Elul – Day 5

Posted by on Aug 16, 2018 | 0 comments

DEVELOPING SENSITIVITY When the Rebbe Yosef Yitzchak was a child, he was walking in a garden one day and he ripped off a leaf and began rubbing it with his finger. His father rebuked him, “What right do you have to rip a leaf from a tree and mistreat it for no purpose at all?” When the Rebbe grew up he said that this incident had a deep impact on his life. It taught him to be sensitive to everything. If a person is sensitive to a leaf on a tree, he will, without a doubt, be sensitive to all life forms—most of all to his fellow human beings. This is the essence of tzedakah...

Elul…..and healing begins

This has been a very hard week for me … and now I realize why. Elul begins the tearing away of the veil that covers our true self. The veils that have surrounded me this past year are being torn away, walls torn down and tears shed. This next 40 days are not only heart wrenching, but heart healing. It is customary to read Psalm 27 daily during the sixth biblical month of Elul. This Psalm is one of crying out from the depths of despair to the Only One that knows all and has it all under his control Below is Psalm 27…. read it slowly, let it sink in and let it carry you away. Let...

Time to focus…

Events of the past couple of years have seemed to follow me like a black cloud…and with the end of the year fast approaching, those black clouds burst into torrents of rain every once in awhile. But…. while my heart is heavy with the date of September 24th looming like a sledgehammer ready to fall, that is NOT what my ‘bluebird gone’ would want. He would chide me, I’m sure, for sinking into a pity party and would remind me to lift up my face to the heavens and remember just WHO he is hanging out with! Jason would remind me of the good times, the loving times,...

Running into stumbling blocks?

Running into stumbling  blocks?

It seems that those always come in three‘s don’t they? Wonder why that is. Maybe we just start ‘noticing’ those stumbling blocks when one, then two hit you. Then by number three you’re like WHAT? What’s going on?? After three maybe one just starts over because one can only handle a few things at a time. So it seems that we are again hitting some stumbling blocks…or maybe I should just call them brick walls? Not sure. Sunday night my little sister spent the night with me sitting in an ER room for my husband. This has been the third time we’ve...

Father’s Day 2018

Posted by on Jun 17, 2018 | 0 comments

Father’s Day …. this one comes with bittersweet emotions, filled with sunshine and tears. The warmness of the early rays of the faithful sun peeking through a few feathery soft clouds on my cheek stir up memories of happy days with my own father in long-past days of childhood. And then just as immediately a sneaky teardrop escapes the unending well of more to come as thoughts rest on my youngest son not being here to celebrate his own special day with his two young girls. If I don’t check it quickly, the damn will break as my imagination overwhelms me ‘seeing’...
