i was listening to “The River Unbroken” by Russ Taff.
Words so clear don’t need a lyrics sheet – there is this clear reference to a train but also relate to river…the song title is The River Unbroken and i ain’t hearing much about a boat (that sounded Canadian) Some one Show me the way!
We’ll return to the spiritual
parabolic, or am i trying to say parabolitic? (is that even a word?)
IT SHOULD BE,
Parabolitic, meaning Parable like or like a parable
Remember you are reading a post written by a metaphorical mind.
smartassh smartish phone won’t let you type certain words, like it is trying to translate for you and you try to type a simple name like my daughter Kyri and it keeps insisting on typing, auto correcting, me to cry or kryptonite or cryogenics or canoe, CANOE? I am trying to type the name K Y R I how did it get canoe? REALLY?!?!
Voice recognition would be even worse.
Well, let’s go with that,
you still on the same page?
Words to the song “The River Unbroken” by Russ Taff are so clear you don’t need a lyrics sheet – there is this clear reference to a train but also relate to river…
name of song “The River Unbroken”
I recall canoeing , paddling, down different rivers in canoes.
free up your sense of humor and adventure and take this lil’ trip with me
if you just can free up your imagination for a few seconds.
This parable will not work, it just won’t , it just won’t (FROWNY FACE) !
(smerk) unless you imagine with me . . .
here let me draw a line
NOW you should be ready to go on this adventure that is really a cool lesson but don’t tell your playful fun side that or you’ll overthink it.
so shhhh about the lesson (that is a secret)
Jump into this canoe with me and one other person in the middle (you in back, friend in middle, me up front).
We’d be cruising, gliding thru the water smooth, but then…. (troublesome MUSIC Duh Duh Duhhhn!) …
we come to a point in this river where it is shallow, i mean very shallow (like some people) and we’ve
RUN A GROUND ! ! !
(more dramatic music if you like but no violins . . . yet)
Oh no, what will we ever do?
Is the river broken?
Is the canoe malfunctioning?
If the person in the back would just steer correct this would have never happen!
WHAT DO WE DO?!!?
What ever shall we do?!?!?!
The trip is over.
How do we get to the cara”van” (Train) Gloryland Train by Audio A waiting at the end of the river to pick us up?
We should have never gone on this stupid trip!!!!
What are we supposed to walk on water ? ! ? !
If there was enough water maybe we could but now ““we stuck”!
Nature, huh, who needs it? i probably missed so many txt messages ! ! ! !
So glad the guy in the middle put his Bible in a ziplock cause we about to get wet.
Great ‘youth trip‘!!! (with some sarcasm)
This sucks DIRT man!!!
ok, so what do i, we, us DO?!
(3 people in this canoe)
(Que the violin music played by Hugh)
(shedd a few tears and wrinkle your forehead with me in great despair)
(Turn that smile upside down)
we’ve reach a shallow part of this beautiful river, the river is not broken, it is not wrong or something that we can change.
It is just too shallow here for whatever reason, that is what rivers do.
The river is not broken, it is “DOING what it DO.”
Some people be like, “that why i don’t do rivers!”
“What if it tip?”
It is just too shallow here! We’ve hit the bottom, rock bottom.
We were doing pretty good, it was even kinda fun.
But now…now, this ain’t no fun!!!
So what do?
We, remember there IS 3 of us, WE have to get outta the boat, pick up the canoe & all 3 of us CARRY it to where the river flows smooth again.
So, Carry on we do!
- Get over the shallow part that is naturally there from time to time.
- Get back in in boat.
- Paddle to the end (press on, paddle on Philippians) .
- At the end be ready to board the train.
- Ride it for free (“Free Ride” song audio adrenaline).
- Live the good kingdom living now so you’ll be welcome as a friend to live in THE Kingdom when that final train comes.
