Porpoiseful Produce

There once was a banana named Ben

He loved the water, but it wasn’t his friend

He came up so fast that he got the bends

And the waves kept crashing again and again

He was safer at home with the apple and pear

He had plenty of friends who were quite the fine fare

But, nope, he was set on the call of the waves!

A strange place for a banana

He was thought a bit strange

So he dove down deep and came up too weak

The kiwis we’re sure the prognosis was bleak

They called the paramedic—a pineapple named Hannah 

Who tended to Ben—the dolfin banana.

Now for something purely purposeful. ❤ And not in the slightest bit bananas. 😆 On the contrary, this is really quite beautiful.

“Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me.”

–Psalm 42:7 ❤

“Deep calleth unto deep — One affliction comes immediately after another, as if it were called for, or invited by the former. This [King David] expresses by a metaphor taken from the old flood, when the upper deep, or collection of waters in the clouds, called for the lower deep, or abyss of waters in the sea and rivers, and in the bowels of the earth; that both might unite their forces to drown the world. Thus the Chaldee understands it. Or the metaphor may be taken from the sea, when its waves rage, and deep furrows are everywhere made in it, into which ships, and the people in them, sink down, and then rise and sink again, successively and continually.”

Benson Commentary

“The way to forget our miseries, is to remember the God of our mercies. David saw troubles coming from God’s wrath, and that discouraged him. But if one trouble follow hard after another, if all seem to combine for our ruin, let us remember they are all appointed and overruled by the Lord. David regards the Divine favour as the fountain of all the good he looked for. In the Saviour’s name let us hope and pray. One word from Him will calm every storm, and turn midnight darkness into the light of noon, the bitterest complaints into joyful praises. Our believing expectation of mercy must quicken our prayers for it.”

Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary 

So beautiful. So true. Amen. ☺ ❤
