[HeavenLetters Board HeavenlettersT Comments] question

Dearest Emmy,
It is so much fun when you ask a question about the English language.. It makes me think and realize how many expressions there are in a language that are not decipherable unless you already know.
I don’t know what the context is here, but it would mean like this:
Do you know what a grab bag is? You can’t see what’s inside, but you reach your hand in and get a prize. You don’t know what your prize is until you pull it out.
A poke must have been some kind of sack baby pigs were in. You could take a pig but you had to take what you got. It was like a blind choice.
I’m not sure of the context, but if this is from a Heavenletter, I imagine God would be saying that the choice of our lives was not a pig in the poke. Rather, we knew clearly what we were choosing.
Please always feel free to ask.
Blessings and love, Gloria

What does pig in the poke mean?


May the Lord bless you
and keep you;
may the Lord show his face to you
and have compassion on you!
May he turn his face to you
and give you peace!
