Nobody Asked Me!!!!!!!
They spoke of me as if I wasnt there!!!
I came for this very reason, for it is the story of my life!!! Being the youngest in my family, Ive always been treated as one insignificant, because of my age and size. Always considered last, on the outside looking in as my brother and sisters speak about THIS MAN, whom everyone seems to know about , but me!!! Just the other day they were all at our house with their friends talking about the time they witnessed water turning into wine.
I, of course, was not invited to the wedding!!!
They talked among themselves with enthusiasm and excitement that I only hear and see in their eyes, all wide, as they describe the time He raised my best friend's sister from the dead. I smile to myself as I secretly consider that they are not all that smart , my friend told me that He put them all out of the house, because they did not really believe Him when He said that she was not dead but asleep.
No..they are not all that smart ..at all!!!
I ,of course, was not there. No one asked me nor was I invited!!
All of a sudden, shaken out of my thoughts, I hear Brother Andrew speak of my bag of lunch with more importance than "the lad". I am dumbfounded as he describes the contents of what I held in my hand and not my very name!!! Just as I was about to speak out...to at least tell them MY NAME....
I look into the eyes of Him as He gave directions to " make the men sit down," Something happened in me!! Whatever rose up in me..sat down immediately when I looked into the eyes of Love Himself.
And I let the bag go....
It did not matter that He did not ask me ...
He did not even speak my name. For, at that moment I knew He knew. Everything!!!
But as He spoke to them , He looked to me...He saw me and I in return beheld the love and the very essence of Who He Is and like magic, I received all that I thought I had to fight for ...
By letting go!!!
It did not matter that He did not say a word to me, but His look declared unto me that my being here was significant. To Him.
And I let go of everything as I beheld the face of Love!!!
