Day 24 Thirty-Day Challenge

Parshah Beshalach

...for God thought, " If the people face war, they
may change their minds and return to Egypt."
     Exodus 13:17


After the escape
after the pursuit
after they really left behind
their status as slaves, of waiting
for the next burden, the next  curt word,
they wanted room to breathe, a place
where they walked with long strides
They chafed under difficult conditions
and wondered if they should have stayed,
but they complained with their own words
unfettered and raucous, but still they questioned
