okay so i've been tagged by The Babysitter and it would be really mean not to respond plus i also think it's kinda cool and interesting... you guys get to learn some RANDOM stuff so why not? (check out The Babysitter's explanation of the meme)
They veered off toward the philosophical and debated thenecessary properties of bashert. They knew that they wereall looking for their destined match. But were they requiredto believe that there was only one person out there for eachof them? The romantic and the fervent among them insistedthat they were. God matched boys to girls before they wereborn. The more practical girls challenged this notion. Whatabout people who died before they got married? Did that meanthey never had a bashert, because of course God knew that theywould die young? Or did it mean that somewhere out there, thesecond half of this couple was hopefully searching for a bashertwho was dead?this excerpt is from p. 56 of The Outside World by Tova Mirvis.I really liked the book and I have read it more than once. It'sfunny actually that these few lines have to do with somethingi've previously written about- like bashert and height, etc. a total"accident" (nothing is really an accident; everything is plannedby Him). Hope you found it interesting!next meme coming soon!
