This Scene Reminds Me Of Another One I Have Seen

In the movie Awakenings, there is a scene where patients who had not moved for decades became mobile. This movie shows us the type of enlightenment that comes from realizing Ha-Shem's true greatness. In the movie Awakenings, you see the happiness that can come out of this enlightenment. Remember that Ha-Shem is always there and that if you take even a small amount of time to open your eyes to Him, you will end up with positive results. Even a short amount of time can be beneficial to a great sense of enlightenment.

I have recently come to the conclusion

ThatHASHEM is always with me . Before this I was to say the least anxious about my 60 years and what would come next in the journey of my life. my children are grown and I live by myself now. Gets lonely you know! Then I found Aish.com and now I find that I have an extended family that cAN MAKE me laugh ,cry, really inspired,and saying SHAMA at the wailing wall .I guess what i am trying to say is :Thank You Rabbi Weinstein for giving me a way to feel connected to a large congregation of Believers that keeps me involved and confident that I matter this is a blessing that when I was told I was disabled that I thought would not be possible. so thanks for being there. The Lords Hand outstreatched all the way to Fresno CA. you are appreciated SHalom May We have a memoriable Passover.Your student P.jenkins

In bad times why can't we see God ?

In difficult times, When God is Hidden from us, it is because He wants us to see and concentrates on others, to take care of each other. The 2 greatest commandments are Love your God with all yourheart and soul and Love your neighboor as yourself. In this 2 commandments is all the Law (Maimonides).

a state of mind and we are able to create, could this be a coincidence? meant, the movie. this is my favorite one. but coincidences are not, causuality is not, it is causal and this brought me a --reminder. as long as we are able to create life will bring better circumstances.

G_d's Heart.

I remind myself to always focus on one simple truth...
My love for G_d should not be based on what He does for me but rather that it should be based on who G_d is!
When I can't see G_d's hand it is then that I must trust His heart.
G_d is always in control of even the details of my humble life. It ain't easy for me sometimes...
We take care of my 81 year old father who has alzheimers, I had surgery last monday and they did a biopsy, my business has been very slow, bills are piling up but.....
I shall trust the LORD G_d of Israel who is always able to deliver me from the lion's den. Had Joseph not been sold into slavery, Egypt and Joseph's family would have suffered terribly during the 7 year famine. The Holy Scriptures are the love sonnet of an Almighty, Holy and Righteous G_d to all human kind. Even to gentiles as I. Was not Ruth a gentile and yet G_d saved her and brought Boaz into her life as a kinsman redeemer. br>May this Passover remind us that G_d is faithful and is our deliverer even today amid troubled times.
