We said yesterday that that Shavuous is your wedding day. G-d is the groom, Klal Yisroel is the bride and the Torah is the ring.

Did you know that on Shavuous the Torah you are getting is your amount of insight for the whole year? Do you realize the power of one insight?. Rabbi Akiva at the well (Avos D’Rebbe Noson 6) and the story of the imprint on the rocks gave him the strength to overcome all adversity for the rest of his life.

This is just one experiential insight! Imagine the power of many more. Once again yearn and dream of the power of your wedding day and the amazing ring you might be getting.

Tomorrow we will learn how to get a better ring

Excerpt from Sparks from Berditchov - an Inspirational Guide to Avodas Hashem by Yaakov Klein

Already Singing: Even in the precarious moments Kal Yisrael spent stuck between the Eguptian army and the raging sea, they had such perfect faith they would be saved that they already began singing. If we work on our faith that our Father in heaven will never forsake us,and that everysituation in life, no matter how negative it may seem, is always for our best, we can already begin singing even before the salvation arrives....

A practical verbal introspection to help us focus when working on the midda of the day

Thank you Hashem for my life that is my unique opportunity to direct the life force within me that might naturally further conceal You.. Please help me purify my heart. I want to purify my heart so that I sincerely have heartfelt emotions only to fulfill the Torah and emulate You. May these deep emotions be honestly reflected in my speech and deeds so that Torah and the force of Your Lovingkindess are seen and felt in the world. May it be a merit for Klal Yisrael and an acceptable teshuva that fixes what needs to be fixed and that generates eternal life and makes a kiddush Hashem.
