2016 11 28 – Prayer and thoughts

Shalom, mishpochah (family)!
 
May the L-rd bless you and keep you.
 
May He make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you.
 
May He lift up His countenance to you and give you shalom.
 
 
Mishpochah…I heard something really enlightening about this blessing. Think about this. How does a father lift up His face to His children? By holding them up in the air! Consider a father of a small child. He lifts that child up and looks up at him/her. What a sweet picture!
 
Avinu is lifting us up like a small child and looking up at us! And what does a father who holds his child up typically do? He smiles at the child! He laughs with the child! He is playing with the child!
 
What a thought!
 
Avinu…our Father…loves us and does endearing things with us, like holding us up! His look into our faces is one of deep love and compassion!
 
I pray you find comfort in this today.
