It's How You Look at It

The sun does rise every day, even when we can't see it. And the sun shines every day all the time, too.  Sometimes it's just all hidden away.

On a winter's morning like this one pictured here, it's hard to predict whether the sun or clouds will dominate the day.  We need both.  Without those clouds there won't be rain and without the rain we'll all die.  So, when it's winter here in Israel, we must remember that a rainy, wet day is a glorious beautiful one.

I really appreciate and agree with the Bima Ima's post about taking a new path.  We shouldn't let ourselves get into a rut of "this is the only way..."  There are many ways to do things, and it's good to shake ourselves up periodically.

It's good to reflect on life.  That's the key to תשובה Teshuva, Repentance a cornerstone of Judaism.

To me, refection is the key to growth, to moving forward.
