Image result for pictures of donkey carrying heavy load
“Father God, please lighten our load today. The precious but captive horse in this picture was not designed to carry the load of others; he or she was designed only to be precious and free (BOTH). No one, no human or nonhuman animal, need carry what is not theirs to carry. Your Son and our Savior died to carry all our fragile goods that are our ‘bads.’ I pray for all humans and nonhuman animals today to be lightened of their load that is not theirs to carry. The Blood of Jesus Christ dripped is how we are all able to drop what is heavy, fragile, and unnecessary. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious Name of Jesus Christ, and this prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are lacking. Amen.”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in dropping [through The Blood of Jesus Christ dripping] all heavy, fragile, and unnecessary load of ‘bads’ that I was never designed to carry this daily leavened [Jesus Rises!] bread.”)

You carry a truckload of fragile goods.

Your load is due for an overdue drop.

If you go any further in the woods

with worried load, it will be you who plop.

I oft carry what’s not mine to carry:

Hurts, fears, hates, jeers, these that make me not me.

How I lighten my load is primary:

God, First, Front, Center; me, last, back, “leastly.”

“Please let Me carry what is your ‘heavy,'”

says Jesus. “Your fragile goods are your ‘bads.'”

We lighten our load when gone the levee

between God and us, here the Dad of dads.

Jesus carrying our “stuff” is reward.

Blood dripped, so we drop! Lighten our load, Lord.
