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

I believe in God.

Jealousy is an ugly emotion, all-consuming and miserable and the like.  But it's what I'm feeling right now.

The other day I had a *perfectly friendly-sounding, mind you* conversation with someone, the upshot of which was, "Yes, you are more than welcome to put on tallis and tefillin in your room every day if you desire, but please never join our minyan."  So I am horribly jealous of my guy friends, who can just go...join a minyan, any day they choose, and put on tallis and tefillin, and it isn't an issue.

It's sexist, that's what it is.

That is all.

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!
