It Came To Pass

It came to pass

And the aged parents were abiding in their riverside home, and the river was wide and troubled. They had heard that the tribe of Tom had a new princess and they went from  Putni in Surrerai to a village  far away. They wrapped in winter clothes as it was sorely cold and then went out. They  were troubled and cried “where is she born of Vicky and Leo,where is she the second born, the one they call Delilah.”

And they did consult their iphones and there was a sign. Ye shall find a babe wrapped in  swaddling clothes just off the Ful Hamroad.

They did search diligently. The aged parents did say one to another, Let us cross the wide and troubled river and see this thing which is come to pass.

And lo,the star which they saw north of the river, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. They went in haste  and the traffic did as if by magic part and the people were amazed and talked in tongues.

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Vicky her mother, and fell down and  worshipped her, and then they opened their treasures, they presented her with gifts; letters, lego and gold.

And it was a goodly thing and the heavens opened and lo,a spirit like a gold finch at the bird feed did fly into the sky and a voice cried from the wilderness, This is a daughter beloved by many for whom all are pleased. And the aged parents who were of four score and ten were full of praise, for all the things they had been told  on their iphones they had seen.

For it is written. And will be written again.

Delilah is now two days old. We saw her yesterday, she did open her eyes and it was a goodly thing.

NB On Sunday Vivien and I go to Australia for six weeks. When we return at the end of January Delilah will be going to university. No blogs till then, so Seasons Greetings to you all. I hope you all get as perfect a present as I have.

    Unto thee, o IPhone, do we give thanks: yea, unto thee do we give thanks and I said unto the fools, Dial not so madly: and to the ungodly, Set not up your horn in the traffic.
