What was Rebekah thinking?

What was she thinking as she pushed Jacob out the door to bring her young goats, as she dressed him in his brother’s robes, arranged the goatskins on his arms,  placed the savory dish in his hands, and sent him in to appropriate his brother’s blessing.

What went through her mind as she sent this son, back to Mesopotamia, fleeing for his life?

From the day she first capably watered ten camels, and followed Abraham’s servant, Rebekah showed herself to be decisive, quick-thinking, an organizer.

Now organizing God?

Shel Silverstein once wrote,

And some kind of help is the kind of help that helping’s all about,

and some kind of help is the kind of help we can all do without.
