The Simplicity of Good Advice
There's something about Morgan Freeman I really appreciate. From his old days on children's TV was my introduction to his kindness with humanity.
From one 'young' at heart, to another 'young' at heart.
Thank You, Mr Freeman !!!

G-d Sends Opportunities
And in that way, He answers our prayers. What wonderful, timely advice. Thank you for the reminder, Aish!

G-d works in mysterious ways and we don't always recognize what is initially happening; if we understood what G-d does and why, we would be G-d. HE always has our best interests in mind. Sometimes, it takes a bit longer to understand what is happening and to improve our behavior and personal growth.

Sometimes the answer is "not now"
HE always hears, but sometimes the answer is "wait." My mother wanted her family to be whole. She passed 4 years ago; my brother could not come. After 35 years of alcoholism, drugs, and assorted other problems, he got clean...and came home. Home to me, in the family house. He also brought his son (another miracle, another time), three grandkids....and no money. But if HaShem brings you to it, HE will bring you through it. The son just landed his job, the kids are ready for school, and brother is looking. Things have been miraculously provided, and more are coming. Praise the Eternal for prayers answered...even after we are gone.
