He is like
a tree
planted
by streams of water
that yeilds
its fruit
in its season
and its leaf
does not wither.
[Psalms 1:3]
*********************
(Fiesty kick
in mother's side.)
"PAPA!"

(DELIGHTED SMILE!)
"I am Here,
little one."

"PAPA!
PAPA!"

"Yes,
My PRECIOUS?"

"I LOVE YOU,
PAPA!"

[DELIGHTED CHUCKLE!]
"Yes,
My little precious.
And, I love you!"

"PAPA?
Am I being BORN?"

[DELIGHTED NOD.]
"Yes,
My beloved!"

(Another feisty kick.)
"WHY,
PAPA?"

"I chose you,
to do one little
thing,
for Me."

(Push tiny thumb,
stubbornly,
into tiny mouth.)
"What's THAT?"

"To shake your head,
with conviction."

"What's THAT,
PAPA?"

"Just remember;
when I say so,
I want you
to
shake your head,
very firmly."
[WISE NOD.]
And,
I
will do
the rest."

"What's 'FIRMLY',
MEAN.......
PAPA?"

[BURST OUT LAUGHING!]
"When I command
you to do so,
child,
you will know!"

(Another,
even feistier,
kick!)
"OKAY, PAPA!
WHATEVER YOU SAY!"

[CHUCKLE!]
[GENTLE KISS.]
"I love you,
more than you will
ever know,
My little one."

"And, I love
YOU, PAPA!"

[JOYFUL SMILE!]
"Are you READY?"

(Stubborn kick!)
"You BET!"

[LOVING GAZE.]
[SMILE.]
[PAUSE.]
"Then,
let's go."


(Rosa Louise Parks
is born in Tuskegee, Alabama,
on February 4, 1913.)
************************
And,
God said
let there be light,
and there was light.
[Genesis 1:3]

"Very firmly. . . " Oh, to have been a fly on the window of that bus! What a wonderful piece, Julie! I love the way you use your inimitable dialogue with God to develop the riddle, then hit the nail with Rosa's birth stats at the end. I just had to go back and savor it again. It's been said that some saints are prepared all their lives for just one obedient act of a moment, which will spark a movement of God. . . Life would be so much simpler if we just lived moment to moment, listening for the voice of the Shepherd to lead us.
