Every Preparation Day (Friday before Shabbat) we busy ourselves rushing to ready our homes and meal for Shabbat. We're often so busy that we can lose sight of the purpose and blessings of Shabbat. A couple of years ago I got into the habit of prayerfully reading the Tehillim each day. It has truly blessed my life. Within those songs are strength, comfort, peace, and rejoicing. They are a reminder to us that no matter what is going on in our lives that The Eternal watches over us. I hope that sometime during your busy Preparation Day that you will take some time with the Tehillim. It is with this in mind that I have started this blog, which are insights into each song, posted every Friday morning. Shabbat Shalom!

How majestic is your name! In all the heavens and earth there is no God but our God. He is our master. He is our salvation! He is the creator of all things and judge of all men. Look at the stars, the sun, the moon. He created these things and placed them in the heavens. Who are we, that you should care about us? As we enter in to your Shabbat, let us remember the majesty of your name, your salvation, your lovingkindness, your mercy, and your forgiveness. Amein!
Listen to me, you who follow after righteousness, you who seek Yahweh: look to the rock whence you were hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence you were dug. Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you; for when he was but one I called him, and I blessed him, and made him many.
