In 1972, I happened to watch a daytime talk-show with host, Phil Donahue. Johnny Cash was on to share about his video, Gospel Road, that was being released soon. They showed one small bit and it gripped my heart. Since then I've watched Gospel Road many times; this is still my favorite part.
You see, even though I had been a Christian for about six years, seeing Jesus play on the shore with children, flitting them in the air, digging with them in the sand, nuzzling their tummies, snuggling them against him -- all of that was beyond anything I'd ever imagined. With my hard background-- rarely hugged, rarely snuggled, rarely played with --this just invaded my soul.
Weeks and weeks ago, when I thought Children was going to be the carnival topic, this is what I wanted to post. I was sure I'd missed it during my month away. Seeing that it's what's up for this week, made my heart sing. Hope yours sings, too.
