the honey of this holiday
Thank you for a lovely loving piece. I love this time of year because for me it is about Ruth, my namesake who gleaned in the fields as it was a beautiful Jewish custon to allow strangers, those in need, to harvest from the corners in this way. Ruth's story is about friendship and love and it is beautiful. I think it is no accident the lineage of the Messiah is given in The Book of Ruth. If you sow enough seeds and water them, they will sprout and so it is with friendship, love, and a greater truth that is entirely, about LOVE as in Truth there is Ruth.

harvesting and consuming
Since Sukkot is in the fall, for those who have summer jobs, it goes hand-in-hand what we earn, and indeed we worked in order to earn it. It's just a matter of the consumption thereafter that must be used wisely. Indeed, working hard is earnest after we have made an effort in order to receive means for harvesting. Same thing goes for retirement money. The earlier one starts a retirement fund, the more he/she will have by the time they decide to retire. Harvesting is indeed bliss, but one must be sure that he/she has worked hard and smart enough for it to have enough of consuming what one has made.
