We Glean So Very Little Anymore

If anyone in this nation has any doubt that there is something much more in control than we are mark NOVEMBER 23,2008/ PLATTEVILLE, COLORADO as a time and location of an ANCIENT GOOD. That would have been the second day of the ancient practice of GLEANING that has been a part of most all agrarian cultures.Those of us that were on the “Seventh Day is Sunday” regime of ‘worship’ should have heard the song “Bringing In the Sheaves” (Knowles Shaw/George Minor: 1874/1880.
BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES Lyrics:

Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve;
Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

Refrain:( a term, not an action.)

Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,
Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,

Sowing in the sunshine, sowing in the shadows,
Fearing neither clouds nor winter’s chilling breeze;
By and by the harvest, and the labor ended,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

Refrain

Going forth with weeping, sowing for the Master,
Though the loss sustained our spirit often grieves;
When our weeping’s over, He will bid us welcome,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

Refrain

First and foremost I didn’t include the lyrics of this song as a promotion of ANY “belief”, only as a lynch-pin for those things that are far above us and to be secured in that position. Nothing more, because no matter the dialect the entire world is “IN NEED” [

I write this article while sitting at a “savior’s” home on this THANKSGIVING Day remembering just how many Americans are seeking the same type of assistance that those who have been “cataloged” onto INFERTILE soils did FOR the first suffering arrivals of what became this nation. Many who have arrived since came with the image of MILK and HONEY paving the avenues of the landscapes (sociological, economical, ethical. ethnical.). Hunger and livability are essentials that are law far past simple “business”.[ Today\’s food give away… ]

“We” are sitting behind a keyboard, “warm” and “cozy” while we write of our anger or disgust in ‘this or that’. A football game as our new Gladiator driven blood-letting crave.To those who are sharing meager sustenaces with others less fortunate, BLESS YOU. For those who have taken no time for those truly “IN NEED” you will no longer have an office in Washington, D.C. and may soon find your “golden parachute” tattered with no-one willing to provide you with necessary fare to “go on”. But that isn’t my responsibility… unless it’s presented to me then I’ll do what I ‘CAN’ with the little I have. As HAVE so MANY to and for ME.

To ALL who share this day remember to GIVE TRUE THANKS for what has been given, just remember that if it is much it was meant to be there for distribution to those who have no warehousing skills. The “bedouin” nature of some of us don’t allow us to keep SO MUCH within our GRASP. Therefore we GLEAN those fields we pass, so that nothing will be wasted.

By the way, the city of Platteville, Colorado resides in the MOST appropriately named county ever… WELD: as in a JOINING, to be made into one. Many made into ONE by FIRE… STRONGER THAN BEFORE.

Love and CARE seem to be in such short supply these days. It WOULD be wonderous to the ears of the WORLD if ALL could hear AND understand equally through an orchestra made up of the indigenous musical instruments they would recognize and appreciate, all gathered from being left behind when greed had stripped the field of HUMANITY.
