This is a very special Shabbat, we learn something new every week, I love the interpretation and the lessons we can take into our lives.
This week we read about the outpouring of generosity and the intense desire to give. Vayakhel illustrates how we ourselves are “made in the image of G*d” and how we best demonstrate this likeness by using our G*d-given ability to create beauty, splendor, glory and harmony. G*d is a Creator, G*d is a Giver. When we create, when we give, we are most G*d-like.
Even if what we create doesn’t appear “beautiful” to us because it might contain painful parts, may G*d give us eyes to see the beauty beyond the pain – that’s a beautiful gift, too.
Wishing everyone far and near a BEAUTIFUL Shabbos! Of course I can’t wish you a “creative” Shabbos because, y’know, halacha. smile emoticon Yet hidden beneath my Shabbos blessing for you and for me is a renewing of our Creative Spark.
Shabbat Shalom and love from me to you!
