FREEDOM: The Shopping Spree!





I Was Invited To Free-Shop
And Thought To Myself:

Why Not?!

So I Took The Gee Train
To Olde Broadway
AND
Got Off 
At The Last Stop!

I Proceeded To Goode Time's Squared
AND
Joyously Went Wild
AND
For Things Off De Chaine
Hungry
I Shopped Quite A Lot
For A Long While!

Things Were Free
At The Penny Store
AND
At Know Scents
For Two Pounds
Not Dollars And No Cents
I Purchase Three Thrills
AND
Got Four Unwitting Spills
AND
Two Skinned Knees
For Free!

I Got A Giant Bottle Of Own-Way
AND
I Scored A Decanter Of Pay-For-Play
AND
I Had An All-You-Can-Eat
Now And Later Lunch
At Cheap Cash Chews And Forays!

I Danced Up A Storm
At Pop Rocks
AND
Bust A Rhyme
At Speak As Your Heart Is Inclined
Where After
I Fell To The Floor
Bumping My Head
Good And Hard
For Sure At
Go Low Low
AND
Score!

By The End Of My Shopping Spree
I Could Hardly Breathe
For
The Booty I Carried
Had Me Burdened For Sure
BUT
I Had Enjoyed The Excursion
AND
On The Customer Experience Survey
I Ticked Off That I Would Highly Recommend It
AND
Do It Myself Again
At Least
A Couple Couple Times More!

Well ...

Let Me Tell You
On The Way 
To Go Back To My Home
First ... I Couldn't Find The Gee Train
AND
When I Did
It Was Running On The See Line
AND
My Entrance Led Me To The Exit
For All The Common Core
AND
It Butted
AND
Bounded
On Wide Streets Weirdly Called
Hamster Wheel
AND
Perpetual Revolving Door!

By Now ...

I Was Tired
AND
Worried To Boot
AND
When I Reached Rabbit Warren
I Cried Out:

Oh,  Shoot!

For
A Distant Memory
Was Coming To The Fore
AND
At Its Explosion
I Knew I Was In Trouble For Real
For There Was For Me
At This Trying Time
Not A Single Visible
Open Door
AND
I  Became Trembly
AND
Turned Deathly Deathly Pale!

Oh, How I Did Hurt!
My Feet Felt Fat In Thin Man Shoes!
My Sore Eyes Burned Like I Was Salt-Water Swimming!
My Head Was Fair Spinning!
My Back Felt Ready To Break!
AND
My Heart In Fear Was Tripping
AND
My Hands Heavy
Were Surely Scraping The Floor
AND
My Mind In Total Turmoil
Startled
At The Harsh Sound
Of The Quiet Voice
Which
Oh, So Gently Said:

Lose That Load
Or You Will Be Forever Lost!

Who Are You?
Can You Help Me?
I Boarded The Wrong Train, I Think
AND
This Journey Is Proving
In My Nostrils 
To Be A Rank Stench!

I Want To Go Back
To The Beginning!
My Train Was On The Wrong Track
And I Feel Like I Am
Under Attack!

Dear One,
Calm Your Self!
Say A Prayer!
And Hear
And Do
Everything That I Say:

Lose The Load!
It Is Useless
For With It
You Will Never Get To Go Where
There Is Peace At Home!

Tell The Savior You Are Sorry
And Give Unto Him This Worry
And In His Great Compassion
He Will You Safely Carry!

Believe
And In Faith
Walk To The
The-Free Shop
Wherein You Will Find
Blessed Merchandise
From Him Who Is Ever Kind!

There Is

  • Quiet Gentle Spirit
  • Wisdom
  • Knowledge
  • Understanding
  • Truth
  • Light And Life
  • Hope
  • Help And Healing
  • Strength For The Strife!


There's Conviction

  • Faith For The Day
  • Grace For To Stand
  • Strength For Life's Journeys
  • Oh Taste And See The Son Of Man
  • On The Promises Of God You Will Stand!

And There Are
Blessings 
And
Hid Treasure
When You Walk The Narrow Way
In Obedience
Unto Salvation
And
The Master Is
Just A Prayer Away!

Do You Understand What I Am Saying?

Yes! Yes,  I DO!

Then, Walk Straight Ahead!
Do Not Look Right!
Do Not Look Left!
And
No Matter What Happens Around You
Don't Look Back!
Look Assuredly Ahead!

The Way Is Not Easy
And 
To Arrive Safely
You Must Take The Yoke Easy 
And 
Carry The Burden Light!

You Must Trust The Master
Even When You Can't Trace Him!
You Must Believe And Walk
Knowing That He Will Finish What In You He Started
And
That He Will Carry You Safely
All The Way Home
For
With His Blood And Body
He Purchased 
Precious Redemption
For His Beloved
And
That Means You!

Walk Wise!
Do Good!
Trust!
Obey!
And 
Pray!

There Is No Self In Salvation
For
With It Embraced
You Will Never See
The Everlasting Day!

Thank You!
Bless You!

Was All I Could Say!
I Then Turned Away 
AND
Toward The Savior
Started Walking
AND
I Prayed! How I Prayed!

The Way Is Not Easy
For
Temptations Are Rife
BUT
God's Great Grace Is Every Ready
As I Walk Toward Eternal Life!

Soon The Day Will Be Ended!
Soon Life's Strife Will Be O'er!
Soon The Trumpet Will Be Sounded
AND
By God's Grace
With Endurance
Soon I Will
With All Right
Walk Through
Heaven's Gate Door
Having Overcome
Sin And Satan
In What Was A Blistering Fight!


If Christianity
Was A
Cake-Walk
Life
Would Be Filled 
With
Sweet Treats
And
Christians
Would Have Cavities
Not
Calluses
And
Would Hear Choruses
Not Curses!!
