2-Mar-12: Romans 4:1-12

. 6 So also David speaks of the blessedness of those to whom God reckons righteousness apart from works:

7 “Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;

8 blessed is the one against whom the Lord will not reckon sin.”

 

“….and why did you throw that old rag over us?”

 

 

All critters and unfolk slumped and flumped all on the peak

All legs and arms and noses and ears and even Old Crookeye

All folded and rolled and tolled over in moan and bone to seek

All dear earned rest in best friend breasts no more toned to cry

 

“Hey, what ho, what hey?  What smothers and covers our many colors?”

“Hey, what now, what bow did drop this one cover over us?”

“Rest now, peace now, sweet now of new found right with no dolors”

“Rest now, peace now, sweet now,” did chirrup winged ones in shush.

EIGHTH WEEK FRIDAY: KICK UP THE HEELS OF OLD SHOES


OLD SHOES DANCE BEST

 

KICK UP YOUR HEELS AT  YESTERDAY’S NEWS

KICK UP YOUR TOES AT  BEHOLDEN VIEWS

KICK UP YOUR LOINS AT  A MISTAKEN MUSE

KICK UP YOUR ELBOWS AT  THE WRONG CRUISE

 

STOMP YOUR FEET IN A TWO-STEP OF YAHOO

SLAP YOUR KNEES IN A BANTER OF BALLYHOO

TAP YOUR FINGERS IN A SYNCO OF BOO-HOO

SNAP YOUR HEAD BACK IN A NOD TO YOUR NEW WOO-WOO

 

SHUFFLE FAST  TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR OWN SCORE

TWIST BACK INTO THE MIDDLE OF THAT GREAT WIDE FLOOR

WIGGLE AND WAGGLE THE OLD SPARE TIRE FOR MORE AND MORE

LIE FLAT  BREATHE FAT  MAKE LIKE A MAT  IN THE DISCOUNT STORE

 

KICKING AND TAPPING AND WIGGLING MAKE LYING DOWN

A TRUE BLESSING ONLY GAINED BY A CLOWN

KICKING UP THE HEELS OF OLD SHOES

INVITES ANOTHER JIG WITH THE NEW MUSE.

 

May you all get old enough to be young at heart!

 

FOURTH WEEK WEDNESDAY: REST FOR THE SOUL


This will be a VERY short post today, as I desperately needed a “time-out” earlier today.  After a visit with my pals at my local health food store, Herbal Solutions, and purchasing 6 ounces of tumeric for extra seasoning and old-fashioned joints-aching-in-the cold pain relief, here’s what I have to offer right now before my posting time is up for today (other worthy activities calling soonest!):

Tumey red powder from India stinging my nose

Sliding under the seat to surprise my fatigue

Riding with the have-tos of the morning

And the should-bes of the evening.

 

About-to-explode psyche whispering all day

To gain admittance to the respectables

So glad to sneeze and bless me

Whizzing past the bank of the church ladies.

 

See you tomorrow, friends.  I am now refreshed.
