Good Shabbos!

Ahuva Faigela of our group shared this idea:
Rebbetzin Tehilla Jaeger said something she learned about the words;
 "bimheira b'yameinu(quickly, in our days)= doesn't just mean the more often implied "in our days",  but with each of our days. With each day may we utilize it to hasten Hashem's universally known glory."

Thank you! Precisely what we are attempting to do in our chaburah.  Each of us are starting to find and explore a method of connecting to Hashem (hisbodedus/ speaking out loud to Hashem, or hisbonenus/ meditation).

If you are anything like me, you will think about these ideas a lot.  The day will pass by, and you will not have done them...

Well, as we see above, each day is a new opportunity to connect with Hashem in the deepest possible way, moment by moment.

Parshas Vayeira:

I saw  (Divrei Chaim) an idea, that we should not wait for chesed (a form of serving/connecting to Hashem) to come to us, rather, we should seek it out, as Avraham waited by the opening of the tent, seeking visitors (18: 1,2).

Even more so, we should carve out a few moments in our day to re-connect to our internal self, our ratzon, and Hashem's ratzon and make sure they are one and the same, rather than wait for that time to open up for us.

Looking forward to Monday iyH. love, aviva rus
