It's still winter, but I feel a ripening

The seasons of our lives don't match up perfectly with the seasons of the year, or the cyclical holidays in the Jewish calendar.  

We each have our own time line, and we don't really know what it is until we're living through it, or more likely, once we pass through it and see it with hindsight.

Oh, if we could only have our hindsight 'way in advance!

These words from my Interinclusion email this week express some of my reality now, in this phase of my growth:

"According to the Meam Loez which is a widely studied commentary from the 1700’s on the Hebraic Bible, the three foundations of a home are a field, a vineyard and a house. This verse refers to all three. 

"Clearly the verse mentions the field and the vineyard, but as was previously discussed, the Jewish woman represents the house. It is not that she belongs in the house but rather that she is the house. 

"Wherever she may be, that is home. This is even seen in the word for house itself, bayit, in that it is comprised of the letters bat (daughter) with a yud in the middle, referring to the daughter of G-d, meaning woman."

Home has always been important to me, even when I was the only one living in it, for many years. Having a strong sense of home, of making a home, I probably wouldn't have said, "I am the home," but now I've come to understand it's the truth. I AM the home.
