The man whispered, “G‑d, speak to me,” and a meadowlark sang. But the man did not hear.

So the man yelled, “G‑d, speak to me!” And the thunder rolled across the sky. The man still did not listen.

He looked around and said, “G‑d, let me see You.” And a star shone brightly. But the man did not notice.

He shouted, “G‑d, show me a miracle!” And a life was born. But the man did not know.

The man cried out in despair, “Touch me, G‑d, and let me know You are here!” whereupon G‑d reached down and touched the man. But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.


Don’t reject a blessing because it isn’t packaged as you expect.

“Success is relative to expectations.”

“Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
