“Here I am”

ב׳׳ה

Return ch. 1 (adaptation of Exodus ch. 3)

1 And Miriam helped with the Tot Shabbat of Janice, one of her Jewish mothers, the principal of the Early Childhood Center; and she left from finding volunteers, and came home, to family.

2 And the One appeared to her in a flame of fire out of the midst of a tree; and she looked, and, behold, the tree burned with fire, and the tree was not consumed.

The tree burned with fire, and the tree was not consumed.

3 And Miriam said, “I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the tree is not burnt.”

4 And when the One saw that she turned aside to see, the One called to her out of the midst of the tree, and said, “Miriam, Miriam.”  And [Miriam] said, “Here I am.”

5 And the One said, “Do not come any closer; take off your shoes from your feet, for the place on which you stand is holy ground.”

6 And the One said, “I am the G-d of your father, Abraham.”  And Miriam did not hide her face, for she was not afraid to look upon the One, because she knew that if she was paying attention, her days could be filled with moments just like this.
