With less than a week to Rosh HaShanah and having to write sermons, this is my last Getting Clean for Elul blog. I want to end on a high note!
We all live in God’s Garden. We are all God’s and the world’s gardeners. I am hoping that we have found our corner of the world to garden, or at least our unique gardening tools. It is time for us to look at our garden and see how we can use the shit from last year to fertilize the garden for this year! This is the beauty of T’Shuvah! This is what our Torah Portion says this week: CHOOSE LIFE!!!
We choose life when we tend to our garden and help others tend theirs. We choose life when we ask for and accept the help of others. We choose life when we celebrate our moving forward and our failing forward.
List the ways you will tend your part of the garden.
List the ways you will choose life more, this year.
