This is my usual TGIF mashup, but this is not my usual Friday. Usually we prepare to rest and enjoy the Shabbat with good food and company. Instead Yom Kippur- the Day of Atonement falls on this day. A day of fasting, prayer and repentance through self-introspection.
If I have ever angered you or offended you, I ask your forgiveness. If you are keeping Yom Kippur this evening, may it be an easy fast and you find the Lord’s favor.
Enjoy the links- I hope you like them.
