You see, I loved HIM dearly, I worshiped HIM from afar. In a man, what every woman seeks is sincerely; this is Jesus. Jesus was my distant star !
I had cooked for HIM , and served HIM, I had even walked with HIM, well behind. I had washed His garments, though He had never known it
I have watched His Ministry, so loving and kind.
It broke my heart when I heard about HIS trial. And to see HIM on the cross…
I had hurried to the grave on Sunday morning;
HE was not there ! , It was such a shock !
When I saw HIM at first, I thought He was the gardener.
“Where have you taken Him”, was my cry !
HE looked at me, as though I was His partner.
“MARY ” HE breathed.
I have never known so much in one expression !
HE KNEW ME, HE HAD ALWAYS KNOWN, KNEW ALL.
I was part of HIS creation, and HIS passion !
My heart responded to His call….. “MASTER ! “I cried, and I knew we were one.
I will go on serving, and loving you for ever, And whatever time there is to come, No power on earth or in heaven our oneness will sever.
(PS. I believe Jesus went home to prepare a place for her.)
