Very logical!

If you give me a Ferrari, I'll memorize all 613 commandments. :D

how do you get rid of junk?

Thank you, you said it. I also remember lots of junk but B"H after listening to 48-ways some years ago, I became much more selective in absorbing info. Now I am looking for ways of getting rid of junk that already exists.

Thank you Lori!

I definitely needed to hear that right now. I have so much to study and a load of tests coming up and I was starting to get discouraged and overwhelmed. Thanks for the encouragement!

Good thoughts, not trashy thoughts

She's right, folks. For over 20 years I've been reciting the same 5 basic intercessory prayers for about 400 people. The prayers are still basically the same, for healing from diseases, or losses through death, or for many family problems, relationships, pregnancies and even my country's healing. The prayers are nearly the same as they were 20 years ago, but aside from immediate family, there are few names now that were there back then. Many of the situations for which I prayed did not turn out the way I wished, but the fact is that I attempted to intercede with our G-d on behalf of OTHERS! What a sense of peace, just to have all those people's names in my mind to be able to pray for them at a moment's notice. Once again, Lori is so right - to be able to keep trashy thoughts out of my mind by putting worthwhile thoughts INTO my mind.
