-I was on a trip with my family this week. I was unfamiliar with the roads and was following my Gps. It was a little confusing on the screen and I made a wrong turn. I made a u turn on the side street and drove up ahead to the light to turn back onto the highway. The light turned green and I tried to make a quick turn before the oncoming cars. It was a close call and the oncoming cars just missed me. I continued driving straight for a few minutes when I noticed a cop behind me with sirens. After a minute I realized he wanted me to pull over we pulled over. The cop came to our car asked for license and registration and told us we did 2 things wrong illegal u turn and failing to yield to oncoming cars. I thought he would never let us go because we did 2 things wrong. My wife said some tehillim and we prayed that we wouldn’t get a ticket. The cop came back 2 minutes later hands us back the license and registration and says drive safer next time. I couldn’t believe it I was so happy and thankful to Hashem for saving us from getting a big ticket and points.
-Saw beautiful kidush Hashem in Lakewood this morning. I was on the line to pay at the bagel store and the person in front of me was an elder man who had on one of those army veteran caps. He was telling the cashier all he ordered so he can tally up the bill. He had a nice sized order. The cashier says that will be 77 cents. The man did a double take and said how much? He said 77 cents. He said how can that be, the cashier tells him- another man on the line gave me money to pay for you to show his thanks to you for your service to our country and said to tell you THANK YOU. He was thrilled and put on a gigantic smile. He asked which man, the cashier answers a nice jewish man that was here before your turn on line. The veteran turns to me smiling and says this happens often to him and every time it happens he takes the money he would have spent and donates it to charity. So I guess this jewish man also gets a zechut for the extra charity as well. Mi- Kiamecha Yisrael.
-Thank You Hashem for saving my 16 year old daughter this week who went jogging but passed out from dehydration and low blood sugar. Thank You for sending the off duty police officer who found her and called the ambulance. B”H she was attended to and is recuperating well.
Thank You Hashem for saving my 22 year old son in March when he fell through the roof of an old warehouse he was working on. Thank You for leaving the parked crane just under the spot where he fell so that he could fall on it instead of the 25 feet to the floor. Thank You that he just had a sprained ankle!
Thank You Hashem for saving my 26 year old son a year and a half ago when he was held up at gun point. Thank You that although he experienced trauma, he was not physically harmed, and they only took his cash. Thank You that he moved with his family away from that State and now lives 2 1/2 hours away, and You’ve give him a good job!
Thank You Hashem for guarding my 28 year old son during his service in the IDF and thank You now for giving him a good job!
Thank You Hashem for giving me my own business doing what I love, for helping me meet expenses in the first year, and improving my talents.
Thank You for the wonderful home You’ve provided for me, and my loving family. I am so grateful.
-My mom was in Brooklyn on Sunday helping my sister with some errands. As she was doing some errands, she realized her cell phone was missing ! She retraced her footsteps & she remembered getting out of the car on Kings Highway & East 9th St. She said she must have forgotten it was on her lap, and it probably fell onto the street when she was getting out of the car. She went back to the spot where she thought she lost it & she could not find it. Her granddaughter said to say the beracha and you will find your cell phone, so she said it & she still could not find it. A few hours had passed, when suddenly a man texted my mother’s day worker saying he found a phone and can she help him find the owner? The day worker calls my Father, my Father calls my sister and says “Get Mommy on the phone”. My Father tells my Mother that a man found her phone and you have to go to East 18th St in the next 10 minutes to go get it. I took my Mom to get her phone and the man is waiting outside to give it to her. My Mom was so thankful & offered him a reward. He says it his pleasure to fulfill the mitzvah of returning a lost object and refuses to take anything from us. Thank you Hashem for making an honest Jew find her phone and helping him find the right owner!
-happened last year but I remember like today… there were mosquitos that were in my room for a whole week straight and I could barely sleep every night- besides for biting they also buzzed in my ear and I had to sleep with a blanket covering my face,and the worst part is I couldn’t kill them cuz it was in middle of the night…Then that week on Shabbat I go upstairs to get something from my room, I look on the wall and lo and behold there’s a mosquito there! I look around carefully on the walls and I see the other one. I was SO tempted to kill them that second and was justifying myself with a million excuses but I stopped and said HaShem controls everything who do I think I am to be mechallel Shabbat.
That night motzai Shabbat I was getting ready to go to sleep then I remembered them I look up and they were still there!! I was able to get rid of them all and they did not harm me on shabbat (it was already like 12 at night bugs don’t sleep for that long)
Baruch HaShem it was really a miracle!! Its the small things that really count!
-Hashem is so kind! I had a very long trip into Cedarhurst from Lakewood today. Lots of traffic, rain, getting lost(no GPS or Waze) – it was challenging. The return trip took a quick 1 1/2 hours house to house. That’s right – 1 and a half hours – I’ve never ever seen the Belt Parkway with few cars on it and move at a fast pace….. For whatever reason Hashem willed that the trip in be the way it was and serve as yissurim for whatever purpose – after the purpose there was no more reason and the trip home was an absolute pleasure! I love you so much Hashem!
