VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: CHRISTIAN: - Tofu!





A Week Ago Last Tuesday
I Met A Good Christian!
He Said That His Name Is Tofu!
Thyme And Parsley Were His Coverings
AND
Powdered Seasonings Were His Shoes!

Three Days Later
I Saw A Good Christian!
He Said That I Knew Him! - His Name Was Tofu!
He Looked Different!
Barbecue Sauce Was His Covering!
AND
Pepper Flakes And Garlic Were His Shoes!

Hmmmm ...!

Today
I Met Up With A Good Christian
Calling Himself ... You Guessed It
Tofu!
AND
I Became A Bit Perplexed
For
His Clothing ... Again
Was New!

I Wondered ...
Is This A Chameleon?!

Clothed In
Potatoes Carrots
Sweet Pepper Thyme Onion
Scallions
Apple Cider Vinegar
Garlic Clove
Paprika
Hot Pepper Sauce
His Clothing Was Best Called A Melange!
His Fragrance Was Quite Aromatic
BUT
Fresh Thyme Sticks Were Between His Toes!
He Was Not Wearing Any Shoes!

I Asked:
Christian? Who Are You?

He Said: 
I Am Just Bland Tofu!

I Replied:
Tofu? Who Are You?
You Seem To Roll With The Times!

He Said:
Of Course!
I'm Bland By Myself
BUT
Put Me With Flavor-Full
AND
I Absorb Their Contents!
I Adapt To My Surroundings
So
My Host Is With Me
Ever Content!

I Gasped!
My Eyes Flared!
My Ears Burned!
My Stomach Churned!
I Closed My Eyes!
I Groaned
AND
I Shook My Head!

Tofu!
Don't You Know Whose You Are?!
Have You No Head?

Not Really!
You See
I Am A Pale Crushed-Pea Block
Organic 'Tis True - That Makes Me Special
But
I Am Not Much Of A Chew
Until
Someone Squeezes My Guts
And All The Water Comes Out
And They Slice Me
And They Dice Me
And They Sear Me On A Hot Dry Pan
Until A Tan On Me Sides Show Through!
I Don't Like It When They Do That
So
When They Put Me With Nice Things
I Hurriedly Grab Hold
So That Someone Would Take Me In
Laying Me Out On Plate
Or
In A Bowl!

But ...

Tofu!
You Are A Christian!
You Belong To The One!
The Creator Of The Aromatics
So
You Should Not Be Running Around
With Sriracha And Ground Black Pepper Corns!

The Master Has Called You!
Be Wise
AND
Accept The Offered Place
For It Comes With Mercy's Clothing
AND
Love
Manufactured By Available Grace!
You Get An Infusion Of Hope
AND
Oil Of The Holy Spirit
AND
You Get Influenced By Holy Angels
To Walk In The Truth
Spreading Light!

Really!? Truly?!

Yes!
Did You Not Know?

No!
I Though I Had To Act
According To My Nature
AND
Run With Whomever
Invited Me With Them To Go!

No, Tofu! No!
You May Have Been Bland Tofu - A Christian
But Now
You ... REBORN!
You Are
Last Name: CHRISTIAN
First Name: Tofu

Wear Your Last Name Proudly!
Respond To Christian Loudly!
Speak What The Master Gave To You -
It Is Your Reborn Birth-Right!
AND
Dismiss All Those Hangers-On
AND
Live Right 
In God's Eyesight!

If You Are Going To Be Eaten
Make Sure That Whoever Eats You
Knows
You True Flavor's Taste!
Absorb The Good
AND
Perfect Gift Of Blessings Of 
The Master
AND
Leave The World On A High Note
Making All Regret
That There Is No More Of You Left
For Another Sweet Mouth Taste!

Take The Grace!
Don't Be A Tasteless Disgrace!

Thanks For The Tip!
Time To Turn Me!
Give Me A Gentle Flip!

Tofuuu!
