So after two hard days of feeling really blue, it turned to Friday and the sun began to fade away into the horizon. I grabbed my bowl filled with spagetti and hoped in my car. Singing some Shabbat tunes, I drove to the next city. When I arrived at my friends school, I met up with my friend and we walked to another friends apartment. There we sang and ate and laughed. We talked about school and about our weeks craziness and what was to come this week. Towards the end of the evening my friend and I walked back to the other side of campus singing and laughing. Then I drove home and went to bed.
After a long nights sleep, I felt much better after resting up. In the morning I rode my bike and walked around the nearby park. A little bit of sunshine and slowing down my week did me well. It lifted my spirits and hinted at good things to come. After reading some prayers, singing in hebrew and reading some thought provoking books, I felt renewed. I recognized just how human I am and just how amazing and merciful G-d is! It is amazing what Shabbat can do to you, if you let it. Shabbat helps me to refocus and to be mindful of what is important. It helps set me right back on track. Shabbat unlike almost anything else, is ALWAYS reliable. Whether you want it there or not, every Friday at Sunday, it will begin. It will go on whether you recognize it or not. It will comfort, heal and inspire you. Shabbat is divine and if Shabbat is reliable I am pretty sure that says something huge about G-d. He is thee most reliable! Thankful for the renewed spirit and uplifted attitude towards the week ahead. May only good things be to come.
