Far as the curse is found.

December 21, 2011

Them, singing: “He comes to make His blessings flow far as the curse is found.”

Her, tasting the words, tasting their meaning.

Them, continuing: “Far as, far as the curse is found.”

Her: Abba?

Her Father: Yes, child?

Her: How far is “far”?

Her Father: Well, child, how far has the curse reached?

Her: Everywhere!  Everywhere I look, Abba.  Far up as up can go, far down as down can go, far east and west as east and west can go.  And far inside, too, Abba.  Far, far inside.

Her Father: Yes, child.

Her: And “His blessings” — Your blessings, Abba — reach that far?

Her Father: “Far as the curse is found,” child.

Her, nodding the truth into her heart: Yes … Yes, now I understand the celebration, Abba.

Merry Christmas, “far as the curse is found.”
