Sometimes, we are reminded that it often the best moments that are hidden throughout the day–scattered about for us to notice them.

Hearing the voices of children singing the Sh’ma; listening to their answers, both profound and silly, of what kind of freedom they want in their lives and the world…and how they can help get there; realizing the blessing of health and celebrating having gotten through past healing; seeing a picture which brings back a rush of sweet memories; hearing steel drums of a collection of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim children and teens from the Galilee; receiving an unexpected compliment from a surprising source; a flower blooming in the grass…

So many moments that often we pass by without noticing.  But like the Afikomen, we need to seek them out and find them in the crevices of life.  And like Moses wandering down a dirt path and seeing a bush that burned and kept burning, we need to stop and see the miracle on the side of the road.
