Born to die to hopelessness; born to live in God’s amazing grace.
Born to suffer and endure; born to rest in God’s warm embrace.
Born into worldly sin; born to learn of God’s great love.
Born to be forgiven by the Lord who lives far above.
Born to walk on this earth in humility and trials, yet in hope.
Born to be a light by showing the eternal brightness of tomorrow.
Born to feel pain, shed tears and quietly weep
Letting God gently wipe our tear streaked cheeks.
Born to live in renewed joy and peace today
While walking in God’s love throughout the outstretched day.
Born to endure the long nights when sleep does not come easily.
Born to quietly lie still while the Lord keeps us company.
Born not to remain stuck and glued to our hurting present or past
But to thrive in lasting hope while onto Jesus, holding fast.
Born to wait ever so trusting and ever so patiently
Knowing that one day, Jesus’ shining face, we’ll finally see.
Lovely tribute to Jesus & your Dad, Uncle Paul!
Thank you, Kathy!
