Day 7 of the Omer

The last day of the first week of counting the Omer is represented by the Divine Attribute of Malchut - Sovereignty or Leadership. And so today, we recognize the Leadership in Lovingkindness that comes to us from G!d.

This is also our last day of having the Moon as the representative of our creation connection. We can see the effect of the gravitational pull of the Moon on the water in Earth's oceans when we see the rising tides. The Moon has an impact and makes a difference to life on our planet. 

We, too, can have an impact and make a difference to life on our planet when we act with leadership -- leadership stemming from the Divine Attributes of Leadership embedded within Lovingkindness. May our sense of being loved by G!d give us the strength to open our mouths and express words of lovingkindness that lead others as we follow in G!d's footsteps.

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha'olam, asher kid-shanu b'mitzvotav, vitzivanu, al sefirat ha'omer.

Blessed are you Adonai our G!d, ruler of the universe, who sanctifies us with mitzvot and commands us regarding the counting of the omer.

Today is seven days, which is one week of the Omer.
