One Thousand Lice

One thousand lice
that creep and crawl,
hiding in your hair
cannot compete in horridness
to your "Mammy can't talk to us here."

BORUCH DAYAN HAEMES – HASHLIACH RABBI LEVI DEITSCH OBM

The words I saw all the time and prayed I would never see.

There is no 'no' big enough and bold enough able to express my every fiber's cry >;(

When I Go:

I just want everyone to be happy.
That is my message.

Are All Prayers Answered?

This piece by Tzvi Freeman has been resonating in my heart, both before and after it was shattered.

How could it be that a prayer goes unanswered?

Some will tell you that every prayer is answered, but sometimes the answer is, "no."

Those who say this do not understand the secret of prayer. For prayer is when a consciousness below breaks out of its ego and causes delight to the Consciousness Above. And when delight is brought Above, it must return below.

So some will tell you that, yes, the prayer is always answered, but perhaps only in a spiritual realm. Not always can a prayer affect the coarseness of our material world.

Yet this also cannot be, for the consciousness below did not pray for a spiritual blessing, but for a material one. The place from whence the prayer emitted, to there the blessing must return.

Rather, it must be that every prayer is answered, in our world, now, for the one who prayed and for that which he prayed.

The problem is only in the packaging -- that it is packaged in the artifacts of our coarse and dark world, so that at times we cannot see through the wrappings to discover the answer to our prayer.

But there will be a time when all of us will return to the One Above with all our hearts, and then all the concealment of this world will be shattered. The wrappings will fall away and we will see how each prayer was answered in its time. And we will hold all the blessings of all those millennia in our hands

It's like the whole world is waiting with bated breath. Hanging onto a thin sliver, swaying in the breeze, in the hurricane, in the calm. Swaying, swaying, swaying. I don't know what point G-d is trying to get across. It's a scary game He is playing.

Tehillim and Shabbat invites and good resolutions and achdus and tzedakah and more tehillim and more tehillim and more tehillim and more tehillim and more......

The room was black, only the moonlight shone in.

She was tucked into bed. I sat beside her on the bed and looked down at her sweet face. We finished Shema, and now we were softly chatting about this and that. School, silly-bandz, the chasunah, what we should have for supper tomorrow. I wished her goodnight and stayed put, waiting for sleep to overcome her.

The room was peacefully silent.

Suddenly breaking the stillness, the six year old girl asked me, looking up straight into my eyes and all the way down to my soul, "Do YOU have a Mommy?"

"I hate Manchester"

she said suddenly. It was her last night here and we were lying on our beds, silently staring up at the ceiling, each lost in our own thoughts. "I hate Manchester", she repeated, "they killed my sister."
