If I Could

Though I don't have much blogging time, I so wish I could list all the various miracles that have happened in the past few days.

I recently went on a blog, and on it someone was joking about some miracle. Ha ha. My heart swelled. If only they knew miracles did happen. I feel that if I put them out, I'd be regarded as crazy, but I know what I've seen. And much has been said.

The most recent of all was the "lady in black" who, each time the Israeli troops attempted to enter a house to search for Hamastans, she would appear and beg them not to enter the house. This happened about three times. (the beautiful part -the part that won't get reported, is the compliance of these soldiers who allowed this mysterious lady to pull at their heartstrings! What if it was a trick?!)

Only afterwards they realized that those houses were boobytrapped. I'd like to know how they figured that out. But it seems this is one of the many miracles that was confirmed.

Another one, is that every time a rocket is shot at Israeli towns, the sirens go off and people run to various designated protective sites. Well, the last rocket that got launched just before the cease fire -no sirens rang! Luckily for that because the rocket landed right on one of those protective sites - no one was there. One lady who was nearby got injured.

This is a wake up call!

We are not at war with Hamas. We are in an internal spiritual war. People will struggle and struggle and try to find out who is to blame, why is Israel x, and what is Palestinians y. No. Those things are irrelevant. Fixing ourselves internally will sort its way outwardly and fix our outwards situations. I know this sounds crazy. This messages it meant more for the sloven believers who need a stirring.

No time for hesitation!

Obama came into his presidency riding on the notion that its time for a change. Change truly IS in the air. He got it. He rode on it. Now its also up to us to ride the waves of change as well. Pull out your big guns. Your Psalms, prayer books, your good deeds, tefillin /philacteries, your acts of charity, alms. Put on your caps /tallis, you superheroes. Win the favor of God for the Holy One, Blessed be His Name, wants to be conquered.

We must try to bring peace WITH peace THROUGH peace. Let's try?

(you can read more miracles from Rabbi Brody at Lazer Beams blog)

I have a hard time discounting the story, because we are always taught to believe in miracles. if miracles can happen, why can't this be one. If you throw out this story (unless you have proof it was made up), then you also have to throw out every chassidishe story you ever heard growing up, any story about Eliyahu Hanavi showing up to save someone or make a minyan or to learn with someone, etc.

While I have no idea if it is true or not, I have no problem believing it could be true as a miracle.

and welcome back!

Hi Rafi!

I also have a hard time discounting these stories. But what does it mean that these miracles are so out there?

Thanks! Good to be back.
