I look at God judging us as a good thing where God's judgement is not.

I always like the "almost live" casts by Mrs. Palatnik because she imparts the push. I have been studying and doing my best to make amends because I fear and love G-d. It is always nice, though, to get another reminder to try harder. Rosh Ha Shana is always more than about the sweetness of apples dipped in honey... the sweetness to be wrapped in the arms of G-d is even better. Thanks Lori, again.

Making it right

Thank you, Lori for your comments on the upcoming Rosh HaShanah. It really spoke to my heart.

Don't Wait Till the Holiday.

Correct your mistakes as you make them. Cause if you don't fix it immediately, the new year will be filled doing the same old things and waiting a year to repair it. Then you already have a light good feeling before the holiday.

making it good

Of course you are right about this time of year, in particular. Maybe in a way, it's the LAST opportunity to clear the decks, because surely, every day of our lives we should be doing this, namely evaluating and going over our responses to each other and finding opportunities to "make good". In that way, we make every day, holy.

making our mistakes right

Since I do usually regret the mistakes I make, thereby fearing G-d, yesterday I found $20 at work that someone may've dropped, spent it on my way home, but was still worried that someone may come around asking for it. So, to attempt to make this kind of mistake right, I donated more than $20 of tzedekah to a Jewish and secular organization to feed the hungry in Israel and elsewhere.

Make it good- a minute at a time

Dear Lori-You speak about making it good.Watching you and your insights every week from two to four minutes shows me that even minutes are precious.We must work at making even minutes good.I am sure the Vilna Gaon z'l will most certainly agree with this and your insights.Shavua Tov
