There
was on the
face of
the wilderness
a fine,
flake-like thing...
on the ground...
the people
of Israel
said...
'What
is it?'
[Exodus 16:14-15]
*******************
"I'm very discouraged,
LORD."

[SILENCE.]

"I try really hard
at things,
and just don't
GET anywhere!"

[SILENCE.]

"See?
This is happens.
I pray,
and
nothing!"

[SILENCE.]

"I see OTHER people,
and all they have to
do is look up at the
sky, and POOF!"

"What is poof,
My beloved."

"It's an American English
word from 1950's cartoons,
LORD! I figured You
wouldn't know what it MEANT."

"Don't underestimate
Me,
Mein kinder."

"Whatever.
What I mean is that
all they have to do is look
up at the SKY, and don't
even have to SAY anything:
You just rain BLESSINGS
on them; whether they
were good,
or NOT."

[NOD.]
"Ah.
I see."

"Yeah!
They don't even
have to say a word;
You just bless
and
BLESS them."

"What blessings
do you have,
Mein precious?"

"Yeah!
Yeah!
I've been THANKFUL!"

[SIGH.]
"Oy vey z'mir."

"HEY!
I've been THANKFUL!
It's just this OTHER stuff
that I pray for! You
just IGNORE me!"

"I never
ignore you,
My precious."

"Yeah,
but the thing is
You rain on me
all the time!
Once in a blue moon,
it's that cool, springtime rain...
and, a lot of times
it's that kind of rain
that falls in Pittsburgh
on a midday in November:
cold, cold,
and NASTY!"

[NOD.]
"Even so,
child,
the cold,
chilling rain
makes the
flowers
grow,
also."
********************
The house of
Israel
called its
name
manna...
and
the taste
of it was
like wafers
made
with honey.
[Exodus 16:31]
