Only Now

(Photograph courtesy of Mordechai.org)



As a father I can only now appreciate:


How pained He is when His children fight.


How concerned He is when His children are injured or sick.


How much nachas he gets when His children love and help each other.


How frustrated and angry He is when His children disobey His commands and do what they want, not what He wants.


How loved He feels when His children seek to be close to Him.

Thank you, Neil. It is amazing that we are only a little more than a month away from Rosh Hashanah.
