Rely only on Hashem





And the wisdom of scribes will putrefy, and people who fear sin will be held in disgust, and the truth will be absent. The youth will shame the face of elders, elders will stand before minors. Normal family relations will be ruined: A son will disgrace a father; a daughter will rise up against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. A man’s enemies will be the members of his household. The face of the generation will be like the face of a dog; a son will no longer be ashamed before his father. And upon what is there for us to rely? Only upon our Father in heaven.
[Sotah 49b] Source

So true...

And some who one 'thought' of as friends too, seem no longer to be friends...

I am trusting ONLY Hashem...

Gd bless you and yours.

Similar to what I wrote a few months ago.

I’m definitely not the first to say it

Oh my, so true. I'm going through this with my two precious older daughters shutting me out of their lives. Prayers greatly appreciated as it's heartbreaking.
Great post Devorah, love your blog even if I don't comment often.
What strange times we are living in, when what was once good is now evil and vice versa.
May Moshiach come soon.

Comments notification is playing up, so apologies if your comment takes a while to make it to publication. Usually I am notified by email when a comment is left but lately this is not happening.

Tikvah Ruth, I'm sorry to hear about your daughters shutting you out. I know how it feels, my friend's daughter didn't speak to her for 10 years, now they are best friends... things can change, seemingly overnight.

Wow, so true. It is comforting in a strange way. Chazal is telling us we are at the end.
I, too have things that make me scratch my head and wonder....
We literally have one of what will be one of the craziest election years and I could not care less.
Imy busy preparing for what is really coming down the pike.
Get close to Hashem. Develope the relationship and strengthen it. Ain Od Milvado!

Tikvah, may Hashem reveal to you more and more of HIs Love... I am so sorry to hear about your daughters, and I too know of distancing. Painful, so very painful.. we are all here to offer inclusion and safe harbor, love and acceptance... may your daughters find their way back into rapport with you speedily. Good Shabbas

Thank you for your encouraging words Devorah and Basya.
This generation is unlike any generation before, but HaShem is always in control.
Shavua tov!
