Limping


Removed beautiful painting by Colline Bourque, participant in Art2Life Workshop.

You come to me limping

Bur never no mind

You’ve come to know Jesus

In service so kind

You weep with folks hurting

Have been there in spades

But now you have comfort

To show what Christ made.

Quite humble, a listener

A shoulder to lean

While all around that One

Sees folks who are mean

Competing, condemning

What good can they do?

Success, in you missing?

Out the door…they’re through.

But limpers whose equity

Makes room for the lost

The infirm or slandered

Whatever the cost.

I’m thinking of Jacob

Night’s work made a Prince

The crisis of Purpose

Been kind ever since.

Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
