To you Jesus, the One and Only…
explaining Your story to young minds and hearts pauses me, moves me to contemplation.
You left the glory of heaven. You came to earth.
little ones ask ‘why?’ and I explain :: but this heart is stirred, watery-eyes accompany my mind’s race to understand such profound love.
You promised to come :: and You did.
I am amazed and stunned really. The greatest story ever told still rocks my world, still leaves me speechless. Once again we pause to reflect on Your coming into obscure surroundings and situations. A humble entrance into a world that would both embrace and reject You.
will both accept and deny You.
I simply respond with adoration :: not always consistent or fervent, this act of worship. And I have no words fitting for such sacrifice…
…but perhaps maybe just that I love you and that I thank you.
