16-Mar-12: Ephesians 1:7-14

7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace

8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and insight

9 he has made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he set forth in Christ,

10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to gather up all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

 

 

 

 

“……..and you say we are now BROTHERS and SISTERS, no matter our fur or skin?”

 

 

 

 

“So now we go on?  Now we climb up again to all those many lights?”

So did all friends, all critters, all folksey-wolkseys quire of Old Crow.

“Oh, thou creeping crawlers and stompy marchers, first take some bites.”

So did Old Crow with Ugly Bird squawk down at friends below.

 

“Yes, help your brothers, help your sisters, gather and snip berried seeds.”

“What, what mean ye, Old Cawkers?  We all furry-skurry so different, ye know!”

“What, what mean ye, High Squawkers?  We not kin, we not kin in creeds!”

“Yes, yes, oh tawky-mawky ones!  Ye be all kin by sign of Babe,washing of light-bow!”

28-Feb-12: 1 Peter 3:8-18a

8 Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind.

9 Do not repay evil for evil or abuse for abuse; but, on the contrary, repay with a blessing. It is for this that you were called—that you might inherit a blessing.

 

 

“….and I thought you and Ugly Bird and Old Crow were mad at me!”

 

Trampling and grampling and nibbling and scribbling off in the rocks

Spotted Goat snortling and courtling the taggly ends of our crew

Wiggling eye under knotty forehead uppsy-downsy-allaroundsy pocks

Spotted Goat all trembley-bimbley under wings upahead in chatter much ado.

 

“Come up here, come up front, come up to brighter light,”cawed Old Crow.

“Come up now, come up thou, come up to bow in light,” chirped Ugly Bird.

“Come see, come saw, come bee, come baw in all glow,” whistled Dragonfly.

“OH!OH! OH!  You are not mad at my horns, my stink, my jaw? OH,JOY!” leaped Spotted Goat.

—-and now a brighter light through no spots

……..and now I see the brighter light because I first saw my own dark spots!”

**********************************************************************

The friends pulled and strained and stained and mulled

Up and up and up and barely one more dust mote trulled

Then stumbling over blots and mots and lots of dark spots

They bumped ‘gainst that bush back,that Shrub Woman’s clots.

 

“Tootle-roo!  Tootle-ray! I trump and plump the air with bush nose!”

“Scootle here, scootle here, all ye who wouldst come to blows!”

“So bright a light through my twigs I find!”

“So bright a light— ’cause dark spots scraped and left behind.
