Many people may ask where I am from.
This question has many beautiful layers.
And often we think of just one
We think of location; the place, time, and year.
But my answer is one that I truly hold dear.
I come from so many places, and you may as well.
I come from a testimony that is so exciting to tell.
I come from the prayers of family; fervent and strong.
I come from tears; passionate and long
I come from the sacrifice; brave women and men
I come from a faithful heritage and stories of what has been
I come from the smiles of children holding onto my leg
I come from a wife’s gentle kiss; for which there is no need to beg.
I come fromt the laughter of friends; those I love so dear
I come from the mourning of the lost; wishing they were still near
I come from my personal reflections; my mortality as a man
I come from the Love of God; embracing His plan
Most of all, I come from a Christ who gave up His identity
For freedom, love and life eternally.
