Shabbat Meditation

“Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is. Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the LORD G-d Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph.”

- Amos 5:14-15

A Woman Of Strength

A woman of strength,
Has courage to face the day,
And the confidence,
To handle whatever comes her way.
A woman of strength,
Has so much love to give,
And more compassion,
It gives her a reason to live.
A woman of strength,
Can face trouble with more hope,
Face adversity,
Always finding the strength to cope.
A woman of strength,
Can take the bad with the good,
And learn from it all,
With a sense of pride that’s understood.
A woman of strength,
Can conduct herself with grace,
Hold her head up high,
And dignity always has its place.
A woman of strength,
Can face almost anything,
And can look forward,
To what the future will possibly bring…

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. 
I do not give to you as the world gives. 
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
~John 14:27

I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of you among the peoples.

For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

Be exalted, O G-d, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.

~Psalm 57

In G-d, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise—

in G-d I trust and am not afraid.
What can man do to me?

I am under vows to you, my G-d;
I will present my thank offerings to you.
For you have delivered me from death
and my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before G-d
in the light of life.

~Psalm 56
