Art by Luis Beltran

To be a person of truth, be swayed neither by approval nor disapproval.

Work at not needing approval from anyone and you will be free to be who you really are.

Rebbe Nachman of Breslov [L.M. 1:66]

I understand the tremendous amount of effort and hard work on your part to put this blog together on a daily basis. As I have written to you in the past, you need to know there are many people who read your blog and many people who will in the future learn about your blog through those of us who work tirelessly to find ways of inspiring people to do Teshuva and maintain a life of Torah and Mitzvahs one step at a time. You have a wonderful gift and a way of giving over such chizzuk and light in a very dark world.

What you accomplish in lifting peoples' hearts and souls through your great choices of subject matters, authors and of course, the incredible art work, can never be measured.

While some people have their morning cup of coffee to get going, I turn on my computer to your blog, knowing I will be inspired and can then move on with my day to do my work.

There are not enough words to say thank you for all of your efforts, but please keep these words and thoughts in mind whenever you yourself have a "moment." Shirat Devorah has its place in the world now.

May Hashem give your continued koach to continue to bring such beautiful light to your readers and may you have the best of health, nachas, and success in all of your endeavors.

Thank You... Thank You...

Sarah Chava
