"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

Rosh Hodesh Iyyar

Today and tomorrow mark rosh hodesh Iyyar, the beginning of the new Hebrew month of Iyyar.  Israel's independence day is coming up, and we are two weeks into the Omer.

 I have ordered a rainbow kippah (for gay pride) and I have decided that no matter where I plan to be that day, I will wear it the day after it arrives.  I have also purchased a new kippah by Israeli artist Yair Emauel because his work is beautiful.

I am changing my major to Jewish studies.  Judaism is my passion, my obsession, and my joy; everything I do that's unrelated simply feels like a waste of time.  So happy rosh hodesh, everyone; here's to new beginnings!

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
