Your Journey Matters

Everything you do in life matters….even the mundane. Maybe, the mundane is even more important!  Here is the last daily word of Rabbi Jacobson, an orthodox Rabbi that truly touched my heart this morning. Perhaps we could learn more about how to live life in a godly way from those who have kept the oracles of the great One far longer than we have known about them. EVERYTHING YOU DO MATTERS Once upon a time, the Baal Shem Tov sent a group of his students on an important mission to help a needy couple in another town.  When they returned, he was not so interested in hearing about their...

A Feast of “JOY”

Posted by on Oct 6, 2017 | 0 comments

Today is the first day of SUKKOT ~ the Feast of Tabernacles ~ A Feast of Joy. This is a hard one this year. Our family loves Sukkot – and has embraced the Festivals of the LORD as commanded in the Bible. If you’re asking what this is all about and why we (non-Jews) celebrate it, let me please share a bit of the why. About 30 years ago, I started on a quest to find the ‘truth’. Back then, didn’t even know what I was searching for … just needed some answers because I was turning 30 and wanted to know ‘is this all there is’? Searching for answers...

Mistakes Will Be Made

This is from my friend Skip Moen, “Today’s Word” sent out daily. With all the division amongst the body today, the ‘need’ for recognition and titles and what have you – this word for the day simply reminded me of my son, Jason. Jason was never one to ask for recognition, never one that grandstanded, never one that needed the spotlight. He was one of those souls that only spoke when the time was right, helped without being asked and never needed a thank you. Well, almost … he wasn’t perfect, but he tried really hard.

First Day….new dawn

Today is the first day of the week … the day after my son, Jason was laid to rest. It is still surreal. I find myself asking – am I still here? I hear people talking in the background, my mother is keeping the two littlest granddaughters busy ….. making sukkah decorations, chattering nonstop…my brother is sitting across from me on his computer and my father is recuperating from eating too much sugary food yesterday.  My husband? He’s off trying to fix something – keeping busy. I tried. Went out to water the garden….pull some weeds, clip some...

Today is day 3 of my son, Jason, passing out of this life …. the pain is unbearable – but it helps me to put words on paper – I pray that this does not offend anyone by doing so. It is simply my outlet for grief … This is the Hebrew month of Tishrei – day 6. Jason celebrated the Feast Days of the Lord and was a very deeply spiritual person – not like your everyday church going person – but a very special deep, soul. An inquiring, sensitive, probing soul. We were going thru the days together as we approach the Feast day of Sukkot – or some call it...
