“…..and you say our bare feet are perfect for going to that Holy Ground below?”

9-Mar-12: Acts 7:30-40

30 “Now when forty years had passed, an angel appeared to him in the wilderness of Mount Sinai, in the flame of a burning bush.

31 When Moses saw it, he was amazed at the sight; and as he approached to look, there came the voice of the Lord:

32 ‘I am the God of your ancestors, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.’ Moses began to tremble and did not dare to look.

33 Then the Lord said to him, ‘Take off the sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.

34 I have surely seen the mistreatment of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their groaning, and I have come down to rescue them. Come now, I will send you to Egypt.’





“…..and you say our bare feet are perfect for going to that Holy Ground below?”




“Oopsey, whoopsey, we fallsey downsey, we hurtseys so muchsees”

So screeched  Spotted Goat tumbling down rocky slope to high river bank.

“Waitsee, waitsee, do not give upsee, oh friend in questsees!”

So squaled out Old Stump Woman and Littly Lamb hurting feet in run so lank.



“Oh, if only boots of Shepherd we could wear as we tear down to grab old goat!”

So moaned lambie and stumpie clambering down to reach out old goat from that ditch.

“Oh, if only you would see you are on Holy Ground now in rushing to aide without coat!”

So did Old Crow and Ugly Bird and even Bluesy Fly teach those helpers in loving pitch.

      Tots, it IS an absolute joy to fall down in service to others, guided by the love and light from above! You have the right of it, as usual! Gloria in excelsis, Deo!

    Falling down on holy ground. What a great illustration of the Bible verse.

      Bless you, dear Thomas! I was inspired by that verse in conjunction with a MSNCB.com photo-of-the-week, showing two men wading through tremendous piles of debris after the torandoes last week to rescue a beautifully soulful Chocolate Lab! Their clothing was torn, their hair was all mussed, and they were totally focused on helping that dear dog! They were on “holy ground”, it seemed to me! I failed to save the photo properly, or I would have posted it, as well!

    When we stand in His presence we are to take our shoes off… why? it is a symbol of desire to rid the sinful influence of the world from our lives and our desire to be in submission and humility before HIm. Another great posting.. Thanks. Lord bless

      Yes, Rob, and I hope that I wrote this poem to show that the two helping “critters” were indeed in complete submission and humility in serving as lead from above! Thank you for your wonderful support. So pleased you enjoyed this post! Bless you and all you do for Him and us and so many all around you, Pastor Rob!

    I like this verse the best…
    “Waitsee, waitsee, do not give upsee, oh friend in questsees!”

    It says…do not give up hope. You are so close, keep going.

    Hope is awesome, hope is inspiring, hope is true, hope is here and there.
    Hope is not seen, but readily apprehended, hope is always on, never off.
    Hope is ours, hope is for all, hope is near and far.
    Hope surrounds us, hope is within us, hope never fails.

    You see, hope has a name
    Hope is Jesus.

    Be blessed Rose, keep writing these lyrical illustrations of the bible. 🙂

      Yes, praise be! Let us follow the fine example of the helpers, Littley and Stumpy, of lovingly following the directions of Old Crow and Ugly Bird and Bluesy Fly, acting as messengers from above!

    What lesson ‘your’ critters teach us! To help is to submit wholly not to exert our will.

    Reading through the comments I was very moved by the rescue of the Lab…

    You are exactly right, bardess! To be a true helper, one must submit to the cause of Greater Love completely! So pleased this post and comments touched your heart, Diane!
