Building A Booth

'On exactly the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the crops of the land, you shall celebrate the feast of the LORD for seven days, with a rest on the first day and a rest on the eighth day. 'Now on the first day you shall take for yourselves the foliage of beautiful trees, palm branches and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days. You shall thus celebrate it as a feast to the LORD for seven days in the year. It shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 'You shall live in booths for seven days; all the native-born in Israel shall live in booths, so that your generations may know that I had the sons of Israel live in booths when I brought them out from the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.' "Leviticus 23: 39-43

Our next Biblical Feast to celebrate is Sukkoth or Feast of Tabernacles/Booths.

After the somber celebration of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, Sukkoth was highly anticipated.

Everyone was involved in the construction. We still have some decorating to do but we're off to a good start.

We only used material that we already had and we built it without using any nails thanks to Papa and his handy ball-o-twine!

The Captain hung up white lights today. It's nice and cozy. The kiddos have been eating most of their meals out there too.
