Update and Glimpse of G-d



Just sharing the joy -- I am just about over the peak of my really hard schoolwork, and plan to catch up on the blogging big time starting this weekend iy"H.

Since I have had so much time to generate various ideas since my last posts, I will gladly take "orders" of what you'd like to see next. The menu can be found in the comments to the Monarch post, here. Or you can give your own ideas of what you'd like to hear the BasMelech views about.

I am proud to inform you that this establishment is currently negotiating a merger with the noteworthy Torah Thoughts/DOTK blog. All in favor, say aye.

Sorry, Dreamer, we don't serve alcohol here; I suspect there are minors present. The beverage of the week is coffee! And that is on its way out -- yuck. No steak, either -- just half baked food for thought. And lots of ice cream, of course.

Meanwhile...
Today I had yet another reminder that G-d is in control and you will get what's coming to you no matter what you do. I was running late getting somewhere, so I thought I'd splurge on a cab in the hopes of getting there faster, possibly even on time... and through various circumstances ended up arriving an hour and a half late! (Usually a 40-minute ride by car, an hour by public trasportation) Could have paid two dollars for the same result... Oh well, no price is too high for a good practical mussar lesson. You lay your plans, but you will get where you're going exactly when you're destined to be there.

Your story reminds me of a joke.
This fellow decides to walk one day instead of taking the bus..and traffic is crawling up 5th avenue and he's keeping pace the whole time on foot until he reaches his destination.
As soon as he gets home he tells his wife..how good he feels..
"you know I saved $2 walking behind the bus..it felt so good.."
at which the wife retorted..
"you idiot..you shouldve walked behind a cab..you wouldve saved $5!"

Do you know that Ben and Jerrys is responsible for me not willing to kep cholav yisroel

Dreamer -- I'll miss you lol. You're still welcome... but bring your own booze.

Sara -- Yes, I used to think so. But here that wasn't my point -- it was that no matter what you try, you'll get where G-d wants you to be. So in reality, everything goes RIGHT, we just don't always realize it.

DOTL-- Good one. Only here I had the opposite... took the same amount of time but paid for the cab, not the bus...

Frum Satire -- I feel for you... my reason is Breyer's... The cholov Yisrael brands are improving though...

I'm sure your post was good, but I just couldn't get past the Ben&Jerry's picture. MMMMMMM.....

So, no votes in favor of the merger?

Good, I like TT/DOTK and would hate to see it die.
