From before time
To the fullness of time
The Word existed
In complete happiness,
Total peace,
Love Itself.

Time began;
Man created,
Masterpiece,
In His own image
And likeness,
Given dominion.

Man failed Him,
Doubted Him,
Turned away from Love.

Sin entered,
Bringing suffering
And death.

Omnipotence knew
Man’s plight.

The All-Loving desired
Experience.

Watching, guiding
Wasn’t enough.

Word became Flesh
And entered in,
Lying in straw,
Traveling far,
Learning to walk,
Skinned knee needed kissing.

Human discomforts:
Hunger,
Exhaustion,
Muscle aches,
Broken heart,
He now felt.

God with emotion,
Anger,
Frustration,
Humiliation,
Rejection.

Physical pain:
Scourging,
Crowning,
Spitting,
Carrying,
Nailing,
Piercing His Heart.

Now he knows;
He really knows.
He’s been there,
Done that.

Why? It’s
Crazy Love.
