I Am Thankful to You!

BS”D

 

The eyes opening and the first waken awareness sneaks into one’s mind, slowly becoming cautiousness realizing the crossing of the barrier between sleep and wake, understanding that yet another day has been given.

I am thankful to You…

Understanding that gratitude should be among the first expressions of the day, the affection a child has to his father, the devoted devotee.

Living and Existing King…

Recognizing one’s role as a subject to greater forces than one self, the dependency of something bigger, drawing one back to life, seeing the first lights one’s eyes catch and climbing up the latter of awareness.

Who have returned my soul to me in compassion…

Yet another day, another chance to do positive. There is time to correct one self, there is yet other possibilities to improve, to enjoy, to do live up to one’s role in live. Understanding that there still is something to do in life, for one self and for others, that one does not wake up for judgment but for a new chance.

Your Faithfulness is Great.

And one sits up, ready finish the crossing from the sixtieth death to fully alive, passing from the world of the death to the world of the living, this symbolic resurrection happening each day of our lives.

 

מוֹדֶה אֲנִי לְפָנֶֽיךָ מֶֽלֶךְ חַי וְקַיָּים. שֶׁהֶֽחֱזַֽרְתָּ בִּי נִשְׁמָתִי בְחֶמְלָה. רַבָּה אֱמֽוּנָתֶֽךָ

The Modeh Ani, I am grateful, is the first prayer the Jew says in the morning, when waking up from what is considered a sixtieth of death, to a new day full of new chances to do what is right. It is a reflection of the resurrection which, according to Jewish tradition, will happen when Messiah comes, returning the souls to their bodies, and it is an expression of gratitude to the Eternal King, Who gives yet another chance, instead of waking one to stand in judgment.
