The Bible says, “The day of the LORD comes as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes.” 1 Thess 5:2,3. Christ affirmed, “If the goodman .had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.” Matthew 24:43. Christians are like the goodman today, not watching, because they don’t know when to watch. Christ warns, “If you don’t watch, I will come to you as a thief.” Revelation 3:3. This article looks at when to watch.

Couples who are inviting mostly Jewish guests should avoid scheduling their wedding on the Sabbath, Friday Evening, and Saturday ceremonies should only be held after sundown. Marrying on holidays like Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur is definitely out of bounds if most of your guests are practicing Jews. Consult a Jewish calendar before you choose your date.

We may hit a few rough days from Tuesday, September 23rd, through the 25th with Mercury changing directions. Yes, its time for another Mercury retrograde, and usually the most difficult days of his retrograde times are when he is changing directions. Mercury will conjunct Mars as he turns around, and that means accidents! Especially automobile accidents. Drive carefully. Verbal arguments could turn physical very easily during this time, so avoid arguments at all costs. I have an article called, “Mercury Retrograde in Libra – Where is the truth?” if you would like to read more.

Marv Owen did not drive in 100 runs like his counterparts, but proved just as tough as Rogell. Despite batting .069 in the World Series, he fought the intimidating Joe Medwick in Game 7. Medwick slid hard into Owen at third precipitating the brawl. Both players remained in the game until Commissioner Landis removed Medwick to protect him from Tiger fans. For the season, Owen hit .317 with eight home runs and 96 RBI.

Played like a French horn, the hollowed shofar sounds vary from plain deep notes, treble trills, moaning sounds, and staccato beats. During rituals, three basic sounds are emitted from the shofar- the tekiah (bass), teruah (treble), and shevarim (three connected short sounds.) The shofar is blown in a sequence noted by a blend of the three sounds.

Rosh Hashanah is the first day of the Hebrew year. It is called Rosh Hashanah since “rosh” means head and “shanah” is year – the “ha” part makes the whole “head (or beginning of) the year” So, when you meet them, it is nice to wish your Jewish friends a happy new year. “Happy New Year” or the Hebrew equivalent “Shana Tova” are appropriate greetings.

The other group that differed in this stance of appointment was outraged, the Shiites. They believed that the torch should have been handed down by blood to someone in Muhammad’s family and today, their heritage can be traced back to Muhammad’s daughter, Fatima. Thus, the schism of sects occurred. The Sunnis believed in capability and the Shiites believed in blood when handing down political power and is still used today in Muslim nations.

Consider a buffet: Large gatherings are difficult to seat properly in a family home. Most people can’t easily set a table for more than a dozen people and just a few families in attendance makes this task even harder. A buffet style leaves guests free to sit where they like and circulate freely. It also requires some extra serving ware that might need to be purchased. Hot plates and food servers are designed for this task and will keep food from going bad or cold. Large serving dishes can be used for the cold offerings.
