I love words. I love grammar and I love vocabulary. And, of course, I love writing words. I have always admired those who can use words – eloquently, humorously or any of a hundred other ways – to express themselves. Poetry and songwriting are some of the most expressive ways to convey a thought. An idea. Or, simply, your heart. I used to write poetry. I have even tried writing lyrics. To be sure, it does not come to me nearly as easily or smoothly as it once did.
Today’s prompt immediately reminded me of a song – The Value of One. (By Josh Wilson, I believe.) I think the lyrics speak for themselves. If you’ve never heard it – listen here….but I think the written words are powerful just on their own. Enjoy. Hopefully, the season of yesterday’s Thanksgiving will remain and we will continue to be humbled and amazed at the price Christ was willing to pay for us…and that He willingly did so!
