|Not the Messiah but perhaps an Angel doing a recce prior to the coming?|
The Messiah might come tomorrow. It says [somewhere?] that when the Messiah comes all the leaders of the world will gather in Jerusalem. Well that is happening tomorrow for Shimon Peres' funeral. I'm not sure if the Messiah is into killing two birds with one stone and arriving when the leaders of the world are here anyway, but s/he could be considering it.
My nephew who is studying in Jerusalem this year, has plans to go out of town with friends tomorrow for Shabbat. I suggested they consider traveling tonight as the roads in Jerusalem will be crazy tomorrow. On the other hand, I told him, he doesn't want to miss being here for the Messiah if s/he comes. It's a gamble either way. His choice.
Our early to bed early to rise campaign is doing all right. So far we've not become healthy, wealthy and wise, but I am as ever, optimistic. It may be because yesterday, which was only day 2, we didn't manage to get up before 7.15 am. However today was better (6.45) and we are both going to bed earlier. DD asks me every evening, "are we getting up at 6 tomorrow?" I think she likes it although she doesn't realize that we've not actually managed to get up at 6 am yet, just 6.30 and 6.45. It's a process.
This morning when the alarm went off at 6 am, I pressed snooze for another 10 minutes sleep (and repeated this action several times). After a minute or so a little voice next to me said, "you're awfully quiet." Then we both turned over and went back to sleep for the duration.
Next week Is Rosh Hashanna - the Jewish New year. You know me, I'm always excited about another opportunity to turn over a new leaf, start anew, etc... This is my favourite time of year.
