Beginnings, beginnings, beginnings. A new Jewish year, a new school year, back to Hebrew school, maybe new friends, certainly new things to learn. You may feel like you've had so many new things thrown at you, you just have to stand back and take a breath. Then you put everything in order and create your new schedule. That is what the story of Genesis is all about: creating order out of chaos. God created a "sky" folder and an "earth" folder and then put all the appropriate files in all the right places. That way God could find them again when God needed them. Try to imitate this by creating order in your room. That way you won't spend an average of five years out of your life looking for lost objects.
