If G-d Is With Me

I love this photo and caption that I saw on Facebook. 


Basically it translates from Hebrew as:

“If G-d is with me
Who can stand against me.”


And it’s a picture of someone walking through the split sea like in the exodus from Egypt. 


G-d can truly make miracles. 


What G-d decrees no man can stand against it. 


We need to merit G-d’s standing with us. 


You have to do right, speak right, and have the right intentions. 


Only G-d can judge whether we are there!


But how amazing things can be for us if we look to the Heavens and merit G-d being with us.


Then no man can stand against us! 😉

Back On The Hiking Trail

US

Such beautiful weather today–still February, but Spring has sprung!


We went hiking and I am so grateful to G-d after the surgeries of the last couple of years that I can once again start to enjoy Sugarloaf Mountain together with “my sugar.”


Thank you so much Hashem!


On the hike, one brief thing we talked about was how to email (and speak) nicely to other people.


My wife told me something really smart she heard from a colleague at work:


“WHEN you are having strong feelings and want to communicate them to someone…


Sit down at the table.


Pull your chair in.


Write down what you want to say.


THEN…


Imagine the other person is sitting right across from you.


Turn the paper towards them.


Pretend that they are reading from it in front of you.


NOW…


Decide whether you still want to send it that way.”


So much stupid stuff we say and email could be avoided if we just did this little mental exercise in our heads and in our hearts. 😉
