Until My Last Breath

The Shema Yisrael.

Hear O’ Israel. The L-rd our G-d. The L-rd is one.


The most sacred and fundamental of prayers in Judaism. 


Declaring our monotheistic belief and faith in the One Above who has created and sustains us daily. 


These are words we call out from the depths of our heart and soul–in joy, in suffering, in life, and ultimately as we leave this world.


No one can take this from us. 


Only G-d decrees who shall live and who shall die…who shall be exalted and who shall be made low. 

Hear O’ Israel.
The L-rd our G-d.
The L-rd is one. 

Everything is life is given true perspective by this.


People may rise against us and situations may look dire.


But in the realm of G-d, these are all fleeting like the dust that blows in the wind. 


So too shall G-d remove our troubles and bring us comfort. 


It is a test; it is all a test–remember, Hear O’ Israel–and pass it with flying colors. 😉
