Joy I feel as I "Serve G*d With Joy".
Have I been cleansed with the flow and journey fulfilled with prior 7 Sephirat HaOmer weeks?
How have I reflected and connected?
ALL the Kabbalistic energies are gathered in full that we hold, and encompass as human vessels created in Divine Light of Divine Presence Within Divine Presence.
(May Lenore's, obm, soul dance with her Indian ancestors.)
The miracle of life is that in truly reaching in any one direction, one embraces all three."
― Rebbe Levi Yitzchak of Berdichev
― The Rebbe, Maamar Arbaah Rashei Shanim Heim, 5731
Coming through Malchut, Sephirah attribute of ultimate individual expression, through my hands, holy vessels, I feel the flow of Joy from the Divine, as I offer personal gifts, and they are received. BlesSings Abound.
From where does my JOY come that I "Serve G*d With Joy"?
In my garden each morning for my prayers, I face East toward Jerusalem.
I feel the Indwelling Presence; the strength of the Holy One infuses me with the Glory of Gifts.
In the darkness, waiting for sun to rise, my heart expands in joy receiving arrival of colors aligned amongst clouds and mountains and seen through trees, of the rising sun. The swift hummingbird sits quietly observing atop the fig tree, and nearby, Ms. Mockingbird sings also on an uppermost branch, and radiance appears to our world with a starburst of transcendent brilliance.
I am already full, full as Malchut and filled with joy, joy to Serve G*d With Joy.

Excerpt from: http://joy-shared.blogspot.com/2012/04/gates-to-gilagates-to-joy.html
I've taken the 'sparkle' this week, to visit in Bikur Cholim, another neighbor, Lenore. (Two of her daughters were babysitters for my child 30 plus years ago. ) She has come home this weekend following a month in hospital, to have her final journey at home, while on hospice. As I write following another visit yesterday, I realize that my quiet sparkle was able to especially reach out to the woman's 12 year old grandson. I heard him as he said to me, following me outside, that he needed to release his tears. I told him that tears are healing, a cleansing. I think that each tear is a sparkle of the love he has felt for his grandparents. All the family has arrived to celebrate the grandparent's 60th anniversary. The priest arrived to offer a good-bye ritual for her 'walk', filled with conscious blesSings and love shared between each individual and their loved one.

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 desire to delete klipot/husks (negative influences) and again ready myself for Shavuot by strengthening, elevating and perfecting my midot/character traits.
