We The People

Lily among Thorns Song Of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3

Shape Up and Fly Right, Chapter 2, Page 57

Shut up! And I’ll be the one to ask the questions here! Now, Mr, Everett, if you are serious about getting your family through this night without any hardships, you and your family had better cooperate fully and do whatever you are told. Am I making myself clear!”

Dad responded by trying to be the voice of reason. “Yes, of course. But there must be some mistake. You must have the wrong house. I assure you my family and I have done nothing wrong.”

We all then came to learn right quick there was no reasoning with brutality, and in the same  like manner before, the very same foul-mouth brute who ignored Dad’s common sensibilities from the start finally got to the heart of the matter for this unwelcome visit.

Author’s Commentary

Startled out of bed by the blatant pounding at the front door. Lily for propriety sake quickly slipped on her slippers and her matching pale yellow quilted robe over her floor length flannel nightgown, to straightaway run out the door to meet up with her mom and dad and her two younger brothers in the hallway.

The family is bewildered by this turn of events, because it is none other than the authorities demanding entry into their home. 

Lily begins to explore the possibilities for such an unwelcome visit, and hoping against hope. She is of the mind this  intrusion into their lives is just one big misunderstanding, and this to shall pass.

All in good conscious Lily cannot allow herself to reason away the meaning for this disdainful encounter, of which she alone might be responsible. Lily feels helpless to prevent the forthcoming series of brutalities. And on this night she experiences a  paradigm shift. Coming to find there is no longer a safe harbor for her, and to her soulful heart this includes the place she once called HOME.

Lily’s  sensibilities surmise the world is on a downward spiral to the deepest darkest mountains of the earth and she to was now about to be propelled on the same godless trajectory as it is written in Jonah 2:6, I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast though brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.  

Lily enduring first hand the disloyal breach of promise to “We The People” civil liberties, she begins to refocus her attention away from the brazen world and onto the safe haven of the Lord’s trusted covenant as it is written in Hebrews 10:16, This is the covenant I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them.
