A mitzva or the opposite of a mitzva?

Once was a chosid who would wake up early and take his young boy to brake the ice in the morning to dunk himself and his boychik in the cold lake as a mikva. One moring it was very cold, so his son was making sounds to fight off the cold, he would say oy oy oy. Then he  dunked him in the mikva, came out and his father put the warm blanket around his child and the boy said aaaaah!
The chosid remarked, my boy let this be a lesson in life, if what you're doing is mitzva then the oy comes before the aaaaah. And if what you're doing is the opposite of a mitzva then the aaaah comes first and then comes the oy oy oy, what did it do..?

How will it be when he comes?

Or maybe one day we will all wake up put on our pants and shoes, say our morning brochas, eat our danish and drink our coffees turn on our i pads to find out that  look Moshiach has come to 770 and has redeemed us all. And that nothing of our perception has changed. Not because Moshiach hasn't brought peace to the world but because we have already achieved it by our own efforts. Maybe one little mitzva is all that it takes to transform the world to complete light and who will be the lucky one to perform that one mitzva?

They tell a story that chasidim were sitting and learning in 770 when one of them stopped and asked what will it be like when Moshiach comes? They did not notice that the Rebbe had opened the door and was standing there when the Rebbe answered it will be exactly like this!

Drawing of a "frum date"

I just wanted to depict what a couple on a "frum date" would look like. It's a very pure subject matter when a man and a woman meet each other for the first time to see if they are compatible to spend their lives together.
