Sheep in Haifa, Skunks in Sacramento

Ladaat reports (with pictures) that a Hareidi neighborhood of Haifa was temporarily overrun by dozens of sheep who came to eat the greenery growing in the area.  No shephard was around to the knowledge of the residents there.

Fox News reports on hundreds more skunks than usual in Sacramento, CA looking to mate.

I was thinking of posting about the obvious contrast of the two, but I think a better lesson is showing how Hashem gives every creature exactly what it needs.

עֵינֵי-כֹל, אֵלֶיךָ יְשַׂבֵּרוּ;    וְאַתָּה נוֹתֵן-לָהֶם אֶת-אָכְלָם בְּעִתּוֹ
פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת-יָדֶךָ;    וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ לְכָל-חַי רָצוֹן
The eyes of all wait for Thee, and Thou givest them their food in due season.

Thou openest Thy hand, and satisfiest every living thing with favour.

(אכלם תרתי משמע)


So it was with the Man that Hashem made fall from Shamayim.  So, it doesn't hurt to say Parshat HaMan every day, but especially today - the Tuesday of Parshat Beshalah.

Don't be hatin' on the skunks y'all. The skunk is G-ds creation, too ;-)

Off topic comment, I thought you might find this interesting:

Ahmadinejad wants to more than double Iran defense budget .. proposal is unrealistic, fails to take into consideration extent of Western sanctions on Tehran over alleged nuclear program; Ahmadinejad wants 127% increase.

------

Seems that Haman wants his empire to once again rule over the 127 nations from Hodu to Kush....
