Baby Jesus

Tiny hands.
No scepter.
No palace balcony.
No crown on earth.
Later, a metal spike and a cross of raw wood.
Buying me.

Tiny feet.
Ribbons of linen.
Resting.
Later, from Bethlehem, to Egypt, to Nazareth and Galilee.
Into the Jordan, and out.
Power.
Walking strong.
Finding me.

Tiny eyes.
Sleeping.
Not yet seeing the mess we've made of His world.
Later, weeping.
Compassionate.
Observing me.

Tiny mouth.
Closed.
Content.
Later, speaking, defining grace, forgiving sin, raising the dead.
Calling me.
