Passover (Pesach) 2018

This is our 7th year of celebrating the Feast of Passover.  Every Passover we have observed has been different in some way or anther. New insights. New discoveries. New revelations. His Word never gets dull or old.  It always brings the refreshing wind that only the Rucah of Elohim (Spirit of God) can bring. I am humbled and so thankful to be included in the Passover meal of our King. To just sit back and observe as we partake and remember what Messiah is really an honor. How can one not consider honoring this Feast Day commanded by The Creator of the universe? Although, with that said, only His people can. The ones who choose to not know Him are left outside the camp – a sobering thought.

This year was no exception. It was different in so many aspects. Hard to explain in writing. Maybe one day I will…but for now, I’ll share tid-bits of what Yehovah did.

When celebrating any feast of Elohim it is so important that the mishpocha (family) be together. We need each other, don’t we? I invited a sweet sister to our home. We broke bread together and soaked in the presence of YHWH till the night. The children danced. Flags swayed back and forth as the sweet atmosphere of Our King filled the room. Scripture says to taste and see that Yehovah is good. That verse came alive that night. So many nuggets where brought to the table. Flowers where centered that YHWH hand picked. Candles were lit. An array of food was lined up against white table clothes decorated with colorful plates to be served. Name of Yehovah and Yeshua were hand-painted in Paleo Hebrew on our table. The doorpost smeared with the blood of the New Covenant Passover Lamb.  Oh, this is the highlight of Passover that I will never forget!

Here’s the story for that one: As I was preparing for dinner,  I realized that I needed to do something with the barren wall behind our dinning table. The wall had been used for hanging school projects over the years, and was riddled with nail and tack holes. What it needed was a paint/patch job! But that just wasn’t going to happen in the time we had left. So….this mama had to brain storm and quickly. My daughter suggested that we hang some sheets on the wall and drape them across each other for a “tent like” effect. So I pulled a couple of white sheets out of the closet, and hung them across the wall. Creative? I thought so. I stood back and stared at this blank canvas. My artistic mind went nuts. I thought of the scripture commandment for the children of Israel to coat the doorposts of their house with the blood of the lamb sacrifice so that they’d be spared from the Angel of Death. Oh my!!! I found in the garage 2×4’s (the perfect size), nailed the pieces  to form a “doorpost”, and splattered the top and sides with red paint. My son came over and asked me what I was doing so I invited him to help. Little did I know this was going to be more than just a “school project’ but a spiritual lesson he and I would never forget.

I asked him to find me nails to we could hammer the door post on the wall. He found exactly 3. Right?!?! So YAH! My son and I centered the doorpost against the wall so that I would line up with our table. He held it in place while I hammered. The sound that resonated from those nails was chilling. We both stopped and looked at each other. What was is it like for the Messiah to have felt the nails be pounded through his hands also? That sound I will never forget  My son was quiet. Well…this mama cried. It sent a chill down my spine of the re enactment of what happened on the cross years before. I am so unable to write to you exactly what I felt at that moment. All I know is that this is one of the meany reasons why I was to make this art piece. To be reminded of His death, His Resurrection, and His return. Selah.

But that’s not the end of it. When my friend arrived, we greeted her family with joy (it was to be their first Passover celebration). My friend sat at the end of the table, facing our “doorpost” on the wall. I have to admit I wondered why she was so stricken by it. She later told me that for the past 3 days, she couldn’t get the vision of the cross out of her mind. To finally see it confirmed meant so much to her. We made for multiple reasons, and Father knew she would be blessed by it. So many emotions surfaced as we broke bread and began our Passover meal.

Passover this year was also a bitter sweet moment, knowing it will be our last in this house. A new journey is taking place for our family. A new chapter in a book written by the Creator. The pages are being turned ever so quickly and we are excited for what is being written. One page at a time

Stay tuned for the writings.

Shalom,
Mama Bell

Hangin Out in The Studio

As many of you know, my husband was impressed by Our Heavenly Father to start a radio ministry a few years back.  Really? Where? Being a musician at heart, he has always had a drive to do something, anything that is musically inclined. He is a bass player at heart  And after years of band rehearsals, giggin at local events, and church gatherings, he has come to the point in his life where the need to settle down and choose another avenue with music. Now, I don’t mean in stating this that he has chosen to hang up the guitar, sorta speak, he still loves to play, when asked, but being able to do something on a part time scale and at home is worth gold to him.

7 years ago Worship and Word Radio was created. A tiny studio in our garage brings the worship and the word to anyone in the world with an internet connection. Playing music and the Good News of The Kingdom and reaching to the lost sheep of Yis’rael.  Meeting the needs of many who come on the air to a live interview, sharing their story of hope and freedom they have found in Messiah. Reaching millions of people who have other options of listening to the Word and to praise music, but have chosen to pipe in to a little grass root internet radio ministry that speak directly to where they are at. WOW! to be a servant at heart – that’s my husband.

The radio has gone through many changes in the past 7 years, and we have seen the hand of YHWH move in directions like the shifting wind. We just follow along as He leads.

Up to speed to where we are today. WAW Radio now is hosting the Returning to Eden with Dr Dinah Dye and Jeff Morton on Wed at 6pm while still playing music and messages 24/7 through out the week.

Completely donated supported, WAW Radio makes just enough to take care of all the necessary bills it need to run a home studio. Isn’t that like our Creator? We never ask for funds to continue the ministry, yet Abba knows exactly who’s heart to put His radio show on. He leads. We just humbly receive. It is amazing when funds come through “just in the nick of time!”

My husband who is the servant operator he is called, runs this ministry while maintaining a full time job, being a husband and papa to his 5 children, homeschooling his children (especially in the math department!). He has trained our oldest daughter how to engineer and run the live shows, just in case he ges called in to work. She has done a fine job being a young radio engineer!

This past Wed with the recording of Returning back to Eden show, I was impressed to hang out with him in the studio. I normally don’t, being that it is recorded right during our dinner time. But this time i felt a nudge to do so. Having no idea who are guest was going to be, I grabbed a chair and listened on in.  Our guest was Dr Chris Greene and his new book God’s Healing Codes speaking on health, nutrition, and Hebrew lifestyle. What a show! Fabulous!  It was nice to see some familiar faces on screen as we had fellowship and shared the many true health principals from the Word of Elohim.

I hope you will enjoy these photos I took of the gang.

It was a refreshing and enjoyable time with everyone old and new.

Here are a few sites to check out of the many guest during our show!

Feast of Tabernacles 2016

The Feast of Tabernacles in one of the “pilgrimage” festivals listed in Leviticus 23 in the Judaeo-Christian Bible.  Besides ‘Feast of Tabernacles’, the festival goes by a number of other names: Feast of Booths, Sukkot (Hebrew for ‘booths’), Feast of the Nations, and of course The Season of Our Joy!

This festival looks back at the forty year period of time when the Israelites lived in the wilderness of Sinai.  During that time the Hebrew people were isolated from the rest of the world in an almost “millennial” setting.  They could see the Presence of God dwelling in their midst. He covered them daily with His cloud, and at night He warmed them with His fiery presence.  During their 40 year “wilderness experience” their needs were taken care of, neither their shoes nor their clothes wore out, and they were judged righteously in accordance to God’s Torah by Moses and the judges.

The Feast of Tabernacles also looks forward to the 1000 year Messianic Kingdom when Yeshua will be dwelling in, and ruling from Jerusalem.  It will be a time when all the nations learn of the great things that happen when people follow the ways of the God of Israel.  As a consequence, shalom (peace) will spread out from the Great City and will eventually encompass the whole world.

A Wilderness Experience:  God’s people are called to observe all of His festivals – Passover, Pentecost, and of course – the Feast of Tabernacles; but during the fall festival of Sukkot, we are also instructed to dwell in “booths”.  Dwelling in booths – little huts that are nothing more than temporary shelters – reminds us that like Abraham, we are “sojourners” in this world; and so for this 8 day period we are to separate ourselves from that world.  The Feast of Tabernacles is to be our yearly “wilderness experience” where we can commune with God and each other in as much of a “millennial” setting as possible.  In a sense, it’s our opportunity to “go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob . . .” so that He can “teach us His ways” whereby we can better “. . . walk in his paths“.  (Isaiah 2:3)

14633015_1813147062260126_1685603949545545541_n

Our family, including 6 other families just returned from 8 days of Sukkot at a nearby campground. It was an amazing time of fellowship, joy, laughter (boy, did we do plenty of that!), bible study, campfires with kosher marshmallows, bike riding,dancing (and I brought my flags which I danced with) and just plain ole fun!  This is our 5 years of celebrating Feast Of Tabernacles at it is also called, yet only the last three have we spend with an amazing group of people who are choosing to pull away form the normality of life within the church and seek the Father with all our hearts. We are tight-knit group that has a desire to do what Scriptures says. Do we all agree at times, nope, but the common thread of YHVH’s love prevails.

It is good to be back home after sleeping in a temporary dwelling for 8 days with the last two of the days with rain.  But I have to admit, I do miss the technology free environment, gathering with my family and friends, late nights at the campfire, no set schedule, no phone ringing and checking for messages (although when we got home, my inbox was slammed), just simple life living.  I know that this is just a temporary set up for the final production in eternity.  So for now, I’ll deal with the bug bits, leaky tents and burnt bread for the sake of being obedient to the TORAH and my love for the Father and the Messiah.

Till then, here are some of our pictures to enjoy on how we celebrated this commanded Moedim (feast).

Shabbat mid-day study time. We talked about the parables and celebrating His feast by the moon.  So cool to be able to just share how The Father has revealed to us how to celebrate His feast by how we believe we are to. We are all on a journey to do our best while on earth It was so freeing to just be ONE body with no one “leading it” and just discuss.

14633071_1747844128801687_6732399006479073699_n

Blessings for the children. Yup that is ME, I was instructed by my husband to be included!

We finally got our new Armenian Gampr pup, a little girl named Seron,

which in Armenian means beautiful, and that she is.  Shipped all the way from the green pastures of an Armenian farm,to LAX and  her first pit stop in Phelan, California to get acquainted with farm living in the high desert at Snowdale Acres.  Her male friend Havoz is living at Snowdale Acres, the same farm we got our nigerian/nubian cross goats. Which one, by the way, is expecting this summer!.

A truly remarkable dog, and incredibly smart, Armenian Gampr dogs are an exceptional breed with so much to offer a homestead, farm and family. For more informtaion on Armenian Gampr visit http://www.gampr.org/  You will be truly blessed.

We are now in training session with her to get her instincts to drive in the herd and protect our goats, chickens and property. So far so good!  She is also being leashed trained to be in our home and by our side. She has done very well in that part of her training.

 We where able to work with Good Dog Charlie to get an assessment on her,

and she passed with flying colors, although since she is a puppy, her puppyness took over, yet I was impressed, she did as well as she did. Too cute, I might add!

My husband and I are working together

on a few business to share about health and wellness and praying it will supplement for our family.  We are learning A LOT about Network Marketing.

Man, if we would of applied this vital information way back when, well, let’s just say, life would of been way different for us financially,way different.  That’s okay, YHVH (God) knows what He is doing.  Never too later to start up something new, or is that old?

20160223_164251

We are  still actively involved as host to the high desert with Abundant Harvest Organics with our community.

After coordinating a Co-Op Buying Club for 8 years called Bountiful Harvest, Abundant Harvest Organics (AHO) fell right into place  We enjoy supporting local farmers, especially those in CA.  It helps the farmers out and of course our family needs and the local community.. For more information, please visit us and sign up for a local  pickup for the high desert.

health-coach

We are also planning on being a team as Health Coaches and guiding people to an abundant life of optimal health and wholeness.

Let the school bell ring!  Classes are now being  held for my husband and I in becoming certifed health coaches.  There is a lot of information to process and learn as we implement these business alongside the classes we will be taking together to to give our community, friends and family a knowlegde based approach and options to choose from to guide them to better  health.. We will share later on in blog post to come about what those businesses are, how schooling is going and what we are learning..  In the meantime, check out our home page and take a preview peak of what The Healing Throughout Team businesses are about-and more!

And of course  we are still in the thick of parenting our young ones and soon to be adults.

Sometimes it is hard to juggle all that has been entrusted to us as parents, yet the Father has given us a measure of grace, mercy and faith. As older parents (my husband and I both, are 1 year shy of turning 50-did i just type 50?!), and raising a brew of different personalities and ages sure can be challenging when you are an older parent. Not difficult, just challenging. When we fall short, and our patients runs thin, I have to remind myself that, I too, can be impatient also. The Father is so gracious to us, and He teaches so much thru our children, if we would  just listen and allow the joys of parenting to come back after a season of darkness and loss.

There is so much more I would love to share, yet I will save it for another blog post.  That way I have a reason to come back and blog again.   Keeps me on my toes or is that fingers!

Till we meet again,

Baruch (Blessings) and Shalom(Peace) in all you do!

Life Lately: gardening, chicken co-op, and family life

20150730_114301

 

20150820_192256

 

We have been super busy around here at the Healing Throughout Homestead with preparations in gardening, a revamped chicken co-op and a home pen for our Mini Nubian goats from Snowdale Acres  There is no time to just lay around at our homestead, so we make sure to keep busy with daily life duties.

As a mom of four children life here is exciting!  There is always something to do and as my children get older, the extra hands make chores so much easier for this mama. I am always on the ‘go-mode”, but it keeps me trim and  healthy.  Who need a gym,when your hauling hay, feeding all your critters, maintaining a homestead, schooling and just breathin…hogwash, I have my build in gym right here at home.

This month my husband found the time to put together a another chicken coop. Ours has needed an upgrade for a while now. Our previous coop was really large and raking out the straw every week was getting to be a huge chore. We where inspired by this video on how this farmer doesn’t feed his chickens any feed and wanted to try it with our layin ladies;  This is a bit hard to do in the desert, but we are trying on a much smaller scale. Anyway, I really liked his chicken coop. It reminds me of a lifeguard station.

The best part is: it was completely free! We used parts of the old coop, and wood lying around our backyard to make it. Down to the hinges we took off an old gate and nails we found from old boards, this coop is a recycled condo!

We also have seen tremendous growth with our family garden.  It is super exciting to see LIFE come thru the ground. The tomatoes this year, despite the California drought, have been divine. Our melons are looking fabulous from old seed last year coming up and to the new planting I did this year.  I just may have melons thru mid October. Only in a homestead gardening, can this be! Thank you Yahweh!

We also have been busy with being a family and learning about the true meaning of LIFE.  Life is an adventure and we are just passing thru this place called planet earth. As a believer in the Messiah, I know this is not my home. I am “renting” a place here on earth with my “new  home” that awaits me. With the world changing at such a fast rate, we have to be mindful of what this world really can offer us.  Honestly, it can’t.  You may find satisfaction in the little things life has to offer and be content for a season, but in time it will loose its taste and become a bitter taste in your mouth.  Only in Yahweh (Lord) will you find complete satisfaction and contentment knowing that He is all you need.  The bible says O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!”  Psalm 34:8 The flavor the Father can offer thru His son, Yeshua, will never taste bitter, but always sweet.  Life may throw you some hard blows to knock you off your feet, but with Him that journey  will be filled with joy and comfort only He can offer.

Well, back to my motherly duties, I hope you enjoy this post. Love to hear your comments below. If  you are homesteading, whether in an apartment in the city  or a bigger country scale, love to hear from you and how you enjoy it.

Blessing and Shalom,
Mama Bell-The picture below is of my Nonna Rosa in Italy tending to her flock. A natural.
