Who ARE These People?

Shadows: Who Are These People? brokenbreadandsmallfish.com
Who ARE these people?
Where did they come from?
How did they get here?
...How did I get here 
among them?

Talking
Laughing
Sometimes fighting

Witnessing miracles
hearts and lives being restored

Eating and drinking
and sometimes crying

walking and talking
seeing the paralyzed dare to move

Watching the blind man begin to see

sometimes hurting
sometimes confused.

Helping You feed the hungry crowd

Taking the bread and wine
You are passing around

Walking on water to You

and

Running away in the dark

weeping
scattered
afraid
hiding...

together

waiting for You

together

seeing You come

together

going
doing
what You said to do

together.  

These people?

These are the ones
who followed

These are the ones
who are called by You.
(Mark 3:13-19)


Linking up with Velvet Ashes at The Grove where the word this week is "team"

    1. Thanks, Laurie - the picture is actually my daughter and I in our winter coats :-) a few months ago playing with shadows..I had forgotten about it, but when I was looking for a picture I felt would go with this poem - this one kept calling to me, even though I worried it wasn't bright or "attractive" enough - it just seemed the right match for the words...
