Hats off, for an absolutely wonderful view of "Cross" from a very unique perspective. You mixed the "Cross" with servanthood and destiny. As Christ laid down His life, Hussopos laid down his at Jesus feet. May we know and understand if hyssop had such a wonderful purpose, how much more do we. Embrace the cross.

My favorite lines, (as if I could pick)

Ever so gently, Hussopos caressed the lips of the Spotless Lamb whose blood soaked the crude wooden cross. What an honor bestowed on this chosen one!

Drops of precious blood mingled with his moistened blooms as he was lowered away from the Beloved Sacrifice and carelessly discarded.
Blessings Brenda

Now this was worth finding, Jan. Excellent job. Way to look into the three dimensional "box" of the topic and take me/the reader, to place, a perspective, I never would have seen if not for you. Great story telling and writing to match. Very impressive!!!! This one is a keeper. God bless.

OK, I can't even believe I'm admitting this, but I had to look up what hyssop was. LOL. Now that I know, I have to ask: how did you come up with such an out-of-the-box idea? My ignorance didn't deter me from the story - your writing captivated me throughout. Truly a wonderful, creative piece. Bravo!

Oh my! This gave me goosebumps and quickened by pulse. If I was giving out DAVEYs this week you would get a gold chia pet at the very least! How did you come up with the name Hussopo? Loved every line!

For the longest time throughout your piece, I was convinced that Hussopos was the Christ Messiah! Beautiful job of bringing a different perspective on the Cross!
