“……and The One stopped on His Death-Road to HEAL someone?”


Lenten Journey – Day 39
Biblical Scripture: Mark 10:32-34, 46-52
Open Invitation to Join Terri from

Cloaked Monk



31-Mar-12: Mark 10:32-34, 46-52


32 They were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them; they were amazed, and those who followed were afraid. He took the twelve aside again and began to tell them what was to happen to him, 33 saying, “See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death; then they will hand him over to the Gentiles; 34 they will mock him, and spit upon him, and flog him, and kill him; and after three days he will rise again.”

46 They came to Jericho. As he and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside. 47 When heheard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 Many sternly ordered him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 49 Jesus stood still and said, “Call him here.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take heart; get up, he is calling you.” 50 So throwing off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus. 51 Then Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man said to him, “My teacher, let me see again.” 52 Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way.







“……and The One stopped on His Death-Road to HEAL someone?”





So the friends hummed and bummed along in such altogether joy.

So the friends summed up all the love and light gathered along the way.

So the critters and unfolk and newly-joined ragged one all fee like the boy

Who flapped his ears and hugged his donkey and tugged no more to stray.



“Oh, ye ragged one, ye taggedy-splaggedy one, how ye be strong so long?”

Did one friend, then t’other seek to know of new friend so ragged, so happy.

“Oh,”cried down Crow and Bird and Fly,”did ye miss The One, all strong,

“Stopping in His Death Road to heal and love these rags back to clappy?”

      Sarah, how very gracious is this nomination for the Kreativ Blogger Award. I do not really “do” awards, but I am so very honored by this nomination. Yes, I think there is great hope and joy to be found in our daily trudges, if we only look up and reach out to others as we trudge!

    First so great so many think you worthy of awards Granbee…. you are deserving of them, even though I know you shy away from such things… Me too in a way, still have several pending,
    Second… another great posting with such a message to behold.. We need only see the strength we have within to alter our paths and pains in life.. And if we all reached out a hand to help each other what a wonderful world then… Faith creates its own miracles… if we believe.. and also take that belief deeper into ourselves..
    Hugs my warrior friend xx

      Oh, dear Sue, let us reach out together,beating our prayer drums together, every stumbling and tumbling up and up and up in more and more light! Sue, I simply have no writing time AT ALL to figure out all these awards and all the little mechanisms with which to respond to them in a formal manner. The COMMENTS of you all are what I value and treasure and grow from the most, after all.

    What an awesome message, Granbee! What a Savior! …and while we were yet sinners. With eyes on the cross, Jesus’ heart was on us… and a blind man. Praise the Lord! Thanks for sharing good friend.

      So very wonderful to have you two give such support to this particular message! For me, this particular Lenten devotional guide just shouted at me that I, though, ragged, am HEALED! And He stopped on His death-road for ME! And that cross was for MY SINS and MY SALVATION! Utterly awesome~!

      Oh, Peter, now that I am playing catchup again after all the extra Holy Week and Easter holiday activities, I came across your comment here just at the right time, just when I was feeling a tad overwhelmed by all this online work! Bless you for celebrating with me about the power to push a button and share thoughts all over the world. This is my mandate these days, no matter what!

      Blessings on you this blessed Easter Week in continued celebration of the Resurrection! So pleased to share your tweets,(which may not happen again until Easter Wednesday (a couple of days from now) due to my catching up here in wordpress after all the extra Holy Week and Easter holiday activities!). I just admire your very professional poetry and artwork at your blog!
