Haven at Home Happenings...

Another week has breezed by...

It was a joy this week to study the Passover(s)...
The Old Testament Exodus
and Jesus Christ's, the Lamb of God's, crucifixion.
It was a blessing to dig into a deeper understanding
of God's Word and what He has done for us.

Reading the Passover stories and doing an activity

Learning a traditional Passover song: Dayenu

A video slideshow that my beloved and I put together
of Ally and I singing "Dayenu" on guitar

{You can stop the blog's background music in the right sidebar}
(You'll hear Suzie sing along a little, too... lol)

A simple Passover meal...

Turnip (bitter herbs), roasted lamb, and unleavened bread

Enjoying it together...

while listening to an audio program of
the four Gospel accounts of Jesus Christ's crucifixion

It was a blessing reflecting on what Jesus Christ
has done for us, through HIS shed blood.
He was the Ultimate Sacrifice.
Praise God for HIS finished work!

Miscellaneous events
throughout our home this week...

Helping with housework

Creative cutting

Apple peeling

Our peanut butter loving poochie

We were blessed with beautiful weather this week
and the children enjoyed playing outdoors,
as well as working...

Picking up after our poochie


Between our many errands
and picking up Ally every day from work,
we managed to spend much time vanschooling...

Coloring Bible stories

Contemplating workbook pages

Reading Mom's new Duggar book (lol)

It was a good week.

May we be reflecting on what Jesus Christ did for mankind.
How He left the throne of Glory in Heaven,
humbled Himself to become the form of man,
rejected by His creation,
mocked, beaten, bruised, bled...
separated from God the Father
to purge us from our sins...
dying a cruel death on the cross of Calvary,
the Ultimate sacrifice, the Lamb of God...
rising from the grave,
victory of death!
That we may call on HIM, believe on HIM,
trust in HIM
and have that victory, too!
Freedom from sin.
Freedom from eternal death in Hell.

Praise HIM for the risen Lamb!

"But God commendeth his love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
~ Romans 5:8

"For I delivered unto you first of all
that which I also received,
how that Christ died for our sins
according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried,
and that he rose again the third day
according to the scriptures:"
~ 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

"Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name
under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved."
~ Acts 4:12

Your creativity in "homeschooling" is inspiring. Thanks for sharing about what you did. Looks like it was fun, educational, and convicting!
