Tu B’Sheva, 5703

A celebration of the rebirth of trees, and it would be my Jewish birthday this Sunday.  I’ll not bore you with a litany of spiritual events that surrounded my life so many times on this day, but each of them profoundly changed me.  Even during those times G-d and I were at loggerheads.  He was ever the gentleman, persistent with me, but never overbearing.  On this day, alone in an attic of an old house in Denver around midnight on Tu B’Sheva 1582, I yielded to him.  He has remained faithful since then, even during those times doubt consumed me. He stayed the perfect gentleman.

May I keep that same respect for those who haven’t found him.

Because the Hebrew New Year is synced with the ripening of grain, it “floats” every year and doesn’t occur on the same day on the Gregorian calendar.  It is NOT my observed birthday this year, so no well wishes are needed!  I just wanted to talk about it!

    I am not going to say Happy Jewish Birthday because you said not to so just pretend that is not there. Have a great day dear one ❤
