Last night, we counted Day 19  of the Omer, which is 2 weeks and 5 days of the counting of the Omer. Today is referred to as Hod sheh b’Tiferet or splendor within beauty that is present.   Tiferet is not simply beauty, it encompasses so much more; when you see the complete picture of Tiferet, you also see balance and harmony too.

Life.  When I see a new baby, I see perfection.  When I see any human being, I am touched by their resilience, their amazing ability to move forward. When I see someone that has struggled or is struggling from great challenges, either physical or emotional, I see them as overwhelmingly beautiful.  Watching people heal or sometimes let go can be amazing.  There is a profound beauty.

Living can be hard.  Serious illness takes your breath away.  Sudden loss can destroy your spirit.  Yet watching people as they emerge from their challenges is profound – Wow!!! And hearing a newborn baby’s first cry or the joy of spontaneous laughter is equally as grand.  Hod sheh b’Tiferet touches upon the intense beauty that can be a part of life.

May we have many moments of intense beauty within our lives.  May we have moments that our hearts truly sing as we see or experience life fully and see some miraculous moments.
