When the three were eating the soup from their bowls around the low table they used, Yosef was thinking of the mountain he had been seeing this day in their home, and how it could be just the blankets their child would give back to them. He became suddenly aware of the food he was eating. "This is really good! We have not been having meals like this before. I do not know how you did it better but I would really like having this meal all the time."
Mary said, "It is just the soup with the vegetables we have cooked in it. But Yeshua was putting in seasonings and I did not recognize everything he was using."
Yosef said, "We can have this cooked again, can't we, Yeshua? I would like to see the seasonings when you use them, too."
Yosef ate a little more quickly, still, and when finished he watched their child, until he finished. Then Yosef said, "We can have you bring our blankets back, now."
Their child got up and ran to the separated area where he had taken the blankets, and a large mountain appeared to be right there. Yosef went right after him figuring the child was tricky enough that he might miss catching something.
Mary said, "What about me? I would watch him bring back the blankets for us too." She got up promptly, though a little soup remained in her bowl.
Once in that separate area, their child could be seen running up on one side, and already high up. He came close to the top, and picked up one edge there of what was certainly a blanket. He called out from up there, "Catch!" He was then throwing a blanket down to them. It was catching air and came down spread out until nearly coming over them. They caught it with their uplifted hands, and they maneuvered it to fold up. They both then stared in amazement.
Yosef said, "Where is all that mountain? It was just here!"
The child told him, "It was the blankets, and that stand. You wanted the blankets back and I had to take my mountain down." The child held the other blanket in his hands, and holding it out, he said, "Here."
Yosef said in amazement, "The whole thing vanished when he moved this blanket from it! It was an appearance, but not really there!"
The child said, "But I made my mountain and you know it was there."
Yosef said, "But you are right here, and we were just seeing you far away. Up there."
"I jumped down too, since I was not having my mountain now."
Yosef had puzzlement showing on his face. Then he said, "But then it just looked big. And when you pulled that blanket down, it was clear that it wasn't."
The child said, "What seems to be small will be seen to be great."
"So the mountain you made was showing that to us?"
"If you can take that understanding, so it is, there will be a greater mountain I would make. Still what is judged to be small will be seen as great. So what you judge things to be should not be trusted for the final word for those."
"So this was the blanket all along, while you had it appear to be a mountain. Until you moved it to toss to us, and we saw there was no mountain there. Now that we know, we can take the blankets to where we will sleep this evening."
Mary said, "But we want your help making supper tomorrow as well, Yeshua, and you can let us watch what you are adding to the cooked food."
"Certainly. You should know. Our God wants the provision for us all this way, as we will be having it." He then accompanied them to the space in their simple home where they lay the blankets for where they would sleep that evening.
