"And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.
And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables."
I was reading this today and thinking how amazing it would be to see the direct work of God... the handwriting of God, and to see his words. How supernal to be in his presence and read what he had to say. And then, of course, I realized that although we don't have every part of that experience, what we do have is remarkably close. We might not be talking to God "face to face," as he talked with Moses, but we still have the opportunity to talk to him as a friend and listen to his wisdom. It's true that we don't have his handwriting in front of us, but we do have his words, and we can still read them and learn from them, every day. Today, let's not let the power to communicate with and learn from God be any less because for us it is normal. We still have a chance to know God's thoughts. :) A chance to learn from him directly. The tablets mentioned in these verses were broken by Moses when he saw the wickedness of the people. Let's not make the same mistakes and lose the same enlightenment... let's read and pray, and see those actions as the miraculous opportunities that they are.
