Grief

Grief , sorrow and loss have one way of making us look to God that no one can explain. It's a yearning to see that which is more than us. The One who was before the foundations of the earth were ever put in place. And do we meet with Him. Yes, in different ways He reminds us that yes He understands, yes, He sees our lev weep, but it is in this we know in whom we have put our trust, the One who neither slumbers nor sleeps. He hears your hearts cry, the numbness that settles and the awakening of the soul to Him all over again.
May all be comforted O G-d our Father yet our King, may your will be our will for there is no One who is like you who comforts us who walks in when all have left. Amen.

So inspiring and moving

I have transcribed your message to use as part of a shiur on suffering for the ladies of our shul this coming Shabbos . We should all internalize your message.

if Rachelle Fraenkel can be faithful with open arms, what about us?

I've Rachelle Fraenkel's video over the past week on my radio show. On Friday, i usually end my show w/ 'the starfish story' and a brief commentary.
Today, I ended w/ this video and asking:if Rachelle Fraenkel can be faithful with open arms, what about us?

Rachel's words in such a time of grief will be with us for ever. She has such a beautiful spirit and has moved the spirit of Israel into a new place of unity. May she and the families of the boys and all of Israel have a very blessed New Year. We love you Israel
