Recapture the Story

I first heard the story as a young child

A sweet story

A baby

An innocent girl mother

The Son of God

But born in an odd place

A dangerous place

Sent from God

To teach us He loves us

To show us how to live

So that we might be truly happy, truly fulfilled, truly His children

The details grew as I got older

Some of the gaps were filled in with deeper understanding

But then, when we've heard a story over and over

It can lose it's magic, its meaning

Sometimes acting it out helps recapture the wondrous mystery of it all
