Ancient Hebrews will stare at this and call it ‘manna’. Manna is the Biblical word for ‘what is it?’. The Purging Lutheran has no doubt they called a lot of things ‘manna’ especially during the Exodus what with pillars of fire or smoke, shoes that never grew old, or grapes the sizes of melons. Today’s purge, or ‘manna’ has an electrical cord attached to it so we can aptly call it ‘the electric manna’ which would have been a great name for a band had The Beatles come out of the Israeli port of a Haifa instead of Liverpool, England. They would have led the Jewish Invasion of musical bands including Creedence Dead Sea Revival, The Electric Dates, The No One Is Righteous Brothers No Not One, Simon and Garfunkel, Sy and The Family Stein, and Crosby, Stills & Nosh.
As it is, this is a vibrating shawl. It is one of those inventions that looks like the way to reduce medical costs but it isn’t. It vibrates and heats your neck and shoulders until nothing happens. Then it gets put away. You need a shoulder rub and straight neck? Go visit yer local chiropractor. They are trained to manipulate your pretzeled spine back to manufacturer’s condition. My Sweet Rib bought this with ‘points’ she earned at work for being a fabulous employee. She used her points to buy this and other various theses and thoses from a catalogue. And, by gum, this baby is as comfortable as it looks … which is why it is being purged away to the goodwill down the way. Or to you. If you want it.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
