One Shabbat morning at congregation Shaarei Shamayim, Rabbi Felder asked the assistant rabbi, Rabbi Rosenberg to give the sermon. Rabbi Rosenberg addressed the congregation and said, “Hashem, I hate coconuts.”

Rabbi Felder looked at the assistant rabbi, wondering where this was going. Rabbi Rosenberg continued, "Hashem, I hate eggs." Now Rabbi Felder was totally perplexed. Rabb

i Rosenberg continued, "Hashem, I am not crazy about almonds either, or even straight sugar or salt. But after you mix them all together and bake them in the oven, I love macaroons!”

Rabbi Rosenberg continued. "Hashem, help us realize that when things come up that we don't like, whenever we don't understand what You are doing, that we need to wait and see what You are making. After you get through mixing and baking, it'll probably be something even better than macaroons."
