A Few Jewish Thought

Learning the first little bit of Hebrew.
I learned the Shema first.
Sh'ma Yis'ra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.

My husband taught me to say this by using English words that sound like the Hebrew words.
Adonai (add a nine) Eloheinu (Ella hey new) Adonai (add a nine) echad (a hod)

The Talmud teaches, “Jews are the compassionate children of compassionate parents.”
Jews don’t retreat from life, we elevate it.

Of the thousands of religions in human history, only Judaism bases its belief on national revelation ― i.e. God speaking to the entire nation. If God is going to start a religion, it makes sense He'll tell everyone, not just one person. G-d spoke at Mt Sinai to around 2 million people who left Egypt.  It states that there was thunder and the earth shook.  The people could hear G-d's words.

Why we do not believe in born again- the message of the Torah has always been to have faith in God for salvation and not "work your way."


G-d knows everything.  He also knows what he needs us to know now and in the future so when he said everything we need to know he gave us in the Torah and nothing can be added to it or taken away from it ever.  So Jesus saying we need to be born again and that he is the blood sacrifice that we never needed was what made it easy for Jews to see his claim was false.

G-d also said there will have to be 2 witnesses to any claims of G-ds works.  Mary was the only one to hear the angel talk to her, Jesus talk to G-d alone so again easy to not believe.  Which is why Jesus had to go to the lower people, the pagans and the non jews to find followers because anyone who knows G-d's word would never believe the contradictions to the Torah.

When their is a prophet like Jeremiah, G-d said we will know if a prophet is true if his prophecies come true.  So when he states the prophecies and it comes true then everyone is a witness.  So the prophecies would have to take place in their lifetime.  So prophecies like Paul's would not be true because he couldn't prove it by it coming true in his lifetime.

Master Bedroom Make Over

This is our bedroom (before). We changed out the chandelier when we moved in but we love the painted ceiling and the wall color. But now we want some wall molding done in this area.



We picked a pattern to try using 4ft long by 1.5 inch wide wood. It is in the molding area at Home Depot. We cut the wood into 7, 10, and 13 inch pieces.
Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.


In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
Then really months later we got around to painting it. One coat of primer and 3 coats of white paint. Then we realized that w…
