there is only good

Everyone has their challenges. I don't want your tests and believe me you would not want mine, whether it be the ones I have now or have had in the past.
Try to make every challenge and test as an opportunity for growth.
The one that truly succeeds is the one that realizes all is from G-d and therefore everything is good and for the good.
I do fall like everybody else and I have a yetzer hora that tries to put me down but I pick myself up and keep on truckin'
If I can do it then anybody can.

I can't believe I had to wait til I am 78 years old to find out it is ok not to agree with what HaShem makes happen.... Tzilia Sacharow in Jerusalem thank G-d

The Serenity Prayer

Tzilia's there's Reinhold Niebuhr's famous serenity prayer: G-d, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
When there's evil, we're supposed to protest, but in a situation where HaShem makes things happen and there if nothing we can do to change it, let's pray that Hashem grants us the knowledge to know the difference. We need to be honest and acknowledge our pain while humbly accepting that Hashem knows that this is what we need right now in order to continue fulfilling our mission.

Holding on to the foot might suggest ANTICIPATION and TIMING?

Great, Rabbi, but let me suggest HOLDING on,
may be about HOPE 4 the FUTURE.

By holding on, we can have expectations, and CURIOSITY. As Hillel put it:
The Jewish People wonder about TIMING and NOW.

(NOW, WON and OWN contain the same letters.) Thanks so much,
