21st Day of the Omer

21st Day of the Omer

 

CHOOSE

Dearest God,
Creator of light,
You set before me
blessing, life, goodness.

Guide me, comfort me.

Through my longing,
gently urge me to find my life’s purpose.

Like the grasses of the field
bend to the wind
I bow, humble.
I choose life.

Rabbi Karyn D. Kedar, from Omer: A Counting

 

 

Baruch Ata Adonai Elo-hei-nu me-lech ha-olam a-sher ke-d-sha-nu b- mitz-vo-tav, v-tzi-va-nu al s-fi-rat ha-omer.

Praised be you Adonai our God who rules the Universe instilling within us the holiness of mitzvot by commanding us to count the Omer.

Today is the twenty-first day – three weeks of the Omer.
