Wonder Validation...

I have been viewing 'Lori Almost Live' for quite some time. This Shabbat, I chose to begin the formal process of Conversion....Thank You Lori for such a Validating Message. I could relate the 'personal, busy, busy stuff'...that held me back...due to its distracting and meaningless 'drama' in my life...
But the essence of the Video is the more important. B"H

You are right !

I loved all you have said, but also I am happy that you spoke slower, and so for me that I am a Brazilian I could understand everything. Thank you !

so true

(13) Catherine Manna, June 19, 2008 7:57 PM

I believe!

THis is true if we take time for God
he will make time for us.
heres another thought!
If we want peace or ask and pray to God for peace
then we have to pursue peace first.
seems like everythig starts with you with us. we show God we care, then he see's and hears our prayers and our wishes.
So i guess what im tring to say, is
we have to act in harmony with our Prayers, once we make the time to actually do them..
sounds good?
I love you Lori!
How about a show called,
I Love Lori!
Keep in touch

Your beautiful as alwasy!!!

Is there another gift or friend like HaShem in our life, not to me.

We are spiritual beings and our spirit yearns for breakfast with our creator also a spirit a Holy Spirit. In the age of technology where time has become a scarce commodity-- T.V., mobile phones and access to all we all we have ever wished, the limiting factor is time the value of time has become like that of water in a desert in our illusion. The starving spirit in us seeks food in worship and through prayer we surely do connect with HaShem though not technologically. I love the mornings and thanks Him for the night, l love the evenings and thanks Him for the day for all His care, that way l try to have time with God, but it is time snatched from myself in my understanding a sacrifice and for that time l have never failed to get a reward of another beautiful day and night. Thanks for the encouragement to all of us of this kind.

Also: Draw near to G-d and He will draw near to you. Kids on were discussing role models, first non-serious but became more serious when your name came up. (gave this link). Glad to find you.

Golden Words!

Why North Virginia deserves to learn from you more than Houston!
We, in Texas, also need such a fascinating instructor and your profound classes. Please, put us into a waiting list. I'm sure Houston has enough resources to make you feel as comfortable as at home.
The words "take time for G-d and G-d will make time for you!" have to be put into music, written with golden letters, and placed into slogans.
Have a great Summer!

Not necessarily

I love Lori's almost live blogs but sometimes she tends to simplify things and make it seem very black and white. If you take time to pray, you will have the gift from G-d of more time that day. Sometimes that's true. But very often it's not true.

You don't necessarily get a "reward" each time you pray or do a chessed or go to a shiur or any thing that you're supposed to do right away. Very often, you will take time to pray and you'll STILL have a "Murphy's Law" kind of day. It doesn't mean you shouldn't pray. But you shouldn't expect an immediate reward like that!! Then you'll be disappointed and then you won't pray next time.
Just pray for the sake of the meaning it puts in YOUR life and hopefully it will add something to your life whether or not it adds more time...
