Much of life is centered around being able to move successfully from one situation/set of experiences to another. Managing those transitions effectively will usually determine how well a person gets to accomplish their goals. In the words of Shlomo HaMelech (King Solomon) in Kohelet (Ecclesiastes) – ” A season is set for everything, a time for every experience under heaven.” And I now stand at one of those ‘transitional’ junctures…
After an extraordinary month traveling around the US and meeting with the most amazing people, it is time for me to finish packing and go to JFK, for my flight home. These have been a “time for planting” – seeds of acceptance and welcome…a “time for healing…” It has been a “time for speaking” and a “time for embracing.” Those times for “shunning” are over, but most of all, it has become a “time of love.” With God’s help, I will be returning at the end of April for a brief trip to continue sharing that message.
The focus of our lives needs to be on restoration, NOT recrimination. On building, not trying to tear down. And on acceptance and embracing our diversity. Our strength comes FROM our diversity, rather then despite it. At home, it is time to start that blog, produce more videos, and yes – finish those books I’ve been writing. And of course – back to guiding, in our beloved Eretz Yisrael. Hey – anyone you know looking for a good tour guide?
Wishing y’all love & hugs as I return to the Chosen Land,
