Out on the Mira on warm afternoons
Old men go fishing with black line and spoons
And if they catch nothing they'll never complain
I wish I was with them again.

As boys in the boats call to girls on the shore
Teasing the ones that they dearly adore
And into the evening the courting begins
I wish I was with them again.

Chorus:
Can you imagine a piece of the universe
More fit for princes and kings?
I'll trade you ten of your cities
For Marion Bridge and the pleasure it brings

Out on the Mira on soft summer nights
Bonfires blaze to the children's delight
They dance 'round the flames singing songs with their friends
I wish I was with them again

And over the ashes the stories are told
Of witches and werewolves and Oak Island gold
The stars on the river they sparkle and spin
I wish I was with them again

Chorus
Can you imagine a piece of the universe
More fit for princes and kings?
I'll trade you ten of your cities
For Marion Bridge and the pleasure it brings

Out on the Mira the people are kind
They'll treat you to home-brew and help you unwind
And if you come broken you'll see that you mend
I wish I was with them again

Now I'll conclude with a wish you go well
Sweet be your dreams, and your happiness swell
I'll leave you here, for my journey begins
I'm going to be with them again.
I'm going to be with them again.

    I had honestly beeievld that you were hoping to be inspired to be challenged and pushed beyond what you ever beeievld you were capable. You are always courageously challenging others. Indeed, i had given up hope on ever truly being challenged by anyone i had let let it go categorized it as a mere pipe dream. I contented myself with challenging myself and underachieving for everyone of my professors. Until i met you and you drew your sword and challenged me to a dual. Of course, you won, which is to be expected. How can the disciple ever be anything but beneath her master? What you felt was me cutting you from dialogue at the airport felt like something else to me. It felt to me as though two glorious swords had clanged suddenly together in a true challenge between sisters. I truly beeievld we were in each others lives to keep each other sharp and focused to see through each others bull *beep*.. And call each other out on it. You had challenged me. I thought you were like me: craving a challenge. According to isaiah 61, the heaviness and darkness are no more. If you and i are experiencing their taxing burden today, you can rest assured that it is something inside of me and something inside of you that needs changing. When we walk about wearing the yoke of that heaviness/darkness the angels would be laughing, if it were not so tragic. For, we are walking about with a fictitious burden. The spirit of the sovereign lord is upon me (upon jesus christ),because the lord has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness (from unnecessarily dark and dreary castles) for the prisoners to proclaim the year of the lord's favor we no longer have to work to attain righteousness, sis. We no longer need to hold onto old beliefs that no longer work. We do not have to harbor resentments, for the vengeance of god is just this: i shall cancel your criminal record, if you will cancel the others criminal offenses committed against you. We do not have to build walls and sit to tea with sir fear anymore. As for emotional sophistication, well our father in heaven certainly does not model this in the prophets. Read isaiah 58. Then, skip over to isaiah 61. If god seems a little schitzoid in these books, it is because god is love. Love deplores emotional sophistication and moral superiority. And the love of god is blocked from flowing through me whenever i harbor fears and resentments. Our true and genuine righteousness is an inheritance in christ. We are one day to be clothed, not in our own pathetic man-made righteousness, but in the righteousness of jesus christ. How do we enter into god's promised rest?1-stop doubting and believe.2-ask anything in christ's name and you will receive it if you believe w/out a shadow of doubt that you have received it. But, you must first go and be reconciled with those against whom you hold grudges, so that your father in heaven will forgive your crimes. Assignment for you:ponder the following. The pharisees followed the law to the letter. They were truly quite astonishingly morally dominant and superior individuals seriously, i am not kidding they were. They slaved to follow every jot and tittle they worked work,.. Work they worked incredibly hard for their upstanding reputations among their society! What crime did these humans commit that jesus should say to them, woe to you pharisees you are in danger think about it christ never said any such thing to the prostitute who sat anointing him nor to the low down, rotton, no good tax collectors who he befriended (and one of whom he chose as a disciple). He never turned to the notorious criminals/sinners and said, woe to you criminals you are in danger who was more ready and prepared to enter into the rest that god had promised to israel back in the old testament? The pharisee or the notorious sinner? It is better to give up on our pipe dream of ever becoming righteous, than it is to hold onto this hope. Our hope is in christ jesus. Our shield is christ jesus not our works. Our good works are mere adventures that we are going to one day be pinned with decorations for having done them! You know the crowns we are to receive? We cannot be shrewd for the kingdom if we are in shackles. God respects shrewdness for his kingdom. We cannot be shrewd, because in shackles and chains we are not free to take risks we are too afraid to take risks. Our era will demand that we be very shrewd, while vowing to admit we have resentments and committing to facing these and working with god to bail them out of our hearts! Only then can we also be gentle as doves. Love ya sis,katie
