I’m going home for Chanukah, G-d willing!
I am just waiting and waiting for the day that I’ll be home again and all of these days seem to be flying by.
It reminds me of Parshas Vayeitze, when Yaakov worked 7 years to marry Rochel and the days went by so quickly because of his love for her that it felt like only a few days.
We could apply this concept to our lives as well. We are waiting for Moshiach to come, and if we feel our love for the day when Moshiach will be here, then before we know it, Moshiach will be here.
This week I wrote a report for school about a righteous man named Reb Hillel Paritcher. One of the many things he taught is that when one is in a dark room for a while, their eyes adjust to the darkness and they get used to it. However, we have to remember that we are in darkness, in exile, and can’t let ourselves be satisfied with it. We have to do everything we can to turn the light back on, and bring Moshiach now!
Have a good Shabbos!
