Trees
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Joyce Kilmer
One of my favorite poems as a child...I know...I know...why would I post a poem when people are farting and sniffing.
I don't know...I think I was trying to rid my mind of that vision...replace it with a tree.
Trees...oak trees...cedar trees...Mimosa trees...are tied to some of my best childhood memories. They offered shelter...a haven...as if they wrapped their branches around you. Great hiding places too!
Tis no known cure to mankind for that type of hoof and mouth disease.

Some people find a spot in the road that suits them and settle down.
Others sit beside the road waiting for the bus to stop and pick them up.
Then there are those that see a path that veers off to the side and decide to go that path less taken. Sometimes...that is where they find those gems along the way.
Do all paths make it to the end...maybe not...but most have a final destination.
Maybe the most important question is...are we all meant to travel the same path. I don't really think so...I think that it is more about traveling the right path...the one that is laid out in front of us.
There's more...but I got to go finish my workout before I throw in the towel!
Well get up and go. Make sure that towel is soaked with perspiration before you throw it in. LOL

Good post, Annie.

" For John came and began to baptise men in the desert, proclaiming baptism as the mark of a complete change of heart and of the forgiveness of sins."

Very Jewish !

What I find fascinating is that John used the Jordan River. The holiest flowing water (Mikvah) in the Levant to do so.

From the Jewish Encyclopedia:

"For the purpose of actual or ritual purification, ablutions or washings form an important feature of the Jewish religious ceremonial. Judaism is in thorough accord with the proverb, "Cleanliness is next to godliness" (see Mishnah, So&#7789;ah, ix. 15): indeed, it goes further; for it holds practically that cleanliness is godliness itself. There are three kinds of Ablution recognized in Biblical and rabbinical law:(1) Washing of the hands,(2) washing of the hands and feet, and (3) immersion of the whole body in water."

Many of us probably feel as I do ...Ignore, life is too short.
Time here might be limited for some and they would rather spend their time corresponding with others.
If you want to spend your time with shrink that is your biz ...but no one here is required too, nor are they less because they chose not to.

Interesting... thanks.

I ran across something similar but it was coming from a pagan-rite perspective... it pretty much said the same thing as in your first sentence and that The Jewish authorities had sent reps to figure out who gave him the authority to do this particular baptism... they probaly would've stopped him at some point but they were afraid of the people because John was popular with them.

Thanks Serah... I do hope our beloved Judy gets the name that she wants though... Polaris 2000... Interestingly, I was next to a truck early this morning that said North Star Logistics. I guess it caught my attention because of the recent name discussions.

this makes sense to you, Serah???

so if i said "i'd like to kick you in the nutz" it can also mean "that's a wonderful aftershave you're wearing"???

The Jerusalem Priests were careful to suppress any sect that claimed that the Temple was not required for worship. It is the main reason they constantly condemned the Samaritans.

It is very likely why the Temple Priesthood wanted Jesus dead as well.

Concerning Jesus allowing John to baptize Him even though Jesus was of a higher rank, so to speak... same here... I've thought of that as well.

I don't know the exact answer to the question yet but simply dared to ask it a an open-ended question.

My first thought is that Jesus was showing "A do as I do and not just as I say" type of leadership. I'm sure there is more to it though.
