A few months ago, a friend and I were chatting on the phone while he was waiting for a plane. I told him about my moderate fear of flying and my superstition: When ever the plane was taking off or landing I would recite the Shema- over and over again until I felt secure. I mentioned that there were some in my life who thought it was silly... This friend, further endeared himself to me when he told me that his mantra of choice was Esa Enai.
Susie Lubell of Mishmish Studio is inspired by this psalm as well
I will lift up my eyes to the mountains.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth
