VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: The White Lily and The Ship!






Her Advent came by Rape!
Her?  Her Mother Did Hate!
She Did Not Know Her Ultimate Fate
But
Thankfully, Each day
No Matter How Little or Late
Her Mother Fed Her
And
She Gratefully Ate!

She Spoke of A Life
Sorely Lacking In Love!
She Did Not Cry Nor Lament
For The Unloving Mother 
Taught Her of 
The Living Holy God's Eternal Love!

Strange -  This Combination!
The Unloving 
Teaching 
The Unloved of 
God's Love
But
This Jagged Circle Pointed
To Jesus Christ ... and His Eternal Love
And
Heavenly Rest Up Above!

In The Midst of The Muck
That Man Calls His Life
Is A Lily of Such Beauty
That One Asks: "How Come?!"
For Muck is Really Muddy
And
Muddy Water Is Really Unclean
Yet 

"Lily,  Oh,  Lily
Thy White Is Beautifully Pristine!"



The Bullied
The Bothered
The Hapless Lacking Hope
All Know That  - Even in War
White is The Eternal Symbol for Hope
And 
All That Walk Under That Banner So Clean
Know 
With A Certainly
That Their Freedom Is Keenly Seen!

Jesus Christ IS The White Lily!
The Visible Symbol for Hope!
Looking Unto Jesus
Sinner 
Savage
All Through Jesus Will Cope
With The "Accident"
Called Birth
The Circumstance 
Called Living Life 
And
The Situations in Daily Living's Strife!

All Will Survive Their "Humiliations"
IF ...
IF ... Jesus Christ 
IS
The Leader of Their Life!

Rapes!
Denigrations!
Whoredoms 
And
Idolatries!
All Will be Fixed
By Faith in The White Lily
Who Is
The Bright and
Morning Star
Who Left The Kingdom of His Light
To Bring Give Hope
To a Fallen People
On a Far Distant Shore
Where Life is Oft' Bogged Down
Where Friendship is Oft' Silver-Coined Death
Where Creatures Killed Creator
Where Seeking Hungry Souls Can Be Filled
Where The Fullness of Time was Fulfilled
Where Time Himself called "Time!"
Where The Sacrifice of Innocent for Guilty
Was Executed by The Guilty of Gross Sin!
BUT
Where, Also 
Despite The Downside Of Denials
There is The Upside 
The Upside Called Hope!

There Is Hope for 
All Who Believe
That That White Lily
Standing Out Over 
In The Dirty Dirt
IS
The Answer
The Means Whereby
Sinking Ships 
Overladen 
Anchored Heavily By Sin
Can By The Belief and Faith Offering
Rise Up and Gallant Float!

Only The Eternal Word
Can
Cause 
A White Lily 
to 
Emerge 
From 
Bilge Water!

Trust Him!

When We Let Him
He Will Make Us White, Too!
