New Years Eve Decor

New Years Eve Decor
   Put together a bunch of different black, silver, and gold decorations and created these centerpieces.

I bought the Gold wreath from Lowes and added the black chandelier ornament.  I made the New Year Pennant.   I made the Ring in the New Year banner also from scrapbook paper.

Angry Bird Buckets for Birthday party

Using vinyl decals on dollar store buckets for party decor.

Plastic dollar store buckets the color of the characters, then apply the face to the buckets and filled with snacks

Vinyl decals for $7 plus $6 for buckets.  Now my kids can still use the buckets for legos and toys.
To purchase the vinyl decals

Star of David out of yardsticks

After my husband used screws to attach the yard sticks we rapped lights around it.

Chosen One

Why are Jews called the chosen ones.
G-d offered his covenant to all people on earth but the Hebrew which chose to say yes were then the chosen ones.  We chose G-d after hearing his conditions and plans at Mt Sinai. We chose G-d and to serve only him with no gain for us.
We win no salvation or ticket to heaven (since the world to come is offered to everyone)
We do not lower him to a magic genie to ask for better things in life. (I pray in Thanks and blessings)  G-d knows our heart and doesn't need us to keep asking things of him.
If every person took out the part of their prays that ask G-d for something how long would your prayer be.  Even if it is to ask him for help for someone else.
We chose him with no personal gain. To serve G-d for personal gain or salvation is to serve yourself not G-d.  Which is why we do mitzvot.  I get pleasure knowing that I am pleasing G-d and doing what he ask of me.  I get nothing more from it than that.  A lot of times I heard people who are upset…
