It's never too late

I am not superstitious but when I do see a rainbow ,I acknowledge that it is a covenant with God.I do believe that there are no coincidences, I do believe that when I go to services on Yom Kippur and I ask to be included in the Book of Life,I have a fifty fifity chance of being at services the following Yom Kippur.To hedge my bets, I do say the Shema every morning. Does this mean that I am religious ? I've had people close to me and in an accusing way say "Oh I'm  not as religious as you are". Is this because I like to go to services on Shabbat and I try, often unsuccessfully , to make Saturday a day of rest ?.This makes me uncomfortable because what do I say back  ,"yes, I am more religious than you". I go to services because I feel comfortable and complete there.I go because people that I like are there.I go to support our Rabbi.I like the discipline of observing the Shabbat.Can you just imagine the high I will get when I do this in Israel, where it is never too late.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
