Amazingly Beautiful I only hope that my life can be that of a Lamplighter since hearing your Beautiful Message. Reply

one year later ... Your message is still wonderful, and always will be since it is from Torah.

But i just got to thinking about Miriam being disfigured by G-d because she spoke harmfully of Moses. Miriam saved Moses. I don't get the severity of her punishment. When G-d disfigures his chosen children, is He not at the same time disfiguring Himself ?

For right now, it is just a question. Wonder how long it is going to get me a satisfactory answer. When G-d gets harsh He makes me wonder. I've not accepted the Akeda experience. It's been a ton of years. And Sarah died when she heard about the scheme.

Have a Great Shabbos ! Reply

lto light the world truly beautiful!

I think this is the essence. I have been listening carefully this week to many speakers and many rules about how we should do what we do, to properly observe.It gets hard, and it seems almost too hard, when I feel the essence is love.

I listen because I want to be educated in how other Jews do perceive and observe.

But I think the simplicity, the beauty of this truth, is the over arching rainbow.

Beauty IS truth. Reply

beautiful Best imagery of the menorah i ever heard of. i should go out and buy one and place it prominently like i have my mezzuza. Touching the mezzuza reminds me to be cheerful and kindly. Too bad i need the reminders, but that's a whole other story.
The menorah will help me focus on 6 others and Unity. Presumptuously i'll consider myself in the middle, lighting it up for others who may be looking in on me. Humbly i will consider myself one of the 6 looking into the middle. There is a time we lead and a time we follow. they can be simultaneous.

Beautiful as usual Chana. Yasher koach and thanks. Reply
