1-Apr-12: Philippians 2:5-11

 

5 Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,

6 who, though he was in the form of God,

did not regard equality with God

as something to be exploited,

7 but emptied himself,

taking the form of a slave,

being born in human likeness.

And being found in human form,

8 he humbled himself

and became obedient to the point of death—

even death on a cross.

9 Therefore God also highly exalted him

and gave him the name

that is above every name,

10 so that at the name of Jesus

every knee should bend,

in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

11 and every tongue should confess

that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“……and you say we must bow down in order to be higher?”

 

 

 

So friends all circled round to sup and sip and dup and dip all fusty and dusty.

So critters and unfolksies sat and plopped and popped berries and nuts alike.

When just from out a big cracked rock crawled the ragged one all musty.

“Oh, kneel with me, serve with me, lower ye selves with me such lowly tyke.”

 

 

“What keens ye, what means ye, now heal-led crawler so smalling?

“We ‘uns ready to serve, ready to help, we need not go lower–no, no!”

“Ah, but do ye not know,”cried Raggedy”, that we must be like Him in calling!”

“We must kneel and serve all bowed down,iffen we be raised High with Him to glow!”

 

“………….and you say you didn’t know HE was flying above you?”

10-Mar-12: Mark 9:2-8

 

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them,

3 and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them.

4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus.

5 Then Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”

6 He did not know what to say, for they were terrified.

7 Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, “This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!”

8 Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus.

 

 

 

 

 

“………….and you say you didn’t know HE was flying above you?”

 

 

 

Once wounded, now bounded and hugged and bugged to be more care-ful, YES!

Old Spottedy Goat lay so contenteddy, so blessedy, in the lap of that healing Stumpy, WHEE!

Littley Ol’ Lamby hopped and skipped all about, never mind any rocks, so much in glee o’er passing a test!

All friends huddling ’round, waiting and stating their joy o’er Spottey, e’en Ol’ Floppy Ears in glee!

 

 

With sudden rush of wind and blazing light, e’en unto Glory, all friends fell down on their faces,

All friends grabbed and reached and ne’er unto preached all wonders and visions of HIM on high!

“What means ye so tumbled, mumbled about on ye faces, ye dear critters o’ mine?” cawed Old Crow.

“Why, hush ye cawing, ye old blackey !  Did not not see three on high,come to bless? Oh, my!”
