have confidence

I asked for strength - and God gave me difficulties to make me strong I asked for wisdom - and God gave me problems to teach me solve I asked for prosperity - and God gave me brain and brawn to work I asked for courage - and God gave me dangers to overcome I asked for love - and God gave me people ... in order to help I asked for favors - and God gave me opportunities I received nothing I asked, I received everything I needed! This is what we can expect from our great Shepherd Hashem. So do not think too far ahead, Hashem does on his time in the circumstances the best for ourselves and for others.

The only words I could say right now are "Thank You" Lori.

Lori, your words, your wisdom, your beautiful way of communicating are so inspiring. I love starting my day with you. I don't want this "series" to end. Thank you Lori and thank you Hashem for bringing her to me.

mitzvah

you know, whatever mitzvah is achieved, it is only 50% of a good deed, the other 50% belongs to the recipient, just for being there! - so, in from my concept, one needs to do at least two mitzvahs to make a whole! childish, maybe but to be a donor, of whatever, is wholly satisfying.

TRUE!

Que de vérités ! tout ce dont nous disposons, nous recevons ainsi que les actes que nous sommes capables de faire ne sont pas le fruit du hasard. Dire Merci à D., ainsi qu'aux gens qui nous "donnent". Car celles et ceux que nous rencontrons, qui nous aiment, que nous aimons est le "fruit" de la "loi de causes à effets". Thank you for remind 'Human' to say: Thank You. That's a shotr word...but very important.

THANK YOU LORI!

Thank you for these beautiful and humble words! I have a habit of saying thank you to Hashem for so many things - driving safely when I leave home, may my wife and children do the same, thank you for the food that we eat daily and many more. I say them silently but know that they reach their destination. Maybe not all of them are granted - that is up to G-d, but I do feel strongly connected to Hashem by doing these things. I do not believe that we, as Jews, need to make a loud spectacle of our thanks - G-d has excellent hearing!! - so even if we say our thanks silently - any where that we are - in the car, at the shops etc. etc., they are heard. Shalom to you and all.

Say it out loud

Jonathan, it's possible to avoid the spectacle and still say the thanks out loud. At least loud enough for us to hear it, not anyone else. Try it and feel the pleasure!

HaShem's flower

Thank you Lori! You were HaShem's flower - with a card bearing His love to me today, when I much needed it. Todah HaShem!
