ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec.9

I learn something every Friday night when our Rabbi gives his sermon. Tonight we had to blame some body for what happened to Jacob , Joseph and his eleven brothers .I guess Jacob never had psychology 101 and  a course in parenting and Joseph hadn't yet learned that he could keep some things to himself. The brothers acted like brats. Now that that is done, the lesson learned is that things haven't changed ,although the calendar would show that we have moved thousand of years into another age. Parents still make mistakes in judgment ,  kids still act like brats, even if they are yours and sometimes a dream is prophetic and you should pay attention to it. Our youngest child told us when he was about 3 that he was the Messiah. Being Jewish parents and he was our son, who were we to argue.
