Talking To The Master
Posted 08-09-2010 at 09:41 PM by caninemom3
I had made a post to a thread here on the site called "Christmas Present Take Or Pass". I had posted the gift of being able to talk with any historic figure. George Broderick Jr.'s answer really started me thinking and thank goodness for George for posting it. He listed one of the people he would like to talk to as Jesus. What a wonderful conversation that would be !! To ACTUALLY talk face to face with HIM !! I imagine myself sitting across from Him. I can see him in my mind's eye. He has hair to His shoulders and of course a beard and He has the kindest and saddest eyes I could ever imagine. To be in His physical presence would be so peaceful, so full of a glowing kind of love I think. The kind of love not found on this earth, not ever experienced by me. Of course, He would have the scars from His first time on this earth. What would I say ?? Would I have the courage to speak ?? I think I would want to tell Him that I know I need to be more like Him. I would ask him why He even would want ME as His child ?? ME.......Does He know everything I have done ?? Everything I have said and the manor in which I have said it ?? Does He know how very mean and disagreeable I can be ?? What about what people are doing to this earth He has given us to live on and why does He seem to be gone so much making it feel as though I am speaking to nothing ? There are so many things I would like to say to Him. The most important things would be to wish Him a Happy Birthday and to thank Him sincerely for all that He has given and gives. I know that He would have suggestions for me to follow. I would listen intently and ask Him for the grace to allow me to take heed of those suggestions because I cannot do anything without His grace. The last thing I guess I would ask is how He can still love mankind after all the atrocious behavior humans have displayed ?? Before our meeting would be over, I would of course ask forgiveness and if I were allowed, I would give Him the BIGGEST hug humanly possible. I would tell Him I love Him, though it seems as though I do not a lot of the time and in my imagination, He would smile. To have Him hug me back and to see that smile, that would be all I ever needed for the rest of my life. To see Him smile in aproval would make me weep. But then He DOES hug me and all of us who believe in Him I think and I believe He even offers hugs to those, or tries to who do not believe in Him. I would not want to leave Him as I think He has been left too much already but in my imagination as I leave, I see those marvelous eyes and that kind and knowing face and even the scarred hands and in my imagination I know there is nothing I can do to separate myself from His love and I am so thankful and graced and I am at peace knowing that someday I will not have to leave Him behind any more.
