Pillar of Fire
So, the other day, I lit a candle at the breakfast table and was reading to the kids stories about the Exodus and the tabernacle. I have a pamphlet that has a picture of the tabernacle and had propped it up on the table. We were talking about how the cloud moved from the tabernacle and that meant that Israel was to pack up and follow the cloud which would turn into a pillar of fire by night. Just then, I saw a giant flame coming from behind the tabernacle pamphlet. Yep, I had set it too close to the candle and had a great visual aid of the pillar of fire for my kids. No worries, other than a little ash on the table and a trashed pamphlet, everyone and everything was unscathed.
