Conversation over Breakfast

Setting: Breakfast Table.  Lisa and Matthew are looking at the latest random Christian bookstore catalogue which arrived in the mail the preceding day.  

Matthew: Look, here's a Shofar Horn for $200.  

Lisa: Yeah.  That's what we need.

Matthew: And look!  A Hebrew Prayer Shawl with the Prayer of Jabez on it.

Lisa:  That's what I need.  It's probably why my boarders are not expanding.

Matthew: Yeah.  I've been meaning to talk with you about that.

Forget expanding your borders... I guess all that talk about practicing Jubilee was just talk, after all.

Please send me a picture when Lisa gets her prayer shawl and starts to use it.
