differs from some others'...
I see Him knocking down fences and walls
not built by His hands
but by those who do not understand
how He longs for us to run barefoot in the grass
and laugh until it hurts
and cry without shame
and share conversation and a bottle of wine
not just for the communion of Remembrance
but for the communion and celebration of the Present.
"Love Me. Love others as you love yourself." He calls out.
The simplicity and the complexity of all that is required echoes in my heart.
That is all I want for my son.
For him to grow to love Him with passion,
others with understanding,
and himself with sincerity.
And I realize the same is the Father's desire for me.
"Stand in awe of God's Yes." Psalm 128:4 The Message
