7 Adar Aleph 5782
One day a shepherd named Moshe took his father-in-law's sheep out as he had done many times before. As he let them roam about the mountainside cropping spring grass to their heart's content, life at home was following its normal course. The women were going about their usual daily chores. The head of the house oversaw it all. And down the road in Egypt, the Children of Israel groaned and cried out under the oppression of their slavery. It was a day like every other day. It was a day like yesterday with no sign at all that the next day would be any different - not that day nor the day after.
But then, in the blink of his eye, Moshe caught sight of a wonder never seen before and never seen thereafter - a bush on the mountainside was in flames, and he saw that despite the flickering and crackling, the bush was not burning up. Then Moshe heard the voice of God Almighty - speaking to him.
Today could very well be a day like that one. And if not today, then tomorrow. Or one day very soon.
