small in the large

There are only four questions of value in life. What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same: only love. ~Johnny Depp

this is my mantra.

this is my breath. 

for what am i if not a product of love and Love made flesh? of this Word that walked and stepped and bled for me and me alone?

this product of Love, i am. from this expanse of Almighty and All-Seeing comes this child.

why then...

oh, why do we insist on making Him smaller? 

are we that insecure, that blind to Him?

it makes me ache.

for He is sacred. He is spirit and flesh and God and Man. 

for me, He lived and wept and stepped.

for me, He broke and bled and died.

this wondrous thing.

this wondrous One. 

He is my value.

  6. "oh why do we insist on making him smaller?" This has been the question in my heart these past few weeks as well. You said it so beautifully.

  7. Beautiful post!


    This is something I sometimes have to ask myself because I sometimes don't give him as much attention as I should.

I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know there's nothing but light when I see you. :: Shinji Moon
