Happy New Year everyone! I pray that you have a healthy, joyous, new year and that you have success in everything that you do!

I leave you with this blessing!

"The LORD bless you and keep you,the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace." Numbers 6:23-26

Interesting Fact: Blessing gesture that was the inspiration for the Vulcan salute.

"In his autobiography I Am Not Spock, Nimoy wrote that he based it on the Priestly Blessing performed by Jewish Kohanim with both hands, thumb to thumb in this same position, representing the Hebrew letter Shin (ש), which has three upward strokes similar to the position of the thumb and fingers in the salute. The letter Shin here stands for Shaddai, meaning "Almighty (God)". Nimoy wrote that when he was a child, his grandfather took him to an Orthodox synagogue. There he saw the blessing performed and was very impressed by it" Vulcan Salute
