A person wakes up in the morning, makes himself a cup of coffee.

He puts the bitter coffee in a mug, adds to it the sweet sugar, pours in the boiling water and adds some cold milk. A cup full of contrasts; hot, cold, bitter, sweet.

Then he says, “Ribono shel Olam, I don’t know how my day will be… bitter, sweet, hot, cold,but one thing I know for sure, it will be “shehakol  n’hiyeh b’dvaro — as You say it will be.”

And that is how a Jew should start his/her morning, knowing that HaShem will pick just what’s right for him out of the sea of contrasts.
