Hey person, now that God is giving the Israelites manna to eat I bet they don’t have anything to whine about anymore.
Oh, no. I’m getting thirsty just thinking about it.
After the Lord gave the Israelites manna He told them to move to a place called Rephidim, but there was no water there for the people to drink.
God made It rain down manna. Couldn’t he make normal rain so they’d have water?
Okay, I’ll listen.
The people got really mad at Moses and told him to give them water. They accused Moses of bringing them out of Egypt so they could all die of thirst.
Hey person, didn’t Moses have a plan when he took those people out of Egypt?
Yes, I’ll listen.
So Moses cried out to the Lord and asked Him what to do because the people were ready to stone him.
Moses might get kind of flat if they did that to him.
I am listening.
The Lord told Moses to go before the people with some of the elders and take the rod that he had used to strike the river.
Is Moses going to beat the people off with the rod?
Well, if they all came after him he needed to do something.
The Lord told Moses that He would stand before him on the rock in Horeb, and that Moses should strike it.
Moses struck the rock with the elders watching, and water came out of it for the people to drink.
Hey person, we have lots of rocks on my trails. Maybe you should get one of those rods. Then you wouldn’t have to carry any water along with us.

now that is real clever,,making water come from a stone just by hitting it with a big stick. I think that the stick was a Magic Stick love you Bongos..xxxxx

Patreciau, my person says God put the magic in the stick. What I want to know is if I got a stick would God put magic in it for me too.

Bongo, God helps you and your person “make magic” with every post you write. Thanks!

Thanks Roberta. What a compliment. My person keeps telling me that it’s God who brings all the ideas. We would both run out of things to write about without Him.

We had to laugh when you said that Moses would be very flat if they stoned him… LOL….. Isnt it amazing? Water from rocks!!! Way to go God and Moses! Ginger says she is not impressed unless they can get treats from rocks…
September 16, 2012 at 5:24 pm
Ginger, I’m agreeing with treats from rocks. My person says God could do that if He wanted to, but he’s probably make us work for them first.

Oh, yes, and have your beloved puddle wherever you want!!!!

Marina, that would be cool to be able to take my puddle with me. Yesterday my puddle disappeared again, but another puddle that doesn’t come out very often was still there.

Thanks so much Kevin. My person says God gives special gifts to everyone who believes in Him. She says we have to share those gifts with others though.

He turned a rock into a waterfall? That’s neat!! I’d love a waterfall in my garden!! 🙂
I hope you’re having a fun day,
Your pal Snoopy 🙂

Snoopy, that would be so cool to have a waterfall in both our gardens. I want one with a pool at the bottom so I can go swimming.
