A Hanukkah Poem
It was the sixth day of Hanukkah, and all through Beit Sar Shalom, everyone was mingling, the single mothers felt at home.
Spread across the table, were salads, breads and more, enough for every person to come and eat round four.
The Hanukkiah candles were lit to start the evening, and then the staff led the moms in choruses singing;
“Banu Choshech Legaresh” and “Maoz Tzur Yeshuati”, these were the songs that were sung by all, oh so joyfully.
After came the meal to everyone’s delight, and then Hanukkah donuts to top it off just right.
When everyone was satisfied and had eaten their fill, the room came to a hush and many felt a chill;
As testimonies came forth of miracles and amazements of what God had done on their behalf in healings and salvations.
One woman shared how God saved her life from a near death experience; another woman shared how God healed her child from an illness that was serious.
On went the testimonies one after another and then the natural progression was to worship God again together.
No matter what one goes through or what troubles one may face, God is still good, at work in our lives, and is worthy of all praise!
At the close of the evening, each of the women received a gift card to be used to buy clothes for themselves and their children. It was such a beautiful and heartwarming experience to be both with these women, and in the presence of God. The women were touched, and God was glorified. This was a Hanukkah celebration to remember.
God bless you.
