I Love the Holy Days!!!

I Love the Holy Days
This is a little synopsis I did a while ago for the Feast of the Tabernacles. I hope it will shed some more light on the importance of the Holy Days. I have highlighted the ways that each part of this Feast pertains to our knowledge of the last days.
"Not being well educated as to the ways of men but only of the heart, I may not tell you what you want to hear from our studies of the Feast of the Tabernacles BUT I have felt for years and years that all life is or should be based on the Holy Days from the Jewish culture (when I read, years ago, that Joseph said that the Holy Days would return and take the place of our holidays, I was amazed, then humbled and teachable and hungry for anything that would help me to learn.
