Yesod shebe tiferet…Foundation in beauty.

“Tiferet” oil on stainless steel refrigerator door,#3 of 7 of the “Sustenance in Exhile” project 5770/2010 Counting the Omer project

Tonight, Sunday night, April 18, 2010, we count twenty days, which is two weeks and six days of the Omer.

Jon is my foundation, he fills my life with beauty and stability.  He is tiferet in every sense of that word which is so unique among the sefirot, the divine characteristics.  He is my everything—lovingkindness, strength, beauty, endurance, humility/gratitude and foundation and ultimately he embodies personal dignity as well.  Everyone says he is a saint because of how he puts up with me.  But he is not a saint.  Definitely not.  He is a man–in every sense of that word.  My beautiful man. Everything good about me I owe to him and to our daughters.  Everything good about my life I owe to him. A saint is loving because that’s what saints do, it’s no accomplishment—A man, however,  has a choice about who he is, how he behaves…..

Jon is tiferet and everything tiferet implies, by hard work and hard choices.

This is the third refrigerator door of the Sustenance in Exhile Series:  Tiferet.
