This is why we have Shabbos!

This is why we have Shabbos! The Holy Shabbos! Time to disconnect from the hectic outside technological world and reconnect with what's really important. Wanna know what that is? Come to a class!

For many of us we're powerless and cannot control it. Surprisingly that's the greatest gift -- the realization that I simply can't control it and that I need G-d's help. G-d wants your freedom, has the power to give it to you, and will be happy to give it to you once you're willing to allow Him to take the controls. If you have failed whenever you tried to manage, it's time to give Him the control. He's the only one who can manage outcomes. Live on His terms and it will restore your sanity. You just have to want it.
