The Days of Awe

 The Days of Awe..... After hearing the shofar of Yom Teruah (Rosh HaShana) we continue to seek to hear the voice of our G-d. Now is the time to allow our hearts to be searched~ to make a fearless accounting~ and to be called into agreement with what the Heavens speak. How have I spent my time? On what did I spend my money? How much thought did I give my words?  Where have I gone my own way? In what ways have I cheated my fellow man? How have I dimmed the Light of the Holy One through my daily ways? In  which deeds did I promote myself and draw attention to my 'strengths' rather than seek to be a reflection of the Almighty? Counting the ways in which I have fallen short of His Glory, I seek forgiveness~ of G-d and of my neighbors.

Soon is the Day we go before our King~ for Him to forgive and cleanse us and determine our path. No matter what our coming year holds, we can walk into it with a new assurance that The Creator of the Universe is still on His throne and He is walking with us each step of every day. His love encircles us. His strength rains down on us. There will be no surprises to Him. We can trust that. We can go in confidence knowing that He is already present in our next moment, actively awaiting us in our tomorrow. 

~May you be written and sealed for a good year~
