For Emalyn whom Eleanor mentored…
Who is Jesus?
A little boy born in a barn in a small village to poor parents.
Two thousand, sixteen years ago.
I wish I understood how and why he came
still influencing billions of people today.
What I do know is that Jesus healed people.
Jesus taught, prayed, and gathered with friends.
He told great stories and collected enemies.
But who was he really?
A great man, yes! A spiritual being, of course!
Art painted, books written, stories told, still a mystery.
I continue to wonder who he was
more importantly who he is for me today.
In 77 years, I have rejected him,
I have followed him, I have admired him,
I have cursed him, yet here I am: A Christian.
Because of this unique man who called God Daddy.
