Emotional Overflow #2: Thank You!!

I realized that I've been living a charmed life. No, not a charmed life, a siyata dishmaya life. As I get older and learn more about the world, I realize it more and more. I'm shocked by things I read. About family situations. About abuse. About lack of love. About lack of understanding. Things that many many people, rachmana litzlan, have been touched by.

So I wanted to publicly announce thanks to Hashem. 'Cause he runs my life, and whatever He does, he does perfectly. Of course!! There's an incredible weight that lifts from your shoulders when you realize that things that happen to you are from Him, and therefore are by definition good...even if sometimes it's harder to see than other times. You make your Papa happy, and He takes care of you! And even when you do bad, He's there, waiting, still doing good for you. And He loves you. And me. :)

(No, that still doesn't negate EO #1-cause we want to make Him HAPPY!! Seeing His children fight doesn't do that...:( )

To the blogosphere: She's not just saying that. She really means it. I'm constantly in awe of this girl's bitachon...

Just thought I'd mention that.

"... you can't cause bad things to happen."

Do you really mean that?
Are you saying that no matter what I do, nothing bad will ever happen to me? That my actions have no consequences as to the out come? Which means there is no bechira.

I'm not sure you meant that.
Probably; that no matter how bad things are to us, there is an ultimate good, a purpose.
Or, that however bad you are, He is still doing good for us.

Maybe some clarification is needed, or is it just me who read it that way?

No, you're right...I have trouble with words. I understand concepts, but can't give them over so well..:\

OT, but thought you'd like to know.

I happen to know Julia Blum's agent, and she says that the Stand Tall album will be coming out on CD sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks, yg-I have it already-on tape. How does one get one aside from at her concerts, though? I've never seen them in Judaica stores...

yeshivaguy said...

They should be in most Judaica stores.
You probably have to look around a bit. The women's stuff usually is not front and center.
