Cookie making and Air Raid Siren.

As part of our “cozy afternoons-program”, we today made sugar-cookies together. We had lots of fun with it, sticking out some Hanukkah-shapes, and some letter-shapes. Our little girl always wants to write all the different variations of her name with letter-cookies. In the middle of this, we all of a sudden hear the air raid siren going off… In Jerusalem!! This is pretty big! A first for us who were not here Friday! Because of the children, I stay remarkably calm (if I can say so myself), and just say; “Ah, listen to that, it is the siren. So let’s go to the bomb shelter.” Within seconds we are all behind closed doors in our bomb shelter. I thought I heard the sound of an explosion, but decided it must be something else, and certainly did not mention anything to the kids.

We stay inside the bomb shelter for about ten minutes, and then return to our cookie making. I just have to smile of the children who sort of look around as we come upstairs, seemingly surprised and relieved that everything is still the same. And they say; – good thing the rocket didn’t destroy our house, it would have broken the cookies… (By the way, the rocket landed near an arab village not far from here, so I could have heard the explosion.)

Our big boy is very focused on a project he has going with the letter-shapes, and when he is done, he lets us see what he made, and he has written out the words: Am Yisrael Chai! Meaning, – the People of Israel Lives! What a great message to come out of the bomb shelter with!

They are trying to destroy us, to break us, – but they are not going to manage! We are going to stay alive and thriving! Because God has promised us a future and a hope!!
