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

I believe in God.

Sh'va Asar B'Tammuz

Today is Sh'va Asar B'Tammuz, the seventeenth day of the Hebrew month of Tammuz, a day of fasting in memory of the breaching of the walls of Jerusalem and the beginning of the three weeks of traditional mourning before Tisha B'Av, another fast day commemorating the destruction of the Holy Temples.  This is one example of my Jewish practice being more traditional than that of my family: I am the only one in my family who fasts on Sh'va Asar B'Tammuz OR Tisha B'Av.

And I have nothing in particular left to say.

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!
