February was Enchanting


My Mama always said, "Good things come to those who wait."

My life is unfolding in just the way I always dreamed ~


From my personal life to my spiritual life ~ to everything else in between ~

Contentment


At Peace in My Life ~ Because of My Sanctuary ~ and All of The Goodness that came to me from the moment I stepped on the sand and let my little doggie off leash ~ We both became truly Free that Glorious Summer Day ~ I weep Tears of Joy now ~ and am so very, very grateful for all of the Blessings God has given me ~

On Board


I took my second class last night and had to introduce myself to a new rabbi.

I told her about my community of Jewish friends and how I have been seriously thinking of converting to Judaism for the past two months.  I ended the introduction by saying I am on board to committing myself to two years of study to make this conversion dream come true.

She lovingly took the Torah out of the arc, describing the beautifully decorated curtain, the torah crown with little silver bells, and silver the hand pointer.

I stood there fascinated ~

And when she unrolled the Torah, describing how it takes one full year to create ~ when she took the hand pointer and found a passage to read ~ when she translated Hebrew for us ~ I got chills.

Another sign ~

"Sunrise, Sunset"



Misted up on the corner of River and Water Streets today, remembering how Mama used to sing "Sunrise, Sunset" to me as a child.

"Fiddler on the Roof" was probably my first introduction to Jewish life, long before I read the "All of A Kind" family books or ever saw "Crossing Delancey."

That memory came to me a flashback nearly 45 years later, and I took it a as sign that Mama is proud of what I am doing.

Misting up all over again writing this right now.




 
Sunrise, sunset,
Sunrise, sunset,
Swiftly fly the years,
One season following another,
Laiden with happiness and tears ~

Tranquility







"The positive vibrations 
of 
unregulated joy, peace, happiness, and tranquility
 is 
freedom."
