwem?” Cecil snapped at the little, weeping teddy bear.

    She looked frightened as she tried to speak to the small mouse. “I, I, didn’t get to go to Is, Is, Israel!” she sputtered.

    “Is-weal?” Now that sounded familiar to Cecil. Why do YOU want to go to Is-weal?” he asked.

    She sniffled and told him, “Miss Jere’ and Miss Louise went to Israel to take warm coats, hats and gloves to some of the people who were kicked out of their homes in Gush Katif – in the Gaza. Those people lost everything!”

    “Watz dat dot to do wit a fuzzy  widdle bear?” he snarled.

    “Miss Jere’ got almost 200  of us bears to take to the children. It was VERY hard  for them to lose their homes,  schools, and all of their  friends, too. But …,” she started to cry again. “There wasn’t enough room for  all of us, so some of us got left behind!” she sobbed.

    Cecil was curious now. “So watz Mrs. Noah gonna do  whit’ all jue guys?”

    “Well,”she told him, “since Mrs. Noah got us, she decided to give us to children in the hospital – or children having other tough times – like being sick or when someone dies. See my tag?” He looked at the tag. It said, “SOMEBODY LOVES YOU”. “But, I – I wanted to go to Israel!” She began crying AGAIN. Her soft fuzzy fur was getting matted.

    “Ahh – I tan help jue wit dat. I jus dot back from dere!” he bragged. “Hey, watz jue name?”

    “Uh, uh … I don’t have a name.” Then, she started crying again.

    “Stop dat!” he demanded. “We jus’ give jue one! Ahhhh … who waz it dat waz suppoze ta take jue ta Is-weal?”

    “Miss Jere’ and Miss Louise,” she sniffled.

    “Ok. We call jue Jere’ or Wol-ise. PICK! Wat jue want?” His impatience was beginning to show.

    She thought for a minute. “I think I like Louise best,” she decided.

    “Ok, Wol-ise. Here’s wat jue do. Ca-wose jue eyes, tink ob da Is-weal-ites, and stick ca-wose to me,” Cecil instructed.


          Part 2

           At Mt. Sinai

    Louise opened her eyes and gasped. They were in  a big yard with a fence all around them. She saw  saw a funny house in front of her, mostly covered with a big cloud! She could see animal skins were covering the house, like a tent. She also saw that the front of the tent had 5 gold posts with beautiful blue, red and purple curtains covering the entrance. Fire and light glowed from inside the cloud. [Ex 36:8-9, 39:32, 40:34]

    “Where are we?” she whispered .

    “See datt man in font of da tent? Datt’s Moshee. He tawts wit da Dod Man,” Cecil told her. “AN, da Dod Man tawts to Moshee.”

    They listened for a few minutes. Louise didn’t understand what she was hearing. “Off-rings? What’s off-rings? An-a-moes? Cecil, what is this place?” she demanded. “Why do an-a-moes have to be put on a fire?” [Levit 2:6]

    “Uh, uh,” Cecil stuttered, “I tink maybe ….” and he was gone.

    Part 3

    Back at Mrs. Noah’s

    “Where did you go?” Hannah snapped at Max. “I was all alone out there watching the cloud filled with fire!”

    Max frowned, got a cookie and tried to ignore her. Then he noticed Cecil. “Oh, hi, Cecil. Where ya been?” he asked as he noticed Cecil sneaking a cookie off the table. Cecil looked guilty. “What have you been up to?” Max asked, still ignoring Hannah.

    “Nutt’n,” he said as he stuffed some crumbs in his mouth and more in his secret pocket. But he didn’t look at Max, or any of the others. Mrs. Noah watched as Cecil fidgeted with the spoon on the table. He pushed it, pulled it, and even sat on it. He still didn’t look at any of the others. He was very quiet.  “Cecil?” Her voice was soft, but firm.

    The little mouse looked up at her, his face filled with guilt.

    “Otay. I waz up in da attic, an, an,” he sputtered, “I foun a widdle oh teddy bear.”

    “A TEDDY BEAR? One of MY teddy bears – that didn’t get taken to Isra’el?” Mrs. Noah exclaimed.

    “Uh, huh,” he admitted. “She waz – ah – sorta cwy’n, ‘cause she di-n’t get ta go ta Is-weal. So, I twook her.”

    “You took her – to Isra’el?” Hannah gasped.

    “Where in Isra’el did you take her? Cecil, you’re not good at using your imagination yet. Where did you leave her?” Mrs. Noah was getting upset.

    “I, I tink we waz back where I waz wost. Dat guy, Moshe, was wistening at da place where da cwoud waz. Da God waz twelling him summ stuff bout off-ring an-ni-mules,” Cecil grumbled.

    Now, Max was getting worried. “The Mountain? Mt. Sinai? Where the smoke and fire …? We better go find her – right away!”

                                                                       

    Part 4 

    Mt. Sinai – AGAIN  

    Hannah looked around. She saw Moshe still listening to YHWH as He gave the instructions about offerings and sacrifices for the people to give Him.

    “Psst, Hannah,” Max whispered, “look over there.”

    Behind the laver, the basin for washing hands and feet, something VERY pink seemed to be hiding.

    Hannah went around to see what it was.There, curled up so no one would notice her, was the little teddy bear.

    Louise looked up at Hannah. She was scared – and had been crying again. “Hello,” Hannah said softly. “My name is Hannah. That’s Max over there.”

    Just then they all heard YHWH explaining to Moshe about a grain offering. [Levit
    2:1-16]

    Louise looked at Hannah with her dark eyes. “Where are we?” she sniffled.

    “Come on. We’ll take you back to Mrs. Noah’s,” Max told her.

    Part 5

    Cookies with Mrs. Noah

    Mrs. Noah had fresh oatmeal cookies and hot apple cider waiting for them. She smiled at the little bear. “And what is your name?” she asked.

    “I think it’s Louise,” she mumbled softly. She looked around and saw Cecil, who wouldn’t look at her at all.

    “Cecil, do you have anything to say to Louise?” Mrs. Noah said.

    Cecil grumbled something and slipped off the table, ran across the room and disappeared through a crack in the wall. Mrs. Noah just shook her head.

    Louise looked confused. “What is off-rings? Why does The God want off-rings?”

    “Louise, let’s see if I can explain. Do you know about different languages?” Mrs. Noah asked her.

    Louise looked puzzled.

    “Well, people from other parts of the world speak different words. In Mexico they speak Spanish. In Germany they speak German. In Israel they speak Hebrew. The Hebrew language is fun. It’s like making a cake,” Mrs. Noah told her. “Each letter is a new ingredient. So, just as each cake has different ingredients, and each new item changes the taste – Hebrew words change with each new letter or – make another meaning.”

    Hannah, Max, Miss B, and Moogy all listened, too.

    “Each letter has a meaning?” Hannah asked.

    “Yes. Each letter is like a little picture – all on its own. When you put them together, they make a new word picture – or a new kind of cake,” she said. 

    “OK, OK. What does that have to do with offerings?” Max snapped.

    “The picture that the Hebrew letters in the word for ‘offering’ show us is that offerings are there to bring us closer to Ya-hu’wah,” Mrs. Noah said.

    “Ya–hoo–wha? Is that The God? The one Moshe was talking to?” Louise asked.

    “Yes.” Mrs. Noah told her. “He was telling Moshe how people could get closer to Him. He explained that there are different kinds of offerings. Some are like gifts. Some are to pay for sin,” she said.

    “Sin?” Louise asked. “What is sin?”

    “Hmmm. Well, many, many years ago The GOD – His name is Abba Yah – made the very first man and woman. He gave them all the instructions so they would always follow the right road and have a good life,” she told her.

    “Oh, I know, that was Adam and Eve!”  Max said. [Gen 2:18-24]

    “Havah,” Hannah snapped, “her real name was Havah.”

    Max glared back at her. “They didn’t listen to YHWH’s instructions. They listened to a bad serpent that wanted them to miss out on the good stuff – he wanted them to follow him,” Miss B said. [Gen 3:1– ]

    Hannah got another cookie. “And that started it! Once they listened to the serpent, their children followed the serpent, too.”  

    “Before they did that, didn’t Yah walk and talk with them?” Max asked. [Gen 3:8-]

    Mrs. Noah pulled out a book with funny letters on it. “Yes. But when they disobeyed Him, it changed their HEARTS. It hurt their friendship with YHWH. An evil seed was put into them. So, He planned a way to fix their hearts so He could be friends with them and their children again.”

    “But,” Louise insisted, “I still don’t know what SIN IS.” [I John 3:4]

    “Hmmm. Well, let’s go back to the Hebrew letters again. The Torah is the book we’ re reading. The pictures in the Hebrew letters for the word TORAH tell us, the Torah is an ARROW pointing – or guiding and directing us.” Mrs. Noah told her. “And what is sin? Alright. The Hebrew letters show
    that to sin means to ‘miss the mark’. ”

    “What’s the ‘mark’ that people aren’t supposed to miss?” Louise asked.

    “I think I know that!” Max was excited. “If Torah is like an arrow guiding or pointing, the Torah must have a place or a ‘mark’ to shoot for.”

    “Sooo, if we miss doing what the Torah teaches, then we have missedTHE MARK,” Hannah added.

    Max scowled at Hannah. “I knew that.”

    “Very good, Max,” Mrs. Noah told him.

    Hannah couldn’t believe Max actually knew that. “Little twirp,” she muttered so softly that Mrs. Noah couldn’t hear it. Then she added, “Since Adam and Havah listened to the snake and did what it said, they learned to follow ITS ways. If we study Torah and the words He gaveto Moshe, then we will get to know Yah – The God of our Fathers, Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’acov – and follow HIM.”

    Mrs. Noah smiled. “That’s right, Hannah.”

    “And, the more we want to know about Him, the more He puts HIS ways into our hearts,Hannah added. She felt better now and smirked at Max. He, in turn, stuck his tongue out at her.

    “How do we miss the mark? Is it like shooting darts?” Max asked.

    “We can think of it like shooting darts,” Mrs. Noah told him. “It would be like the darts are the things we do each day. Everyday we ALL shoot lots and lots of darts toward the ‘mark’ that YHWH has set for us.”

    “Then, the closer we walk to His teachings, the more of our darts will hit that ‘mark’?” Hannah asked.

    “And, WE chose them by what we do and even what we think about,” Mrs. Noah added.

    “Like,” Max wondered, “what would be a GOOD dart to shoot?”

    “I know a good one!” Hannah said quickly. “Helping someone who is sick.”

    “And, reading a story to them,”Moogy added.

    “How about making your bed and helping your mother?” Miss B added.

    “Telling the truth; giving food to the poor; cleaning up the kitchen …” Hannah said as she began listing all the things to show how to follow Torah.

    “So, then, this sin stuff – when we miss the mark – it’s doing bad things that we have to do an off-ring for?” Max asked.

    “Yes. And, that would include lying and stealing,” Hannah told him.

    “Or, hurting someone, or leaving them in a strange place so they are scared,” Moogy said, as he looked at Cecil poking out of his mouse house.

    “Making golden calves to worship and bowing down to them would miss the mark, too,” Miss B added. [Ex 32]

    “Any time we break any of the Commandments YHWH Elohim gave to Moshe, we are ‘missing the mark,’” Mrs. Noah reminded them.

    Louise thought for a minute. “When those people in Israel took away the homes, businesses, schools – everything, from the Jewish families in Gush
    Katif – that was bad! They missed the mark,”
    she said sadly. “Will they have to do a sin off-ring?”

    “Yes. Sin has a price tag that everyone has to pay. But, there is a lot more to learn about the offerings, including the sin offering,” she told the worried little bear.

    “We pay for sin?” Louise asked. “Is it expensive? Why would we want to buy sin?”

    Suddenly, Mrs. Noah heard something funny. 

    Hannah smelled something weird.

    Then, everyone SAW smoke, as it poured into the room! “Where’s Max?” they all shouted together!

    Dec. 25th 2011

    This has been an interesting day.  I sent out my Hanukkah story, a chapter from my book, “The Little Chicken That Could”, that includes some history of Israel.  It is amazing how Israel — ALL of the Hebrew family — kept bringing pagan traditions into the worship of Yahuwah!  Even though we have been admonished, over and over, NOT TO MIX, but to “come out of her my people!”  I pray you are warm, safe and blessed with the desire to know and serve the Almighty God of Israel! 

    Vayikra 2011-Levit 1:1-5:26

    As I watch the devastation in Japan, I can’t help but say, “Thank you Father!  There — but for YOUR mercy — go we!”  I have a hard time comprehending the pain and fear that is ruling in that land right now.
    Many have died — many more have to deal with the results of not knowing HIM — not keeping His commandments.

    I hope you read our story and find the answer to Louise’s question — “just what IS sin?”  Think you know?  Check it out.

    I pray blessings of Truth, and joy fill you and that His wings of love will protect you in these difficult days!  Thy will be done …

    Shabbat Shalom!  Mrs. Noah and the gang.

    Week 23 Mrs. Noah Torah Times Family Torah Study

    P’kudei Exodus 38:21-40:38

    Thank all of you for your concerns for Libby, our little dachshund.  I have been giving her good nutrition to support her liver and kidneys, which I understand can shut down after antifreeze poisoning.   She is doing really well, almost her normal self.  My grandkids are sure happy!

    This weeks story takes Hannah and Max to the camps where they are preparing the materials for building the Tabernacle.  And, that Cecil?  Well, he …  oh, you can read the story!

    For those of you who got the TLC game, thank you in advance for your input.  I need that as we finish the final edit.  Hopefully, it will be available to purchase soon.

    Don’t forget, Passover is coming up, so look at our “Mrs. Noah’s Secret Seder” to help your children understand what a seder is and help you with your choices in preparing.

    Blessings, Mrs. Noah.

    P.S.  I just finished the final story for the 3 year cycle (that is stories going from Gen to Deut in 3 years).  At the end, I invite all of my readers to look at what I am doing NEXT.  IF you would like that story, let me know, I think it is an exciting conclusion — or is it an exciting new BEGINNING?.

  • True Torah Tales: week 47

    Date: 2010.08.25 | Category: Mrs Noah's blog, True Torah Tales | Response: 0

    47 Deut _11-26–16-17.pdf

    Hannah has learned a lot, watching how YHWH looks at His people.

    He LOVES our hearts! They are like the Holy of Holies – where He put His Laws. That is awesome news for flawed people – like me!

    As Isra’el prepares to enter the Promised Land – will they DO all that YHWH has instructed they do? Will Moshe’s words be forgotten? Yes, they were – and are – forgotten by so many. Remember the saying: “Please be patient, GOD isn’t finished with me yet?” Well, I want to remind you, everything is a test, and our GOD is not finished with us yet!

    So, the struggle to be happy – midst all we are seeing and trials we are dealing with – is still my focus.

    Here are some “smiles” sent this week: Turn your frown, upside down!

    Q. Who is the funniest man in the Bible?
    A. Samson, because he really brought down the house.

    Q. Why couldn’t Cain please YHWH with his offering?
    A. Because he just wasn’t “Abel”.

    Mary learned that YHWH said in His word that every hair on our head is numbered. So, while brushing her baby brothers hair, on a dry windy day, she amazed to see his hair flying up into the air! “Mommie” she cried. “There’s an angel counting the hair on Billy’s head!” _____________________________________________________________________________________ We will be traveling this week — would appreciate your prayers for safety, good health and wisdom!

    Shabbat Shalom!
    Mrs. Noah and the gang.

Mrs. Noah, we just got back from Sukkot where Andrew enjoyed making his puppet with you and Hannah, and learning words in Hebrew! Have wonderful time at Hannukah in Florida! We will miss you!

"Your stories truly are a blessing and we are so thankful for all the work you put into your materials. Can't wait to hear more songs. I just loved the CD you made!"

"We just read 'In the Beginning' with our family and we are so happy to find material with YHWH in it. I wish you could have seen the look on my 7 ½ year old daughter’s face when she read it, she was so excited to read (the name) YHWH, unlike other material."
