Merlin’s Lament

Image result for Merlin and the tree

And in the end what does it matter?

All the mists of Avalon?

All the mysteries covered in wode?

All the shapes I’ve shifted to make the kings come home?

 

And in the end what does it matter?

I’ve spoken from the shadows.

I’ve answered my fate and said my prayers.

I’ve built this Camelot behind the throne.

 

And in the end what does it matter?

Has Morganna really gone?

Has Arthur sailed the Way?

Has Nimue ever loved me alone?

 

And in the end what does it matter?

I’ve still met the eschatos

I’ve become the tree.

I’ve let the magic drain from my bones.

Once again I am a few days late to the game of Sharing My World, but better late than never!

QUESTIONS:

What’s the most ironic thing you’ve ever witnessed?

People saying they believe in God and then acting like He doesn’t exist.

Let’s talk turkey.  Pro or con?   If pro, which part do you enjoy most?  Is it for Thanksgiving (American Style any way) only?

I am a big pro turkey man, but truth be told the only time I have it is at American Thanksgiving (Christmas is lasagna).  Also I am not so big a fan of the stuff that I will pay all outdoors for it. Here in America turkey is generally an affordable meat. My sister lives in The Netherlands and there are no turkeys there so the only way to get one is to import it. Last year her friend( who is also American) imported one at the cost of $200.00 American! Turkey is just not that important that I will give up a month’s car payment for it.

When I make the turkey I prefer white meat.

If you’d like, share one thing you wish you’d said to someone else, but now you’ll never have the chance.

Make sure your heart is right with God before you go.

What odd smell do you really enjoy?

I love the smell of face powder. It reminds me of my grandmother.

I am so thankful to be supported by a great group of music ministers here at our church who work so hard to make a joyful noise before the Lord each week.

Morning Direction From Scripture 11-14-18

img_20180805_084731_083-356734784.jpg

For he will deliver the needy who cry out,
    the afflicted who have no one to help.
13 He will take pity on the weak and the needy
    and save the needy from death.
14 He will rescue them from oppression and violence,
    for precious is their blood in his sight.

15 Long may he live!
    May gold from Sheba be given him.
May people ever pray for him
    and bless him all day long.
16 May grain abound throughout the land;
    on the tops of the hills may it sway.
May the crops flourish like Lebanon
    and thrive[c] like the grass of the field.
17 May his name endure forever;
    may it continue as long as the sun.

Then all nations will be blessed through him,[d]
    and they will call him blessed.

18 Praise be to the Lord God, the God of Israel,
    who alone does marvelous deeds.
19 Praise be to his glorious name forever;
    may the whole earth be filled with his glory.
Amen and Amen.

20 This concludes the prayers of David son of Jesse. Psalm 72: 12-20

Explain your understanding of “glory”.
