#BlogElul — Elul 23 – Love

“Other stuff I know now:
It doesn’t matter which shirt
you put on this morning
or where your body fat is or isn’t.
God cares not a whit about
which shirt or how your body looks.
The point is love, which shows
just as well in your white shirt
as your blue one;
just as well, if not more clearly,
out of a battered body
as a coiffed one.
Cleanliness matters, yes –
But not how you thought.
In the first place is love.”
~~ Nancy Shaffer

Trying to find beauty and joy in the world around me . I am many things, among them a quilter, a knitter, and an incessant reader. There is not enough time for them all, so I jump in between them as the mood hits me. Professionally - a rabbi; a hospice chaplain.

  1. Hello, I just found your blog on the Berith Shalom facebook page — my son & his family are members there. My other son & his wife just lost a baby at 34 weeks, & I am intrigued by your statement about “I photo blog my way through grief.” — would love to hear more about how you use your creativity in moving through grief. Thank you. Wishing you blessings & much healing, renewal and joy.
