The Parable Of The “Landlocked Lighthouses.”

There once was a state
In the great ‘nited states
That bordered no ocean or seas…

… but that state had a shore…

…that contained so much more…

…than his salty dog brothers could seize.

He nurtured and nested
And tossed and he tested
Those venturesome souls that dared venture…

…on his great ‘spanse of water…

…they’d teeter and totter…

…and utter cries worthy of censure.

When all seemed too ‘willder’
And fear seemed too ‘fillder’
‘Dare hearts’ torn asunder with thunder…

…and flashes of lightning…

…blurred visions of tightening…

…there yet was a flicker of wonder.

All ’round solid shores
There were windows and doors
Showering flashes of crystalline  clarity…

… their flames turned incessant…

…some oiled some candescant…

…lighting ways homeward with charity.

Fact

Michigan borders no oceans…

…but…

… has more       lighthouses       than any other state… *

St. Joseph Lights

Word

“Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately.”

Luke 12:35-36 NKJV

Michigan lighthouses.

One thought on “The Parable Of The “Landlocked Lighthouses.”

    January 27, 2012
    was a turning point in time for me.
    In the processing of “wildernessness”
    I heard God say,
    (I don’t mean I heard a voice,)
    “There are no categories in a wilderness”.
    I will continue to ponder this in my heart.
    As a first step in this direction I removed all categories but one.
    The one category standing
    within “Making Rent On The Internet”
    is “Journey”.
    Those of you close to me during …
    the time period encompassed by …
    Jan 27, 2012
    and
    February 1, 2012
    know that those few days was a “Birthday Gift”
    and was a significant “Round TUIT” for me.
    I will clean up the other previous blog posts
    as my agenda allows. GG
