SASHA IN ARABY
Sasha slides crossly past the sprinklers
On the lawn
What business does his Person have
Turning them on?
This garden is one large sand tray
And Sash could really feel at home
If Mara wouldn’t mess it up with grass
And soggy, peaty loam.
Sand and sun and birds to catch
A Person of his own
Araby would be Paradise
If no for that darned sprinkler on the lawn.
Another cat from the past. From our early days in Araby, when we spent a lot of time at Mara's - and with her beautiful fluffy Siamese.
Its a sunny morning here - with a calm blue Channel outside. The Bavarian branch return for a couple of nights on their way back to Germany - and we are having another Thai takeaway. Col chauffered me to the meeting on Sunday morning - wonderful talk, given by a local brother.
How much we - the human race, the children of Adam - need the incoming Kingdom of God - the heavenly government that will make "all things new".
I can't think what I did yesterday, beyond my studying on the balcony. We - the worldwide congregations - are still in our detailed study of Jeremiah, trying to learn from his faithful example. And I did loads of washing so it would all get dry and out of the way before the visitors arrive.
