RUNNING & FALLING
From “rockin’ around the Christmas tree”
the night before,
To jumping up and down in glee
the next morning.
“Look what I got!!!”
Older ones may shed a tear
(like when my husband surprised me with a cruise one year;
my mom another year surprised by her fixed-up cedar chest…)
You would too,
if you’d seen and heard what they did.
are they falling down in exhaustion?
No, they’re suddenly aware of their smelliness, their lowliness…
“they fell down and worshiped him.”
For once, kneel when you pray today, or raise your hands… or just hug someone.
