Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 8

Express and direct your JOY toward others through Chesed/Loving Kindness.
Don't hold back, give it away. Let it flow.
When do you feel you must limit your generosity of love or is more love/giving needed?

Needlepoint by Caroline Epstein Blatman, z"l,
the very first needlepoint that beloved friend Caroline had ever created.
Made with love for Joy, embellished with ribboned timbrel, JOY, a Chai, flowers we loved, and in purple!
Caroline had made "Don't Postpone Joy" t-shirts for friends and family.
I had the great delight in introducing Caroline to her beloved husband, Dick, z"l.
They were very happily married for about 20 years.
Rabbi William Kramer, z"l, told me that I created angels by introducing the couple. - Joy

Look forward to seeing all who are joining me for today's Joyous Nature Photo Walk. 
We are photographing at the Japanese Garden in the Sephirat HaOmer energies of today: 
Chesed sh b'Gevurah.

How is your Chesed flowing within boundaries, and in awe and respect?

What have you planted and created to share in lovingkindness?

May the refinement work of cosmic cleansing that I do on myself during the 49 days of Kabbalistically Counting the Sephirat HaOmer help me to mamash/truly be who I am, and need to become. I need to delete klipot/husks (negative influences) and again ready myself for Shavuot by strengthening, elevating and perfecting my midot/character traits.
