The ONE THING for today

A Sunday reflection

 

The gift of myrrh

went from manger to cross.

Mary and Joseph said

thank you to the kings,

but Jesus, on the cross,

when offered wine with myrrh,

said no.

There are times when we, too,

must go heartlong into our pain,

knowing it’s the only way

we will get to Easter living.
