1-Mar-12: Romans 3:21-31

23 since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; 24 they are now justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put forward as a sacrifice of atonement by his blood, effective through faith. He did this to show his righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over the sins previously committed; 26 it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies the one who has faith in Jesus.


“…..and you said all those rules would eliminate me!”

Old Stump Woman clumped and bumped and strumped her BushNose

Into every crack and pit along the way in all those rocks and all those feet

Sticking that BushNose everywhere but ahead, in all spots signs told “NO!s”

Old Stump Woman clumped faster,all the more smellings all the more fleet.



Old Stump Woman kicked down “NO!” signs, pushed over “DON’T” marks

All the while huffing to get past other legs and other pegs and break in line

Til Stump Woman heard a cry above and smelled Ugly Bird calling in larks

Til Stump Woman sniffed tear at being so crude and fell on knees at gift so fine.
