Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 10  which is one week and three days of the Omer
Tiferet sh b'Gevurah 

How can I, with beauty and gentleness, live in love and giving, 
in the face of power and strength?
How can my compassionate spirit be supported by discipline?
How do I survive and thrive in an environment, not my normal space?
Why have I chosen to live in a space, that apears as a challenge to myself?

Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 10, one week and 3 days
Tiferet sh b'Gevurah 
Rose Bud Beauty and Balance Within Strength

This red Rose bud holds so much magnificence.
Rose's strength of fragrance and full size is revealed as petals unfold to allow us to view most interior self.
With strong winds and rain, flower remains.

Do you allow yourself to be vulnerable in your beauty, and yet retain your power?

From where does my power come?  My strength comes from the Holy One.

Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 10

Tiferet sh b'Gevurah

Tonight working within compassion to be useful to another, yet staying within limits of how far I can go in having my assistance be accepted.  At times judgemental of person, but surely with unconditional love. 
I am familiar with creating business cards, and know the style of other, so spent time tonight, late as it is, going through many hundreds of designs to cull what would be good for person looking for employment, so they wouldn't be overwhelmed. Spent time earlier helping to critique a new card design and fix. I want her beauty to shine through the card limitations.
During day today, I also spent hours working within limitations of designing an event poster on Healing, wanting beauty within boundaries to shine.
