That 3AM Moment

Anyone who wakes at 3 am understands what that moment is all about.

What the silence brings.

 

I recall the many nights then.

I’d stand by the window and stare into darkness.

 

I was told that’s when the gates of heaven are open.

So ask, and so shall you receive.

 

It’s God time and he hears clearly.

So do your best and ask.

 

For many dark nights at dawn

I woke to the stillness of things around me.

 

Gently whispering to the breeze.

One’s deepest thoughts and desires that life could bring.

 

Suddenly I find myself awake once again this same moment then

Only this time I hear myself asking slightly different.

 

I know you hear me dear Angels in Heaven.

And I know God is present in all things.

 

So dare shall I ask in utmost silence.

Please, grant my desire that my fragile heart holds dear.

IMA Is More Important Than

Going north on Ayalon highway you can’t miss the eye-catching yellow building with the word IMA  (mother in Hebrew) in huge letters and beneath in smaller prints: “is more important than.”  Even once the full sentence is revealed with the rest of the word IMA--GINATION and we are reminded that it is a quote from Albert Einstein, IMA still stays with us.

So if IMA is that important, how come so many women today still have to struggle in their roles as mothers and career women?  The other day I heard an inspiring yet somewhat disturbing story. It was about the challenges of a young Israeli career woman-- a mother, in the relentless business world. Her daughter celebrated her birthday at the preschool and had warned the  mother that if she failed to show up to the party on time, she would dismiss her as a mother.
