Prayer for Hanukkah

Wednesday, December 17, 2014 First Morning of Hanukkah

God, spin a dreidel in my life.niBKn9XiA
Roll for me gimmel
when I need to take all the joy
that’s on the table,
and roll for me shin,
when I can afford to give it away.

Spin hey,
mostly life is half and half.

And give me a turn at nun —
I need to sit back
and not always play the game.

I need to sit back
and just enjoy oil enough –
for latkes and
doughnuts,
and light in all the world

I need to remember –
a great miracle occurred here.
Amen.
