From the Archives at at Chronicles of a Family at Home - Dec. 13, 2007: Manna

Posted in nebulous rants

 "Exo 16:14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing,as small as the hoar frost on the ground."

I have now idenitified the substance that was biblical manna:  Decaf, non-fat, sugar-free, caramel latte from the Starbucks' Drive-thru window. 

Just picture it.  On the Sabbath, you just walk outside and there it is; hot, steamy, environmentally friendly paper cups ("small round thing") with a safety sleeve complete with cheerful logo and full of creamy, sinless java that would melt your heart and make you praise the Lord for taking you out of Egypt! 

And if you insist that "bread" or "wafers" were involved, too, I can accept that:  ever had a cinnamon chip scone?
Ah.  Yet another mystery of history solved.
