Everything you ever needed to know about Romans will not quite fit into 14 lines of 10 syllables. So, I had to use 18.
Everything still didn't quite fit. :-)
I don't know what to think about this little exercise, but it was kind of fun. I figure everyone else is summarizing the book in more helpful ways, so I doubt I hurt anything by coming out of left field (again.)
As usual, I really liked the funny insights I get while trying to make things fit into 10 syllables. For Romans 6, I wrote this:
He bathed in death that you might rise up free
You drowned but rose, for holiness you're meant
I liked seeing baptism as more than a 1 second dip into death. He stayed under those waters for more than two days, and we were in Him the whole time. I don't know that it was profound, but it was a blast to picture.
FWIW, it's up at Timeless Prayer right now.
We are finally receiving our first 1/4 inch of snow. 2 inches is predicted, so I figure we ought to get at least 1/2 inch, and I figure I won't be hitting tennis balls this afternoon after all. It's about time.
My little hymn based on 1 Tim 3:16 didn't make much of an impression. :-( It's the downside of putting your heart into things that you hope they are enjoyed. Oh well.
Everyone was nervous about Federer facing Djokovic, but 3 sets later, Fed moves on. Wish I could see some of these matches, but they are all on at 3:00 AM, and I'm not man enough to be missing sleep right now.
Lord bless you all,
