Todah !! Felt the need to thank you for the clarification! Have read this story many times -have not always realized all it contains -how important we word our prayers. I have two children and wondered why have issues and really happy to know wording my prayers to Hashem must be worded carefully! My relationship with Hashem is important because want to do his will. Ironically named my only son Samuel as hoped he would love and worship Hashem. Much to think on -thank you -much to ponder. Reply

Thank you Thank you for this moving lecture.
It was so relevant to me at this time of year.
I, like Chana, am childless for more years than I care to count. Medically there is no definitive answer, but Hashem has the final answer.
And the meaning of perception is partially relevant to me at this moment of time, when I have decided to find new meaning and purpose in my life; to abandon all the 'chattels' of the past 40 plus years and go into the unknown and start afresh with new goals.
It kept getting more poignant, discussing her prayers and their meanings.

Thank you so much Reply

inspiring Rosh Hashanah message I was seeking an inspirational Rosh Hashanah message to go into the chag and make it the most meaningful experience - I found it in this tape. Your words are especially poignant because I am in aveluit for my mom z"l and I have struggled to deal with her 18 years of alzheimer and ultimately could say "baruch dayan emet" also. Your words provided that additional chizuk and nechama. Shana tova and may this year be one of good health, and avodas hashem for you and your family. Reply

Divine Whispers I loved this audio and downloaded it. I like especially the ending, how she sums it up by telling the story of her child making her a card that said, "I love You" spelled wrong and with miss-matched colors--but how much it meant to her. I am a convert and my Hebrew is getting better all the time, but I still worry at times my prayers are not good enough if I miss-pronounce a word here and there. But I though to myself, I am like the child, and G-d will hear my miss-pronounced Hebrew and still be happy that I am praying with all my heart and soul and telling Him I love Him by doing so. Thank you. Reply
