i wish you happy birthdays & write to you words of chizzuk special for a persons birthday.
What can we learn from Birthday’s? Why did Hashem invent a day to celebrate a persons birth? There’s nothing wrong or goyish with having a birthday cake or party. The lesson we can learn is, that last year on this day i was 39, today i became 40. A complete year has just gone by. What have i accomplished during this time? Was my time spent wisely? (Wisely does not need to mean Learning & Davening etc.., going shopping & spending family quality time is also considered time spent wisely & actually very important to raise a happy & healthy family) Can I actually face Hashem now & say truthfully that I spent this past year wisely? Maybe we can learn that every minute counts & is so precious & now another full year is gone forever.March 14, 2016 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #1142145
^ How do we learn all that from a birthday?March 14, 2016 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #1142146
theres only 1 lesson in the entire paragraph above. don’t take life for granted & let it be wasted C”V. U’Vacharta b’chaim you should choose life.
I don’t know about everyone else here, how often we think about our life, most people make an account of their life once a year-before Yom Kippur- Tzaddikim make an account once a month-before Yom kippur Kotton. I know a person that makes a account of his life almost everyday of his life. He told me this is the final last thing he thinks about almost every night AFTER saying Krias Shma al Hamita he makes an account thinking did i learn today, daven, give tzedaka, help another yid etc… is Hashem going to say to his Malachim i have Charata (pity) i gave this yid an extra day to live. How precious life is. Hashem doesn’t just say this yid will live to 98 this one to 108 & this one to 110, every day & hour is a gift from Hashem, U’vacharta B’chaim-you should choose life-lets learn this now while we are still young.
This is the only lesson i realized that takes us a life time to learn (we never learn it ) although it gets revealed to us so many times each year. HOW LIFE GOES BY IN AN INSTANT. One second, father just made ????? from ??? & Mother is already lighting the candles, something is wrong here something has to be wrong 6 days just flew by .this is how every year goes by we go from ????? & Before you know it its time to order ????? ???? for ????? Then its exactly 30 days to ??? we then count exactly 7 weeks until ?????? then its exactly 4 weeks until ???? ??? ????? then comes the 3 weeks & then 3 weeks of summer & Before you know it its time to blow the ???? already YES A YEAR JUST FLEW BY & IS GONE FOREVER.
