The book of Jonah, life and my reflections #10

"But to Jonah this seemed very wrong, and he became angry. He prayed to the LORD" (Jonah 4,1-2) Jonah's prayer to God and his saying, "For the good of my death from my life" raises thoughts about faith and prayer. - First, I do not agree with Jonah. My experience is clear - my life is better than death - Everyone wants to live. Very much want to live; Despite suffering, my life is better than death. The vicissitudes of fate that have passed us have brought me to the realization that both, faith and prayer strengthen man and necessary for victory.

When I got to the meeting on time, I waited for the nurse for about half an hour, and when she finally went to talk to me, she said, "Actually, I was not supposed to meet you because my time is limited; The air in Ra'anana does not heal and I promise you nothing and anyway the rehabilitation is limited to a couple of months ".

"And the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land" (Jonah 2,11) Almost immediately after graduating my design studies at the collage, my friend Dorit suggested that I replace her for a month and a half as a designer at Ma'ariv (a daily newspaper). That's how I got into journalism. I worked for five years at Ma'ariv and seven years at Yedioth Ahronoth (another daily newspaper). Working in daily newspapers is challenging because we live in Israel, where news is chasing news and there is no dull moment.
