|Where or where did the summer go...............|
We celebrated the last "great" day of Sukkot with a "feast" of roasted turkey, baked squash, stuffing and gravy and pumpkin spice cake and my favorite little pumpkin rolls.
Our thoughts on this last "great" day caused us to question what have we learned during this Torah cycle and how has it changed our lives. We both agreed that this year was more significant than all the years before as we caught the confirmations over and over again for the Greater Exodus. Each year that we study the Torah, it has changed us and drawn us to a deeper love of our FATHER in heaven.
We struggled with so many questions this past year about our path and the difficulties that we seem to have to face over and over again. We've wept and rejoiced and found ourselves overwhelmed time and time again as HE answered our fears, our concerns and our questions through each Torah study.
The bottom line for us is, however, that as we face the start of a new Torah cycle, our feelings are joy, excitement and anticipation for the new things that HE will be revealing in this coming year. So we find ourselves back to "In the beginning..." and we turn our faces forward to see just how HE will once again reveal to us "the end from the beginning".
Be strong, be strong and be strengthened!
