Stopping for Minchah

Have a break, stop for Minchah. Working your hiney off all day, slumped in front of a computer screen is not the ideal. We often need to take a little moment to relect, to stop, to pause. Whether it be for G-d, for your family or for your souls. It's time that we all need but so few of us take advantage of. Stop running too fast through life, take time to enjoy the view.

I'm lucky we have Mincha right in the office where I sit!
It's a nice change for 10-15 min and I don't need to move except to open the window!

... have a Kit Kat!

Its been a while, probably about 6 months actually since i stopped work at lunch time for mincha - but now the days are getting shorter, I'm gonna have to get back into that routine. Strange thing is, I will be rushing even more to get there and back, rather than taking time out. and the view around these parts is nothing to enjoy.

Minchah is, lulei demistafina, the most important prayer of the day. Also the biggest Eis ratzon. Rav Berel Wein shlit"a (possibly quoting an earlier source) says that davening at the beginning (shacharis) and end (maariv) of the day is natural, but stopping your hectic schedule in its tracks in order to thank and praise Hashem shows enormous dedication.

Karl, Hashem will give you schar for the effort anyway.

CJ, you are the Rebbe baby. Inspire us more!

TRK: Har Hotzvim, and I won't volunteer any more info. Need to remain incognito. Been working in this neighborhood for 14 years, way before Gan Malcha existed.
