“……and what is that you say, Brother Greg, about these critters?”


 

“……and what is that you say, Brother Greg, about these critters?”

Dear Friends, this morning I received such a wonderful email from one of our fellow blogging friends, that I wanted to share it on this post!

Tomorrow, I will be replying from the other side of our critters’ pathway back to Brother Greg (known to many of you as writinggomer!)

Here is  the e-mail:

Hi Rose,

You can do whatever your heart desires with this. This popped into my head last night in the shower!

Just a silly little diddy…

 

If ever there was a critter, named Jitters

For you see, there really was a critter named Jitters.

Jitters enjoys a good romp and a stomp

Never able to be still, always hustling, busseling, moving along

Jitters climbed and crawled, in and out, over and through

Have you met a critter named Jitters?

He’s quite real you know

Jitters lives with the critters

Critters that live at granbee’s house

Over the river and through the woods

It’s off to granbee’s house we go

Romp and stomp through the woods

Walk and talk down the trail

The trail of the One, the One I say

The critters know the way, Jitters in tow

Off on an adventure, an adventure today

The One, we must praise Him

The One we must follow Him

The critters and Jitters, off on a run

A run in the sun, to see the Son

Do you know Jitters, who follows along side the critters?

Do you know the One

The One they seek

The critters know the way

The most excellent way

Come along on the way, the journey begins for you today

With Jitters and critters, and all manner of folk

To see the One, the only One

 

 

Remember, dear friends:  tomorrow a post from the view from the other side of the trail!  Restock your backpacks!

      Jitters does indeed want to keep on dancing and dancing and dancing! Wonderful ideas of yours in this comment, Margaret! Thank you so very much!

    I agree with Cat. So, I’ll pack my bags for the new excursion, along with a sackful of rocks in case I have to chunk’em to keep somebody in line. You know, there are always one or two who act up in the bunch.

    • granbee
      Apr 27, 2012 @ 02:04:54

      Tots, pack up the rocks and bring Bernice along, too, okay; to help keep Jitters in line! You have captured much of the spirit of this stumbling, bumbling critterly journey, dear girl!

As granbee would say we are all blessed and have the words given to us!! I am looking forward to granbee’s answer to your ditty! be well and happy! xx:)

    Rose, thanks so much for sharing this delightful addition of Greg’s. It is simply charming and musical in its flow, rhyme and of course, the path is most excellent for Jitters and Granbee’s critters! Greg, I haven’t met you, yet, but will visit you soon! Thanks again for sharing, Rose! xo

      Yes, Christine, Greg certainly provided us with another valuable addition to our critterly troupe in the personnae of Jitters! No doubt, Greg’s lines brought to mind more than one person in your life, as it did to my mind!

      And because of Mr. Jitters and his healing dance, granbee just got two new followers! Hope your blog is benefitting, as well! (One of my intentions in sharing your email, you know!) Anyway, I will be over at your blog soon, in a few minutes, okay? I resolved to take more time with each blog I follow, and so only get around to everyone about every 3 days, most weeks now!

    I love this…and see how your word fun and profundity are catching and blessing! I have a Jitters at my house…a little black and slightly white kitty called Darcy…but, oh, I do love him!

    • granbee
      May 04, 2012 @ 04:31:51

      Your Jitters, Darcy the Black and White, would no doubt lick the injured girls’ wounds and wave his tale and entice that little girl to dance with him! Greg’s “Jitters” continues to inspired us, doesn’t he? Bless you for visiting today and sharing your love of Darcy!
