Shabbat Shalom and Happy Spring!
The gardens are alive and blooming! We’ve had some rain here and are praying for more, and the garden has come alive. It is absolutely beautiful and for all of you in the region I encourage you to come and visit! But just in case you can’t, I have some pictures and a video for you to enjoy (you may notice my particular obsession with the roses!). Thank God for new life, and have a blessed and peaceful weekend!
Shabbat Shalom, All!
This is our first fruits weekend for the month of Nissan which is linked with the tribe of Judah. I’ve put together a video of footage from all seasons from Judah in the garden. The month of Nissan/Judah is the beginning of Spring, and just as Judah goes first, you can see the first fruits of the new growth sprouting up in the garden! God’s design is just incredible – I love seeing how He linked the first month of the Hebrew calendar with the first signs of new life in creation. It is the month where the hope we have carried through the winter season to “spring up” in such a way that we can see the beginnings of the promise we have hoped and warred for! It is the month to praise and see the fruits of your labor coming forth!
Please enjoy this video and let it stir up a new song of praise and thanksgiving as you begin to see the work that He has been doing under the surface burst forth in a new way.
Be sure and tune in this Sunday for our First Fruits celebration service and hear Robert Heidler teach on the month of Nissan!

The Garden is beginning to awaken as we move into spring, with beautiful new growth and the sounds of life as you walk through it. It is absolutely invigorating to walk through, and you can really see what God is doing in us, illustrated through the shifting season in the Garden. I was like a little kid again, running around taking pictures and video of everything I saw. It brings me such joy and hope to see such a picture of God’s perfect design, knowing that if He put so much thought, love, and beauty into nature, how much more does He put into us? It’s breathtaking.
Please enjoy this 10 minute walk through the garden, and the pictures as well!
