Chanukah Preparation and Shabbat Vayeshev

I received this quote from Rabbi Michael Berg and loved the way it ties Shabbat Vayeshev together with Chanukah Eve. Here, see what you think:

And these words lit up my inbox today, too, in an email from FridayLight.org.  I found myself taking a deep breath and starting relax about this special Shabbat before Chanukah when I read:

Chanukah starts tomorrow night. Shabbat is our chance to refuel. When you light your Shabbat lights this afternoon, let the lighting work its magic. Somehow, just the act of lighting gives us a break from all the pressure. Striking the match, lighting the candles, saying the blessing, taking a moment to exhale and to connect to our Creator. It evokes the perfection that we embody, just by being you.  Don't worry if your latkes are not perfect, or if your applesauce comes from a jar. You are beautiful as-is, and G-d celebrates every single good deed that we do.
