Weeping Willow

The tree stood tall and proud

As it offered the woman it’s shade.

It tried so hard to protect her

for, it felt she was afraid.

 

She leaned against it’s trunk

Her sobs rustled through the leaves,

Sighing lightly like the breeze;

Echoes of a heart that grieves.

 

The tears ran like a river

And watered deep the roots,

Bringing forth the blossoms

That would later bear the fruits.

 

The tree stood tall and proud

As the soldiers checked it out.

“I think this one will do.

Cut it down,” he heard them shout.

 

They cut and carved upon that tree;

Stripped it of blossom and bark

Then, they made a rugged cross

That’s the day the world turned dark.

 

As Jesus hung upon that tree

He was the last fruit it would bear.

For, Jesus was the fruit of God

He was longsuffering and full of care.

 

The tree no longer stood proud,

As the blood of the Lamb did stain.

It bent with the weight of it’s shame

And it wanted to weep from the pain.

 

Jesus whispered to the tree,

“From this day forth shall you cry.”

Thus grew the weeping willow

That had watched the Saviour die.”

‘n Moerse diep VROUE gedig….

Ruk af jou bra, laat niks oppie aarde jou pla

Los jou hare vuil, kap groente met ‘n byl

Drink kleurige drankies.  Lê leeg op publieke bankies

Trek gesig vir jou man.  Want jy kan.

Lê rond en wees sleg.  Dis jou vroulike reg

Steek tong uit vir jou kinners.  Snuif ‘n bietjie thinners 😯

Rook boom    😯    Hou jouself geensins in toom

Laat jou beenhare groei.  Ry op ‘n koei

Skakel af jou kop.  Gooi nog ‘n dop

Po*p hard innie straat.  Wees ten volle on-paraat

Eet kerrie.  Gedra jou soos ‘n flerrie.  😆

Dis jou dag die.  Wanneer jy in die tuin kan pee.   😉

Druk jou irritasies ‘n pit.  Laat niemand op jou kop sit

Vlieg hoog.  Lê laag.  Sit ‘n horrible tattoo op jou maag.  😯

Dra rooi oorbelle.  Hang blink goeters aan jou ander los velle.

Celebrate jouself as vrou.  Niemand hoef van jou te hou.!

Kou ‘n chappie.  BUT WHATEVER YOU DO, JUST BE HAPPY!!

Hits

Na amper drie jaar 30,700 hits. Good golly!! 

😯       🙂

Fat problem!

Happy, Happy, Happy!!
