“When all my friends forsake me, when my enemies o’re take me, Precious Jesus be thou near!” © 2017 politITguy™
Balthazar: Your whole life is a miracle. Why will you not accept God’s judgment? You do not believe in miracles, yet God once spoke to me out of the darkness, and a star led me to a village called Bethlehem where I found a newborn child in a manger. And God lived in this child. By now, he is a grown man, and must be ready to begin his work. And that is why I have returned here, so that I may be at hand when he comes among us. He is near. He saw the sun set this evening as we did. Perhaps he’s standing in a doorway somewhere on a hilltop. Perhaps he is a shepherd watching, a fisherman. But he lives in all our lives. From now on we’ll carry his mark. There are many paths to God, my son. I hope yours will not be too difficult.
