The ceremony is usually celebrated at home with family or friends and includes three blessings — over wine, spices, and light — as well as the hamavdil, a blessing thanking God for separating the days and making the Shabbat sacred.
We sing through psalms 23 and 128 and have fun with the little girls singing “ This little light of mine!” 💕
So thankful we are children of the most high God and walk in His statutes and Kingdom ways. This tradition has become very special to us and represents an end cap of a set apart time in the week.
“Blessed are you Adonai our God, King of the universe, who separates between Holy and secular, between light and darkness, between Israel and the nations, between the seventh day and the six days of labor. Blessed are you, Adonai, who separates between Holy and secular. Amen!”
The key is that you are setting this special time apart and creating a space of time that you are honoring our Creator in HIS appointed time. We have six other days to do what we want but one day is given as a gift to us to relax and rest in His provision. What a beautiful and loving Abba we serve!
Have a great week friends!
