Living in the Desert makes me aware of the Miracles that the Almighty One performed for the sake of His People. We had invited a new family to join us and were disappointed to find that they had nor arrived by sunset. (turns out that he was suffering from a sinus attack and also couldn't call us because of lack of coverage.) The lamb we grilled was wonderful, the horseradish reminded us of the bitterness of slavery, and the figs I stewed reminded us the the sweetness of salvation. (The pickled beets were sweet and sour so covered it all)
My beloved and I read from Exodus and recited the Haggadah.
The benefit of the Passover celebration is that it encourages us to clean house, literally and physically. Therefore, we cleared the room that has been serving as storage. WOW! There is a floor. We added an extra layer of plywood to the floor, set up our folding tables and chairs, and we were prepared for eight. But we had a lovely Seder, just the two of us, but we knew the Lord was present as well, so there were THREE.
