passover seder 2011

Apr 26, 2011

Last night’s Passover Seder was wonderful! We joined with two of our favorite families to celebrate the redemption of the children of Israel and each of our own personal redemptions through our Savior, Jesus Christ. I love the prayers, the singing, the togetherness in worship that occurs during a Seder. I treasure the legacy we are giving our children. I love the Dayenu, which is a section of the Seder where we ponder and recite all that God has given us. Dayenu means “it would have been enough” and as we think about each blessing God has given us, we all shout “Dayenu!”. Think about that. Think about the blessings in your life that would have been enough, but how God has given you so much more than those blessings. I love seeing people’s faces as they eat the maror or bitter herbs. I love the joy of the hillel sandwich after the bitterness of the maror. I love drinking fruit of the vine. I love springtime with Passover and Easter together. I love sharing the magic of Passover with other families and I hope they leave with a renewed gratitude for their Savior and an increased knowledge of His great love for each one of us.

The table before everyone arrived.



I should have taken a picture of the table at the end…it is amazing how much mess is created during the meal!

Here are the children after they played night games for awhile.


Pretty cute kids, eh?
