“……..and you say all dirt is washed away?”

15-Mar-12: Ephesians 1:3-6

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,

4 just as he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before him in love.

5 He destined us for adoption as his children through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will,

6 to the praise of his glorious grace that he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.








“……..and you say all dirt is washed away?”





So did Littley Lamb, Stump Woman, Spottedy Goat, Ol Crookeye did show

A way back to path, one true path, away from trailing leadetty dirt

So did Old Crow, Ugly Bird, Bluesy Dragonfly, and new Butterfly call wind to blow

New shower of dewy light all on Floppy Ears and Bushy Nose, every single Squirt!



“Ho, now!  Hey, bow!  Weesy allsey cleansey now, ‘spite ol’ thievsies so bold!

“Skip now!  Leap, now! March we, sing we, who now so light and bright.”

For that swifting wind down from next high peak did blow and mist away to gold;

Such gift of  might did bring all friends right clean in kin to Babe of Light!

    So wonderful. The title had me. There is this story: Punchinello and the Most Marvelous Gift by Max Lucado. I think you’d find it inspirational. I do…and my kids are 16 and 19! We still read it.

    This post made me think of that story. My brain just hops in circles like that. 🙂

      I really appreciate the way your hopping-in-circles brain works, Sister Terri! Glad to have this Lucado reference! I sort of suspected you would like the title of this post! Bless you!

      So right you are, Sister Tots! Some folks just get so bogged down in all that fake, shiny stuff, no matter the tarnish, right?

    Ahhhh, Granbee! After a few weeks away from WordPress it was time for me to immerse myself in your blog. Before I opened the page I could feel the energy of it, calling me in, like a voice from a bonkers well. And once lowered in the bucket, I knew I would be submerged in swirling light and eddies of words, calling a path and wanting me to find my own – shining a beam into the soul.

    And, as ever, I was not disappointed 🙂

      Wow-AngelaJane! You wrote my some of my next week’s segments for me–almost! Yes, we each have to jump right in, swirl around in more and more light and find our own very special and unique beam of light just meant for our very own soul! Your feedback is BEYOND encouraging! You have incited me to riot in rainbow colors of light!

        Wey hey!!! Riot away in your kaleidoscope – they are the colours of dreams and truths that you blow into the minds of souls of all who read your words, like lasers of challenge for the chakras with a soft violet bed of enlightened peace that says “I AM with you”.

        Now ‘I’m’ getting carried away in your riot 😉

      Peter, thank you–your comment here made me go back and read those last two lines again! I am now swept away all over again! You are right–those last two lines do really “sing out”, don’t they. Bless you, dear Peter!

    Blessed are we that God rescues us from ourselves. The One that created creation, and breathed life into us…calls us out of the darkness and shines His pure light on our path.

    Blessings to you and yours Rose.
