I like the word “delve.” I like to delve through a table of garage sale items. Doesn’t that sound better than I like to rummage through garage sale items? Oh, it doesn’t?
Okay, I won’t argue but I will delve into the subject of delving today. I delved into the lives of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. Did a bit of research, you know. I saw that they were married from 1958 to 2008. I was astonished; I didn’t know they divorced! Delving further I saw that they were no longer married after 2008 because Paul died that year. I was relieved; not that he died but that they did not divorce. 😀 Did you know they were co-stars in ten movies?
As to the picture introducing this word to me today. I didn’t know “One, Two, buckle my shoe” went past the numbers nine and ten. I like knowing the other half. It is not all that easy to find a word to rhyme with twelve; good job, Mother Goose.
So do I have any significant spiritual lesson from my delving into this little nursery rhyme? Nope………..
But I have a scripture, you might wish to delve into during this chaotic time when many are trying to drive wedges between various groups trying to stress our differences rather than our unity – the unity of being children of God. Hang in, My Friends, let’s not let what third, fourth, or fifth source make us suspicious of one another.
What did Paul say? Google’s words and description:
Paul writes to the Ephesians, “This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 3:6). This mystery has now been revealed through Jesus Christ: we are all one body. In Christ there is no longer any distinction.Paul Ephesians 3:6
It’s funny how those childhood rhymes translate…we were taught, “…eleven, twelve, dig and delve…” It doesn’t make much difference, though…for me, too, Oneta, that was my introduction to delving!
Your post left us with much to delve into itself!! Wonderful contemplation, Oneta! I offer a hearty Hear! Hear! To Paul’s solid message! Hugs to you!
I didn’t even know that Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward were married but I am glad to hear they did not divorce and were married for 50 years.
I knew they were one of the longest enduring marriages in Hollywood
DELVE is a great word. I personally love it. It is somehow deeper and more sifting than rummage where I tend to push aside what i don’t need or desire. Truly delving into the Word of God can change and should change our cherished or held beliefs on WHO God really is. Delve from Genesis to Revelations.! Glad to be reminded of the enduring marriage of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. Also Mother Goose….what memories!
