“……and we so hungry now are full”


“……and we so hungry now are full”

Comes Spottedy Goat and Littley Lamb, so draggely

in finding through singing and dancing all friends in far

distances ne’er foreseen ‘fore meetin’ th’ Babe so spraggley

tellin’ of questin’ and Light-n’ing for to seek without bar.



Comes Old Crookeye and Sheepsey Dog and Croakey

all stumbly and bumbly and hoppey and boppey to enter New Way

Comes Turtley and FloppyEared boy and donkey so stokey

with strange airs and spare dews and scarce grains for the day.



“Aye, aye, ye critters and unfolk,ye brothers and sisters so rare:

“Now be ye hunger so, thirst so for right true-blue berry and fruit,”

Crooned down Ol’ Crow from above New Trailin’ Way so fair.

“Now ye needs put eye and nose and ear to findin’ food w’out soot.”



“Oh, oh, dear Crow and Ugly Bird, we’uns so weak, so starved a’fore New Way,”

groaned all critterly friends in floppin’ and boppin’ and stoppin’ on path.

“Oh,  no, my no, all ye wingedy ones up high point to no food, no tray

of feedin’ such seekin’ groundlings just as we come to True Way in bath.”



For, lo, the critters did lay all about on high rocks o’er falls so pure and clear

Yet showing no vines or trees, neither fruit nor nut nor crust of ol’ fish.

“Oh, oh, woe, woe we bee’uns w’out food for bodies all stretched to get here;

“Oh, weesie beesie all knackered and knockered w’out hope of a dish.”



“Wait, wait, halt, halt, ye moanin’ groanin’ critters down there,”did call Ol’ Crow.

“Spot ye now, squint ye now, hear ye now, yon Bluesey divin’ in rushin’ river.

“Stand tall, ye now blessed critters, for ye soon be feed with Livin’ Bread down low.

“Stretch out ye hands and touch a New Bluesey, Now Rainbow Fly, w’ promisen quiver.”





“……and are you SURE we need to throw this old scroll away?”

2-Apr-12: Hebrews 9:11-15


11 But when Christ came as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation), 12 he entered once for all into the Holy Place, not with the blood of goats and calves, but with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls, with the sprinkling of the ashes of a heifer, sanctifies those who have been defiled so that their flesh is purified, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to worship the living God!

15 For this reason he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, because a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions under the first covenant.








“……and are you SURE we need to throw this old scroll away?”




Now and again and over again did critters mull and skull o’er the lessons of Crow

and Bird and Fly and Raggedy One and all critters so marked and sparked by this quest.

Now and again, then again did one critter hum to the other about what to stow

and what to toss over the crested side of trip and struggle and buggle calling for their best.


“Oh, lookee, lookee, ye blinding bats of critters, what be this, what see this old skin?”

“Oh, kick that ol’ skin o’er the side, ye wonderin’ folk,” called down Ugly Bird.

“Oh, no more need for such an ol’ scroll,” agreed Old Raggedy,”‘Tis no bettern tin!”

Agreed Old Crow:”Ye have new scroll, new plan, new print for life bought by Living Word.”

“……and did you say WE are the Light’s house?”

19-Mar-12: Hebrews 3:1-6

3 Therefore, brothers and sisters, holy partners in a heavenly calling, consider that Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, 2 was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses also “was faithful in all God’s house.” 3 Yet Jesus is worthy of more glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself. 4 (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.) 5 Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, to testify to the things that would be spoken later. 6 Christ, however, was faithful over God’s house as a son, and we are his house if we hold firm the confidence and the pride that belong to hope.





“……and did you say WE are the Light’s house?”




“So merrily, terrily, ferrily we skip along, trip along, hop along,”

all friends hummed and buzzed and rumbled and tumbled on their way.

“So left behind, so kind, in mind o’ Ol’ MosesMan partin’ that water with tong.”

“Yet Crow says we scuttering after One so much more in charge, oh Hi, oh Hey!”



Soon cawed Old Crow, with chirping from Ugly Bird: “Settle ye, steady ye, hoppy ones.”

“Calm ye, troll ye for long day ahead!  Still ye, bill ye not this Ol’Bird for telling ye true!”

“What mean ye, calm us lighted ones, us blessed ones, us questing merry ones?”

“Why, I calm ye, steady ye, for ye must near the day when ye be His house so true-blue!”
