If you don’t believe that God exists in our everyday experiences, you would be wrong. Right before Christmas, I purchased an ice cream churn attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer to make homemade Keto ice cream. I thought about making it all this past week and bought the ingredients. Last night I used it for the first time, and the ice cream was delicious.
This morning, I decided to dig a little deeper into Pentecost, or as they call it, Shavuot. Shavuot happened 50 days after the Israelites escaped Egypt, and it’s the celebration of receiving the Ten Commandments. As I wrote yesterday, we celebrate Shavuot or Pentecost as the day Jesus sent the Holy Spirit.
And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.” Luke 24:49
I don’t keep up with all things Jewish and only inquire during times of the biblical feasts. This morning I checked a Jewish website to gain further information about what they do the celebrate Shavuot. I was floored and brought to tears when it said they celebrate by eating dairy items, like cheesecake and ice cream! I can’t make this stuff up! Why did I have the desire to make and eat ice cream after dark last night, which was technically the beginning of Shavuot, according to scripture? So today, let’s celebrate our receiving the Holy Spirit, Pentecost, by having ice cream or cheesecake! I’m pretty sure the Holy Spirit recommends it! 😉
