Some thoughts as we've just ended the Yom Kippur fast. It's a beautiful day, this holiest day of the year. Where we come to the peak of our season of repentance and "cleaning house" spiritually and then find our Father and King waiting to embrace us with his presence and beauty. Sun setting over the walls of Jerusalem and I'm walking with my children and husband to the Kotel, the Western Wall and the closest place to Abba's home on the earth, where he placed his Name for all ages. We were also in mourning for the loss of a true hero, Ari Fuld, who was murdered two days before by a terrorist. As we walked along in the sunset, the silent lanes of the Old City surrounding us, the light of the stars felt so close and we suddenly heard 3-4 clear gunshots to our left. My husband and I exchanged knowing glances, but didn't say anything. Just then we walked past two police and their radios suddenly sparked to life, "terrorist attack, killed, neutralized". Again we said nothing, hoping that it was all background noise for our 7 year old daughter, not wanting to ruin the big day with trauma. We reached that special place and my little buddy took his Abba's hand and walked confidently to the men's side among the worshippers. I'm sitting with my daughter, taking it all in, the clear beautiful night, the holiness of the day and that place, the heartfelt prayers ascending, the songs... she leaned over to me and in a whisper said "you know when we were walking along that dark and quiet lane that overlooks the mount of olives and the city of David... I felt soooo close to God." I love this place. And one day we will live here not in fear of being stabbed. Not with the fresh image in our minds of children putting their beloved father in the earth after he was stabbed, fatally wounded and still he ran after his attacker, shot him and saved the other victims, then collapsed and succumbed to his wounds. We won't be hearing gunshots on Yom Kippur. I will be free and safe to take my children to any part of the Judean mountains. But for now, we are here and we're not going anywhere. #yomkippur#arifuld#amisraelchai
We’re only human and we make mistakes, even when we want to do good. Intentions count, but actions are what cause the effect.
May our good intentions produce good actions, may we be able to recognize our mistakes and fix them.
May we be humble to seek forgiveness, and generous to forgive.
May all the messages we are receiving during these high holy days illuminate and open our hearts in order to improve our lives and live in peace with ourselves and others. May we use the tools and instruments that God gives us to transform into better human beings.
I seek forgiveness if I ever hurt anyone, intentionally or not. If I ever hurt your feelings, if you felt like I ignored you or didn't care, if you felt angry or sad by something I said or did, please forgive me.
May we all be written and sealed in the Book of Life for another year of blessings, love, health, peace, wisdom, strength, faith, understanding, positive changes and prosperity.
Wishing you an easy and meaningful fast.
