Travel has become a part of our existence; I never would have imagined my life would turn out this way. As I lay back on the couch of pillows I can see Abraham sitting in the entrance of our great tent. I can’t blame him the heat is stifling today. As I just lay there I see Abraham jump up and run out to meet someone. My curiosity got the best of me once again. Hmm, three men talking to Abraham and if I know my husband he will be here in an instant arranging something to eat and drink.
As I reach my couch of comfortable cushions Abraham enters the tent. “Sarah!” Abraham runs into to the tent. “Yes my Lord” I answer as he reaches my couch of pillows. “Quickly make bread and use our finest flour.” He said as he takes my hands and lifts me from my laying position. No argument from me, as I rise. He shoves me on my way to the back of the tent. “Bring me three ounces of our best flour.” As I knead the bread and get it ready to bake I can hear Abraham running around the camp.
“Bring me one of our choice calves; I also want curds and milk.” Abraham calls out to the servants.
All the food is ready and Abraham comes back into the tent “Sarah!” he calls out to me. “Yes my Lord.” I answer as I walk towards him and hand the bread to him. Taking the bread from me Abraham leaves the tent and walks over to the three travellers. My curiosity always gets the best of me. I walk over to the tents entrance but I don’t want Abraham or the travellers to see me. I don’t want to miss a thing today.
Abraham sits down with them as they eat and drink. “Where is your wife Sarah?” they ask him.
“She is in the tent.” he said.
Then the LORD said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.”
Tee-hee how funny now that I am old and worn out will I actually bear a child? Really?
Then the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year and Sarah will have a son.”
When I heard the reply and realised that the LORD heard me it felt as though my heart would fail me, I have to protect myself. Abraham called me to them. “Sarah!”
Walking out of the tent I stood before them. Abraham asks, “Did you laugh on hearing the LORDs words?”
“I did not laugh.” I stated as I stood before them.
The LORD said, “Yes, you did laugh.”
I didn’t say anything after that I excused myself and returned to the tent. It’s so embarrassing to be caught out.
