Ivdu Es Hashem B'simcha- being happy with on's lot

I try to realize that whatever G-D does is for the best. With every cloud there is a silver lining. Thank you

On the road

My mitzvah is also to pray for disabled vehicles on the road. I am not sure that it is safe to stop and help someone, so I always ask God to send help to that person. If the vehicle looks old, I pray that God will send the funds to help that person get their car repaired or that He provide a way for a new vehicle. I live near a prison facility and I see the white prison busses carrying people to prison. I ask that the prisoners come to know the Almighty and that He will give them peace.

My Mitzvah:)

Mrs.Palatnik, What i'de like to be known for is baking or cooking something for a friend or neighbor.I did do it once, but in secret!I baked 2 loaves of bread and I gave them to my nieghbors. I put one loaf on my neighbor's grill out on their porch, and for my other nieghbor I put it on his counter because he wasn't home.I had alot of fun with that and i'm doing it with my sister tommarow as well! Well thank you for your Ideas and please reply to my comment because i want to know what you think about it!!!! Love, Olivia Age:13

MY MITZVA :-)

DEAR LORI, EVERYTIME I LISTEN TO YOUR VIDEOS, I AM FILLED WITH EMOTION AND TEARS. YOUR WORDS HELP ME GET CLOSER TO MY CREATOR, AND I AM GREATFUL TO YOU! MY MITZVA IS LIGHTING THE SHABBAT CANDLES. I THINK IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN. MY PARENTS ARE NOT RELIGIOUS, AND I AM ON THE PATH TO DO TESHUVA. I REMEMBER MY MOTHER PASSED AWAY WHEN I WAS 10, BUT I REMEMBER HER LIGHTING THE SHABBAT CANDLES WITH GREAT LOVE. AND AFTER SHE PASSED AWAY I ALSO WANTED TO LIGHT MY SHABBAT CANDLES WITH THE SAME LOVE. I GUESS SHE PASSED ON THE MITZVA TO ME. I WOULD LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MY MITZVA. PLEASE HELP!!! YARDENA

A smile can make someone's day

I felt in my heart one day many years ago that my smile is a special gift from the Almighty and many people have told me about the difference my smile - one specific smile on a certain day -made to them. The difference between giving up and hanging in there. A smile changing the direction of their whole lives. I keep underestimating this mitzvah, thank you for reminding me that it is a special gift that I should - and have to privilege - to invest in.
