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

I believe in God.

Counting The Omer

Every year, from the second night of Passover until the day before Shavuot, we count something called the Omer.  We count each night, adding up both the days (49) and the weeks (seven).  If we forget even one night--just one--we have invalidated our counting for the year and are not allowed to get back into it until the next go-round, the following year.  The Omer is always counted after dark, because a Jewish day starts at night.

Last night, after my evening prayers, I proudly recited the blessing and counted the second day of the Omer.  Two down, 47 to go.  So far, so good.

And here is a picture of "Jacob"...*sigh*..."Jacob" needs new pictures.

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!
