A LIFE OF LOVE.

Tiny toes and fingers curled,
Like the petals of a flower.
One day will Serve to help bring
Beauty, Grace and Power!
They grow an grow as time goes by,
Like grass beneath an April shower!

Tiny feet and hands,
 Waving in the air.
One day will Stand and Beckon others
To a Man beyond compare...
His only Aim in life -
To Give a Glimpse of God so rare!

Tiny eyes scrunched tightly shut,
Against the glare of light.
One day will Look upon a world
Steeped in darkness, blacker than any night!
Yet... anyone looking in His Eyes, 
Will see a future bright!

Tiny hairs upon His Head,
Soft as thistledown.
One day they will Serve...
While on this earth... to be a Crown!
Until that very last human day,
When they'll Support a thorny Crown!

A tiny mouth
Of rosebud shape...
One day wil Speak,
Leaving mouths agape!
His Aim to Speak God's Truth, in Love,
To Give Hope - a new future to shape!

A tiny body,
Pink and round.
One day will Hang
On a Tree which will become reknowned!
His beaten, tortured, earthly shell,
Laid in the ground...

Yet this tiny child
Has a Special Name.
It signifies Love, Truth, Compassion
And - yes - shame!
He Bears it just for YOU and ME,
So that people's broken lives will never be the same!

Nailed upon A Cross
And lifted high... 
Etched against one of His Own Creations -
The sky!
This He did for everyone, to set us free from the past.
To Enable us to let it go by!

No longer hanging
On A Cross.
He Holds His Arms open wide...
Offering Shelter...
A Place to Rest...
Where tortured souls can hide!

He Pours out His Love
Upon their wounds...
His Healing
Oil of Gilead.
Until they can step back
Into the world with pride!

Not in themselves,
But in His Love...
Knowing they are Created
By a Loving, Heavenly Father Above!
With heads held high, they hold out their hands - 
And help others to give evil a shove!
