Who but our Almighty God, Hashem our Father and King, could have predicted the current worldwide pandemic? I could not have imagined it, but my soul was preparing when I started my Solitary Seder blog last year, 5779.
This year, 5780, I am not only blogging my learning and seder preparation, but I am journaling in a colorful Jewish Junk Journal for all to see! The first person who sees it is me, and that's what really matters. I am journaling my way through this global pandemic and through the Jewish holiday of Pesach, or Passover.
Personal events in my own life have mirrored my learning last year at this time. It is as though I walked through the reality of what I was learning. My learning and prayer-filled journaling prepared me for the year to come.
May our personal preparation for Pesach and our prayer-filled learning prepare us for all the days to come.
