Like A Child

by the Rev. Steve Garnaas-Holmes


Dependent,

requiring the help of others.

Weak,

without ability to make it happen.

Graced,

without having earned it, receiving it as pure gift.

Wondering,

not understanding, only delighting.

Imaginative,

living not in a proposition but a story.

Needy,

seeking not to be right but to be loved.

Humble,

knowing you are not an only child.

Playful,

for not everything is So Serious.

Trusting,

willing to hand yourself over.

Vulnerable,

without power, status, standing, voice or recourse.

Hear it: vulnerable,

at risk, and likely the first to suffer.

Cherished,

as the beloved child of a parent

who would, and will, die for you.
