Creating a Simple Mezuzah :: writing on the doorposts

I found it! It survived two years in a box and over fifteen hundred travel miles... the smallest of things can mean so much to one's heart. You see home, isn't home until we hang up our version of the {Mezuzah}. Mezuzah means 'door posts' in Hebrew, and it often contains the portion of Scripture that is referred to as the Shema. See Deuteronomy 6: 4-9 and 11: 13-21.

Our family chose to type up the Scripture referenced above and add the Ten Commandments. Beginning with "I am the LORD your God... " as number one. Then we printed our door post reminder out on card stock and framed it for our wall - near the door. You can also see the Mezuzah my husband purchased when he went to Israel. A trip that changed his life on so many levels...

We are going to hang both, in respect and honor for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Another reminder of the price Yeshua {Jesus} paid for Redemption. Knowing that what we think and do is so reflective in our relationship with Him.

Simply the Word - written for our going out and our coming in.
