30-Mar-12: Philippians 2:12-18

12 Therefore, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed me, not only in my presence, but much more now in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

14 Do all things without murmuring and arguing, 15 so that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, in which you shine like stars in the world. 16 It is by your holding fast to the word of life that I can boast on the day of Christ that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. 17 But even if I am being poured out as a libation over the sacrifice and the offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you— 18 and in the same way you also must be glad and rejoice with me.







“……and you say if we stop arguing, we can shine brighter?”




So now friends be climbin’ high and sparkin’ sigh after sigh.

So now critters be rockin’ and rollin’ ’round rock and rill.

So now unfolk be leaning’ and keenin’ all up and up so high.

So now all questers be pesters for Crow to give ’em a thrill.




“Why ye not happy to be so sappy with life on this hill?

“Why ye not diggin’ down into critter heart for joy of this trip?”

“Why ye dim your life on this path with so much murmur to kill

“The new light, the new stars, right out of your eyes to slip?”



“Oh, Crow, oh Bird, oh Blythy-fly, all winged ones up there!”

“Ye beesies so righties when ye tellsies us of so wrongelly words.

“Oh, guiding wings, flap and dap down more such wiselings to bear

“Alway and e’er more in smilin’ face so our lightsies not be curds.”
