Counting the days between Pesach and Pentecos (Feast of Weeks, Shavuot) isn’t dull or something mathematical. Counting means also, that we look forward to what is to come. Peach day in and of itself is a walk with the Lord. And the 49 days between and Feast of Weeks are the transition of the horizontal movement of deliverance from the old Egypt, towards the vertical lift off heavenward.
Our souls are focusing on our heavenly Father who wants us to grow in realizing how valuable we are, how we can be strong and how we are able to encourage other people around us.
You count and celebrate a wonderful Feast of Weeks!
